    Welcome to Photo of the Day. The POTD thread was started by iGary in May, 2006 and converted to a monthly thread in November 2007 by Arn. POTD is one of the most popular picture groups on MacRumors, often exceeding 500 posts and 20,000 views per month.

    Photo of the Day is intended to be a showcase for your best pictures. There is no limit to your gear, just your imagination. P&S and film cameras are welcome along with DSLRs. There are no themes like the Weekly Contest, and no winners (or losers) either.

    Policies

    *One Photo per Day - Don't post more than one photo each day.

    *Multi-Quote - To comment on several photos, click the "+ (Multi-Quote) button. This puts all your comments in one post. Multi-Quoting is required on all of the MacRumors forums.

    *SFW (Safe for Work) only - This is a site - wide rule. If you wouldn't show it in a public place, then it's NSFW (not safe for work). Think before you post.

    *Describe your photo - Tell what it is and where you took it. If you know the EXIF data of a photo, include it. The following EXIF fields are recommended: Camera, ISO, Focal Length, Shutter/Aperture and Lens.

    So I entered my first art exhibition / competition yesterday. The theme was based on politicians and I took out the 'highly commended award'. Which I think, basically translates to the 'well done, you're the first placed loser'. :)

    Baseball season is winding down and my favorite team to put it mildly stinks. How I long for the 1984 Detroit Tigers, for that was a special summer. One of my favorite Tigers player from that team.

    I am always in awe that even as summer winds down and the heat has sapped the strength of so many of my flowers, still there are other that don't even come into their own until this time of year. What a reminder to weather the seasons.

    FYI, this is a stacked image of seven frames.

    Thanks, I have a feeling this will be printed at A1 size for my exhibition in a couple of weeks. Printed on a matte rag paper with an Epson Stylus Pro 11880, which I'm itching to have some panoramas printed on! :)

    Thanks, Peter. I was tempted to paint in the two pelicans from a normal frame, so they had crisper details to them, but decided against it. I like the idea of the subtle movement being visible to them. After some recent long exposures, I have been playing with bird colonies and capturing them over thirty seconds, one minute, three minutes and four and a half to six minutes, with some really fascinating results. Well, they are fascinating to me. :D

    I agree. The gentleman who owned our house before us was amazing with Roses. For the past 4 years living here, we have had a constant flourish of colour from the Roses we inherited. He somehow had them planned and laid out so that From late spring through to late autumn we get a flash of colour.

    Again, no matter how amazing we get technologically, nature always wins.

    Lovely image Molly Macro Maestro.

    Adds beautiful scale to the place. I bet it was a wonderful moment sitting there enjoying the view. I hope there weren’t 50 people stood behind you waiting for you to move ruining the moment.

    Another shot of Derwent Water in the Lake District, UK - after the sun had set, casting reds and pinks on the few remaining clouds. A night I'll remember for a long time as I actually felt like I had got away from it all during my holiday. It was so peaceful.

    Fuji X-T2 with XF16-55mm f2.8 lens using Formatt Hitech Firecrest 10 stop solid Neutral Density filter and a Lee Filters 0.3 Neutral Density Soft Graduated filter.
