    Continuation of the previous Picture of the Day

    Thought it would be fun to share one of your best every day - doesn't matter what it is, just as long as it is decent (no nudes or overly graphic shots). You can add a picture everyday as long as it is different.

    It does not matter when the picture was taken, as long as you only post ONE SINGLE IMAGE per day. Make sure to post a date, location and description.

    Please use this format when posting:

    Blue Angels Flight Demonstration, U.S. Naval Academy/Severn River 5/24/06

    And if you like, post your EXIF data, so others may learn if they want to - but please use the following format (optional). If you do not know what you have or only have a couple of bits, post those, but in the order listed below, leaving out the titles of what you do not have, please.

    Camera: Canon EOS 20D
    ISO: 400
    Focal Length: 220mm
    Shutter/Aperture: 1/1000 @ f11
    Lens: EF 100-400L f4.5-5.6 IS USM

    Just out of curiosity... why the continuation? Was the original thread getting too large?

    Not going to question the continuation. Not even a great picture. I just wanted to be first. This is from when some Buddhist monks came by the University to create some art for us. Really bad light, and no tripod, but here it is.

    Yeah the original one was pretty big. I was wondering if it was going to get remade.

    Despite the fact that large threads are split up into multiple pages, it actually takes up more "resources" (don't know the technical words to describe it) for you to go into a single page of the Picture of the Day, with only 20 posts in it, than it is for me to go into another thread with only 20 total posts in it.

    So basically, the amount of resources used is dependent on the size of the thread itself, and not just the number of posts in the particular page you want to look at.

    This happened once before on a board I used to go to many years ago, and that was the explanation we were given back then.

    Unwashed Feet
    September 23rd, 2007
    New York City

    Nikon D40
    1/80 sec at ƒ/3.5
    18mm
    ISO 200​

    I used a wide aperture and the built in flash to isolate the feet from the rest of the body. In post processing, I desaturated a bit and did some burning and dodging as well.

    Yep. basically. When the server loads a page of a thread with 8000 replies, it has to sort through all of those.

    St. Peter's Square in Vatican City from right in front of the basilica.

    Hasselblad w/50mm probably around f/8 or so, hyperfocused.

    Shot on Kodak Portra 160VC.

    I made an action that basically adds 60 pixels of white to the canvas size. Then 5 pixels of black. It's under Image->Canvas Size

    perfect exposure! Man, look at that tonal range. Digital has a long way to go.

    Wow, Seenew. Those are simply amazing. I just love the 'feeling' they have. The tones, the great, in your face grain (is it even still grain?) Anyways, they certainly have a magic quality to them.

    I love it.

    Wow. Great photograph. What film was this?

    I'm with Seenew, digital has a long way to go before it even starts to catch up to film...thats why I almost always grab my Nikon F3 and some Tri-x over my D80.

    Mod note: We are going to try something a little different and have a "Picture of the Day" thread each month, rather than a behemoth thread. So this one will be for November 2007 (and I'll edit the thread title as such).

    Thanks!
