Today’s selection comes from the UK Ministry of Defense photostream. Sgt Mike Fletcher shot self-titled “Portrait of a Soldier from the Royal Regiment of Scotland” on Jan. 21, 2010, using the Nikon D3. Vitals: f/3.5, […]
“Displaced Australian” Neil Howard spent some years in Singapore before ending up in the United Kingdom. “I am living in Alderney in the English Channel. My work takes me to many places in the World, but […]
They say that “the devil is in the details”, which takes on different meaning applied to the crisp, compelling photography of Luca Rossato. Some of his portraits evoke religious overtones by the props used, like the […]
Picking a pic from the photostream of Eric Verdaasdonk is easy. This series only features images with Creative Commons licenses, and among his 5,000-plus there is but one so designated. He shot self-titled “After the […]
Is this one instance where color would work better than black and white? When shooting the Leica Camera AG M Monochrome and Summicron-M 35mm f/2 lens, as Mick Orlosky did on Nov. 2, 2013, color […]
Sigh, Dani Alvarez makes choosing one pic nearly impossible. But as the series approaches its ninth month, I must also consider what has come before; nothing is quite like our winner. He shot self-titled “Grande […]
Few photostreams are as barren as that of Dianmas Jaya; fourteen lonely photos. He shot self-titled “Pure Happiness” on Feb. 17, 2013, the month after joining Flickr., using Nikon D90. Vitals: f/2.8, ISO 200, 1/640 […]

Take pictures of your kids that look like the photostream of Amanda Tipton and you will make a memory book they will cherish as adults. Her art delights so much that picking one pick is misery. I could choose a dozen breathlessly. Self-titled “Free Ride” takes the Day for composition, perspective, candor, and as demonstration the importance of having the camera with you and using it!
“No he has never done this before and no I didn’t ask him to; lol”, she says. “But because I didn’t want my camera to melt in the hot car I happened to have it in the store with me. Of course, I probably looked like the worst mom ever snapping pictures before I told him to get up; haha”. I say best mom ever. Amanda captured the moment on July 18, 2012, using Nikon D700. Vitals: f/2.2, ISO 720, 1/250, 35mm.
Following up yesterday’s HDR-shooter, we present another, Wendelin Jacober. Self-titled “Feel free” takes the Day for composition and timelessness. There is something iconic about the photo—and that ignoring the dog standing as interesting element. He […]
I generally don’t bother with HDR, and my post-processing is limited as possible. Main reason: I don’t have time. Another: I prefer to set the camera to capture what my eyes see. That said, this […]
Sometimes simple says more by being less—as is the case with our Day taker. Lauren Hammond shot self-titled “And They Lived Happily Ever After” on Sep. 14, 2011, using Nikon D3000. Vitals: f/4.2, ISO 250, […]
