Photo Of The Day 11/8/2012
The Grand Canyon by Jeff Rose
Places like the Grand Canyon are ideally-suited to side-light photography. Jeff Rose submitted this photograph to the new Sidelight Assignment and it’s today’s Photo Of The Day. The lighting reveals the structure and dimension of the Grand Canyon landscape while front light tends to flatten out a scene like this.
Get your photos into the running for the Photo Of The Day by submitting the OP galleries. I select a Photo Of The Day everyday. Images come from Your Favorite Places, Assignments and the contest galleries. The Assignments and the Your Favorite Places sections of the website have been improved with larger photos and new functions. Take a look at the improvements. You can see more of my Photo Of The Day selections on the OP Blog. The Fall Color 2012 Assignment has been extended and it’s open for submissions through November 7.
