Michael Vanbeber's photo from the Indian Peaks Wilderness in Colorado is today's Photo Of The Day. He submitted the photograph to the Your Favorite Places gallery. Vanbeber used a Sony A700 to capture this backlit scene. To learn more about shooting with backlight, check out Justin Black's article on the topic in the September issue of OP.
I select a Photo Of The Day every day. I choose the images from the various OP galleries including Assignments, Your Favorite Places and all of the OP Contests. Also, for each issue of the magazine I go through the Assignments galleries and choose a few to be featured in The Best Of Assignments in print and I select a weekly winner to be featured on the OP home page. To get your photos into the running all you have to do is submit them.
