Photographer: Margaret Schmidt Comments: A photo I've been playing with trying to get that old time portrait look with a charcoal look... Camera used: Canon D60
Well, this is my first choice for POTD and boy o boy was it a difficult choice or what? There are some SUPERB submissions, really there are. How you guys maintain your standards day in and day out, I really don't know. In the end, my choice was The Lady In Red - there's a sort of mystery about her that's simply beguiling.
No, the Photo of the Day winners are great actually, but some of you have expressed honest concern about the image quality being shown here. Starting with the next POTD winner published (on 2/16), the image you see here will be just a "thumbnail" you click on it to view the full-size image. I am sorry that I haven't been doing that yet, it's still a new system for me but I think it will be cool to have all of the POTD winners for the week on this one page. Then, you can just click on the image if you're interested in seeing it at the highest resolution.
