Slam is our featured photographer on the DPNow Picture of the Day this time. This shot is one from way past in the DPNow gallery, back in February 2007. Some say that selective colour in mono images can be clichéd, but I think this is a good example of how it works well. Red is often the choice of colour, but here we have a shade of pink. The pink hues in the otherwise milky looking winter sky add a surreal feel to the scene. One wonders where the child and, presumably his or her father, are going and what they are thinking.

Would you like one of your pictures featured on DPNow's POTD?

We are always on the look out for great pictures posted to the user-galleries here on DPNow. POTDs are selected from the gallery and featured every week day. The gallery facility here is completely free; all you need to do is register as a user on our discussion forum and you will get an automatic 25MB of space, which is good for around 125 pictures uploaded at web resolution, about 200K per picture. At the time of writing we had just over10,000 pictures on the galleries and it's well worth a browse.

Picture of the month

At the end of each month we will select our favourite image of the month and declare a Picture of the Month.

The DPNow Golden Gallery

Our ultimate accolade, the DPNow Golden Gallery, is reserved for what we feel are the very finest images. We invite anyone to submit their pictures for inclusion in the Golden Gallery. Why not have a look at the Golden Gallery submission form? The vast majority are usually rejected, which is why we feel that the ones we do feature are extra special.
