La Chapelle royale in Château de Versailles, by PJPhoto

Philip James Filia, or PJPhoto on the forum and galleries, is our featured photographer on the DPNow Picture of the Day, today. Philip is a pro photographer from California, but we tend to see more of his personal photography. A previous POTD from Philip was taken in Paris, and today's picture comes from the outskirts of Paris, at the palace, or Chateau, of Versailles. The grand building was first constructed in 1664 and was purported to be for the mistress of Louis XIV. Philip has captured the essence of the chapel, lining up a super perspective. The natural lighting is just right, too. This picture really makes me want to go and visit the chateau.

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.
