The red dot by Horacio

Today, our featured photographer on the DPNow Picture of the Day is a familiar talent from Argentina, who is registered on the DPNow forum and galleries as Horacio.
Horacio was feature on Pictire of the Day here on DPNow last October. He has a very keen eye, as his gallery will demonstrate if you visit.
Today's pick is a great example. What just might be a close view of a car with a dust sheet covering it, is transformed by the red (orange?) dot on the wheel rim. It grabs one's focus and makes everything else makes sense in the frame. And, no - Leica fans - it wasn't taken using one of Wetzlar's finest cameras.
Be sure to let us know what you think of Horacio's POTD, either here (below) via the DPNow forum or on the gallery page itself, via the comment facility.
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.

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.
