#21. Tammy Thomas Finding a building you love and can keep coming back to can be one of photography’s most rewarding self assignments. There is so much to be learned about photographing the same subject at different times of the day in different light.Many of you...

#22. Molly Hoover A couple of things about our British friends.   First, they know very little about real heat. (I’m a graduate of the University of Missouri.) Secondly, anyone who drinks their beer warm isn’t going to have the decensy to cool off their watermelon,...

#23. Mercy Shinsky It’s always fun to share a little winter chill in the middle of the summer. This was taken in Yellowstone a while back and by all the by laws of Fan Photo of the Day that’s perfectly acceptable. At this particular moment snow has the ability to take...

#24. Joan McCarthy Grooming can take a hit after weeks of home schooling. (I mean that in the nicest possible way. She is unbelievably cute!)   But Joan had the good sense to leave it all alone and just push the button. I’ve said it so many times and I have been...

#25. Tina Auten It’s grandfather and grandson reading Harry Potter out loud; Tina and her husband had him for the first month of the quarantine and they read a bit every day.   I wonder how long it’s going to take before every single photograph, regardless of subject,...

#26. Brandi Opper Booth What’s the movie where the heroes are hiding right out in the open? This is a lot like that. You have to look pretty carefully but it’s completely worth it. I loved this, Brandi. You can leave feedback on this photo below then click "next"...

#27. Susan Marsh This just in from the Real Life Department. Susan, I think this is just fantastic, It’s a wonderful piece of photo journalism. My now deceased, famous photo journalism professor would have gone gaga over this. Storytelling at its best. (He also would...

#28. Marilyn Tschorke If I could give you all a little Valentines gift, first and foremost it would probably be an appreciation for good lighting.   Then, secondly, it would be anticipating when the good stuff is going to happen. That is, expecting the good moments to...

#29. Rachel Hardesty This picture had to be taken with a phone.  I know why some of you will think it’s a bit sad but it’s such a sign of the times it makes me smile.   The angle is just right. The camera is in exactly the right place to tell the story. The background...

#30. Robert Rear I sort of don’t know where to begin. This picture is just world class. The structure of the feathers and the shape of the wings is just amazing. (Bob used an extremely fast shutter speed to freeze all of this action, probably something like 1/2000 of...

#31. Rhonda Cooper SanFilipo This was taken a year ago at Rhonda’s son’s Boot Camp graduation. She put it up now because he’s posted and won’t be home for a while…gone for Christmas. I’m not going to say anymore except that that this is really a nice photograph....

#32. Terryl Hicks Body language is a beautiful thing. I promise you that one day when these boys are old with achy knees and other achy things they will look at this picture and recognize their teammates simply by the way they stand…long after they have...

#33. Sarah Hopper I want you to notice what Sarah has left OUT of this picture—two large elephant bodies. Believe me, it wasn’t so obvious that this was a good idea when Sarah was taking the picture. But getting in close on all the tangled trunks and tusks is...

#34. Beverly Siegfried One of a good photographer’s greatest skills is to know how to deal with a long anticipated situation when it decides to turn a corner. Don’t let it get you down. There are so many ways to make something beautiful! Beverly, if it will make you...

#35. Laura Evoy I love the way that Laura’s simple and meaningful words complete the circle of this special relationship. The composition and the space around them and the tilts of their heads all works. And of course the black and white just nails it. Laura said:...

#36. Melissa Ann I love Melissa’s words as much as the photo. Notice the effect of the two together.   Melissa’s words: “If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change”.. Some may say the beauty is on the outside of these windows, but I...

#37. Amy Jo Nagelkirk Another from our Mother’s Day files. It’s Amy‘s first grandbaby and daughter. Having the camera ready when real life happens is what many of the great ones have built careers around. Totally love this. Thanks for posting, Amy. You can leave...

#38. Bee Cooler   I honestly don’t know if Bee was lying on her back when she shot this or if she put the camera on self timer and plopped the camera in flowers and crossed her fingers for a photographic Hail Mary or something in between. Regardless, that little...

#39. Carrie Dauenhauer Stanley Photographing spider webs is almost always about lighting and choosing backgrounds carefully. That’s how you get those threads of whatever it is to glow. Dew certainly helps.   Notice the way the brightest beads of dew light up against...

#40. Christy Eilers Wade How does this picture work so well? It’s the background. It’s the placement of those two dogs against the brightest and darkest areas of the background/the rug and floor. That background is making it easy for your eyes to go right to the good...
