November photo contest: our pick of the day

Categories: Canada, Community

If you feel like a break from the usual macro shots of flowers and insects, CBC Community member JasmineDaniel has a fascinating alternative for you today. Her picture entitled "Perspective" shines the light on a pile of dried evergreen needles near Minden, Ont.

The use of a shallow depth of field on the middle of the needle pile gives the illusion of a 3D effect at the first glance. The flash of sunlight adds another visual anchor to the shot and reminds us that for the best photos, the sun can be your best friend and light source.

The Community team is looking for your best macro shots and the Multimedia team will be on hand throughout the month to provide tips to help you capture that perfect picture.

There are more tips on macro photography in our Nov. 3 pick of the day post.
