Dorwin Falls Project: 2
If you love an image (whether it's yours or someone else's) and want to make sure others get a chance to see it, you can “feature” it by choosing the “Spotlight” button.
When an image is Spotlighted, it receives enhanced visibility in premium spots throughout the site. Spotlighted images are rotated through these higher-visibility positions to ensure the best opportunity for the images to be seen by JPG users.
If you see a great photo that would make a perfect entry for one of our Shoot Out photo contests but it was uploaded by another user, now you can enter that photo in the contest and, if it wins, you get to share in the contest winnings.
Like a photo editor, if you've got an eye for great work, find it and submit it to a contest. If it wins, since you staked the entry fee, you'll take home part of the prize (the rest, of course, goes to the member who shot the image).

At around 3, I set up. I stand on the wooden platform that juts out and 100 feet above the lower part of the falls. One other person is there, and I wait until he is gone. As he walks off, the platform stops shaking, and I start shooting.
The temperature hovers around -20 C, or -8 F, and after about thirty minutes, the aperture on my camera freezes at f/16. I try a few exposures at f/38 which blows out all the highlights.
Forty minutes in, my battery starts to malfunction, and I'm forced to abandon exposures more than f/8.
My fingers and feet start to go numb at four o'clock, and my camera all but shuts down.
I call it quits and dart back to the car, where I discover the only real damage to my camera is that I've reduced the battery life. My fingers and toes come back to life a little later.
This is one of the last good exposures from today.
