One of my favorite spots: Lost Dutchman Road
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).

This scene may not be a stranger to some of you. It most definitely isn't for me. Since I've started seriously chasing storms earlier this year, I've probably taken photographs from this spot 10 times? I can't help it. The road and cliffs stay the same, but the light, the shadows and the clouds always change.
I'll probably throw something together someday with all the different views of this place over the course of a year.
I photographed this last Monday while out with my daughter. She was in her car seat, watching Toy Story on the DVD player and I was setting up in the middle of the road. I can't wait for the day she can go out there with me and appreciate the view from this spot. I hope she enjoys it as much as I do.
This is a six-bracket exposure using my trusty Tamron 17-35mm 2.8, Photomatix, CS5 and other goodies.
