I spend most of my time on the Front Range but spend every other weekend, sometimes more, on the western slope (Steamboat area, specifically).

I never knew where in Colorado you actually were, ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' chazoe.

' dacrazyrn

Apparently we all like D3/700's, oddly enough...

And not sure why you always forget about me being in Colorado, since lots of my photos are pretty... Colorado-y :)

Howdy, jump in, have a good time, maybe, like me, you will learn some useful things along the way.
Commenting on photos by other people can help you a lot to learn what it is that you like in photos. A lot of the people here will respond by commenting on your photos as well. Side challenges are great for that, and for meeting the DPC people.

Also, I shoot with a D300 as well so I'm more than well acquainted with it.

^^^^ Best understatement ever.

Welcome Bob. Run away. Now.

I'm in Rifle. Spend a ton of my weekends and most of hunting season in the flat top/meadow lake area, if you know where that is.

My shots aren't that Colorado-y, I'm still working on my landscape ability.

I guess there are more Coloradans here than I realized.

Great advice, and get in there and vote. Go straight through the images presented rather than cherry picking from the thumbnails. Spend some time with each image to analyze what works, what doesn't, and how well it fits the challenge. Your own photography will improve as you do this. Your scores may or may not improve, that will depend on how mainstream your artistic style is, but your techniques will definitely benefit.

Oh, and welcome, Bob.

Welcome Bob, I'm sure you'll have a great time shooting for the challenges and look forward to seeing your photos, just have fun.

Born in Durango, lived in a list of places in the area, with the lion's share of my time in Farmington NM.

Durango is awesome. I'm a Rifle lifer, but we travel all over the state, especially the western part. Our favorite place to camp and hangout is Ouray.

Thanks to all of you for your replies, I do shoot for microstock ...

Welcome -- note that we have a whole forum section on stock photography ...

As mentioned, check the rules carefully the first few times you enter as they can be a bit confusing and arbitrary, and don't be afraid to ask questions and make comments.

Welcome Bob- I am also living in Colorful Colorado. West Denver Metro near the foothills. I've been around here about 2 and 1/2 years and have learned bunches. Welcome and just have fun, the competition is stiff, but it's all about learning and having fun.

Now I feel left out -- so many people from Colorado! And it's such a cool place!

Maybe I'll move... :)

And then there's Leadville, a place with "Nine months of Winter, and two months of mighty late in the Fall."

Interestingly, it's also the place Oscar Wilde observed and quoted a sign later used by Elton John as an album title ...

Leadville is also in peril because the abandoned mine shafts located above the town have filled with water, creating the potential for catastrophic flooding and landslides.

Leadville is an absolutely beautiful little place. It hS suffered it's own little depression since the closing of the mines though, sadly.

When I was in H.S we played football at Leadville and even being from Colorado ourselves we felt the sting in our lungs from the altitude. Leadville's football field is the highest Football field(american football that is, not sure about soccer) in the world. Also, my H.S football team was pretty tough, we didn't always win, but we almost never got out-hit. I would say we were out-hit exactly twice in my four years, the two times we played Leadville. We beat them both but they bruised us for our efforts. Tough little dudes from the mountains who hit like Rams.

I personally can't get enough of Telluride / Alta / Mountain Village

Well the club is called "We Hate smardaz". We didn't think it'd be appropriate. The turnout was fantastic though.


i bet my teenage kids were there, oh hey, welcome by the way Reckless, make sure you watch out for this member. Real jerk if you ask me......

I'm hoping this is a bounce to whoever clicks it or you have some splainin' to do!
