Longtime mediocre member. I just renewed my membership for my 20th year. I have learned a lot from this site. I have made some friends.

I don't always agree with the scores but...photography is so subjective. I don't style my entries for what I think will score well. I style them for what I like.

I can't imagine not having a place like DP to touch down, catch-up, enter some challenges, gather some education and just be part of a greater, diverse community.

Thanks for being here and having me for all these years.

Cool! Glad you've hung around so long. :-)

Many awesome shots to look at, but this was one of my favs. Fun photo, fun story!

I agree it's been a great place to learn and play. I was on a couple of other contest sites prior to DPC, but they weren't exactly what I was looking for. Then I found mention of this site in a discussion on one of the others. Was exactly what I wanted and I've been playing here since late '07.

Despite everyone complaining of the smaller numbers lately, I think DPC staying relatively small is what is best and unique about it. It is run by and for the members, not a commercial entity for someone to earn a profit from. Well worth the $25 per year.

I've become fascinated with lighthouses in the last couple of years. Spotted this one in your portfolio. Seems most of the "spark plug" style lighthouses are in the northeast. I may have to make a trip sometime.

Is this also the site of an old fort? Looks like there may have been some canons in that wall at some time.

Yes! It was an old fort. Now the site of a community college that has been built and integrated into. Unfortunately, it was severely damaged in one of our storm and is currently being repaired and restored.

Congrats on 20 years.
I particularly love this shot - so full of life and energy.
