What's the first image you can remember seeing on this site?
This is mine.

I read the comments from the picture taker (rooster), and I was amazed that the picture wasn't "natural" and she had actually "set up" the shot.
I was amazed because I thought it was a shot from a 1950's newsreel and then I was amazed that somebody would want to "set up" a shot to enter into a competition.
Of course I now know better and realize that it's all part of the game.
It's a great shot.
I was wondering if anyone else can remember their first time?

I was searching the web for images taken with the Canon PowerShot G2 when I came across this image by Gordon. I have been addicted ever since.

This was the winner of the Love challenge, for Valentine's 2002. That was the first place image the first time I loaded DPC.

Ok, something a little more easy maybe.

What was the first image you marked as a favourite?

This was mine:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/115/thumb/28005.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/115/thumb/28005.jpg', '/') + 1) . '' . substr('//springfield-shopper.de/Main/Smilies/p7.gif', strrpos('//springfield-shopper.de/Main/Smilies/p7.gif', '/') + 1) . '

I have no clue but I do remember the first two I commented and voted on. And they are a part of the reason I became a member of this site. Still to day they are among my favorite photographs and I still have them as my favorites and would love to have a print of them. One is available at DCPrints [Kintla Lake] and unfortunately [Dreams vs. Career] is not available for print that I can tell.

Since I'm pretty new to the site, I know exactly the first image(s) I saw and was amazed that people could take such beautiful photographs. Anyways, here's my first two photos DPC images I saw:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/254/thumb/106707.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/254/thumb/106707.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' and ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/254/thumb/103788.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/254/thumb/103788.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

First two favourites - ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/117/thumb/29019.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/117/thumb/29019.jpg', '/') + 1) . ' and ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/226/thumb/83066.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/226/thumb/83066.jpg', '/') + 1) . '.

I was initially somewhat discouraged by this site - I think I happened upon it on a week with a couple of ridiculously high quality challenges, and while I knew I was just starting out in this whole photography thing, I thought I was reasonable at it. One glance at this site showed me I had a long way to go. I still have a long way to go... but I've improved a hell of a lot, and dpc definately hasn't hurt in that respect.

I have no idea what the first image I saw on DPC was, but my first favorite was:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/210/thumb/71240.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/210/thumb/71240.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

One of the best shots on this site - in my opinion
(not that my opinion counts) :)

This was on the front page as the winner when I first joined the site, and I still think it's great. It's not all that different from the photo currently on the front page now :)

WEIRD!
Mine is the same one as Konador!
Not long after that I signed up as a member and the first challenge I commented/ voted on was the Corporate World. It took me a lot longer to enter anything!

By a process of deduction i think this must be the first image I saw - it would have been the blue ribbon the week I first found this place.

Definitely this one:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/121/thumb/31012.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/121/thumb/31012.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
The Pollenator
I found this image while looking up info and samples about the Dimage 7i. Thought it was great macro quality and bought one. Now I carry a digicam everywhere.

I remember it clearly:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/22/thumb/2892.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/22/thumb/2892.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

It made me want to become a member here so I could get good enough to take shots like that.

This must have been on the frontpage when I first visited the site.
12/19/2004 08:41:48 AM · #22
Can`t remember the first image I saw but this was the first in my favourites

My good friend Karen sent me here to see this photo of her daughter, Kayla.

This was on the frontpage when I first checked out DPC and one of the reasons why I joined.
My fav non-challenge photo is:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/27920/thumb/116336.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/27920/thumb/116336.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

I think this is the first one I clicked on.
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/212/thumb/73328.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_challenge/212/thumb/73328.jpg', '/') + 1) . '
