Dustin Penman's image of a wild stormy night was taken near Folsom, California and it was submitted to the Shooting In The Dark Assignment which closes tonight. Penman calls this image Wild, Wild Night. It's a composite of six photos taken during a summer electrical storm in the area. Such storms are rare in this part of California. He used a Nikon D7000 with a 10-24mm lens.
I select a Photo Of The Day every day. I choose the images from the various OP galleries including Assignments, Your Favorite Places and all of the OP Contests. Also, for each issue of the magazine I go through the Assignments galleries and choose a few to be featured in The Best Of Assignments in print and I select a weekly winner to be featured on the OP home page. To get your photos into the running all you have to do is submit them.
