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 is a low precipitation super cellular thunderstorm that I captured on May 1st of 2008. I shot this just north east of Oklahoma City. At this time, the storm was dropping very large hail underneath it. It was wrapped up very tightly, but did not go on to produce a tornado. The storm dissipated shortly after sunset.
Shot with Canon 30D and Canon 20mm lens.
6 frame pano stitched using Panorama Factory.
Each pano frame bracketted -1/0/+1 to gain greater highlight and shadow details.
3 seperate panos combined in Photomatix to create an HDR image, and then a resulting tone mapped jpg image created from that.
