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).

Being that this is probably the MOST IMPORTANT ELECTION YEAR EVER, I expected to see all types of signs, campaigning and propaganda, but I NEVER expected to see anything like this!!!
I know it's not easy to see, but what it says is "Vote Yes on Prop 8".
The fact that it says that is not wrong as there always has to be one side against another, but what is wrong (to me) is the fact that someone/some party would pay this much money to have this sky-written!
There was another that said "Save Traditional Marriage", but with the wind and cloud movement, by the time they finished writing, it was too loose to get a clear shot.
As far as Prop 8 goes, there is always going to be misleading information about whether schools teach this or not, and as far as I know, they don't. They didn't teach this when I was in school, but today it may have changed??? More importantly, this teaches discrimination!
I for one am not gay, but I do know one thing FOR SURE! Tonight when I go to bed, I will be Ahmed, and when I wake tomorrow, whether Prop 8 passes or not, I will still be Ahmed!!
And, what about "Traditional Marriage"!? For me and my latest experiences, Marriage hasn't been "Traditional" since my parents were married! Nowadays, people are getting married for sport, and for the title, and no one is holding on for the long run like the old days!
Today's marriages last only a few months or years if you're lucky, then everyone is out for what money they can get from the one they're divorcing, and to be REALLY HONEST about it all, marriage is nothing more than a contract with the govt!
They just want to continue to know all of your business as usual. I say, if you are in love with someone, what is a govt issued piece of paper going to do for you, besides put you in a different tax bracket? You can love someone for LIFE without it!
I am not saying all of this to start an argument or debate, or upset anyone, but I am saying this to say that I feel that this is total discrimination, and that if this passes, I am still going to be me, and you are still going to be you.
For the record, I voted NO on Prop 8! It is none of my business whether someone wants to marry, "traditionally" or not.
