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 pretty much all I see in the morning when I wake....but it gets me going.
** This was shot with my D80 on a tripod sink left, extended to 7ft balanced against the sink (very shaky), with my SB600 flash hanging directly above (facing straight down) hooked onto the mirror using the SB600 mini stand that comes with it.
I had the remote in my mouth to trigger the shutter, and a chair behind me to stand on and "check" the shot afterward to avoid moving the camera.
It was a bit of a nightmare getting the camera lens/position JUST RIGHT, but well worth it.
Then, I added my "Secret Editing Sauce" when I was satisfied with the initial capture.
