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).

From the Artists Series. This portrait is in my book, Insights: The Portraiture of Charles R. Rushton, http://www.crushton.com.
At first glance, Spragues paintings appear realistic, almost photographic. However they have a surreal feeling about them that derives from a variety of factors. His use of light suggests a sort of dream-like quiet. While most objects in the paintings appear motionless to the point of existing almost outside of time, Sprague will include a curtain that seem to be blown by a breeze, or a fold in a table cloth or a diagonal sweep of clouds in a sky that suggest movement. Many painting employ anomalies in perspectives that suggest the viewer is viewing different areas of the picture space simultaneously from different vantage points. Sprague’s painting technique also contributes to the surreal effect. He applies several thinly painted layers over the course of many sittings, and so creates a smooth appearance that hides brush strokes and enhances the linear qualities of the composition. On the whole, Sprague’s compositions are simple and elegant in their underlying and often openly expressed geometric structure.
