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).

In the African American community, barbershops and beauty salons have traditionally been the place to solicit opinions on everything from religion to pop culture to politics (and all things in between). And this barbershop in "New Jerusalem" was no different. The discussions were loud and the laughter was louder.
The discussion that dominated this landscape? The election of Barack Hussein Obama II, the junior U.S. senator from Illinois, as President of the United States. The joy of this latest happening resonated far beyond this barbershop and is colorblind. There are those of us who truly believe that he will hold firm to his mantra to be an agent of change. We are desperate to distance ourselves from the disaster (yes, I said it -- and... what?! Y'all know I ain't lying) that was the Bush administration. (He will be forever known as the "worst president in U.S. history" y'all! One word: DAMN!)
No longer should we "take a little off the top" in regards to our determination to be a force to reckon with on the world stage. As he exclaimed in his victory speech: "Our union can be perfected. And what we have already achieved gives us hope for what we can and must achieve tomorrow." So, we stand with great anticipation that in the next four years we will be completely reshaped as a nation. I'm excited...aren't you? :)
