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).

I took this from the second floor of Shuri Castle in Okinawa looking out onto the courtyard. In my rush to get the shot I wanted of the kid, I accidentally left a bit of the window lattice in frame, but lo and behold, it worked quite nicely. For comparison to without the lattice:
Other than a little tweak to the contrast, this is straight out of the camera.
All my photos are all rights reserved aside from the reprinting rights explicitly extended to jpgmag as part of the terms of submitting them here. Please do not reproduce or use them anywhere without my express permission, which is not to say that I would say no, I just want to know where they're being used. I think that's just common courtesy, right?
