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).

Here's what I like about this flawed photo. It expresses a range of emotions. The girl in the foreground seems deeply introspective, perhaps in a melancholic way. She staring, but not without. She's thinking, oblivious to all around her. The young man on the left is mesmerized by her. He has no chance. Both are oblivious to the May December passion taking place between them. The passionate couple is oblivious to all but each other, lost in a delicious moment, perhaps "happy" is not too strong a word. Longing, introspection, melancholy, sexuality, romance all occurring at the same moment in time, in the same space. A few meters separates the actors. It might as well be light years. I empathize with the young man. I too have longed in vain. I envy the couple kissing, for once I too kissed. I worry about the girl. So fashionably dressed, yet so oblivious to any attention she might draw. She looks without looking. She bites her scarf. She is too inward dwelling to escape my concern.
