Alone in Tokyo
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 a trip to Guam in Aug-Sept. 2008. On my way back to the States, I had a connecting flight in Tokyo... a 22 hour layover. I didn't mind one bit. I purposely booked my trip that way so I could spend as much time in Japan as my schedule allowed me too. This is Terminal 1 at around midnight. Nobody was there except a hand full of laid over passengers, employees getting off of work, and security guards.
The guards consolidated all the passengers to this one area to sleep for our protection. They didn't want us wondering around one of the biggest airports in the world alone. At around 1 in the morning, they cut the power to everything: lights, vending machines, escalators, ect. One security guard sat there to keep guard while we slept. I have never felt so safe in an airport before and I was alone
