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).

The Lensbaby lenses attaches to Nikon or Canon cameras and allow you to create really neat surreal effects in-camera. Yes you can do this in PhotoShop later, but I prefer to do as much as I can in-camera. The version shown here is the third in their original line-up. It has a locking mechanism so once you find your "sweet-spot" as the company calls it, you can lock your focus in place; great for portraits. I prefer version 1 and 2 which you can't lock into place, giving you a different effect every time. The version 3 is the most photogenic though in my opinion!
I have all three of the original line of Lensbabies... version 1, 2 and 3. I've photographed babies, brides, my wife and kids with them. I've even photographed the Governor of our state with one (his aids were looking at me like "what the heck is on that guy's camera?!" They are a blast to play around with. The company just introduced three new lenses, which are now on my wish list!
