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 spent the better part of this morning watching pelicans circling, hovering, diving, climbing all over the sky while they searched for fish to eat. When they spot a group, a dance begins that ends in a crash dive into the blue Caribbean water where they make their catch.
The velocity they build up and the splash they make when they hit kept me saying, "man that's gotta hurt," but they showed no effects and they'd do it over and over and over again.
In this shot a Pelican hovers over a patch of calm water off Ambergris Caye in Belize Central America. As it flew, the pelican kept one eye on the fish and another on me, and that made its break dance all the more interesting and exciting to watch.
Shot with Nikon D-3 and the Nikkor ED AF 80-200 f-2.8 zoom lens with Schneider polarizing filter
