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).

Did you know?
Hummingbirds wings beat about 40-50 times per second in normal flight
30% of a hummingbird's weight consists of flight muscles
Hummingbirds fly about 25mph in normal flight and up to 40mph in a courtship dive
The heart beats about 250 times per minute while at rest, about 1,220 per minute while flying, but slows to 50 beats per minute at night (this is called torpor).
It takes about 250 breaths per minute while at rest
A hummingbird has a mass of about 3-4g (a nickel weighs about 5g); may nearly double mass prior to migration by putting on extra fat
A tiny hummingbird can consume up to 50% of its weight in nectar each day.
