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).

One of my adult students asked my why his pictures of Stonehenge didn't look that interesting. I asked him what time of day he took them. He said it was about 11:00 in the morning. I said, â€œWell, thatâ€™s your problem. Itâ€™s hard to get interesting photographs of a site like Stonehenge in the middle of the day. The light is much more interesting in early morning or late day when the sun casts long shadows and the color of the light is warmer.â€ â€œBut the tour bus didnâ€™t get there until 11:00 oâ€™clock,â€ he objected. â€œYouâ€™re not going to get the most interesting photographs if you have to take them on the tour busâ€™ schedule,â€ I told him.
