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).

Three Cups of Tea gives one a glimpse into the lives of girls in Pakistan and Afghanistan. It is the Pakistan/Afghanistan custom to drink three cups of tea to do business, the first you are a stranger, the second you become a friend and the third you join the family. This is a fascinating story about Greg Mortenson who tried unsuccessfully to climb the K2. His life turned around unexpectedly having grown fond of the inhabitants and he promised to build a girl's school. The book takes you through his encounters with the tough war lords, the help he received from the locals who saved him pennies and his life, his near encounters and the girls and their stories. Over a decade Greg Mortenson achieved building fifty-five schools especially for girls against all odds. It is an insight into the way of life in these countries, in the rugged and harsh countryside and proves to us that with a humanitarian spirit and tremendous courage life can become better for those left behind. I highly recommend this book; it certainly gives one an insight into life in these countries.
