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).

This is a self portrait. I took this while laying on top of a hotel by the pool, in Pattaya - Thailand. My boyfriend and I were finishing a 3 month stint through Asia and were using the last stop in Thailand to relax (and recover from a rather nasty case of a tummy bug brought with us from Chiang Mai).
This was a warm day with a cold breeze, made worse by being so high up. As a result we had to shelter under towels to protect us from the breeze. My boyfriend had a snooze in the sun, and being bored - I had time to kill. Under my towel I took a self portrait - and you guessed it, the towel was a bright yellow. I haven't adjusted the colour at all. The towel cast a yellow tinge over my face, and its one of the few self portraits I really like!
