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 candid portrait of my grand father. He is very old - in his 80s. He says his time has come. He has grown frail and has lost interest in cowboy movies and reading short stories. Now he finds pleasure in little things. He sits and looks at the sky, he likes to eat sweets, he can not stay without watching cricket on TV, and he likes to cut his nails when they become big. I caught his mood during one of his engagements and had a photograph that would stay with me till I grow old. He was sitting by the window and cutting his nails. When I observed the Chiaroscuro, I took out my camera and pretended taking pictures of things spread around the room. Then when I saw he was very much into cutting his nails, I took this candid. Later when I showed him, he was very pleased to see himself doing something as simple as cutting the nails of his feet. As a one time photographer, my grand father found this picture to be very much like him.
