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).

The old Savoy Hotel sat vacant for decades and was in the process of being renovated when the economy went into its most recent tailspin.
Michigan Paranormal Encounters has this to say about the property:
"This historic property in Westerly was built in 1888 and has not operated as a hotel since the 1950's, since then it has been home only to occasional vagrants. In spite of its air of neglect and disuse, it still retains the echo of its former beauty and charm. It also appears to retain the spirits of former guests and inhabitants.
Kathy did a preliminary investigation two weeks prior to the investigation date and found that the old hotel definitely warranted a second, more extensive look. Permission was sought and granted by the building's owner for Encounters to do an investigation on May 21, 2004.
Investigators, Kathy, Barbara, Michelle, Kathie, and Cookie along with David, met at the hotel on May 21st. Groups formed and walked through the building, measuring energy levels and temperature to determine the best areas on which to concentrate.
Definite "hot spots" were found throughout the hotel. Temperature fluctuations were between 10 and 25 degrees. Equipment was set up in these areas. Sensitives picked up on the presence of entities in three main areas of the hotel. Evidence collected by investigators seems to support this theory. On the second floor, Barbara sensed the strong impression of an agitated woman pacing in front of one particular room. The presence of a former occupant was felt strongly by Kathy and Michelle. Kathy felt the presence of the same entity on her previous visit. He made his presence felt immediately upon her arrival on the 21st. Investigators spent 5 hours in the building. Evidence collected is currently being evaluated and will be posted here when the process is completed. There is no question in the minds of investigators that the building is teeming with paranormal activity. Given the size of the building, a second visit is probably warranted and once a date is decided upon, it will be posted here."
