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).

I had just said to my husband that I didn't know how people got those beautiful dragonfly photos since they flit around so much when one landed on a twig not far from me and held still long enough for me to get this photo. I did not have a macro lens on my camera nor did I have the tripod with me. So I had to use the lens that I had and zoom in to 200MM and hold my breath. At home after downloading my shots for the day I was thrilled to see how well this shot came out : ). Also I discovered another dragonfly to the bottom right just almost out of the photo and it was beating its wings where the top one posed very nicely for me.
This looks much better in the lightbox.
