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 have been thinking how I can achieve this SP. I tried several things that did not work out. I ended up doing it in a tight space and a lot of manipulating of me and the camera. It is done in the natural light in the room which I was happy to discover that it makes it look like I am getting some of the sunset light on me from the painting. This is one of my favorite paintings that I did and I have repeated it on a vase once which came out really well. Oh, I am holding my daily allotment of good for your heart dark chocolate - with almonds - even healthier - LOL : )
After this photo was posted for a day in the 1/365 theme, I put it in the theme of Paradise. A paradise to me is to be able to finish a painting and to love it and then to join it with my other hobbies that I love, photography and the computer.
