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).

Notice the BIG boat in the lower right.
I have driven by Jacksonville dozens of times on I-95, but never stopped in to take a stroll of downtown and the river-walk area.
I was kind of on a mission on this one. We had just driven back from NC and I was kicking myself for once again not stopping, so on the following Friday I drove back to J-ville to see what I could see. Well needless to say I was really pleased with the photo ops I found. But what stood out the most was that from where I was taking this picture there were many, many homeless folks around. As a matter of fact this very spot was shown to me by one of the local residence, a young man named Jerry. I do not usually take photos of folks in public unless I have asked permission or have taken up a conversation with them. Jerry was very camera shy and did not wish to be photographed but was happy to show me around the Jacksonville Riverwalk. After some small talk and some more walking I offered him what I could, but as I turned to the tripod he just kind of walked off. Jerry didn't want my money, He just wanted to show me the Riverwalk. All I know is that his name is Jerry and that he is a Veteran and this is what he sees every day.
thank you Jerry
