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 dead of night,
I perceived a shadowy-silhouette flickering like a dying-bulb--
from ocean's crest.
Desiding whether this was a moment
of a fortuitous nature,
foraging for light,
I stumbled towards the withering form--
perhaps a short-lived refracted-figment,
of our Earthly-laws.
In a glutonous fashion,
seemed to swallow up this obtuce and seemingly maligned figure.
through the rough sand,
my bare feet felt as if they were being triturated,
by my hassened approach--
lambasted even more by the pounding surf.
Analogous to a soft-spoken voice,
the intermittant wind regenerated my efforts,
through urgent tones, towards that which felt more germain--
with each step.
As this simulating,
floating carousel was slipping away,
I thought I'd heard the faint sounds of laughter and the clinking of glasses--
conveyed with ignominious implications.
With the moon,
as the only guiding light,
I glimpest a fading image
of a large ship,
just before it drifted beyond my horizon.
Bypassing this moor, possibly in search
of another destination--
or perhaps none at all.
