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).

3 days I had sat with Dr. Nair.
Some people leave a greater impression on me. Even within the lovely people of rural India, there are some that put even more then a smile of great ease in my sole. A feeling of expansion. I tend to relate to them as enlightened. Less attached to the roller coaster named life.
Dr. Nair lives in a tiny village. He is practically blind. Yet, like all Ayurvedic (In Hindi: à¤†à¤¯à¥à¤°à¥à¤µà¥‡à¤¦) doctors he does the full service: diagnostics, prescription and preparation of herbal medicine. The way he is dressed with the Doti and topless is traditional to Kerala (In Malayalam lanuguage = à´•àµ‡à´°à´³à´‚) state.
So far he accepts patients in the balcony, the one leading to this medicine room, three steps up from the street level. He took me to the back and showed me the room he started building for bed treatments but it takes a long time due to the little profit he makes. I found out when I paid for my medicine that he really stands behind his value of curing people for a minimum pay without extorting them.
