The Young Man and the Sea
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).

Photographed this fisherman surf casting off Beavertail Point in Jamestown, RI on a foggy morning. The Holga really captured the essence of the scene in a way that no digital camera could.
Waders, a surf casting rod, a bucket of bait - tools of the fisherman's trade. Thematically, the fisherman’s smallness is contrasted with the vast ocean. He looks out into the abyss waiting for the perfect moment for his next cast.
Created using my girlfriend's Holga 120S with 4 year expired AGFA RSX-II (iso 200) slide film cross processed with C-41. Photo scanned with an HP Scanjet 4890. No digital manipulation used!
In the story Expired Film - The Tool of My "Trade".
