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).

Not to be defeated by lack of space in front of the curtain behind our kitchen sink that I shot in a prior photo, I changed my angle and I also did not use flash this time... I like the natural lighting here better and also the angle...I deleted the SP I did have up earlier as it did not show the exact true
color of my top. The flash I used on that portrait gave it a bluish cast. Because the lighting was rather dim that time of the night in the kitchen I used a very slow shutter speed with manual focus and I went with the following:
shutter 1/2 sec
Focal length 82mm
