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).

In that I'm a big fan of "Under the Tuscan", the movie as well as the book, it's not surprising that I was eager to explore Cortona, where much of the book and movie take place. Bramasole, the Italian villa featured in both, is in this incredible hill town and is owned by Francis Mayes (author of the book) and her husband, Ed. Because of the major positive impact "Under the Tuscan Sun" had on this town, Frances Mayes, was made an honorary citizen of Cortona, and since then the town puts on a yearly "Under the Tuscan Sun" summer festival. Cortona is by far the steepest hill town we've encountered and holds a history as rich as its architecture. Captured this shot of Fred, my dear sweet husband of 37 years, going down a lane in Cortona that leads to Piazza della Repubblica, the towns main piazza that was featured in “Under the Tuscan Sun”. As usual he’s carrying my camera case. Happy to say he’s very supportive of my growing photography passion and a fan of my work.
