Trapped near Peñita
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 Burica peninsula, on the Costa Rican side. We were looking for La Peñita, a small cove with some fossils. I was with my student and the guide. We set off too late and misjudged the massive tide. As the tide rose, we all got trapped on these two headlands of volcanic scree. The guide on the one ahead, the student and me on the other. We had to wait a torturous 9 hours until the tide fell to able to return in the middle of the night. It was very scary. It was the students first time out of the city and he had a little cry from the fear until the hunger, thirst and boredom set in. We got back to camp at 3 in the morning.
