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).

I had just finished taking some indoor pictures in Low light when I went out into the bright sun and saw these two cats, ahem, in the heat of the moment, heeding their, ahem, "call of nature".
Excitedly, I took out my camera, changed to my 75-300 zoom and shot away, ahem, like what the black cat was doing. I managed just two shots before someone walked near and the cats, ahem, disengaged and scooted away.
I looked at my shots. They were way over-exposed and blur with camera shake. The pixs were taken in very bight daylight at ISO 1000, f5.6. 1/40 second. Fortunately, they were shot in RAW and I could recover the image somewhat.
Looking at the image again, I think the camera shake adds to a sense of action, excitement and mystery :)
