Can We Go Home Now?
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 authenticity of Henri Cartier-Bressonâ€™s work has inspired my photography. His ability to capture a subject in its natural circumstances helps to portray realism in his work. Candid photography focuses on the scene itself. It answers the questions: how would I view the subject without a camera, what emotion does the scene reveal, what is my gut telling me, is there any reason for me spend more than a couple of minutes observing, and does the subject tell a story. Cartier-Bresson said "I suddenly understood that a photograph could fix eternity in an instant."
I was at the Philadelphia Art Museum trying to get some inspiration from the exhibits. Suddenly, I saw my daughter being the typical teenager at a museum. She was listening to her mp3 player, unaware of my presence. I shot this photograph in an attempt to capture the essence of youth in our modern world, with all of its distractions.
