My LifeSaver Abbe
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).

Meet Abbe, my standard poodle and Service Dog. I took this photo after reading about the photo challenge: Inspired by Henri Cartier-Bresson. When I saw his name I instantly knew I had to submit a picture and I knew it would be of Abbe even if I normally do not do "portraits". When I was in college I took photograghy, black and white particularly and Henri was one of the artist I studied. Most of my work was fine tuned and learned after his. If it had not been for his feel, and eye I would not have stuck with the art. I shot b&w for years and still do. At the time I was studying to be a CPA and found my new love in photography so I think because of Henri he saved my life. Him and Abbe have a lot in common. She is my Service Dog, Trained to sense my Gran Mal seizures and another 65 other things. Because of her, my life has been extended a couple of times. She is now 7 years old and I am now working again, shooting pictures, loving life with her by my side some of the time. She is an old soul as much as Henri. They both show it in their work and when you see them it resonates off them.
