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).

One evening at sunset I was photographing a young woman working a horse in a paddock. She was struggling a bit with the horse as it is normally a horse that pulls a carriage...in a team and the other horse was still in her stall.
Suddenly the horse locked his legs and turned directly at me. Running straight through a pole I was leaning on.
My first instinct, DUCK and keep shooting.
Horse and rider were fine, the pole snapped in half...I stood up covered in mud and yelled... I THINK I GOT THE SHOT!!
The hairs on my arms still stand up when I tell the story. How insulated we become when we view life through our lens'.
So, that is my Favorite Mistake...one of many but you only get so much space to leave a message here. Then there was the time I fell through the ice...climbed out and found the pattern of the broken ice fascinating and ended up taking 50 photos of THAT mistake. :)
