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).

A young mother and her baby girl, begging on the streets of New Delhi.
I was struck by the wise look on the girl's face. Her young life already full of trouble. Only a few moments later I noticed that her mother misses her left hand. Henri Cartier-Bresson always connected with his subjects, by communicating with them. Either with his words or with his eyes. I also learned from HBC's good friend and collegue Robert Capa that you should be close to ypur subject. He said: if your pictures aren't good enough, you're not close enough. These words from Capa are good to remember!
New Delhi, March 2010, Sacha de Boer
