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 kingdom is the Lords...All they that be fat upon earth shall eat and worship...a seed shall serve him...
The Eastern Chipmunk
Filling her face
With seeds in cheek
Could not speak
To say grace...
But looked up to see
She had company...
The male cardinal
Who was ne'er late
Gave his benediction
Before he ate...
The gray catbird
With much conviction,
In the upper branch
Had the last word
To be heard!
Poetry by me, AJP
I was about to take a picture of just the chipmunk alone when she was joined by the cardinal and gray catbird..I shot this very quickly using my old 75-300 zoom lens off from my film Nikon FE2 camera which I was experimenting with yesterday..and I had not changed the settings that I used for taking the previous rabbit picture outside in bright sunlight..
This lens will only permit manual focus with my Nikon 40 DX digital camera. It focused through the window mainly on the Catbird on the branch and the foreground got slightly out of focus... I should have had my camera on a tripod but it was either take the picture then or lose it altogether... I also was standing too close to the window for the foreground to get sharp...I am so used to my 200mm lens which permits me to stand a little closer...
