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).

Last year at about this time I had the great pleasure of meeting JPGer friend Antonio Lovison (goes by Lowison) and his sweet wife, Adriana. They drove down from their home in Padova, Italy to where Fred and I at the time lived near Siena and stayed with us for a couple of days. To say the least, we all clicked. The hours I spent exploring some of Tuscany with my new friends and taking pictures with Antonio, remain among the highlights of my life. Among the precious keepsake gifts Antonio gave me, are these two books showcasing some of his astounding work. Through his photography I not only fell in love with the beauty of geometry, but developed a heightened awareness of how what initially appears mundane can offer an array of interpretive meanings as well as aesthetic pleasures.
Note for my JPG friends: Fred and I are so….excited. This coming Sunday our daughter, son-in-law, and two granddaughters will arrive in Rome for a two week visit. No doubt during that time I’ll get behind on commenting on your wonderful photos.
