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).

This street character is someone I ran across before, a day I didn’t have my camera and missed him in action and always swore to capture him one day. The man is a one man comedy show with a surreal sense of humour. He doesn’t do it for money or anything; he is just constantly amused by the world as he sees it. His constant prop is the handset part of an old phone which he constantly makes calls on!
This day he is tagging along with the Legalise Cannabis protestors who marched through Dublin in a fragrant cloud of protest, he doesn’t need what they propose, that’s for sure he is naturally out there.
The day I didn’t have a camera, he was using the same junk plastic handset as if it had a built in camera like a modern cell phone to photograph a Rolls Royce parked on the street and snapping shots of his friend another street dweller posing as if he owned it. Sighs .. Never forget a camera.
