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).

Bobby Rahal stopped his busy pre-race activities for a quick portrait. It is tough not to be starstruck, as I watched him race the Indy 500 all through the eighty's, and win the Indy 500 in '86.
This image was taken at the Vegas Grand Prix in 2007 on Practice Day. He was walking the course that snaked through downtown Las Vegas. I said simply, "hey Bobby, got a moment for a quick photo?" He simply said "sure", and nothing else. He turned, crossed his arms, and posed. I got this shot. In that one instant, my respect for him swelled and I realized that for one of the most famous Indy drivers, he was a really nice guy.
Thanks Bobby....forever grateful.
