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 guy with the dog was really friendly and all for having his picture taken. Don't mistake his tatoos or the way he and his dog gaze across at the other two as menace. He was having a good time hanging out and watching the world go by.
The guy in the middle just wanted to know if I was going to pay him.
And the guy on the left got really upset that I had misinterpreted his wave as permission to take this photo.
In hindsight, I now remember that his wave was more like a "bzzz.. bzzzz.... buzz off!" (a la Ruby Rhod from the Fifth Element). In hindsight, I'm glad I didn't delete this picture like I promised him I would.
PS: This is the original shot, without the cropping. Over time, I've come to find this one more appealing: http://www.chromogenik.com/post/908478483
