Is Art imitating photography too?
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).

I just had to post the image with my question because it is truly amazing to find high-technlogical advancements make it possible for photography to imitate art; and then I came across the recent ManilArt - Asia's Latest Contemporary Art Fair; and found this one by an amazing artist: EJ Cabangon's "Bull Ride" acrylic on canvas. I did not waste time to take a photograph of this awe-inspiring piece. I checked the result of the shot and compared it to the actual artwork and found I could not tell the difference, and now I wonder too if anyone for that matter could.
I had to touch the canvas more than once to be sure it was acrylic...I am certain photomasters here can replicate the art here in photography with equal aplomb...
