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 is a W-37 class sailboat. They are all 37' long, and all the rigging, etc., is exactly the same on each boat. These boats race competitively, and since they are built identically no boat has an advantage over the others. The "Race Horse" hails from Newport, RI. Here she is seen passing a 109 year old steam engine yacht in Castine, Maine, harbor....just before the beginning of the sailboat races. My husband, David, lettered this lovely boat. He has been lettering boats for over 30 years along the coast of Maine. Many sailors have gone to the cheaper computer generated decals to slap on their boats, but Dave is still in great demand in Spring when the boats come out of storage. (They need to be repainted/re-lettered.) Many boat owners still prefer hand lettered work for their boats.....much higher quality, and David is the best!!!!!!
