" Growing Up Little By Little" " Best Of "
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).

A mother Morning Dove watches over her young one while perched
on a metal clothesline. The sun was just right. It was very strong backlight but I love the detail in the feathers and shooting wide open gave me the background I wanted, out of focus bringing
your attention to the baby Morning Dove. I off set the mother basically just using her as a prop. Her beak
facing downward makes for a nice vertical. I just shot this yesterday while the sun was going down. I used a 300 mm 2.8 for this one. I also liked the halo effect around the baby dove.
