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).

[September 10, 2010, Lake Sunapee, New Hampshire]
I met Warren at JPG more than a year ago. I was first drawn to his open outdoor scenes, and since then have come to admire everything he shoots.
We learned that we have much in common. Weâ€™re both veterans, for example, and Warren was in Viet Nam during the Tet Offensive (1968).
You can imagine my surprise when Warren told me that he had lived in Sunapee, New Hampshire for many years. That is where I spent the summer of â€™63 washing dishes at the Anchorage Grill. What a coincidence!
Since I visit New England one or two times a year, we decided we would try to meet up on my next trip. Warren, who lives in Chester, Vermont, suggested Lake Sunapee.
Warren had a large Nikon and several lenses with him. I enjoyed seeing the artist at work!
Most of the boats had been pulled from the water, but we captured a few. Warrenâ€™s shirt blended right in!
I donâ€™t think I have ever met a nicer guy than Warren Mangione. We had a great time and we are going to do it again.
As always, thanks for stopping by!
