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).

In May 2004, one of my best friends and I decided to act upon something we'd been joking about for years, literaly, and travel across Canada (well, a big lateral chunk of it) by land. On a bus. For 72 hours straight.
For some reason, the only camera I decided to use on that trip was a holga.
These two are really just the beginning of the trip. We'd probably been on the bus for a couple hours, at most. All the belongings I had accumulated over the past ten months were in the luggage compartment in a massive hockey bag that had to weigh 50 kilos or more. Well, what can I say, I'm a major pack-rat and I get easily attached to things. Books, especially. People, also, but that's another story.
Right around that point, Highway 1 starts to slowly turn northbound and climb though the Canadian Rockies, which you can already see far away in the distance. Shortly after that, night fell, we switched buses in Kamloops. I don't remember if or where we had dinner, either. By sunrise the next morning, we still hadn't made it past the mountains.
