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).

There is really no other appropriate title for this week's Movie Title Wednesdayimage. I knew it the second I stood at this spot, soaking in the wind, the storms and the weeds bursting through this long lost road near I-17.
The Road, while recently a movie, mainly hits home for me in the book form which was written by Cormac McCarthy. It came out a few years ago and even won Cormac a Pulitzer Prize. The story is bleak and harrowing, hopeless and unforgettable. The movie was almost exactly like the book, and in that way, it was hugely successful. The only reason it wasn't a smash hit is probably because it leans big time on the side of depressing.
I am always amazed at how different people interpret things and just a few days ago a photographer I follow named Justin Kern posted some remarkable images that made him think this of this very same film.
Despite the mood of the film, scenes like this are beautiful to me. I shot this last Wednesday during the tornado-fest in Northern Arizona. I raced up I-17 early that morning hoping to capture a twister for the first time ever. I ended up at this spot and eventually turned around and headed back to work. Standing here though was amazing and I only wish I had more time to explore further down the road and capture a few more angles of it.
