Pigeon Point's 24 Points of Light
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).

Two years ago in early November I bought my current and first DSLR camera. I had not done any night shooting prior to my coming to the annual lighting of the Pigeon Point Lighthouse’s Fresnel Lens. I was a nervous wreck trying to get set up, and a fellow photographer even attempted to sabotage me by telling me to do things that made my shots worse.
I came away that evening with a decent shot, but because I used a high ISO a very grainy shot. Well, it’s been two years and they re-lit the lens tonight and I was able to try getting that shot one more time.
I met some wonderful people and got to hang with my friend Paul and even saw another flickr contact I haven’t seen in a while. The lens will not be lit again for another two to four years, so I guess this one will have to be it for a while.
