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).

This is where the work gets done at home. I work better when my space is messy, cluttered with treasures, the dog lying under the desk (snoring) and this shot looks like I'm living up to that goal!
Life is in a state of transition just now but I have a high tolerance for ambiguity. At the end of 2006 I sold my consulting firm to my business partner, keeping the leadership/career coaching and psychometric assessment areas of practice.
I wanted more balance in my life, more time to chase after and cultivate creative passions - photography, art, writing, poetry. I thought that would be easy. Nice to know I can still be naive at this age and stage in my life.
But all that said, I do like my space here, at home with the studio in the basement, but I thrive in the natural space - a little cottage sitting on piers on an island in near northern Ontario, just 6 steps to the water and incredible views. How peculiar that different spaces inspire very different work.
In this home office I write what I consider to be serious stuff, working on a novel and a memoir (interviewing, researching, reading until my eyes hurt) essays from time to time, and my blog.
At the cottage poetry and photography reign supreme. I love being out doors and the more natural the setting the more my heart swells.
In a couple of weeks I'll be heading south to Fort Myers, Florida for Christmas. This is a space in my life that I struggle to come to terms with ... not sure why ... and my creative pursuits there are erractic. I just need to let myself wander around lost there until it settles. Perhaps it as simple as my body rythms being so tied to the changing seasons that it will take more time for my body and mind to accept winter in a warm climate.
