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).

For this theme I couldn’t resist entering the shot I captured in Tobermory, Ontario during the spring of 2006. I originally posted this shortly after I joined JPG in 2008, along with this caption: In early May we sat on a boulder at the tip of Ontario’s Bruce Peninsula, looking out over Georgian Bay. We’d driven from Midland, stopping along the way to commune with nature and poignant ancestral places. Shortly after we reached Tobermory, we scrambled down to a rocky shore to watch the sunset. As the glowing sun slowly slipped toward the horizon, the clean crisp air grew colder, and a hush, like that of countryside blanketed with fresh snow, surrounded us. Then it was as if water, land, and sky got caught up in a fiery embrace, and we with them. And somewhere in the afterglow every scene and encounter of the day merged into a harmonious whole.
