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 photograph of Sidd the Travelin Buddha was not unique in any way, unusable as the image was too dark and his features nondescript. So, thanks to iphoto and a good deal of tweaking I came up with somewhat of a unique image resembling the shape of an eye as if one is looking outward from he inside.
Hatred is never appeased by hatred in this world, it is appeased by love. This is an eternal law.
Words from the Dhammaada (Words of Wisdom) # 5
What this means for us today is quite clear, you can not ever appease or cure hatred by hatred, you can however appease or cure it by love, or at least make an effort, and that is all one can do. Show the hater love, show the discompassionate one compassion, show the intolerant one tolerance.
Buddha, Jesus, Ghandi, Mother Teresa, they all say the same thing. they were all Buddhas, as are each one of us, wether we understand or acknowledge it or not, we all, each and every one of us has this nature, different cultures and beliefs say the same thing in different ways. Let us all strive for tolerance and understanding, extend a hand towards those who are suffering from the negative forces that abound at every turn.
A SPECIAL THANKS TO SUSAN LITTLEFIELD FOR THE WONDERFUL SPOTLIGHT!
