Southern California Sunset
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).

It's no easy task getting a decent sunset photograph. First off, the sun has to be going down! So that can only happen late in the day. And it seems like more often than not I'm in the middle of something that time of day. And around here the sunset is often covered by that pesky marine layer, or we're fogged in, or there's not a cloud in the sky at all. But once in a while . . . once in a while God provides the most awesome skies for those perfect sunsets. This is somewhere up there amongst my favorites. But it is hard to choose, because it seems like when they are good - they are great. I just need to figure out how to capture it to do any kind of justice whatsoever to one of the most beautiful natural settings there are.
