Go West Young Man Go West!
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).

"Go West, Young Man, Go West" was an expression first used by John Babsone Lane Soule in the Terre Haute Express in 1851. It appealed to Horace Greeley, who rephrased it slightly in an editorial in the New York Tribune on July 13, 1865
Pictured is the Alabama Hills a "range of hills" and rock formations near the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in the Owens Valley, west of Lone Pine in Inyo County, California.
Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, The Lone Ranger, Hopalong Cassidy and John Wayne just to name a few, lived in these Alabama Hills. At least that is what I thought as a kid, since so many of their movies and television series were shot right there among the rounded rocks at the base of the Sierra Nevada’s sharp east side and at the foot of the tallest peak in the lower 48 states, Mt. Whitney. Yes, in these hills, my western heroes roamed, fought the bad guys and for ever etched a place in American history and found a spot in my heart.
