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).

What lurks behind that big screen TV we may never know, this kid just found out... "Scary Movie".
I used my "Strobist" kit for this photo, one strobe (530 EX) above the subject, on a boom, shoot through white umbrella. the second flash was almost ground level (430EX) with a ring flash mounted for fill light, both triggered by Flashwave.
It took about 20+ takes to complete all the elements that had to "Jive", that's the water flow, the popcorn explosion, and the fear factored face. Yes the sofa is full of butter from the popcorn (I could not find one microwaveable without butter) and sofa wet but there is a bit of "trick" to keeping the seat away from the water, relatively dry.
