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 gentleman is Robert. I had just finished up with a commercial swimwear shoot on Sauvies Island just outside of Portland, Oregon.
When I looked up and seen Robert standing on the top of a small hill overlooking the river bank. I approached him and we spoke sparingly about the weather, the state of the economy, and whatever else crossed our paths.
When we had finished chit chatting, I asked to capture the moment. I took several images and went back over to shake hands and grab an address as to where to send him a copy or two of the images I shot. In our exchange of info, an older lady came up and introduced herself, as Robert's wife Barbara. I was happy to meet her, as well, and I captured the couple together on the beach hillside that day.
Upon getting ready to leave Barbara mentioned to me that meeting me was a pleasant surprise as this day was Robert's 72nd birthday. So I turned to Robert and said...."Surprise. . .You have Birthday Photos!"
I then parted way and went to pack my gear back into my truck and head back home. I later emailed the photos, I captured to Robert and Barbara. To my surprise, I got this email message in return.
Bobby thank you so much for these photos! I particularly like the full-length photo of Robert and I. What an unexpected and welcome memento of Robert's 72nd birthday and our day on Sauvie Island.
After you left, I realized that I had omitted to get a picture of YOU! When you passed us in your car, I frantically tried to wave you down so I could shoot one, but to no avail.
I've been capturing images for years...and I am always amazed at the amazing people I happen to come across in my travels. Whether those travels be near or far. Each moment is sealed in images within my minds-eye, as well as the film, I happen to capture those "Little Life Moments" on.
