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).

Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting, get understanding....Proverbs 4:7
Things look monochrome
Except the gold bus turning
On a corner of the road,
Driving students home,
With books to unload
After a day of learning!
Their principal is demanding,
Wisdom and understanding.
Poetry by me, AJP
I got inspired from John Linton's site and decided to make the school bus the primary color in a scene otherwise converted into black and white. Please read his interesting photo essay on selective color in the link below the text box.
I did it the lazy way since I don't have picnik software, I converted one picture into monochrome, placed it over the colored version and then erased around the bus to bring the gold color out. My method is probably not the best and perhaps should have turned the corner to get wisdom and understanding:)
Just as we drove past the school bus I saw where the driver had dropped off a little girl with her books and her Mom was waiting for her with a beautiful smile on her face in front of their house....I just wished I had reacted quickly enough to capture that sweet moment in time with my camera....Fast fleeting moments are really fun to capture sometimes.
