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).

Another archive piece. Always loved the lines on this but the with the 3 shot 1EV spread on my old FZ50 missed some of the shadow details and I was frustrated trying to process it back then as I wanted to pull more of the boats features into the shot. Tried again, this is as good as it will get! Shooting into the sun with HDR can be a challenge but generally works well with landscapes, a tripod and as many shots as you can get to pull the details together. There is no way a tripod could have been used on this shot however (and many of the others I attempt) laying on the dock hanging the camera inches over the water and using the articulating LCD to frame it up -;0)
My dream camera would be one that auto brackets up to 9 shots and has the articulating LCD, I might have to give up coffee and take up yoga to keep a steady hand in these situations however!
