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).

A couple of hours after catching up with Chris in San Diego, we perambulated Balboa Park absorbing a multitude of incredibly pristine detail every which way we turned. As any place with such grandeur, a long-lasting history endures.
Balboa Park was once known as City Park, a dedicated public park with 1,400 acres of “scrub-filled mesa.” The lackluster landscape started to bloom in 1892 when the Mother of Balboa Park, Kate Sessions, agreed to plant 100 trees every year in exchange for 32 acres to be devoted to a commercial nursery. Yet the vitality of the Spanish-Renaissance architectural style that prevails is attributed to the First World’s Fair: the 1915-16 Panama-California Exposition.
These lily pads line the walkway to the photographically-famous Botanical Building.
