St George Illuminated
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).

Here is a photograph of a very old medallion with the likeness of St George etched onto a very thin piece of what appears to be perhaps pearl. It looks as if the piece has been set in a more modern thin gold frame.
This is a memento of a friend who's mother had this and obtained it sometime in the late 30's to late 50's while in Cuba before the revolution.
I held the small piece up to some light with my left hand and took the photo with the right hand.
The age of this treasure is thought to be over 150 years old, but there is no way to determine who made it, how old it really is or where it came from.
