Tsunami Relief for Japan
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 visit to the Capital City of Okinawa, Japan left me with the impression that no earthquake, typhoon or other disaster will overpower the spirits of the Japanese people.
This photo was taken at 1:25PM, under cloudy skies 27 MAR 2011. It had just stopped raining and a group of Eisa Dancers were anxiously waiting to perform in a square off Naha City's International Avenue (Kokusai-dori) for an FM Radio station raising funds as disaster relief in the Tsunami stricken areas of mainland Japan.
Pictured here is a young lady bowing at the end of her performance.
Photo taken with a Pentax K10D f/11 1/160 ISO 200 using a Manfrotto 725B Tripod, Cable Release and a Pentax 18-250 at focal length of 85mm.
