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).

There is a photographer on his site which not many of you know, Gino di Meglio.
His style is delicate, and reminds me of the soft approach of Julia Margaret Cameron (1815-1879) on portraiture. Dreamy eyes telling a story, evoking melancholy in my soul, were impermanence was so obvious written on her sitter faces. Although at the time colour pictures were impossible to achieve, Julia had managed to introduce a touch of sepia. Another plus, ever so difficult to play with at that time, was different levels of focus, which she had mastered it, without to be recognised at the time as a great artist. Similarities in between the two are growing even stronger in my opinion, and worth viewing, although Gino strongly keeps the classic B&W in different shades, from soft to strong greys. Another similarity is solitude, just look at the two artist with critical eyes, and you will observe those effects.
I hope you will enjoy his work, as much as I do!
Love to all of you,
