Loch Ard Gorge
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).

Travelling along what is recognized as one of the worldâ€™s most scenic drives the â€œGreat Ocean Roadâ€ follows the stunning limestone coastline of Victoriaâ€™s south- west.
The road winds along cliff tops, up to breathtaking headlands, down onto the edge of beaches, across river estuaries and through lush rainforests offering panoramic views of Bass Strait and the Southern Ocean at every turn.
This is one of many gigantic limestone cliffs, known as the â€œLoch Ard Gorgeâ€. Named after the clipper â€œLoch Ardâ€, an iron-hulled clipper ship weighing 1700tonne, it ran aground here in 1878 when sailing from England to Melbourne with 54 people aboard. Only two people survived, a cabin boy, named Tom Pearce and a young woman who Pearce saved, Eva Carmichael.
Strategic lookouts provide amazing views but descending down to the beach where these unique giants await in all there glory is something to behold.
Tourists from around the world are in awe at the size of these uniquely formed cliffs.
