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).

Ye shall not need to fight in this battle; set yourselves, stand ye still, and see the salvation of the Lord, with you...fear not, nor be dismayed... for tomorrow the Lord will be with you...2 Chronicles 20:17
The Baltimore Oriole, a migrating bird from South America returned here for the season a couple of days ago...They usually arrive a little earlier than this...It is only in the 40's today with the threat of snow flakes on Monday..
This brave colorful bird looked slightly cold when I shot this picture. We made sure to put out some grape jelly and a half an orange...We also saw its female mate who wasn't quite as cooperative as the male to take her picture...He stood very still for me as I shot this picture through the window....and I was able to hand hold my camera without the tripod. I normally try to use the tripod when taking pictures of birds as they like to move around quickly as a rule.
Focal length 300mm~ macro range
Exposure time 1/100 sec.
Thank you so much Winky Vivas for the courtesy of the spotlight.
