Interacting with nature.
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).

Of old hast thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of thy hands...Psalms 102:25
I very much love nature and just getting out and doing a self portrait certainly requires active involvement ...I set the timer for 10 seconds and I run into place...I am just delighted I can still do this at my age of 67 years old without falling flat on my face...LOL.. It is good exercise.
This is a picture of our flowering crab apple tree on our property, Yesterday we had a rain and wind storm that blew some of the blossoms off the tree. There were tornadoes very close to us.... Before I even knew about this theme, I wanted to do a self portrait with the tree this morning before our next wind storm. It was overcast lighting which I think is the best kind of lighting for self portraits and nature shots.
Thank you Donald Garrett for the spotlight.
