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).

HershioTantenmuskaly settled near these falls in 1700, and lived his life out as "The Mad Hermit" of the Shawangunk Mountains.
His exploits included jumping from a ridge onto the tops of pine trees on a bet, punching General Berterund's horse in the mouth while visiting Fishkill, also on a bet, and challenging any passers- by to naked wrestling matches, presumably for wagers.
He took the bet of sitting under these falls in the winter of 1738 and died here.
Legend has it that during the coldest days, one can hear the chattering of teeth near water's edge.
The British, who occassionally employed Hershio as a guide and hucksacker to the local Indians, honored him by adopting a cliche phrase describing cynical doubt of an incredible tale that is still in use today: "Yeah, sure, I bet"
