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).

This young civil war reenactor is taking a break and trying to capture some shade. The prisoners were held in an open field to suffer all the Georgia elements. Anyone that has ever been to Middle Georgia can tell you that we have the craziest weather. Our winters can be very wet and cold and our summers have temps in the 100s. The humitiy is horrible. There is rarely a spring or fall. The prisoners faced the worst conditions and I have often wondered how the health of the ones that did make it out alive fared. I would imagine it had serious effects.
In a perfect world, I would have moved in on this shot and used a little flash for fill to rid the hotspots but there was a do not cross line and it was over the 10 foot mark for flash. Oh well. Catch them as you can.
