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).

The Thomson Reservoir is located more than 100 kilometres east of Melbourne, near Mount Baw Baw. The Thomson scheme was built in several stages. In the early 1970s many kilometres of tunnel were drilled and blasted through the rock of the Great Dividing Range to allow water from the Thomson River to flow into the Upper Yarra Reservoir. Preliminary work on the Thomson Reservoir dam wall started in 1976 and the massive wall was completed and ready to store water by 1983.
Thomson Reservoir has a capacity of 1,068,000 mega litres (million litres) and is the largest in Melbourne's water storage system. Water from the Thomson Reservoir is transferred through both the Upper Yarra and Silvan reservoirs for distribution to most Melbourne suburbs.
