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).

I captured this in Corpus Christi, Texas as Hurricane Alex moved in just below us in 2010. Early on, the light was incredible. The ocean was lit up and turned a beautiful clear green. The skies held the light in and it reflected in tiny sparkles all over the water. Later, the skies grew darker and the ocean moved in threatening to swallow us up. I held my breath as the waters moved up hoping until the last minute that the storm would not change direction. Then I felt bad for wishing the storm on others. We got a lot of rain and flooding on our island but the view before and after was worth every bit of wind and rain.
This image breaks a major composition rule. "Rule of Thirds" but I don't want to loose one tiny bit of light on it.
Thanks so very much for spotlighting my image Jean Pierre
