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).

A light shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts..
II Peter 1: 19
The back side of a hollyhock
Turns around to face life
And learns there is no block,
To obscure vision to sight,
When it can see God's light...
Poetry by me, AJP
There were variable types of lighting this morning when I shot this picture...and this is a mix of shade and light.. What caught my eye before shooting, was the golden brightness of the field beyond, where the hollyhock was facing ...
I could not help but notice the green star attached to the back of the flower and the center tones have rays projecting around it like the sun. To go a step further, the leaf above the star on the stem appears to be pushing the flower forward to face the light... Sometimes it is necessary to look toward the beyond to give light to darkness.
