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).

Aside from being a photographer I consider myself a big nerd. I love reading about science, about new discoveries, new theories about the world, watching documentaries... I love learning.
Recently I've been quite interested in The Universe. What do we know about it? When did it start? All those questions we usually think about as a kid but that we usually forget about when we become adults and have other things to occupy our minds.
Last saturday I had the opportunity to go out of the city in the middle of the night and I found myself in the middle of nowhere (Nowhere, TX, population 4) with a beautiful clear sky above me. I couldn't help myself and I spent a significant amount of time with my camera.
Above all, this photo stole the night.
How crazy is that the Moon, that "little" round thing is 238, 857mi (384,403km) away from us, and we can still appreciate it and all it's glory using no more than a camera and a good lens?
Or is it crazier that we DON'T marvel at it on a regular basis?
