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).

Jesus said, I am the resurrection and the life; he that believeth in me. though he were dead, yet he shall live, St. John 11: 25
When a Monarch butterfly
Saw a Zinnia today
That was ready to die..
He pollinated it anyway..
Tho' the flower almost gone
Would soon be dead...
His vision went far beyond
Seeing the color red...
Poetry, by me, AJP
Please check out this link where I learned "Butterflies have good color vision sensing more “wavelengths” than either humans or bees and, unlike bees; butterflies can see the color red."
There were a couple of Monarch's flying on the Zinnia's this afternoon. Even though this flower is beyond its prime, I chose it as my favorite to show for today. I liked it because regardless that the flower is dying the butterfly took the time to care for it....
