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).

This image is a mix of two different exposures. In order to capture the full range of colors I used separate shots and then blended them in Photoshop using different layer composting and opacity settings. Dodging and burning has been used as well as the shadow/highlight filter.The final image has also been desaturated by 30%.
This stretch of highway 20 in Montreal is called "The Turcott Yards" (a now defunct rail yard) the backdrop for this area used to be filled with the normally colorful train cars. Since the yards closure, the highway is now overwhelmed with billboard advertising... It is very unsightly and distracting to drivers.
The titled was inspired by my dislike for advertising in general and is intended to remind the viewer to make unbiased choices for themselves, uninfluenced by media. Comments are welcome.
