Ned Kelly 'outlaw' & Betty
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).

Ned is depicted wearing the suit of armor in which he was captured after sustaining many gun shot wounds. He is holding his favorite armament a .577 Snider-Enfield rifle which he named 'Betty'. He was accused of rustling horses amongst other 'crimes' including the shooting of 4 police officers. The Kelly gang were declared 'outlaws' and there was a staggering Â£8000.00 reward on his head. His showdown occurred at the siege of Glenrowan. To many he is a folk hero due to the perceived social injustices that occurred at the time. The rifle and suit were handcrafted by me. The figure is from Action Man, the horse from the 1983 Barbie series. This scene was shot on the bank of my local river park.
