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).

After shooting events long enough, it finally dawned (photographic pun intended) on me that I should post some of the wedding shots that are my bread and butter. In this profession, we are creators for hire. It behooves us to attempt to create something new for each client. Whether they realize how difficult that may be is irrelevant. It would be less noble if we allowed ourselves to copy ourselves than to create something that makes us go "ooooh, me likee!" at least once a session.
This couple asked me to recreate a shot I have in my shop, a shot that my print shop guy told me pushed me over the edge from "very good" to "profesionally recommendable". In the end, after I had shot what they wanted and while walking back to our cars, I saw the color (bonus for living in the desert) and the "backdrop". "Hey guys...uh, could I borrow you guys for just a sec?? There's an itch I gotta scratch."
They chose this shot.
Only contrast and cropping in editing.
