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).

My oldest daughter during a shoot December 2007. Again, photos shot with the Olympus and images I thought were unsalvageable. I was completely digital camera illiterate. I read the manual, several books on digital photography, but nothing really imbedded. Most days I just pointed the camera in the general direction of the object of my affection and clicked.
Needless to say, there was a lot wrong with the early images including white balance. All night shots indoors were completely orange. As you can tell from my photos, I am big on natural and low lighting compositions. So this was certainly a fly in the ointment. But I was bitten and used PS to correct my photographic ignorance.
When Nikon D7000 rolled around, I was bound and determined to shoot manually, so I hit the books again. After a few failed starts, things begin to improve. Then LR graced my life. Again, back to the studio, nose in a book, laptop screen monitoring my progress. Then I drug these out and dusted them off with LR. Imagine my surprise.
