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).

Vescovado Street is one of the oldest streets of the city of Padua, and also one of the most elegant. It is part of an ancient Roman imperial era decumani tracks. The road ends in Piazza Duomo, and connects with the ancient Cardo Maximus. The building is one of the most beautiful photos of the street, from the Renaissance period but altered in the eighteenth century, certainly built on earlier medieval structures. It's not in bad shape as it sounds, but the facade and the ancient stones need a deep cleaning and restoration. The road is paved with porphyry cubes, like so many others in the city center. The portico, however, is paved with large stones on the surface smoothed rectangular trachyte. The trachyte is a stone from the nearby hills Hills and was extracted already in pre-Roman times. A curiosity, at a time in the center of the portico in front of the entrance door is visible through a rectangular hole all the time. This hole had a function that is practiced today by video-intercoms of all modern houses, allowing residents to easily control who would be received.
