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).

These are very old circuit breakers in an old pumphouse where the light is very bad this time of day. Many of these old type threw the handle back out violently if you pushed them in on an overloaded circuit and they tripped right back out. It could hurt. They don't make them like this anymore, praise God!
These are from the NEX-5 (which is a NEX-3 with a metal housing and an infrared control port -- better for this type of work), in this case wearing the 16mm F/2.8 prime with the VCL-ECF1 fisheye adapter on it, though I've "defished" the vertical lines with software called "Fisheye Hemi". This is also a crop taken out of the whole frame.
This was an in-camera HDR processed in Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop Elements (to defish it with a plug-in).
