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).

Experimented with taking photos of the silver earrings that the special somone gave me for Christmas. It was a happy surprise because I thought he wasn't going to give me anything, and he enlisted his sister to find out what I wanted and buy it without me knowing.
I went shopping with her because she was going to buy some things for him and their dad. She asked me to help her pick out some silver jewelry because her mom was thinking of selling some. So I helped her to choose. But when I wanted to buy some for myself, she blocked me saying I had too much jewelry already. Which was literally blocking because she prevented me from getting near the counter and told the salesgirl not to wait on me! When we got back she even told him about it right in front of me and they both laughed when I got peeved. Then on New Year's Eve he gave me an envelope and I was touched that he'd remembered to at least give me a card... and then I opened it and found the earrings I'd wanted to buy. Turned out the mom story wasn't true... he'd asked her all along to get me to pick out my own gift without knowing it. Laugh/cry moment!
I still haven't gotten the hang of taking macros with my little GE C1433 digicam yet, and this is one of the clearer photos, otherwise the sparkles all just show up as shiny dots. I've got it on manual, and it tries to focus, but takes the photo too late. Lighting is just an ordinary flourescent light bulb augmented by a flashlight positioned at the upper left. The background is the card he gave me.
