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).

The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness and let us put on the the armour of light... Romans 13: 12
How much we depend on the light
As quoted clearly in the scriptures....
To guide us thru' our day and night,
And to give more detail in our pictures....
Poetry by me, AJP
I have been doing some experiments on my attempts to get more detail on my late mother's lamp that I inherited from her.
Not an easy project to do, for the light bulb when the lamp is turned on has a
tendency to burn out the details... This isn't perfect, but I did 20 shots with bracketing my exposures and got rid of the other 19 that were duds, saving number 20 as my favorite, but this is how we learn..
I also tried shooting a picture of the lamp turned off in the day time using auto and flash that shows the hanging pendants more clearly but I wanted to do it the hard way by seeing what I could do with the warm lighting of the lamp turned on at night using manual focus for this experiment.
My mother's lamp brings me comfort and I feel her presence when I turn it on...She loved the light and she lived by the light.
