Sidd Enjoys the Flavour of Solitude
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).

Siddhartha Gautamo, Buddha..The Awakened One..Rests in a tree hole in Lincoln Nebraska at the Wyuka Cemetery,
Perfectly equiposed and tranquil, at ease, at rest...
Having tasted the flavour of solitude and tranquility, one becomes woeless and stainless, drinking the essence of the joy of Truth.
Dhammapada (Words of Truth and Wisdom) passage #205
What this tells us is that if one endeavors to obtain and taste the flavour of solitude and tranquility, to seek and find peace within oneself..one will indeed become at ease, the woes will vanish, one will become stainless, no evil shall be able to attach itself to the body..
This is not saying evil and negative forces will not try, and try hard, being clever and often times subtle.
One will be able to more easily recognize these forces and take measures to disarm them, to cast them aside...and banish them...
Treat others as one wishes to be treated...
