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).

“It’s funny how something so unplanned can be captured in a seemingly uncanny way. It prompts you to take a closer look at how this shot came about…A story slowly unfolds as the girl (based on her nail polish) with the mirror starts to shift uncomfortably in place as the placing of the right foot above the left one suggests, and I guess the woman in the reflection makes such story all the more dramatic. It made me ask myself whether such unprompted passing by of the woman from ‘who knows where’ is just sheer luck or purely artistic genius? I believe the latter is more like it. It makes you wonder what happened before the shutter clicked. “Life is all about timing… the unreachable becomes reachable, the unavailable become available, the unattainable… attainable,” Stacey Charter was never wrong when she said this, and I couldn’t be more right in saying this quote fits this shot like a glove.”
