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).

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet. and a light unto my path...Psalms 119: 105
My sister, gave me an Ideals book entitled: "Memories of Times Past" and she also gave me the calendar on the wall as Christmas gifts. I did this self portrait this afternoon as a tribute to her for all the good memories that we have shared in the past and in the present.
I wanted to recreate an old time portrait with existing light and I stopped down
to F/16 which required a very slow shutter speed of 1/1 second. I am using my late mother's touch lamp on the stand as my source of light .
Thank you so much Patty Gross for your generous spotlight on this portrait.
