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).

Originally from France, the family "Obizzi" arrives in Italy with the Emperor Henry II in 1007. After a first residence in Tuscany, the family settled permanently in the territory of the republic of Venice, then very powerful.
Attracted by the beauty of these places, Pio Enea degli Obizzi, decided to build a palatial residence for the glory of the family.
The "Catajo", halfway between military castle and princely villa, was built in just three years (1570-1573) and expanded in later periods. It has 350 rooms including the most representative of the main floor completely frescoed by Gian Battista Zelotti, a pupil of Paolo Veronese, with scenes that recount the exploits of the family.
From the large living room you can access the terrace from which you can enjoy a splendid view of the Euganean Hills and the vast gardens with fish pond, citrus and many redwood and magnolia trees that are first imported into Europe from America.
