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).

I'm a big proponent of the rubric that one does not have to go far to capture decent images. Of course one has to always be looking for something interesting. It helps too if one has their camera on hand. Consider these chic fashion babes. They just missed the last train to London to attend the Electric Light Orchestra soiree. Notice their existential stare as they look on towards the train that had left. It would be a long walk to get to the party considering this was taken in Manhattan.
This is set in the future. And they are wearing invisible hats, which act as moon block. Apparently they found out that moon exposure is more dangerous than sun exposure. In the future, it will take only a twinkling of an eye to get from Manhattan to London by train. But it would still take forever to go on foot.
Techie notes: No kidding this time. Taken with a Canon EOS Rebel XT converted to capture IR only. No color manipulation except for tweaking the white balance, and traditional dodging and burning.
