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).

This bright image appeared to me visiting the church of the Capuchins in Padua in the square in Santa Croce, where rests the remains of St. Leopold Mandic, the second most popular saint of Padua, after San Antonio. The church and the whole is of modest proportions, but you can enjoy an atmosphere of peace and serenity unmatched and the presence of the saint is felt at every moment.
Father Leopoldo was the father confessor for life and had the highest accolades for his tireless work. He was canonized by Pope John Paul 2 nd in 1983, who visited these places from a simple devout pilgrim. The photo depicts the passage of the confessional, where the Capuchins continue with the work of the holy fervor, bringing comfort to the many people who visit the shrine from all over Europe.
