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).

After the JPG meet up in St. Louis, Jimmy and I travelled to Bennett, IA (pop. 400) to visit his cousin and her husband, and to see his 95-year old uncle. Larry and Charlene took us on a tour of the area, and one notable stop was the Sutliff Bridge, aka the Bridge to Nowhere. The great flood of 2008 amputated the eastern most span. The raging waters of the Cedar River slowly and in a torturous way, removed a piece of history during the morning hours of the 13th of June, 2008. The wreckage was later found over 500 feet downstream and removed from the river. The bridge now looked like that “Bridge to Nowhere” the former Alaska governor and 2008 Vice Presidential candidate had been touting. If Ms. Palin wanted a “Bridge to Nowhere,” this would be the place to go- at least as long as it will remain like that. The majority of voters as well as the county commissioners in April 2010 voted to spend approximately $2 million to rebuild the bridge. The reconstruction plan consists of rebuilding the eastern span exactly the way it looked like before it ended up in the Cedar. The trestle approach and the flooring system on the two standing structures will also be reconstructed. Construction is set to begin in the spring of 2011 and is expected to be completed in 2013.
THANK YOU so much Frank Summers for spotlighting this shot AND for the nomination for Photo of the Week!!
