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 shot was originally meant to show the four cats all sitting alike. Just as I was about to release the shutter, these two kids appeared from the inside and posed for the camera, so I had to reframe and refocus very quickly to avoid losing their expression, so fresh, so natural, so full of genuine joy. All I had on the camera was a 50 mm lens, so they are somewhat hidden at first sight, but I think it makes it even better.
On a more social note, it is very common to find poor, neglected lower class children and young roaming the streets of Buenos Aires. I've noticed that they are always eager to be photographed as soon as they see me holding a camera. I think this shows a strong feeling of being neglected by society, and the fact of being documented lets them reassure their existence to others who do notice them.
