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 am always fascinated by stars and I got a chance to photograph the stars out on Payne Lake in Alberta, close to the US border. While shooting this image and while I was at the lake I had a very strong feeling that my friend who was battling cancer, was there with me the whole time. Upon returning home I found out he had passed away while I was on my trip. The stars and my friend will be in my mind and my heart forever. This photograph is dedicated to him. In order to create this one complete image I did a 70min long exposure to capture the star trails. The light in the foreground is from a very tiny porch light from a farm about 1km away. The long exposure made it seem very bright when it was actually hardly noticeable with the naked eye.
Field Notes: Nikon D800 / f4 / (1hr10min) / ISO80 / Nikon 16-35 @ 16mm.
