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 would hasten my escape from the windy storm and tempest. Psalms 55: 6
May the bird with swift wings
Escape the winds that form
To find rest from the storm..
Oh the tempest it wrings....
Oft' with violent emotion...
O'er landscape and ocean...
Poetry by me AJP
I need to be totally honest, I have only been near an ocean once in my life and it was the Pacific Ocean in San Diego, California long ago when I was 16 years old.
Unfortunately, I didn't have my camera along with me...I remember the ocean was freezing to the touch and my late mother and I didn't stay there long.
This is a combined picture of wind swept storm clouds with a little bird in the sky over our driveway and a portion of water from a place called Twin Lakes that I shot on another day...It is my version of an ocean scene and believe me, I had to use my imagination to enter this challenge:)
Thank you so much Deborah Downes for your generous spotlight...
