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).

Midway through a day long road trip to visit some cemeterys in Iowa we stopped by the Garner Township in Iowa not far from the Missouri river.
There were an exceptional number of doll like figures such as this one bravely standing in the face of or with their backs to the impending storm.
As the raindrops began to fall I finished up some quick shots and hastened back to the dry confines of the automobile to head out to the next stop along the way.
I imagine this fragile looking plastic doll with tattered garments had been exposed to the elements for some time.
Despite a broken right wing, the angel clutches the bouquet of flowers and gazes off into the horizon waiting for the return of the departed one, waiting patiently through any weather hopeful for the moment of reunification.
