The White Countess
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).

During the year I lived in Shanghai, The White Countess, starring Natasha Richardson and Ralph Fiennes, was filmed in that exciting and historical city. Part of the film, a late 1930's period piece, took place in this part of the city, known as the Bund. Today, like back in the early 1900's, this district resembles the financial district of London. Wonderful shops, clubs and restaurants can be found all along this avenue. A friend of mine, one I met in Shanghai, got to play one of the extras in The White Countess. About four years after the production of this film, Natasha Richardson died from a head injury associated with a skiing accident. Among her fans, I felt like I lost a good friend, as well as hurt for her family.
