Confined to the office, daydreaming of night.
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 image is my reminder of why I wish to be a photographer. The idea of being confined to a small space surrounded by four walls all day would be a torturous way to spend this life on earth. I live to explore, and to see the beauty in the world, and that becomes impossible when the only view of the world you get is from an open window overlooking the street. So this is my photograph to inspire me to keep going and to never stop this pursuit of becoming a photographer professionally, even on those days when I feel like I'm behind in the game and have nothing left. I now can look at this and remind myself that at the end of the day I can either be a photographer doing what I love with curiosity guiding me, or an office dweller letting the only sense of curiosity be what lies on the other side of these four walls and one open window.
