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).

"You are correct that the image portrays a personal struggle relating to an idea that someone or something of significance was once there but is no longer â€“ symbolized by the empty space next to me. Your interpretation of regret I can absolutely see, along with such feelings of being overwhelmed, heartbreak, homesickness, or etc â€“ based on ones own personal experiences. But for me, while I was editing this image, I related it to the feeling that I am letting something go and the struggles that relate to that, but also oddly the feeling of being content (or even excited) in seeing myself alone in the image. To clarify, by no mean do I feel or am alone, as my family and friends are absolutely amazing . The feeling of contentment/excitement I feel relates to the acknowledgement of areas of personal growth in my life and moving forward in to the new year in that mind set (symbolized by the directional light).
I realize the above description is still very broad â€“ but the truth is it relates to a variety of feelings and experiences even for myself. But overall, and if I was to title this image it would be, The Morning of a New Year. "
