"RED SKY AT NIGHT, SAILOR'S DELIGHT" [FOR HILDA COX]
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).

[Harpswell Peninsula, Casco Bay, Maine; August, 2012]
I have been going to Maine almost every year since 1970, but I don't recall seeing a sky as dramatic as the sky I saw last week from Harpswell Peninsula. What you see here is what I saw. No edit was necessary.
The land mass that occupies the lower part of the frame is Whale Island. Casco Bay is the patch of pale blue that fills the small notch to the right of the island.
I am a point-and-shoot amateur, so I rarely try anything "artistic." But, I saw this sunset and it made me think of Hilda Cox and her sunsets. Thank you, Hilda, for the inspiration. Please click on the link below for one of Hilda's spectacular photos.
As always, thanks for stopping by my page.
And thank you, Brenda Burke, for the spotlight!
