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).

Praise Him with the timbrel and dance: praise him with stringed instruments and organs...Psalm 150: 4
On August 31st My husband and I attended the funeral of Eileen, a good friend of my late mothers and many people in the community who knew and loved this lady.. She is survived in her immediate family (including some of their mates) by 5 sons, 2 daughters, 20 grandchildren, 37 great-grandchildren, 19 great- great grandchildren a son-in-law and a half brother. It was a huge funeral for the little town where I grew up and the church was packed to capacity.
I am not one who likes to take pictures at funerals, nor do I care to poke a camera in the face of grieving mourners...but I shot one picture of this older organ that was relegated to the basement of the church after a newer organ replaced it..It held special meaning to the minister whose late grandmother donated it to the church and it also held meaning for me, as my late mother who passed away October 26, 2011, played this organ for many years for church services, funerals and weddings and also the newer organ that came later...She started out with a pump organ when she was 26 years old after the minister of the church at that time asked her to be the organist and she played dutifully for the church until she went to the rest home when she was 101 years old.
Eileen's favorite song that she asked one of her grandsons to sing at her funeral was the "Old Rugged Cross"...It was one of my mother's favorite songs also as she saw the composer, George Bennard in person when she was a child. He sang The Old Rugged Cross as a guest performer at a church service she had attended...She said she never heard it sung so beautifully and powerfully...Mom played that song for many funerals throughout her life and for Sunday Church services.
Here is a link to the song: http://www.thecross-photo.com/The_Old_Rugged_Cross.htm(A picture I posted earlier of Eileen sitting with my late mother on a bench in the front vestibule of the Methodist church can be found at this link below:
