Reflections Throughout the Ages
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).

Villa Adriana, imperial residence of the Roman Emperor Hadrian (proclaimed emperor in 117 A.D. at 40), sits on the plain at the foot of the hilltop village of Tivoli (east of Rome). Hadrian was a fit, elegant, and cultured man. During his rule, he was a great organizer of the Roman Empire and known to be austere and genial, dignified and playful, dilatory and quick to act, niggardly and generous, deceitful and straightforward, cruel and merciful. Adriana Villa reflects this well traveled and complex Emperor, the estate consisting of monumental villas, temples, baths, ponds, and theaters spread out over 300 acres dotted with ancient olive and cypress trees. One could easily spend an entire day there. Fred and I had the great pleasure of going there three times. Loved how differing light altered the mood of this magnificent place.
This part of the villa is known as Canopus; once consisted of vast gardens and more housing for servants, as well as the large oval pool, statuary of Greek originals, and colonnade portico.
A special thank you to Davide for the spotlight.
