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).

I went to the Salmon Run the other day. Firstly, I was disappointed that I saw NOT ONE SINGLE salmon do anything but swim or just lay there being eaten by birds. There was no running involved. I thought I was going to see salmon doin the darwin.
Seems every year for as long as there've been salmon, they've been swimming upstream, spawning and dying. To the population of Victoria BC and some off season tourists it's quite a site to witness. We went a little late in the season and caught the tail end of it where the river is teeming with dead salmon carcasses and scavanger birds. lots of interesting photo ops. when we got to the lodge I found the most interesting of finds. It seems a macabre tradition to allow (and even encourage) children to cover dead salmons in paint and make prints.
A true homage to the beauty of nature, don't you think? These solemn creatures fight all odds to procreate and end up covered in paint. I heard one kid remark "This is SUCH a good idea!"
I've decided that this is how I want to be remembered. Burial is so passe, cremation is kinda cool but who's ashes are they REALLY? George Carlin once said he wanted to be stuffed full of dynamite and blown up. I was favouring that idea until now. When I die, I want to be laid naked on a table, covered in paint and made a print of. I can be wiped down and redone until everybody has their own, artistic interpretive print of me to do whatever they want with it.
A fitting tribute to the cycle of life and not in the least degrading.
