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).

It was a biking day for me. Went 100 km north from Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh. My primary target was getting something interesting on the road. And needless to say, I love biking :)
So back to the point, this photo was taken from over a bridge in a place named Kaliakoir where a rail line crossed just below it. I love shooting abstract patterns and this was my chance to shoot some. See the rail slippers aligned to each other, which created a beautiful harmony in a symmetrical fashion. The crossing rail line added extra attention to the photo. Two adjacent frames created by this dividing rail line along with three equally distributed rail slippers and their equal clearance from the sides make this photo an interesting composition. By the way, this shot is not cropped and not straightened at all :) I try to take photo in such a way so that I donâ€™t have to straighten or crop during post processing as long as I can, if I have proper time during composing the shot.
The split toning was done using silver efex pro 4, one unbeatable application for black and white lovers. I used a Canon EOS 550D with EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 IS lens.
Shot Settings: 1/60, Æ’/9, ISO 100, 131 mm
