"that's me in the spotlight"
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).

At age 51 he decided to turn the camera on himself. Heâ€™d been in his little studio taking hundreds of self portraits, trying to get the shot right/right shot. And, to my knowledge, he doesnâ€™t know the guy in the photos. He shot a self portrait a year ago and, after looking at the photo, asked himself, â€œWho is that guy?â€ His camera keeps every capture and when he opens the file, to review the photo, he is there. He looks old and grey. His eyes are a bit droopy. He looks a bit worn to me, like heâ€™s done stuff and been places I donâ€™t know or canâ€™t imagine. Iâ€™m not afraid of him but, his skin has changed, his jet black hair is turning white. His bright eyes are a bit dimmer and covered by glasses, He moves in a different way. I think I like him, hell, I probably love him. I embrace him because I know he will kiss life on the mouth, hug life, and invite life in for a good meal, banter and a great time!
