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).

Doth the plowman open and break the clods of his ground? Isaiah 28: 24
Denver, one of my husband's older brother's passed away yesterday at age 79 and I shot this photo of him in 1989...Denver was a bachelor and a bit of a loner... He didn't get on very many family photographs, but I remember he liked this picture in particular, that I gave him a copy of years ago...Farming was a part of him and what he best loved to do. I think I caught the essence of who he was in this candid that I shot with a cheaply priced point and shoot film Yashica camera that I had bought that year... The sea gulls were flying in abundance that day in the plowed field and I felt compelled to shoot this peaceful scene.
The print is getting old and faded and had to work with it in photoshop to deepen the tones. I had the 11x14 print behind glass in a frame and I used my digital camera to shoot a picture of the picture so it is not of the sharpest quality.
