The Experiment... Please read for details (Now in Stories)
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).

This shot is the result of about 10-12 games of experimentation in 1982. Shooting in the corner through a pain of glass for years, there were many incidents when there was great action right in front of me against the glass. Unfortunately, I was unable to photograph it because the light falls off in the corners and is impossible to shoot without external light. So, what I did was set up my little Vivitar flash unit on a tripod angled to the right of a pane of glass and connected it to a camera with a 24 mm lens which I kept around my neck. I shot the majority of the games with my 300 mm lens but when I saw anything coming toward that pane of glass, I quickly switched to the 24, hoping for THE shot. Most of them were not good enough, but finally this came along. A forearm shot to the head and an expression to die for. It ran on the AP network and was used extensively worldwide.
