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).

My gosh where did the years go and how did they ever pass so quickly ??
This photo was taken in the winter of 1980 and I remember every detail about it.
I was 23 years old and my daughter Marie had been born in August.
She was just a little shy of 6 months old.
I was working the afternoon/evening shift as a mechanic/pump jockey at the Sohio station just up the road from where we lived.
Back then self serve gas stations were something new so most stations still pumped your gas for you.
At the time there was only 1 self serve station in town and being the dead of winter most folks were reluctant to pump their own gas so I was always busy at night.
Between fixing flat tires,doing oil changes,antifreeze flush and fills and running in and out to pump gas my nights went by pretty fast.
And that was perfect for me because all I gave a damn about was getting home to spend time with my little girl.
I always told Diane to make sure the baby had an early evening nap so she would be up when I came home from work.
These were the absolute best years of my life and being a father was by far the best experience I've ever had.
I've never been able to understand how a man could just bail out on his kids and walk out of their life.
Without a doubt I'd relive those years in a hot second if it were possible !!
