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's interesting when I work on something like this. I might have an idea, drag the photos into PS and really work at making it happen. I am very stubborn and relentless when I set my mind. But even I know when it's time to call an idea stupid and end the torment.
There are other times, with a single stroke of the brush, I know where it is going... I see it in my mind's eye and all that remains is changing it from a thought to something tangible. This one started with a few strokes at the neck and all of a sudden it was Mary Magdalene or Joan of Arc in sainted death.
A lightbox must.
