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).

I will explain you the reason of "sentimental" behind this photo.
A story to share with you.
I perceived a lady hitchhiking on the side of the road, looking for places to let work my imagination. Her appearance (yes, it could be seen as a "prejudice") was rather disadvantaged, and I wanted to share this moment and to learn about this woman.
So she explained me that she had to go to Coleraine, a little town 20 minutes driving from there. That she waited for 2 hours in the cold, that nobody had taken her. His hands were blue, she was a little bit repetitive, as if at the same time, she was a little drunk, but I do not believe that it was the case. She asked me if she could smoke inside of my car, I accepted by lowering my window. Then she says to me that his hands were freezing. I increased the heating, then the discussion begins. His name is Micheline, she was going to her sister's with whom, of what I was understading, she had a bad relation.
She told me his life. The 35 years she was living in Montreal, the 17 other years living around here, his 3 children, the time while she was working for sewing companies. Thanking me repeatedly, always calling me by my name, " Hey thank you Mathieu eh". She asked me if that disturbed me to leave her at her sister's house, I answered: "Of course not! That pleases me.". Then, she took my hand, still by thanking me, and she kisses it.
When I leaved her at her sister's house, she thanked me hundredth time and take me in her arms, the hands having thawed, the husband of her sister thanking me by a smile and with a profoundly human look, as well as this meeting.
It was on Wednesday.
