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).

Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us..Psalms 2:3
When break dancing,
The fast Blue Jay
Found life enhancing....
Today as it cast away
Kernels of corn...
To satisfy its hunger
He felt so reborn
Tearing them asunder,
That he spread his wings
With banded rings..
Poetry by me, AJP
The blue jay really did a swift dance step here before I went out to refill the feeder today ..I almost didn't catch this shot before he made its get away....The birds and squirrels come in big numbers in the winter which makes it necessary to refill both feeders twice daily...While we don't see people dancing in the streets in the winter time in our part of the country unless they slip on the ice, natures wildlife needs to move fast just to survive and stay warm as well...
