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).

He that received went and digged in the earth..St. Matthew 25: 18
A blue jay on earth
Found why it was worth
Digging neath' the snow...
To himself, he thought
The seeds buried below
For which he sought
If not hidden by snow...
Would bring him value
In the kingdom he knew..
Poetry by me, AJP
This was the scene we woke up to early this morning.... it had snowed overnight. We have more snow predicted before the day is over and another storm coming on Monday.
These are two pictures that I shot in sequence of this same blue jay who on the left side was contemplating the idea of digging under the snow for his breakfast.of sunflower seeds. You can see the wheels turning in his head before he took action and on the right side he got to it..Of course the feeder was cleared off soon after I shot this picture and dry seeds were delivered to him (minus the snowy white tablecloth:)
