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).

...See now I dwell in an house of cedar but the ark of God dwelleth within curtains..2 Samuel 7: 2
Behind the curtain
A bird with courage
Will most certain
Perform on stage.
Through the window...
Was Mr. Blue Jay
Who brought his show
Within the frame
Without the fame,
Ere' he flew away.
Poetry by me AJP
Normally I like to shoot close ups of birds but I caught this blue jay yesterday just as he was about to depart and I was so far back, that the old window pane framed the bird.
