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).

The Lord said, Behold, there is a place by me and thou shalt stand upon a rock: and I will put thee in a clift of the rock while I pass by. Exodus 33: 21-22
Upon a rock inside a clift
The red squirrel stood
To receive his gift...
And found it good...
Poetry by me AJP
Two of the red squirrels are back after a long hard winter and it is good to see them looking healthy. The mate to this one has a dug out underneath the rock but I managed to capture a photo of the little one on top by standing on a step stool with my telephoto shooting downward through the old rolled glass window before a fox squirrel chased him away.
It was a tricky shot because the branches sometimes would cover its face depending on where he was standing...It was also very sunny outside so that I needed to manually stop down to F/32 .... of course focusing through old rolled glass is extremely challenging too because of the wavy texture in the glass..
