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).

It was still night outside when my iPhone woke me up that morning. I slowly walked to the window of our hotel room to check the weather and, after hesitating a few seconds between going back to the comfortable bed in which my wife was quietly sleeping and going out for shooting, I quickly put on some warm clothes, grabbed my bag and walked down to the streets of Venice, heading to the Palazzo Ducale and the Piazzetta.
That was not a surprise: many other photography enthusiasts were already out shooting. But in this Carnevale time, they were all focusing on getting the best possible shot of disguised creatures (OMG! already dressed at 6:30 AM…) while I headed to the Laguna, set my tripod and began shooting the sunrise over San Giorgio Maggiore, the Canal Grande, the Palazzo Ducale and the Piazzetta.
That was it. After almost one hour enjoying sunrise in one of the most beautiful places in the world, I headed back to the hotel and slipped in the bed to hug my beloved wife who was still quietly sleeping. That was the beginning of a beautiful day.
