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).

On a Sunday morning in New Orleans, a man pays his respects at a famous local cemetery. I assume he's done this for years.
I refrained from showing this photo for a couple of years out of respect for the man, and the deceased. Then one evening I was strolling down the sidewalk to a gallery opening in New Orleans, when I saw the man!
He was wearing the same hat and coat, and I recognized his face! He had his wife with him, and I told him of the photo, and why I liked it, as well as why I'd never shared it. He and his wife were very nice, and encouraged me to share whatever photo I like.
I also found out that the grave he was visiting was that of a very respected member of his clergy, who made a difference in his and many others' lives. Notice the rocks placed at the altar and mantle...a symbolic act that indicates someone has come to visit and the deceased hasn't been forgotten.
