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).

For now we see through a glass darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known. I Corinthians 13: 12
I shot this candid through the windshield of our car quickly on the passenger's side...My eye caught the bright red shirt on the young fellow that says "I'm a Pepper." He doesn't have a pop can of Dr. Pepper in his hand but it looks like 7-up. I caught this moment before the signals turned for the couple to cross the street.
I did not realize until later that my camera took in the focal range even further down the street on the store sign that says "Tattoo Shop Coming soon" with the interested young boy peeping through the window glass maybe dreaming ahead to be the first customer:)
Street shots sometimes bring surprises after we look at the whole picture and not just part of the scene.
