Looking through the window at Sarek
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).

This photo was taken through the window of a local fisherman's boat across the lake to Mt. Aktse. The man laughed at me during the whole crossing of the lake - the weather was horrendous and he knew it wouldn't let up. I was at the beginning of a ten day trek across the Sarek National Park, my first sort of major trek into true wilderness alone. I failed in the end to make it - another story, however it still took me ten days, in which five of those days I didn't see any sign of human life (not even in the sky!). Spending that much time with yourself when your not used to it makes you go a little bit bizarre... this photo simply reminds me of the whole thing.
