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).

These gems aren't man made. They were created when a meteorite slammed into what was later to become Bavaria. It made quite a mess, as you can imagine considering its diameter (4900 feet) plus the speed and the energy it impacted with: 45000 mph and 2.4x10^21 joules respectively, which equates 1.8 million Hiroshima devices. It made a crater, 72000 tons of tiny diamonds (because there was graphite present at the impact site ) and these wonderful beads of glass, which can be found up to 250 miles from ground zero. They're called Moldavite.
Cataclysms like that tend to make for good entertainment if they took place 15 million years ago.
