Lightning of a Lifetime
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).

Lost sight in my shooting eye and had surgery to recover sight. So was shooting with a handicap! I have always wanted to take a awesome shot of lightning and really hadn't taken any shots since I lost my sight. My Dear Hubby took me out to try and lift my spirits. Camera was handheld, 85mm lens, focused on infinity, sitting on car window, had finder on shutter button, I was not looking in the direction that the lightning lit the sky when I saw a flash out of my eye that was only at that point seeing 20/20. I hit the shutter and this is what I got. Only lightning strike that I attempted to capture and last one of the day. So I felt it was the Lord letting me know that everything was gonna be ok. And now today I am back to 20/20 vision.
