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).

Give ear to my words, O Lord, consider my meditation. My voice shalt thou hear.....In the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up. Psalm 5: 1-3
So good felt the blue jay
To have a warm Sunday;
Tho' he said not a word
He directed up his prayer.
The Lord heard the bird
Who meditated there...
As he stood in the heat
And waited to eat...
Poetry by me, AJP
The blue jay indeed warmed himself in the sun. (It was still a bit nippy earlier in the morning.)
Since then he has returned several times to eat. I was able to use a slow shutter speed with my camera on a tripod because he did not move from his position for quite awhile.
