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).

Be not forgetful to entertain strangers for thereby some have entertained angels unawares Hebrew 13: 2
it was incredible how the male cardinal was playing with different poses for me today.. He isn't always so relaxed for the camera. I noticed there was a soft breeze ruffling him at the moment that I shot this image through the window. It may sound odd but it was almost like invisible spirits tickled his feathers for this pose before he flew away from the feeder.
Ere' the cardinal flew away....
Gentle breezes did their play,
With the spirits of the air,
That groomed him unaware.
His tail feathers one angel brushed
And another combed his crest...
Earthly duties were not rushed...
For the bird who was their guest.
Poetry by me AJP
