my old family house in Ireland
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 shot was taken in Ireland where my mother was born and raised. It was a one room thatch roof stone home that my mother and her parents and four other siblings all were raised until her mother passed away at the age of forty of cancer. My mother left for America soon after and worked hard to send for the rest of her family to join her in America. It was too heartbreaking to stay for her. We visit many times throughout the years and every year it gradually disintegrates leaving not much left of the house they once called home. Now it is almost all deteriorated as the stone walls have fallen down but we can still stand in the small circle of stones where it remains in Ireland to this day still filling my mother's family with memories of childhood, happiness, and heartbreak.
