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).

Walking the streets of Singapore's Little India on the morning after the Deepavali Festival.
The night before was more insane that I expected...and I expected insane. I was tossed around the over crowded small streets like a tall, skinny, pale beachball in a sea of very intense body oder and mustaches. I just wanted to take pictures, and I was nearly drown in a crowd of thousands that descended on the small area of central Singapore for India's beautiful 'Festival of Lights'.
It was amazing... however, you add Singapore's 100% humidity into the mix, and you have a recipe for a desire to forget about your camera for a change, and just be back in your air conditioned hotel room, waiting for room service with a frozen 40oz Carlesberg beer bottle in your fist.
..and still.. my affair with Portra 160NC pushed to 400, and developed at 360... continued long into the night, and after that cold beer and a night of sleep...back on to the streets to absorb and capture the morning after. Now, hauntingly quiet, like the tide rolled out, and left people sleeping all over the place.
