Who is the farest of them all?
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).

Shot with Robin Spohr in August 2007. This is shot with only the light from the chandlier above and behind her head. I was positioned partway down the staircase behind her. She is grazing at herself in a mirror that messures aproximately 5 foot across, nearly 8 foot tall and about 200 years old.
This was a JPG capture on a Canon 5D with a Canon EF 24mm f2.8 lens @ f2.8 Exposure was ISO 1000 @ 1/85 sec. Hand held no flash.
Levels were adjusted in PS and a small amount of "Diffused Glow" filter was added to increase the contrast and take away some of the finer details near the center of the frame. Hopfully focusing the eye more on the overall composition. The fliter also worked to increase the SPECTACULAR light that bounced off the crystals and prizims of the antique light fixture that was mounted almost directly over my head. I was told this magnificent fixture was built in the early years of the 20th century.
