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).

Motel 66 on Route 66 in Needles, California - The middle of everywhere.
Needles became my home away from home for several hot days. The storm provided some welcome relief from the harsh sun. However, it passed quickly and all too soon the sun returned to its dominate position.
My room, although not much, was clean and provided cool air from an ancient rattly air conditioner. Its noise did not bother me, it told me the old unit was still doing its job. That noise kept me from panicking.
Needles is a very interesting town. In many ways it is a throw back to days long gone. Throughout the town are many interesting buildings and signs, after all it is Route 66. It was those fascinating surroundings and my camera that caused me to enjoy my stay.
Still, I was most pleased when I was able to return to my home.
