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 is one of the most photographed spots in Teton National Park. It is one of the most beautiful spots when the leaves are turning and you can find mirror conditions on the water.
Some of you, that I have commented on, have made statements like I am light years behind you in my photography. Untrue. The biggest share of you have some really great shots. Whats the difference? A little learning from the National Association of Photoshop Professionals and having Photoshop on your computers. When ever you download your images onto your computer, or when you scan a photograph onto your computer, you always get what is called a color cast.Once you get rid of that your photo's start to come alive. I noticed on the upload photo page there is an ad for NAPP. Go there and check it out. Then scroll down to the books section and I would suggest "The Digital Photography Book" by Scott Kelby the founder of NAPP. He has a number of best selling how to books that will teach you nearly everything you want to know about taking great photo's. Here is the address for NAPP.
Hope this helps.
