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).

There is a little story that goes with this photo. It was shot on the Great American Photography Workshops Eastern Sierra Tour. After going out that morning for our shoot we were in the room looking at everyones work. The pro photographer, Neil Silverman, put this photo up,and looking at me, stated that I should be very proud of this photo as it could hang in any gallery anywhere. He went on to say it was as good as any that Ansel Adams had done there. I am still shocked by that statement and have not been able to accept it to this date. That evening we went to a very nice resturant out of Lee Vining, CA and in the lobby were some of Adams black and whites. He called me over and made comparisons to the masters work. The only difference was that mine were in color verses black and white. While I am flattered to even be mentioned in the same breath as Ansel Adams I do not believe I can ever compare to his work. I just share those comments as they tie in with the photo and I can not seperate the two. I am sure someone out there is going to set me streight.
