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).

Â© mylatehope.comAnother photo taken from the same grounds as my noir entry, Tortured Souls Remain. The Ladd Center, originally named The Exeter School for the Feeble Minded, â€œcared forâ€ over 5,000 mentally handicapped Rhode Islanders in its 83 year history. For the last 40 years of its existence, there were widespread rumors of physical and mental abuse of its residents. Because of this dark past, the decaying grounds are said to be haunted.
After walking around and photographing the abandoned structures, I turned around and looked back down Main Street. For some reason I loved the visual of the long road leading down to the power plant with it's vertical smoke stack. I know this isn't quite as over the top as many of my other photos are, but I still love something about this image.
Created using my 1950's AGFA Clack with almost 20 year (Dec 1989!) expired AGFA Chrome 100 RS Professional slide film cross processed with C-41. Scanned as a color negative with my Epson v700 Perfection scanner. No digital manipulation used, but I did select the "color restoration" functionality of the scanner to calm down the outrageous x-pro colors.
