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).

Taken along a rural highway road on a road trip from Texas up to Chicago last year. Being the naive city guy I am, when I stopped to snap some shots of the old cars he had in front of his shop I was surprised when he wandered out and asked me what I was doing. I of course told him how much I liked his vintage cars and thought they deserved to be seen by more people (knowing not many got out where he was). We ended up talking a bit longer. We looked each other straight in the eyes. A few laughs. A few more pictures. Some thoughts on life.
I took this when we were both finally quiet for a few seconds and he shook my hand, told me to have a safe trip and started to walk away. I liked the obvious stance that the car shared with him. One thing I will remember is his resolve to do what he had been doing for nearly 40 years - fixing cars. He said it was the thing he was best at, but that it was taking its toll. I would be proud to say I was still doing the thing I knew best 30 years from now, but I honestly don't know if I'll be able to.
