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).

We are individuals. It does not matter if one is a soldier who has tens of thousands of brothers-in-arms around him or her; ultimately, each of us walks alone into a fog of uncertainty.
This is a shot that I took in Baghdad, Iraq. This soldier was on the way to the mail trailer on the base we both lived on, in the hope that he had received some letter from home. This time he was lucky on two counts: he did have mail waiting for him, and the guy who shot him from behind was a friend who was only using a camera.
I edited the image to enhance the dramatic qualities of the shot, but the hue of the fog/dust is real.
