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).

A few years back, while living in Ventura, CA, I awoke one November morning to the smell of smoke. When I opened the blinds to investigate, I was startled to find my view completely blocked by a yellowish haze. Immediately, I grabbed my camera and some clothes before heading out the door to locate the source. Two houses away, just around the corner, the hillside of the canyon was on ablaze. The flames had worked their way outward along several forks of a canyon that ran along the Northeastern edge of the city. Fortunately, thanks to the quick response and diligent efforts of the firefighters on the scene, no one was seriously injured and no homes were lost during this particular brushfire.
This was the last shot I took that morning.
