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).

I have another photo from this shoot of Barker, nude, frontally, which just got bumped for showing "female genitalia." While I feel that pic is beautiful, tasteful and classic, with its barely visible crotch, I DO understand the issues and reasons for such censoring. So, any of you who liked that pic, and want it, just write me here with your email address, and I shall email it!
This is my friend Barker, with her dog, Jack. I know, the names are confusing! We took this pic in a gorgeous setting, which is the oldest bar in Houston, Texas. (Spent a lot of time there kicking back the Guinness!) The lighting was gorgeous, and I used strictly ambient (existing) lighting, which I prefer for the natural look to it. I used a Mamiya C-330 with its 2-1/4" format, and Tri-X, 220 film. The pic is gelatin silver, and printed on agfa fiber-based paper, which has such a lush look. I scanned this pic on a Canon Pixma MP 160, and here it is, with zero female genitalia showing, and hopefully, is as tasteful as its predecessor was!
