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).

One of the largest of it's kind in the world.The massive "Dune 45" is one of the star dunes of Sossusvlei,Namibia. It's name comes from the fact that it is 45km from Sesriem Canyon and not because it is between dunes 44 and 46. Standing at over 180 metres high, it is composed of 5 million year old sand that was carried the long distance from the Kalahari by the Orange River to it's present location in the Namib desert.
There are a lot of similar dunes in the same area. Dune 45 stands out and has become a major tourist attraction. It is easy to climb and very photogenic,especially in the early morning before dawn where groups of tourists arrive and climb the dune so that they can see the sunrise over the beautiful red coloured desert and dunes.
