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).

When I was but a lad I was climbing a large maple tree in the back yard and had almost made it to the top when I fell. I can still remember hitting limb after limb on the way to the ground. Those limbs saved my life.
Since then I have not had a love affair with heights. In fact I became afraid of them. Then I decided one day many years ago to try and get over it. I now find that if I just give myself enough time I can climb lighthouses and stand out on those railings to admire the view (from against the wall), admire the steep drop offs as the taxi driver descends Gibraltar’s Rock, and take shots like this one (quickly).
