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).

This multi-exposure abstract photo-art was created as part of my experimentation on taking photography into different realms. This abstract composition is made up of nine different photographs of many facets of the street art sculpture "Il Grande Disco" by Arnaldo Pomodoro.
Arnaldo's sculpture is displayed in, literally, the heart of Charlotte, NC. It is an ode to industrialism. I interpreted his sculpture to reflect the heart of the city and the haphazard urban growth and development it is seeing. The original sculpture's copper-feel gave me the idea to give this image a grungy-patina. This color to me reflects money. The bricks & gear-teeth depict the infrastructure and engineering. The intersecting of these bricks and gear-teeth depict the haphazardness of this growth and development. I further pixaleted the image to depict technology (this slight pixelation is not visible in the small preview here). This way, I tried to convey the forces of money, engineering and technology that fuel this growth.
This abstract photo-art was printed in 18x24 size and is currently on display at "The Light Factory" in Charlotte, NC and will be there till September 12th. This image has also been selected by the gallery among the very few pieces that they'd like to use in their annual auction (of course with my permission). The proceeds from this auction go towards supporting their photography and film educational and outreach programs.
