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).

At the time, this was by far the most ambitious photo shoot Iâ€™d done.
As all my shoots have concepts, or themes, and all my photo shoots end up having very unique names derived from the personality of the shoot, I thought Iâ€™d take the idea a little further than Iâ€™d ever done before.
The concept for this shoot was this: Over three days shoot three very different models in three different locations. Each model was put in a place defined by my impression of their personality. Each model was given a prop for them to use or to be shot against, and yes the prop is also chosen based on the modelâ€™s personality.
So over three days, Fri, Sat, Sun, each model is shot during sunset.
While on set I was struck with very specific names for each shoot. Deep, Down, and High. (The series later became known as DDH).
The â€œDownâ€ shoot is the second shoot. And just like the first shoot, it was raining heavy all day.
And again like the first day we decided to push on. And amazingly, just like the first day, the moment we showed on at the location the rain stopped and the sun broke through the clouds. Then, when we finished and started packing up, the sun when back behind the clouds and the rain started as if on cue.
