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).

Great Grandmother Brewer (a.k.a. GGB) - my great grandmother meant a lot to me - though I didn't have the privilege of seeking her advice in my teen years, she was good to sit next to and feel admired by. Sitting next to her was just supremely comfortable. You could just sit and be. She would look at you and seriously admire you, chuckle a bit and give you a hug.
Though not a good photo (taken around 1910, the left half is sort of "bleached" out while the right half is OK), this is a picture of her at the age of 17, with my very dashing great grandfather. This was their honeymoon - fresh off the train in AFRICA. They lived there a few years where she had several of her 5 children, a few "helpers" and a shotgun. My great grandfather would go on expeditions, sometimes for several days and she would hold down the fort.
These goblets were brought home from Africa from their life there and I treasure them.
(Note: I have a previous photo posted here of a child's dress, worn by her children.)
