Storm Over Puget Sound
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 Storm Pummeled The Puget Sound in the Seattle/Tacoma area for over 10 hours. Several photographers were already set up when I arrived to this spot on Queen Anne overlooking the Marina and Bainbridge Island.
The exposure was about one minute at f/8 on film loaded in a RB67 on a heavy Bogen Studio Tripod. Two discharges of energy occurred while I applied pressure via thumb on the cable release and I literally saw this shot in my mind and laughed out loud. Several of the shooters around sighed as they were fumbling with the equipment and not shooting at the time.
Months later I set up right next to one of the same photographers from before at a local art show and we were able to compare shots. What an experience! Keep shooting!
