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).

I explored New Orleans by myself for a few days in August of 2005. I had read about the historic neighborhood of Algiers Point and decided to take the ferry boat across the Mississippi River to check it out. I'll never forget that boat ride, short as it was, because it's the closest I've been to feeling like Huck Finn. As I stood up to leave, I noticed there was one man who remained seated. I thought of approaching him, but instead I just took a picture of my fellow lone traveler.
He who broke up the repetitive shapes of the chairs and windows.
I went back to Chicago the following day, and two days after that, Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans. I often think about that man and wonder if he's okay.
