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).

On 18 August, 2008 was like any other summer monsoon evening. I started out around 7 P.M. to try and catch a few lightning strikes. I postioned myself around the new Cochise County Courthouse Complex in hope of catching a strike using the building as a measure for depthness.I had some luck this past summer doing this with other objects. The storm's were passing through on the back side of the building and heading southward. I had captured two or three lightning strikes earlier in the evening from this same location. Around 9 P.M. I was about to call it a night when in a matter of a millisecond this strike happened. When the image appeared on my LCD I suprised how much detail there was in this strike. It was the last lightning strike that I saw that evening. I feel lucky, or call it fate that I stayed as long as I did, or I would have never gotten this shot.
