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).
Collections are a JPG+ feature. You must be a JPG+ member to create new collections and to add photos to collections.

The Verrazano-Narrows Bridge between the Boroughs of Brooklyn & Staten Island, NYC.
This was my first bridge shot. The intention was to get the sun going down behind the bridge, but (un)fortunately I parked on the north west side of the bridge on the Brooklyn banks (i.e., the sun was behind me.) Not wanting to miss the sunset, I decided to stay and hoped for the best.
In the end, I was quite pleased with the image as not only it captured the span of the bridge, but also the lights, the reflection in the water and the fire in the sky above Staten Island.
Bay Ridge, Brooklyn.
