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.

Although surviving Hurricane Ike was something I'll never forget, this storm provided some of the most intense weather I'd ever seen.
It was a radical storm cell that moved in and dumped a tremendous amount of rain and lighting on the city of Houston, for about and hour.
It was such a quick storm that the sun had time as it was setting to bounce some absolutely perfect lighting on the underneath of this storm. You can actually see on the left of the photo how the clouds suddenly turn dark. This is caused by the curvature of the earth as it acts like a visor shielding the light. In the bottom part of the photo you can kind of catch a glimpse of the eerie yellow tint that was present for the last 30 min of daylight.
This photo (as about 99%) of my photos that I submit to JPG was NOT altered. I take pride in obtaining optimum exposure quality.
