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.

For me, this photo represents what I truly love about LOMO. No, it doesn't document every detail in sharp focus, but instead it captures the 'essence' of a moment with a slight blurred motion in the foreground, that oversaturated color, (especially in this evening light) and random slight focus in an unexpected part of the image. Plus due to the lens on these cameras, that beautiful natural darkening around the edges frames the shot with no tricky photoshop - this image is shot with no flash, and no special additional lenses. For me it brings me right back to the special feeling of friends walking onto the beach at sunset your first day on vacation with a chilled cocktail in hand after a long car ride.
