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.

Immense, expansive and preeminent. thats how i would describe (or at least begin to describe) this scene... :)
i was driving away from town, in an effort to escape the ever intesifying unrest that seems to have plagued the country...
upon seeing this beautiful scene, i stopped my car and stepped out to take its photo...
Scott kelby, a renowned photographer and author, says that one should 'marry' a tripod if one desires to take 'tack-sharp' photos even in broad daylight... and i totaly agree... because when i pixel-peep this one, i realize that it is slightly, very very slightly off... so dont forget to use your tripod next time :)
i did think of cropping this one several time, and the 16:9 crop was really looking good, but the 'no crop, original composition' demon got inside me and forced me to leave it intact :)
i added a SlideFilm filter to get the richer and more life-like colors, reminiscent of slidefilm, using Alienskin Exposure II :)
thanks for viewing, let's see what you think of this one :)
