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.

Today, I found this secret lake. On a drive home from town, I took a dirt road that I had never been down, just to see what was down it.
To my delight, I came upon
a secluded lake. No cars, people, just a quiet and peaceful place. It seems that there are rarely any people there. So I named it the Secret Lake. Shhhh.....don't tell anybody.
It is my secret.
All the photos of this place are not fooled around with other than just a little increase in contrast. No photoshoping was done. This is pretty much as I found it.
The reflection in the first shot was so amazing that I thought it was some problem with my camera but upon closer examination found that it is just the crystal clear reflection that creates a kind of visual confusion. Please feel free to spend a little time at the Secret Lake.
