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.

I got out again today... Twice in one month and we are on day six of December 08.
I am really drawn to the trees.
The forest in Washington is very thick. In some places you will have 90' tall trees that are 2' a part. This is one of those places. If it werent for the break in the trees about 40 yards back there would be no light in the back of the image.
I shot this one at sunset, right in the middle of the golden hour. It was beautiful to see the light as it bounced in and out of the thick trees. The textures, shadows and smell of the forest was really fantastic.
As soon as I saw this shot on my screen It reminded me why I go out and hike to places like this.... the experience and release I get from being away from everything is really good for my soul and my mind.
I honestly think seeing things like this and taking images like this are the only times I truly unwind and relax. Its hard not to be at peace in the forest.
