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 shot this picture several years ago with a film camera. There was no blood shed. Our dog will be 15 in April. The possum did not play dead as they usually do...She was a young possum and she sauntered away after hissing and growling at the dog. The ground was pure ice from a sleet storm that we had and I literally had to lie down flat on the ground to take this picture as I could not stand on my feet from the time I went outside the door until I came back in. Koki, our dog scooted out the door with me before I could stop her. She was 2 years old at the time and very curious but she knew better than to attack the possum...Would I do this again? I don't think I would chance it.
An update...Our dog, Koki, passed away at 17 years old in 2011...She was blind
and deaf in her last year of life. This picture is of her when she was young and
full of energy.
