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.

Another of the pictures of the "lost" and then finally developed, strangely exposed Holga snapshots from Jamaica, 11/06
...fairly apt representation of my stay on the island...
I've got to say, I have NO IDEA how the heck this picture was created!!! If you can help explain it, I'd be in your debt....
As always, pictures taken with a Holga can have their beautiful strange-memory vibe going on due to light leakage, vignetting, etc. (among other reasons) I've also found it can be difficult to get a roll of film to roll tightly. This one in paticular was very loose when I finished it and all pictures toward the end are warped, bleached, and have multiple exposures.
This picture, however, was unique as I can't explain how the chess board and the sky/tiki hutts were exposed on the same frame.
It was near the middle of the roll, and I believe this is where the effects of the loose roll started...
Maybe I didn't advance the film? (I'm always very, very vigilant about that, though)
The most believable theory is that the local "imbibments" probably had something to do with it....
