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.

As Pascal pointed out the last photo I posted of this scene was really flat (and he is 100% right). I just happened to retake this photo 20 minutes ago before I read the comment. If you notice the snow keeps melting and I keep expecting it to be totally gone.
I couldn't get the similar angle, because cars are parked in the spot. I didn't spend a lot of time composing the photo (same with the previous photos). There are two young children who live in the apartment. Of course all grown men with cameras are unsavory types (wink, wink) and I didn't want to make it appear that I was photographing them (or their patio door).
4 days later (the flat photo).
If the scene still exist later today, there may be another photo in the works.
