Here Come "The Knuckles"..
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 received my "Studio Kit", and wanted to give it a test shot.
This was taken in my living room with my black backdrop, and one Vivitar 285HV firing directly into a Large Softbox (camera right at 1/16th power).
It was shot using my Tokina 12-24mm (at 17mm?) with his fist really close to my lens, and I think it came out nice! I did a quick 3-step "secret sauce" edit, and BAM!!!
Although I am mainly an "on-location" shooter, I am really thinking of getting into the "Studio" world, but I'll be adding my own twist..as you can see.
This is my younger brother, and he actually is an amateur boxer, so there is a bit of truth to the picture ;-)
If all goes well with this studio plan, I will be opening my first portrait studio in June of 09!!!!
Tomorrow, I pick up my studio lights!!!
I hope that works out well too!!
Anyway, as always, I really do hope you like my shot!!
