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.

There is a little courtyard between two of the buildings in downtown Norfolk where I go to school. There are beautiful flowering trees and pots of flowers and park benches. This little piece of paradise is also home to several homeless men including Eddie as seen in this photo. I approached him and asked if I could take his picture. He answered me quietly "Yes." I thanked him and took several photos of him. The day was not very cold, although it was cool enough that, if you were going to spend the whole day and night out of doors, you would want to wear several layers. His outer most layer is a blanket.
The school had attempted to ban them from the campus for a while. Either they gave up because it's an open campus in the heart of downtown, or they gave in because they have hearts and these men really aren't bothering anyone.
I don't know.
