ya talking to me?
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.

my first post with the D700 :)
well, as you may know by now, i've sold the D3 and now own the D700 :) there was nothing wrong with the D3 at all, but i got the D700 just to experiment :) its doing very well so far :)
it is, in my short observation, slightly grainier than the D3 and the shutter lag (very important factor) is a couple of nano seconds delayed... :) but thats something i can live with :)
dont worry, my next purchase (very soon) will be the medium format Mamiya 645 AFD III with the Mamiya ZDb back and the 80mm Sekor lens :) its all about trying new gear and enjoying it :)
back to this photo :) it was taken in the eve today :) this kid is Tahaa, very cute, intelligent and quick-witted :)
for this photo, i asked him to smile but he gave me a 'robert deniro' look instead! hahah :)
i chose to leave it in VIVID mode, which i've been shooting in lately just for a change :)
slightly, very slightly cropped :) and thats it :) ISO 6400 :) 2.8 with the Nikkor 80-200 :)
thanks for viewing :) let's see what you think :)
