Everyone Gets Excited When The Fire Truck Comes Around
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.

I took this on the sidewalk in front of my house. I was throwing a birthday party for my mother and she happens to be friends with the chief at the fire station down the street. He dropped by with the hose truck and a couple of firemen to sing "Happy Birthday" to her. My neighbor's kids loved getting to see the truck and climb on it. They also love to have their picture taken. This shot was taken right as the truck was driving away and sounding its siren, thus the look of surprise on the little girls face. To me, it captures the wild and diverse jumble of the urban south, the pleasures of childhood, the lush colors of spring and the porch culture that exists in many old neighborhoods.
