In a Tuscan Doorway (For Antonio Lovison)
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).

Months ago I gave a copy of this shot to Antonio Lovison, friend and fellow JPGer (Lowison). Days earlier when he saw this on my LCD screen, he got excited and said, "oh....Deborah I really like. Where you get this?" Then he joked about going off to find where I captured this within a doorway in the Tuscan village of Montalcino.
Have no idea why, but this was the first of my images that popped into my head for this theme. At first I didn't think it was a good fit, but then figured Strength in Numbers means different things. Without the number of bamboo strips in this shot there not only wouldn't be a door hanging, but no picture representing the area where this hangs. As of yet I haven't come across a single screen door in Italy. During the warm days of spring and fall and especially during the heat of summer, door hangings, such as this, cover open doorways, allowing outside air in and providing privacy.
