Chapel of the Holy Cross..
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.

this is a repost of a shot that I took while in Sedona a couple of years ago..... I thought it suitable for this theme............ here is a little bit of it's history :
The unique architecture & location of the chapel are the inspiration of Marguerite Bruswig Staude, who went on a trip to NYC in 1932. She observed that a cross could be seen in the newly constructed Empire State Building when viewed from a certain angle, and was inspired to build a church based on that design.
Staude kept an eye out all over Europe and the US for the ideal location, and she was especially struck by the beauty of Sedona, Arizona. She decided to build her chapel there, which would be a "monument to faith, but a spiritual fortress so charged with God, that it spurs man's spirit godward." The Chapel of the Holy Cross was completed in April 1956.
It's truly a sight to behold!!! Photographs can not do it justice......
