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 the second year that my town has held a VERY cool Civil War re-enactment. We have many locals who are into this and I too intend to be in full dress and camping out with the rest of them in a couple of years - it has been on my "wish list" for awhile. However, every year that they set up camp, I am feverishly packing for vacation and can't set aside the time (other than to drive by while running a last minute errand) to walk the camp and watch the battle.
This takes place in a field which is directly across from my house, but is separated by a river and a line of trees. When those cannons go off, the foundation on my house shakes. (I can only imagine how horrid it is to be living under these conditions for real.)
My cat has been terrorized all day.
At night, I can smell the campfires and see the glow of lanterns through the trees while period music fades in and out of the breeze. I wake up to morning drums and bugles.
I am off to Booth Bay Harbor - got a long trek ahead and hope to come back with some pics that are John Linton-worthy. :)
