Knees for Michele
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.

Michele Randellis the best "knee photographer / artist" that I know.
Well, she is the best out of one, for I know of no other, LOL!. In any case, she is a truly excellent artist, with that rare ability to make a pair of knees (or, for that matter, most other body parts and photographic subjects) look absolutely beautiful and sensuous, like this image which remains deeply etched in my mind.
I came across this knee photo opportunity recently at, of all places, a gamelan concert. After the performance, this girl sat in front of the instruments and did some real cheesy poses - the sort with her finger pressing into her cheeks - while her beau photographed her.
All this was happening maybe 2 metres in front of me, slightly to my right. I saw her knees and thought immediately of Michele's photos.
I stole three quick shots, but did not have time to think and get a "correct" exposure; the main lights having been switched off as the performance had ended. Happily, the under-exposure works well in this case.
So this one is for you, Michele - your inspiration to me, my tribute to you.
