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 would have to say that my favorite feature is by far the night setting on my camera. I have taken photos before at night with other cameras, and the most awesome thing is being able to see all the features in the distance that you can't even see at night, or even sometimes during the day. I love how the light from the bolt not only lights up the clouds, but brings to light the Colorado National Monument in the distance. Not just the range itself, but shows the mists in each of the canyons. Features you can not see by day from this distance. My previous camera did not have this feature, and now, while I would love a better camera, I am always leery to upgrade for fear my night mode won't take as great of lightning photos. But an SLR... if I won, I'd sure test it out come storm season.
