Nature. Architecture II
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.

Not so much my backyard but more my "front lawn" - except that I don't own a lawn either.
Like about 90 percent of people in Singapore, I live in a government-built high rise apartment called an HDB flat, HDB being the Housing and Development Board.
My unit is on the 12th and uppermost floor of this apartment block.
The maroon/yellow column in the middle of this picture is the lift column. It was added only about two years ago as the original block of flats, built over 30 years ago, had lifts that only stopped on the 1.5th, 5.5th and 10.5th floor. Now, in view of an aging population, the HDB has "upgraded" the lifts to have them stop at every floor.
For me, the added bonus of this LUP (Lift Upgrading Programme - Singaporeans love acronyms) is that there is now a new wall to catch the shadow of the nearby tree. When I return home in the late afternoon, it is quite a sight.
This is part of a "Nature. Architecture" series that I am working on, to show the relationship between plants and buildings as well as other man-made structures and how they enhance each other.
