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.

Here is the scenario. After shooting a lovely Memphis Tennesse Wedding, Kari and I arrive at the couple's reception site and panic. All of the elements necessary to make up photographer's worst nightmare are present... a near dark room with two sources of light: a bright spotlight that gives back light to the subjects and BLACK lights that make almost everything white look purple.
What do you do? Keep shooting and think on your feet. After making some adjustments to capture the essential elements, I thought why not just try to embrace the challenges. I ask the couple to come to the stage. They could barely see each other, and I could barely see them...but I could feel that this moment was special for them. I jump off the stage, shoot directly into the light, and capture these images.
