Going back to work
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.

Near the World Bank, Washington DC on a rainy , gloomy day.
I discovered Cartier Bresson photographies less than a year ago. I was captivated by the interestingness of their pictures, that were taken in a mere second, in the glimpse of the moment. I have read and seen every book that I can get my hands on with pictures of Cartier Bresson. His shooting also made me appreciate more black and white photographs, ant the spontaneity of taking pictures.
This photo was taken from my car on a day going back to work (as the tittle says) I was standing in the STOP sign near the World Bank in DC and had my camera with me, a small leica d-lux4, I though it was interesting that the day looked gloomy and also the effect of the raindrops in the windshield of my car. It was a lucky shot and it came like this.
