Painting the Sky with the Passage of Time
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.

Imagine the sunrises, sunsets, storms, and sunny days this water tower has seen in all its years. This day was not a particuarly memorable day in its history, but I will remember it as it appeared through the lens of my antique camera and now captured forever in this digital medium.
The Clack produces only 8 images on a roll of 120 film. This forces me to slow down and carefully compose each shot. This slowing down of time is exactly what is being portrayed in this photograph. The colors and clouds bleed into the background, highlighting how little has changed in this scene over time.
This photo is being featured at the 21st Annual Rhode Island Open at the Warwick Museum of Artfrom October 9 - November 3, 2007.
Created using my 1950's AGFA Clack with 4 year expired Fuji Velvia RVP120 (ISO 50) slide film cross processed with C-41. Photo scanned with an HP Scanjet 4890. No digital manipulation necessary!
In the story Expired Film - The Tool of My "Trade".
