Forgot AutoFocus was Off
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.

Stef was working with the horse trainer and I went to take some photos.
The lighting was very bad. All the photos were shot at ISO 1600 F/2.8 and a shutter speed of 80. The lens was a Sigma 70-200mm f/2.8.
I turned the autofocus off at times because the lens couldn't autofocus because of the low light and chose to manual focus. Forgot to turn it on for a series of shots. This is one of the photos after a lot of editing.
Yesterday I thought I really liked this shot but I wanted the horse head razor sharp aganist the background and it was slightly out of focus.
The new theme gave a reason to post it.
It's hard to see with JPG Low Res Images. Displayed on a 28" monitor at 5700 pixels or printed out in 13" x 19" the unsuitablilty of this image is plain to see
