Walking The Strip
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.

Las Vegas, NV.
My wife, Brenda, and I visited Las Vegas last month. It was her second time and my first in Sin City. I found walking The Strip to be a street photographer's dream come true. Everywhere I looked there seemed to be something worth photographing.
I'm a host of the Street Photography and Photojournalism group on RedBubble and we recently ran a challenge:
A Black and White capture of “The decisive moment.”
"That moment that captures the essence of an event in Black and White.
Capture that fleeting moment that tells the story, a moment that if not recorded will be gone forever.
An event that is gone as quickly as it arrived.
The winning photograph will capture the essence of the event in a single B/W photo.
Henri Cartier Bresson coined the term decisive moment, this journal gives us a basic understanding of it."
The challenge got me to looking through my photos for any that might fit and when JPG ran this photo challenge I thought this might make a good entry.
