Mannequin with DR
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.

DR or Dynamic Range - the ability to reproduce the darkest darks to the brightest brights - is not a feature that many digital camera users talk about or know about. Unless they own a Fujifilm with the Super CCD sensor.
This is the one feature where Fujifilm is king. Untouchable. No other brand of digital camera, no matter how technologically advanced or costly, comes close!
For this reason, the Fujifilm S5 Pro DSLR, which I bought in November 2007, is often touted as a "wedding camera" as it renders very well the groom in black and the bride in white.
But even though I am not a wedding photographer, I greatly appreciate the extended DR of my Fujifilm. In an image like this, shot off a shop window display, I can confidently say that ALL other cameras would produce a large patch of distracting brightness on the right. The Fujifilm S5 Pro provides enough brightness to add brilliance, but minus the glare.
