if you ever need me, I'll be right here. (for christopher kontoes)
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.

Another image of Manhattan from Roosevelt Island. When I scanned this image I immediately thought of Christopher Kontoes. If you have not seen his work and you like my film images, you will love his! He has an unique and consistent style that amazes me each time he posts a new image.
Christopher also has oustanding titles to his images, way cooler than anything I could imagine. Does anyone get my title reference?
Created using a Diana+ camera with a 35mm back and Lomo Redscale film. Negative scanned as grayscale with my Epson v700 Perfection scanner. No digital manipulation, not even dust and scratch removal.
Ps. I just realized that I forgot to flip this image horizontally after I scanned it upside down. Looking west towards Manhattan from Roosevelt Island, the smoke stack is on the left side of the Queensboro (59th Street) Bridge and the Roosevelt Island Tramway is on the right side. I knew something didn't look right! Oh well, I think I like it better this way (with the dominant line proceeding from the left to the center of the image) anyway.
