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.

On the Beara Peninsula, Ireland, This tomb was first erectedat the end of the Stone Age round 3,000 to 2,000 BC, with it's entrance deliberately facing the distant Mizen Peak.
Archaeologists recently uncovered some burnt human bone which they radiocarbon dated to about 2,000 BC and believe the tomb continued to be used as a sacred site in the centuries that followed. Shallow pits, probably for food offerings, were dug into the chamber floor in the later Bronze Age (between 1,250 and 550 BC) and Celtic Iron Age people filled a pit with sea-shells and fish bones sometime between 124 and 224 AD. Whale bones were also found from this period.
The ritual use of this site ended with the arrival of Christianity, but it was briefly resumed during the 18th century when the tomb was used as an altar by priests who were forbidden by law to say mass in their churches..
