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.

This is a photograph of Sidd the Travelin Buddha resting comfortably in a tree located at the site of an abandoned missle silo in Topeka Kansas. There were numerous abandoned missle silos strewn about the stark countryside of Topeka Kansas and this was perhaps one of the smaller sites that I was able to find. The Dhammapada (Words of Wisdom) remind us that, Know this, O good man, that evil things are uncontrollable. Let not greed and wickedness drag you into suffering for a long time. This is one of my favorite passages from the Dhammapada which are words spoken by the Buddha himself and passed down through the ages. It reminds us that evil is indeed uncontrollable and to be wary of and not let the wickedness and evil of the world take hold of us and cause us to suffer for a long time. For if we give into the negative thoughts and actions that society and culture forces upon us, we will no doubt be sucked into the storm and will suffer for quite a while until we endeavor to learn and follow the true teachings of the World Honored One.
