Nature's Signature @ Ayers Rock
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.

I am not one who likes to visit - and take pictures of - famous places. When I travel, I generally give them a miss.
Ayers Rock, the bigget rock in the world, is an exception. I always held a fascination for the place and, when an opportunity arose for me to visit Australia in 1986, I made a special - and very long - detour there.
I had a rented car and drove solo from Alice Springs to Ayers Rock. It was one of my most memorable travel adventures ever. And when I was there, I drove around the rock - a distance of about 10 km - and photographed it from various angles, using up about four rolls of film in the process, which was considered a lot at that time.
This is my all time favourite image of the rock. If you view closely, you can see a naked tree at the bottom right. That's how big the crack - which I call Nature's Signature - is.
I can quite safely bet that NOBODY has so far taken a similar picture of the world's most famous rock!
