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.

MUCH BETTER LARGE.
Many thanks to Debrah Leonard for spotlighting this.
A break from wrapping up the June images: A few shots of San Francisco's Transbay Terminal, which had been in operation since 1939, closed permanently on August 7.
From Wikipedia: The Transbay Terminal was a transportation complex that served long-distance buses and transbay buses from San Francisco north to Marin County, east to the East Bay, and south to San Mateo County. It was originally built as the San Francisco terminus for the electric commuter trains of the Southern Pacific, the Key System and the Sacramento Northern railroads which ran on the south side of the lower deck of the San Francisco â€“ Oakland Bay Bridge. The SP and Sacramento Northern trains ceased service across the Bay in 1941. The Key trains ran until April 1958 after which the tracks were removed from the terminal and replaced with pavement for use primarily by the buses of the publicly-owned successor of the Key System, AC Transit.
