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.

Yesterday (September 8th) I had an interview in downtown Boston. I parked my car, went, and returned here. I brought my camera along with me just in case there was anything interesting, and at the corner where I left my car I found this. It was funny to me that I should find it while coming back from a meeting specifically centered around following my dreams.
For you who might be unfamiliar, this is a "piece" (painting? graffiti? illustration?) by street artist Banksy. Look him up and check out other examples of his work: controversial but always interesting.
You can also check it out on flickr: http://www.flickr.com/photos/crichgraphics/4975026204/
This photo is HDR, taken with my Nikon D5000 and merged in photoshop: iso-200, f/5.6, exposures were 1/50, 1/100, 1/200.
