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 was covering a Country Fair when I saw this youngster pretending to be driving this tractor.
I think if you gave him the keys, he'd be gone. It was a one shot deal and the moment vanished.
You always have to be quick but ready with your exposures. I shot this with a Nikon 300mm 2.8
wide open. I had this image in here but felt it was too dark, so I fixed the flesh tones 10%, lightened it up and added just a bit more contrast. I love this kid's expression. This photo truly says when I grow up. You never know what you will find at a Fall Festival. There's some many things going on at once but the key is always be ready and keep your eye to that viewfinder and stop checking exposures on the LCD screen. I make it a strict habit not to. I just make believe I'm shooting film. We're all photographers here and shouldn't be constantly looking at the LCD. We should know what we're going to get when we shoot it. Seeing the results later is the element of surprise. Also while you continue to check your LCD on your digital camera not only are use comsuming battery power but you could also be missing the shot of a lifetime.
I just wanted to remind all of us, including myself! I hope you like the photo. Every shot I take is with pure passion! To God be the Glory for giving me this wonderful gift!! Michael Asaro photo
