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.

Sometimes you look at a photo and the title of it just hits you. I knew this was the one for today'sMovie Title Wednesday ongoing series! If you can't spot Dumbo in the photo, I don't know if anyone can help you *grin*
This is basically right out of my RAW editor with some processing done to the contrast and RGB coloring. I love to take time to compose shots, set down the tripod, grab a bunch of brackets and then spend a few hours processing that shot. However, I also just LOVE random photos of clouds and storm structures, and this is one of those shots. Just something unique you might not see everyday.
In fact, my buddy Bryan was with me and we were both in awe of this cloud...because while the camera can't capture it, in real life, it was flying from right to left and you could see the "trunk" form withing seconds and just spin upwards. In reality, I think it was just an outflow from the storm churning up clouds as it flew by. The last time I saw clouds move and form like that was in Nebraska earlier this year, and Bryan hadn't ever seen it happen like that. These were definitely storms you don't see much of around Arizona.
