ARLINGTON IN (LATE) AUTUMN â€“ HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!
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 always stop by Arlington National Cemetery whenever I visit the Washington, D.C. area. I have a permanent pass, and I keep it in my briefcase.
I was in Washington all of last week. As I left The Mayflower Hotel Sunday morning, I drove south to Constitution Avenue and then west to the Lincoln Memorial. I crossed the Arlington Memorial Bridge and continued west to the Cemetery. I was waved through security and drove straight to Section 66. (Thatâ€™s easy to remember. Dad loved â€œRoute 66.â€)
The Cemetery was beautiful. There was still quite a bit of color. And it was so quiet. There was no one there! That would change the next day, with ceremonies remembering President Kennedy. (Please see previous post.)
Arlington is a national treasure. Visit when you can.
Here is wishing the entire JPG Family a HAPPY THANKSGIVING! We have a great group of people here. And a lot to be thankful for!
And thanks for stopping by!
