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.

Even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Fear not therefore: ye are of
more value than many sparrows...St. Luke 12: 7
I shot this picture of the little sparrow in the parking lot of the bank in our town...The building beyond where it was sitting on the brush (not a tooth brush:) is a dental office across the street...which is why there is shallow depth of field between the sparrow and the building...There are many types of sparrows but no two species are alike..
English House Sparrows
Are not known as friends
To the bluebird and the wrens;
Respect they scarcely show
Toward these songbirds rights;
When eggs are destroyed
Or baby birds are flung
Out of their nesting sites....
Making parents unemployed
From job of raising young.
A House Sparrow's self worth
Is to value its own opinion
More than others in dominion,
E'en tho' they share the earth...
Poetry by me AJP
