Dear Me: Day 73
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 had no great revelations today. There were no major "ahas". It was just a day. Work was rough, but not terrible. I got some things accomplished today. I left some stuff undone. I enjoyed my coworkers banter, but kept mostly to myself. I passed on happy hour after work, I stayed to work on a report, captured 2 different parts of tonight's sunset, then came home grateful for a special dinner brought from Norma's.
And as I sat to contemplate my message for the day I decided that there was a message to find between the lines of my routine.
I work a lot. I work hard. But as I stood at the window of our office, camera in hand and marveled at the sunset, I realized that being the photographer that I am gives me a unique view unto itself.
Because even after a long stressful day, I saw, and captured something that took my breath away. And in that moment, my day melted behind me. I breathed more deeply, saw more clearly, and had a moment of sheer pleasure.
And when I saw this quote I thought how perfectly it fit that moment. Because these ARE the days I'll look back on, the ones I remember. The ones I WANT to remember. So in between my crazy hours, and my stressful days-- I want to make more of an effort to do just this: relax... enjoy... and create days that I'll look back on and remember... create MY "good old days."
