Sidd Weeps for Japan
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.

This shot taken outside Omaha Nebraska in Sept of 2010 shows Sidd the Travelin Buddha resting upon a fallen tree.
Siddhartha's heart, mind, body and soul altogether weep for Japan and those lost and affected by this tragedy of unimaginable scope.
By endeavor, diligence, discipline and self-mastery, let the wise man make (of himself) an island that no flood can overwhelm.
Dhammapada (Words of Wisdom) #25
What this says is this, when one strives for betterment, even though one may fail, or bad things happen,one still desires for improvement, one still makes an effort with the heart in the right place.
This is sufficient in the eyes of whomever we perceive to be overlooking our world, be it Buddha or 'God'.
The tragedy in Japan will test this in those who live there and
those who watch this horrible scene unfold.
For the suffering has only begun for those just trying to survive.
Know that all things are impermanent.
Live your life according to what is right..(tolerance, thoughtfulness, compassion and love), for when the time comes, no mater what the circumstances, one will be received into the embrace of the all powerful no matter what any elect to call it.
For it, he, she, God, Buddha, they all arise from the same energy.
