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.

The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hid in a field..St Matthew 13: 44
Draft Horse Field Day, October 1, 2005, at a farm in River Falls, Wisconsin...
I think if I were to do this candid over again...I either would have done a
selective focus on the horses to diffuse the couple in the front, or focused
on the couple to blur the horses....I might have done a vertical rather than a
horizontal..and perhaps not leave so much of the scenery in the shot.
A picture depends on how much you want to leave in or leave out and sometimes it is best to take several shots at different angles depending on how long the couple would have stood there in that same position.
It was a grab shot and I shot it quickly. Sometimes you have to do that also before the scene changes and you lose the shot. I see other things also which I could have done differently...such as changing my angle so that the person by the horses is not coming out of the ladies shirt in front..but maybe that could not be avoided if that individual walked into the picture at the same time that I shot it.
What would you have done to improve this candid shot?
