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.

We had a tornado come thru Byron last night. Luckily, the damage was limited to a motel. Those sirens terrify me. They make you feel trapped.
The first picture is of the Days Inn in Byron. They lost their roof. The second image shows the parking lot next door to the motel. They had some damage to their gas pumps and a few signs. The third image shows a car under the roof. The 4th image is a telephone pole that snapped. The 5th image shows the pool at the days inn. We swim there often. Part of the roof is in the pool. The 6th image shows a telephone pole that was snapped right out of the ground. The last is another telephone pole with a broken sign in the background.
Everything is taped off but everyone in Byron knows me as "the Photographer from Byron" so the yellow tape didn't stop me.
I love that morning light!
I had a shoot yesterday morning and am spending the weekend with my kids after I get these shots off to the news papers so forgive me for being away. I will be at the studio working all day tomorrow and teaching tomorrow night but I will be able to catch up some then.
