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.

For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again...though the root thereof wax old in the earth...Job 14::7-8
I had fun shooting this old root today underneath the base of the trunk of what is left of our enormous weeping willow tree that fell to the ground last October.
I made it into a diptych turning one side to face the other side in a mirrored image... I was amazed how by doing this I could see the formation of a barn owl clearly take shape in front of my eyes. I love finding things like this!
An old tree root
Might start to hoot
And form a scowl
If it is turned around
To become a barn owl
Living in the ground..
Poetry by me AJP.
