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.

Shall thy wonders be known in the dark?...Psalms 88:12
We are indeed anxious to see the sun shine again.. I shot this picture at 11:40 AM through our kitchen window which contains old rolled glass. (Not the easiest glass to focus through) I used my new Tamron 70-300 mm lens which I am loving very much.
It was over-cast lighting all day and shortly after I shot this picture it started to rain..As you notice in spite of the snow that we had earlier this week and last weekend, the day lily shoots are looking healthy along the sides of the woods. I wanted to get as much sharpness as I could, shooting through the window so I stopped down and used manual focus with a fast enough shutter speed to safely hand hold. It really deepened the tones, but it is exactly how it looked outside..and sometimes miracles can be performed even in darkness with photography. This is why I prefer manual focus as it gives us more control to adjust the exposures to our liking..
Focal length 70 mm
Exposure time 1/200
ISO speed 800
