The Big Chill for Vin
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.

Songkran Festival, Bangkok, Thailand
April is the warmest and most humid month in Thailand so it is probably no surprise that they hold their three day Songkran Festival in the middle of the month. If you are planning on visiting anywhere in Thailand on those three days expect to get wet as the Thais take to the streets to give each other (and anyone else who passes by) a good soaking. Noticed the vendor selling water guns. I was amazed that my soaked camera was still working. We soon found a taxi to take us back to the hotel.
