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.

...As a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.. Psalm 104: 3
The sun was was still shining brightly at 6:00 PM tonight. I used the umbrella for the purpose of shading, but there are still sections of this picture that are over exposed. The only reason why I didn't delete this image is because of the unexpected bee that joined me which I thought added interest..
It actually looks like I am shading the bee on the Zinnia with my umbrella.... .I thought I heard buzzing when I knelt for this self portrait but since I didn't move or act alarmed, the sweet little bee kept on pollinating the Zinnia behind my shoulder.. and I didn't get stung. Maybe it was the same bee that I shot yesterday resting underneath the Hollyhock.
Who we are among,
Could be a friend
To join us in the light,
We might also get stung
As we take nervous flight...
Right after the camera
Records our painful grin...
This little bee on the Zinnia
Did not abuse his powers,
But kept on working after hours.
Poetry by me, AJP
