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.

Makest the outgoings of the morning to rejoice...Psalm 65:6
Well, I got up at 6:00 AM this morning...Which is really EARLY for me and it was still dark as night outside...So I waited until 6:30 before venturing outside. I was outside for a good hour taking various pictures of flowers, including a shot of a female cardinal who flew on an ear of corn in the corn field but I chose this SP by the old Farmall tractor in the weeds that I shot at 7:11 AM that I liked the best for the soft even lighting and for nostalgic reasons..
There was no pretty sunrise this morning that I was hoping for and I am still waiting for the morning glories to bloom yet .. I had fun anyway and I loved getting up early once I got myself out of bed and pried my eyes open to greet the day:) This will be a short series until the 18th as I wanted to get in practice with early morning light. I had been going to bed very late at night for several years now and I am changing my habits to get up earlier to work with morning light for this series. Now I realize I have been missing out on the best time of the day for shooting pictures. The upload I shot today is right from the camera with no photo editing. I had a terrible time trying to upload this today but finally got it to go through after several attempts.
