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.

And God said, Let there be light: and there was light... Genesis 1:5
I waited until the sun lit on the Morning Glory vine... and the Angel's Trumpets flowers before I stepped into this shot. The sun was so bright I had to turn my face away..I also turned my camera on the tripod at an angle rather than to have it facing the sun. I was happy to see I caught some rays on this last picture that I shot this morning. Still waiting for the Morning glories to bloom but they are late this year. Hopefully, before this series is over I'll capture the morning glories in the sun. The vine keeps growing taller but there are no flowers on it:)
This is a short early morning series that I decided on my own to do until September 18th where I am following the path of the sun...Originally I had planned on starting this series at 6:00 AM but it is still dark yet here so from 6:30 until 8:00 AM I am outside taking pictures ...Of course I don't keep ALL of my mistakes and delete more than I keep...I have virtually little experience with early morning light as I had been getting up later in the morning for several years but I am changing my old habits....I know this shot I uploaded today is far from perfect but it is an effort and definitely a work in progress. I would have preferred the Angel's Trumpets to be more defined, rather than to be washed out in the sun but I do like the rays.
