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.

Cause me to hear thy loving kindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust... Psalm 143:8
I was very mad at myself, this morning because I forgot to recharge my battery last night for my camera and it went dead on me this morning...then my back up battery was also dead ... However, I was freezing anyway and it gave me an excuse to go back in the house to get warm:)
I apologize for having to resort to posting my last self portrait that I did yesterday morning, that I shot underneath what is left of our weeping willow tree. It is sprouting against all odds after it got knocked down from a wind storm last October. If you notice part of the limb which looks like an elbow is hanging in the air as if in limbo:) (which is how I felt when my batteries went dead this morning. LOL) I wish I had allowed more space for my hand that is going out of the picture but when you shoot a self portrait...much of it is estimating since you can't see yourself ...I am still waiting to shoot the perfect picture which hasn't happened yet:)
Update: The good news is that later I discovered one picture that I shot this morning before the battery went dead didn't turn out too badly but I am going to use it for something else other than in my light series which I will be showing soon....
