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.

[Cave Creek, Arizona, November 6, 2011]
Our hostess, Mary Brown, scheduled an astonishing series of events for the JPG pioneers, including a steer-roping competition in tiny Cave Creek, Arizona.
About 30 cowboys participated, including these two lovely cowgirls.
The rules were simple. The chute would open and the steer would bolt for the other end of the arena, with two riders in hot pursuit. The first rider would lasso his head, and then the second rider would lasso his hind legs.
The scoring system was comprised of several elements, but by far speed was the most important factor. The winning team roped their steer in less than eight seconds. It had to be seen to be fully appreciated.
The quarter horses were very handsome, as were the saddles and all of the appurtenant equipment. The horsemanship was highly skilled.
We enjoyed this event very much.
As always, thanks for stopping by!
