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.

Looking down the old exposed driveshaft line that would have powered a whole row of the hosiery knitters at one time, but most have been removed.
The wheels near the floor would drive exposed belts (dangerous) to power the machines. Nowadays each machine would probably have it's own motor.
This is another in-camera HDR that I worked over.
16mm prime again on the NEX-3. It is usable stopped down and the extra width is welcome in a shot like this. It does have good contrast, but the corners can be very soft, the whole border soft wide-open, and then there's the CA...
Hopefully the late model NEX-C3, NEX-5N, and the new NEX-7 address automatic CA correction when outputting JPG files.
I should note that I am quite taken with the NEX-3 and also bought a NEX-5 body for the IR remote capability and to shoot without changing lenses in dirty areas (16mm possible with fisheye on one camera, 18-55 kit on the other). These will be my new light-weight Urbex kit.
