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.

For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. St. Luke 12:34
How life can define
The heart of the vine...
Oh the joy it was bringing
On the 26th of October
Is what I remember
As the phone began ringing...
My sister and I both cried
When her news to impart
Was that mother had died
From a clot to the heart...
How death does define
The heart of the vine!
Poetry by me AJP
As this self portrait was in the process of being shot by the Dutchman pipe vine on the morning of October 26th, 2011, I did indeed hear the phone ringing through the window...I have been going over some of these pictures in my files of what I was doing on the morning Mom died and I find it ironical that I would be holding these heart leaves on the vine just seconds before I heard the news of her death....This portrait oddly as it sounds brings comfort and peace to me now because of the symbolism.
