Fish Stories Told Here
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.

That certain something? For Me, Fishing!
This past winter in New Jersey was the warmest in recorded history, so that being the case I spent a good bit of time doing a lot of crappie fishing. So, as the story goes; the other day I was standing next to a young guy who was catching one fish after another while I wasn't getting a one. After what seemed like hours that he humiliated me, my friend caught a good size crappie, which he held it up in the air and said: "Yeah! This one is the record!" His fish was about 8 inches long and was a good size for a crappie. A few seconds later, after being shut out all day, I hooked into the biggest crappie that I and the folks around the stream agreed they had ever seen. I turned to the young fisherman and proudly held up my catch and in a booming voice and said: No! This one is the record! Turned out my fish was over 12 inches long and 6 inches wide and almost a pound in weight, I know for some of you trophy fisherman out there that doesn't sound too big, but for the over fished, polluted streams of NJ, that is a big crappie and I'm proud to say I caught him!
