A Gentleman of 6th & B
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.

We met Vernon while hunting for a subject to photograph in a small 6th & B Garden in NYC. It wasn't long before he became every photographers muse and after obliging us one after one, I finally was able to strike up a conversation with him.
"I've been here 58 years. From the Virgin Islands. Things were different back then and a lot has changed. But, I come here every day to remember what it was like," His focused eyes reminiscing the days of his youth as a struggling worker, confirmed by his well experienced face.
Other of his peers shied away from the clicks of the intrusive black boxes. As we head out, I took a last glance back, his eyes fixed on us as he gave a tip on his hat like a perfect gentleman.
