A SIGN OF THE APOCALYPSE #27 â€“ â€œCLOSED â€“ NOT A STOREâ€
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.

[Silver Plume, Colorado, Pop. 203; July, 2012]
I can't imagine why anyone would think this was a store . . . . .
Silver Plume, Colorado, an ancient silver mining camp, is located in the Georgetown-Silver Plume National Historic District. The Districtâ€™s main attraction is the â€œGeorgetown Loop Historic Mining & Railroad Parkâ€ and its narrow-gauge passenger train.
The passenger train that connects Silver Plume and Georgetown is justifiably famous. As the train huffs and puffs through the magnificent mountain scenery, it executes a series of 360Â° loops, which is rare in railroading.
I highly recommend the Railroad Park and its passenger train.
Colorado has dozens of ancient mining camps, many of them clinging to life. I have found that these small â€œdots on the mapâ€ almost always offer good photographic opportunities.
As always, thanks for stopping by!
