CHICAGO RIVER CRUISE â€“ ARCHITECTURAL TOUR #1
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.

John Linton recently uploaded some outstanding photos of Chicagoâ€™s iconic architecture. [Click on http://jpgmag.com/photos/3438257for one of my favorites.]
Since Linda and I had a trip to Chicago coming up on Friday, October 12, I wrote John and asked him for some recommendations. He strongly suggested the â€œarchitectural tourâ€ from the vantage point of the Chicago River. We acted on Johnâ€™s advice, and we are glad we did!
On our arrival in Chicago, we took a taxi to the Palmer House, where we met our friends Janice and Mike, who had flown in from Marin County, California. (Mike and I were in the same army outfit more than 40 years ago, and the two â€œlieutenantsâ€ have remained best friends ever since.)
The four of us took a cab to the Navy Pier, where we boarded our boat. Everyone on board was French Canadian, except the four of us (and the crew), which added to the fun.
In the lower right, two very attractive ladies are waiting for the tour to begin.
In the larger photo, the boat has left the pier, turned around, and has â€œset sailâ€ for the mouth of the Chicago River (just to the right of the small boat, at center).
The buildings you see here are only an appetizer. I could never have imagined what we were about to see during the next hour and a half.
As always, thanks for stopping by this page!
