FROM THE BLUE RIDGE PARKWAY IN LATE AUTUMN
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.

[From Afton Mountain, Near Waynesboro, Virginia, October 26, 2012]
About twenty-five JPGers assembled in Richmond, Virginia, in late October for the 4th meet-up in a continuing series (following Nashville, Phoenix, and St. Louis.)
On the first full day, we drove west to the Blue Ridge Mountains, about 75 miles away. The fog was very heavy, and we could not see â€œthe car ahead of us.â€ However, as we continued to climb the Blue Ridge Parkway, the fog lifted and there, below us, lay the Shenandoah Valley and the Allegheny Mountains beyond. And, if you look carefully, you can see I-81 snaking through the Valley.
We were about two weeks too late for the peak colors, but we were not disappointed.
The Shenandoah Valley is rich in history and folklore, and we were delighted to have this opportunity.
These large meet-ups will likely continue. If you are interested, please write to me privately, and I will make sure you are added to the â€œmaster mailing list.â€ No salesman will call!
As always, thank you for stopping by!
