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.

Being the brave photographer that I am, I wanted to get right into the action of Hurricane Sandy by having the waves break over my head as they crash against the storm barrier. My sister Cyndie and I, fighting against the driving wind, started walking bravely toward where the waves were pounding against the storm wall. The first wave hit. Wow! Our pace slowed. The second wave hit. Yikes! Our pace slowed even further. The third wave then hit the wall with a tremendous force. OMG! We stopped! Who needs to be any closer to get the shot? :)
