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.

I visited my mother and brother in the Verde Valley Arizona in mid November to mid December of 2012 and was able to find time to visit and document the infamous and much forgotten an neglected Jerome Cemetery where the majority of the graves bore no name plates or information whatsoever.
This grave, my number 1 out of 54 was right inside the gate and was somewhat off kilter and very overtaken by some nasty looking cacti.
Off to the right you can see 2 very small graves of what likely are the final resting places of someone's children. In the later part of the 1800's and the early part of the 1900's times were tough and health care was near non existent.
Many deaths were caused by mine mishaps and fights for the adults, and sickness and disease for the young innocent children.
The grave overtaken by cacti bore no name plate as the majority of graves in the Jerome cemetery.
Time had overtaken this place, neglect was very sadly evident.
Most graves were surrounded by wrought iron fence and or iron pipe as evidence shows here.
I could not help but feel sadness at the neglect for this place and for the souls at rest brought here by some uknown reason(s).
