Skating on Thin Air! (Now in Stories)
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.

Now that the NHL lockout is over, fans will be seeing more of this. The result of a devastating body check, this was taken in 1982 and was the recipient of both National Press Photographers Association and Canadian Press Awards.
There are two ways to shoot hockey. The easy way: Simply focus on the net and wait for the action to come to you. It will. Unfortunately, it results in a lot of shots that look very much the same.
The hard way: Follow focus on the puck carrier. This is difficult, especially with a 300mm 2.8 lens set wide open and shooting this tight. The depth of field is almost nil so your focus has to be dead on, which requires dedicated concentration. However, by shooting the hard way you occasionally will get shots like this. They are rare but so satisfying. Shot for Canadian Press.
