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.

Behold I go forward, but he is not there; and backward, but I cannot perceive him. Job 23: 8
While forward she moves
To face the future ahead
Turning backward he loves,
After he has been fed...
E'en when he's not there
For her eyes to perceive,
Together they share
The seeds to receive.
Poetry by me, AJP
I was hoping the male purple finch would turn around for the camera but saved this picture anyway because I liked the resigned expression on his mates face who was probably thinking, "there she is with the camera again sticking it in my face!" At the moment both of them were taking a short break from eating their seeds.
The old rolled window pane sometimes gives some strange effects when trying to shoot through the glass ...very challenging to get the right focus with other settings besides manual focus. The little speckles you see are from the window where the birds like to peck at it with their beaks on the outside of the glass.
