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.

Summertime fun in the city. Chicago's Millennium Park is so kid friendly, even at night. The creators obviously understood that kids love breaking the rules... especially the one about not getting wet.
We were in the city for my birthday last year and it was a steamy couple of days. So the crowd at Millennium was no surprise... kinda' like the inmates were out on pass.
With such a slow shutter speed plus the movement, I figured everything would be one big blur, so first I was surprised. Then I was delighted. The aperture was wide open so I kicked up the ISO to grab some more light. And, I knew I would be snapping some night shots of Buckingham Fountain, so I had the tripod. All obstacles considered, I ended up with some pretty unique night shots of my kinda' town.
To see what I saw, check it out in lightbox.
Many thanks to JPG and Lensbaby for acknowledging my work in this way. Actually, it is my first award but hopefully not the last. I am truly honored.
Also, a big thanks to Donna Mullins for the generous spotlight. Big sappy grin here.
