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.

The Carnival of Venice... Definitely one of the most beautiful carnivals of the whole world!
Although Venice is a once in a lifetime place to visit, seeing the Serenissima during the Carnival is a totally unique experience thanks to the atmosphere created by thousands of Venice lovers posing with beautiful, extravagant yet very elegant disguises. The whole city breathes with the Carnival, vibrates with the Carnival, lives with the Carnival. Even tourists eventually play the game, wearing small masks or hats in order to participate, just for a while, to the overall spectacle. I could go there again and again...
This picture was taken from the Piazzetta, next to the Palazzo Ducale, with the Basilica di San Giorgio Maggiore in the background.
