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.

In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and he shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3: 6
I decided to continue on with my flowers series ...So far the regular flowers in our yard are taking their time to bloom and it may take awhile before I complete this series. At 8:00 tonight I did some practice shots with the flowering Black Locust Trees where all the big black bugs were crawling on the blossoms)...When I got in the house I discovered they were crawling all over me too. Yikes! A few times I got jabbed in the face with the sharp twigs when I was trying to hold them up so I could stand underneath in the time limit I gave myself of 10 seconds to get in the picture. This was not as easy as it looks ...I set the tripod on the driveway which stands higher than the level of the ditch bank.. where I stepped down into some tall weeds. I got
my exercise running up and down the ditch bank to try the best angle. We have had several
garter snakes that we've seen lately that like to slither around in tall weeds but fortunately didn't step on any otherwise the camera might have caught a much different expression.
