Self portrait on bench with Impressionist background
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.

Let your light so shine... to glorify your Father which is in heaven...St. Matthew 5: 16
This is another self portrait that I did this afternoon with the impressionist background.
I have been redoing some of the earlier self portraits in my photo essay on portrait lighting
with flood lights to replace a few that I had done earlier that I was not satisfied with..
I've had time to review what I had already done and I could see where I needed to make
improvements....I am not a professional photographer nor do I have any desire to be a model at age of 70 years old but before I leave this earth, I just want to do my best and to do your best
takes work and learning by mistakes.
