Lone Tree in Tea
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.

When I took my first trip to Africa, I wanted to come away with the perfect, National Geographic-like â€œAfrican Tree standing on the savannahâ€ shot. You know the one, a statuesque tree silhouetted by a fiery-hot African sun â€“ complete with heat waves of distortion.....
Well, the country I went to was Malawi Africa, and itâ€™s not like the Serengeti. While it can be hot there, itâ€™s mountainous with rolling fields of tea. This lone tree caught my eye because it stands there all on itâ€™s own, and over the next year-and-a-half it became the model for my â€œAfrican Tree on the savannahâ€ shot. This picture was the first one I shot, and it still captures my attention as it did on the day I first saw it.
