Inspiration by . . .
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.

Choosing one JPG member that inspires me is impossible. There are too many out there that inspire me everyday, and for (sometimes vastly) various reasons: Steve H., Photography Seven, Portia S, Jolinda, Tomas A, Hector O, Pilar CiG, Peggy Sue, Norman BC, Henk S, Aquiles, Jay S, Mark G, Jason P, Jessica H., Jean Pierre, Amy S, Glenn B, Nelson C, Jessie M just to name a few . . . as there are so many more. And each have their own subject matter they creatively and passionately display supremely well. So choosing a tribute to one is just impossible.
There are two who have been consistently and/or patiently supportive with feedback and guidance that I wish to highlight and thank with this latest photo: JEFFREY BOUCHER and SIMON LE.
If it weren't for Jeffrey, I wouldn't be on JPG. He introduced me to this site and has been a support from the beginning with comments and advice. He has inspired me to keep going when at times I've wanted to just bag it.
Simon Le has taught me new things - and I am an OLD dog who doesn't like learning new tricks. He has inspired me to learn.
Behind this photo - Jeffrey introduced me to this fabulous wine, and Simon taught me the aging effect I love so much. So, to Jeffrey and Simon - this is for you and THANK YOU.
