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.

It's impossible to sum up New York City in a single photograph. I think it's even difficult to sum up this great city in a whole body of work. Take ten shots from ten photographers, and you have one hundred different pictures of one hundred different aspects of what makes New York unique. Once you get past the landmarks and cliche shots, a photographic journey through the city becomes a truly personal journey. There are millions of stories happening every single day; one of the greatest things about living here is that just by traveling a few blocks, you feel like you travel to another world.
In this shot, I take a step back and try to breathe it all in as I look at my new home from a distance. Summertime in the city is hot and hazy, and often proceeds at a lazier pace. Since the city often runs in fast forward compared to other places, slowing down for even a second reminds you how grand and wonderful life here can be.
