Demonic Laughter! (Mwa ha ha ha ha!)
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.

Pan.Optikum (Germany) put on an awesome show in Calle 2 (2nd street, just outside of Guadalajara, Mexico) as part of Zapopum!, concentrating this year on street performers.
In most "street photos" you can count on the artist being at least relatively stationary, (if not completely stationary like the human statues) but that wasn't the case here!
The white makeup'd dude in lower left is actually a photographer (or playing the part of one)! He's shooting photos of the guy in upper right, who is composing poetry on a typewriter, then shouting it out to us. I believe he was portraying Pablo Neruda but bc they're Germans speaking not fluent Spanish (not my first language), I couldn't understand what they were saying. But every now and then I'd here, "and that's worth... A PHOTO!" and bam! off would go the big flash. Yes, bc I live in a foreign land, I've become accustomed to enjoying myself even when I have no idea what's happening! :)
I found it very challenging trying to avoid being hit by the steel aparratus that held them (metal just doesn't seem to "give" much when it hits your head), as well as avoiding hitting the audience (not nice to throw an elbow into grandma's eye), most of whom seemed entranced in the show, as they should have been.
Felt like taking photos of a football game, but instead of being on the sidelines, I was actually on the field, along aunts and nephews...
And stuff's exploding!
