Welcome to the Capture Jersey Shore, folks! We certainly hope you enjoy your time here. Capture Jersey Shore is all about finding the best photos of the Jersey Shore and we're asking for your help. If you're a photographer, upload your photos and see how they measure up. Top-rated photos and editors' picks will be featured in digital publications called showcases and the best of the best will be published in our upcoming book, The Real Jersey Shore! If you're not a photographer, we could use your help too! Vote for photos to shape the best of the Jersey Shore. Your photos. Your votes. The best of the Jersey Shore, by you!

As you poke around the site, you'll note we have a bunch of features to enrich the experience. Be sure to check out the how it works page for a full rundown on how to use the site. There are a few features we'd like to draw your attention to:

On any photo page, enter an email address in the email box or click the the tweet, like or send buttons to share photos with your friends and family. Help spread the word about Capture Jersey Shore! Invite your friends and family to submit their photos and vote for the best of the Jersey Shore.

Photo Of The Day by James LoeschChallenges: To help focus submissions into particular themes, we'll run challenges from time to time. Challenges are a great way to get everyone out there taking pictures of the same types of things, then seeing how everyone's photos rank. It's fun! Plus, we'll have some prizes to give away for challenge winners. Stay tuned for challenge announcements.

Currently Voting: You can lock your voting flow to photos from a particular photographer, a certain category, challenge photos or photos from a specific place. To change what you're currently voting for, click the Currently Icon icon wherever it appears. Also, pay close attention to the currently bar.

Follow Users: We've done a lot to add to the user interactivity of the site. Take a peek at your dashboard (logged in) and you should get an idea of our efforts to encourage users to interact with one another. One way to interact with photographers you love is to follow them. Any time they submit a new photo or love others' photos you'll see it right on your dashboard. It's a great way to explore photos of the Jersey Shore.

We hope you find these features useful. As always, please contact us if you have any questions. Now... fire up your cameras and get out there and capture the Jersey Shore!
