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).

Many wish-knots adorn the marble Jalis facing the grave at the Durgah (Tomb) of Muslim Sufi saint Salim Chishti. It is believed by people of many faiths in India that any wish made at this Durgah comes true. The ritual is to tie a threat while making a wish and once the wish comes true, then the believers make a pilgrimage back to this place, untie the wish-knots and pray at the Durgah and give charity to the poor people that are supported by the Durgah. This Durgah gained prominence when the Mughal King Akbar prayed here in the late 1500's for a male heir to the throne. When his wish was granted, Akbar named his son after the Sufi saint. Since then many childless women come here to pray on bended knees for a family heir and tie the wish-knots.
