Duty At Dawn
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).

Fisher men of a village called Mandarmani in India are busy at dawn preparing their fishing net before going out to the sea for their catch. Though I had no live LCD, I tried my best to take a low angle shot as I wanted to show them - standing above the land and touching the sky - in order to show the significance of their job and tradition. By making each of them a silhouttee I have protected their identity and tired to capture the magnificient sky that the Lord shows them before they leave for the sea. It seemed that the beauty was a blessing from the Divine to them. The sky seemed to be protecing them by keeping away bad weather. For me, these humble workers are the fuel of the human civilisation.
