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.

At first it seemed the women is naked from her waist down. Then it clears up: the man is practically naked and the woman is dressed with a body color wrap around.
Well... body as far as we know it in the west. Again my eye sees what it wants to see. Her actual body color is as dark as the men's beside her.
In rural India water is carried from the source, may it be a river or a well, in large copper or brass vessels on top of the head (sometimes a few of these in a tower line up). For that reason bathing usually takes place near the source of water, saving the hauling home.
For women it is done with full clothing on, and while dipping they soap the body under the garment.
Anyway.. in the photo they are only building a fence?
