The Sea of Prayer
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).

Children wait as Muslims pray during a special prayer to start Eid-al-Adha celebrations at Sunda Kelapa seaport in Jakarta. Indonesian Muslims were celebrating Eid-al-Adha, the Muslim Feast of Sacrifice marking the end of the Hajj pilgrimage in Mecca.
Eid al-Adha (Arabic: عيد الأضحى ‘Īdu l-’Aḍḥā) “Festival of Sacrifice” or “Greater Eid” is an important religious holiday celebrated by Muslims worldwide to commemorate the willingness of Abraham (Ibrahim) to sacrifice his son as an act of obedience to God, but instead was able to sacrifice a ram (by God’s command).Eid is also about spending time with family and friends, sacrifice, and thanksgiving for being able to afford food and housing. In traditional or agrarian settings, each family would sacrifice a domestic animal, such as a sheep, goat, cow, or camel, by slaughter (though some contemporary Muslims do not sacrifice an animal as part of their observance, it is still a very popular tradition, even in Muslim communities in Europe). The meat would then be divided into three equal parts to be distributed to others. The family eats one third, another third is given to other relatives, friends or neighbors, and the other third is given to the poor as a gift.(source:wiki)

"Photography is nothing—it's life that interests me", Henri Cartier-Bresson
The words that seem simple are have so big influence on me. Know Bresson further makes me interested in photojournalism. My love for the photography and then evolved into my love to capture the life. Not just make a 'beautiful' (in photographic) image but also has a deep meaning about life which is very interesting. And consciously or not Bresson always present in every photograph that I created. It's not about the style or photography techniques but about the message will be conveyed to the public. Create images that can speak more.
'Once you miss it, it is gone forever.’
