Q: How do I buy more Spotlights? I'm new to the site, and I've actually already bought some, but I've forgotten how to do it!

Took this shot during an Annual Boat Race (Vallam Kali) held near Alappuzha, Kerala, India. The main attraction of the race is the Snake Boat (Chundan Vallam) (in picture) – a 120 foot long boat that moves along the water like a snake (hence the name). The boat is manned by four helmsmen, 25 cheerers / singers and 100 – 125 oarsmen who row in unison to the fast rhythm of the boatmen’s song. The splash and spray in the image gives a sense of motion and fervent activity.
