The Cruel World - Ben Thanh Markets, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
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).

There are many things we are blind to when we travel, and that's understandable. When you take a vacation, your mind is set on seeing pretty sights and quaint cultures, most of the time we neglect to see what lies beyond the touristy shops.
Ho Chi Minh City might be one of the most fastest growing economies, it even seems like it is growing so fast that it might be leaving some people behind. These are countries that don't have a proper social system installed yet.
This man is a beggar who sits outside the Ben Thanh Markets, one of the busiest tourist spots in HCMC, day in, day out. He is often shunned by both locals and tourists alike. And yet, we should still remember that he is part of depicting that city.
