Takla - टकला | Haircut at an Indian barber shop. Jodhpur, Rajasthan India
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).

Some people have their hair blowing away in the wind, like most Indian. But I am a Takla / टकला. A baldy.
Though I lack the flair I didn't skip the barbershop.
At Rupees 25 ( ~ 50 ¢ ) you get to relax on an ergonomic seat, have a head and shoulder massage, be traditionally groomed with a scissors and comb dance ( I compensated the lack of sculpt growth with my facial one, to extend the pleasure) and finally a blossomy shower of herbal navratna ( नवरत्न ), the Ayurvedic "eau de Cologne".
Like the marvelously harmonic "chaotic" traffic, Indian barbershop can be as tight as a corridor. Customers would be walking in and out, fully aware of passing within inches from the barber's elbow of the hand that holds the blade against a client's face or neck.
