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).

- Flower bouquet auto rikshaw to district police, Maharashtra, India -
I enjoyed the long bus ride in countryside villages. An oddity was the absence of a bus stop in Oros, the government district headquarters. You need to take a 10 minute auto rickshaw ride from the dusty junction step off the bus.
Waiting for a 'share-ride' three-wheeler to show up, I sat and had a bidi at the roadside kiosk. My first worthwhile experience that day was to see for the first time how a bidi is made. I took the chance and video recorded a tutorial by Vaman, the hole-in-the-box shopkeeper/owner.
The by-sitters tried to fix me up with a special ride that costs 30 Rupees), but I insisted on waiting for a reduced price shared ride and pointed to an older local lady that was standing waiting across the street. Eventually a rickshaw driver sitting unemployed for the past 15 minutes agreed to take me and the lady if I pay 20 Rupees. Ok, let me treat this lady to the comfort of a rickshaw duo.
The flowery rickshaw crawled along the uphill burning noon time road. The gate to the office complex looked OK. Many local government buildings are lined with mold and peeling/fading paint that make them look deserted.
