Ambassador of Good Wheel
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).
Collections are a JPG+ feature. You must be a JPG+ member to create new collections and to add photos to collections.

Then, he opened the doors and let me in. He started with the bucket seats ?! Ehh..... As an Aquarius myself I noticed that these buckets can't bear water. Quite flat although there was a curvature only it was more towards the cushy rather then the cozy. Well, some English terms have a different lives in other countries.
Next came the tilt-back / sliding front seats. I was not aware but I believe these are not yet a standard feature on Indian cars.
But the serious surprise was hovering above. A built-in drop-down flat screen with ceiling mounted stereo speakers. By this time I was smiling. This could only rhyme with chitichiti bangbang or my Israeli 1970's English learning TV series 'Scootermen' (where the special task duo was riding a Vespa scooter with a video conference monitor installed where the glove compartment used to be).
The windshield, apparently, is a sort of UV filtering, mirror-like as Pappou described, or another glass treatment I am not yet aware of, but the bottom line is that in winter time there's no condensation on the inner side and visibility is maintained.
Despite the spotless paintjob on the outside, the doorsteps had corrosive 'viefinders' to look through onto the road beneath. “The salty rain in Chennai, the ocean...” Pappou said digging into the car's early days. “Inside it is very quiet” he added.
