Baby girl & father's wrench who fixes a well water pump - Village near Kallakurichi, Tamilnadu 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).
Collections are a JPG+ feature. You must be a JPG+ member to create new collections and to add photos to collections.

Visited my friend's Mani home village. His mother house lays among the family's sugar cane fields and that day the brothers and in-laws were busy fixing the well's water pump in the hallway to the house as the women prepared lunch.
We all sat and had the south Indian rice and veg sides while the baby was the center of attention.
Later I helped them carry the heavy pump to the well.
They also grow turmeric roots of a special variety that is sold as chicken feed.
Their old home used to be where now a red brick factory stands, as the local red soil is the right type for kiln burning. I posted some photos here earlier of my visit there. The house still stands on a hill that stayed at ground level while all the surroundings were dug out and became building bricks.
