Baby's sari-hammock, the Indian ceiling cradle - Tamil Nadu, 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.

A Sari can make a great baby hammock: its long enough to be mounted from the ceiling, light and breezy for the mid summer afternoon rest and non expensive. Oh.... and colorful as a Tiffany lamp when the sunlight shoots through it.
... and then there's the swing plus the safety from all insects, rodents or reptiles.
Here, in a village in Tamil Nadu we came for the biggest cross-dresser / Lady-boys festival. It's actually an ancient Hindu event guarded by a local temple god. The many guests staying at the relatives home, we slept outside on a mat by the two cows. A very cozy and heart warming experience, sharing a bed with the rest of the guests.
