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).

Don't get confused, I wasn't getting away with what Indian won't do in public among themselves.
Karal and I drove up from his home town to this relatives village and stayed overnight.
His father, S.K Mani, documents this traditional life for many years and since I had a very good camera in local terms he made an effort to gather the village talents for some performances of song, dance and drama play. We recorded it all in video and photos and later made a copy for him.
This gent (the Indian term for a male) took about an hour to crossdress as a lady and make up his face to perfection. Later he and another local actor put a play on the village alley. It was evening time and the street light doubled as a spotlight
