First day at Bharathi Matriculation Higher Secondary School. 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.

It was the end of July and I was about to leave this little dusty town that had became my home. In the several months I had been living here I had become a family member at Shankar & Ranji home along their two sons as you can read about here http://jpgmag.com/stories/17812 .
So then, actually exactly a year ago, I was invited to join the family "pilgramage" to the first day of school, after the long summer vacation.
Some first graders were refusing to let go of their parents safe hand. Some shed tears. Many just climbed the stone stair case, some bare feet but with flowers in their hair, from the dusty courtyard full of yellow school buses into the green painted classrooms with solid wooden desks.
As Adhi finally sat in his new place by his old friends I captured him between two new/old classmate girls.
So happy new school year, this time around, Adhi. Mindum Sandipom.
