Gopi & family. On Gandhi road to a morning wedding. 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).

The green banana leaf is still vibrant in my mind. That was the design of the marriage invitation Gopi gave me a week earlier.
My first Tamil wedding. It started so early in the morning I skipped all my usual Yoga etc... Just jumped into the best clothes I could find in my backpack and streamed into the dawn Gandhi road. The shops were still closed.
When I heard a call, I turned around to see the whole Gopi family in the very best of Sarees and Gopi himself showing off his sateen collar shirt.
Why this photo uploaded today?
An hour ago, my Tamil friend stopped by my table in the Los Angeles coffee shop and after talking about vacation days he whispered: "I'm going back to India for a month". "A month" I asked, "what will you...", I'm getting married" he said before I could complete my sentence.
