Female auto-rickshaw driver with a pretty & warm smile - Kerala, 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.

The day I said 'veendum kanam' to Binoy she stopped by the Banian tree. The first auto-rickshaw driver girl I've seen and then, with that bright smile.
Binoy is a dancer. He performs with his group and also teaches traditional dance to kids at his town.
I met Binoy at his art college down south Kerala. Later he invited me to stay at his family home. A couple of weeks later, by train, I arrived at his native place in the north of the state.
My stay with him and his warm family is one of these experiences that are so emotionally rich and touching that it's just overwhelming to put down in writing.
So for now, here's just a bright smile from his neighborhood...
