Soorya International Film festival, Mavelikara 2011 - My cotton bag in Loma Linda, California 2013
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).

Remember "My friend went abroad and all I got was this lousy t-shirt"?
Well, this crumbled cotton bag rolls around in my van for the past few days, as it does every time I reorganize my clothing. But it's not lousy despite it looks, because no friend had brought me that as a souvenir. It was given to me while there, at Mavelikara, a rural town & home to Kerala famous art university.
For a couple of days, as it says - in September 2011, I was the only foreigner in the audience (even was asked to write my impressions for the festivals newspaper :)
This morning I thought to givew it a shot (literally) and here's the result. Thursday morning, hanging on my van's door in a Loma Linda parking lot, California.
Dedicated with love to all my friends in Mavelikara (and there are many through my 3 weeks stay). Especially to Sangeeth Thali a friend from Mavelikara who is now doing as a Photographer at Kochi-Muziris Biennale 2012 and was my trigger for taking this photo today.
