Colorful women & uniformed girls wait for a rescue bus. 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).

Indian rural buses are essentially trucks converted to passenger carriers. They have to be to survive the collection of pot holes named: Indian country roads, but sometimes even that is not enough and it boils to a breakdown.
It was a hot day in the southern most town of the southern most state, Tamil Nadu.
While waiting, burning and sweating some went for the bushes, maybe to pee, maybe to visit relatives in the neighborhood beyond or maybe went home by foot. Others improvised sun shades from shopping bags, hanckerchiefs, towels, etc.
Looking at the assortment of vehicles passing by we could now envy these stuffed up in an autorickshaw loaded to and over the top or a family of 4 squeezed together on a moped.
