Bucket & jug bath by the bore well | Tamil Nadu hills village photo, 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.

Summer time and the water is easy. But you still have to pump it up! That's how the bore well works.
I was given a bucket and jug at the hill village dhaba where I was invited to spend the night and given the general direction of this public shower/laundry spot... and I wasn't the only one. On the road I came across women, girls and boys carrying full jugs. Either water pumped or clothing.
One women, a teacher or principal at a regional school was even chatty as we walked along the quiet single lane road.
At the well I met two boys, looked like brothers with a load of garments for soaking.
The bath was soooo refreshing, well let the photo speak for itself :)
