Pearl City Clamp Down - Oysters in a nutshell | 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 legislation banned the trade and such vessels are docked for good.
Invited for the ride by my newly made Tamil friends from this little town, we came to the beach for a sunset. My driving friend invited me for snacks from a street stall and then riding the sand strip we sat on it too. A lot of Tamil jokes & giggles, mostly music to my ears.
An interesting paper that documents the traditional technique: http://www.new.dli.ernet.in/rawdataupload/upload/insa/INSA_1/2000c4e2_205.pdf.
