The vermilion Lungi seller & friend | 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.

I stopped to check the Lungi's hanging outside his store, and like sometimes happens in India, found a new friend.
What a man. Warm soft hand shake and hart & eyes to follow.
I just looked at him in the photo and melted, sinking into these eyes and calm face, just relaxed and gazing.
Eventually I bought a vermilion cotton lungi with a margins of a woven yellow silky ribbon and had it made into a fishermen pant two months later by Ajai tailor in Maharshtra.
Today, while chanting Kirtan at a Yoga studio here in California his town's market street, sops and sellers came up my mind. I can't remember his name, but can feel him. Now the least I can do is have him here.
