Glamour in b/w
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).

Last minute change to my b/w challenge entry. Hope this works better as the earlier one did not seem to elicit much excitement, I think it was rather muted.
This was shot last night Sep 28 at a getai (literally "song stage"), which is a community performance on a makeshift stage in residential neighbourhoods.
Getai is marked by exceptionally glamorous - and sometimes outrageous - costumes of the female singers.
It is especially popular during the Chinese 7th month "Festival of the hungry ghosts" when the gates of hell are supposed to be open and temples organize such events to entertain the spirits.
But the 7th month is over and getai continues to be held for various other occasions. Last night's show seems to have been organised by the local residents' committee rather than by a temple group.
