Photo Challenge: Nature Conquers Man
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).

I spent from 10 February to 25 February 2006 working for Habitat for Humanity building homes in Covington, LA. On 19 February the church group I was with headed into New Orleans to meet up with the other group from our church that had come down to work in Pearlington, MS. The Rev. Jean Marie Peacock took us on a tour of the devastation that started at her church, the Lakeview Presbyterian, which had been gutted as a result of the 17th Street Canal Levee break. She said a third of her congregation had left and would not be back, a third had left and hoped to be back, and a third had stayed. Dale Davis, a member of Rev. Jean’s flock, showed us what was left of her home. Our makeshift caravan then traveled east, past the construction workers tents in City Park, to the site of the London Street Canal Levee break. From there we headed south into the devastated Lower 9th Ward and then west into the French Quarter where she left us.
I took this photo at the site of the London Street Canal Levee break with a Wal-Mart throw away camera.
