Baltimore [Population 2,668,000] - Redux
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).

The city of Baltimore has the highest crime rate of any major metropolitan area in the country. When seen from the air, it becomes apparent (to some) where the root of this problem lies. With every new layer of asphalt, with every new apartment complex and every new billboard, there is simply more clutter upon preexisting clutter. Gentrification and what the Germans liked to call "Stadterneuerung" are what's at work here, but have they really accomplished anything or have they just made things worse?
Living in such a place, it's hard to imagine having much hope for a happy "well-adjusted" life. Maybe all it takes is a change of scenery.
Notes: Shot using an improvised tilt-shift lens. Quite happy with the result, if I do say so myself.
