Bridge Fall Down
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).

It has been stated that the only reason I will get up before the sun rises is for photography. On the morning of April 18, 2006, I woke up at 5am to be sure to get a front row seat for my tripod at the URI Bay Campus to catch the demolition of the Old Jamestown Bridge.
The bridge was captured with my Nikon D200 on a tripod with my 18-200mm lens. The exposure was 1/750 second at f/5.6. This was shot from the shore of The University of Rhode Island's Bay Campus. Many, many long time Rhode Islanders braved frigid wind chills to be a part of this spectacular event. With the 5 frames per second ability of my Nikon, I have enough photos to show a slideshow of the bridge exploding and crashing down into the water. How awesome is that?!
As for some history of the bridge...This bridge was built in 1940 and was at the time Rhode Island's longest. As a child, I remember going across its harrowing 600 foot long main span (which was grated, allowing you to see the water 135 feet below) when visiting my grandparents who lived in Jamestown.
For more information on the bridge go to: http://www.artinruins.com/arch/rip/jamestown/. This is my favorite website to view urban X in Rhode Island.
