Both Sides of Royal Street
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).

Shiny things mesmerize me, like jewelry and reflections and the sun. On this sunny day, I stared into an antique jewelry shop window on Royal street with my trusty digital camera dangling on a strap around my neck. Then suddenly, right before beginning to drool idiotically, I saw the reflections in reflections. I lifted my camera to capture the magical moment. It was like shining a mirror into a mirror and trying to preserve this moment without putting myself into the image. I hate when I later study a picture only to find myself with my camera held up in some distant part of the reflection. But, this day was made for reflections and introspections. Framing both sides of Royal Street in one shot was like taking in the entire ambiance of shopping in the French Quarter on a sunny Saturday afternoon.
