Vera's Last Beer
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).

This is a scene post Katrina of remains of the well known and loved Vera's seafood restaurant on Lakeshore Dr. in Slidell, LA. It was a pretty big building built on pilings on Lake Pontchartrain where customers could sit at tables and see sail boats pass, boats with fisherman, and sunsets in the evening. The place was always packed, and patrons were willing to wait to be seated. Katrina's storm surge came on August 29, 2005 and picked up the entire restaurant like a match box and dropped it on the shore. All that remained were the pilings, pieces of broken wood, bricks, and that ONE empty bottle of BEER on the heap of ruins. Vera's has since reopened but in a location 6 miles away from the lakefront. The seafood is just as good as it used to be, but the ambiance of surrounding water activities and sunsets are lost. Mother Nature can be a beauty AND a b**ch.
