'Ghosts' at Ngee Ann
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 Ngee Ann City, one of Singapore's most up-scale (and previously one of the biggest) shopping malls along the Orchard Road tourist belt.
The reflections come from the adjacent building, Wisma Atria.
If the reflections look ghostly, well, Ngee Ann was built on what used to be a burial ground.
The plot of prime land actually has an interesting history - of disputes and failed attempts by various parties to acquire it for development. And for a long time, it was a massive "green lung" - just an open grass patch - in the prime shopping district.
You can read more about it on Wikipedia's entry on Ngee Ann City.
Very often, photographers who take night images look for water reflections. Shiny marble walls, too, can reflect light quite wonderfully.
