OK, here's an easy way to tell a professional photographer from an amateur. I tried to take basically this same picture in Petra this summer (every tourist does), but in mine, the white facade in the background is nothing but a blur of light between the crevice.

For Indiana Jones buffs, this is where the last scene in original film was shot, with Jones galloping a horse up the steps.


The exhibit includes lots of family snapshots. I don't know that much about Annie Leibovitz (or Susan Sontag for that matter), so wasn't that interested in her family photos for the subject matter, and to my untrained eye they didn't seem any more impressive than anyone else's family photos as a matter of quality. So photos like the one above stood out. (Though I'm guessing she also had a better camera than you, Contessa.)
