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).

Captured during a freezing afternoon (yesterday actually) with my workhorse of a camera, Canon 5D mkII with the 100-400mm L series zoom. The light was weak so I used a monopod to keep the camera steady while using a low shutter speed.
For the photogeeks here are the settings:
Camera Canon EOS 5D Mark II
Exposure 0.025 sec (1/40)
Focal Length 400 mm
ISO Speed 1600
The image was then cropped and adjusted in Aperture 3.
The moral of the story? The 0.025 seconds it took to capture this beautiful creature in camera was only possible as result of spending hours in the cold and quite some time in front of the computer.
