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).

The Houston Zoo is located in Hermann Park. The zoo has a nice aquarium, a great place to take photos in the summer as it is air conditioned : ). Michele Wambaugh and I will be doing several trips to the zoo during the summer. We can shoot in the various buildings that are air conditioned. There are many challenges shooting indoors in the zoo, reflections being the biggest challenge. There are lots of people around and we just work around them by going to other exhibits to shoot where no people are at. It changes fast, people are coming and going all day long. We were able to get the photos that we wanted to in the long run and had a very enjoyable day shooting together.
