Congratulations to Greg Westfall of Fort Worth, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest! Greg’s won our little contest twice before with his color-saturated photos of wide-open spaces. You can see those photos here and here. He follows last week’s winner, Shri.
If you would like to participate in the Flickr Photo of the Week contest, all you need to do is upload your photo to to our Flickr group page. It’s fine to submit a photo you took previous to the current week, but we are hoping that the contest will inspire you to go out and shoot something fantastic this week to share with Art&Seek users. If the picture you take involves a facet of the arts, even better. The contest week will run from Monday to Sunday, and the Art&Seek staff will pick a winner on Monday afternoon. We’ll notify the winner through FlickrMail (so be sure to check those inboxes) and ask you to fill out a short survey to tell us a little more about yourself and the photo you took. We’ll post the winners’ photo on Wednesday.
Now here’s a bit more from Greg:
Title of Photo: wind river valley 2
Equipment: Canon 1DsMkII, EOS 14mm f/2.8L II, sturdy tripod; shot at f/10 @100 ISO
Tell us more about your photo: This is a three-image HDR. The three images were shot at -2EV, 0EV and +2EV. This was taken on a ranch outside of Dubois, Wyoming at an elevation of about 7,200 feet during a time when storms were passing through. The wind was crazy. I used Photomatix Pro for tonemapping and then did some fairly extensive work in Photoshop CS3, mainly with levels and curves. This area is just breathtakingly beautiful. If you look closely about 2/3rds down from the top and toward the right, you can see the Wind River coursing through a gorge.
