Congratulations to Teresa Rafidi of Dallas, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest! This Teresa’s fourth win in our contest, putting her in a very exclusive group of four-time winners. Teresa follows last week’s winner, Joe Andrews.
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 more from Teresa:
Title of photo: wave swinger 2
Equipment: Nikon D700 with a Nikkor 16mm fisheye F2.8
Tell us more about your photo: I love shooting this ride every year and seeing if I can capture it a little differently each time. I used my fisheye lens and used the platform as my tripod to get as close as possible to the ride. The exposure is about 2 seconds long, and I closed down the aperture to F18 to capture the motion of the ride.
