Congratulations to Devin Rodgers of Arlington, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest! Devin is a first time winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest. He follows last week’s winner, Mike Fiddleman.
If you would like to participate in the Flickr Photo of the Week contest, all you need to do is upload your photo to our Flickr group page. It’s fine to submit a photo you took earlier than 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 Tuesday to Monday, and the Art&Seek staff will pick a winner on Friday 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 Tuesday.
Title of photo: Underneath the Stockyards
Equipment: Canon EOS 7D, Canon EF 24mm f/1.4, using a Tiffen Black Pro-Mist diffusion filter
Tell us more about your photo: I decided to walk the Fort Worth Stockyards one October evening and try taking some pictures, and I had never realized before that one could actually casually walk underneath the Stockyards. The lighting struck me as quite moody and a perfect spot to test my new diffusion filter. This shot was captured handheld and with my lens’ aperture pretty much wide open.
