Congratulations to Guy Reynolds of Dallas, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest! Guy is a photographer for The Dallas Morning News who previously won our contest in January for this photo of One Arts Plaza. He follows last week’s winner, Neff Conner.
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 Guy:
Title of photo: none
Equipment: Canon EOS 5D, 80-200 lens
Tell us more about your photo: Shot from the 10th floor of the Plaza of the Americas, where there is an ice skating rink and my son Drew was taking lessons. The spectrums are in different areas of the ice throughout the day because there’s several prisms catching the light. We went early the day this was shot, because I’d noticed previously that the best patch of color was off the ice by 9:45. The exposure was made for the highlights to get the spectrum; the problem with that is the ice is rendered as gray rather than a brighter white.
