Congratulations to Randal Dean of Dallas, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest! Randal’s won our little contest many times, most recently for this artful shot of Junior Brown. This time, he stayed up late to capture last week’s lunar eclipse. He follows last week’s mystery winner.
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 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 Randal:
Title of photo: Totality 12/21/2010
Equipment: Olympus PEN E-PL1 with the 14-42 kit lens, shooting through a Celestron C8 telescope
Tell us more about your photo: I used a 26mm eyepiece and an f/6.3 focal reducer on the scope. Taken at mid-totality, around 2:15 on the morning of the 21st.
