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 Lyn:
City of residence: Dallas
Title of work: Planet Longhorn
Tell us more about your photo: It’s a 360 pano with stereographic projection, or more commonly known as a Little Planet, which is actually a 300×300 stereo projection. These are done in programs like Hugin, PTGui, or Flexlfy, and the like. In this case, it’s comprised of 172 images (I think, if I remember correctly) in brackets of 5 for the HDRI [high dynamic range imaging].
