Congratulations to Lyn Caudle of Lancaster, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest! Lyn’s been on quite a roll of late – he last won our contest in October for a photo of the Margret Hunt Hill Bridge. He follows last week’s winner, Li Fan.
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:
Title of photo: Dallas Decorates 05
Equipment: Nikon D700 Nikon 14-24mm f2.8
Tell us more about your photo: I shot some previous images of Dallas decorations a day or so before this one, and I found that I didn’t think the shots were wide enough. I wanted to be able to see almost an entire intersection at once, or in this case, the play tubes at Neiman’s. I went to Dallas Camera and rented a lens from them and went back to shoot what I felt was a better composition and what I kinda had in mind in the first place. This is the result.
