Flickr Photo of the Week

by Jerome Weeks 2 May 2012 9:12 AM

A way-cool custom ’38 Chevy caught Sam Wilson’s eye — and his photo is our Flickr Photo of the Week winner!


Congratulations to Sam Wilson of Richardson, the winner of this week’s Flickr Photo of the Week contest! This is Sam’s first win. He follows last week’s winner, Misti Boe.

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.

And now, here’s Sam:

Name: Sam Wilson
Town: Richardson, Texas
Title of photo: “Hot Rod”
Equipment used: Pentax K-7 camera body with an 18-55 mm lens, on a tripod
Anything else you want to tell us: The car was an entry in the 5th Annual Car Show at The Heights:, on April 21, 2012. I shot five exposures at a separation of 8 stops from top to bottom, and then blended them and did tone-mapping with Photomatrix. The car is a 1938 Chevy Cabriolet convertible and belongs to Joan Nener.
