Flickr Photo of the Week

Congratulations to Ian Aberle of Allen, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest!


Congratulations to Ian Aberle of Allen, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest! You might remember Ian as he was the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Month for March. He follows last week’s winner, Matt Harvey.

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 more from Ian:

Title of photo: Tower in the Clouds
Equipment used: Three photos were captured with a Canon EOS 7D. The photos were then merged and tonemapped in Photomatix Pro, and the resulting photo was processed in Adobe Lightroom to increase clarity and crop.
Tell us more about your photo: After enjoying some cupcakes for my daughter’s birthday from Crave Cupcakes in Houston, my wife noticed the Cameron building across 610. I quickly pulled over and took out my camera to fire off a couple of shots. I guess I was a little too jacked up on sugar, cause my hands were not very stable. My wife likes the photo, so I’m happy.
