Flickr Photo of the Week

Congratulations to William Christie of Oak Cliff, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest!


Congratulations to William Christie of Oak Cliff, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest! This is William’s first victory in our contest. He follows our previous week’s winner, Wide Eyed and Hopeful.

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 our William:
Title of photo: Two Towers
Equipment: 200mm on tripod @ f/7.1, 1/80, ISO 100
Tell us more about your photo: I noticed this angle on one of my many bike rides/walks around the downtown Dallas area. Returning with the camera, I found the challenge was getting off of the ground level to a higher vantage point so that the framing I desired for the photograph remained fairly flat and vertical convergence was kept to a minimum. With the sun further to the south in the winter, the north face of the Renaissance Tower was in full shade while the mid-morning light brightly illuminated Fountain Place. The result, of course, was a clear, bright reflection that made for an easy exposure, and a photograph I enjoy very much. Thanks for choosing this for the Flickr Photo of the Week. I’m a big fan of Art & Seek and KERA in general. You guys rock!
