Congratulations to Samarpita Sengupta of Dallas, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest. Samarpita has won our  little contest multiple times. Her last win came in December 2013. She follows last week’s winner  Trey Murphy of Lewisville.

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 Tuesday to Monday, and the Art&Seek staff will pick a winner on Friday 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 Tuesday.

Now here’s more from Samarpita:

Title of photo: Spring Sunshine
Equipment: Canon EOS T1i and 18-55 kit lens with post-processing done in Lightroom 4.

Tell us more about your photo: I have always wanted to visit the Dallas Arboretum during Dallas Blooms each year, and I managed to go this year with my son. After having taken several photos of tulips, we were almost at the exit when I looked up and spotted these gorgeous flowers against the beautiful blue spring sky with a smattering of clouds. And voila! I had my shot of the day!
