Flickr Photo Of The Week

by Therese Powell 22 Mar 2016 8:28 AM

Congratulations to Robin Washburn of Dallas, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest.



Congratulations to Robin Washburn of Dallas, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest. This is the second time Robin-Jean has grabbed the Flickr Gold in our little contest. Her first win came back in September with an photo of a State Fair icon. She follows last week’s winner Guy Dilger of Dallas.

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.

Title of photo: “Boats at Dock”

Equipment: Nikon D750 and AF-S Nikkor 28-300mm 1:3.5-5.6 G

Tell us more about your photo: I’ve been trying to make something nice of this scene for quite some time.  Here I carefully framed the image with the architectural lines.  In post-process I converted to monochrome and increased contrast and brightness ever so slightly, so the boats are slightly blown out and the architectural lines pop.
