Flickr Photo Of The Week

Congratulations to Elizabeth Buchanan of Richardson Texas, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest.



Congratulations to Elizabeth Buchanan of Richardson, Texas, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest. This is the second time Elizabeth has won the Flickr contest. Her last win came back in September. She follows last week’s winner, Jorge Fernandez of Fort Collins, Colorado.

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.

mo-moNow, here’s more from Elizabeth.

Title of photo: ‘Water Abstract’

Equipment: Canon 7D, Tamron 70-200 mm f/2.8 Lens

Tell us more about your photo: I saw these lovely sycamore leaves afloat in one of the ponds at the Dallas Arboretum. There is a small waterfall at one end of this pond which keeps the water swirling. The surrounding trees gave the water a dappled appearance and the sunlight on the leaves provided a great point of focus. The goldfish provided orange color underneath. I believe I’m getting more adventurous with my photography and the Adobe Light Room and Creative Cloud programs!
