Congratulations to Nikolas Smith of Duncanville, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest. Nik is a first-time winner of our little contest. He follows last week’s winner, Elizabeth Buchanan of Richardson.
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 Nik.
Title of photo: “Martini”
Equipment: Olympus OM-D E-M10. Shutter speed 1/100 sec, f/6.3, 19mm, ISO 250
Tell us more about your photo: This is just a standard martini glass, but I think the slight pinch and curve where the stem meets the bowl of the glass intrigued me the most. As the dappled light bent around the glass through our blinds, the refraction made for an implied meeting in the middle. The color I felt added a timeless tone to something so ordinary.
