If you would like to participate in the Flickr Photo of the Week contest, all you need to do is upload your photo to to our Flickr group page. It’s fine to submit a photo you took previous to 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 a bit more from Jeff
Title of photo: Yin and Yang
Equipment: iPhone 3GS
Tell us more about your photo: This is a photo of my dogs chilling out in the front yard. Original photo and all editing was done with an iPhone 3GS. I got the high contrast B&W image using Best Camera, cropped it with Liquid Scale, and ran it through multiple vignettes again in Best Camera.
I really enjoy experimenting with effects. When I start thinking about how to convey what I see, I often don’t know what effect will work best until I try out several. After running this one through the double vignette, its meaning seemed suddenly so obvious.
