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.
Title of photo: Moon Rise at WRL (White Rock Lake)
Equipment: Nikon D300s with Tamron 70-300mm VC lens
Tell us more about your photo: White Rock Lake is my favorite place to photo, run and relax (it’s just so close to my home). On this hot summer evening, I went out to the lake side to shoot some moon closeups, as it was a full moon night. I shot two pictures, a moon closeup at 300mm with fast shutter speed and narrow aperture to get details of the moon surface. The second picture was a landscape photo of the lake and part of the sky with long exposure settings. Then I used the Image Overlay menu settings in the camera to blend these. I was very happy with the results.
