Congratulations to Guy Reynolds of Dallas, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest! Guy’s a frequent participant in our contest, he last won in September for this emotional shot at a high school basketball game. He follows last week’s winner, Nick Murray.
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.
Now, here’s more from Guy:
Title of photo: Downtown Zoom
Tell us more about your photo: I shot the zoom blur of part of the skyline from a top floor balcony in One Arts Plaza, where I was shooting an overall view of the Arts District when it was nearing completion. F!D Luxe needed a set of photos of the Wyly and Winspear during construction for a David Dillon piece (the last I got to work with him on) for the magazine. I’m fortunate to know someone who lives in One Arts so I had the access I needed to make this shot. The image was made by zooming the lens during a 5-second time exposure on a tripod, a pretty simple technique.
