Congratulations to Samarpita Sengupta of Dallas, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest! Samarpita previously won our contest in October for her shot from the Dallas Arboretum. She follows last week’s winner, Misti Boe.
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 Samarpita:
Title of photo: Harnessing Solar power
Equipment: Canon EOS Rebel T1i with the 18-55 kit lens. Processed with Lightroom 4.
Tell us more about your photo: I love sunflares, and I have been looking for chances to shoot one for a while. Although I have tried several times, I haven’t been happy with them. I found my perfect opportunity when I took my pup for a walk and playtime at Central Christian dog park behind the Central Christian Church of Dallas. The sun peeking behind the church tower seemed perfect for a flare. Converting to monochrome was a choice I made to make the flare stand out even more.
