Congratulations to Sonja Quintero of Dallas, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest! Sonja is a four-time winner of our contest. Her last win came in Sept. 2012. She follows last week’s winner, Perry Green.
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.Cindy
Now here’s more from Sonja.
Title of photo: Sunflower Smiles
Equipment: Nikon D800 w/ 50mm Nikkor 1.8 lens
Tell us more about your photo: This picture was taken just south of Waxahachie among all the gorgeous sunflower fields that you can found now along I-35. Instead of simply creating a broad landscape that focused on the hundreds of flowers, I wanted to hone in one flower and let the others fade into the background. I think the image still gives you a sense of the depth of field, but also highlights the uniqueness of the individual flower.
