Congratulations to Michael Rumsey of Richardson, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest. Michael is a first time winner of our contest. He follows last week’s winner Bryan Varner of Midlothian.
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 Tuesday to Monday, and the Art&Seek staff will pick a winner on Friday 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 Tuesday.
Now here’s more from Michael.
Title of photo: Pelicans Keeping Warm
Equipment: Canon 50D and Tamron 200-400mm f/5.6 LD with a Tamron 1.4X multiplier
Tell us more about your photo: It was a gloomy, cold, Friday afternoon when I absolutely HAD to test a used lens I’d received the night before. I was crestfallen that the weather was so uncooperative…the birds weren’t flying…the lighting was dull and flat…Then I noticed the way the pelicans were huddled together for warmth, and the wonderful texture of the white feathers offsetting the yellow of the area around the eyes. I spent the rest of my time there working to capture this image.
