Congratulations to Anthony Najera of Denton, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest! This is Anthony’s first victory in our contest. He follows our previous week’s winner, Guy Reynolds.

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 Anthony:

Title of photo: Trails
Equipment: Canon 7D, Canon 50mm f/1.8, Canon 270EX II Speedlite. Also some silly puddy, black poster board and dozens of matches.
Tell us more about your photo:Shooting this kind of photo was really fun for me. When you break it down, it’s a pretty simple shoot but extremely rewarding. What I enjoy most about this photo is that the trails of smoke lead the eye from one quadrant to another and eventually out of the photo.
