Congratulations to Claudio Branch of Arlington, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest! Claudio won our little contest way back in October 2010. He follows our previous week’s winner, Brian Hamm.

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 Claudio:
Title of photo: the thrill of not caring anymore
Equipment: Nikon D7000
Tell us more about your photo:The photo is a long-exposure night shot and was shot in Fort Worth. I shoot RAW and then use Photoshop with the Nik Tools plug-in for post-processing work. The driving philosophy behind the image and title is taking creative risks and the joy of artistic exploration.
