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:samar

Title of photo: Three is a Crowd
Equipment: Canon Rebel T1i with 18-55 lens mounted on Fotodiox extension tubes. Canon 420EX bounced off ceiling. Processed in Lightroom4.
Tell us more about your photo: I was in the tail end of my project 365 (a photo a day project for a whole year), and I had always wanted to do a macro shot of dandelion seeds. I found a dandelion, took it home with me, put three seeds on a white sheet and shot ’til I was happy with the result!
