Congratulations to Samarpita Sengupta of Dallas, the winner of the Flickr Photo of the Week contest! Samarpita is a three time winner to our contest; her last victory came in August. She follows last week’s winner, Justin Drabek.

samar(1)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:

Title of photo: Fall

Equipment: Canon T1i with Canon EF-50mm f/1.8 lens

Tell us more about your photo: I have noticed a lot more fall colors in Dallas the past couple of years and I have been meaning to take some shots. I spotted this colorful leaf trapped in a dry tree root as if indicating the dry winter that is to come. A little selective coloring in Lightroom and I had my shot!
