Title:  Ode to +Ken Fowkes .  In the wonderful Blur and Unsharp Photography mentorship I just completed, I was fortunate to have amazing travelers making the journey with me.  Among them was Ken, who consistently dazzled with his explorations into what was possible.

His Sunflower pictures were so lovely - had such dignity, beauty and grace that I felt compelled (inspired isn't a strong enough word) to emulate and master the technique Ken used.

This is my twist and zoom - a small amount of intentional camera movement - that puts my own style to the technique.  It's one of the amazing things about photography.  Others inspire us to seek our own visions.

Tagline
We share your best Flower shots! In a vase, in a garden, in the wild, where ever you can find it.
Introduction

Welcome to the HQSP Flowers page. This page is part of the HQSP pyramid. On this page we share your best flower photos. A flower has to be the main subject in the photo. 

  • We don’t share flowerfields here either, you might want to share those with #hqsplandscape | +HQSP Landscape
  • We don't share photos that show a close-up/macro of only a part of the flower, you might want to share those with #hqspmacro | +HQSP Macro 


Team:
Melania Pierce | Kanlaya Chungsangornpornsuk | Iva Pas | Wayne Lu | kaatje jansen

Owner: Anja Wessels

How to share With our page:

1 add the +HQSP Flowers page to your circles

2 add the curators to your circles: Melania Pierce | Kanlaya Chungsangornpornsuk | Iva Pas | Wayne Lu | kaatje jansen

3 Hash tag #hqspflowers and plustag  in your post. Our curators appreciate being tagged in your posts as well.

4 To make sharing even easier, you can just copy and paste the following:

#hqspflowers +102601515420286314808 curated by +105883892692776728541 +113809386181419471333 +117633206937271900880 +117371228393907747239 +103419852001929985760

HOW DOES THE HQSP SYSTEM WORK?

There are two ways to participate in the HQSP system.

1. By sharing in the HQSP Community

2. By sharing with the hash tag of a HQSP theme page

In this way you end up at the base of the HQSP pyramid. 


THE PYRAMID

The pyramid has 5 levels:

✔ The base is formed by you, the photographer. You post your photo either by posting your photo with a hash tag of a theme page, or by posting a photo in the HQSP Community. You can also reshare a post you posted public in the community.

✔ Level two are the theme pages. Your photo is shared on the theme page if it is good enough and fits the theme. The theme pages have a group of managers who curate and pick the photos.

✔ Level three is HQSP Promotions. The managers of the theme pages select the best photos shared on the theme pages and take them up to level three.

✔ Level four is HQSP Gold. The HQSP Gold team pics the best form HQSP Promotion on a daily basis. The photographers who make it this far are really good and are shared in the monthly Winners Circle.

✔ Level five is HQSP Weekly Winner. Every week there are three winners. The HQSP team nominates 20 photos from HQSP Gold for the vote. The public decides on this website who has shared the best photo of the week. The winners are displayed on the website, in the HQSP Community and on several HQSP pages.

 

HOW DO YOU BECOME A WINNER?

You can become a winner if you keep the next points in mind when you take a photo:

✔ Is the subject interesting? Almost anything can become interesting by choosing the right perspective, composition and framing.

✔ Playing with DOF, exposure and light/shadow is elementary.

✔ Is it program shooting or manual settings?

✔ Is the photo sharp where it is meant to be sharp?

✔ Is the overall image appealing?

✔ Is the (after) processing right? Contrast, color (accuracy and saturation), and brightness.

✔ Is my logo or copyright sign not too dominant

✔ Is my photo my not in violation of the HQSP rules  


HQSP RULES

✔ We cannot share your posts if you do not circle us.  This is very important. 

✔ Please do not tag our names or page names in your image. A tagged image will be ignored.

✔ Please do not share albums, share only single images, albums will be ignored.

✔ Please keep your watermarks reasonably sized and positioned.

✔ Please do not share Gif’s, for example the result of Auto Awesome by Google. So no moving photos.

✔ Please do not share photos with text in any form other than logos and copyright a signs. We do not support messages in foreign languages without knowing what we share, that is why we don’t share any messages at all.

✔ Above all, share your own work with us, have fun and interact with us.

✔ Share only your best shots with our pages, only one post per day and theme!  

✔ HQSP can only share photos shared by a person, a photographer. It can be via page, but the name of the photographer should be in the name of the page. We don't share photos posted by accounts that are: a company, a website, a club, etc.

Note! HQSP reserves the right to choose which photos are shared.


RULES FOR HQSP VOTE:

✔ A photographer cannot vote for their own photo

✔ A photographer cannot vote with other accounts/pages he or she owns/curates

✔ A photographer should not call others to vote for his photo alone. Inviting people to vote in general, is OK.
