On our recent trip to Mexico our first stop was Mexico City. This image is looking up at the ceiling of Palacio de Bella Artes or in English the Palace of Fine Arts which is Mexico City's opera house. It was completed in 1934 and it was the most impressive building we saw there. The interior is art deco and has several important murals by Diego Rivera and other famous Mexican Muralists. If you ever have a chance to visit Mexico City this building is a "must see".

So Many Colors ~ This was one of the only photos I took of the male Wood Duck that really showed off all of the colors including the vibrant wing accents. He had just finished shaking out and the angle he was facing me was just so that all the head, chest and body colors were showing. i took hundreds of photos of these ducks on this morning and yet most of them don't show the large patch of blue and purple on the wing. Taken at Valley Green Inn at Wissahickon Valley Park near Philadelphia, PA. ~ 3/24/15 - ¹⁄₈₀₀ sec at f/5.0 - ISO1800 at 500 mm ~ using a 500 mm f/4 on a Nikon D4S ~ Please view large and feel free to share. #birds   #birdphotos   #birdsgallery   #birds4all   #hqspbirds   #wildlife   #wildlifephotos   #nature   #naturephotos   #woodduck   #duck

Die fürchterlichste Nacht.      (1/3)

Kennst du die Nacht, die auf die Erde sinkt
Bei hohlem Wind und schwerem Regenfall,
Die Nacht, in der kein Stern vom Himmel blinkt,
Dein Aug durchdringt des Wetters dichten Wall?
So finster diese Nacht, sie hat doch einen Morgen
O lege Dich zur Ruhe, und schlafe ohne Sorgen!

Karl May

The Älvsborg Bridge

The Älvsborg Bridge is a suspension bridge over Göta älv in Gothenburg, Sweden, which connects the north and the south part of the city. It's built in 1966 and is almost 1000 meters long.
Me and my friend drove to the shore when it began to rain so i took this with my jacket as shelter over the camera, it went well :)

The community: HQSP Community

Owner: Anja Wessels


How to share
You cannot share directly with the HQSP Promotion page. The photos shared at this page are chosen by the managers of the theme pages. You share with a theme, we do the rest.


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.
