:[lavender]:


Lay me down in lavender
let the earth become my bed,
this fragrant field shall
my body, shield,
softness surrounding, my fair head.
Lay me down in meadows, bright
steal an innocent’s heart away
then, when I am old, as
my stories told, I’ll look
back on this fine day.
Lay me down, my soul to rest
in your tender arms
I’ll breathe my last,
a wreathe of scented lavender
shall grace my hair,
with sweet memories of our
love, gone past.

by Marc Voynet

Ol Pejeta Conservancy, wilderness area. One of the best reasons to go to a private conservancy, other than supporting their work, there are very few vehicles. This is when you can focus on high quality images. We came across these mating lions and had them all to ourselves the entire afternoon. This was still a challenging shot, with very low light, and would not have been possible without our very experienced driver.  We waited at a distance, ready, and holding on tight. The moment the male mounted the female, our driver would start the engine, race around the parameter, put us in direct position, brake hard, and turn of the motor. We had seconds to get up our lens and shoot. Needless to say it was an exciting afternoon! 

Captured while leading a private safari. 

Canon 1DX, SO 2000, F8, 1/1250 focal length 500,

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.
