This morning, g+, we return to the Oregon Aquarium where we have a Pigeon Guillemot bathing. This is a fabulous location for shooting bathing shots as the birds will often swim right in front of you while bathing. Be careful not to get your camera wet though.

Enjoy and share

We share your best Bird shots! On the ground, in the sky, swimming let's see them all!
Introduction

Welcome to the HQSP Birds page. This page is part of the HQSP pyramid. On this page we share your best birds photos. A bird has to be the main subject in the photo. Otherwise you might want to choose a different theme page.


Team:
Philippe Avenel | Suzi Harr | Mark Rayner | Andy Brown 
Owner: Anja Wessels


How to share With our page:

1 add the +HQSP Birds   page to your circles

2 add the curators to your circles:

3 Hash tag #hqspbirds and plustag +HQSP Birds 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:

 #hqspbirds +102573236877435423752 curated by +116711451598001812972 +114511010563829107443 +117470255785898056127 +112634252579159792714


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 managers of the theme pages share the posted photographs on the theme pages.

The managers of the theme pages choose the best photos and share them on the promotion page. This is the next step on the pyramid

The top of the pyramid is +HQSP Winners. The HQSP Winners team choose the very best photos shared on the promotions page and share them on the Winners page.

As icing on the cake is a monthly Circle share. In this circle we place all photographers that are shared on the Winners page. 

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 photo 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 reasonable 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.
