HQSP Post of the day

Today's HQSP Post of the Day is this wonderful work by +Timothy Selvage shared on HQSP Architecture.

Selected by +Andy Brown as the best promoted post in HQSP on 24th July 2015
 
Do you have a favourite historical place in the UK that you have visited or want to see? I've just set up a collection "Open Your Eyes" which focuses on breathing new digital life into historical England. Feel free to follow and share the photos in it :-D.

This photograph was taken as part of a project at Ely cathedral where I was asked to capture the cathedrals spirit with fresh eyes. Interestingly, some of the photos I enjoyed editing with a 'new' look but there were also photos that just looked timeless and beautiful without editing. I can't wait to share them with you.

It's been a busy few months, and a while since I wrote a personal thanks to the many G+ friends who read my posts and engage regularly with me here on G+ (some of you who I met almost 2 years ago when I first started using G+).

What a wonderful time it's been and I look forward to continuing the google journey with you all, new and old friends here on G+.

Timothy

Get added to my ALERT CIRCLE
If you want I can add you to my special ALERT circle. I tend to post erratically and don’t have a scheduled plan so it’s easy for you to miss what I’m posting. HOWEVER, if you want to be notified when I post (usually around 3 times a week) just write ADD ME in the comments below. I’ll then add you to my ALERT circle so you’ll always know when I’m posting :-D

Black-winged stilt
India,Rajkot,19-05-2015.

The black-winged stilt, common stilt, or pied stilt (Himantopus himantopus) is a widely distributed very long-legged wader in the avocet and stilt family (Recurvirostridae). Opinions differ as to whether the birds treated under the scientific name H. himantopus ought to be treated as a single species and if not, how many species to recognize. The scientific name Himantopus comes from the Greek meaning "strap foot" or "thong foot". Most sources today accept 2–4 species.
Adults are 33–36 cm (13–14 in) long. They have long pink legs, a long thin black bill and are blackish above and white below, with a white head and neck with a varying amount of black. Males have a black back, often with greenish gloss. Females' backs have a brown hue, contrasting with the black remiges. In the populations that have the top of the head normally white at least in winter, females tend to have less black on head and neck all year round, while males often have much black, particularly in summer. This difference is not clear-cut, however, and males usually get all-white heads in winter.
Immature birds are grey instead of black and have a markedly sandy hue on the wings, with light feather fringes appearing as a whitish line in flight.[Wikipedia].

How to share
You cannot share directly with the HQSP Post of the Day page. The photos shared at this page are chosen by the HQSP Gold team. You share with a theme page, 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 is 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. One post will then be selected by the daily curator to feature on this page as our post of the day.

✔ 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 sharers and public can then vote to decide 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 GOLD CONTRIBUTOR?

You can become a gold contributor 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 post processing right? Contrast, colour (accuracy and saturation), and brightness.

✔ Is your logo or copyright sign not too dominant

✔ Is your 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 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.

✔ Share a maximum of one photo per category/theme per day.  

✔ 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.

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

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.

✔ Share, promote, get involved and have fun!
