From a couple days ago when I got the chance to spend an hour in the AM on the beach. Always fun watching the Oystercatchers running in the wave. :-)

Outcast

Chilly sunrise in Langley in Buckinghamshire... Although it's not a part of Greater London area (being just outside M25) it's so close to western borders of the city that I have always considered this an integral part of "London countryside". But if you prefer more rush, more restaurants and more theatres, the buzzing tourist hotspot, Piccadilly Circus in West End, is only 20 miles away from here...

Monochrome Monday

One of my favorite recent images. Figured I should formally post it since I've got it set for my cover photo. lol

One of those fun times when you happen on such a nice reflection and there isn't enough wind to take it away before you can get setup. This is from a five image bracket to help bring out the entire dynamic range. What I actually enjoy the most in this one is the look of the grass in the water showing through the cloud reflection.

Lonely
“I had nothing to contribute. I played no part. I was on the edge.
Different.
Alone.
Everything around me, grey.
It was the same old feeling, back again.
I was in the middle of the group but I might as well have been a million miles away from these people.”
― Tim Relf, Stag

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!
