Dining With A View
 
The Critique:
 
Windows can tell stories and they also can share with their neighbors.  This couple, dining above street level, had no idea that neighboring buildings were dancing on the surface mere inches from them.  It’s all about perspective and the dance wasn’t for them – it was for me and anyone else with the right perspective that cared to visually explore their surroundings.
 
Nice focus enhances the multi layer look that reflections provide.  Wonderful frames within frames isolate and celebrate shape and humans.  The depth behind the diners – taking my eye further into the room – gives nice spatial relationship to the rest of the elements.  Good light makes this shot both visible and possible.
 
What I had learned.
 
I always look to see what windows see.  I’ve learned to isolate elements – I’ve learned to find the story.

Surfaced Canvasback ~ This drake Canvasback surfaced from a shallow dive right in front of me. It is pretty tough to capture them right when they come up because I had almost no idea where that would happen but I got lucky with this fella. I loved the water drops falling off his head in this shot. Taken at Oakley Street in Cambridge Maryland. ~ 2/29/16 - 1/5000 sec at f/4.0 on Manual ~ ISO320 at 500 mm ~ using a 500 mm f/4 on a Nikon D4S ~ Please view large and feel free to share. #bird #birdphotos #birdphotography #birds #birdsgallery #birds4all #birdsinfocus #birdlovers #birdloversworldwide #birdloversandwildlife #hqspbirds #btbprobirds #wildlife #wildlifephotography #wildphotographer #wildlifephotos #nature #naturephotography #naturephotos #naturephotographer #maryland

Frühmorgens an der Ostmole in Warnemünde.

Die Zeit vor dem Sonnenaufgang hat hier etwas mystisches. Man ist noch allein. Nur Himmel, Wind und Wellen und das gleichmäßige aufleuchten der Leuchtfeuer.

Broken Frames

It's been one year since the earthquakes shook this part of the world and left Nepal in ruins and devastated. I collaborate with a friend to publish this article with a few pictures that I hope strikes a chord with everyone who sees it.
If you're interested - here's the link http://goo.gl/HoMSLZ

Working on these pictures was one of the hardest things I've had to do because of the emotions attached but I hope it serves it's purpose.

Take care everyone and I would really appreciate your views, shares, comments and +1s .

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!
