Green Collision:

I’ve been shooting a lot of water drops. It’s a challenging endeavor but I’m slowly making headway.  This is an image  I took a couple weeks ago but never got around to posting. It was done with a medicine dropper, laser trigger, and some xanthan gum water dyed with green food color. Getting collisions to occur with a medicine dropper is tricky as the bulb squeeze has to have just the right consistent pressure to get drops falling at a rate that the first drop impacts the water and forms a Worthington jet and then a subsequent drop impacts the apex of the jet. Not enough pressure on the bulb and there is no collision. Too much pressure and the photographer ends up with a splashy green mess. 

Image specs: Single Shot Table Mounted Canon 5D-3, Canon TSE 90mm w/36mm tubes @ - f/18 - SS 1/200 - ISO1600 - Dual 430-EX II flashes with plexiglass diffuser panel for ceiling lights.

Vättern Ice Harp

We went to lake Vättern to get a good look at some old abandoned buildings and hopefully get some nice light (as there usually is by big waters). These spikes were an unexpected bonus.

This was the first time I put the Eos M3 and EF-M 11-22 to use. I think it worked out great:-)

Mohawk - Hoatzin style!

Hoatzin (Opisthocomus hoazin)

www.ross.no

The iconic Hoatzin is a strange looking bird as well as in behaviour, but it's also beautiful I think. It's like no other bird!

It raises the head plume as seen here when excited - by each other or passers by like me.

Nice hairdo!

Bradleys Light

Bradley’s Head, Mosman, Sydney, NSW, Australia
NIKON D750 + 24.0-70.0 mm f/2.8 @ 32 mm, 134 sec at f/14, ISO 100

http://www.rc.au.net/blog/2016/01/30/navigating-bradleys/

Six months ago…. :)… after a bit of a last minute discussion about potential locations for a Sunday sunrise shoot we opted for a quick trip to Bradley’s Head to shoot the Navigating Lighthouse there.

Our deliberations for a shooting location roamed far and wide from jetty’s and piers way down south to way up north, to seascape locations along the coast.

In the end we (+Deb Mooney, +Gerard Blacklock and I) opted for convenience (somewhere very close by :)) and hoped for the best :).

Bradley’s Head is a headland protruding from the north shore of Sydney Harbour in the suburb of Mosman and is quite close to Taronga Zoo.

I’ve shot here on a number of occasions at sunset and it’s a quite popular spot for that because the sun sets behind the city and Harbour bridge to the south west and you have a great view across the water of the harbour.

I’d never shot at this location at sunrise and it was this navigating lighthouse that I wanted to include in my shots here this time.

There’s actually a good reason why this location isn’t a popular sunrise location… The area has a reasonably long promitory of land sticking out into the harbour and theres a single road which leads out and down to the end. There are gates up at the top of that road which are usually locked at at night and reopened in the morning.

This means that you don’t want to be shooting a late sunset at certain times of the year lest you get locked in and likewise we didn’t expect to be able to get in in the morning and planned to park outside and walk in (about 20-30mins).

The location gods smiled on us today – the gates were open and we could drive right down. However this mean we were on location much earlier than we were expecting so it was very very dark :)

Still after a recce of the area and messing about with the parking machine which gratefully accepted our credit card donations but didn’t actually print us any tickets! :) we all headed off and looked for our first compositions.

The three of us actually headed off in different directions this morning which is pretty unusual. As the clouds decided not to appear making us almost wish we were back in bed instead :), Gerry looked to shoot towards the city from the stone pier, Deb went in search of the details and I headed around the point to the lighthouse I wanted to shoot.

This shot is actually the first frame of the morning taken at 6:27AM and still 30 minutes till sunrise. No test exposures here I winged the 134 second exposure on the fly and either skillfully interpreted the ambient light and the rough exposure required OR got lucky and the exposure was just about spot on – you pick :)

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!
