Welcome to the HQSP Photo Art & Manipulation page.
What do we share on this page? What is art and what is not is difficult to define. To us it is art when it has something special; something unique. That can be all kinds of things in the vision of the artist. Specifically we share manipulated photographs. Use your imagination! Add subject matter, remove it, reshape it so that it has new meaning or evokes a different emotional response. In all cases the result should be your own work. If you use photographs or parts of photos from other artists then please ask for permission and credit the original photographer. Giving credit to the source is essential.
As with other HQSP themes please avoid religious iconography, profanity, or subject matter than can be considered hurtful.
It would be nice if you would explain what you did with the photo in your post, how you processed it. It would be great if we can learn from each other.
HQSP reserves the right to make a choice from the shared photos.

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
- 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.
