"Ready.... AIM...." "WAIT!!! Why are we shooting at our own radio/space probe/thing?" Is what kept running through my mind as I looked at this here. I am sure there is someone with the ability to search such things, but I don't know any.... I mean talk about shooting yourself in the foot! Anyway speaking of shooting yourself in the foot, I am reminded of a time when I shot myself in the foot...

Here is a pool.

+Cristy Sherman and I did a guided beer tour in the historic district. It was a rain or shine event...and it was rain. We were completely soaked, but it was fun.  :-)

Giving Tree

I enjoyed this sunrise out at Rowena Crest on the Columbia River Gorge in Oregon. I could shoot flowers all day. These wild balsamroot sprout like crazy this time of year. 

My balhead plate is severely failing, so it took about 5 minutes just to compose/level. This one was a very complicated blend with multiple images stacked for focus and exposure.


As a reminder, I'm running my BIG PRINT SALE until tomorrow. only more day to get 35% off on all orders by using code BIGPRINTSALE at checkout. Also enjoy FREE SHIPPING on big print sizes.

Jerry O

Jerry O thought he was photo bombing my shot when he waved his hand and tried to get in front of my camera, but he was actually the subject.

"Sorry", he said with a smile.  

"That's okay, I was shooting you!" I replied.

"Oh, well then let me pose properly", he suggested.  We took a couple shots.  I asked him if he would remove his sunglasses.

"Well, that's sort of my look.. but okay", he said as he obliged.

Thanks for the street portrait, Jerry O!

How to share
You cannot share directly with the HQSP Winners page. The photos shared at this page are chosen by the HQSP Winners 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 managers of the theme pages share the posted photographs on the theme pages. How you can share with the themes can be found on the about page of these pages.

The mangers 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 my 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 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.
