Invisible Hunter before the Hunt.

Spotting this Costa Rican Tiger Heron  on the Laguna de Arenal was almost impossible. We were very surprised something came out from that grass. And he wasn't shy or scared of the people on the boat. Just went about his business of resting and catching the next meal.

Please let me know your thoughts. You opinions are important to me.

Kleintje - Little one

Een foto die ik een tijdje geleden nam in Burgers Zoo. Ze hebben daar een prachtige groep gorilla's. Meedere jongen waaronder een tweeling. Prachtig! Ik had geluk en kon heel veel foto's maken. Voor meer foto's, zie die fotoblog: http://anjawessels.nl/?p=2000

A photo I took in Burgers Zoo a while ago. They have a wonderful group of gorillas. Including several young ones, and a pair of twins. Gorgeous! I was lucky and was able to take lots of pictures. For more photos, see this photo blog: http://anjawessels.nl/?p=2000

Camera: canon EOS 650d

HQSP Animals - We share your best animal shots!
Introduction

Welcome to the HQSP Animals Page. This page is part of the HQSP pyramid. On this page we share your beautiful animal photos. It can be your dog, your cat, an animal in the zoo, an animal in the wild, etc. However, we don’t share birds here. Please choose #hqspbirds | +HQSP Birds for bird photos.

HQSP Animals team: Krystina Isabella | Alejandro J. Soto | Andy Smith 

Owner: Anja Wessels


How to share With our page:
1 add the + HQSP Animals page to your circles
2 add the curators to your circles:
3 Hash tag  #hqspanimals and plustag +HQSP Animals  in your post. Our curators appreciate being tagged in your posts as well.
4 To make sharing even easier, you can just copy and paste the following:

 #hqspanimals  +115459135731271475295 curated by +117634467777014768099 +113700935647920525743 +100894839987772923351

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 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.
