How to submit contest images to Facebook Album

18 Mar 2017

Posted by jpeg2RAW - Mike in Contest & Challenges

I did a post in both our Beginner's group and the regular jpeg2RAW group on Facebook.  Here is the link to the Facebook post - https://www.facebook...51442288254746/

 

 

From time to time, I get asked “How do I enter the jpeg2RAW Monthly Photo Contest?” or “What is the theme of this month’s contest?”.  Hopefully this post will help answer those questions.
 
There are 2 ways to enter the contest.  Through our website (http://www.jpeg2raw....hoto-challenge/) and through the Facebook group.  This post explains the Facebook Group method of entering.
 
The screen shot below is of the jpeg2RAW Facebook Group.  In the Red circle, you can see the “Pinned Post” name and then directly below that is the post.

Below is the mobile view of the Facebook Group.  Note that the Pinned post is closed and you need to click on the "View Pinned Post" link to reveal it.

Let’s take a closer look at the Contest Post.

There are 3 main things to note about the post, other than the images of course.
  1. This is the link to the Contest Album.  Click here to go to the next screen where you can upload your image.
  2. This is the Theme of the Contest.  In this case, it was “Best of 2016”, which was the best image you took in 2016.
  3. Link to the contest rules.
After you click on the Contest Album link (#1 above), you will see a screen like this one:

Note the 3 numbered items above:
  1. Theme of the Contest
  2. Contest Rules
  3. Click the “Add Photos” link to add your image.
To add your image, click the Add Photos link (#3 above) and you will see a screen asking you to upload your image.  Find the image you want to add (should be no less than 2048px on the long end) and upload it.  Once it has been uploaded, you will see a screen like this one:
Attached File  Image Add.png   129.71KB   0 downloads
 
 
On the screen above is where you add some information about your image.  You can include the technical info, which can be very helpful to others, but also remember to include something about why you took the image, what it means to you and/or what you where trying to achieve with the image.
Ok, so now you have your image posted and you decide that you want to replace it with another image.  
 
Click the link to go back into the album, find your image and then click the little pencil icon in the upper right of the image.  A dropdown menu will appear (see below), click on the “Remove This Photo” link to remove your image.

Keen to hear feedback on some of my favorite photos

06 Mar 2017

Posted by Cookie in Photo Critique

Tried to photograph the fireworks, trialing different apertures and shutter speeds.

Action shot at local basketball club, jump balls only happen once a game now.

Some street art, this one caught my eye and loved how the shadow fell across the owls face (first attempt at HDR photography)

Attached File  Jpeg2Raw critique (3).jpg   211.26KB   2 downloads

Visited some friends up north and had a great time on the donuts, wanted to photograph some action.

Attached File  Jpeg2Raw critique (4).jpg   161.15KB   3 downloads

This street art is in a location not normally open to the public, wanted to bring out the colors with HDR.

Attached File  Jpeg2Raw critique (5).jpg   227.86KB   3 downloads

Visited this bay to see the unusual red alga alga on the rocks, loved the look of the waves crashing over this rock.

Attached File  Jpeg2Raw critique (6).jpg   157.12KB   3 downloads

I love wrens, this one was just teasing me for a while and finally came to rest about 5 metres away, snapped this one from the hip.

Attached File  Jpeg2Raw critique (7).jpg   237.72KB   3 downloads

This wasp was actually not originally a macro shot, but the sharpness of the original photo ment that I could crop it in post to focus on it.

Attached File  Jpeg2Raw critique (8).jpg   183.47KB   2 downloads

This was the view from a house we stayed at in Tasmania, loved the look of the valley in the golden hour.

Attached File  Jpeg2Raw critique (9).jpg   178.77KB   3 downloads

After sunset the purples and blues were so unusual I tried a HDR to bring out the natural colors we could see.

Attached File  Jpeg2Raw critique (10).jpg   192.11KB   3 downloads

This massive tree was towering over this little clearing, wanted HDR to show how imposing and beautiful it looked.

Attached File  Jpeg2Raw critique (11).jpg   303.28KB   3 downloads

This waterfall is quite famous in these parts and this day had been raining fairly steadily so the flow was good but not too strong, stood in the river to capture this HDR as the shadow had put the waterfall in near darkness.

[attachment=416:Jpeg2Raw critique (12).jpg]

A famous boat shed and a famous shot, wanted to put my own HDR style to it and made the clouds look almost stormy.

Attached File  Jpeg2Raw critique (13).jpg   176.2KB   3 downloads

This street art looked really well done and had vivid detail, wanted HDR to capture the true colors of this masterpiece.

Attached File  Jpeg2Raw critique (14).jpg   224.1KB   3 downloads

This police station in Tel Aviv features on many postcards and I was keen to get my own photo of this iconic building and alley way.

Attached File  Jpeg2Raw critique (15).jpg   197.55KB   3 downloads

I loved this massive river running through the town of Salsburg, tried HDR Panorama for first time.

Attached File  Jpeg2Raw critique (16).jpg   150.61KB   3 downloads

Another HDR Panorama to show the breath taking view over Salsburg from this ancient Fort.

Attached File  Jpeg2Raw critique (17).jpg   126.85KB   3 downloads

Was disappointed by the view from the top of the mountain, but the low cloud gave this forest floor an almost fairy tail appearance.

Attached File  Jpeg2Raw critique (18).jpg   271.1KB   2 downloads

These ferns and fallen tree caught my eye and the colors were so gorgeous, this HDR needed a lot of work in post to bring out the detail.

Attached File  Jpeg2Raw critique (19).jpg   263.78KB   3 downloads

This aboriginal street art was huge and was difficult to find the right spot to photograph it, I hoped this HDR would work in post and I was thrilled by the result.

Attached File  Jpeg2Raw critique (20).jpg   123.65KB   3 downloads

This street art was so mesmerizing and the greens were so deep, I tried to capture the depth the artist painted onto this wall.

Attached File  Jpeg2Raw critique (21).jpg   137.13KB   3 downloads

I love these flowers, it's not often you find one nestled in amonst the the green fronds.

Attached File  Jpeg2Raw critique (22).jpg   41.31KB   3 downloads

This tree was very large and photographing it from so close was tricky, but the combination of HDR and aperture also brought out the lights in this dark alley way.

Attached File  Jpeg2Raw critique (23).jpg   171.4KB   4 downloads

 

Hope you like my photos. Looking forward to hearing feedback good and bad. Hoping to improve my eye for photography so I don't need to work so hard in post.
