HQSP HDR11,505Welcome HDR fans! We have promised you something special last time and here it is! In this brand new contest we’re giving you freedom to post your most creatively abused HDR photos ever! Overcooked HDRs probably don’t look very nice, but they’re really fun to create (especially if you have no clue what you are doing!). Beware though, the most common HDR technical errors like halos or excessive noise *WILL BE TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT* while judging your entries so don’t get carried away! :-) Shot any subject you like with any technique you like! We personally recommend stuffing Photomatix with 11 exposures of your subject and then start abusing those sliders immediately! Or better yet- check your archives- one of your most worst looking HDRs from the past might become an unexpected winner! Either way, have fun and remember, creativity wins here- commit a photo that is painful to look at but interesting at the same time!! Despite huge room for interpretation in this event, there are still some rules you have to follow. One rule is changing *ONLY FOR THIS EVENT* though and *WE WILL LET YOU POST NOT TWO BUT THREE PHOTOS*, just to make sure our judge and winner of last Sunrise/Sunset Contest @102830701146544144144 is really busy!

You can always delete and replace your entries but limit of 3 applies. 8. This contest will be judged by @102830701146544144144, winner of SUNRISE/SUNSET event.

Through participating in this event our community will get a taste of The Arcanum Experience: Learning through constructive critiques, which is just one of the many things that happen inside the hallowed magical doors! The Arcanum Photo Critique and Make-Over event is a Google+ Hangout On Air, open to the public, scheduled for Monday February 10th at 7pm. *To Participate:* You must submit a single candidate photo by Sunday, February 9th to be considered for the random selection.  You can submit any photo to The Arcanum Google+ page at @111508817579086020312 . Since you already applied to The Arcanum - we truly hope you'll submit a photo to be critiqued. If not, no worries at all!   Either way, you can watch the live event! :) And if you're wondering when the doors will officially open for The Arcanum, the answer is as soon as magically possible!  We're doing a test run right now with all the Masters to work out any kinks.  Also, we are a _bit_ (!!) overloaded with Apprentice applications, so it will take a while to ramp up.  It may be a good opportunity for you to pop over and update your application at www.TheArcanum.com ! Thank you!The Arcanum Photo Critique and Make-Over with Rick Sammon, Varina Patel, Dave Cross, and me!2014-02-11 04:00:00897

Trever McGhee95,784Please accept my apologies if your one of the few that got hit by a bug in their system! This is my first event and for some reason Google notified some people 20 times and for some their system was planning on doing that within their calendars for the next 5 years...every single day...20 times a day...how it did or why it would set peoples calendars up to be notified 20 times a day...I don't know. Hopefully they've got it corrected, if not please let me know. I know I wanted to help peoples wishes come true but not in that way, The goal of this event my Birthday is give you as many of my Birthday Wishes as you require...why because you deserve it. My wish is here is to connect you to the thoughts/ the energy of thousands of people around the world all making a Birthday Wish for themselves from the heart... to you. I like to Imagine the energy from all those making a wish and the energy coming from the ones that come true(the smiles..the laughter..the tears...the overflowing of pure joy) being connected to you to power your own wish to come true. Thanks to some theories about Quantum Physics there's no space between you or me or them...topped with the fact they tell us energy is never destroyed, it's gotta go somewhere as each new person joins in, so why not to you to empower your wish to come true sooner rather than later. Imagine being connected to thousands....millions of others all making wishes...all hoping that your wish comes true for it will help empower their wish. They've documented several cases of where positive thoughts have made a difference, so why not around someones birthday who can then share it with everyone whose connected to that person...so me for this event. It's never been done before, so why not now....be part of it. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain as we go day by day, year by year building this community of wish granters. Now think of an image that represents your wish and then take2seconds to think of that image at least once a day until it comes true. Have fun with it, there's no right or wrong way when you come from the heart. Please let us know as each wish comes true...yes each wish...there's no law that says you're only granted one wish...you deserve everyone of them when they come from the heart..when that wish fills you with the passion for life... *****UPDATE at first I was focused on getting as many people as possible for this so that everyone had more energy but now after reading your comments..hearing your passion for life...the numbers have gone completely out the window for each one of you have brought your own unique energy to the equation that's priceless....THANK YOU In my world Birthday wishes can be made everyday of the year because it's a celebration everyday that your here to share this with. So today I Celebrate being 44 and 1 day old.Update to fix Google Bug for "It's My Birthday and my wish is for your wishes to come true!!"2012-08-17 12:00:00203

Castelo de Valongo / Valongo Castle
Montoito, #Portugal

Português/English

Descrição da foto:
O Castelo de Valongo é um castelo medieval bem preservado localizado na freguesia de Nossa Senhora de Machede, perto de Montoito.
Referência a este castelo aparece pela primeira vez em 1283, a partir de cartas de venda entre a infanta D. Leonor Afonso, filha do rei D. Afonso III, descobertas pelos seus descendentes Pero Anes e D. João Peres Aboim.
Há indicações de que uma torre existiu perto do local do castelo. No século XIV no cartulário da Sé Catedral de Évora, a torre primitiva ou castelo já existia antes da construção da estrutura conhecida como o Castelo Velho, localizado na margem oposta da Ribeira de Valongo. Pensa-se que foi uma mansão romana junto à estrada.

O castelo está localizado numa área rural, num plano inclinado sobre uma pequena plataforma e sobre uma suave encosta de 200 metros, perto da Ribeira de Valongo, afluente da Ribeira de Degebe.

Photo description:
The Castle of Valongo is a well-preserved medieval castle located in the civil parish of Nossa Senhora de Machede, near Montoito.
Reference to the castle first appears in 1283, from letters of sale between the Infanta D. Leonor Afonso, daughter of King D. Afonso III, discovered by her descendants Pero Anes and D. João Peres Aboim.
There were indications that a tower had existed near the site of the castle. In the 14th century cartulary of the Sé Cathedral of Évora, the primitive tower or castle already existed before the construct of the structure known as the Castelo Velho, located on the opposite bank of Ribeira da Valongo. It was a Roman mansion along the road.
The castle is located in a rural area, on an incline over a small platform over a gentle slope 200 metres (660 ft) isolated near the Ribeira de Valongo, an affluent of the Ribeira do Degebe.
