There… & back again

I won’t spend time explaining my long absence cause there is simply no real excuse. So I will make this one short.

Adidap is going live again and I will start posting again. We have so much to catch up with so it is going to be busy for now.

I have no clear view yet about how I will catch up with the flickr rounds but we’ll see as it goes.

So thank you for your support and see you here shortly.

Are you still alive?

I don’t know what to say, I am sick of finding excuses and I am sorry for the delay. However life has been crazy at work lately I’ve been working till 2 am everyday and when I don’t I’m trying to spend some time with my kids !

I thank you all for your thoughts and emails and I feel really bad about my silence and I will update what’s missing soon by the end of this week I promise.

In the mean time let’s fix March assignment to “RUSH” and I have one free pro smugmug account to giveaway so I think it will be for the best “RUSH” picture. You still have a little less than 2 weeks for that contest so hurry and don’t forget to tag your pictures with “ Mar 09 assignment” (with the quotes)

OK me back to work I have an Exchange server to save !! Thanks again for your attention it sure is good.

How your picture end up on adidap

A few weeks ago I got the following comment on one of the flickr rounds

This is not the right way to vote for the pics… here are some very poor composition also , people are just marketing their pics and force people to vote for their pic only… is that the way for a photography competition ?? I don’t think so … lol .. its just making fun of the real creativity… !!!

Although I find this comment harsh and untrue, it got me thinking that you deserve to know how pictures end up published here on

Simply submit to the group

I am grateful for every picture that is submitted to our flickr group and each one has its own minute of fame. The Reader’s Photos displays, in real time, the 20 most recent pictures of the group.

If you want more and would like to be published in one of the weekly rounds keep reading.

Check your thumbnail
Where I live we do not have the luxury of high speed internet connection and bandwidth is somehow limited here so, the first impression I take from a picture is the default thumbnail displayed in the pool. If I find the thumbnail appealing I will open to see the big picture.

Post often
I was hesitating to write this but it is true. I have the human tendency to want to feature more the people that I am familiar with. This doesn’t mean that I will automatically feature in each round all the pictures of the people I know but, if you are a regular, chances are that I will get familiar with your style and get to like your pictures and you will get featured more often.

Go colorful or colorless

I like colorful pictures as well as black and white ones, washed colors with a vintage look works well for me too. You can’t really go wrong here anything might catch my eye.

Go minimal

I love minimalism that’s a fact! I can’t help noticing these images where less is in fact more.

Go weird or unusual
Day 24 - Self Portrait (by piston9)Untitled (by polly's po)cold deep shower (by photography)
I find myself featuring more of these images that just pop-up to my eyes and don’t look like anything I’ve seen before.

Get Close

Another tips, I like really closeup portrait

Make me think or wonder
Warm bond in a frosty morning (by El-Hassan)Red (by seanjonesfoto)I'm sick. (by Julia's perspective)
I simply can’t get enough of these pictures that make me think. I can just look at them for hours lost in thoughts .

And that doesn’t mean you won’t get your picture featured unless you follow these “guidelines“, I see myself featuring a lot of landscape pictures for example.

Well that’s it! Rambling mode off.

To get featured in our yearly calendar that’s totally up to you guys, you are the one to vote remember !
