annok  asked:

Hi there! I really like your blog and I'd like to submit some of my photos. But you don't seem to allow a submission via a link to the original post on my blog. Why is that? If I submit a photo, will you reblog the original one or will you post it as new photo? The reason why I am asking is, that reblogging allows me to keep track of the likes/reblogs and visitors are directed to the original blog. Have a nice day, Annok :)

Hey, there! Thank you for your question! Yes, indeed, we do not accept link-submissions. We did try that for a limited amount of time, but this - and the experiences some of us made while working with other supporting-blogs - made us decide to switch this feature off again.
The reason is simple: The PWS queue has a very low output. We are currently running at plusminus twelve photos as day. Six submissions and six reblogs with comment. We think, this is a good amount and a good mix of photos, we think are worth seeing and photos, the photographers themselves consider to be worth seeing.

If we’d open link-submissions, we’d be flooded with links and because of the low output, submissions usually sit too long in our inbox anyway. If we’d get more (and we would get lots more), we’d have two options to tackle that:

1) Be even more selective than we already are, and that would mean more manpower (actually woman- and manpower) to really keep track.
2) We had to crank up the queue - something we definitly will not do in the next time.

The mix of reblogs with comment and submissions is very important to us. We try to keep this in balance as good as ever possible. When in doubt, we rather publish more reblogs with comments than submissions.

About submitting a photo: If you submit a photo, we will publish the submission and not reblog the original photo.

I absolutely see your point about the notes and reblogs. But at the time of writing, we see no other way than not accepting link-submissions. About your concern of the link-back to your blog: Our submission guidelines state clearly that a submission has to include the link to the blog, and so it’s perfectly transparent, who sent in the submission.

Thank you for understanding.

P.S.: Usually we answer these kind of questions privately, but since we received quite some similar ones lately, I thought, I might publish this one. All of this also in our FAQ’s btw ;)

// The Arts Of Capoeira (set 2)

(Go <here> for set 1)

Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art that developed in the 19th century. It combines elements of dance, acrobatics and martial art from different social and cultural groups. In this project I wanted to visualize it’s unique movements and elements. The combination of stroboscopic lights and long exposure enables to show the overall, abstract shape as well as the detailed sequence of the motion.

// Die Elemente der Capoeira (set 2)

(Hier geht es zu Set 1)

Capoeira ist eine brasilianische Kampfsportart, die sich im 19. Jahrhundert entwickelte. Sie kombiniert Tanz-, Akrobatik- und Kampfelemente verschiedener sozialer und kultureller Gruppen. In diesem Projekt möchte ich ihren einzigartigen Stil der Bewegungen und Elemente visualisieren. Dabei ermöglicht es die Kombination aus Stroboskoplicht und Langzeitbelichtung sowohl die allgemeine, abstrakte Form der Bewegung, als auch ihren detaillierten Verlauf zu zeigen.

// Stream - From the “World of thoughts “ series 

“I am flooded by the high tides of thoughts. So I dive into its stream and let myself drift willingly/unwillingly.” 

// Ströme - aus der Serie “Gedankenwelten”

“Die Gedankenflut überspült mich. Ich tauche in den Strom ein und lasse mich willig/widerwillig treiben.“

// Gedankenbaum 

Wo verbleiben die Gedanken, die unserer Vorstellung entspringen? Welches Universum erbauen wir unbewusst bewusst? Jede Intuition, jede Meinung, jeder ach so minimaler Gedanken bildet sich. Hauchfeine Ideen knospen an starken, rustikalen Gebilden gestandener Erfahrung. Unfassbare Lichter, die, zufällig verbunden, erleuchten. Jeder unserer Gedanken formt. Wie die Rinde eines Baumes: Gedankenbäume. Die Strukturen unserer Welt: der Gedankenwelt. 

// Tree of thoughts

Where do thoughts remain once released from our imagination? Which universe do we build unconsciously conscious. Every intuition, every opinion every ever so small thought is formed. Fine ideas bud on strong, rustic formations of grown-together experience. Incomprehensible lights which, connected by coincidence, ignite. Everyone of our thoughts builds. Like the bark of a tree: trees of thoughts. The structures of our world: the world of thoughts.
