Justin Hill22,577338 Photographers :- Due to a post I saw float past in my stream today I am suddenly aware of the fact that I have not shared any of my circles for a very long time. So to rectify that here's my circle of photographers. If you are missing from this circle you are most probably in my other photography circle that is HDR based...if you are also missing from that one then I am sorry as I simply cannot add everyone that crosses my path or stream. Enjoy...2013-10-11 14:09:1333813311CC G+

Sumit Sen57,209A Circle ShareCircle sharing by individuals seems to passé these days, and most shares are curated circles put together on some general basis by a few. That suits me fine because I am not fashionable and pretty faded! :)This circle is not one which contains all my best friends here or all the folks whose photography I really admire. It contains members who are my engagement set. People who follow my posts and people whose posts appear on my stream on a regular basis. Part of the selection has to do with Gplus's stream feed algorithm and part of it has to do with time zones. But these 200 are part of my life on GPlus now and I meet them virtually almost everyday.I am sharing this list mainly for the benefit of my new followers who are looking for worthwhile additions to their circles. I expect that they will not be disappointed by the selection. Finally, comments are closed. You can of course share and plus if you want to :)2013-03-23 15:19:4120001580CC G+
Max Huijgen41,136Europe calling: the old giant wakes up and calls on its peeps! A new circle of Europeans as I promised long ago to connect the people who responded and share them. See for the first shared circle this post https://plus.google.com/112352920206354603958/posts/PDUi13o9dB1The original post was shared 225 times. You can find it here:https://plus.google.com/112352920206354603958/posts/CdhmHGbYjgiPart 2 is still open and can be found here:https://plus.google.com/112352920206354603958/posts/NDAhG4fP2a7If you didn´t do so already, post there and as long as I have spots free, I will circle you as I want to see my streams come alive during European hours.There was a shared feeling that it would be great to get some attention from G+ for Europe with official hangouts from the community managers during European times, feature roll-outs from Google no longer restricted to the US, having some central point to share European circles and last but not least the desire to have hangouts without having to burn the midnight oil. To help solve this and get Europeans together on the same page I created +Europeans on G+  It already has multiple managers out of the community and that initiative recently span off +European Photo  but feel to offer a bit of your time for this community project. Circle the page if you didn´t already do so. We need more peeps from all over Europe to participate and enjoy G+I hope these posts can do the rounds through Europe and gets us firmly on the G+ map. So even if you´re not European yourself, but sympathize with the initiatives to form a community here, help spread the word and share it.And don´t forget: we all love the other continents and most of us have circles which encompass the whole world. So it´s not against others, but pro us :)2013-03-15 15:05:14291532076CC G+

Gailen Mapes24,359Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon G-K - 8 of 14Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 500 members.I am now sharing one circle per day, for the reason see:https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/posts/RrPNTzHhQuHAs before these circles are photographers that I admire. They also have "more photos, less spam." There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).Be sure to get all 14 circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to February 15th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting February 1st.)I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday #handpickedcircles   #sharedcircles #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle2013-02-23 13:02:46249104CC G+

Csaba Mocsonoky6,476Merry whatever you celebreate (if you celebrate anything at all today)!Hey there, G+!To everyone, I would like to wish a great day, regardless of what you happen to celebrate or do today.Since I loved Christmas (that is what happens here in Hungary) as a child, I really do miss the old 'Christmas Spirit' which made those days of the year so magical (and by Spirit I mean family).Time passes, loved ones come and go, but usually and unfortunately, mostly go.This is not the most happy (or merry, if you like) time of the year for me but I try to make it better for myself and others.Which is why I decided to share this great circle of photographers (a thing I did from time-to-time) for you to explore. It's not really up-to-date, but if you don't have it already, it's high time you did! Have a nice day (and anything that remains of this year)!2012-12-24 09:27:38123606CC G+
Eileen O'Duffy11,884This is my Irish circle of friends. These people are either Irish or living and working in Ireland. They include a mixture of photographers, artists, writers, educators, technology, business people and more. Some don’t post very often, some only share limited to their circles. But they all have one thing in common: I know them, they are good people and genuine people and I always enjoy their posts. If I’ve left somebody out by mistake, please let me know. I’m so delighted to have met some of you through this Ireland community over the last week, I’d never have found you otherwise! 2012-12-20 23:22:44362215CC G+

Not everyone that was suggested is here.  Not everyone you think should be here is here.  These are my choices based on your recommendations. These people are highly interactive.  Many share circles and / or curate themes.  Some share lots and lots of photography tricks.  Some lead events.  Some are just nice people that like to interact with other photographers.  I hope you like this selection of community builders. .2012-09-23 16:09:2521712350109CC G+
Eileen O'Duffy8,684Guaranteed Irish Circle  #Ireland #GuaranteedIrish #SharedCirclesThis is my Irish circle. It includes artists, musicians, educators, technology people, business people, writers, historians photographers and much more. They all have one thing in common: they are Irish and either living in Ireland or Irish people living abroad. Some post limited i.e. share news of Irish interest only and some have drifted back to Twitter and I’m hoping to get them back here on G+ again. I’ve also included +Dirk Talamasca and given him honorary Irish citizenship as we manage the +Ireland  page together with  +Micheál Walsh. The +CircleCount  database is also useful if you are looking for Irish people http://www.circlecount.com/ie/popular/BTW I don’t normally share awesome/engaging/interactive circles as everybody I follow is awesome/engaging or I wouldn’t be following them in the first place!

Jane Ellen9,727It will be interesting to watch the ripples on this.#CircleSpider - via +Thomas Christinck Can we make a circle spider through G+? This could be a lot of fun or a huge failure. Hoping for the fun part! I was thinking the other day about the old game Telephone and how it could make creating new circles and finding new people a lot of fun.

Can we make one small circle spider through G+ creating many new circles in its wake? I put in top people that I enjoy interacting with from my circles. There are many more...but the point isn't to add everyone here at once.What I would like is if anyone is interested in being in this circle or adding to the cool people in this circle to follow these quick instructions (feel free to help clarify or to give me ideas to improve them!)-Add this as a new circle (I named my Spider so I could keep track of changes)-Add yourself (if you are not already in it) and a few of your top people to it.-Share the new circle you made-Tag the share #CircleSpider so we can keep track of all of the new circles made and new people added.-Paste these instructions in with each share or link to this post.2012-06-20 19:59:07109203CC G+

Max Huijgen24,852Europe calling: the old giant wakes up and calls on its peeps! Part IIAccording to the latest figures 426.9 million Europeans now use the InternetThere is a is feeling that it would be great to get some attention from G+ for Europe with official hangouts from the community managers during European times, feature roll-outs from Google no longer restricted to the US, and last but not least the desire to have hangouts and interaction without having to burn the midnight oil. To help solve this and get Europeans together on the same page I created +Europeans on G+  It already has four managers out of the community but feel to offer a bit of your time if you want to contribute. Circle the page if you didn´t already do so. I also organized a "I will circle you" project. If people commented that they came from Europe I would circle them instead of the other way. The intention was to share this circle back to the community and the first circle of 500 went out. You can find them here https://plus.google.com/112352920206354603958/posts/PDUi13o9dB1Now as promised it´s time for round 2: 300 people and a few European pages. Some very well known, some relatively unknown, but all certified active posters from Europe who will spice up your streams during European hours.Check them out and please share the circle as the intention is to get much more Europeans united!if you were left out while you signed up: my excuses as it´s a tedious job to manage all these circles. I checked all but I am only human :)2012-06-01 14:51:14301893957CC G+

Jerry Johnson5,061────────────────────────────────────          Monochrome Monday       ──────         Circle L-Z for 16 April      ──────              "thank you"           ──────────────────────────────────── • Firstly, we would like to thank everyone for participating in #monochromemonday ! • There was a very good turn out this week with over 900 people taking part! :-)• We include those who post MCM photos AND those who comment on them, because we believe that the interactions between people is a huge component of what makes this theme so special!NEW• Starting this week, we will share some of the best images contributed this week from the +Monochrome Monday page. So even if you don't add this circle, since Google+ requires users to circle a Page before that Page can share their posts, please be sure to add the Page so that we can include your image if/when we select it. Images that have more than a certain number of pluses (To be determined) will be added to the gallery almost without question. The curators of the theme will also pick images to add regardless of the number of pluses. This way, everyone will have a chance of being shown in the "gallery". The gallery shares will generally take place on Thursday or Friday.Hopefully the circle includes everyone that contributed to Monochrome Monday this week, but experience says we missed some. Everyone is important to the success of the theme and we apologize if we missed you.+Charles Lupica +Hans Berendsen +Jerry Johnson +Monochrome Monday and our newest curator +Manuel Votta would like to thank you for joining us this week. See you next week!!If we missed you we're sorry. Please let us know in the comments and I will try to make sure that you are included next week.Note: We want to be up front and transparent as your curators. Many of the people in this circle received a "notification" that we added them to our circles.

Mike Shaw1,146,786Circle Share DaySomething I have fallen out of the habit of doing and I need to get my backside back into gear for, I have three circles to share, this being the first.This is Women Photographers Of G+ and yes you will notice that +Olav Folland is both male and in there but after a cock up by me I decided to make him an honourary woman photographer, I don't think he is complaining though considering the company he keeps ;)2012-04-17 13:35:395007747134CC G+
Chrysta Rae27,755OKAY THIS IS IT!! THIS IS THE ACTUAL March Scavengers Circle(Delete the other circle completely)THESE are your peers. Your comrades. Your fellow foot soldiers AND your worst enemies!!Every single person in this circle is competing with you.260 OF YOU!!!That is 52%!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am OFF THE CHARTS happy about that number!!!(35% the first hunt, 29% the second hunt)Now, I'm sure you've all been wondering what I've been doing all morning. This last bit I needed to do was my double check round. And thank freaking goodness I did because I missed an entire person. Like totally missed her. Didn't even have her circled and she had an incredible album out there. I almost bit off my own tongue. BUT now I have all the loose ends tied, I am confident I got all the pictures and we're all good to go to the next phase!!!rubs hands togetherSo, over the next buncha hours I will be uploading albums and sending them to the judges. Let's remember that our judges all HAVE LIVES and it IS Easter weekend, so all we can do is be patient and have faith that they will make their choices and things will get rolling as soon as they can. Creating the albums takes a whole buncha time too. So be patient!!2012-04-07 18:26:07265109862CC G+

Andy Q.17,877#streetsaturday +Street Saturday As I don´t have any new photographs to post for my fave daily theme I thought I´d share my circle of street/documentary-photogs with you. I hope you will enjoy their work as much as I do.And here´s an interesting article on Street Photography by Dave Beckerman:http://www.picturecorrect.com/tips/street-photography-tips-and-techniques/As you can see there are many ways to define "street", and many ways to do street photography. Don´t try too hard to follow any rules you may be uncomfortable with, just go out there, open your eyes and have fun.Oh, and as I´ve only said it twice today here´s another HAPPY ST.

Violeta Ivanova987Since my Photographers circle exceeded 200 people, I decided to share my foundings around G+. Note that there are more photographers in other shared circles I've added, but I haven't sorted them out yet. I promise to share once I do that.For now, feel free to add those talented people and enjoy their work. Also would be great if you share the circle. To the included - thank you for making such beautiful and inspiring photos!2012-03-13 17:09:132032069CC G+
Melanie MP14,009.Please share!I have often seen the circles are shared with female photographers but still no circle with only male photographers.For me this is not equality. Equality means to treat me the same.So I have all the men and women separated from photographers circles and share my now 3 men and one women's circle with you. So once the men have their owncircles.I hope it will soon be more women, so I can make them 3 circuits.Here are included only photographers who actively participate in this year were or are.Errors are possible. There were so many ....And here is the women's circle (A to Z) Ich habe oft gesehen das Kreise mit weiblichen Fotografen geteilt werden aber noch keinen Kreis mit nur Männlichen Fotografen. Das ist für mich keine Gleichberechtigung. Gleichberechtigung heißt für mich gleich behandeln. Deshalb habe ich alle Frauen und Männer aus meinen Fotografen Kreisen getrennt und teile nun 3 Männerkreise und einen Frauenkreis mit Euch. Damit auch die Männer ml ihre eigenen Kreise haben. Ich hoffe das ich einmal genauso viele Frauenkreise, wie Männerkreise haben werde.Hier sind nur Fotografen enthalten, die in diesem Jahr aktiv waren oder sind. Fehler sind möglich. Es waren so viele....Und hier ist der Frauen Kreis (A bis Z )2012-03-11 10:56:3244139821CC G+

Knockamany Bens (with some cows)

This is from near Malin Head in Co. Donegal, an absolutely wonderful place to visit. There's a beautiful beach down there called the Five Fingers Strand and I'd highly recommend a stroll on it while listening to the clattering of the rocks when each wave hits.

We had absolutely incredible weather for 2 weeks (that's why I was around even less than usual) and well it's all over now but 2 weeks of Summer is probably some kind of record for Ireland (*crying).  I managed to have quite a few adventures in that time though and I don't look like a lobster.  Success!  I also made a Facebook (awkward) fan page thing https://www.facebook.com/LaylaKuyperPhotography during some sort of mild productivity panic so if any of you still use that come find me.

Bones

Unfortunately we didn't see the meteor shower a few weeks ago as it was mostly cloudy but it was magical anyway in the wind with the clouds flowing over the hills, the bright moon and just a few stars.  Up here we take what we can get.

My left leg got sucked into a bog hole too, there's always something eh.  Good times.

As you can probably imagine we don’t get very many cloudless, moonless nights in Donegal, Ireland but we’re having a very cold April. So when you check the forecast and it’s not only going to be dry but it’s actually going to be cloudless you realise you must get into the car and head for the hills! But first you must grab a photography friend who will bring some tea and chocolate, these items are essential for surviving night time photography trips. Also gloves. So after capturing the sunset at a lake we headed off into the hills and could not believe just how dark it was. Luckily we were also armed with a torch. Unfortunately my tripod wasn’t in the mood for a late night photography trip (or any photography related activity at any time) and refused to co-operate to even the most basic of tasks. Two broken tripod legs and a head which didn’t grip my camera at all left me feeling very nervoussitting in ... more »

Two broken tripod legs and a head which didn’t grip my camera at all left me feeling very nervous sitting in the dark by the waterfall as it had already dived off the top of the tripod several times and bumped me on the lip. I had one cold hand not shivering too hard holding on to the camera strap, luckily all of my photos didn’t come out blurry from my shivering (some of them did). Well my camera survived, but a chair would have been as useful and much less expensive. I’ll remember that for next time.

Hey everyone!  Can anybody help?

A friend of mine has set her sights on the Nikon D800 and now we're trying to figure out DX from FX and well it's all confusing stuff.  So I was wondering can anybody recommend some good FX lenses and does anybody have any experience using DX lenses on a full frame camera?  Will she explode?  Probably not but any advice or examples would be greatly appreciated.  

Thanks very much!

Things have been pretty hectic to say the least, but I wanted to pop by and say that yes I do still exist.  Hello!  My camera must be getting dusty by now but I'll be dusting it off very soon and warming it up.  I can't wait.

“I look up at the night sky, and I know that, yes, we are part of this Universe, we are in this Universe, but perhaps more important than both of those facts is that the Universe is in us. When I reflect on that fact, I look up—many people feel small, because they’re small and the Universe is big, but I feel big, because my atoms came from those stars.”

The Skeleton Of The Sea

This is Bád Eddie.  A very bad Eddie.  No, just kidding, that's the Irish for Eddie's boat as this wreck lies in the bay of Bunbeg which is a Ghaeltacht region in west Donegal.  I don't know much about it other than that it was run ashore in rough seas sometime in the 70s.

As I mentioned in my last post this is where I met the lovely +Athena Carey and had yummy tea and biscuits.  I remember the important stuff!  Well my toes still remember the cold and I have since bought several pairs of thermal socks.  Next time I'll be more prepared, I swear.

Well I suppose it's time for some tea and biscuits.  Oíche mhaith!

Hi everyone!  How are you all?  I'm trying to be more active on here again and start pressing that button on my camera more.  It's a fine button altogether, I should really be pressing it.

I recently had the pleasure of spending an afternoon in West Donegal with the lovely +Athena Carey and the could-do-with-a-lick-of-paint Bad Eddie.  Photos of Bad Eddie to come.  In other more chocolatey related news (I know why you're here):  Swiss chocolate is super delicious.

This however is a photograph of Downhill house in Northern Ireland beside Mussenden temple.  I'm posting it today because as I'm sure you all know there's nothing scarier than long exposures of tourists on a sunny day posted the day before Halloween.  Spooky or what!

So I was just trying to put my Tokina 11-16mm back on my camera and it won't lock on (y'know what I mean?  I'm not hearing the click and when I turn on the camera it doesn't know what's happening).. anybody have experience with this happening to a lens/how to fix it?  Lovely sunset out there and I'm missing it fiddling around.

The wind was blowing up there!
I forgot about this, I was only up there for a few minutes and it was too windy for setting up my tripod/my sanity (brrrrr).  It's a lovely spot though, I think next time I'll go in the Summer.  Whenever that is.  I think this is from February - I could check but that would ruin this rambling post that's going nowhere.  

Inishowen, Co. Donegal, Ireland  -  Thanks for looking!

This is where lovely turf comes from.  Lovely, lovely turf.  This evening, and I only got one insect bite on my face.  Success!

It's a raised bog, if you're interested.

Last night I had a dream (nightmare) that I posted a topless photo of myself on here because I thought it was artistic (it wasn't). I woke up in a panic.

Phew!

Old castles.. that's more like it!

Anybody else have any interesting dreams?

Great, there's a rainbow!
Ok, just gotta set up this should just take a sec..
hmm, where's my remote? Rummage around in my camera bag. Hmm.. nope.
Maybe it's still in that jumper from yesterday?
Or my jacket pocket. Hmm.. nope.
Oh well, I have one with a wire too. Oh dear, the wire's pretty tangled.
Right finally got it untangled, rainbow's still there.
Connection breaks inside camera.
Hmm..
Rainbow's nearly gone now.
Screw it, get in the water and press the button.

Since Paddy's day (Paddy not Patty, ahem) is coming up I thought I'd take this opportunity to share the lovely Lisa Hannigan. You may recognise her/her voice as she sang with Damien Rice for years but now she's solo. She seems to be one of those genuinely lovely people and here she is getting covered in paint. :)

"I'm not counting any chickens" -Jeff Bridges

I tried to find a nice quote, and then thought of Jeff Bridges and thought this was way funnier.

I somehow managed to take a photo today, I messed around with it for a while, got frustrated and started over a few times. This is something new to me but I'm happy enough with it.

Thanks for looking :) go raibh maith agat.

The Bridge of Sorrows - The Crying Bridge - Droichead Chaointe

The tearful farewell spot for thousands of Donegal immigrants as they walked to the port of Derry to travel to Australia or America. I'm showing the view from the bridge in this photo and not the bridge itself, I got a stronger feeling from being on the bridge than by showing it. It's somewhere I would like to revisit and spend some more time as this time I just jumped out of the car for a few minutes.

"The name has come down through oral Irish folklore and in the local Falcarragh area it is known as "The Crying Bridge"; in Irish = Droichead Chaointe (Chaon = to cry) or Droichead na ndeor (na ndeor = tears). "The Bridge of Sorrows", is a more recent but acceptable translation for the bridge."

Help Samir to live his dream as a photographer! This is a great chance to help somebody great from this fantastic community. :)

Hello Googlies. I'm reaching out to you today to see if we can put the power of this unbelievable and unmatched artistic community to work. As most of you know I've been working hard in hopes of transitioning completely to photography as a full time job. Thanks to the fantastic people here on G+ I've come so far in such a short time. Now comes the next step, and that's where I need your help. I badly need to upgrade my rig before I can finally take that leap, so what I want to to do is offer a special rate on prints to my favorite bunch of people in the world. I've gained so many followers here thanks to the love I received from the core group of us that have been here since the beginning that if a mere 1-2% of you bought one print each at $20 it would cover everything I need to dedicate myself completely to my passion. That seems very doable to me. I promise to you that every cent I receive in sales that isn't used for printing and shipping will go back into my business, and when I have reached my goal I will be sure to let you all know.

This album includes the shots that are currently available, but if there's something you would like that isn't in there please let me know. I'll gladly print any of my work for you. The $20 is for any size print you would like up to 11x16, and includes shipping to North America (international shipping may be a little more). Instead of using a print ordering service like smugmug or etsy I'm going to do this myself. I see no reason to give your money to those guys when I can just as easily take paypal payments and do the work myself, not to mention that this place is all about community and grassroots just feels like the right way to go. I've seen what you guys can do when you band together for a good cause.

If you would like to purchase a print please send a paypal payment to papsamir@gmail.com along with the title of the photo you would like as well as the size along with your name and mailing address.

Thank you x1,000,000 for helping me realize a dream and take my work to the next level. I love each and every one of you like family, because you are.

Please share this with your followers so we can get the word out far and wide!___Help Samir to live his dream as a photographer! This is a great chance to help somebody great from this fantastic community. :)

Not my photo
I've seen countless beautiful photos of Moraine Lake but this is one that really stood out to me (see I even went back on Dan's stream to find it and share it). The water looks especially wonderful I think.

I'd highly recommend checking out the rest of his photographs, there's some real variety and he does not disappoint. Absolutely stunning work.

I had lunch today with fellow Colorado photographer and friend +Colby Brown (you've probably never heard of him). Great guy and great photographer! He incourged me to get a G+ account months ago and he is the reason I am on here now. I am extremely glad he did. Great community, and great place to be inspired!
