They are split to not exceed 200 members. These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity). Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to March 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting February 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."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   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-03-26 10:26:58194000

Also, there is a chance that a preexisting perforated eardrum could be undiagnosed and the irrigation process may push wax, dead skin and bacteria through the eardrum into the middle ear, with the resultant potential for infection. This is why many GP surgeries have stopped ear syringing and oto-irrigation and now refer all patients to their local ENT department for aural microsuction.This service is free under the NHS, but the usual two week wait for syringing by the GP Practice Nurse has now extended to up to six weeks or more, as ENT clinics struggle to cope with the demand. At London Hearing Aids, we can offer aural microsuction wax removal in London, Middlesex and Hertfordshire.

David Pilasky31,499Landscape Photography Community Inspiration CircleCongratulations to the Best of the Best for December, 2014!!  Each person here has had at least one photograph selected by a moderator as a #LandscapePhotoOfTheDay!!  Some have had more than one photo selected!!Are you looking for inspiration for your Landscape Photography?  This is it!I'm NOT in the circle, but really wish I was!1. Study the landscape photographs produced by these people.  Each day, look at their work, study it.  Compare their work to yours.  There's a reason that their photographs were selected by a moderator.  Check out the learning opportunities in some of our categories.2. Try to improve your landscape photographs.  *Remember quality is more important than quantity!*3. Keep sharing your best landscape photographs with the Landscape Photography Community!  4. Do not dump and run. Post a comment with your photo. Tell us about it or tell us about the experience.Maybe next month YOU will be in the Inspiration Circle!!Note: The hardworking Landscape Photography Community moderators are also in this circle.  #sharedcircles #circleshare 2015-01-03 13:18:09128669

Guido Bibra4,763Circle Share #2: Photography OneThis is the first part of my "big" hand-picked photographer circles. Everybody from the Essentials circle is also in here, plus everyone I noticed in other circles, who plussed or commented on my posts or who I learned to know through other people. If you're not in there, either I haven't noticed you yet or you don't fulfil my one requirement: you have to post your own work. There are only original photography content creators in here!2014-12-30 16:41:2350011216
Guido Bibra4,763Circle Share #1: Photography EssentialsLike at the end of last year, I want to say thanks to all the amazing people here on Google+ by sharing a few of my circles, which is easier said than done because my own circle collection is pretty chaotic. This first one is my "small" Photography circle of people I mainly found in the beginning over two years ago, although the size of this circle has doubled in the last twelve months. These are people whose posts I don't want to miss even when I don't have time to look at all the other circles. Don't be disappointed if you're not in there - there are two much bigger photo circles coming up next!2014-12-30 16:36:31269816

As well as extra bulk, these would be one more gadget you'd have to remember to charge. The Made For iPhone protocol and hardware does away with all that as it's already built in to the hearing aids.

Early morning in Venice
A view of the gondola stands near Rialto Bridge in Venice, just after sunrise, before they open for business.
One of the nice things about this hour is that you have chance to walk the streets without the usual tourist crowds, and calmly take in the sights and sounds undisturbed ;-).

Clouds over Cuernos del Paine
These clouds over the well known Cuernos del Paine peaks show the variety of (turbulent) conditions coexisting in different layers of the atmosphere, typical of Patagonia. Seen in the Torres del Paine National Park, Patagonia, Chile.

Parading the flag
Each samba school in the Carnival Parade in Rio de Janeiro has several couples of "Mestre Sala e Porta Bandeira", the flag bearer (always female) and her escort (always male). They perform intricate choreographies during the parade, presenting the school's flag to the public. This is one of the couples from the Portela Samba School.

The weather in Patagonia can get to extremes. This day a fiery storm with very high winds was hitting Lake Nordenskjold, and the Paine Massif, in the Torres del Paine National Park in the Chilean Patagonia.
It was very difficult to keep steady!

Lago Pehoe and the majestic Paine Massif
A somewhat classical view in the Torres del Paine National Park, in the Chilean Patagonia. The interesting thing is that there were different wind current speed and directions (a constant in this region) at the lower and higher elevations, leading to completely different cloud formations.

Jökúlsárlon lagoon sunset, Iceland

It's interesting to see how older chunks of ice from the glacier have this crystal-like look, sometimes resembling huge diamonds. Unfortunately, in this part of the lagoon, the ice was moving pretty fast towards the canal, so a long exposure was not really possible...

Baianas in Samba School
The "Baianas" are old ladies that dress up in big rounded skirts, originally the dress worn by followers of Candomblé (an african-american religion), and later heavily stylized by the Samba School theme authors.
It is traditional in every Samba School to have a section with "baianas", most of them being older ladies that are part of the community where the Samba School is based.
This image was made at the the Imperatriz Leopoldinense Samba School parade during Carnival in Rio de Janeiro.
I used a slow shutter speed to get the motion blur effect to emphasize the swirling movement of the colorful skirts.

Baianas in Samba School
The "Baianas" are old ladies that dress up in big rounded skirts, originally the dress worn by followers of Candomblé (an african-american religion), and later heavily stylized by the Samba School theme authors.
It is traditional in every Samba School to have a section with "baianas", most of them being older ladies that are part of the community where the Samba School is based.
This image was made at the the Imperatriz Leopoldinense Samba School parade during Carnival in Rio de Janeiro.
I used a slow shutter speed to get the motion blur effect to emphasize the swirling movement of the colorful skirts.

Samba school parade
This is an image of the "abre alas", the lead section that opens the parade for a Samba School, introducing the theme.
Depicted here are the (stylized) Botocudos indians that inhabited parts of Minas Gerais, the theme for this Samba School,Salgueiro.
I really like the effect of this led shawl, making the character resemble a madonna.

Dancing on a floating stand
All Samba Schools have huge motorized floats that depict some aspect of their theme. Such floats often use people in costumes, starlets and famous people as part of the decor.
A few of these people - notably good looking women - are placed (using forklifts!) on high-standing "floating" platforms (often higher than 20-30ft), as a way to bring them to eye level with the audience in the stands on either side of the road where they parade. They usually have poles to help the dancer keep their balance (and not fall over...) as they dance throughout the parade which lasts over one hour.

This image http://goo.gl/HYt4fu gives a wider perspective of the float.

Samba school participant
This parader is part of the "Comissão de Frente", the first group of paraders that opens the parade of a Samba School (association) during Carnival in Rio de Janeiro. They dress according to the school's theme for the year, which follows a quite intricate narrative with characters personified by the members of the school, and by the floats.

In the clouds
These costumes represent cloudy skies...The >34C temperature did not seem to hinder their enjoyment. Seen in the São Clemente samba school parade during Carnival, in Rio.
I played with the intentional motion blur coupled with the strong lights to get this almost surreal effect. Let me know how you like it...

Carnival in Rio de Janeiro
I was fortunate enough to be able to get a press pass to photograph the Samba School parade in Rio de Janeiro right from the ground.
I'll be posting several images I made in the coming weeks.
Besides the "classical" documentary style images, I like to experiment with motion blur effects, much inspired by Ernst Haas, for those who know his work.
This one attracts me because of the movement, glitter and colors. Too bad I can't add a soundtrack ;-)
I hope you like them!

Early morning in Venice
A view of the gondola stands near Rialto Bridge in Venice, just after sunrise, before they open for business.

Amazing high definition time lapse of my hometown
Incredible images in super high def!
The view in shot one is very close to what I see from my office; you can almost see where I live in the opening of shot 3. One can recognize many of the locations of my images (in my Rio de Janeiro album)...

(thanks to +Karl Louis for the tip!)

Patagonian trees get very old, but don't grow much because of the weather, especially the heavy winds.
This one was seen near Rio Serrano, just outside Torres del Paine National Park, Patagonia, Chile.

Old tree
Patagonian trees get very old, but don't grow much because of the weather, especially the heavy winds.
This one was seen near Rio Serrano, just outside Torres del Paine National Park, Patagonia, Chile.
