Gailen Mapes72,417Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera S-U - 30 of 31Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. 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 November 7th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting October 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             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2014-11-30 11:33:31198000

DO NOT DELETE THIS SHARE OR YOU WILL BE EXCLUDED FROM NEXT WEEK'S  OR POSSIBLY BLACKLISTED FROM  FOR GOOD4. Optionally, comment to let me know what you have done! (this is optional, because my circles often reach the maximum 500 comments).5. So I can easily find your share, always publicly share my original shared circle. You'll know if you're sharing the original one because you won't see "Jason Levy originally shared" above here. If you do see it, click on "originally shared" and it will bring you to this post.6. Optionally, add everyone from this circle - your Google Plus engagement is likely to skyrocket, as many people in the circle will add you back and plus, share and comment on your posts!~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~I don't wish to offend anyone on the internet, so if you would like to be removed from my shared circles, please send me a private message and I won't share your profile in the future. The only way being shared will affect you is that you will get notifications that people have added you. You are under no obligation to add them back to your circles. If you don't add them back, they will most likely remove you from their circles after some time.~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~@~The ReSound Enzo includes two firsts: It is the first Super Power Made For iPhone hearing aid, and it is also the first MFi hearing aid that includes a telecoil, allowing wearers to take advantage of hands free calling with their iPhone, as well as wireless streaming of music, Facetime and YouTube from their iPhone, iPad, iPad mini, and iPod Touch - as well as listening through public loop induction systems in theatres, banks, post offices and places of worship.Unless you have used this kind of technology before you're probably thinking it's no big deal - after all, you've been able to get Bluetooth headsets for years, but until now you used to need an intermediate wireless device worn as a necklace or lapel clip to translate between Bluetooth and each manufacturer's own proprietary wireless protocol. 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.

Gailen Mapes70,233Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera S-U - 30 of 31NOTE: October 31 will be my last circle share.  I will be taking down my profile this weekend.Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. 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 October 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting September 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             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2014-10-30 10:40:46201002

Gailen Mapes67,208Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera  R-S - 29 of 31Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.  (Because of it's size, this circle will be split next month.)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 August 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting July 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 #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2014-08-29 10:30:45209836

The subtle differences in resharing images (with attribution) on Google+ (long)

(this discussion could just as well be applied to other types of content, but I will focus on images)

Why do you share your images on a Social Network?

For most people, it is a way to tell others about something they care about - a shared experience with their audience. Getting recognition then means you've been successful in communicating this experience to other people. In some sense, it makes you feel like that experience was relevant to others, and generally gives you a positive feeling of "relevance" and "connectedness".

A second group of people share their images because of this, but also as a way to further their professional work. They derive income from people willing to pay (value) some aspect of the shared experience - this aspect... more »

San Giovanni church and the Odle range

This little church is set in the middle of a grass field in the outskirts of Santa Maddalena, in the Dolomiti mountains in Italy. In the background is the imposing Odle mountain range.

Watch out!
This transatlantic looks like it is going to ram into Santa Maria della Salute church, at the entrance of the Canal Grande in Venice. It is actually making a turn to enter the Giudecca channel leading to the port.

Seen from the trail to Baita Segantini refuge, across the valley, in the Italian Dolomites. The Cimon peak on the right at 3.184 m is actually not the highest one; the Vezzana next to it on the left is  8m higher, even if it doesn't seem to be from this point of view.

They derive income from people willing to pay (value) some aspect of the shared experience - this aspect can be  the actual image (your simply enjoy it's aesthetics, or message, etc...), the technical information (you want to learn how to do it), some information "behind the lenses" (you want to know how to get there, when, etc...), some personal contact opportunity (you want to hire them for some assignment), etc... For the sake of discussion, I will call this second group "professionals". This is why you will find many top level professional photographers actively participating in social networks such as Google+, 500px, Flickr, Tsu (who explicitly recongnizes this aspect), 1x, etc... It is fair to say that the Web, and social networks, completly changed the photography market.

The Web economy is driven by "attention", or "eyes". You "social capital" on the Web is diretly related to how many eyes you can reach, and there countless ways in which this gets monetized, directly or indirectly. There are huge fortunes made based on this.

A second type of sharing is of other people's images - resharing. Why do you do it?
A first reason is the same as when you share your own - because you feel that image shares some experience that resonates with you, to the extent that you feel like it is "your own" experience, and deserves sharing.
A second reason is that you want to (also) give the author added recognition - you feel that this author deserves that, and you want your own audience to get to know that artist; you are endorsing in some sense his/her shared experiences to your audience, and by doing so you are also "adding value" to them, and in some sense you end up accruing some additional value in the eyes of your audience.

There are many people, often called curators, who bring value to their audience by selecting and resharing other people's images. Indeed, given the deluge of available images, it is useful to have someone sift through them and select "the best ones" (according to your taste). Some curators never produce any content of their own, they simply share other people's images that they feel their audience will like.
If they are successful in building a large audience this way, they gain "social capital" based on this selection service.
The same way with original content producers, there are some curators who become "professional", in the sense that they derive income from this social capital. Sometimes this is not a direct remuneration; for example, they get paid to provide exposure of some content or service to their audience.

Sharing with attribution is a legitimate thing to do in any social network - it is actually one of the important activities that go on there and one of the reasons for their success. All social networks have a "reshare" function, which makes resharing with attribution a very straightforward thing. How does such sharing make the attribution? By including a direct link from the shared content to the original source. If you click on that shared content, you will see the originally published material, in the author's stream. This way, the "social capital" (link following, views) gets accrued by the original artist. The sharer already accrued some his/her own "social capital" because you are already seeing their post (with the link to the shared original content) - so it's a win-win situation. In fact Tsu, a recent social network, tries to incorporate this model in such a way that you can actually can get paid if the original content you publish is popular.

But what if the content you want ot share is not on the same social network? The "reshare" function does not work! To accommodate this, social networks allow you to include a link to the original image. When you include such a link in a post, most social networks will include a (sometimes large) thumbnail of the image. If you click on the image, you will be taken to the site where that image was posted, presumably the artist's website, blog, etc... Resharing in this fashion preserves the "social capital" of the artist in the same way as resharing within the same social network.

It has become common practice in many social networks (and elsewhere, like in blogs) for people to reshare in yet another way. They download the image to their own stream, and share this copy. Some, aware that they should make an attribution, include a link to the original image as part of the text in the post. So, in some sense, they are giving attribution. But if you click on the shared image, you will still be at the sharer's page/stream, who then gets the "social capital"; the original author never gets any of that. Furthermore, if a third person reshares the shared image (which is a fairly common occurrence in social networks, especially for popular images that become "viral"), any further accrued "social capital" will go to the (first) sharer, and not to the original artist.
It should be noted that, unless they have explicit permission to do this, the sharer is actually violating the copyright of the artist, and almost always also violating the Terms of Service of the social network, which assumes that you upload only material to which you have the copyright. Contrary to popular belief, the fact that some image is available on the Internet does not automatically give you the right to download, copy and republish it.

I realize this may seem a subtle and perhaps unimportant difference, but if you understand the dynamics of the WWW, and how "value" is established, this becomes very relevant. As an example of how this "social capital" can be monetized, consider the proliferation of websites that offer "copyright free" images, e.g. for wallpaper, attracting viewers and benefitting from the generated traffic to sell advertisement space. They often prey on the fact that most artists don't have the means to track every site that has illegally copied their image.

There are many photographers (artists) on the Web, of varying degrees of "professionalism". The vast majority are "non-professionals", in the sense that they don't expect any financial return from sharing their images - simple recognition is enough. For them, the two types of sharing (with attribution!) are not much different, and it makes no difference to them. They are just glad that someone is actually explicitly giving them some form of recognition, even more so if it is some "famous" curator, who may have also shared some image of another photographer that they admire. So for them, it is almost an "honor" to be mentioned/shared in such company, because of the implication that their work, in some sense (or in someone's eye) is of similar or comparable quality. They will object, of course, if there is no attribution of any sort.
If the sharer (curator) gets most of the "social capital" from sharing their images, that's fine, since they don't plan on using this "social capital" for anything. In other words, they don't mind that the sharer benefits from this "social capital", sometimes making money at their expense.

But for those artists who rely on this "social capital" as a way to drive their business, it makes a big difference. For them, the second form of sharing is seen as a way to "steal" their potential "social capital" - the clicks and views that should be accrued to them ends up being accrued to the sharer. 

For these reasons I advocate that the sharing (with attribution) should always by direct inclusion of the link, and never by copying the image to one's own stream.

Alley in Cordes-sur-Ciel, France
This is a lovely village in Southwest France, near Albi and Toulouse. Unfortunately, the weather turned bad as I was arriving, which made me prefer b&w to enhance the stone textures of the houses. You can see the color version of this image here (http://goo.gl/exoPwA), I feel it is much "flatter" and less interesting than this one.
In general, I find that this type of village with stone houses, which abound in Spain, France and Italy, come out much better in b&w, even on a sunny day.

Gullfoss Waterfall, Iceland
One of the most visited, since it is close to Reykjavik. It is very impressive for its sheer size, extension and the multiple falls.
I also did a color version (http://goo.gl/c0ADPB), but I prefer this one - do you agree?

Maybe this has become repetitive after so many picture of this place, but I can't help repeating how awesome it is... and the luck to catch such a great sunset! I hope you enjoy it too!
