Ferg Hyde0There seems to be not much in the way of circle sharing these days, certainly nowhere near as much as there was a couple of years ago. What you have here is a circle of Australian photographers. The Best Of The Best Of The  Best in Australia. If you are a photography fan of any sort, you would be Ack Willie not to add this one quick smart. If I have missed any Australian photographers who have hooped me, and I haven't hooped back, please let me know.2013-10-20 08:49:2911211011CC G+

Jeremy Rasnic0Qaulity Photography Circle ShareI have several circles as I like to keep my Google Plus account pretty tidy and organized.  I was looking through my circles doing some clean up and decided to share a circle.  I have never shared a circle prior to now, but seeing how I couldn't find a compelling reason not to, you get this post in your stream :)The circle I am sharing is a a group of active individuals on g+ that I enjoy seeing in my stream for their creativity and quality photography.  They offer inspiration and challenge me to think more critically about my own photography.  The majority post daily and all of them post quality material.  If you are looking for a group of people to add to your g+ stream to liven it up, you may want to consider this one for quality photography.If you think I'm missing out on some good, quality photography, feel free to make some suggestions to me as I'm always open to it.  I have included myself in this circle- not because I think I am of the same caliber as some of these photographers, but because I do post daily and you never know,  some of my photography might surprise you :)Enjoy! #circleshare   #circlesharing   #photographycircles   #photography   #photographerstofollow    2013-09-06 02:42:3739603CC G+
Georges Pauly14,521Thomas HawkShared publicly  -  30 Aug 2013 2500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 2 of 5)This is the fifth time I've shared my photographer's circle on Google+.  I'm going to share it in 5 posts.  Yesterday I shared last name A-Da.  This one , part 2 of 5, today, represents Da-Ho.  I'll share the remaining three next week.  I originally shared my photographers circle at 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 photographers.  I'll probably share it again eventually when it gets to 3,000.A few notes about this circle.The criteria that I look for (and don't always get right) in this circle is that the photographer produce interesting and engaging photography.  I also look for people who are active in the community, post mostly their own work, and post regularly.  I'm looking more for people who post their own work and less of the noise stuff (gifs, links, non-photography, promotions, etc.).  I also like people who are positive, friendly, nice, helpful, etc. and dislike people who are mean, snarky, jerks, disrespectful, etc.I have a pretty well known bias against signatures and watermarks.  You will see very few photographers in my circles who use them.  I really hate the watermark debate and would rather not have it with folks.  I just don't like them -- it's my circle that I have to look at.  There are likely a few folks in here who use them who are friends of mine, but for the most part, this is a pretty watermark free circle.  It's totally cool if you love your watermark, it's just not something I really want to look at.  Please don't hate me for my aesthetic preference.  Finally, the photography community on Google+ is probably the best one on the internet today.  There is no way that I can possibly include all of the fine photographers worth following on G+.  There are wayyyyy too many.  These are just 2,500 that I personally have noticed.  I'm sure I left out some really amazing ones -- like you if you are not in this circle :)  I'll probably also totally kick myself when I realize that I accidentally left out a really obvious good one who may even be a friend of mine -- again, maybe even like you.  :)Stay tuned for parts 3, 4 and 5 and thanks again to all of the great photographers on G+ who make this place such a delight to hang out.Part 1-5:  http://goo.gl/17ujpn*Note, Google Circles are terribly wonky.  It wouldn't let me add some photographers in my circle into these circles because of domain errors.  If this affected you, sorry about that.2013-09-01 19:56:06482204CC G+

Dallas McMillan7,412Circle from the land downunder - Australia's top 200 PlussersWho are Australia's most followed people on Google Plus?I've put together this circle of Australia's top 200 profiles (by follower numbers - not engagement - some aren't particularly active) on Google Plus.It's pretty interesting to see the types of profiles which make the cut.Here is my quick overview:By far the most dominant characteristic of the top 200 are photographers - professional and amateur.The other notable individuals are a couple of cricketers in the top 10, a smattering of celebrity chefs, musicians, writers, artists, models and other celebrities.There are also fair numbers of Google employees, IT workers, social media and marketing types as well as a decent number of scientists and mathematicians. The only politician I noticed was Malcolm Turnbull - the Prime Minister and Leader of the opposition are conspicuous by their absence.I got the list from +CircleCount http://www.circlecount.com/au/profileslist/ and I've made a few tweaks - removing a couple of profiles that were inactive or had moved away from Australia. There were a number of others which probably don't belong as they now work in the USA or elsewhere.  #australia   #australianphotographers   #circleshare  I've notified members of the circle - let me know if you don't want to be listed.2013-08-04 14:24:522009213CC G+

Margaret Tompkins48,891>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Great Photographers With < 10,000 FollowersThe photographers here are all in my personal circles.  The choices are mine and mine alone.  No one asked, begged, or pleaded to belong.  No bribes were offered or accepted.  These are the people that I follow because I appreciate their great quality photography and their interaction.  Most I have met as I help curate several of the photography themes.  There are NO requirements to share this circle.  I would appreciate the people in this circle plus the post, leave a comment, and share the circle as public.  Each profile has been verified by me.  Most have < 10,000 followers (when they were put into the circle).  They each have high quality original photography content.  You won’t find many animated gifs!  I have included myself in the circle and also the landscape page.  Many are fairly new to G+ so please make them feel welcome!!Landscape Photography:  I invite everyone to check out the +Landscape Photography  #LandsacapePhotography theme.  If you want to impress me, that’s the place to do it!!  Post a great landscape that will get my attention.  See the About tab for all the details.I wasn’t included, what do I do?  If you meet the criteria, weren’t included, but think you should be, then leave me a comment.  Maybe I don’t know about you.  There are millions of people on G+ and I don’t know everyone.  However, I’ll be happy to have a look at your work if you will call it to my attention.  Start posting landscapes that get my attention (see above)!!There’s a really great photographer XXX that you didn’t include.  Please feel free to recommend qualified people.  I discover new people every day and would be happy to look at their work.  Please make sure that the recommended person meets the criteria.  If they don’t then that tells me a lot about you!#Circleshare   #Sharedcircles  2013-04-14 22:18:2334135373160CC G+

Walter Soestbergen19,026♦♦♦♦ WS Photographer Circle 3 2/1 ♦♦♦♦The Photographers circle has grown over 600 people so I had to split it up into 2 circles.First circle contains people where firstname started with an A till K . Within some day's circle 2 wil be released!Circle's are there to be shared so help yourself to re-share it and promote yourself and the others in this circle .Who are in this circleLots of great photographers who mainly share their own photo's in their stream and you will like them.Who can join?Everybody. As long as you have a interest in (nature) photography and MAINLY share your own work in your feed.Unfortunally with so many photographers on google plus, the chance to forget somebody is very big. It was never my intention to leave somebody out deliberately.What to do when you want in the circle?just ask here, when you got an +1 you are in next circle.#birds4all #macro4all #birds4all #macro4all #birds4all #macro4all #sharedcircles #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles#circleshare #circlesharing #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles#pixelworld  #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle#thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle  2013-01-04 20:38:05342572555CC G+
Paul Snedden7,059Advance Australia Share - The CircleWOW! What an absolutely overwhelming response I received to my request for your favourite Australians (http://goo.gl/mFLe1). You certainly did deliver.The circle contains a bunch of people who I was already following, but a wealth of freshly undiscovered goodness for me as well. In total, 436 Awesome Aussies waiting to fill your stream with all sorts of goodness.

Gailen Mapes20,645Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera 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 December 15th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting December 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 #circleoftheday2012-12-22 12:46:4824913210CC G+

Clear skies in Sydney this morning so I chased something a bit different. It didn't quite work but worth another visit when the moon is right.

Lighthouse

We all need a lighthouse for our own,
Because it gets so dark I can’t see which way I’m going.
Oh lighthouse man I’m all at sea,
Shine a little lighthouse light on me

My apologies if you commented on or +1'd the previous version of this image that I shared yesterday. It had such horrible banding in the sky that I had to delete it and post it again.

Doing a little research today on the effective reach of my G+, Facebook and Flickr pages/profiles. Some surprising observations that I'm in the middle of creating a blog post about. In the meantime I'm diggin my Flickr profile page today. They've copped a lot of criticism for the design changes they recently imposed on members but I'm in the 'it's all good' camp :)

Macquarie Lighthouse

After Ivo Rowe I headed up to this lighthouse to check out a comp I'd been considering from the south. I ended up on the north side and walked away with this instead :)

out Bathurst way
I only had my old D90 and a cheap kit lens with me on this day but the light as this cloud rolled in over the hiils, on what had been a relatively sunny day, was too good to not try and capture. Not my usual sort of b&w but this has a bit of a 'film' feel about it which I'm quite happy with :)

Sea Cliff Bridge
I am part of this wonderful group of Australian photographers called FOCUS. Yesterday I was struggling with this image and asked for some advice on two squarer crops I was thinking of developing further. The response was overwhelming and I received some great feedback that contributed to this final edit. 
 
So if you are a tog who is looking for a great group to learn and grow with, I couldn’t suggest any better than FOCUS. 

I've made subtle but significant changes to this image in recent days. Latest version here https://www.flickr.com/photos/grant6/13501381904/

Homage
In the 9 months or so since I was first shown these falls by +Ali Sadreddini they have become very popular with photogs and are probably my favourite falls to visit. When the conditions are right, they really are quite spectacular. This was taken mid morning in almost perfect conditions. This weekend I’ve been experimenting with a new approach of taking falls at about 0.6 to 0.8 sec exposure. I like the detail it retains while still giving some softness to the water :)

South Avalon
Looking back through my posts I noticed that I haven't posted a new 'traditional water flowing' type of seascape since August 31, 2013. I've posted a number of reworks but nothing new like this for 6 months.

Perhaps it's because I'm fussy but I find them exceptionally difficult images to capture and do well. This I think, turned out ok :)

It was my intention to have a break for all of January before posting any 'new' images but what the heck, I'll kick the new year off with little something from my recent trip to Victoria. I didn't take many images on this trip but this one came up nicely as a mono :))

10 favourite images of 2013
Happy New Year all. I hope your new year celebrations passed in good spirit amongst friends :) 

A few weeks ago I mentioned taking a break from posting images for most of January but in a reflective moment today I put together this album of my favourite images from 2013. Several of these images have received recognition in award competitions late in 2013 while others are just personal favourites. Narrowing down to just 10 was much harder than I thought and after an initial selection of 25 or so images the culling process began to find my favourite 10. It was  great process and I highly recommend it to you as a reflection tool of where you photography has come from and where it is heading in 2014. Enjoy :)

Sentinel
Amongst the ashes of the recent bush fires in Sydney and NSW, lies this lovely old lighthouse. It stands in contrast to the charred moonscape that currently exists around the top of the Barrenjoey headland it is perched upon. This morning looked like it would be a fairly unproductive one but just after sunrise some nice clouds rolled in and for just a few minutes we had some lovely light burst through. This scene represents a new direction I’m hoping to explore with my images in 2014. I have enjoyed my journey with some strong and bold light this year and will continue to look for these opportunities but there is something about the softer light in these sorts of landscapes that has me quite captivated at present. It’s the beginning of something I hope to develop a bit further next year.

So with this image I am signing off for a while. I’m dedicating January to family,rest,... more »

after the recent bush fires. In contrast to this scene is the lovely gardens and lawn that were preserved at the lighthouse itself. Something from that to follow :)

Cape Solander
This is my third go at processing this image and one that I think I'm finally happy with. The main problem I've had with this image is containing the colours. Non-photographers often say, 'those colours aren't real, the world doesn't look like that'. Of course, many of us play with colour and enhance our images (that is the nature of shooting raw) but on this occasion the colour was so intense it almost looked unnatural. I know I've never seen a sunrise like it before and may never again.

Other raw images I have taken after this one are so golden and intense that I shied away from processing them. Anyway, in this effort I've softened things and just left the intense colour towards the centre of the image (a selective desat of sorts). To me it's a more natural looking image but ultimately not really what was on offer that day.

Hello hope I find you guys well. I've been a bit flat with my photography lately but I'm slowly getting the mojo back. Here's a new one. I really must learn to keep control of those birds that live in my camera bag - they've been getting way too much freedom lately ;-)

Final results in for the International Loupe Awards with 1 Silver and 5 bronze for my efforts. Was close to gold and more silver but happy to have all entries judged as being as of a professional standard of excellence by judges from the UK, US, New Zealand and South Africa.

First results in at the International Loupe Awards and pretty stoked with a high silver (88) in the Open Landscape category. It's rewarding to have my work judged by members of a large panel of international judges http://www.loupeawards.com/judges.php and find that it stacks up with the recent judging of 3 AIPP Grand Masters at the Focus Awards.

Edit: This ended up placing 11th overall in this category. Happy Days! http://www.loupeawards.com/Top50_13.php?CatId=103&Category=Landscape&Award=Open

Last night at the 2013 Focus Awards I was fortunate enough pick up a few awards including:

1st and 2nd place in the Black and White category with $500 worth of prizes
3rd place in the Seascapes category
and a top 5 finalist in Landscapes

To top off the night I placed third in the Photographer of the Year section :)

Earlier this week I was more than happy to have my images judged as being of silver standard by 3 AIPP Grand Masters (Peter Eastway, Tony Hewitt and David Oliver). Last nights results were beyond my hopes for this competition and I’m now looking forward to seeing how some of these images hold up in the International Loupe Awards.

Finally and just because things seemed to be going my way I also picked up a circa 1982 Nikon FG SLR as a lucky door prize! It reminds me of the old Ricoh I bought around that time that served me well for manyy... more »

Very happy with my results in the The National 2013 Focus Awards. This year we have been fortunate to have 3 AIPP Grand Masters judging our work and allocating award standards. What an honour to have our work assessed by Peter Eastway, Tony Hewitt and David Oliver http://focusaward.betterphotography.com/judges.php

Out of 15 images I managed 12 Silver and 2 bronze standard awards. Thanks to the organising committee for making this happen and I’m really looking forward to the awards night this Saturday to see all the finalists work. Great work everyone :)

Thanks as well to Peter Eastway for offering to host the awards using the same award system for the Better Photography awards. Legend :)
