Lotus Carroll1,771,482This is the Event for our September 2013 Self Portrait Challenge: A Great Cell Phone Photo.

It makes a huge difference! Is there junk in the room behind you? If yes, it's not a good place to shoot. ETC.*DO NOT just slap a filter or cheesy effect on and call it a day - take the time to try different edits and pay attention to the elements of your photo. *DO NOT point your phone at a mirror and take a reflection photo where we can see your phone.*DO NOT have your arms in the photo as you're holding the phone out in front of or above you.*DO NOT duckface.*DO NOT showcase your cleavage as the main subject.Here's a list of Photo Apps you can try out:SnapseedVSCOcamRetouch (cloning tool!)Camera+Camera!PhotoStudioPixlr ExpressAviaryInsPhotoPrizes1 Year of +September Self Portrait Challenge: A Great Cell Phone Photo2013-09-01 07:00:00180

Gailen Mapes69,907Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera F-H - 25 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 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 #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 +2014-10-25 11:06:00204001

Does my head in to think 4 times more people want to see my posts. Thank you all so very much for your support! There was so much engagement this fortnight that I couldn't fit you all in this circle. I have given priority to the sharers of my work and my very best engagers.This circle has been carefully selected by myself. It includes a selection of people who have made my page a community and a joy to be a part of. Thank you so much to each one of you. I hope you get the followers you deserve!This circle is shared every 5000 new followers which is approx. every fortnight.To be included in any future circles...○ Well, unlike many other circle shares. There is no sharing +1, or comment requirement.○ These people are genuine engagers of my content. They Circled me, reshared, commented, or added me to their own Circle shares. They have brought so much life to this page and inspire me to keep on shooting...○ I guess the above is a hint ;)If you add this circle....○ I'm sure these people will bring life to your page too!○ Please do support them as they support you by resharing this circle to public, your circles and extended circles.○ And don't forget to check out their profiles and engage with their content too ;)○ It's a great way to get people who appreciate great content, and Photographers who crave engagement to meet!If you were not in this circle and feel you should have been...○ Sorry!!! You guys all ROCK! but there are too many to share○ Your best bet is continue to engage and reshare my work.

Dubie Bacino107,050Inspiring on Google+ Curated by +Dubie Bacino (12th Edition)This is the circle I go to when I find myself in need of beauty and inspiration. It's made mainly of photographers, but also other people who I find post intriguing, provoking, and inspiring content. This is a very colorful group. One thing they have in common, besides me, is engaging content that will enhance your Google+ experience. -----------------------------------------When it comes to #CircleSharing, my practice is to share only two of my circles every month:  - ENGAGERS: this is a way of saying thank you to those who have interacted with me in some way (either by plussing, commenting, and/or sharing my posts, or by participating in my communities), and- INSPIRING: mainly photographers, but also other people who I find post original and interesting content.To get into my circles is real simple: either engage with my posts, or keep sharing quality content. If you want me to notice you, be active in one or all of my communities (see below).To connect with me -@Opajdara, the best place is my xeeme page: http://xeeme.com/opajdara or http://www.opajdara.com/ -----------------------------------------MY PAGES AND COMMUNITIES(Feel free to join if any of the topics interest you)FRIEND FILERIf you need more shared circles, check out the ones posted by +Friend Filer. If what you are looking for is to grow your audience, expand your reach on Google+ and connect with people on other social networks, I also recommend joining their community at http://bit.ly/1f6AUpH.MOON PHOTOGRAPHYTake a look at +Moonipulations, it's the place for all Moon lovers.

I hope you get the followers you deserve!This circle is shared every 5000 new followers which is approx. every fortnight.To be included in any future circles...○ Well, unlike many other circle shares. There is no sharing +1, or comment requirement.○ These people are genuine engagers of my content. They Circled me, reshared, commented, or added me to their own Circle shares. They have brought so much life to this page and inspire me to keep on shooting...○ I guess the above is a hint ;)If you add this circle....○ I'm sure these people will bring life to your page too!○ Please do support them as they support you by resharing this circle to public, your circles and extended circles.○ And don't forget to check out their profiles and engage with their content too ;)○ It's a great way to get people who appreciate great content, and Photographers who crave engagement to meet!If you were not in this circle and feel you should have been...○ Sorry!!!

Peter From75,672The Pixativity Pro/Amateur Photographer's Circle | September 2014Time to share the SEPTEMBER Edition of the PAC. As usual, I have sifted through each and every feed and I can promise a very interesting circle. Wonderful people taking wonderful photos. Add the circle right away! :)I will announce the theme contest winners in my feed tomorrow.If you want to be a part of the next PAC, please follow the guidelines as stated below.This Is How To Do It (a.k.a. The Rules, a.k.a. The Guidelines)Now, remember that you HAVE to comply with ALL the rules or I will ignore your request. I want that to be as clear as crystal. I put a lot of time and effort into this lil' project and I want to keep things as efficient as possible. Please help me by complying with the rules.1. PLUS & RESHARE this post. You help yourself and your fellow photographers by spreading the word.2. ADD the  CIRCLE to your circles. 3. Please ADD A FEW WORDS about the field of photography that you are into when you ask for inclusion. That will help me immensely when I compile the next circle.4. Please TAG a few fellow photographers that you think should have the opportunity to be in the circle as well. Please limit your choice of photographers to a maximum of five persons.5. Please do NOT add external or internal links to albums, websites, blogs etc. in the comments. This post is neither the right place for advertisement nor for spam. Thanks. I will check your feed anyway, be sure of that. :) Not complying with this rule results in your comment being deleted. Multiple offenders will be blocked.6. Premium & Lifetime Members of the Pixativity Photographer's Directory website are automatically included in the circle. Feel free to reshare this post though. (How to obtain a Premium or Lifetime account to the PPD can be found here: http://maps.pixativity.com/join/).7. Please do NOT use the comments to thank people who tagged you. Do that in their feed or your own feed. I need all the comment space that there is for requests. This Month's ThemeWill be announced in the next Announcement Post.The RestIf I do NOT add you to the circle there's always a reason for that.1) You do not mainly share your own original work in your feed.2) You are a web marketeer, SEO-specialist etc.3) I did not like the mix of your feed (yeah, I know, it's a very subjective thing to create circles like this).4) I just missed your comment of some reason – mistakes happen, I am only human.Another thing: I cannot add everybody in one circle but be assured that I check ALL feeds and you are always welcome to ask for inclusion in the next edition of the PAC.How do I know if you added me to the circle?You don't. You will find out once the circle is being released. Asking me in the comments will render no answer. :)Release DateThe next circle will be released end of October. Now, let's make this month's NEW PAC another success story. :) Get on with the resharing.Cheers!2014-10-08 09:13:23411141318

Gailen Mapes68,083Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera F-H - 25 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 September 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting August 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 +2014-09-25 10:32:18192234

The Pixativity Pro/Amateur Photographer's Circle | August 2014

I have decided to re-shape this popular circle to make it even better and more interesting. There are quite a few changes so I recommend you to read the whole post before asking for inclusion.

Two things are very important: 1. You MUST comply EXACTLY by the rules as stated below OR you will NOT be added to the circle. 2. Do NOT use the comments for ANYTHING else than asking for inclusion as stated in this post.

I will skip the history of the previous circles since everybody knows it by now (if you don't and actually do want to inform yourself, check out any of my earlier circle posts).

One of the new things with the PAC (that is how I refer to this circle) is that I have decided to include themes and a challenge to go with that theme every time I release an announcement post (such as... more »

If you want to be a part of the next PAC, please follow the guidelines as stated below.

This Is How To Do It (a.k.a. The Rules, a.k.a. The Guidelines)

Now, remember that you HAVE to comply with ALL the rules or I will ignore your request. I want that to be as clear as crystal. I put a lot of time and effort into this lil' project and I want to keep things as efficient as possible. Please help me by complying with the rules.

In The Early Morning Light

In the early morning light
I see the stars in your eyes
The moon is leaving with the night
and the sun is returning to the skies

I feel the rhythm of your heartbeat
I still see your smile in the distance
The dream is slowly fading away
Light fighting down my resistance

What if life could be different
in the early morning light
What if our love could be real
in the early morning light

The moon has left the heavens
and the stars are becoming fainter
The dream is fading away with the night
in the early morning light

In the early morning light...

––Peter From

This poem is dedicated to a very special person...

Have a great day everybody... :)

Summer Road

In essence, 
breath and bone; 
light fingers tracing 
gray stone; 
lichen like a soft dream 
in a parched barren land. 
And on my hand, one gentle 
rainbowed droplet forms. 

Against impossible blues 
and the bordered quilting 
of a consecrated earth, 
made for the hard word and 
the curlew’s call; all gaiety 
slipping into wild abandon - 
voice on voice and note 
layered on tone. 

Wander from the ribbonned road 
stand on peaks to see 
the sudden death of land 
and sea, on cliff. 
Hold the western sun, 
in prismed light reflected 
detected in the last twist of 
the homeward path. 

Taunting, flaunting, 
reciprocal desires. 
Denying and blessing 
the latitude extended. 
Leasing a green plot For the red lantern –

The Winners of the Pixativity PAC September Challenge: TRUE LOVE

Due to a misfortunate error from me, I earlier announced a winner who entered a picture to the challenge that did not belong to him/her. She/he had ripped it off from the web. I apologize for my sloppiness and have decided to announce a new winner and runner ups. I assure you that I will do my best not to commit the same mistake again.

Time to announce the winners of the September PAC challenge (again) but first of all, let me thank everybody for participating. I hard a hard time choosing the winners and it was great fun browsing through all the contest entries. Well done everybody!

The Winners

The winner is +Saji Saju with a picture without a title. Nevertheless it's a great picture with light one could kill for. I really like it. It is TRUE LOVE. Congrats Saji!

The winner is +Saji Saju with a picture without a title. Nevertheless it's a great picture with light one could kill for. I really like it. It is TRUE LOVE. Congrats Saji!

First runner up is +Elvira Kühl with a picture named "Without Words". It caught my eye immediately. Again, wonderful light and true love shines at me. Wonderful! Congrats Elvira!

The second runner up comes from +Sachintha Gurudeniya and is named "Lost in Love". It's a picture that says it all. Congrats Sachintha!

Now, remember that you HAVE to comply with ALL the rules or I will ignore your request. I want that to be as clear as crystal. I put a lot of time and effort into this lil' project and I want to keep things as efficient as possible. Please help me by complying with the rules.

1. PLUS & RESHARE this post. You help yourself and your fellow photographers by spreading the word.

2. ADD the  CIRCLE to your circles. 

3. Please ADD A FEW WORDS about the field of photography that you are into when you ask for inclusion. That will help me immensely when I compile the next circle.

4. Please TAG a few fellow photographers that you think should have the opportunity to be in the circle as well. Please limit your choice of photographers to a maximum of five persons.

5. Please do NOT add external or internal links to albums, websites, blogs etc. in the comments. This post is neither the right place for advertisement nor for spam. Thanks. I will check your feed anyway, be sure of that. :) Not complying with this rule results in your comment being deleted. Multiple offenders will be blocked.

6. Premium & Lifetime Members of the Pixativity Photographer's Directory website are automatically included in the circle. Feel free to reshare this post though. (How to obtain a Premium or Lifetime account to the PPD can be found here: http://maps.pixativity.com/join/).

7. Please do NOT use the comments to thank people who tagged you. Do that in their feed or your own feed. I need all the comment space that there is for requests. 

This Month's Theme

Will be announced in the next Announcement Post.

The Rest

If I do NOT add you to the circle there's always a reason for that.
1) You do not mainly share your own original work in your feed.
2) You are a web marketeer, SEO-specialist etc.
3) I did not like the mix of your feed (yeah, I know, it's a very subjective thing to create circles like this).
4) I just missed your comment of some reason – mistakes happen, I am only human.

Another thing: I cannot add everybody in one circle but be assured that I check ALL feeds and you are always welcome to ask for inclusion in the next edition of the PAC.

How do I know if you added me to the circle?

You don't. You will find out once the circle is being released. Asking me in the comments will render no answer. :)

Release Date

The next circle will be released end of October. 

Now, let's make this month's NEW PAC another success story. :) Get on with the resharing.

Cheers!___

God's Forgotten Land

There's no rain or snow in this forgotten land
Where the evils of man play in the land of sand
Pain and tears of red you will never forget
A maniac is the one who wagered this diabolical bet
Return home with the curse of MacBeth
With each life you've taken you have made your own death
Memories will cause you to weep and to cringe
Hands forever seen with a crimson twinge
All because of a madman crying his lies
Soon you'll be driven to suicide
And with each spent bullet shell
You've saved your place in the pits of hell!
This is my last letter to you
I'm a monster, no longer the man you knew
I'll never be able to forgive from within
And I'm condemned to a life of sin.

Under The Northern Light

When in the twinkling of an eye,
From palpable obscurity
Tumultuous streams of glory gushed,
Ten thousand thousand rainbows rushed
And revelled through the boundless sky,
In jousting, flashing radiancy.
Careering around the welkin's brim
Like bright embattled Seraphim;
Or soaring up to the dome of Night,
Flooding the Milky-way with light;
Or streaming down on the mountain peaks,
On the muirland wastes, and the heather brakes;
On lake and river, on tower and tree,
Showering a sky-born galaxy,
Like a storm of pearls and diamonds driven,
Imbued with the gorgeous hues of heaven!

––David Vedder

Have a great day everybody! Maybe it's time to head out for some fishing? :)

And he knows it all too well

He comes and goes, he comes and goes
And he knows it all too well
But when all is said and done
The sun goes down, the sun goes down
The sun goes down, the sun goes down

And she tries her best to leave him
But she is still captured by his spell
And she knows now she must deceive him
And he knows it all too well

She comes and goes, she comes and goes
And he knows it all too well
But when all is said and done
The sun goes down, the sun goes down
The sun goes down, the sun goes down

When the Sun Goes Down

There is a demon among us
Whose soul belongs in hell
Sent here to redeem us
And he knows it all too well

He comes and goes, he comes and goes
And he knows it all too well
But when all is said and done
The sun goes down, the sun goes down
The sun goes down, the sun goes down

And she tries her best to leave him
But she is still captured by his spell
And she knows now she must deceive him
And he knows it all too well

She comes and goes, she comes and goes
And he knows it all too well
But when all is said and done
The sun goes down, the sun goes down
The sun goes down, the sun goes down

Thin Lizzy - The Sun Goes Down Lyrics | MetroLyrics

Have a great week everybody... Fall came to Sweden yesterday and it's storming and raining outside... :) Hope you still have sunshine where ever you are.

Fading Dream

I am weary of loving the things that don’t stay.
All loved and trusted, then passing away.
Tired of withering dreams, now all gone.
Yearning and waiting for new dreams to come.


The flowers I love will wither and fold.
Only to die faster the harder I hold.
I am weary so weary, of lost love and tears.
Withering sadly in the fast coming years


Longing to sleep in a place without dreams.
Where all ever remains and endless light beams.
Though for a while my sad heart may sigh.
A new love and joy will come by and by.

––Jude Kyrie

Have a great Wednesday everybody! :)

Fly Away With Me

Far from the world we see 
Where time stands still, 
And we can hear the angels sing! 

Fly away with me over the rainbow,
Let my love overflow 
Reflect on you and glow! 

Together we can reach the stars 
Heart to heart,   
Where only love so deep so true can rise. 

Fly away with me together 
On wings of love we can glide, 
The sun and the moon will be our hide out 
Way above this world of doubts to paradise! 

How my soul longs and my heart desires, 
To take you there and show you love 
Like you have never known. 

Fly away with me to this land of no return 
Where my heart yearns to be with you endlessly, 
Dreams become real soul mates 
Can reach their divine destiny.

Under the Clouds

I bind the Sun's throne with a burning zone,
         And the Moon's with a girdle of pearl;
The volcanoes are dim, and the stars reel and swim,
         When the whirlwinds my banner unfurl.
From cape to cape, with a bridge-like shape,
         Over a torrent sea,
Sunbeam-proof, I hang like a roof,
         The mountains its columns be.
The triumphal arch through which I march
         With hurricane, fire, and snow,
When the Powers of the air are chained to my chair,
         Is the million-coloured bow;
The sphere-fire above its soft colours wove,
         While the moist Earth was laughing below.

   I am the daughter of Earth and Water,
         And the nursling of the Sky;
I pass through the pores of the ocean and shores;
        I change, but I cannot die.

For after the rain when with never a stain
         The pavilion of Heaven is bare,
And the winds and sunbeams with their convex gleams
         Build up the blue dome of air,
I silently laugh at my own cenotaph,
         And out of the caverns of rain,
Like a child from the womb, like a ghost from the tomb,
         I arise and unbuild it again.

The Pixativity Pro/Amateur Photographer's Circle | September 2014

READ THE WHOLE POST BEFORE YOU ASK FOR INCLUSION

The August circle was a great success and I really loved to combine the usual circle sharing with a challenge. There were so many great and creative black & white photos and it was really hard to pick only three winners. Thanks everybody for participating!

Now, let's get down to the PAC info... :)

I have, as you know by now, re-shaped this popular circle to make it even better and more interesting. There are quite a few changes so I recommend you to read the whole post before asking for inclusion.

The Pixativity Pro/Amateur Photographer's Circle | September 2014

READ THE WHOLE POST BEFORE YOU ASK FOR INCLUSION

The August circle was a great success and I really loved to combine the usual circle sharing with a challenge. There were so many great and creative black & white photos and it was really hard to pick only three winners. Thanks everybody for participating!

Now, let's get down to the PAC info... :)

I have, as you know by now, re-shaped this popular circle to make it even better and more interesting. There are quite a few changes so I recommend you to read the whole post before asking for inclusion.

Two things are very important: 1. You MUST comply EXACTLY by the rules as stated below OR you will NOT be added to the circle. 2. Do NOT use the comments for ANYTHING else than asking for inclusion as stated in this post.

I will skip the history of the previous circles since everybody knows it by now (if you don't and actually do want to inform yourself, check out any of my earlier circle posts).

One of the new things with the PAC (that is how I refer to this circle) is that I have decided to include themes and a challenge to go with that theme every time I post an announcement post (such as this one). As I then release the circle, I will announce three winning persons which in turn will receive a FREE spot (value USD 9,95, not to mention all the extra invaluable exposure that comes with that) in the Pixativity Photographer's Directory here: http://maps.pixativity.com.

This Is How To Do It (a.k.a. The Rules, a.k.a. The Guidelines)

Now, remember that you HAVE to comply with ALL the rules or I will ignore your request. I want that to be as clear as crystal. I put a lot of time and effort into this growing project and I want to keep things as efficient as possible. Please help me by complying with the rules.

1. PLUS & RESHARE this post. You help yourself and your fellow photographers by spreading the word. If the re-share is not to be found in your feed when I compile the circle, I won't add you to it.

2. ADD the +Pixativity Google+ Page to your circles. Why? Because that is where all additional info will be posted and you need to be able to see the notifications from there when I release the circle. (You need NOT add me, that is fully optional... :))

3. Please ADD A FEW WORDS about the field of photography that you are into when you ask for inclusion. That will help me immensely when I compile the circle.

4. Please TAG a few fellow photographers that you think should have the opportunity to be in the circle as well. Please limit your choice of photographers to a maximum of five persons.

5. Please do NOT add external or internal links to albums, websites, blogs etc. in the comments. This post is neither the right place for advertisement nor for spam. Thanks. I will check your feed anyway, be sure of that. :) The only link I accept is to your theme contest entry if you decide to participate. Not complying with this rule results in your comment being deleted. Multiple offenders will be blocked.

6. Premium & Lifetime Members of the Pixativity Photographer's Directory website are automatically included in the circle. Feel free to reshare this post though. (How to obtain a Premium or Lifetime account to the PPD can be found here: http://maps.pixativity.com/join/).

7. Please do NOT use the comments to thank people who tagged you. Do that in their feed or your own feed. I need all the comment space that there is. 

This Month's PAC Challenge Theme

The theme I have chosen is TRUE LOVE. You don't have to participate in the theme challenge if you don't want to, just skip to the next section, but if you do, post a link to your entry along with your request for inclusion in the PAC in the comments and I will have a look at your picture. NO pictures from communities! Your entry must be posted publicly in your personal feed. Do NOT post links to the Lightbox View – I know how to view a picture.

Tag you entry with PixativitySeptemberChallenge using a # so that everybody can enjoy your beautiful shots.

When I release the circle, I will announce the three winners, post their images here in my feed, on the +Pixativity page, on the +Photoshop Tutorials page and, of course, on the Pixativity webpage. Each winner will receive an ONE YEAR FREE listing in the Pixativity Photographer's Directory.

Please note: Only one entry per month is allowed. You can only enter with your own original work and you must have the full copyright. You may enter an old picture and you agree to that I will post your image on the Pixativity website and the above mentioned feeds if you are one of the winners. You may not enter the challenge alone, it's for circle applicants only.

The Rest

If I do NOT add you to the circle there's always a reason for that.
1) You do not mainly share your own original work in your feed.
2) You are a web marketeer, SEO-specialist etc.
3) I did not like the mix of your feed (yeah, I know, it's a very subjective thing to create circles like this).
4) I just missed your comment of some reason – mistakes happen, I am only human.

Another thing: I cannot add everybody in one circle but be assured that I check ALL feeds and you are always welcome to ask for inclusion in the next edition of the PAC.

How do I know if you added me to the circle?

You don't. You will find out once the circle is being released. Asking me in the comments will render no answer. :)

Release Date

The circle will be released end of September. 

Now, let's make this month's NEW PAC another success story. :) Get on with the resharing.

Cheers!___

Foggy Forest

The fog  effect in this picture was created following the steps of the tutorial I added to Pixativity today. As you see, you can get really realistic scenes using this technique. I chose to add both background fog and some ground fog to achieve a picture with a mysterious atmosphere. Try it out yourself, it's easy and done in less than five minutes.

Peter’s Secrets 3: Create a Foggy Atmosphere in a Few Simple Steps

As many of you may have noticed, I often enhance foggy pictures using a couple of Photoshop tricks to get the most out of the atmosphere. Sometimes there is not enough fog (if any at all) and I quickly want to change that to get a picture with more mood and atmosphere. In this tutorial I will show you a trick that always works and the best of it all, you don’t have to be a Photoshop genius to create pictures like the ones you see in my feed in no time at all.

How To Get YOUR Picture To The Popular Section’s First Page On 500px.com

Many of you have asked me (and continuously do) how I manage to get so many of my pictures onto the first page of the 500px.com Popular Section so I decided to recycle and update an article I wrote last year and publish it again here on Pixativity. To the question posed, of course, there is no easy answer. But there are things you can do to increase your chances of reaching the top positions over at the 500px Pop Page. I have had some 50 pictures on the first page and 8 pictures going all the way to number one spot from the approximately 140+ pictures I have uploaded there. To that could be added that most other images reached page 3 or 2 and that all my images ended up in the Popular Section. But let’s concentrate on how to reach that desired first page in this post.

Dreams In The Fog

The fog is an illusion—
A master of disguise, 
Which hides the tangible
Before our very eyes.

But when the fog has lifted
Everything’s still there, 
And the tangible
Only seemed to’ve disappeared.

In the early morning
Or late at night, 
The fog descends
Upon various sites.

It gives an air of mystery
That has long prevailed. 
Dangerously intriguing
Is the fog’s foggy veil.

There's something about fog that intrigues me. Everything looks different when the fog sets in. The landscape, the light, everything. Wouldn't you agree?

That Old Shoe

Once someone wore that shoe.
Looking closer at it, it doesn’t look that bad. It’s a pretty shoe.
I wonder for how long it has been laying around there in rain and sunshine, and maybe even in snow…
How did it end up where I found it?
Who wore that shoe?
Where is she now?

Google Can Help Protect Images On Google+

Last year I was part of a community (one of the moderators) on Google+ (Photo Sharing | Fighting Copyright Infringement) where the idea is to try to educate people about image copyright issues. One day one of the community members, +Spyros Papaspyropoulos, came up with an interesting idea on how Google actually can help protect people’s images on their own Google+ platform, hence this article.

King of the Wild Forest

I have been away from Google+ for a while since I have moved to a new place. I sold my big house and now rent another house instead. That makes me the King of the New Wild Forest. Of course, only in  the sense that I will be shooting in new areas of the same old forest. :) Like the tiger in the picture, I will be hunting, not prey, but new fresh locations for my photography. That'll be fun. 

Have a great week everybody! :))

In The Distance

To love at a distance can be torturous, as you always desire closeness to your beloved. But closeness and distance are not only physical definitions of space but also how we understand our heart. So while the physical distance between us may be great, that space may always be small within the heart. Holding close to the ones we love and trusting in that steadfastness can calm our hearts and soothe our minds no matter how far the physical distance between us. While loving another from far away may be difficult, faith in our love may keep us strong.

Have a wonderful Thursday... :)

Dreaming Of The Milky Way

The universe is so vast. Our galaxy, the Milky Way, is just one of billions and billions of galaxies. There are more stars in the known universe than there are grains of sand on earth. It's hard to imagine that we are alone. Why should we be? What lies beyond the Universe that we can see with our telescopes today? Are there more universes? Or is it just empty black space going on forever into infinity? We will never know... I guess no one will ever know... But I will be dreaming of the Milky Way tonight. Travelling to the edge of the Universe and back...

Have a wonderful Wednesday everybody... :))

Illusion Scene 36 Covering My Work

I was surprized when Christopher Smail from Illusion Scene 360 (a Webby-nominated online magazine that features amazing creations in art, photography, tattoo, design, and cinema) contacted me and wanted to do a piece for their e-zine with a few of my latest images. I agreed and here's the article:

http://illusion.scene360.com/art/66278/fantasy-castle-floating-on-waves/

Go check it out. :)

While you're at it, go add +Scene 360 to your circles as well. Their feed is top notch and it's no wonder that they boast a 2,5M+ followership.

Into The Crescent Moon

I want to fly away with you to the crescent moon
We wouldn't come back anytime soon
I would kiss you gently under the stars
While we watch the ascent of the beautiful Mars
Come fly with me
Come stay with me
On the tip of the crescent moon
Come kiss me
Make love to me
From midnight to noon
Let us fly away to the crescent moon
Let us not come back anytime soon...

––Peter From

Like good old Mr. Nikolai Tesla once said:

"Modern science says: 'The sun is the past, the earth is the present, the moon is the future.' From an incandescent mass we have originated, and into a frozen mass we shall turn. Merciless is the law of nature, and rapidly and irresistibly we are drawn to our doom."

How very true that is. Have a great day everybody! :)

When The Sun Says Good-Bye

Every beautiful day comes to an end. The same goes for many other things in life. Sometimes the darkness wins over the light and you must say good-bye to someone that is very dear to you. "Life goes on", "The sun will rise again tomorrow" and "See it all from the bright side" are words easily spoken from friends and loved ones but they don't mend a broken heart. When the sun sets, it kisses the day good-bye and leaves the sky to the moon. Surely, the sun will be back tomorrow, but it will shine differently and the day that is just to begin will be another.

The memories from yesterday are what's left. The smiles and the laughters you once took for granted are but echoes in your mind. You stand alone with an aching heart and an empty soul, thinking of all the things that went wrong.

Pixativity –– More Under The Hood

The past week I have been doing some upgrading on the Pixativity website, both system- and design-wise. I think you all will like the improvements in technique, design and speed. The frontpage got itself a facelift, there’s a Newsletter feature (it comes with EXCLUSIVE FREE stuff for subscribers), more features in the Control Panel (the CP is Premium and Lifetime members only) and much more.

The Colors Of Nature

People love sunrise and sunset pictures, that is a simple fact. Check Google+, 500px, Flickr or any other social network and the majority of all images are of sunrises or sunsets. I have contributed my share of the colorful image pollution to the web, that's for sure. But sunrises and sunsets are so easy to shoot and with all the smartphones around, there will be a lot more orange, yellow, red and purple in people's feeds.

Here are a few of my sunrises and sunsets, shot all around the globe (well, almost). Have a great Sunday, keep shooting colorful skies and enjoy my pictures... :)

Cheers!

Updated: The Peter From Creative Donations License For Pictures

Through the years many people have used my pictures without asking for permission first. Not everybody does that with ulterior motives in mind but nevertheless my images are being used without due credit to me. I can’t do much about that but at least I can ask for some honesty. It’s flattering that so many people (and companies) like my pictures and artwork but it’s frustrating to see them scattered around the web without back-links and with the copyright notice stripped away. I appreciate normal social media sharing using the Share button where credits stay intact and you can see who originally shared the image (the copyright holder), it’s the irregular downloading, screen-shooting, cropping away watermarks, re-formatting etc. I turn myself against.

Google+ Is Not A Lonely Road

Maybe some of you remember that my profile (or, more correctly, items in my feed) here passed the 100 million views mark exactly two weeks ago (on July 31). Curious as I am, I wanted to have a closer look at what has happened stats-wise since then.

My posts now has had 108,180,075 views in total, i.e. another 8 million plus during the two weeks. Let's break these 8,180,075 views into views per day, hour, minute and second. 

If I did my math right, my posts has had 585,291 views per day. That in turn makes 24,345 views per hour, 405 views per minute, or if you like, almost 7 views per second the past two weeks. That's pretty cool. Thank you all for popping by!

I am truly a sucker for statistics. In fact, I love to compete. Not so much with others but with myself. Every day I ride the bicycle for some 12 kilometers, always trying to beat my best time. If I do something in Photoshop, I want it to be better than the last piece I did and so on. I think you get the drift. :) It's the same with Google+. I want to deliver the best pictures I am capable of doing – every single day.

Having thought a few minutes about my view count here, I think it's safe to state that Google+ is no lonely road... At least not for me.

Have a great day everybody!

Peter’s Secrets 2: Remove Ugly White Edge Halos

Time for the second episode of my workflow secrets. This time I want to talk about sharpening and the ugly white halos you almost always get as a result around trees, building edges etc. Most amateur photographers (and, heck some pro’s too) don’t either care about them or they don’t know how to easily remove them (some don’t even take notice of the halos). I have seen many well edited pictures that still has those ugly edge halos in them and I have seen even more pictures that are over-edited and sharpened to the other side of the universe. It’s not nice and to me that’s a big no-no. There are a few simple steps you can take to get rid of those ugly things and in this article I am going to give you a few of my treasured secret tips so that you don’t have to make that mistake ever again.

The Love For Moonscapes

I love the moon... Being a Cancerian, I am also governed by the Moon. Each time when a full moon occurs, I get a knee ache and I feel a bit like a werewolf... I get restless and want to get out in the night... :)

One thing's for sure... The moon is beautiful and I love to do artwork including our closest celestial neighbour...

Enjoy this series and let me know what YOU think... Both of the moon and my pictures...

Cheers!

In The Silent Night

Silent, silent night,
Quench the holy light
Of thy torches bright;

For possessed of Day
Thousand spirits stray
That sweet joys betray.

Why should joys be sweet
Used with deceit,
Nor with sorrows meet?

But an honest joy
Does itself destroy
For a harlot coy. 

––William Blake

Have a wonderful weekend everybody!

Urban Exploration In Stockholm, Sweden

Urban Exploration is something that intrigues many photographers and you have seen many UrbEx pictures in advertising, cd-covers, book-covers and so forth. There is something about old abandoned places in decay, may it be buildings, car cemeteries or shipyards. Walking around in such places with a camera (and sometimes with models as well) almost takes you back in time. It’s a cool and pretty weird feeling...

Waxholm Fortress

Vaxholm Fortress is a historic fortification on an island in the Stockholm archipelago just east of the Swedish village of Vaxholm. In 1970, it was used as a movie location for the pirate stronghold in Pippi in the South Seas. A scenic view of the castle may be seen from the car ferry which plies the short distance between Vaxholm and the island Rindö.

The fortress was originally constructed by Gustav Vasa in 1544 to defend Stockholm against shipborne attacks from the east, but most of the current structure dates from 1833-1863. Russian prisoners-of-war were used in part to build the fortress. The stretch of water below the building was formerly the main sea route to Stockholm. Thus, the fortress was strategically situated to defend the city from naval attacks. It was attacked by the Danes in 1612 and the Russian navy in 1719. Since the mid 19th century, its... more »

Since the mid 19th century, its military importance has ceased. So weak had the fort become that it was said the great Prussian Field Marshal Von Moltke was only ever seen to smile twice. Once when they told him his mother-in-law was dead and again when he saw Vaxholm Fort. Today, it is home to the Swedish National Museum of Coastal Defence.

Have a great Friday everybody!

6 Myths About Copyright Debunked

Many people seem to think that the Internet is like the Wild West of the 1850's. Information in any shape or form is free for all and no rules what so ever exist. Well... In the Wildest of the West there were Sheriffs and you could be hanged for less than stealing someone's property. That's right, even if using other people's pictures is not technically considered theft, it is a violation of both domestic and international copyright laws. Just because someone parks a beautiful car somewhere and leaves it there for a day or two, doesn't mean that you may take it, even if the keys would still be in the lock. I think most people agree on that. The same straight line of logic applies to pictures posted on the Internet, printed in magazines or elsewhere and/or wherever you may find them. If you don't own it, leave it be. You can't... more »

If you don't own it, leave it be. You can't download, copy or otherwise get hold of an image and then post it where ever you like and on top of that crop it, remove watermarks and pose as you were the original artist. That cannot be too hard to understand –– even if you're only fourteen. Don't "borrow" other people's stuff without asking first. Period. That's all you ever need to know about the current Copyright Laws.

Create Invisible Watermarks Quickly In Photoshop

Having your images stolen and your watermark cropped away isn’t fun, it’s very annoying. Maybe you don’t even want to use a watermark because you think that adding one ruins your pretty picture? In that case, this invisible watermark trick might be exactly what you have been looking for. This one's quicker to apply than the one I showed you earlier...

The Pixativity Pro/Amateur Photographer's Circle | August 2014

I have decided to re-shape this popular circle to make it even better and more interesting. There are quite a few changes so I recommend you to read the whole post before asking for inclusion.

Two things are very important: 1. You MUST comply EXACTLY by the rules as stated below OR you will NOT be added to the circle. 2. Do NOT use the comments for ANYTHING else than asking for inclusion as stated in this post.

I will skip the history of the previous circles since everybody knows it by now (if you don't and actually do want to inform yourself, check out any of my earlier circle posts).

One of the new things with the PAC (that is how I refer to this circle) is that I have decided to include themes and a challenge to go with that theme every time I release an announcement post (such as... more »

The Pixativity Pro/Amateur Photographer's Circle | August 2014

I have decided to re-shape this popular circle to make it even better and more interesting. There are quite a few changes so I recommend you to read the whole post before asking for inclusion.

Two things are very important: 1. You MUST comply EXACTLY by the rules as stated below OR you will NOT be added to the circle. 2. Do NOT use the comments for ANYTHING else than asking for inclusion as stated in this post.

I will skip the history of the previous circles since everybody knows it by now (if you don't and actually do want to inform yourself, check out any of my earlier circle posts).

One of the new things with the PAC (that is how I refer to this circle) is that I have decided to include themes and a challenge to go with that theme every time I release an announcement post (such as this one). As I then release the circle, I will announce three winning persons which in turn will receive a FREE spot (value USD 9,95, not to mention all the extra invaluable exposure that comes with that) in the Pixativity Photographer's Directory here: http://maps.pixativity.com.

This Is How To Do It (a.k.a. The Rules, a.k.a. The Guidelines)

Now, remember that you HAVE to comply with ALL the rules or I will ignore your request. I want that to be as clear as crystal. I put a lot of time and effort into this lil' project and I want to keep things as efficient as possible. Please help me by complying with the rules.

1. PLUS & RESHARE this post. You help yourself and your fellow photographers by spreading the word.

2. ADD the +Pixativity Google+ Page to your circles. Why? Because that is where all additional info will be posted and you need to be able to see the notifications from there when I release the circle. (You need NOT add me, that is fully optional... :))

3. Please ADD A FEW WORDS about the field of photography that you are into when you ask for inclusion. That will help me immensely when I compile the circle.

4. Please TAG a few fellow photographers that you think should have the opportunity to be in the circle as well. Please limit your choice of photographers to a maximum of five persons.

5. Please do NOT add external or internal links to albums, websites, blogs etc. in the comments. This post is neither the right place for advertisement nor for spam. Thanks. I will check your feed anyway, be sure of that. :) The only link I accept is to your theme contest entry if you decide to participate. Not complying with this rule results in your comment being deleted. Multiple offenders will be blocked.

6. Premium & Lifetime Members of the Pixativity Photographer's Directory website are automatically included in the circle. Feel free to reshare this post though. (How to obtain a Premium or Lifetime account to the PPD can be found here: http://maps.pixativity.com/join/).

7. Please do NOT use the comments to thank people who tagged you. Do that in their feed or your own feed. I need all the comment space that there is. 

This Month's Theme

The theme I have chosen is CREATIVE BLACK & WHITE. You don't have to participate in the theme challenge if you don't want to, just skip to the next section, but if you do, post a link to your entry along with your request for inclusion in the PAC in the comments and I will have a look at your picture. NO pictures from communities! Your entry must be posted publicly in your personal feed.

Tag you entry with #pixativityaugustchallenge so that everybody can enjoy your beautiful shots.

When I release the circle, I will announce the three winners, post their images here in my feed, on the +Pixativity page, on the +Photoshop Tutorials page and, of course, on the Pixativity webpage. Each winner will receive an ONE YEAR FREE listing in the Pixativity Photographer's Directory.

Please note: Only one entry per month is allowed. You can only enter with your own original work and you must have the full copyright. You may enter an old picture and you agree to that I will post your image on the Pixativity website if you are one of the winners. You may not enter the challenge alone, it's for circle applicants only.

The Rest

If I do NOT add you to the circle there's always a reason for that.
1) You do not mainly share your own original work in your feed.
2) You are a web marketeer, SEO-specialist etc.
3) I did not like the mix of your feed (yeah, I know, it's a very subjective thing to create circles like this).
4) I just missed your comment of some reason – mistakes happen, I am only human.

Another thing: I cannot add everybody in one circle but be assured that I check ALL feeds and you are always welcome to ask for inclusion in the next edition of the PAC.

How do I know if you added me to the circle?

You don't. You will find out once the circle is being released. Asking me in the comments will render no answer. :)

Release Date

The circle will be released end of August. 

Now, let's make this month's NEW PAC another success story. :) Get on with the resharing.

Cheers!___

Sailing into the Sunset

Dusk is just an illusion because the sun is either above the horizon or below it. And that means that day and night are linked in a way that few things are there cannot be one without the other yet they cannot exist at the same time.

You will find a couple of images like this in my Google+ albums (as well as on 500px and other social networks where I am active) because I have used this technique since the stone age. To be able to follow this article you need this stock image from DeviantArt: Download here. You also need Photoshop CS6 (or another well featured piece of image editing software).
