Margaret Tompkins101,687>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Great Photographers With < 25,000 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 < 25,000 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.  Some 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 but please only one.  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!A while back, I had a wonderful discussion about circles with +Robin Griggs Wood and +Charles Lupica .  If you don't know them, then let me introduce you to two of the finest people here on G+!    Charles is a master of monochrome!!  Robin is a master of everything and a mentor to all of us!!  Did you know that she speaks seagull!!   I hope that both Robin and Charles will look you all over and give you a share!  There aren't many quality vetted circles shared on G+.  I'm proud to say that this is one of them!!#Circleshare   #Sharedcircles  2014-02-16 03:26:0247725963163CC G+

Croatian Panorama

I've finally been able to publish a photo after long time, yay! :)

This is the most recent shot I edited from my summer holiday spent in Croatia. The amazing view you can see here is from a vantage point on the road between Split and Rogoznica.

Technically, this is a 6-shots stitched panorama, taken handheld with my Nikon D7000. I had to struggle quite a bit with contrast and exposure on this image because the too bright daylight (the single frames were captured around 11:30 AM) almost screwed up all the details and highlights.

More images to come, stay tuned.. It's good to be back ;)

My photographic holiday is over.

I'm sad to announce that yesterday I got the bayonet-mount of my main lens broken. I still don't know how it happened, nor I know if I will be able to repair it or I will have to re-buy the entire lens..

The most important fact now is that my camera is not usable :(

I have a 70-300mm zoom lens with me at the moment, but it will be most likely of no use. It's all landscapes/seascapes here, I need a wide lens!

I will post a couple shots of the bayonet-mount later, and will keep you informed.

Bye for now.

Holidays

Just arrived at the holiday apartment in Split (Croatia), and I happily found out there's internet connection here! Yay!

I will be in Croatia until August, 22nd.. I hope I will get the chance to take some nice photos :)

I'm sorry if I disappeared for such a long time (almost 2 months now), but I've been, and kinda still am, under a heavy load of life and work-related stuff! :)

Life seem to turn to the right side lately: I'm very happy with my new job and many positive things are happening.. I'm so glad of it, obviously, but I hope to be able to come back here to interact with all of you, like before!

I still have so many RAW shots to process, I've just started to give them a initial look.. I will try to post something as soon as possible, promise :)

Stay tuned, see you soon.

Victory
Square Colosseum, EUR, Roma (Italy)

2-minutes long exposure of one of the four equestrian sculptures representing the Dioscuri (the two mythical Greek heroes, sons of Zeus and Leda), located at the four corners of the Square Colosseum in EUR district, Rome.

Thanks to +Luca Cesari and +Michael Diblicek for their great advices and supervision :)

Into Darkness
Trinità Dei Monti, Roma, Italy

Another image from the Rome Workshop led by +Luca Cesari and +Michael Diblicek.

This time I wasn't satisfied by the result of the shot itself (I did imagine something different, unfortunately it was almost raining and the light didn't help me out..), so I decided to process it in a totally different way.

As you can see the final result is a kind of silhouette image, with strong contrasts and cloud streaks (~90 seconds exposure at f/16, with a 13-stops ND filter).

Oh btw, guess what? The shot was taken at 1 pm! :P

Perpetual Motion
Piazza di Spagna, Rome, Italy.

During the amazing LE workshop in Rome, I had the chance to experiment with some motion blur (a technique I had never tried before) under the wise supervision of the instructors +Luca Cesari and +Michael Diblicek.

I must confess I had fun while taking the series of shots from which this image comes from, together with my workshop colleagues +Charles Paul Azzopardi and +Matteo Pedalà.. Just a few minutes later we had to dash off due to rain drops! :) 

This shot was taken from the famous Spanish Steps just above Piazza Di Spagna in Rome, Italy.
I chose to call it "Perpetual Motion" because of the endless passage of tourists across this well-known square, at any hour of the day (and most of the night as well!)

Curved Light | Archistracts III

London, UK.


Third image in my archistracts series, and the second one in which I tried to enhance the dark tones and eliminate any distraction (inspired by +Julia Anna Gospodarou's breathtaking Ode to Black series).

Someone may have already recognised the subject of this image, the City Hall designed by architect Norman Foster (headquarters of the Greater London Authority). It is located near the Tower Bridge, on the south bank of the river Thames in London, UK.

Side note: I'm processing the shots taken during the amazing 3-days workshop in Rome led by +Luca Cesari and +Michael Diblicek. I hope I will have something ready soon. Stay tuned :)

Dark Geometry I | Archistracts II


Inspired by +Julia Anna Gospodarou, +Joel Tjintjelaar and +John Kosmopoulos's great works, my intention is to create a series of images where the simple beauty of geometry in architecture is the subject.

I worked for quite some time on this photo to enhance and emphasize its geometrical shapes and lines, that's why I decided to play with a mix of light/shadows and strong contrasts.

My very first idea was to take some long exposures, in order to capture the cloud streaks in the sky. Unfortunately that day it was all gray and dull, so I went for normal shots instead of LE.
In post-processing I opted for a pure black sky to eliminate any distraction.

Even if this is the first image I processed in this way (and the technique is still very embryonic), I like how it came out!

Extraordinary experience!

I truly want to thank +Luca Cesari and +Michael Diblicek (also known as Professor Sticklicek..) for the amazing and instructive 3 days of workshop here in Rome!

I had so much fun with you and I could learn so many things about Architectural Long Exposures, Motion Blur shots and Time Lapses!

Both of you are GREAT instructors :-)

It doesn't happen very often to have a permit to use tripods to photograph some of the most famous monuments in the world (the Colosseum, Trevi's fountain, the Pantheon, the Square Colosseum and so on)! It was a real privilege, and another reason to thank you.

This workshop also gave me the chance to meet two other great photographers and now friends, +Charles Paul Azzopardi and +Matteo Pedalà. It was really nice to meet you guys!

Pathway To The Sky | Archistracts I

First image of a series of Archistracts (Architectural Abstract Images, idea and name created by +John Kosmopoulos) taken in London, UK.

This is the colored version, I'm working on a B&W one as well. I will probably publish it sooner or later.

Me on top of the Shard - Behind The Scenes
The Shard, London, UK

You know I don't usually post photos of me or behind the scenes shots, but I particularly liked this one.

It was taken by my girlfriend with her Samsung Galaxy S3 smartphone, while we were on top of The Shard (currently the highest skyscraper in Europe) during our latest trip to London.

No need to say that the view from the panoramic floor on top of The Shard is breathtaking.. Totally worth the quite expensive (30 pounds/each) ticket!

I'm processing the photos, I will try to publish something very soon. Stay tuned :)

Sony World Photography Awards - Exhibition
Somerset House, London, UK
 
As promised to my good friend +Julia Anna Gospodarou (shortlisted in the Architecture category), yesterday I went to the SWPA Exhibition at Somerset House here in London.
Ok, yes, I'm in London till Monday evening, but I couldn't say anything before now because it was a surprise for my sister's birthday! She lives in London and she IS on Google+ :P

It was an amazing exhibition, with so many wonderful photos hanging all over the walls of the West Wing (you can get more information here: http://www.worldphoto.org/worldphotolondon/exhibitions/).
 
It's a pity that only the winner, 2nd place and 3rd place's artists were showcased.. Shortlisted photos were just looping through a TV monitor in a corner.
 
I really wanted to admire Julia's work printed out!:)... more »

Bigger Cover Photo!

I finally decided to update my profile to the big cover photo layout (yes, I was still using the separated scrapbook images!)

What do you think about my new cover? Do you like it? Does it show up well?

I'm still struggling against G+ to have my cover photo in the exact aspect I uploaded it. Actually it should be a bit sharper (like in the original format), but I think I'm at a good point.

I also used the suggested max size (i.e. 2120x1192 pixels) but it seems G+ is still cropping/resizing it to 2048x1152px, making it a bit less crisp grrrr..

Any idea? Thank you in advance :)

UPDATE: I tried to re-size the original photo in Photoshop CS5 by saving it directly to 2048x1152px, but it seems G+ is still cropping/re-adjusting it! Unbelievable :P

I-AM-SPEECHLESS

Big news today: my first interview ever went live!

I am really honored and I want to thank my friend +Kami Naru and her blog (located at http://photoartists-united.blogspot.it) for the interest in my photographies!

I must admit it took me some hours to answer all the questions, since it was my first time with this kind of things. I hope that what I wrote makes any sense :P

Thank you again Kami, you really made my day!

The Gherkin and the Moon
30 St Mary Axe, London, UK

This is a re-processing of one of my old architectural shots from London.
I wanted to give it a try with Nik's Silver Efex Pro 2 (which I didn't use at the time) and it came out quite well I think :)

The subject is obviously the well-known 30 St Mary Axe skyscraper (formerly Swiss Re Building and informally called The Gherkin by people, for its curious shape), one of the most famous buildings in London.

I cannot wait to go back there!

Positano Beach in B&W
Positano, Costiera Amalfitana, Italy

This is the B&W version of a photo I posted quite some time ago, from my little trip to the fabulous Amalfi Coast in 2012.

Technically it is a 6-images stitched panorama taken handheld, and then converted to B&W using Nik's Silver Efex Pro 2.

Tuscan Panorama
Val D'Orcia, Tuscany, Italy

This is a 6-images stitched panorama (handheld) of the wonderful Val D'Orcia in Tuscany, Italy.

The little town on top of the hill in the right part of the photo is Pienza, considered the "touchstone of Renaissance urbanism" and declared a World Heritage Site in 1996 by UNESCO.

STOLEN CAMERA GEAR!

One of my biggest fears came into reality yesterday.


My camera bag, full of almost everything I own has been stolen. (except for a 200€ flashgun I accidentally left at home).

It all happened while I was having lunch, at 2 o’clock in the afternoon in a small bar in the city center of Milan. My backpack was between my chair (which I never left) and a solid concrete wall; I still can’t believe they succeeded in taking that cumbersome 10+kg backpack without me even noticing. 
Side note – just to give you a smile: I was drinking still water at the time.

It’s pretty hard to get insured if you’re not a professional here in Italy, so no chance of getting ANY money back.

Just below my personal information you will find a list of the stolen items; some are definitely uncommon like my infra red converted 5D MKII(their are n... more »

Red Passion | Smoky Lines IV

4th image in my Smoky Lines series. This time I chose Red as main color.

A bit late for Valentine's Day, but nevermind :)

Flowing Chaos | Smoky Lines III

This is the third photo in my Smoky Lines series. I particularly liked the defined curves and lines of the right half of the image which evolve into pure chaos in the left half.

The Face | Smoky Lines II

At first I didn't spot it.

Then, while processing the photo, I began to see this happy face made of smoke. It seems like it was portrayed from a side view.

Can you see it or my mind is playing tricks with me? :)

Liquid Smoke | Smoky Lines series I

Many of you will agree that this is something totally different from what I usually do. I happened to see some amazing smoke photography shots around the net, so I decided to give it a try :)

Following a couple video tutorials on youtube, I built my "studio set" to take the photos: black paper background + 2 off-camera flashes positioned to the sides of the smoke source (the traditional incense sticks!) and wirelessly triggered by my D7000).

This is the first image of a series I decided to call Smoky Lines, others will follow as soon as I process them (I have like 700 RAW shots to be processed yet :P)

Suggestions and advices are more than welcome, since this was my first attempt ever in smoke photography!

Sea of Clouds
Rocca D'Orcia, Tuscany, Italy.

This is the strange but dreamy view I found at my window, during my recent trip to Tuscany.
I chose the B&W processing because it seemed to fit very well the mood of this cloudscape :)

Sunset over Tuscan hills
Hills near Siena, Tuscany, Italy.

I was driving to Siena when I happened to look at the rear-view mirror and got a glimpse of a wonderful sunset over the hills. I had to pull over my car and take some shots! :)

In post-processing I tried to use low values for hdr corrections (composed in Photomatix with 3 RAW exposures at -2,0,+2), in order to keep the photo as real as I could.
Obviously I enhanced some colors in LR, but overall the result is almost the same as the sunset I was admiring that day!

Leading Lines

Shame on me!
I've been so busy during the last 36-48 hours that I totally forgot to submit MY contribution to the #MonochromeMonday theme (curated by +Charles Lupica +Hans Berendsen +Jerry Johnson and also guest curated this week by me)!
Since I live in West Alaska (j/k), it's still Monday and thus I'm still on time to contribute :P

Jokes apart, this is the new modern building which encloses the ancient Ara Pacis in Rome, in order to preserve and protect it.
I've chosen the details of the ceiling because I love its leading lines and geometry.

On the edge

A solitary diver almost jumping off.

This is an old shot I took in summer 2008 but re-processed in late 2011.

Siena At Dusk
Piazza Del Campo, Siena, Italy.

After a long walk I was very lucky to arrive in Piazza Del Campo at the perfect moment, so I could capture the awesome dusk colors of this famous square!

This is a stitched panorama of 6 RAW shots taken handheld. For this panorama I decided to follow another way than usual: I "pre-processed" the 6 photos in Adobe Lightroom to reduce the noise and the lens distortion before stitching them together, then I post-processed the resulting image in LR (again) to enhance colors and contrast a bit.

I must admit that I liked this new process and the result very much. I will use it again for all my future panoramas :)

Flaming Sky
Rocca D'Orcia, Tuscany, Italy.

After a period of inactivity (my apologies!) it seems I'm able again to post some new photos, yay!

The one below is from my most recent trip to Tuscany, Italy. I had the chance to admire and capture this breathtaking sunset and its silhouettes. Colors weren't altered in post-processing, as you can see they were truly amazing!

More photos will come soon, stay tuned :)

New Filters and Backpack

My apologies if I haven't been much active lately (last month or so), but I could hardly find any spare time to log in here. Job and some other stuff I'm taking care of kept me away from internet almost at all!

I didn't have the time to properly test my new D7000 even! :)

Plus, I was still waiting for some equipment I ordered weeks ago. Now that everything has arrived, I'm much happier :D

As you can see in the photo, I just received my new ND/CPL/UV filters, a shutter release timer and a backpack to carry all of it. I figured I didn't have a bag for the new camera, so I decided to buy that amazing backpack (Lowepro Vertex 200 AW).

About the filters, a HUGE thank you goes to my friend +Julia Anna Gospodarou who gave me great advices and suggestions on what to buy, and bore all my silly... more »

It's here!

Santa has come early this year, for me. In fact, my new Nikon D7000 is finally here, yay! :)

I haven't received all the ND/CPL/UV filters and remote shutter releases yet, but some of the new equipment is already here, as you can see in the photo.

The battery is already charging, but I cannot wait to try all the stuff, believe me! :)

Sorry for the low-quality photo, but it was taken with my samsung galaxy s2 smartphone :P

16'000 followers!

Today is a BIG day for me, since I've just reached the extraordinary goal of 16'000 followers here on g+!

Honestly I would have never expected such a huge number of followers, when I first joined this amazing community.

I have met many many great people and friends so far (you're so many, so I'm intentionally not mentioning anyone because I don't want someone to be offended if I forget to mention him/her :P), and I'm sure many others will come.. That's why I want to thank every single one of you who is following me.

THANK YOU!

If you want to stop by to leave a comment, to introduce you (especially for the newcomers) or just to say hello, feel free to do it! You're most welcome here :)

Thank you again my friends!
