Gailen Mapes15,900Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera L-Q - 9 of 14Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. I have had to split some circles because they exceeded 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 October 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting September 15th.)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/about2012-10-09 10:55:313091445CC G+

Will you be near St Louis Missouri next Saturday, March 29?
The St Louis Camera Club is hosting an all day seminar with photographer Sam Abell.

Here is a link http://www.stlcameraclub.com/Seminar/2014-Photography-Seminar.php

The seminar is all day and costs $25.00 (including lunch!).  The rate is so good because Canon sponsors the seminar!

There is still plenty room for you to sign up and spend a day with this National Geographic Photographer and Canon Explorer of Light. Check out the video interview (below the seminar info on the Camera Club web page) if you haven’t seen it and then register for the Seminar. It will be a well-spent $25 which includes a FREE lunch.
Sam Abell St Louis Camera Club Seminar

Registration closes end of day on Tuesday.

Minneapolis Photo Opportunities?

This image was not from Minneapolis (actually Yellowstone Park) but I am planning on going to Minneapolis this week-end.  I will have some time to explore and photograph the downtown area (on foot) Saturday and Sunday morning.

Are there any Google+ folks out there who could share places I might want to check out and photograph?

I have heard a lot about the downtown area and I am really looking forward to my visit!  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I spent a lot of time working on images this week-end in Adobe Lightroom.  This is a great tool and I seem to learn something new about it every time I use it.  Here is a really interesting post from Tom Shue on what the sliders in Lightroom (Version 4) are really doing.  Home others find it interesting too!

I heard a good NPR radio report this morning on Columbus Indiana.  A really great place to go to work on architectural photography!  

This image was one I took a couple of months ago in Columbus.

Here is a link to Susan Stamberg's report.

I have a friend who has a DSLR with the dreaded Nikon "ERR" message in the top screen.  I thought this was an interesting way to get to the bottom of the problem.
I can't imagine what happens next!
Thanks kong07234 on YouTube for posting.
I hope all my photo friends will enjoy this!

Years ago I took a shot in a glade in Lake Tahoe. I always loved the shot, but technically it was awful (out of focus, grain, etc). Doing a little work on it brings it back to life (in my mind).

This image is from South Africa 4 years ago.

Here is a question -- what technique do people use to save and re-post theme pages and curators. This is something I am going to refer to a lot and there must be an easier way than to type in the info each post.
I know one can type in a "+" and Google+ will bring up some alternatives but this process is time consuming. Any shortcuts?

I found the Behind the Lens Critique Group and I would like to receive some critique on this image. Thanks in advance. This can be a good forum for obtaining some constructive criticism!

I wanted to share an image that I took in South Africa May 2011. The +African Tuesday group should be an interesting collection of photographers!

I Have been inspired By +Ray Bilcliff and the +Paintography images.
Here is an image I just created using the Oil Painting filter in CS6 (I cannot seem to get Pixel Bender working in CS6).
Am I getting close -- +Ray Bilcliff ?

Can someone please explain to me how Google+ handles my requests to not allow downloading of my images?
I have my profile "Allow Viewers to Download Photos" set as unchecked, When I test this after updating the profile, I can still download the jpg files.
What am I missing?
I figure that someone out there has already figured this out so your input would be greatly appreciated!

A couple of months ago, I was shooting at a stream in Pennsylvania, near Carlisle. Nothing like fast flowing water to create some (I think) interesting images.

I saw a really good leopard image by +Angelika Ritter this morning which made me think of fond memories from Kruger Park. This leopard image was taken by me during a visit in May 2012 on the Western side of the park.
I have not found a Google + stream for African wildlife images -- any suggestions?

I spent a terrific week-end in Columbus Indiana taking photographs of the architectural wonders all over town. This is an image from the North Christian Church which was designed by Eero Saarinen. Beautiful design both inside and out! I will post some additional images in my Columbus Indiana album.
