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 July 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting June 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2014-08-19 10:17:32177000CC G+

Dubie Bacino99,863ENGAGERS CIRCLE - Curated by +Dubie Bacino (10th Edition)This is a circle of truly amazing and creative individuals. Most people are the ones I've been interacting with for years here and on other social networks, mixed in with some new friends I've made recently. All people here are very active on Google+ and worth adding to your circles. They come from different countries and backgrounds, some of them are bloggers and social media professionals, others are artists, musicians, writers, photographers… They are not a shy group by any means. All you have to do is reach out and most of them will reciprocate the engagement. 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.

Gailen Mapes66,819Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  T-V - 12 of 30Note: 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 July 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting June 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2014-08-12 10:29:55113317CC G+

Red Tailed Hawk

I was looking to see if the mail had arrived this morning and I found a visitor in my driveway.  Photo taken through the front door glass - I could tell it wasn't going to hang around long!  I got 4 shots off and he flew off to a tree across the street.

Album Sharing Project - Day 12

#albumshare   #albumreshare  

I have been thinking for a while about this project.  I goes like this:

I've been around here since pretty much the beginning and I have a whole bunch of pictures in various albums.  I'm sure that there are a lot of others in the same situation.  

Some of those albums haven't seen a lot of traffic lately.  Not because they are bad or really old, but because they are so far down in the pile that nobody visits them anymore.

So let's share them again.  I invite you to take a look through these albums, and if you like the pictures, hit that old "+1" button or share them or whatever.

And if this sounds like a great idea to you too, join me.  Share your older albumsand tag th... more »

Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  L - 18 of 30

Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.           

These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity). 

Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to July 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting June 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."

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

Feeling Lonely?

Give this a try!

Monthly Reminder How to Get RECENT Posts in Your Stream

Yes, time again to share this tip.  Tonight my stream stuck for an hour with only my friends Katy and Mary up top, and very occasional new posts.  When this happens I have a routine that works to get posts from all my circles, not just the ones Google+ thinks should be "Best Of" or Hot. Normally I get about 50 to 150 posts an hour.  Tonight I was getting about 25 so I knew that Google+ was filtering again.  Hope this tip helps someone.  I've posted several times previously about this. I'm back up to the REAL activity level again now but I've had to do this over and over especially in the last week.

1.  Enter a slash in the search field like so: /
2. Click Enter/Return on keyboard or the search icon
3. A top header  will become a wide, deep blue bar with headings.
4. Next to More click the down arrow
5. Now select "From Your Circles"
6. Lastly, look to the left side of the blue bar and select Most Recent___Feeling Lonely?

Give this a try!

I just Shared the Following

+Jeremy Cowart has published a PDF about his photographer's toolkit.  It's free and you can get a copy at http://books.noisetrade.com/jeremycowart/photographers-toolkit   It's well worth reading except for his statement that G+ is a "ghost town."  I had to refute that so I wrote the following.  I hope I didn't embarrass my friend Jasbir.  If I did, I am sorry...

+Jeremy Cowart - I've been paging through your "jeremy_cowart_toolkit" PDF and have to drop you a line...

First off, thanks!  It's really fun to see what the pros use.

I shoot Nikon (D800E and D7000) and mostly use old manual glass.  It's a hoot, but then I'm not under any pressure to perform except "feeding the beast" here on G+.

I shoot Nikon (D800E and D7000) and mostly use old manual glass.  It's a hoot, but then I'm not under any pressure to perform except "feeding the beast" here on G+.

Which brings up my main reason for writing.  I see you have almost 1.5 million followers, and your recent posts are getting about 30 to 70 "plus."  I on the other hand have "almost" 67K followers (G+ keeps dropping old profiles and it't been taking me forever to hit 67K) and get (according to +CircleCount) an average of 6 comments and 42 plusses per post - which includes my daily circle shares which typically get few comments or plusses.

I know some other amateurs like the incredible +Jasbir S. Randhawa who gets an average 21 comments, 4 reshares and 61 plusses per post.  He only has 36K followers as of this morning.

So you see, G+ is not a ghost town.  The interaction you get is in direct proportion to the work you put into it.  Jasbir works harder at it than I do... he's also a better photographer in a target rich environment.  (I am so jealous!)  He gets the interaction.  My circle shares get me followers.

So I've got a couple of suggestions if you want to get out of the G+ interaction back alley and onto the main street...

First - post your pictures - at least one per day to G+.  You can turn off the download feature if you are worried about that.  I have.

But posting your work here means that you are really here.  Reposting blog posts forces people off of G+ to read them and I for one very seldom do it.  In fact if more than 50% of a photographer's content is blog reposts, I drop them no matter how fantastic they are.  Your work is fantastic, I would love to follow you and promote you... but you get the idea...

Second - follow other people.  I can't see how many people you follow.  You might be following others...  But I see no interaction.  Once again you reap what you sow.  So share a circle or two of folks you admire on a regular basis.  You don't have to go all super-circle-ninja like I have, but you get the idea.

Also on this note, from time to time reshare posts from folks that you think are interesting.  Particularly newcomers and folks with only a few followers.  Use your 1.5 million bully pulpit to help others.  They will love you forever.  :-)

Third - stick around and interact.  Take a look at the posts of people you follow.  You will not be able to get all of them.  Are you kidding?  I doubt I get 1%!  But I try and at least hit "+" on the stuff that tickles my fancy.  If it's really really good I will leave a comment.  I think Jasbir leaves a lot more comments than I do and that may be a major part of his popularity.  You reap... oh, you get the idea.

So that's it.  Be here.  Interact.  Promote.  You will lose the ghost town feeling in no time!___

Album Sharing Project - Day 8

#albumshare  

I have been thinking for a while about this project.  I goes like this:

I've been around here since pretty much the beginning and I have a whole bunch of pictures in various albums.  I'm sure that there are a lot of others in the same situation.  

Some of those albums haven't seen a lot of traffic lately.  Not because they are bad or really old, but because they are so far down in the pile that nobody visits them anymore.

So let's share them again.  I invite you to take a look through these albums, and if you like the pictures, hit that old "+1" button or share them or whatever.

And if this sounds like a great idea to you too, join me.  Share your older albumsand tag t... more »

Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  A-C - 14 of 30

Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.           

These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity). 

Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to July 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting June 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 yourprofile bef... more »

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

Edith Kukla's Friends Circle

This looks to be well curated and a great place to start.  Enjoy!

Two friends remind me to share my circles, to promote the pages, their owner and curators. It´s a hard work day by day to promote all the wonderful work of you.

Thank you so much dear +Rinus Bakker and dear +Jean-Louis LAURENCE !

Included are photopages, their owner and curators. They all use only the share button. Pages with photos downloaded of the www. or wallpapers are NOT INCLUDED. Profiles with suspect photopostings  -  means post the work from others without credits or processed by others - are NOT INCLUDED. Not included are profiles who post sexistic or pornographic material. All the pages and profiles in this circle  are absolutely reputable and clean. And all are my friends.

You may add them to your circles, if you want a beautiful and interesting stream. 

And please help me to spread the beauty :-)))___Edith Kukla's Friends Circle

This looks to be well curated and a great place to start.  Enjoy!

Some of those albums haven't seen a lot of traffic lately.  Not because they are bad or really old, but because they are so far down in the pile that nobody visits them anymore.

So let's share them again.  I invite you to take a look through these albums, and if you like the pictures, hit that old "+1" button or share them or whatever.

In the mean time: enjoy!

Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  N-Q - 9 of 30

Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.           

These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).       

Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to July 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting June 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 onyour profile b... more »

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
