Pål Børsting29,203♥♥♥ Thank you circle no.1 of 5 containing Photo enthusiasts!  ♥♥♥ ☀☀ ☀To let you know that I appreciate the +1's. ☀☀☀☀☀☀ All of them handpicked by me. This is the real thing :-) ☀☀☀♥♥ And of course the resharers and commenters are here too. ♥♥Reshare if you like! Please plus to tell me you have seen it! *There is no need to thank me, this is me thanking you! *In this circle you will find both photographers and their followers. What they have in common is a passion for photos they like.This circle consists of the exceptional people who time and time again reshares, plusses and write nice comments on my photo posts. All of them are real active people, some have been active since I began sharing my photos and still are and some I have seen only for a shorter time.I have separated my Thank you circle into four circles. There is no difference between them except for different people to say thank you to.I already work on the next "Thank you circle"  So if you are missing here, you will be in it if you are active from this week. I do not expect you to like all my photos, so please only plus the ones you like! If I see you twice in a months time I will add you.The five circles is collected from middle of January until now. In parallel I am building a new circle that I started a month ago. In a months time the people in the new circle will be shared. The old one will be kept as reference to add people that return after a longer break.  I use  #Circloscope premium to help me manage, but the rotation from the old circle to the new is the only way people gets kicked out. http://www.circloscope.com/2013/04/google-plus-circle-management-tool.html +CircloscopeA bit of caution here, I do NOT check the quality of what my engagers share. They are here since they are appreciating my photos. You have to do your own selection after importing the circles.Please let me know if you somehow slipped through my masks. I am doing this in a combined automatic and manual way and I am old enough too know there might be errors. And there have been errors I have discovered. That is really the only thing that bothers me with this circles……..Have a look at this post for even more info on how this circles is made. https://plus.google.com/115491639983481019768/posts/iuYYSLzSH9G ♥♥♥♥ ☀☀☀☀ ♥♥♥♥ ☀☀☀☀ ♥♥♥♥ ☀☀☀☀♥♥♥♥ ☀☀☀☀  #circle #circles  #publiccircle #circleshare #circlesharing #sharedcircles  #sharedcircle  #sharingcircles  #sharedpubliccircles  #photography 2014-03-19 15:35:234868817144CC G+

Rat Island
China Camp State Park
California

This is a very rare B&W processed image, for me. I decided to process it this way, because I was not happy with the color version; however I wanted to post it as I liked the composition. I used a long exposure to smooth out the waves. I confess that I have a lot to learn when it comes to B&W; however color is by far my personal preference. Besides, there are many extremely talented B&W photographers to admire, here on Google+.

I will return to this location in the very near future, and attempt to capture a good color version of this scene.

Glacier Point – Yosemite National Park
 
I could easily include a very large narrative with this image, describing technical information and the journey it took to be able to complete this shot. While far from technically great, I am very happy that I captured this image during my first attempt to photograph the Milky Way.
 
I have admired this form of photography for a long time, and am now very excited to make this part of my passion. Whether you put little or great effort in to this kind of photography, the adventure and results can be memorable.
 
I decided that I wanted to put great effort into my first shot. After a night and sunrise of shooting, it took about two hours of post-processing to complete an image which came pretty close to what I had envisioned.

At the end of my journey to the other side, I stuck around to photograph the sunrise. However, even though it was now seven hours since I photographed the Milky Way, this was still very much part of that same journey.
 
I stitched three separate shots of the sun rising behind Half Dome to create this image. The three shots used to create this image were also the same three shots used in the making of my previous post. “Journey to the Other Side” was made using a total of eleven shots.

This is the third image I have made using Zerene Stacker software. After improving my technique, I hope to use this software to produce better and more dynamic images. This particular shot was taken during the time I had before getting in to the main reason for this trip, which was more of a scouting and learning mission for a new project.

Typically used during post-processing of macro photography, Zerene image stacking software processes multiple images taken of a single composition to create a completely in-focus output image. Being a Landscape Photographer, I was curious if this…

Spring Lupines – Folsom Lake Recreation Area
 
http://www.davidshieldphotography.com/
 
I photographed this location last year, but due to the completely blank sky I chose not to post any of the images I captured. The sky was not much more interesting on this occasion, but not wanting to go away empty handed I attempted to get a little creative with the available light by composing the scene to include the sun setting behind a background tree.
 
I have just posted a new product review on my website. The review is for software that I do not believe is well known in the landscape photography community. Depending on what kind of subject you photograph, this software could be a great addition to your creative workflow. The software was used to process the lupine sunset image.

Merced River - Yosemite National Park
 
Posting an image of this scene next to one of Hanalei Bay, makes me realize how lucky I am to live in a country that contains such a beautiful and diverse landscape. Just like many places in our world, stress and sadness can be common when experiencing the hassles of modern day life, and knowing of the many tragedies and suffering that occur around the world.  
 
I took this shot last December, and more than anything else, I can remember the absolute peace I felt while witnessing the serene stillness. However, a peek over a shoulder every now and then to make sure there were no restless hungry bears around still seemed to be a good idea at the time.

Hanalei Bay – Kauai
 
This is my third image to post of beautiful Hanalei Bay. This shot was taken from the east side of Hanalei Pier, to include more of the rugged Na Pali Coast cliffs. I wanted to capture the long exposure effects this scene so often allows for, including the streaking clouds after a fast passing storm, and the reflected light enhanced in the moving tide.
 
If photographing beach and island scenes is your thing, then I cannot recommend this area enough. Kauai features amazing and diverse scenery, but just the area between Princeville and Ke’e Beach can provide countless photographic opportunities and memorable experiences.

Hanalei Bay - Kauai 
 
I took this shot during sunrise. Once again it was raining just before dawn; however the storm was now passing, leaving painterly skies over the north shore of Kauai.
 
Wanting to fill the frame; I stood at the edge of the water where the tide was coming in so I could include the foreground surf in the image.

Garrapata State Park – Monterey Peninsula
 
Being in the right place at exactly the right time is so awesome…This was not one of those times.
 
This was something I realized as soon as I arrived at this location. Photographers were everywhere trying to find the right composition. Unfortunately, the lilies were past peak, which meant that many of them had unattractive brown features. I finally chose this composition, and waited. The good thing was the sky was so boring, many of the photographers decided to pack up and leave…The bad thing was the sky was so boring.
 
I focused in on this composition as tightly as I could, just to eliminate the remaining people from the image.
 
When I returned home and viewed my images, I concluded that even though the conditions had resulted in me capturing a fairly uninteresting shot, I thought the composition was OK.Therefore... more »

Hanalei Bay – Kauai – Hawaii
 
http://www.davidshieldphotography.com/  
Even though this was not a photography shooting trip, I was able to find time to go out and shoot during sunrise. The amazingly cool thing was the beach house I was staying at was literally just steps from here, so I would get up early each morning and walk across the rain-soaked lawn to the beach.
 
My intention is to attempt to convey each scene I photograph as originally as possible, so I chose this particular morning to shoot a series of images at thirty seconds each to use for a panorama. The light at Hanalei Bay can be magical, as it was on this particular morning and I wanted to present an image that showcased as much of that light as possible.

I chose the canyon featured in this image to hike because it is well known for vibrant fall color. However, due to last year’s long warmer summer most of the leaves in the canyon had not yet changed. Not wanting to give up, I hiked deeper into the canyon until I found this colorful display.     
 
I waited for the sun to dip below the high canyon walls, so the scene could be photographed in even light.
 
I will be traveling during the next few weeks, exploring options for new workshop locations. I will also be working on another software product review. This is a product that very few of my contacts, (if any) have used. It is especially rare to use this software for landscape photography, so I am both excited and curious to see the results of my tests.

Photographing this view including city lights was not the only image I wanted to capture. Panorama and long exposure photography was also part of the plan. Due to the orientation of the sun, I knew that I would have a better chance of good light during the early morning hours. After shooting a few long exposures just before sunrise, it was now time for the sun to light up part of the city, and I could concentrate my efforts on a panorama image. I waited for different parts of the scene to become illuminated, and then took fourteen separate exposures. Pre-visualizing the shot, I had already attached a Singh-Ray Blue-Gold Intensifying filter to my lens. This was the extra ingredient needed to help enhance the areas of bright sunlight.

All images were photographed at an aperture of f/8. I find that it is critical to keep a constant aperture when shooting panoramic photography. A shutter speed of... more »

I have wanted to photograph this view for about three years. This January I was given a great opportunity to finally capture this view, so I did as much as possible to make the most of my opportunity.  
 
This image was taken from the Mandarin Oriental Hotel. While it would have been ideal to photograph from a rooftop location, I decided that I would be content with setting up for the shot from my room. I used various techniques that are recommended when photographing from behind a glass window. I found the results of these techniques can vary dramatically in different conditions. I would suggest not relying solely on every technical recommendation when shooting in the field, but to perform tests first before determining what works best for your particular shooting situation.

Ice Spiders at Pohono Bridge
 
http://www.davidshieldphotography.com/
 
Thousands of Sierra ice spiders march across the frozen Merced River. The rare ice spiders can only be seen every twelve years, and make the march just once during that winter. According to legend, a single bite from one of the spiders will turn any living thing to ice.
 
This is one of the shots I took on the morning after my Valley View moonlight image. During that morning, I photographed winter scenes from both sides of Pohono Bridge.
 
The funny thing about photographing Yosemite during winter is it can sure bring out a wild and vivid imagination from a visitor! The ice spiders were actually formed after snow has partly melted, then frozen and crystalized on top of the ice.

This image is the result of a very memorable and enjoyable seven hours on Yerba Buena Island. From the moment I parked my car, I started to make new friends. At about 7:00pm, we found one of the popular viewpoints to photograph this scene. By the time the fireworks started there must have been a hundred photographers up on the hill where we stood high above Bay Bridge. The five hours waiting for the fireworks to start passed by quickly as we all spent the time discussing photography techniques.
 
I was anxious to review the images I had captured when I returned home the following day. I looked at several images while trying to decide which one of them I would process. Eventually, I chose four of the images and blended elements from each to create one master image file.

Valley View - Yosemite National Park
 
http://www.davidshieldphotography.com/
 
I visited Yosemite in winter for the first time this month. I have wanted to photograph this scene with snow covered foreground boulders from the moment I saw it, and now after experiencing it, I can say for sure that Yosemite Valley becomes a truly magical place in winter.
 
I knew going in that the forecast called for clear blue skies which was almost a reason for not making the trip. However, one of the shots I envisioned was this scene lit by moonlight, and the moon was a couple of days away from being full.
 
After about three hours of shooting here, I chose this composition to photograph. Valley View was now illuminated by moonlight only. When I finally picked my head up from behind the camera viewfinder, I noticed it was now dark and I was the only one around. It was hard toleav... more »

http://www.davidshieldphotography.com/
 
The third image I am posting of Twin Lakes Falls is this horizontal composition taken at sunrise. Even though this was an ideal scene for vertical orientation, I prefer this horizontal shot which includes water cascading over a large rock slab.   
 
Looking at the similar composition I posted in June gives a great example of how the same scene can be photographed in very different ways. That particular composition was photographed on the previous afternoon, using a 10-stop ND filter.

Austin, Texas

http://www.davidshieldphotography.com

I have resisted posting this image for a long time. This shot was scanned from an 8x10 print, as I have not been able to find the original transparency. The result was a picture with an excessive amount of grain and noise. The only processing completed for this image was attempting to eliminate as much noise as possible. For this, I used both Photoshop and Capture One.

I first attempted to capture this scene at twilight; however I cut my leg badly on a barb-wire fence while setting up my tripod. When I returned to my hotel the girl at the front desk made me sit down in the lobby while she carefully applied first-aid to my leg. At that moment I knew she would be the girl for me.

The next morning I made another attempt to capture this scene. It was several years ago, so all I remember for sure was that I took this... more »

REVIEW JUST POSTED! I will add it to Google+ next!

I was both surprised and honored when Phase One offered to send me their RAW processing software in exchange for a product review. I do not have negative comments about any of the other popular image processing software programs, currently on the market. However, after testing similar processing software, I concluded that Capture One Pro 7 would give me the chance to present the best possible final image. I hope this first review of Capture One will be helpful to anyone currently considering software processing options. 

This image was taken about 30 minutes later than my previous post. For this shot I replaced the two grad filters with a 10-stop filter. With good cloud cover and available light present, I panned my camera to the left, so the scene was centered and shot a long exposure to create the streaking cloud effect.  ... more »

Emerald Bay – Lake Tahoe – California

http://www.davidshieldphotography.com/

I have been to Lake Tahoe many times; however I had never photographed the Emerald Bay view, seen here. This particular visit was not primarily for photography; however after getting up early and seeing the good cloud cover, I got dressed and set out for Emerald Bay. 

I arrived just as the light was good, so I quickly set up at a pullout overlooking this view. I took several images, using Singh-Ray grads, as well as my 10-stop filter. This was the first image I chose to process. For this image, I panned right to include as much sunrise light and color as possible.

I recently received some exciting and unexpected news. I have teamed up with a well-known photographic company, who has asked me to write a review for one of their products. I hope to have the review completed in the nextfew ... more »

Hidden Lake and Bearhat Mountain – Glacier National Park

http://www.davidshieldphotography.com/

This is the image I was most satisfied with taken during my Glacier NP trip. This is because the shot turned out very close to the way I planned it. I wanted to fuse both panorama and long exposure techniques to present this sweeping view, while keeping the light as even as possible throughout the scene. The sky is not perfect; however the final image is very close to the way I witnessed it.

After attaching my B+W 10-stop filter, I could not see through the viewfinder, presenting a challenge to compose each shot properly. Choosing to shoot horizontally while over-compensating for image overlap resulted in a technically sound panorama. Shooting vertically would not only have been more challenging, but would have also resulted in a noticeably bowed image.

Swiftcurrent Lake - Glacier National Park

http://www.davidshieldphotography.com

This is the second of three images shot at Swiftcurrent Lake, that I am adding to my website. I am used to being satisfied with being able to take home just one shot of a particular scene; however lately I have been trying harder to capture multiple shots of the same view. My intention is to capture images that portray the same scene in a completely different way. To do this, I attempt different styles of photography, which include panorama format, long exposure photography and a standard single exposure. Of course, time and conditions do not always allow for multiple captures; however on this occasion, shooting this scene at sunset and sunrise allowed me to use each technique.

I have heard people say that it is better to find one photography technique you like; learn it, be good at it and stick... more »

Swiftcurrent Lake - Glacier National Park 

http://www.davidshieldphotography.com

The Many Glacier area of Glacier National Park is one of my favorite areas in the Park. I could easily spend a week there hiking the trails, being wowed by the grizzlies and enjoying some of the comforts available at the grand Many Glacier Hotel.

On this particular morning one of those comforts cost me. I camped down the road from the hotel, and woke up early to shoot sunrise at Swiftcurrent Lake. The sky was completely grey and overcast, which probably explained why I was the only photographer at the lake on a weekend morning, in August.

A little after sunrise (if there would have been one) I decided to walk to the hotel and buy a cappuccino. As I began to take a sip of my sweet warm beverage, I looked out the Great Room window. To my amazement, the sun had broken through the... more »

Hidden Lake and Bearhat Mountain - Glacier National Park

http://www.davidshieldphotography.com/

This summer I completed eight fantastic weeks leading workshops for students, at the Parks & Rec. Department. I have been doing this since 2006, starting in Bend, Oregon. Thanks to digital, increasingly more teens are becoming interested in photography. Since that first year, the focus has gone from pop bands and love-life, to wanting to learn about photography.

The downside is I have completed just one photo shoot this entire year. Therefore, I decided to head out to Glacier National Park for a few days. Although it was an amazing time, I was generally disappointed with the images I captured. However, there is one image that came out as planned, which I will post later.

I will try to comment catch-up as quickly as I can.

Slow Motion Falls
Twin Lakes - Mammoth Lakes - Eastern Sierras

http://www.davidshieldphotography.com/

Even though I was just scouting this view at the time, I could not leave here without taking a shot.  I envisioned vertical orientation for this scene; however a horizontal composition would include more of the top of the falls. Therefore, I decided to attach my B&W 110 filter, and attempt a long exposure. My intention was to add a surreal effect to this daytime capture, by turning the waterfall into slow motion mist.

Tumbling Toward Sunrise
Twin Lakes – Mammoth Lakes – Eastern Sierras

http://www.davidshieldphotography.com/

I enjoy the challenge of shooting iconic scenes; however I arrived early for this trip with the intention of looking for something new to shoot. Once in Mammoth Lakes, I decided to drive up Lake Mary Road. I stopped at several places and scouted each location.

When I arrived at the Twin Falls Parking Lot, I knew that I wanted to shoot here. I hiked up and down both sides of the water fall; however I chose this spot at the very top of the falls, to shoot from.

When I returned home, I looked on both Flickr and Google+ for an image of this view. So far I have only found just a few shots taken from this vantage point. I will post a horizontal version of this shot, but for now I am posting a vertical, as this looked to be the most natural orientation toshoo... more »

Evening Light at Garrapata
Garrapata State Park – Monterey Peninsula

http://www.davidshieldphotography.com/

This second image featuring part of Monterey’s highly scenic rugged coastline was captured minutes earlier than my previous post. The light was muted in the previous post, and therefore, it made sense to compose for a tighter view, showcasing the rocky texture and detail of the arch.  For this shot, I zoomed out so the emphasis of the image would focus more on the scene’s warm evening light and larger expansive view.

Guardian of Time
Garrapata State Park – Monterey Peninsula

http://www.davidshieldphotography.com/

This is one of my favorite coast views, and has been on my short, short list of places to photograph for about two years. After weather conditions have caused me to cancel several trips this year, I finally noticed a favorable forecast for this particular weekend. However, the partly cloudy skies that were forecast, decided to cancel last minute, and I was left with clear skies and increasing coastal fog.
Refusing to give up, I decided to try something different with this scene. The tide was high; however the ocean was unusually calm, displaying debris in the foreground water. To eliminate this, I decided to set my camera to f/16, and obtain as long of an exposure as possible. Fog and mist typically do not suit long exposures; however as I had already committed to this plan Id... more »

Inflating the Colors

http://www.davidshieldphotography.com

There is just something different about this image when comparing it to my previous post, but I cannot quite figure it out.

OK, seriously; I am so much more excited to work with color.

To get this shot, I had to step inside of the balloon, while it was being inflated. I wanted to get as close as possible to the canvas, so I could capture as much of the design and color detail, as possible. 

I recently made the decision to try other RAW software programs, and see if I could improve my workflow and output results. This particular image was processed using a 60-day trial version of Capture One Pro 7.

The image was taken during a hot air ballon festival held at Piedmont Park, in Atlanta, Georgia.

City in Motion B&W
Downtown Seattle

I am intrigued with the concept of processing evening and night time city scenes in B&W. I like the way the bright mono toned lights contrast with the dark areas, especially the building lights.

I am currently experimenting with different RAW software programs, and this was the particular processed version I liked best.

This view of the Seattle Skyline was taken from the dirt road behind Jose Rizal Park, located in Beacon Hill.

St. Mary Falls
Glacier National Park
Montana

This was taken several years ago, around the time I first realized what effect long exposures could have in a waterfall scene. I was still learning technique (obviously), and have to laugh at myself now. For, as you can see; I went a little overboard on the exposure. As I used a polarizer for this image, and set my aperture to f/22, the resulting shutter speed was 8 seconds. A good deal of the water in this image is noticeably hot (over-exposed). As part of my personal shooting style is to produce fairly high contrast impact images, I thought it would be a good time to present this shot.

This is a very rare B&W processed image, for me. I decided to process it this way, because I was not happy with the color version; however I wanted to post it as I liked the composition. I used a long exposure to smooth out the waves. I confess that I have a lot to learn when it comes to B&W; however color is by far my personal preference. Besides, there are many extremely talented B&W photographers to admire, here on Google+.

I will return to this location in the very near future, and attempt to capture a good color version of this scene.

Mt. Banner & Mt. Ritter
Ediza Lake
Ansel Adams Wilderness

A little further into the wilderness than my previous post, and the scenery becomes even more prestine. I began this hike at the Agnew Meadows trailhead, located in Mammoth Lakes. The hike follows the Shadow Lake Drainage up to Shadow Lake. From here, hikers must decide which one of the much sought after destinations to continue to. While both Garnet and 1000 Island Lakes are just as popular, I chose one of my favorite spots in all of the Eastern Sierras. Ediza Lake is 6.5 miles from the trailhead.

The great thing being here on this morning was having the lake all to myself, as I was the only person who got up at sunrise to photograph the stillness. The bad thing was while I was the only human at the edge of the Lake, I was joined by about a million fun-loving hungry mosquitoes who clearly wanted to get toknow... more »

Sierra Wilderness Sunrise
North Peak and Shamrock Lake

Hiking into the 20 Lakes Basin area, was my very first overnight backpacking trip to the Eastern Sierras. This trail is a great way to get into backpacking the Sierras, as it is one of the less difficult hikes, yet leads to many beautiful scenic lakes. Shamrock Lake is about 3.5 miles from the trailhead. The trailhead is located just 2 miles from the entrance of Yosemite National Park, on it's eastern boundary.

NEW: In The Spotlight –– Announcement Post

It's time to show your fellow Google+ photographers some appreciation folks –– and I will provide you with the forum for exactly that; the brand new In The Spotlight circle.

What's the In The Spotlight circle?

It's a circle for my favorite photographers as well as yourself and your favorite people (it could be people you know or people you admire but never interacted with). It's the hottest circle yet here on Google+, a circle you definitely want to be a part of. 

Who can participate?

Anybody. As long as the main focus lies on photography. It's neither a pro circle, nor an amateur dito. It's a circle for great and active people loving the art of photography.

How can I be a part of this?

It's verysimple. Jus... more »

Swoosh
Mt. Rainier National Park

Whenever I look at this image, I think of a question that I cannot seem to answer the same way twice in a row...
Am I happier to capture a shot that has taken careful pre-planning, or a scene that presents itself, completely out of the blue?

On this occasion, I was in Mt. Rainier NP, to shoot icy waterfalls and winter abstracts. I think I shot one waterfall abstract, before I noticed this scene developing. The next few hours were spent finding a composition, waiting and shooting.

I ended up with very cold hands and feet, and no clearer answer to my big question. However, I definitely didn't have any complaints.
