Gailen Mapes0Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  T-Z - 22 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 April 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting March 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.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 +Gailen Mapes2014-04-22 10:41:20144228CC G+

Gene Bowker66,344The   #Alphabetcircles  Gene's Active Photographers on G+ circle.Part Five: First Name R-Z (the final set)Meet 490 more ACTIVE G+ photographers with First Names between R and Z.Tomorrow is going to be a busy day at work, so I decided to go ahead and shoot this off tonight.It's that time again, I've been doing Spring Cleaning even though it isn't Spring officially yet here and going through my photography circles again to check out what folks have been sharing and see who is still active on G+.I've visited each of the folks included in this circles within the last week and they have been active in the last month (or so) and regularly post their OWN photography.They come from all over the world and their styles vary as much as their choice of equipment and subject matter.There are a lot of folks in here that I've been friends with for years, but there are also a lot of newer folks who you've probably not met yet and who I am looking forward to getting to know better myself.My Selection Criteria1. Actively posting photos on G+ (usually within 30 days or so)2. We circle each other (sometimes for a long time)3. Primarily post their OWN photography (that's a judgement call on my part)4. "Safe for work" (another judgement call)Why you should follow them?1. Add active photographers to your stream without a lot of inactive accounts.2. Find some new folks to interact with who are ACTIVE on G+As always.. if you do add them.. the best way to do that is to create a new circle and that way you can watch it and decide if they fit with you or notGoogle has recently changed the circle add logic, so you can no longer search a shared circle to determine who is in it and only add people that you don't already share. This makes life harder for all of us.Not in here?1. Maybe we haven't met yet?  If so, I'd love to hear from you and I'll be sure to check out your stream. Be sure to circle me if you haven't as I check those who add me regularly.2. Maybe you don't post public? If not, there is a good chance that you looked inactive to me.3. Maybe you don't post "primarily" photography... once again that is subjective.I love it when you shareIt does take a lot of time to visit and compile the lists. I enjoy doing it but feel free to re-share the circle with your friends. That way they can find some great new photographers too.  You don't have to reshare to remain in the circle, but it is appreciated.If you follow along you can easily add 2000+ photographers to your stream too.Gene Bowker+Rusted Rail Images   Here are the others in the seriesPart One: A-C https://plus.google.com/u/0/111112809838472063992/posts/1KejHoGGhBzPart Two: D-Ghttps://plus.google.com/u/0/111112809838472063992/posts/R9GFFEnR1CmPart Three: H-Khttps://plus.google.com/u/0/111112809838472063992/posts/Beo3nKCJS6oPart Four: L-Qhttps://plus.google.com/u/0/+GeneBowker/posts/J2pQM7ZpBoJ (thanks Randy for catching that)Thanks again to everyone in all of the circles. It's been a lot of fun seeing your work and I look forward to resharing the circles in a few months time. Stay ACTIVE everyone.2014-03-17 00:25:0949113234139CC G+

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 03:26:0247725963164CC G+

This is Chain Bridge in Budapest at twilight.  I decided to shoot the bridge with traffic trails and luckily there is a small traffic island on the Pest side of the bridge.  So it is possible to set up a tripod in what looks like the middle of the road.  It was such an impressive sight and a little scary as the traffic wizzed by me, but I just love this view with the lion statues in front of the bridge and Budapest Castle in the background.

The cherry trees have finished blooming in Seattle, but this is what the UW campus looked like several weeks ago.  We always like to see these beautiful trees when they are in full bloom, but you have to get up early to get any photos without crowds of people in them.  It is such a beautiful sight in the springtime!

Many Mexican cities have a gazebo where music is played for the public.  This is Plaza de Armas in central Guadalajara which has one of the most beautiful gazebos I saw on our recent trip.  Since Guadalajara is the birthplace of mariachi it should be no surprise that they built such an elaborate gazebo in their city.  Behind the gazebo you can see Guadalajara Cathedral.  It was such a beautiful sight early in the morning!

Mexico has many beautiful and historic churches, but this is one of the most impressive churches we saw on our recent trip.  Zapopan is a suburb of Guadalajara which is famous for this basilica which houses a statue of the virgin of Zapopan and is a pilgrimage site for Mexican catholic worshipers.  The wooden statue was brought from Spain in the 16th century and the basilica was built in the 17th c3ntury.  It was a beautiful sight in the early AM.

This is the Governor's Palace in Guadalajara, MEX.  This beautiful old colonial building was built in the Spanish colonial style with an open courtyard.  Since it is located next to the cathedral, it is possible to see the spires and dome of this beautiful church through the arches of this arcade.  We visited here late in the evening so I was able to capture the spires and dome with a deep blue twilight sky.  I had not planned this shot, but one must take advantage of the situation.  Serendipity can be important for photography.

Yesterday I licensed this image to a travel company in Australia via +ImageBrief .  In mid-November, Japanese celebrate the Shichi-Go-San Festival which literally means 7-5-3. Parents take their daughters who are 7 or 3 years old and sons who are 5 years old to their local shrine to be blessed by a Shinto priest. This ceremony is said to promote long and prosperous lives for the children. The girls and boys who attend this ceremony often wear very elaborate and intricate kimonos. This image of a 7 year old girl was taken at Meiji Shrine in Tokyo.

When we told Mexicans that we were going to Guadalajara, everyone told us that we should see the Orozco murals and they were right.  Orozco was a Mexican social realist muralist almost as famous as Diego Rivera.  This is a mural of Miguel Hidalgo at the Guadalajara Governor's Palace.  Even if you don't like this style of painting, you have to admit that it does get your attention.  It was such an impressive sight!

I am a big fan of agave.  Whenever I visit a botanical garden I try to find nice specimens.  This is an agave I found at The Huntington Botanical Garden in Pasadena.  I will be traveling to Pasadena later this week so perhaps I will have a chance to go again and make some more botanical images.

In Guanajuato many houses are built on steep slopes of hillsides and the only access is via narrow alleyways.  This is one of the alleyways I found wondering around the city leading up to hillside homes.  I just love these typical Mexican colors.  Mexico is so colorful!

This is Jardin de La Union in central Guanajuato. The building on the right is Teatro Juarez. This is a very popular spot and it is usually crowded, but it is possible to get a shot without people in the early morning. I like the leading lines of this image which draw your eye down the street and the dawn sky is such a beautiful shade of blue.

Guanajuato was built in a V shaped valley.  Because there is such a shortage of land, houses have been built on the steep slopes of the valley.  The Mexican people like to paint their houses in bright colors so the view of the houses from a distance is very colorful.  I found a rooftop terrace to make this image.  The dome in the foreground is Our Lady of Guanajuato Basilica and you can see the statue of Pipila on top of the distant hill.

This is Teatro Juarez, one of Guanajuato's most famous buildings. Originally built as an opera house, it was completed in 1903 and is now a museum. The opulent interior reflects the wealth which came from the nearby silver mines which at one time produced more the 70 percent of the world's silver. Such a beautiful building!

In Guanajuato we stayed at a lovely small hotel which was originally the residence of a wealthy family.  This is the view looking up the staircase.  I like to shoot abstract views of buildings when I see the opportunity.  I had to put the camera on the floor to get this shot.

The colors in Mexico are amazing. These are some colorful steps I found wandering around Guanajuato. I think the warm climate in Mexico influences their choice of colors, but whatever the reason it is wonderful. Many of the houses in Guanajuato are built on steep slopes which require steps from the street up to the house entrance and makes for interesting architectural detail. I think this image it almost looks like an abstract painting.

When I am traveling I like to get up early and shoot at dawn. If I am in a city, I try to find some illuminated buildings to shoot against the deep blue dawn sky. This is Plaza de La Paz which is the main square of Guanajuato. The church is Our Lady of Guanajuato Basilica, which is the largest and most important church in the city. Even at this early hour there were people walking on the streets, but by using a 30 second exposure, I was able to eliminate them from my images. I just love these classical colonial buildings illuminated against a cobalt blue sky. What a beautiful city!

This is the detail of Our Lady of Guanajuato Basilica main door. According to our tour guide, the native american artisans included pagan god images on colonial churches to protect them from evil spirits. This definitely looks like a pagan god to me and it is interesting that the Catholic priests allowed such things.  This has to be one of the most impressive doors I have seen anywhere.

On our recent trip to Mexico, we spent several nights in Guanajuato. On our first night there we took the funicular up the mountain to see the city from the terrace just below the statue of Pipila, a hero of the Mexican revolution.  It was such a beautiful sight as the lights of the city came on and the sky got darker.

Budapest has many hot springs and has built many thermal spas where people can enjoy soaking in the mineral waters. This is the most elaborate spa we saw on our trip to Budapest. Such a beautiful building and very popular with the locals. I was amazed at how large this mineral water pool is.

I am a big fan of modern architecture and one of my favorite architects is Frank Gehry.  This is a closeup shot of his Walt Disney Concert Hall in downtown, Los Angeles.  I think the silver facade looks great against a blue sky.  It is such a fantastic building!

Prague is one of my favorite cities.  Unlike most European capitals, Prague has never suffered from a wartime invasion so the old town has an abundance of medieval buildings some of which date back to the 13th century.  This image is the old town square at dawn.  It is unusual to see the square without any people.  Even at this early hour in the morning I had to avoid people going home from drinking all night long.

This is the town square of Chesky Krumlov in Southwestern Bohemia.  There are many well preserved medieval buildings some of which date back to the 13th century.  It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and was an interesting stop when we visited the Czech Republic last year.  The column in the middle of the square is dedicated to all the victims of the Plague.

Mexicans like to decorate their cities for festivals.  These are some decorations I found in San Miguel de Allende for Day of the Dead several years ago.  I like the lines of this composition and the colors are also great.  I think the warm climate encourages the Mexicans to use vibrant colors, so different from the Pacific Northwest where we live.

Fisherman's Bastion perches on top of Castle Hill on the Buda side of Budapest and offers wonderful views of the Danube River and the city below. Built in neo-Gothic and neo-Romanesque style it looks older then it really is, as it was completed in the beginning of the 20th century. It has become one of Budapest's most famous landmarks and is a wonderful structure. I like this view of one of the turrets and the city below through this pedestrian passageway.  Recently my stock agent licensed this image for a book cover published in Austria.

When we were staying in Waikiki we had lunch at The Royal Hawaiian Hotel.  I was so impressed with the classic architecture of this wonderful hotel I decided to go back and shoot there at dawn.  This is the view of Waikiki and Diamond Head from the hotel patio.  It was such a beautiful sight!

I am a big fan of botanical gardens.  When I am traveling I always try to visit any local botanical gardens because they take such good care of their plants.  In the wild it is almost impossible to find perfect specimens.  Often leaves have been eaten by insects or there are other dis-formations, but this task is not so hard at botanical gardens.  This is a coastal agave which I found at Cacti Mundo in San Jose de Cabo in Baja California.  Next week we will visit Mexico so perhaps I will be able to increase my collection of botanical images.

The soaptree yucca is an amazing plant.  It starts growing on ground surface, but when sand dunes cover the surface it grows taller and taller.  Some plants thrive even when the sand dunes are more than 20 or 30 feet high.  I made this image several years ago at White Sands NM in New Mexico.  I like the early morning side lighting which makes shadows that clearly delineate the ripples in the sand in this image.  The puffy clouds are also very beautiful.

This was the view from our hotel room in Waikiki.  I have never been to a place with so many highrise buildings next to the beach.  It was almost like a tropical mini-Manhattan.  The upside was that there was no shortage of nice restaurants in Honolulu.

This is the swimming pool of the hotel where we stayed in Waikiki.  I got up early to shoot it without any people during "blue hour".  I think the deep blue sky goes well with the dark blue of the swimming pool.  With a highrise hotel in the background, what could be more Waikiki than this?

 After visiting Molokai we returned to Oahu and stayed on the edge of Waikiki. The Ala Moana Marina was just behind our hotel so I walked over to take some photos of the sunset. I am not so fond of riding on boats, but they are a great subject for photography. I like the beautiful sky behind the yachts in the foreground of this image.

On our recent trip to Hawaii we visited Molokai for the first time.  Unfortunately the weather was mostly rainy which did not make for many photo opportunities.  One day we hiked down to the old leper colony.  While we were touring the historic sites the rain let up and this is the view from the edge of the colony.  In this image you can clearly see that the islands of Hawaii are the top of mountains which rise up above the surface of the ocean.  This totally undeveloped coast must be what Hawaii looked like before any Europeans "discovered" the islands.

This is the gate of Hokokuji Temple in Kamakura.  Most Japanese temples have a gate to separate the outside world from the religious space of the temple.  I like the way this walkway leads your eye to the interior of the temple garden.  I can hear it saying "Come in and have a look at what's inside."

This is the view through the window of the tea house at Okochi Sanso, a beautiful garden which is the former home of a famous Japanese movie star.  I just love the view of the bamboo through this window.  Okochi Sanso is located near the Sagano Bamboo forest in western Kyoto so it is not surprising that there is a lot of bamboo in this area.  It was so peaceful to sit sipping our tea looking out on this beautiful view.

Tokyo has many modern buildings and this is one of my favorites.  This is the interior of the Tokyo International Forum near Tokyo Station.  It was designed by Rafael Vinoly who won an international competition for this convention center.  Vinoly is originally from Uruguay and works in New York City, but I think it fits in well in Tokyo.  The entire building from the basement to the ceiling is an indoor atrium.  I just love the ceiling which is reminiscent of the hull of a large ship.  I like the lines of this image which draw your eye into the detail of this beautiful architecture.

When I am traveling I always try to get up early to shoot the early morning light.  When I am shooting cities this is also a great time because I can often shoot very busy places without any people.  This is a shot of Dufferin Terrace in Quebec City just before sunrise.  The building on the left is Chateau Frontenac, Quebec City's most famous hotel.  I like the leading lines of this image and the beautiful early morning light.

On my last night in Tokyo, I decided to shoot some zoom blurs in Shinjuku. Shinjuku is one of the busiest areas in Tokyo with many neon lights. For this shot I stood in the middle of the street when the traffic was stopped for a red light. I think this shot captures the hustle and bustle of Tokyo at night.

When I was waiting for my train to Osaka, I got out my tripod so I could take some long exposures of the trains arriving and departing from the station.  I like these shots with motion blur but with other areas of the image remaining tack sharp.  I was able to take several exposures, but eventually one of the staff told me I could not use a tripod.  One of the most frustrating things about shooting in Japan is all their rules against using tripods.

This is near where the Emerald River flows into Emerald Lake in the Canadian Rockies.  It was very cold when we were there in February last year, but even at that time the flowing river was not totally iced over.  I like this snowy landscape with the dark river and trees contrasted against the white snow.  The Canadian Rockies are so beautiful in the winter!

When I visited Japan last year I took the bullet train from Tokyo to Osaka.  While I was waiting for my train I took some photos on the platform.  These are 2 bullet trains lined up at Shinagawa Station.  I just love the ultra-modern design of these trains.  The one on the left is the newer design, called "Nozomi", and is one of the fastest trains ever built reaching top speeds of over 180 mph.
