Gailen Mapes66,178Hand 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 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 +2014-07-22 10:54:48153704CC G+

Charles Lupica83,296═════════════════════════════════     Top Photographers you should follow                 An Art of Photography Circle  Photographers whose art we think will amaze you ═════════════════════════════════#ArtOfPhotographyCircle tag to allow people to easily mute this post. It's been a while since I shared a circle here on G+ so I thought I would team up with +Scott Thomas and +Brian Dukes to share with you the first new circle I've created in more than a year.  We think you'll find that the photographers in this circle are some of the very best that G+ has to offer.  Of course you're probably already following people like Jeff Sullivan , Lori Hibbett, Jay Patel and  Vivienne Gucwa but we think that all of the people in this circle will add high quality content to your stream.  All share their amazing work and many of them share tutorials and resources to help you perfect your art. When deciding who would be in this circle, we used these guidelines• Sharing mostly their own work• When sharing the work of others, the work is clearly identified• Little to no, promotional material. • Some people are included that share a lot about technique but may not share a lot of their photography.• If they have gifs in their stream, they're almost always educational. • The images shared by these people frequently fall into the category of, "I wish I'd taken it" • They post to G+ on a regular basis,  For some this may be a little as once a month.  For others, this may be one or more a day.  People who post less than once a month are not included.  We prefer to circle people that are active here on G+. No one has asked to be in this circle, however, we intend to share a version of this each month.  *If you know of a talented photographer you'd like us to add*, please leave a comment and share the circle.  Doing so will get us to look at their profile. However, there is no guarantee that we'll include them in a future circle.   We want to maintain the quality of this circle.  Therefore, we will only add photographers that we would want to see in our own personal stream. Many of the photographers in this circle are well known so we are particularly interested in hearing your choice of photographers with fewer than 15'000 followers.  We would like to give them the opportunity to gain more views for their work.Please plus, comment and share.  This circle has no requirements for future participation but your support and encouragement is appreciated.I have chosen the name of the circle carefully to try to accurately represent the quality of the work by the photographers in it.  ValidationThis circle was very heavily vetted.  We have looked at each photographer's stream and decide that we would like to include them in this circle. +Charles Lupica (me), +Scott Thomas and +2014-06-27 17:39:05116934953CC G+

Piotr Tymiński7,625My very own circle of PHOTOGRAPHERS v.2A word of thanks to all of you who are a constant source of inspiration for me and a botomless well of beautiful work which is a joy to look at Real people here who post their own work. Amateurs and professionals. And no, I don't care about the number of followers they may have. It's all about the quality and, of course, quality is a very subjective matter so don't get upset with my choice:) I'm sure it can be a great source of inspiration for everybody. Many of the people in the circles have me in their circles and some do not, but take it easy, you don't need to circle me back - it's all about enjoying some great photography. And some of them (what a horror!) do not even call themselves photographers but somehow happily produce content which beats many so called "pro" guys.This circle is obviously under permanent development as new photographers are added when I come around some work I really enjoy. If you are into photography and I've circled you it means you will sooner or later be in this circle. I am simply putting some sense into my contacts - bringing order from chaos, you see... If you are into urbex and derelict climate please look for another circle of mine which is specifically dedicated to such kind of photography.Sharing is alway appreciated. #photographycircles #photographers  #photography #sharedcircles  #topcircles #circleshare #publicsharedcircle2014-05-30 19:07:18415261820CC G+

On my recent California trip when I was driving up to Big Sur, I found these poppies blooming near the ocean. It was such a beautiful sight with the orange poppies in the foreground and the deep blue ocean in the background.

When we were in Honolulu earlier this year, I drove out to Lanikai Beach to see the sunrise.  It was such a beautiful sight to see the sun rising between the 2 small islets just off the coast.  I can see why President Obama stays here whenever he visits Hawaii.

My next stop in Croatia was the capital, Zagreb. This is a street in Gradec, the old town on top of the hill. The spires in the distance are Zagreb Cathedral. Most tourists visit the coast of Croatia and not so many visit Zagreb. But I highly recommend it. I thought the old town was very charming.

Recently we went up to Lummi Island to have dinner at the Willows Inn. The next morning I got up early to catch the early morning light and I was lucky to have this beautiful view just before sunrise.  Dawn on the islands can be so nice combining both land and ocean.

After Slovenia, I went to Croatia and my first stop was Rovinj on the coast of Istria.  Rovinj was originally an island which is now connected to the mainland.  Just up the coast I was able to get a nice view of the city surrounded by the Adriatic.  It was so beautiful to see the city lights reflected in the sea at twilight.

The dahlias are blooming in Seattle.  This is one I found at the Bellevue Botanical Garden.  Dahlias are one of my favorite flowers.  They come in so many different colors and shapes.  I like the combination of colors in this image.

Piran is built on a peninsula which juts out into the Adriatic Sea.  When I arrived there I scouted for a place where one could see the city with the sea in the background.  I found a great location and then came back for this late evening shot.  It was such a beautiful sight as the lights came on and the sky turned cobalt blue.  I just love shooting during the blue hour!

This is Triple Bridge at twilight, perhaps Ljubljana's most famous landmark designed by Joze Plecnik. This scene just looks so European with the bridge and buildings illuminated. Ljubljana is not a very large city, but it packs a lot into a very small area. It was such a great place to start my trip to Slovenia!

Antonio Gaudi is one of my favorite architects.  His work is so colorful and whimsical. This is a view of Park Guell Terrace.  This development was originally started as an upmarket residential complex, but it was never a commercial success.  Luckily for us, the city purchased the whole complex and turned it into a park.  It sits on a hill and you can see the city below and the Mediterranean Sea in the background.  Such a beautiful place!

The last stop on my trip to Slovenia was Piran.  Piran is a port on the Adriatic and was part of the Venetian Republic for many centuries so it almost feels like you are in Italy.  I got up early to shoot the dawn light and was lucky to see this beautiful sunrise.  I like the leading lines of this image that draw your eye to the bell tower in the background.

We are on Lummi Island now.  We had a nice dinner at the Willows Inn last night.  This is an image I took on San Juan Island several years ago  The landscape here on Lummi Island is very similar since it is also one of the San Juan Islands.  Dawn on the islands is so beautiful!  Very quiet and peaceful.

When we were in Bled we went out to Vintgar Gorge one morning. It is such a beautiful place and the the boardwalk makes access so easy. While we were there we ran into +Luka Esenko  and +Deborah Sandidge  who were leading a photo tour there.  After I got back to the States I also saw a photo posted by +Sean Bagshaw of this place. I guess great minds think alike.

I sold a print of this image recently. I like the spirituality suggested by this photo. I also like the subtle colors revealed by the folds in the robe. It could almost be monochrome except for the hands and the plaque he is holding. Looking back at my photos from Japan I seem to be drawn to images focusing on hands.

In Slovenia we drove from Lake Bled up to Triglav National Park in the Julian Alps.  We passed through this beautiful mountain forest where I took this photo.  I thought it amazing that this tree was able grow on top of this boulder.  It seems symbolic of someone overcoming their disadvantages to achieve a long and prosperous life.

Lake Bled is a tourist destination and most people visit Bled Island to see the Assumption of Mary Church.  The most popular way to visit the island is to take one of these Plenta boats which are unique to Lake Bled.  You can also see Bled Castle on top of the hill behind the lake.  It was such a beautiful sight to see the Plenta  boats lined up at the dock.

Here is an image to add some color to your day.  When we visited Guadalajara, Mexico we went to the main market.  This is a long exposure looking down on the vegetable and fruit vendors.  I like the vibrant color and the contrast between the moving people and the ones standing still in this image.

This is a shot of Lake Bled in the late evening.  Traveling in Europe in May can be very tiring.  Most days I got up at 3:30AM to catch the early morning light and often I shot into the late evening.  This shot was taken about 9:30PM.  I try to take a nap in the middle of the day, but it can still be very exhausting.  I like the cool blue tones of this image with the impressionistic reflections in the water.  Lake Bled is such a beautiful place!

The second stop on my trip to Slovenia was Lake Bled.  This beautiful alpine lake has a small island with a medieval church.  It is such a picturesque spot and almost looks like a fairytale.  I got up early to catch the dawn light and was lucky to have these beautiful clouds reflected in the still waters of the lake.  What a way to start the day!

I sold a large metal print of this image from the South Island of New Zealand recently. As you may know the "Lord of the Rings" was filmed in New Zealand. I think it is almost possible to see some hobbits and elves walking out of the shadows in this cave. No wonder they choose New Zealand to film Middle Earth.

This is another shot from my recent trip to Ljubljana looking across Triple Bridge towards the old town with the castle in the distance. Perhaps Ljubljana's most famous landmark, triple bridge was designed by Joze Plecnik. Plecnik's relationship to Ljubljana is similar to Antonio Gaudi's relationship to Barcelona. Plecnik's architecture literally changed the face of Ljubljana in the early 19th century. A prominent member of the secessionist movement, Plecnik's art nouveau architecture has made modern Ljubljana the graceful city it is today.  I like the leading lines of this shot which draw your eye to the castle on the hill.

This is a view of Ljubljana old town and the triple bridge at twilight.  The illuminated buildings reflected in the Ljubljana River were so beautiful.  Ljubljana is relatively small, but well worth a visit.  I really enjoyed my brief stay there!

On my way to the Utah Arts Festival in Salt Lake City, I stopped in Twin Fall, ID and had a chance to take a quick photo of Shoshone Falls.  This area of Idaho is quite arid and it looks a bit strange to have such a large river flowing through the high desert.  Of course it is the snow pack in the mountains which is the source of the water.

I sold a print of this image of Experience Music Project yesterday. This print has been quite popular. Even people who are not big fans of this building tell me they like my photo.. The shapes are so fascinating and the blue / gold color combination is very pleasing to the eye. And of course Frank Gehry is such an outstanding architect. We are so lucky to have such a fantastic building in Seattle!

Like many other photographers, I like to collect images. I am fascinated with the abstract patterns one can find on tree trunks and I have a collection of many different trees. This is a rainbow eucalyptus which I found on the road to Hana in Maui. It is one of the most colorful tree trunks I have ever found. Many people think this image is a painting and are surprised when they learn it is a photo. It has been a popular image and I sold another one yesterday.

I sold 2 prints of my Great Buddha image recently. One was a metal print and another a traditional print on photographic paper. This image has been one of my most popular prints and it appeals to people who have never been to Japan. Perhaps because it is so peaceful and serene.

In the Olympic Mountains the snow has just melted and the new leaves are out.  This is an image I took several years ago about this time.  The lupine leaves have tiny hairs to help protect against the cold mountain climate and they also are a magnet for raindrops.  The fresh green leaves look so beautiful with raindrops on them!

I am fascinated with the abstract designs one can see on the trunks of trees.  I have a collection of these images so when I was in New Zealand last year I was happy to find this kauri tree.  Kauri trees live for many centuries and this one was very tall.  I like the subtle shades of color in the bark which is accented by the moss growing on it.  It almost looks like a modern abstract painting.

I started processing images from my recent trip to Slovenia & Croatia.  My first stop was Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia.  Legend has it that Jason and the Argonauts passed through what is now Ljubljana and slew a great monster in the swamp there.  The Slovenians have interpreted this monster to be a dragon and it has become a symbol of the city.  The dragon bridge was built in the late 19th century when Slovenia was part of the Austro-Hungarian empire.  It is a wonderful example of art nouveau or secessionist style which was in vogue at the time.  I like this shot with the out of focus spires of the cathedral in the background.

Often shooting from an elevated position can yield an interesting perspective. When I was in Prague last year I climbed up the tower on Charles Bridge to see what I could see. This image is a view of the Clementinum and Old Town from that high position. Of course timing is also important. I choose to climb up the tower in the evening and was able to catch some interesting color in the sunset sky. Prague is such a beautiful city with so many photo ops!

New Zealand has some of the best hiking trails I have seen anywhere.  This is a trail I took to the Oparara Arch on the northwest tip of the South Island.  The forests in this region are very lush because of the high annual rainfall which is also a good environment for tree ferns.  I was such a beautiful forest!

Budapest has one of the most photogenic locations of any European capital city. The beautiful neo-Gothic Parliament building is on the east bank of the Danube River and Budapest Castle graces the top of Castle Hill on the west bank. This is the view of the Parliament Building through the arches of Fisherman's Bastion. I like this combination of 2 Budapest icons with the illuminated buildings against a deep cobalt blue sky.

This is an image from my trip to Guanajuato, MEX. earlier this year. The city is built in a steep valley and many of the houses were built on steep slopes so there are many steps which can be quite photogenic. The fountain to the right of the steps is how the local residents got water many years ago. I like the graphic shapes and bright colors in this image.

I am a big fan of Japanese gardens and no Japanese garden is complete without Japanese maple trees.  I found these beautiful trees at Sennyuji Temple garden in Kyoto.  The art of Japanese gardens is to make a complete landscape in a very limited area and this one is quite successful.  Now if only our Japanese garden could look this good.

Several years ago I visited Nagano, Japan about this time of year to shoot the baby snow monkeys. Snow monkeys are born in April and by May they are big enough to walk on their own, but they still like to hitch a ride on top of their mother. This one is clinging to its mother's back. They are so cute when they are this age!

These are tidy tips, a wildflower I found growing at the Santa Barbara Botanical Garden.  I used a long macro lens to create the out of focus background.  I like the contrast of the sharply focused flower against the blurry background which draws your attention to this beautiful flower.

When I visited California last month the wildflowers were at their peak.  These are some California poppies that I found at the Santa Barbara Botanical Garden.  The garden has a field where they plant wildflowers and it was such a beautiful sight with so many different species.

When I visited Big Sur last month I decided to shoot the sunset at Pfeiffer Beach.  This beautiful spot is one of the few places near Big Sur where it is possible to access the beach.  It was so peaceful to see the sun set over the ocean even though it made for a very long journey back to Morro Bay that evening.

I like to do wildlife photography when I have a good opportunity.  On my recent trip to California, I found these mallard ducks at the Santa Barbara Botanical Garden.  It took me a while to teach the ducks how I wanted them to pose for me (HA HA), but I liked this shot of the two of them lined up in opposite directions.

On my recent trip to California I drove up to Big Sur and visited Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park for the first time. I had seen some photos taken here and I wanted to take some shots of McWay Falls. This is one of the few places in the world where a waterfall falls directly into the ocean. It is such a beautiful spot! I just love the turquoise green color of the water in the bay and rugged feeling of this spot.

Spring is one of the best times to take garden photos.  This is a Japanese style tea house at the Bellevue Botanical Garden.  We are lucky to have such a wonderful garden close to home and it was such a beautiful view looking out from this structure.

White Sands is one of the most surreal places I have visited. The pure white sand against a deep blue sky is so beautiful, but it almost looks unreal. The white color of the sand is due to the conditions of this area. This part of New Mexico has no outlet to the ocean. It is high desert, but when it does rain the water pools up and then evaporates. When the water evaporates it forms gypsum crystals because this mineral is so common here. Gypsum crystals are clear, but the wind breaks the crystals into small grains of sand and as the sand is blown around the surface of each grain of sand becomes scratched. Just like etched glass, the scratched surface of the sand looks white.

On my recent California trip when I was driving up to Big Sur, I found these poppies blooming near the ocean. It was such a beautiful sight with the orange poppies in the foreground and the deep blue ocean in the background.

This is another image from the Bellevue Botanical Garden.  Gardens are a great place to shoot what I like to call intimate landscapes.  A great garden is like a little universe unto itself.  The garden designer has created a little world which people can escape to.  We visit the Bellevue Botanical Garden often, but I am sure there must be some places I have yet to discover.
