Offbeat Images920THIS CONTEST ENDED ON 8/15/14 Introducing the Offbeat Images "Blue Ribbon" Gallery Contest – the bi-weekly, Google+ digital photography and art competition dedicated to honoring images (and the digital artists) that celebrate the magic and wonder found in ordinary places, spaces and things.   You are cordially invited to show off YOUR best “offbeat” image (and digital art skills)  in our inaugural contest. [You can ONLY SUBMIT ONE IMAGE.]  What is considered an "offbeat" image?  It's not a traditional landscape, portrait, or macro digital photography image. (In other words, you probably won't find one on a travel poster, art gallery wall or flower theme page.)  An "offbeat" image is an original, unconventional, high-quality (i.e., not raw, but very well composed and thoughtfully processed) piece of digital photography or art that captures the glory of often overlooked items and areas in our world. For example:  Peeling old paint, Candid or unconventional portraits, Striking or abstract shadows and/or reflections in buildings or things, Interesting or unique antiques, Narrow alleyways, Far off Main Street urban scenes, Fallow farms or old tractors, Stormy skyscapes or unusual clouds, Dried river beds, Broken windows, Abandoned factories, Beaches in winter, Overgrown paths or trails, Fields of wildflowers, Seldom used roadways, Weedy gardens, Decayed, worn or rusty objects ... The examples above are merely a guide to what some might consider ordinary things and spaces. The everyday world has lots of ordinary things and spaces that--with an artist's touch, could be captured and crafted to look or feel extraordinary. That said, PLEASE DON'T SUBMIT the following: -  Unprocessed or raw photos (no "Instagram" or snapshots) -  Images lacking thoughtful composition, lighting, focal point, color or tone balance, perspective, or cropping. ("Offbeat" by our standard doesn't mean silly, shocking, or mocking in nature. This is a serious contest for serious artists looking to express their artistic vision.) -  Landscapes/skyscapes/seascapes  (Unless you have used additional processing, such as HDR, selective focus, textures, etc.) -  Macro shots of flowers or bugs (Unless you have used additional processing, such as HDR, selective focus, textures, etc.) So ... set your artistic self free: Create your "offbeat" images with THINGS AND SPACES FOUND IN YOUR EVERYDAY WORLD that capture your eye, meet our definition and deserve our attention.  Thanks again for your participation. _______________________ Here’s how to participate: 1) Circle our Offbeat Images "Blue Ribbon" Gallery theme page and each of our owners and curators. 2) Accept this contest event invitation and submit ONE original (i.e., created and owned by you) image that you have either previously shared publicly on Google+ or one that you have created recently and would like to share--first, with us in our contest. (Be sure to share only a single image--not an album, and enable commeOffbeat Images "Blue Ribbon" Gallery Contest - ENDED ON 8/152014-08-01 21:00:00221

Night Photography Training Club Sandwich No we're not talking about lunch, but the 2 classroom sessions sandwiched in between 3 nights of in-field photography workshops sure sounded like a Club Sandwich.  It's not a new approach, but it is an effective way to learn the process from start to finish - learning where and when to go, how to capture great images, and how to bring them to life in post-processing.  Some Of The Locations to shoot: •Double Arch •Turret Arch •Balanced Rock •Delicate Arch •Park Avenue For more details and to sign-up http://www.coloradocaptures.com/arches-national-park-multiple-night-night-photography-training-club-sandwich. *Come post your photos of Moab and join the buzz in this event for the 3 night adventure*  http://goo.gl/XkHDHe   *2.  Spend the night shooting in Rocky Mountain National Park*  September 7, 2013 7:00 pm to 5:00 am  Join Mike Berenson on an overnight photography workshop with demonstrations and hands-on training that focuses on the wonders and challenges of night photography in Rocky Mountain National Park near Estes Park, Colorado.

Trever McGhee97,047Please accept my apologies if your one of the few that got hit by a bug in their system! This is my first event and for some reason Google notified some people 20 times and for some their system was planning on doing that within their calendars for the next 5 years...every single day...20 times a day...how it did or why it would set peoples calendars up to be notified 20 times a day...I don't know. Hopefully they've got it corrected, if not please let me know. I know I wanted to help peoples wishes come true but not in that way, The goal of this event my Birthday is give you as many of my Birthday Wishes as you require...why because you deserve it. My wish is here is to connect you to the thoughts/ the energy of thousands of people around the world all making a Birthday Wish for themselves from the heart... to you. I like to Imagine the energy from all those making a wish and the energy coming from the ones that come true(the smiles..the laughter..the tears...the overflowing of pure joy) being connected to you to power your own wish to come true. Thanks to some theories about Quantum Physics there's no space between you or me or them...topped with the fact they tell us energy is never destroyed, it's gotta go somewhere as each new person joins in, so why not to you to empower your wish to come true sooner rather than later. Imagine being connected to thousands....millions of others all making wishes...all hoping that your wish comes true for it will help empower their wish. They've documented several cases of where positive thoughts have made a difference, so why not around someones birthday who can then share it with everyone whose connected to that person...so me for this event. It's never been done before, so why not now....be part of it. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain as we go day by day, year by year building this community of wish granters. Now think of an image that represents your wish and then take2seconds to think of that image at least once a day until it comes true. Have fun with it, there's no right or wrong way when you come from the heart. Please let us know as each wish comes true...yes each wish...there's no law that says you're only granted one wish...you deserve everyone of them when they come from the heart..when that wish fills you with the passion for life... *****UPDATE at first I was focused on getting as many people as possible for this so that everyone had more energy but now after reading your comments..hearing your passion for life...the numbers have gone completely out the window for each one of you have brought your own unique energy to the equation that's priceless....THANK YOU In my world Birthday wishes can be made everyday of the year because it's a celebration everyday that your here to share this with. So today I Celebrate being 44 and 1 day old.Update to fix Google Bug for "It's My Birthday and my wish is for your wishes to come true!!"2012-08-17 12:00:00202

I’ve done it with five shots all processed in the new HDR merge feature of Lightroom 6.

(Click on the photo to view it large)

English/Português

Photo description:
Another capture of the sunset taken on the 1st of April in Setúbal. It’s the same spot where I took The End of a Day (http://goo.gl/M9bXzb) but in this case the composition is more focused on the foreground and its slimy details rather than the sky.

Descrição da foto:
Mais uma captura do pôr-do-sol do 1º de Abril. É no mesmo local onde tirei The End of a Day (http://goo.gl/M9bXzb) mas neste caso a composição está mais focada no primeiro plano, e nos seus pormenores viscosos, do que no céu.

Blue River by Night - Setúbal, #Portugal
(Click on the photo to view it large)

English/Português

Photo description:
Setúbal is know as the “City of the Blue River” because most of the time the Sado river is indeed very blueish. Like here in this photo that I took a few days ago. 
This waterfront is pretty recent. It is less than 100 years old. Before it was built, this area was mainly a sand beach. You can check it out here in this old painting:
http://www.prof2000.pt/users/avcultur/Postais3/Setubal/002_Setubal.jpg
I was born here in Setúbal. Every time I come back, I can’t help but to feel so lucky. What a beautiful place to be welcomed into this planet...

Esta frente ribeirinha é relativamente recente. Tem menos de 100 anos. Antes de ser construída, esta zona era essencialmente uma praia. Podem ver isso nesta gravura antiga:

Two Boats - Setúbal, #Portugal
(Click on the photo to view it large)

English/Português

Photo description:
I took this shot at the so called Industrial Area of Mitrena, in the outskirts of Setúbal. It has a few rare and remaining spots where the original sand beach, that once was the whole waterfront of the city, survived the commercial or industrial piers and docks. A few fisherman still keep their boats there.
It’s a fantastic place to shoot the sunset and gaze at the glamorous Tróia and Arrábida mountains from afar...

I was born in Setúbal. Every time I go back there I can’t help but to feel so lucky. What a beautiful place to be welcomed into this planet…
This is not the first photo I take from this beautiful 16th Century Convent and I hope it won’t be the last. It never stops to amaze me how peaceful and isolated this must have been  back when it was built. And you can imagine the gorgeous view it has over the Atlantic Ocean.
