Offbeat Images1,032THIS 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 21:00:00218

Note: *Only photos uploaded and posted to the event page or associated with the hashtag #sunsetday on Sep 19 will be considered* We hosted two Hangouts On Air in preparation for Sunset Day.

Photo Tour Global Directory™4,399*Meet +Mike Berenson  of http:www//ColoradoCaptures.com and some of his past students as they share what it is like to go on a nightscape workshop adventure with him.*   Mike conducts workshops, tours and has in class training to help photographers advance to the next level in their photography.   You will meet +Kristal Kraft  a Real Estate professional and talented photographer from the Denver Metro area and +Teri Virbickis  and impactologist who specializes in helping people get started in Stock Photography.   Both ladies have taken classes from Mike and have taken their photography to a much higher level by applying some of the techniques he teaches.   The panel will be discussing two Nightscape photography trips coming up. *1.  Learn The Secrets Behind Capturing Incredible Nightscape Images - Multiple Nights In Arches National Park* August 31, 2013 7:00 pm to September 3, 2013 3:00 am  Join Mike Berenson on a multiple night, night photography training event featuring a combination of both in-field instruction and classroom training - all focusing on the wonders and challenges of night photography in Arches National Park near Moab, Utah.  This workshop training event is scheduled specifically to take advantage of dark skies with little to no moonlight - allowing for the best opportunity to capture great nightscape images.

Slooh248,423Slooh Space Camera to Broadcast Live Feed of Jupiter’s Closest Approach to Earth -- during Great Red Spot Transit Slooh Space Camera will broadcast a free, real-time feed of Jupiter on the night it's at its closest to Earth until the summer of 2021. This happens just as the famous cyclonic storm, the Great Red Spot, parades across the middle of the giant planet's disk.     Slooh’s coverage of Jupiter at its brightest and biggest will begin on Sunday, December 2nd starting at 5:15 PM PST / 8:15 PM EST / 01:15 UTC (December 3rd) with real-time views from Slooh’s Canary Islands observatory. The event is free to the public on Slooh.com and viewers can watch live on their PC or IOS/Android mobile device. Slooh’s Jupiter event will be hosted by Slooh’s President, Patrick Paolucci, and will  be joined by astronomer Bob Berman. Bob and Patrick will explore the astronomical importance of Jupiter, the current and already funded future spacecraft missions, the intriguing possibilities of life in the Jovian satellite system, and even the odd, powerful decametric radio signals beamed from the fast-spinning world. Jupiter will be about 378 million miles (608 million km) away from Earth on the night of December 2nd/3rd with a brilliant magnitude -2.8 that makes it by far the most dazzling object in the midnight sky, after the Moon. It is currently visible throughout the night. Weather permitting, backyard telescopes should be able to see some surface detail including the dark equatorial belts and yellow-white zones. The Slooh live feeds, however, will also reveal deep blue deeper regions around the equator, the dark lightning-prone polar detail, and the most famous storm in the solar system, the Great Red Spot, which is more than twice the size of Earth. Jupiter Close Approach with Great Red Spot Transit2012-12-03 02:15:00349

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 12:00:00203

City Lights - Setúbal, #Portugal  #INeedNature

English/Português

Photo description:
A couple of years ago I bought this Nikon 35mm prime lens. Most of the time I use my versatile Nikon 18-300mm, and so far had no practical use for the 35mm. So, it has been sitting in my gear bag this long. My mistake. You know, the zoom is versatile but it’s enormous and weighs almost 1Kg. That’s a lot. On the other hand the 35mm is light and very sensitive: just 1:1.8 which is fabulous for a 180€ lens.
It has a learning curve on how to use it properly. It hasn’t been easy.  But it’s very sharp, fast autofocusing and clear. It has a little bit of distortion on the corners, but that can be totally fixed on post processing with Lightroom. Not an issue, then...

Why do I talk about this? Because I forced myself to only use this lens for the last few days and this is the first shot where I really like the result. The light and the sand detail on the foreground, and the city lights and building sharpness on the horizon are just perfect. That’s why I talk about it!

Descrição da foto:
Há dois anos comprei esta lente ‘prime’ Nikon de 35mm. A maior parte do tempo utilizo a versátil Nikon 18-300mm e até agora não tinha dado qualquer utilização prática a esta lente. E assim, tem estado guardada na mochila do equipamento este tempo todo. Erro meu. Sabem, o zoom é de facto versátil, mas é enorme e pesa quase 1Kg. É muito. Por outro lado a 35mm é levezinha e muito sensível à luz: apenas 1:1.8 o que é fabuloso para uma lente de apenas 180€. 
Tem uma curva de aprendizagem em como tirar melhor partido dela. Não tem sido fácil. Mas é muito nítida, rápida na focagem automática e muito transparente. Apresenta uma ligeira distorção nos cantos, mas isso é totalmente resolvido na pós-produção com o Lightroom. Não é um problema…
Porque é que eu falo acerca disto? Porque me tenho obrigado a usá-la exclusivamente nos últimos dias e esta é a primeira foto cujo resultado eu estou satisfeito. A luz e o detalhe da areia em primeiro plano, e as luzes e a nitidez dos edifícios no horizonte estão simplesmente perfeitos. É esta a razão porque falo disto!
