Matt Shalvatis33,909*Calling Photographers and Artists:  Join us at the Weekend Art Marketplace.* PLEASE!  It’s very important to share this event.  You can either use the “Invite” function within this event, or share this event to your circles.   …………………………………………………………………… *Just what is Weekend Art Marketplace?*   This weekend and every weekend thereafter, is the Weekend Art Marketplace.  So what is it?  It’s a time where G+ artists share their art with a worldwide G+ audience, and G+ art buyers can see what the community has to offer.  *Ooh, ooh, I’m an artist.  Can I participate?*   Yes, you sure can!   See the Rules for Marketplace Participation below.   *What kind of art is suitable for the marketplace?* Photography, Drawings, Digital Art, Paintings, Wood Carvings, Music, Sketches, Caricatures, Cartoons, Origami, Poetry, Books, and no doubt others.  It’s all good!  *Why participate in this marketplace?* Look at it this way.  If you’re not in a marketplace, you’re a lone seller on an empty side street.  When you join up with other artists in a marketplace, you’re in a big store on the main highway, where 100 times more people can view your work.  Is that enough of a reason?   *So, how do I participate?*   To list an item in the marketplace, do this: • Get the URL you want to display from your personal website, or from the website you sell from, whether it’s Zenfolio, Smugmug, Zazzle, FineArtAmerica, or another. • Go to Google Plus, go to your “Share what’s new” box.  Click the link icon, paste in the URL from step one.  Your artwork should display in the photo area.  Or for a better viewing experience, upload a larger version of the photo from the photo link.  Don’t forget to put the website address in the G+ post!   • If possible, just give your audience a bit more information about your art.  Information the viewer might find useful or interesting.  What are they seeing?  What was your inspiration?   • Feel free to create a Limited Time Promotion for your Google Plus viewers.   • Add the tag #WeekendArtMarketplace • Add +Matt Shalvatis to your circles.  My name is for future updates and other features, like shared circles.   *Rules for Market Participation.* • Remember that you are not selling here on Google Plus; you must link to another website where you sell your work.   • Posting hours are 6 PM your local time Friday to 6 PM your local time Sunday (48 hours). • Please use the tag #WeekendArtMarketplace  on all posted items.  This is how everybody can find you and the market!   • Please use this tag only on weekends, on items posted within the 48 hour window.  • Don’t post multiple items at once.  Spread them out over the 48 hours.   • You must +1 and share the weekly Marketplace announcements and shared circles. • To gain greater visibility for the marketplace, please share 1 item from someone else for every item you post.   • The item listed on your G+ post must link to the item for sale, not something else. • Be helpful to other sellers aWeekend Art Marketplace2013-07-20 00:00:2333  
Ludwig Keck1,215Show your post-processing skills by making a "Work of Art" from the photo provided here. For a little more background see my blog post "Can you make a "work of Art" from this?" Here is how it works: 1) Download a copy of the photo of the cyclist at: https://plus.google.com/u/0/b/101500147253486018628/photos/101500147253486018628/albums/5878674745366003601/5878771326541066306?pid=5878771326541066306&oid=101500147253486018628 You can download a 2048px JPG version (Click "More") 2) Interpret the photo any way you like. Crop. Transform. Use any tool you like. 3) When you are happy with your creation share it with other participants by using the "Say something" field on this page. Click the camera icon. You will create a new album on your on site and the photo will be shared with this event. It will show in the feed and the photo collection. If you like, please explain the processing you used. This will give others ideas and help us all learn new techniques. 4) You may share your version outside this event by giving credit, "based on a photo by Ludwig Keck" or a similar phrase. If you would like to make use of it in some other way, including selling copies or using it in some commercial manner, please contact me for permission at - +Café Ludwig  5) You may enter as many interpretation as you like. 6) Please take time to see what others have contributed.

Photo Processing Challenge380*Last Photo Processing Challenge of 2012* Hello friends! The last challenge of year 2012 is something special. We have selected a photo from +David Smith for you to process, thanks David for donating your photo for the challenge. This photo was one of the most successful photos posted to our last "My photo for the next PPC" event. You also have some extra time to process this photo so you should have plenty of time regardless of busy Christmas time. As usual, you have two versions to select from: DNG version:  https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B682ifb8y2ypVEtZTXRXU2Y1dUU JPG version:  https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B682ifb8y2ypX1lhVWM5ZnAyUkU Respect photographer and mention his name when you publish your version of the photo. Mention also Photo Processing Challenge and if you wish, your curators +Janne Vuorenpää and +Mika Latvala. I also recommend that you explain how you processed your version by explaning the software and methods used. And the most important for the rest; have fun and learn!Photo Processing Challenge 7/20122012-12-13 09:00:0074  
Photo Processing Challenge380OK, folks, it's been quiet too long time and now we're back! This time the challenge comes from Porvoo, Finland. I was on a photowalk with some of my colleagues a few years ago and since Porvoo is one of the most beautiful cities in Finland I wanted you to process this shot. It was dark and wet night and I had my old "warhorse" Nikon D50 those days. That's why the quality of this photo is not too high but I believe you still can do miracles with it. As usual, you have two versions to process, JPG and DNG. Download whichever you prefer. You have one week starting tonight! Have fun! Please feel free to invite your friends too! Download JPG version here: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B8dHcC1IPKkwZ3FqdG9BZUltemM/edit Download DNG version here: https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B8dHcC1IPKkwcWlhS1hjNDIwMnM/edit *Select File --> Download, do not edit the originals.* Mika (& Janne)Photo Processing Challenge 6/20122012-11-08 18:00:0073  
Photo Processing Challenge380Hello folks! Some of you have already asked about the next challenge and here it is! The latest challenge received a lot of participants and hopefully you like this photo (at least) as much! This time our photo is of a beautiful house and it's shot by Janne. I bet your version will be much more rich in colors, much more interesting and will include much more interesting details. The mansion itself is Villa Petrell in Luvia, Finland. Perhaps there is something more information in the net for those who are intrested. As usual, you have one week to post your version. You also have two options to process, JPG and DNG versions. Let it roll! Download the JPG version here: https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B682ifb8y2ypY0N1cE1FWlVCUlU Download the DNG version here: https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B682ifb8y2ypcEY0OTlkVFZYQ00 Your curators: @104432369852747328665  @102757736811607251981 Photo Processing Challenge 5/20122012-10-20 18:00:0050  
Photo Processing Challenge380*Photo Processing Challenge 4/2012 is starting now* Some people have already asked about the next challenge and here we go! Previous photo was a little bit "full of nothing", but this time you really need to use your skills to make this look great! This is a photo of a museum steam engine shot during our National Railways museum train day 2012. The train is so beautiful but the landscape not so you have a possibility to make it look totally different if you feel so - or leave it as is and just process the whole photo look more natural. It's all up to you to decide! We've had some feedback and people were hoping to be able to download the JPG version of the photo. This time it's possible so check carefully whether you want to download the DNG version or the JPG version. As always, we're hoping that you also take some time to comment and "plus" other's photos - and *_do not forget to explain how you built your version of the photo!_* Have fun!

Olin 2 päivää retkeilemässä eri puolilta Eurooppaa tulevien EU-päättäjien kanssa. Suomen metsiin perustuva biotalous on ihan huipputasoa, olen meistä niin ylpeä! Uskon, että Suomen metsien käyttö nähdään nyt paremmin mahdollisuutena pelastaa maailmaa ja taloutta, eikä uhkana luonnolle. Katso kooste: https://storify.com/Biotalous/bioe-x-c-u

Old believes is Finland. The summer ends today.

Tomorrow is Pertteli's Day, the first day of autumn. Autumn arrives with yellowing leaves, frost-risky nights and dewy mornings. After Pertteli "there will be endless frost in the farmland and endless dew in the lap of the forest". Pertteli was said throw the third cold stone to waters, make blueberries black and nights dark.

Around this time migratory birds prepare to start their journey and wild nature stops producing new life: "There will be no procreation of wild birds after Pertteli". Predictions were made about the autumn weather. It was said that the summer would last as many weeks as there were swallows seen.

People could now enjoy the gifts of the cultivated land. Tables were filled with porridge made from new grain, turnips and potatoes. Flax and fiber hemp had to be collected and placed into water to soak before Pertteli, otherwise they would produce good fabric. Also the moss used to patch buildings needed to be gathered before this day.

Wildfowling was about to begin. If the winds blew from the north, people believed there would be a poor bird year. Also, rabbit snares were laid and in Northern Ostrobothnia men went deer hunting. Young women went about looking for a suitable partner, since "it is better to be the whole summer without a cow than Pertteli's night without a boy".

On some years Pertteli also marked the beginning of ‘akkainkesä’, women's summer. The name refers to a warm period which follows cold and rainy summer. Akkainkesä usually lasted until the end of September. On these warm and sunny autumn days spider webs could be seen looming in the air, on trees and on the ground. Of those webs people used to say that "the earth is now in heat".

This "earth's mating time" meant the best time for sowing winter rye was at hand. Mother earth (maaemoinen) was ready for the last sowing of crops before the winter.
