Matt Shalvatis34,180*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 Marketplace 2.02013-05-25 00:00:0533

Sunset Over Antalya, Turkey
First processed image from my holiday to Turkey and it's one of the last I took. The mountain range is to the West of Antalya and I was shooting from the beach near Belek.
The sun sunk pretty fast and there was no real glow but the layering in the sky was still pretty cool.

nexus 6 camera and autoawesome

Had the nexus 6 for coming up to a week now and have to say I'm impressed. Taking a few shots of something outside today as the light was fading so tried a shot with HDR+ enabled, which G+ did the magic on when uploaded.
Might have to also get a camera app. Which will take advantage of the raw capture baked in as well.

We've just received a new testimonial from another happy Toad Hollow client!!

"Azam Khan from Vancouver Island Event Catering:
My name is Azam Khan and I operate Vancouver Island Event Catering, a up and coming successful catering company in the Cowichan Valley. I have had the privilege to hire Scott and Laurie from Toad Hollow Photography do take my personal and food pictures for my website. It was a pleasure from the moment I met them and the patience and quality of work was second to none.
I look forward to working with them in the future and can’t wait to see what they come up with next. If you’re looking for that truly personal experience with quality give them a call at 250-510-7693, you won’t regret it."

Finality
#5dayblackandwhitechallenge  

Day 5 of the #5dayblackandwhitechallenge  and I'll end with this shot. The sky was visually fairly flat when I took this and with a low winter sun there was a lot of tonal range. As a result I shot bracketed in order to process as HDR but it was not working for me, in the end I used a single image and processed in lightroom with a lot of dodging and burning.
Thanks to +Giuseppe Maria Galasso for the invite, I've had some fun with this and I guess I need to pass the baton, step forward +Scott Johnson let's see what ya got...

The rules are simple: You post a black and white photo for five days (they do not have to be consecutive). Brand new or old. And each day you mention the person who invited you and nominate another one to participate in the challenge. Have fun. :)

Can't see the wood for the trees
Day 4 of the #5dayblackandwhitechallenge  

Today a shot of a stand of Silver Birch trees on Wimbledon Common in SW London. I shot this on the telephoto to compress the image and fill the frame with the trunks and ramped up the contrast in processing to emphasis the tonality of the trees. As soon as I saw this view I knew this was how I wanted to shoot and process and of course black and white was the only option open as colour would have detracted from the graphic nature of the image.
Thanks again to +Giuseppe Maria Galasso for the nomination

Gulet
I'd thoroughly recommend a Gulet trip if you are in Turkey. Our travel company offered a trip but this one was run by local people and were taking bookings at the beach for a 3rd of the price of the travel operator.
The trip included lunch a couple of swim stops and a 3 hour stop in Side, a historic Hellenistic town further along the coast.
Also the beer and soft drink for sale on the Gulet was cheaper than the beers in town.
One word of caution, we sailed in a strong offshore wind and these boats are fairly shallow draught and high sides meaning that they tend to be hard work in a side wind. The trip was still smooth but it took longer and at one point we entered a river mouth to turn around and ended up being blown back out sideways.
Luckily the boat crew were skilled and used a mix of anchor and engine to make the turn safely. They also had the forethought to... more »

Feeling Blue
Just had to try getting some compression on the mountains, when I looked at this during processing I also felt the need to bring the colours back to shades of blue.

No Fires Here
Hopefully there will be no fires as this hydrant looks like it's seen better days and will probably just shoot out sand.
Spotted at a abandoned looking complex next to the beach in Belek, Turkey.

Side Mosque
I always prefer outdoor shooting in the early morning or late afternoon due to the quality of light however there are times when that's not possible.
I shot this mid afternoon in Turkey, harsh overhead sun and no clouds in sight, making for strong shadows and high contrast.
Trouble is I only had a 3 hour window at the location so I had to work with what I had.
I worked my way into position so that the sun was behind the minaret and spot metered from the "dark side" of the minaret. This had the advantage of hiding the sun but also backlighting the glass top of the tower and the Turkish flag while reducing shadows.
Once imported into Lightroom it was a simple job to bring detail back into the sky and tone down any remaining shadows.

Side Mosque, Antalya Province, Turkey
Side is a stunning village on the coast in Southern Turkey. It's a mixture of the old and new with Stunning Hellenistic Ruins, shops catering for tourists and traditional Turkish housing. Rising above it all is this beautiful Mosque with it's stone Minaret capped by a blue glass cone.

Sunset over Antalya, Turkey

Sunset Over Antalya, Turkey
First processed image from my holiday to Turkey and it's one of the last I took. The mountain range is to the West of Antalya and I was shooting from the beach near Belek.
The sun sunk pretty fast and there was no real glow but the layering in the sky was still pretty cool.

So this poor chap must have got lost and had been sitting on a porch for several hours. I finally got hold of a bird of prey rescue society who advised me to try and coax it down with some meat and put it in a box.
I tied but I don't think it liked Quorn sausage and it flew away.
Apparently it's a Lanner Falcon.
