Gailen Mapes67,208Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera  R-S - 29 of 31Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.  (Because of it's size, this circle will be split next month.)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 August 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting July 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 +2014-08-29 10:30:45209836

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 +2014-07-29 10:16:1119910511

2. the macro lens is back where it belongs - long-term storage,
3. this was the last over-ripe sweet lime, and
4. I have been asked not to enter the kitchen from now on....:)

Sharing this great post from Alex. Add your constructive comments to his post so that they reach those who are trying to help improve our GPlus experience.

Feedback on Google Plus

+Brian Matiash has recently invited us to send him feedback on Google Plus, at matiash@google.com, and I'm happy to take him up on it!  I've pasted my note to him below; I'm certainly looking forward to your comments to me, but I also encourage everyone to take some time and send Brian your own thoughts about the platform.

+Sumit Sen +Robin Griggs Wood +Thomas Hawk You may have other avenues for providing feedback, but I know that all of you have been engaged for a long time with helping build this community; I'm hoping this is a productive time to rekindle the discussion.



My goal is simply to try to improve what Google Plus is, not to imagine something very different that it might become.  And I’m speaking for myself; this isn’t, at least for now, an attempt to canvas the whole community for ideas.  I do think most active photographers on G+ want pretty much what I want, but I’m really just trying to express what matters to me and why.  I’m also not trying to tell Google how to win more active users or improve engagement outside the photography community; I’m speaking as an active user myself, who hopefully creates original content that helps create activity within the platform.  In that way I am a facilitator, but I understand that I am not a customer, as I neither advertise nor view any advertising.  If your entire future is in cats, GIFs and phone selfies, I’ll go quietly.


A.  Identity
If I’m going to invest any time or effort in G+ as my online face to the world (or one of them), I have to be able to choose what I wish to present, to control what about me can be viewed.  It is absolutely miserable to be forced by some “feature” to actively misrepresent myself, by showing the wrong posts, photos or personal information.  When it comes to my profile, I’m able to pick and choose what to show and which tabs, and I can exclude Community posts – all good.  But my ability to choose and organize the photos I present is disastrous and has continually worsened.  I’ve chosen to be here as a photographer and nothing more or less, and I can’t show my photography in an acceptable way.

Request 1:  Present photos in albums.
1a.  When someone clicks on the Photos tab on my Profile, they should see the Albums view (https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/104294083885937159989/albums ).  I should be able to freely organize the order of my albums (including moving Photos from Posts and Profile Photos from the top slots).
1b.  When someone clicks on an album, they should see all the photos in that album.  I should be able to freely organize the order of photos within the album.  I should be able to select a vertical or portrait image as an album cover without it being cropped or distorted.
1c.  There should be no view showing only “Highlights,” either inside or outside an album.   If there were, I should be able to select which images are included, what order they are shown in, and if necessary, to control any other structure (i.e. if they’re grouped by album, then I should be able to set the order of albums for showing Highlights).
1d.  I have no interest in “Photos of You” and when you placed it at the top of my Profile tab, I untagged myself in every image, and blocked all tagging of me (I then tagged myself in a few favorite photos that aren’t of me).  If it needs to exist for some audience, make it an album whose position I can determine (i.e. I can bury it at the bottom of the Albums view, while someone else could choose to put it at the top).

Request 2: Fix Event Behavior.
2a. If I post to an Event, it should result in a single post on my Profile and in others’ streams.  Currently it produces three: a “normal” post, an Event post, and an orphan image.
2b.  I should have the option of showing Event posts on my profile or not, just as I have for Community posts.  By default, nobody should see my posts to an Event unless they have accepted an invitation to that Event.
2c. If I post a photo to an Event, I should be able to manage that photo in an existing album (or not, as I choose), rather than having a new album created.
2d.  If someone clicks on one of my photos from an Event, it should go to the lightbox and then to my album or Profile, not to Event images by other people or Event posts unrelated to me.  My photos should not be buried in an Event album or downloadable in bulk with other people’s images through an Event.
I’ll address Event invitations and notifications separately.

Request 3: Stop Post Duplication
In addition to Event posts, almost all photo posts in private Communities have produced duplicate photos in the Community stream for a long time now, and recently that behavior is leaking into the main stream and creating clutter.  I’m sure you’re familiar with the problem, but one is the original post and the other corresponds to activity from the lightbox view.

Request 4: Allow Me to Sell.
This is slightly farther afield than the other requests, but a print on demand fulfillment service like the basics of Fine Art America or SmugMug would allow both me and Google to generate some revenue, without forcing me to try to push people outside G+.


B.  Community
Since I can’t present my photography properly or sell it, I must be staying for the social interaction – for me, the best and most unexpected benefit of being on G+.  There are a number of steps Google should take to facilitate that social interaction and to avoid inhibiting it.

Request 5:  Who Added Me?
5a.  The notification when people add me should lead to a complete list of all of them (as it used to a long time ago).  What’s more basic than that?
5b.  The notification when people add me should be a single item rather than two.  Why do I get two different kinds now, the one in the main list and the one down below of “other notifications” (my settings have always said notify me of everyone).
5c.  Notification emails should likewise include everyone who has added me.  One email a day would be fine, or whatever algorithm you used to use to decide how to bundle people was okay.

Request 6:  Who Tried to Interact with Me?
6a.  Show everyone who has plused, reshared or commented on my post, not just the “most relevant” 50.  Again, seems pretty elementary.  I appreciate every one, and it’s an important way of discovering new people.
6b.  Show all such activity in chronological order, so I can find the activity I haven’t seen yet.
6c.  A little farther afield: show me summaries or allow me to download raw data to find out, for example, who has plused how many of my last n posts or other similar metrics, to allow me to create/discover my own list of “engagers.”
6d.  Add detail to notifications, to enable me to see all the people who plused a post, and which posts (the “so-and-so plused many of your posts” notification is unhelpful; I end up having to open all of those posts to see what they were looking at).

Request 7: Who Have I Tried to Interact with?
7a.  Fix the “plus one bug”!  I don’t care so much that I can’t see how many people have plused my own posts, but it really costs me time and nuisance in going through my Circle Streams to try to see other people’s work.  Since I can’t see my own pluses on other people’s posts, unless an image was very memorable, I often can’t tell if I’ve already seen it or not, or where I am in a stream’s timeline.  It’s also time consuming as a theme curator and Community moderator when I can’t quickly determine which posts I’ve already seen.
7b.  When I go to a Circle Stream, show me every post, in reverse chronological order, by members of that Circle.  I always thought that was how it’s supposed to work, and I’ve even had Google employees tell me so, but now there are many, many posts missing when I do that.  There has to be a way to see what people are posting without going to every single Profile.
7c.  Fix hashtag search.  Why can’t Google make that work again?  When I search a hashtag, I want to see all posts using that hashtag, in reverse chronological order.  If you must have the “best of” as an option, fine, but I’m usually searching as a theme curator, and I want that day’s or week’s posts.  Now I get a few recent ones and then random junk from months ago that may or may not even include the tag.  Many people’s theme contributions are missed because they trust in hashtags and don’t directly notify curators or a theme Page.

Request 8: Improve My Control over what I See.
8a.  Allow me to filter posts by content type.  I would choose to block all GIFs, autoawesome, Stories, YouTube clips, Circle shares, Event posts...  Of course other people could make other choices.
8b.  Fix Event notifications.  Why do I receive endless notifications for Events I’ve never even viewed, much less replied to in any way?  I should never receive anything from an Event unless I’ve accepted an invitation to it.
8c.  End the plus-one spam, where something appears in my stream only because someone in my circles has plused it.  The positive yield for those is horrendously low.
8d.  I’ll understand if Google has to do what it can with the main stream for its own purposes, but I’d like to have much more granular control over the probabilities that material from different circles or communities will show up there.  If not, I’ll end up further abandoning it for Circle Streams (especially if they stop losing posts).
8e.  If I search within G+ from the photo albums view, I want to search for posts (not for images).

Request 9: Improve the Playing Field.
I don’t have as precise a request here, and I don’t want to rehash many lengthy conversations that have already been held, but my concern here is the theft of copyrighted images by G+ profiles presenting them as their own work.  While I understand that Google cannot accept a role as censor, Google could certainly be as quick as other social networks to address DMCA takedown requests and to block accounts of repeat violators.  There may also be dials behind the scenes that you could readily turn to somewhat disfavor stolen content relative to original work – but of course that may conflict with your engagement and advertising numbers.  I just want to be clear that when popular sharers of stolen images are rewarded with attention, it has a corrupting effect on the community and creates one more disincentive to share original art.


C.  Google’s Role
I understand that Google itself chooses to stay mostly out of the stream of conversation; that you don’t want to offer information about features or changes before they’re released; and that I’m not your customer.  But I think you do need to show some respect for the fact that your most active users, who spend hours on the service and help generate lots of interaction, are designing their G+ presence in many respects to work with the system.  When the system changes abruptly, it causes dislocations that can cost people many hours as they modify their behavior or repair their tools.

Request 10: Publicly Document Major Feature Changes.  Create an official Google presence, however minimal, that at least informs people when significant changes are made, and answer basic questions about the changes.  This would at least help people stop wasting their time just to figure out and define what actually happened.

Request 11: Publicly Acknowledge Top Known Bugs.  Create an official Google presence, however minimal, that at least informs people when you’re willing to acknowledge an issue and whether or not you intend to address it.  When things go wrong, there’s a massive amount of preventable scurrying.  I just saw clear acknowledgement on a recent post that you’re aware of the “plus one bug” and working on it.  Whether that took months to come out or whether the response was scattered on individual posts rather than being in a place that everyone can find, it would be much more helpful if it came from a single account that people would know to check.

Thanks, now and always, for listening, and I hope we can set G+ on a better course again.___Sharing this great post from Alex. Add your constructive comments to his post so that they reach those who are trying to help improve our GPlus experience.

An Unwelcome Visitor
or, what the Gardner brought in.
Now I don't do macros. It is too stressful involving too many pieces of equipment and body contortions. Give me bird photography any day! :
But I was tasked to get rid of this intruder who had unwittingly been brought indoors under the fortnightly plant rotation regime. My wife, of course, left me with instructions as she trooped off, not bothering to have anything to do with the awkward customer!
It is then that I decided to air a long forgotten macro lens and put it to use before I found a suitable alternate host for our guest.
Hope you will enjoy the shot while I ruffle the cupboards for ache suppressors! :)

With a whole product named after a feature, the fact that it does not work should tell us something about its future.

Google should be ashamed to be associated with the terribly flawed software of GPlus. For days now finding number of plusses on an image is an exercise in futility. If you plus a post, it disappears in another view. Forget improvements, it is a tough time to use what you have available. Buck up GPlus, you can do better! #googlefail

The Oriental Honey-buzzard
This large bird of prey feeds mainly on the combs, larvae, pupae and adults of bees and wasps, but will also take other prey on occasion. The slit nostril allows it to feed without being stung by bees/wasps.

Why I love Google :
This happens only on one day and only for you - but it does make you feel special :) This is my Google Search Bar today.
They may muddle around, but they know your weaknesses :)
And it links to my Plus page. How good is that! :D

I am pretty used to people resharing images that I post. But over a 100 reshares and counting is a bit much. Isn't it?

Sometimes it is not hard to see that Birds evolved from Dinosaurs
Lesser Adjutant (Leptoptilos javanicus) , Sundarbans, India.
This species is listed by IUCN as Vulnerable to extinction because its population is suspected to be rapidly declining as a result of hunting pressure, loss of nesting trees, conversion and degradation of wetlands and agricultural changes.
