Gailen Mapes66,836Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  A-C - 14 of 30Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.           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 July 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting June 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 +2014-08-14 10:24:52192005CC G+

Supernova

I suppose at first sight this might look quite surreal but actually these are some flagpoles at the Olympic Complex of Athens, Greece, seen from the ground against a very dramatic sky right after the sunset.

I have tried to photograph them a few times in the past, always with medium or no success at all.  On this particular day I had noticed some great light and clarity, plus some wonderful clouds even from the morning, so when I got back at home in the afternoon I started thinking about any photo possibilities. Most of the afternoon passed without doing anything as half of me wanted to jump out and photograph whatever was in front of me and the other half was completely lazy after some hard day at work.

 As the sun was about to set my active half seemed to prevail against my lazy one, so I grabbed my bag and as I didn’t have much time left I decided tohea... more »

Midday Rio

Midday is supposed to be the worst time for photography, especially with strong sunlight (as we usually have here in Greece) and this is mostly true.

But it can happen on a rare occasion, like when you have in front of you a wonderful structure like the Rio-Antirio bridge and some interesting waves in the sea, that even the midday harsh light cannot prevent you from capturing something which can be considered at least decent. Mind you this came almost as it is straight out of the camera, I had to do just a little bit of processing.

You can read a bit about the Rio-Antirio bridge, the world's longest multi span cable-suspended bridge here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rio%E2%80%93Antirrio_bridge

Riomaggiore, Cinque Terre

This is the wonderful little village of Riomaggiore, the first of the five villages of the "Cinque Terre" in northern Italy.
I was really glad to be back recently and despite not spending too much time there I had the chance to shoot a few long exposures, something I wanted to do for a long time.

Heraeon Sunset

Yesterday along with my friend Hovanes and his lovely sis (and my good assistant ;-) Lizet, we drove to Cape Heraeon, near Loutraki, Greece,  to get some moonlight photos (more on this to come).

On our way and while we drove round a bend from where you can see for the first time the whole Cape from afar, a magnificent sunset was taking place in front of us, so we didn't miss the chance to take a few photos from up there.

A welcomed bonus by mother nature!

Fyropotamos, Milos


Another photo of one of my favorite small fishing villages in MIlos island, Greece.

The decayed door in the foreground belongs to one of these Milos-trademark houses called "syrmata", used by the fishermen to store their boats in the winter time. Don't be fooled by the almost still water seen here, the sea can get very rough at these places...

Tsigrado, Milos


These are the wonderful emerald waters of the Tsigrado beach (actually the one right next to it) in the Greek island of Milos.
 
So far this summer I'm too busy to go to the sea (or shoot any photos of it) so seeing everyone posting summer photos, I decided to post one from last year.
 
Thankfully summer is still young, so I hope I'll manage to have a swim or two in a place like this...

Plathiena beach, Milos



I have been way too busy lately and haven't been to the sea at all this year, so I thought I might post a photo of our first swim from last year...

This was shot at the wonderful beach of Plathiena in Milos island, Greece, during the Easter holidays. Usually I'm not swimming until the weather is really hot, but even though it was just the first days of May, the sea and the whole place was so inviting that I could not resist taking a dive or ten...

Alex Rings

Not the kind of photo that I post usually but there's a small story behind this.

I suppose most of you don't know that I'm a goldsmith (and I make specifically wedding rings, selling them wholesale to the jeweller shops) 

Last week I had a special order by a client who asked for these extra wide rings from polished rose gold and matte white gold.
Not my everyday workflow and quite challenging to make right, they took me about a whole day to make but they came out really nice so I wanted to photograph them to somehow "document" the whole thing. My setup was quite quick and simple but they don't look too bad...

...and yes in case anyone wonders, my nick-name "alexring" comes from my job...

The re-shot

This is somehow a reshot of a photo I had shot back in 2008 from the same spot  in Manarola, one of the "Cinque Terre" villages in northern Italy.

I liked the result of the old one, so during my recent visit I was looking to somehow replicate it. I could not find the exact angle (maybe the plants have changed a bit in those years) but at least I tried to do something similar, only with a wider lens.
Initially I had shot three shots with the intention of merging them (from darker to brighter) but this is all from processing the middle one.
Took me quite a long time to process due to heavy distortions (because the camera was looking down) and difficult light but in the end (and thanks to the nice clouds) I think I like it at least as much as my 2008 "original".

You can see the 2008 photo here:

The Wave II

The Mediopadana highspeed-railway station near Reggio Emilia designed by the famous architect Santiago Calatrava.

This is the second of the last two photos from this angle, shot in a hurry before we left (as the spouses were getting bored to death...) and as the rest were waiting for me, during our recentr Flickr meet in northern Italy.
 
Funny thing is that I had my reservations about following the others to the station as it was about two hours driving from were we stayed, but in the end getting there proved to be the right decision as I got some of my most favorite photos from the whole meet.
Seems the weather helped with the whole decision as it was quite rainy to do anything else but it proved to be great for this place.

Manarola, Cinque Terre

Another one of my Cinque Terre photos, shot during our recent Flickr-meet and I must say one of my very faves!
Though this was my fourth visit to the place, I had been up this hill just once and as I remembered the view to be quite spectacular, I really wanted to revisit.
This time the weather was on my side and there were some very nice clouds on the sky (unlike the completely cloudless one from my last visit) Combine that with the fact that we were in the middle of spring and everything was in full bloom and you can see why I think I really got what I was hoping for...

This time the weather was on my side and there were some very nice clouds on the sky (unlike the completely cloudless one from my last visit) Combine that with the fact that we were in the middle of spring and everything was in full bloom and you can see why I think I really got what I was hoping for...

Vernazza, Cinque Terre


This is Vernazza, the fourth of the "Cinque Terre" villages in north Italy, shot during our recent Flickr-meet.
My Flickr-friends moved on towards Monterosso, but I stayed back as I felt I had some "open accounts" with Vernazza. You see, last time I had visited it, more than 10 years ago, I didn't made any really good photos, so I had to try this time...
The weather was quite flat so I didn't expect any spectacular results but I'm quite satisfied by the look of this.

The Wave I

Mediopadana highspeed-railway station near Reggio Emilia designed by the famous architect Santiago Calatrava.
 
This is the first of the last two photos from this angle, shot in a hurry before we left (as the spouses were getting bored to death...) and as the rest were waiting for me, during our recentr Flickr meet in northern Italy.
 
Funny thing is that I had my reservations about following the others to the station as it was about two hours driving from were we stayed, but in the end getting there proved to be the right decision as I got some of my most favorite photos from the whole meet.
Seems the weather helped with the whole decision as it was quite rainy to do anything else but it proved to be great for this place.

Little Red Riding Hood lost in the forest


Our rental car, the Fiat 500L (or Little Red Riding Hood) climbing the narrow roads of Alpi Apuane towards the Campocecina viewing point over the famous Carrara marble quarries.
A nice and fun (not so) little car!

Riomaggiore, Cinque Terre

This is the wonderful little village of Riomaggiore, the first of the five villages of the "Cinque Terre" in northern Italy.
I was really glad to be back recently and despite not spending too much time there I had the chance to shoot a few long exposures, something I wanted to do for a long time.

Manarola, Cinque Terre



This is a shot I have wanted to do for a long time.

This was my fourth visit to this place in that last 15 years but the previous one was back in 2008 when I only had the D50 and knew nothing about long exposures.

So it was on my "future plans" to go back with a better camera and shoot some LEs, which was fulfilled during our recent Flickr-meet at the area.

Is it up to the expectations? Maybe a little rougher see would help but I'm rather pleased with what I've got.

Anyway I need something to dream about for when I'll go back again with that D800 ;-))

Varena, lago di Como

It's Friday today so it's time for my "regular" weekly post of one of my photos from Italy, shot last summer on our holidays around the great Italian lakes.

This is the wonderful village of Varenna at the east coast of Lago di Como.
We got there (all by chance) at exactly the right time of the day and really liked it so much that though it was quite far from where we stayed, we visited it twice.

This one was shot on our first visit, a few moments after we arrived. Glad to report that after I was done with photography we've had some yummy pizza at one of the trattorias  you see on the right :-)

Eremo di Santa Caterina del Sasso

This is the Hermitage of Santa Caterina del Sasso on Lago Maggiore in Italy.

I had visited it for the first time about ten years ago and last summer when we decided that we'd be at the area again, I knew I had to re-visit it.

Being together with the family on vacation doesn't leave you free to serve your photo "duties", so we happened to visit the place on a rather bad (for photography) hour of the day (too early) when the sun was behind the big rock face and most of it was dark.

Luckily there were other interesting sights too in the area and we didn't drove away, so a couple of hours later I got "permission" from the family and drove some 10 km's back to the hermitage to take among others this one, which I must say came out quite as I had imagined it earlier in the morning.

Checking the EXIF (and the clouds on the sky) you may notice that this is a 176 sec. exposure and then you may wonder how on earth these people stood so still for such a long time! Well, actually it's a blend of two photos, one LE for the sky and water and a normal one for the ground. The ground came out a little soft on the LE (rather due to the f18 I used to avoid adding another ND filter on top of my 10-stop one) so it came handy to have a normal exposure taken at exactly the same spot.

Stars and Stripes forever...

I suppose my American friends will appreciate this more...
This is Russian pianist Valery Kuleshov (whom I had never heard before but found him through this video and a little research I did afterwards )
 He plays (fantastically) my favorite "Stars and Stripes forever" by John Philip Sousa which was transcribed for piano by the great Vladimir Horowitz and you can find in so many interpretations today. The thing is that when Kuleshov wanted to play it back in the 80's, there was no published transcription available, so he had to make his own by listning to Horowitz's LPs! Anyone knowing just a bit about music must realize how difficult this is! Horowitz himself learned about the Russian's feat and after listening to Kuleshov's recordings of his own transcriptions he wrote to the young musician: “I was not only delighted byyo... more »

This video here shows obviously the encore of some concert (where the orchestra musicians don't really know what the soloist is gonna play) and it's really priceless seeing the faces of the musicians and some of the audience, especially as the piece reaches its conclusion. They're left pretty speechless! ___

Lago di Piano, Italy

I took this photo at the small Lago di Piano in Italy, situated between the more famous  Lago di Lugano and Lago di Como and though I was quite disappointed by the look of it on my camera screen, it turned out pretty good after some careful processing. Actually, due to the huge dynamic range it's four bracketed shots merged manually in one in Photoshop.

You can read a quite detailed tutorial about how I did it (which is how I generally work at situations like this) here:

Supernova

I'm re-sharing this photo I shot a few months ago at the Olympic Complex of Athens, Greece, as this is my submission for the 3rd series  of the wonderful project  #PlusOneCollectionIII  run by +Ivan Makarov and +Andy Lee 

Despite the Sci-Fi appearence, these are some fancy flagpoles seen from the ground against a very dramatic sunset-lit sky.

To get a better perspective of the flagpoles arrangement have a look at the two following BTS photos (taken on another day):

Summer Storm

This is an old photo taken near the town of Brakel in Germany.

It was August of 2007 and I was driving on a national road near Brakel, when I noticed that the sky that was all clear and sunny up to that moment, started getting cloudy and darker.

OK no big deal you might say, but as the moments passed it was getting REALLY dark and threatening. I stopped the car and looking behind me I saw a big front of black clouds approaching my area. “Wow” I thought to myself “I’ve got to photograph this but I need a better scenery that just a national road…”

So I got into the car again and hurried driving some more, looking at the minor roads to the left and right of my road. Finally I found one to the right that seemed to go a little upwards and thought that it might give me some good view. Drove around 1 km in this, stopped and got out of thecar quickly... more »

Finally I found one to the right that seemed to go a little upwards and thought that it might give me some good view. Drove around 1 km in this, stopped and got out of the car quickly as the clouds were already above me and some drops started hitting the windshield, thinking that was my last chance to shoot a couple of photos before the heavens opened. Indeed I took just a few photos and then hurried back into the car as some cats and dogs started falling from the sky… That was a severe storm but luckily it lasted just for 15-20 minutes after which it was all back to nice and clear…

This is my original pp from that date, it’s not the best possible but it doesn’t look bad either, so I’ve left it as it is.

Found it again today for a challenge in flickr and thought I might post it here too.

I'll be back...

That was my first visit ever to Kalohori, right out of the city of Thessaloniki, northern Greece.
It's near the confluence of three major Greek rivers that form a large Delta and quite a few lagoons. In the past I've seen some wonderful photos from the place from many good Greek photographers and of course I wanted to visit for a long time but didn't have the chance as it is quite far from my home.

Finally I found the chance last December when we stayed with friends for a few days at the town of Katerini.
Unfortunately the weather was quite bad for most of our time there and didn't allow us to do a daily excursion all together as we had in mind, but that didn't prevent me from waking up too early on our last day, drive the 80km's to Kalohori into the night with constant rain and strong winds hitting the car and finally arrive... more »

Many interesting things and places to photograph but the weather was going from bad to worse and I could not even get out of the car.

A drove around for a couple of hours and was very lucky to be at the right place during the only (little) pause of the storm, just enough to shoot this photo and another one I may post soon. After a few minutes I had to throw everything back in the trunk of the car as heavy rain and wind started again...

It's sure good having a photo or two instead of nothing but I'll definitely be back...

Misty morning

I’m definitely not a bird shooter and I must admit I don’t get any particular pleasure by shooting or even seeing other people’s bird photos.
But sometimes (very rarely I reckon) things change and some birds look as if they carry a big sign on their forehead sayin’ “pleeeease shoot me!”

That was the case in that particular misty winter morning at the Paralia Katerini’s town (the coastal suburb of Katerini town) in northern Greece. Not much more to shoot due to the weather but these birds came out just right. I had to wait quite a bit till all four rocks where occupied by the birds (and take the right posture too) but eventually it all worked out OK. Too little pp and presto! The minimal is ready...

Not sure if it’s my best photo of December as I shot quite many (most of which I have not even reviewed yet), but it’s quite different from what I usually shoot and I’m quite pleased by the result and that’s enough!

My 2014 "Italian Lakes" Calendar

Yes, it's this time of the year (I mean I'm ALWAYS late...) that I've finally managed to put together the 2014 edition of my Calendar.

For those that don't know the history behind these Calendars I'll say that from 2007 and on, I make a Calendar each year with some of the photos I shot during out summer holidays (usually somewhere around Europe)
This time we visited the area of the great northern Italian lakes so most photos are from there (though two of them are shot in Switzerland on some brief visits we've had there - remember that Laggo Maggiore and Lago di Lugano are shared between Italy and Switzerland)

Monte Baldo, Italy



Some wonderful light and fast rolling clouds on the top of Monte Baldo in the provinces of Trentino and Verona, Italy

It's really easy to get up there, as long as you're willing to wait for endless hours in the huge queues to take the "Funivia Malcesine- Monte Baldo", at lest in the middle of the summer when I visited.

Forget all about it when you're on the top though...

Some wonderful light and fast rolling clouds on the top of Monte Baldo in the provinces of Trentino and Verona, Italy

It's really easy to get up there, as long as you're willing to wait for endless hours in the huge queues to take the "Funivia Malcesine- Monte Baldo", at lest in the middle of the summer when I visited.

Forget all about it when you're on the top though...

Varenna sunset

This is the wonderful village of Varenna at the east coast of Lago di Como, Italy.
We got there (all by chance) at exactly the right time of the day and really liked it so much that though it was quite far from where we stayed, we visited it twice.
A most memorable place indeed!

...seems I'm having a problem notifying all the curators I want. And to be honest I'm fed up with G+ having all kinds of silly problems...
Why flickr never has any interface problem at all??

Usually I don't post non-photo related posts, but this is one of my all-time favorite piano pieces and this version is one of the very best I've heard. Hats-off!

Baia del Vento

This is the lovely Baia del Vento (bay of the wind) beach, on lake Garda, Italy, one of the best beaches on the lake to swim (of which I don't care too much being a Greek and spoilt by the Greek seas) but also one of the best to photograph (of which I care too much!)

We stayed at the nearby village of Puegnago for a week and I was lucky to discover this (very difficult to find) beach on the very first morning. Needless to say that I visited it every single morning as I saw there was lots of potential there.

Unfortunately on the first few days the weather was so good (for the rest of the tourists and bad for me) that every morning there was not a single bloody cloud on the sky! Thinking about it, I must have skipped one morning's outing as I woke up, saw the cloudless sky, thought "...hmmm, one of the same again" and went back to... more »

But on the afternoon of the fifth day there was a big (wonderful) summer storm over the lake that left many promises for a nice cloudy sunrise. So next morning I was there by 5.30 and at long last, there it was! In front of my eyes a very special scenery, just as I had imagined it! I shot many photos at various spots as the beach is quite large but I think this one in front of a villa's boathouse is my fave of the bunch.

Let the good times roll

Last Saturday I drove to my fave decaying jetty in Aspropyrgos.

Have not been there for almost a year and though many times when the weather seemed fine I wanted to go, real life prevented me from doing so.

It was already late when I decided to go, so the best light was rather over by the time I got there, but that did not prevent me from shooting a couple of decent ones. Seems that this one is my fave of the bunch.

Tymfristos early morning view

This is the view from Tymfristos mountain in central Greece, right above the town of Karpenisi, to the south-east, towards the Vardousia and Giona mountains (with  a mean distance of 45km).
These two, along with Tymfristos are three of the highest mountains in central Greece, each one close to 2.500m/8200ft. 

I had been in the area for a corporate photo job, but despite my fatigue, my "artsy" self could not resist from getting up too early in case I'd shoot anything good. Not the fog I was hoping for, but at least this one didn't turn out bad...

Shot early one chilly November morning just a couple of km's away from my hotel.

Lochan an Ais, Scotland

I was looking for a photo to submit to a certain Challenge in flickr, themed "Wild Places" where everything in sight should be completely unspoiled by any human intervention.

Well, it was more difficult than I though (as seascapes were not allowed), so looking at various photos, shot at some wilderness, I remembered this one.

This is the little lake (as the name suggests) Lochan an Ais in the Scotland highlands, looking towards the popular Stac Pollaidh peak, as I photographed it one cold summer morning back in 2011.

Although I didn’t have to do any wild hike to get there (the main A835 road is right on my back), the view towards this way is completely unspoiled by any modern “additions”, making it my choise for the Challenge.

This is Isola dei Pescatori (Fishermen's Island) in Lago Maggiore, Italy, as seen from the town of Stresa on the shores of the lake.

Some wonderful light on that summer evening so I hope I did it justice...

This is the lovely small village of Vira on the Swiss side of Lago Maggiore, very close to the Swiss-Italian borders (that don't really exist...)

Took this on a lovely summer evening trying to capture the last golden light.

Weee!!

My little ones having some fun with the fallen leaves, something they seemed to enjoy pretty much since it's quite a rare sight in Athens were we live.

Shot at Mount Vitsi, near the town of Kastoria, northern Greece, last year.

Our Book is here!

Very proud to announce that our 4th book is here! We're a bunch of photographers/friends from all around the world, all members of the "Nikon DSLR forum" in flickr (don't get confused by the name, we have all kinds of brands) and what started as a crazy idea four years ago has evolved into something no one wants to miss every year.
Being a part of the production team makes me even more proud for this "child" of ours.
A big thanks to "Leeechy" +John Leech for putting together the best of our books yet!

And announcing the hardcover version of As we see it 2013 - full preview on Blurb. My thanks to everyone who contributed and made it the fantastic book that it is :~)___Our Book is here!

Supernova

I suppose at first sight this might look quite surreal but actually these are some flagpoles at the Olympic Complex of Athens, Greece, seen from the ground against a very dramatic sky right after the sunset.

I have tried to photograph them a few times in the past, always with medium or no success at all.  On this particular day I had noticed some great light and clarity, plus some wonderful clouds even from the morning, so when I got back at home in the afternoon I started thinking about any photo possibilities. Most of the afternoon passed without doing anything as half of me wanted to jump out and photograph whatever was in front of me and the other half was completely lazy after some hard day at work.

Most of the afternoon passed without doing anything as half of me wanted to jump out and photograph whatever was in front of me and the other half was completely lazy after some hard day at work.

 As the sun was about to set my active half seemed to prevail against my lazy one, so I grabbed my bag and as I didn’t have much time left I decided to head to the Olympic Complex which is the only decent place I could think of, very close to my home. Reaching there, the clouds in the sky had started taking some unbelievable colors from the setting sun and I just stood still, looking around like an idiot, as everything looked really fantastic! I really didn’t know where to start shooting so I decided to head for these flagpoles as they are quite close to the entrance and I had arranged to meet my friend +helen sotiriadis  there to give her something. 

First I tried some long exposure shots but they didn’t work out well, as the sky came out quite fussy, not really good, so rather at the last moments of the light show (which btw started to seem like something had exploded in the sky!) I got a few shots of it as it really looked at the time. Mind you that whatever process I did on the photo was just on the poles, I left the sky really untouched, as it seemed that it was so good that whatever I tried to do on it just made it worse!

After a while Helen came, we admired the scenery and soon the whole nature show was over.  We talked for a while and then split it, but I was glad (and pretty sure) that I had taken at least one good photo. 

You can see a bit of how the place looks like, in the photos below (taken on another previous visit) :

Lake Doxa twilight

Shot this back in 2011 at Doxa lake in Greece just before it got completely dark. I had forgot all about it but kinda stumbled on it and processed it again as I was looking for a photo to submit to a challenge in our friendly forum in Flickr. So I thought I might post it here too as I haven't been active for quite a long time.

Midday Rio

Midday is supposed to be the worst time for photography, especially with strong sunlight (as we usually have here in Greece) and this is mostly true.

But it can happen on a rare occasion, like when you have in front of you a wonderful structure like the Rio-Antirio bridge and some interesting waves in the sea, that even the midday harsh light cannot prevent you from capturing something which can be considered at least decent. Mind you this came almost as it is straight out of the camera, I had to do just a little bit of processing.

Rio sunrise



The other day I stayed for a night at Rio, Greece (ok not the Rio you might expect...) and didn't miss the chance to do for the first time some "proper" photos of the famous Rio-Antirrio bridge, the world's longest multi-span cable-stayed bridge with a length of 2.880m (9.449ft), connecting Peloponnese with the mainland Greece.

Woke up before 6.00 and was there while it was still completely dark (thankfully sunrise is a bit late nowadays), so I had the chance to witness and shoot all the changing light from darkness to bright light. As it was getting brighter the sky was nothing special (too good for photography), so I think this one with the very dim blue light on the sky is my fave.

PS. When I arrived there, there were already a few fishermen around doing their thing. I was looking at them and they were looking at me and... more »

...and then the heavens opened...

This was one of the most dramatic scenes I have witnessed lately.

We were in Lago di Garda (Garda lake), Italy, during a very sunny and hot day of the past August, when suddenly the weather changed completely, as some really strong winds started blowing and some really dark clouds started gathering.

I thought it was a good time to go near the lake for some photography and by the time I got near Desenzano del Garda at the very south end of the lake, I was facing an unbelievable scene: The north of the lake was completely covered by threatening dark blue-ish clouds (you could tell that at some parts it was raining heavily), while the water in the foreground had that familiar bright turquoise Garda color, as the sun was still penetrating the much lighter clouds over our south part of the lake. As if that was not enough, the sky seemed to... more »

As if that was not enough, the sky seemed to be separated in two, as if an invisible line was separating the dark-blue far away clouds from the grey not-so-light-anymore ones above our heads.

Watching this from my car window as I was driving, I knew I had to stop quickly as such spectacular light shows never seem to last for long. Thankfully I found very soon a good stretch of beach with a good parking place and had the chance to shoot quite a few different shots with some strong waves crashing against the rocks, before the setting sun and fading light put an end to the show and my effort (not to mention that a few minutes after I packed my things, a hell of a rain started, which luckily didn't last for very long...)

This one is stitched from two different shots taken one right after the other. One is a long exposure of 30 secs to smooth out the water and the other one is a “normal” shot of 1 sec to capture the sky better as the LE was not long enough to give an interesting motion to the clouds, it just “managed” to blur their nice and contrasty shapes.

As a last note I must add that whenever I look at the photo now, it looks even to me very dramatic and maybe quite over-processed but I must assure you that it is very close to the actual scene and I’m really happy I was so lucky to be there, see it and capture it…

Got published big time (but no-one really knows...)

Today I was having a quick look at my dad's newspaper ("TA NEA" which if I'm not wrong is the largest circulation daily newspaper in Greece) and my eyes stopped on a photo that looked quite familiar. The photo - which you can see here:  http://i88.photobucket.com/albums/k186/alexring_bucket/AthensBikeFestival2.jpg
was from last year's Athens Bike Festival, (where I happened to be the official photographer) and it certainly looked a lot like one I had shot back then.  

I looked at the photo credits and just saw the name of the organizers (which is not strange as in many cases you sell them the photos and they use them at wish without having to mention the photographer as you sell them all your rights too)

Btw I have already been contacted to shoot this years Bike Festival (starting at 20 Sept.) Who knows, maybe I'll see another photo of mine in next year's newspapers...  ___
