Your photo must have been captured during this month. This Event remains open until 11:59 CST April 30th, so you have until then to create and enter your best photo from this month. (The dates on the Event are truncated, but you can submit a photo anytime, all month long.) Please read all rules (scroll down).

Gailen Mapes66,118Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  P-R - 20 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 +2014-07-20 11:44:54116204CC G+

This is a gathering between people, not circle pages.B) Your page or profile mainly has spam links to some kind of business where they you lend money or stuff like that.C) Your page or profile mainly doesn't have anything else but spam, ads or links to commercial sites.D) If you crop, modify in anyway, remove signature or upload someone else's picture as your own you will be automatically removed from my circles, banned and reported.Nobody can surf all the posts in every profile and check uploads continuously so I'd appreciate your help detecting wrongdoers in order to quickly block & remove them from my circles.Those of you helping me in this task may be included in a special circle of "Circle Moderators". People included in this special circle will automatically be added to "The Gathering Circle" promotion every week. ;-)E) People creating and selling their own stuff like their own Porcelain or Ceramic creations will still perfectly fit in the circle, I like promotingartists creating their own stuff, that is what we photographers also do anyway. I just want to keep away the spammers who flood our streams with lots of annoying ads and we all know how these profiles look like. ;-)I want this circle to be more a community, a gathering than just a bunch of people who doesn't know each other.Th2014-07-06 09:32:2847714797156CC G+

Ilene Waterman0Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  P-R - 20 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 June 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting May 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.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 +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2014-06-21 12:37:05116002CC G+

Wishing You A Very Happy Birthday, +Sumit Sen! :-)
Many Happy returns Of The Day!
You are virtually single-handedly responsible for the inspiration and the motivation, that resulted in my taking up Birding and Bird Photography with a passion, just a couple of years ago! To this day, you continue to assist so graciously in response to my numerous queries for Bird ID's and other information! May you continue to motivate and inspire us for many years to come! Do have a drink on me this evening, Sumit! Cheers! :-)))

Here's a Blue-throated Barbet (Megalaima asiatica) just for you! :-)

Chandigarh is a city and a union territory in the northern part of India that serves as the capital of the states of Punjab 60% and Haryana 40% . As a union territory, the city is ruled directly by the Union Government of India and is not part of either state. The city of Chandigarh was the first planned city in India post-independence in 1947 and is known internationally for its architecture and urban design. The master plan of the city was prepared by Le Corbusier, transformed from an earlier plan by the American planner Albert Mayer. Most of the government buildings and housing in the city, however, is designed by the Chandigarh Capital Project Team headed by Pierre Jeanneret, Jane Drew and Maxwell Fry.

The city tops the list of Indian States and Union Territories by per capita income in the country. The city was reported to be the cleanest in India in 2010, based on a national government study, and the territory also headed the list of Indian states and territories according to Human Development Index. The metropolitan of Chandigarh-Mohali-Panchkula collectively forms a Tri-city.___

I just Shared the Following

+Jeremy Cowart has published a PDF about his photographer's toolkit.  It's free and you can get a copy at http://books.noisetrade.com/jeremycowart/photographers-toolkit   It's well worth reading except for his statement that G+ is a "ghost town."  I had to refute that so I wrote the following.  I hope I didn't embarrass my friend Jasbir.  If I did, I am sorry...

+Jeremy Cowart - I've been paging through your "jeremy_cowart_toolkit" PDF and have to drop you a line...

First off, thanks!  It's really fun to see what the pros use.

I shoot Nikon (D800E and D7000) and mostly use old manual glass.  It's a hoot, but then I'm not under any pressure to perform except "feeding the beast" here on G+.

Which brings up my main reason for writing.  I see you havealmost 1.... more »

First off, thanks!  It's really fun to see what the pros use.

I shoot Nikon (D800E and D7000) and mostly use old manual glass.  It's a hoot, but then I'm not under any pressure to perform except "feeding the beast" here on G+.

Which brings up my main reason for writing.  I see you have almost 1.5 million followers, and your recent posts are getting about 30 to 70 "plus."  I on the other hand have "almost" 67K followers (G+ keeps dropping old profiles and it't been taking me forever to hit 67K) and get (according to +CircleCount) an average of 6 comments and 42 plusses per post - which includes my daily circle shares which typically get few comments or plusses.

I know some other amateurs like the incredible +Jasbir S. Randhawa who gets an average 21 comments, 4 reshares and 61 plusses per post.  He only has 36K followers as of this morning.

So you see, G+ is not a ghost town.  The interaction you get is in direct proportion to the work you put into it.  Jasbir works harder at it than I do... he's also a better photographer in a target rich environment.  (I am so jealous!)  He gets the interaction.  My circle shares get me followers.

So I've got a couple of suggestions if you want to get out of the G+ interaction back alley and onto the main street...

First - post your pictures - at least one per day to G+.  You can turn off the download feature if you are worried about that.  I have.

But posting your work here means that you are really here.  Reposting blog posts forces people off of G+ to read them and I for one very seldom do it.  In fact if more than 50% of a photographer's content is blog reposts, I drop them no matter how fantastic they are.  Your work is fantastic, I would love to follow you and promote you... but you get the idea...

Second - follow other people.  I can't see how many people you follow.  You might be following others...  But I see no interaction.  Once again you reap what you sow.  So share a circle or two of folks you admire on a regular basis.  You don't have to go all super-circle-ninja like I have, but you get the idea.

Also on this note, from time to time reshare posts from folks that you think are interesting.  Particularly newcomers and folks with only a few followers.  Use your 1.5 million bully pulpit to help others.  They will love you forever.  :-)

Third - stick around and interact.  Take a look at the posts of people you follow.  You will not be able to get all of them.  Are you kidding?  I doubt I get 1%!  But I try and at least hit "+" on the stuff that tickles my fancy.  If it's really really good I will leave a comment.  I think Jasbir leaves a lot more comments than I do and that may be a major part of his popularity.  You reap... oh, you get the idea.

So that's it.  Be here.  Interact.  Promote.  You will lose the ghost town feeling in no time!___
