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.

Gailen Mapes62,867Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  L - 18 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 April 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting March 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 Mapes2014-04-18 10:26:34675111

Justin Hill22,577338 Photographers :- Due to a post I saw float past in my stream today I am suddenly aware of the fact that I have not shared any of my circles for a very long time. So to rectify that here's my circle of photographers. If you are missing from this circle you are most probably in my other photography circle that is HDR based...if you are also missing from that one then I am sorry as I simply cannot add everyone that crosses my path or stream.

Thomas Hawk6,146,1772500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 3 of 5)This is the fifth time I've shared my photographer's circle on Google+.  I'm going to share it in 5 posts.  Last week I shared last name A-Da, and Da-Ho.  Today's , part 3 of 5, today, represents Ho-Mi.  I'll share the remaining two tomorrow and Thursday.  I originally shared my photographers circle at 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 photographers.  I'll probably share it again eventually when it gets to 3,000.A few notes about this circle.The criteria that I look for (and don't always get right) in this circle is that the photographer produce interesting and engaging photography.  I also look for people who are active in the community, post mostly their own work, and post regularly.  I'm looking more for people who post their own work and less of the noise stuff (gifs, links, non-photography, promotions, etc.).  I also like people who are positive, friendly, nice, helpful, etc. and dislike people who are mean, snarky, jerks, disrespectful, etc.I have a pretty well known bias against signatures and watermarks.  You will see very few photographers in my circles who use them.  I really hate the watermark debate and would rather not have it with folks.  I just don't like them -- it's my circle that I have to look at.  There are likely a few folks in here who use them who are friends of mine, but for the most part, this is a pretty watermark free circle.  It's totally cool if you love your watermark, it's just not something I really want to look at.  Please don't hate me for my aesthetic preference.  Finally, the photography community on Google+ is probably the best one on the internet today.  There is no way that I can possibly include all of the fine photographers worth following on G+.  There are wayyyyy too many.  These are just 2,500 that I personally have noticed.  I'm sure I left out some really amazing ones -- like you if you are not in this circle :)  I'll probably also totally kick myself when I realize that I accidentally left out a really obvious good one who may even be a friend of mine -- again, maybe even like you.  :)Stay tuned for parts 4 and 5 and thanks again to all of the great photographers on G+ who make this place such a delight to hang out.Part 1-5:  http://goo.gl/17ujpnPart 2-5:  http://goo.gl/3vn0OC*Note, Google Circles are terribly wonky.  It wouldn't let me add some photographers in my circle into these circles because of "domain errors."  If this affected you, sorry about that.2013-09-03 18:49:364857231117

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 #handpickedcircles   #sharedcircles#sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles#pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle#thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle  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.2013-06-23 10:57:00302117

Discover posts that your friends have +1’d

Many of the best photos, articles and videos we find online are the ones recommended by friends. So we're making it easier to discover these recommendations in your Google+ stream. Starting today:

- We'll occasionally highlight posts that were +1'd by people in your circles
- And if you +1 a post, we may highlight it to your friends as well

Circles help you control who can see your activity, as well as what appears in your main stream. So with today’s launch:

- You can visit your settings to decide who, if anyone, might see your +1s highlighted in the stream: http://goo.gl/CtZXk
- In all cases: friends will only see +1s and posts they already had permission to see, we’re just calling extra attention to them
- And of course: if you’re seeing too much activity from a given circle,you can... more »

Diamond in the rough

Right about now everyone is going to start looking back at 2013, I just realized that I only posted about 40 images to G+ on 2013, down from about 250+ in 2012. So sorry everyone, I think it was a case of social-burnout.

Here is to hoping for a more photo-productive 2014.

Where the rubber met the road
San Francisco, CA. 2013.

I'm a liberal, I say I support organized labor, their right to do collective bargaining, to strike, etc.

Last week a strike against Unity Health started across my house at St. Mary's Hospital. The strikers are using noise tactics to get noticed (whistles, horns, sirens), and it went on for about 24 hours (even through the night).

I was fairly tired of the noise, and the nuisance -- but then I remembered that my inconvenience is the least I could do to support union labor in America. --

Good luck Local 39.

Perspective'
Sequoia National Park, CA. 2013.

Its easy to loose perspective, spend too much time doing one thing, and you'll forget why the other things are so important. I guess the moments when you carefully give each part of your life its due, its called balance.

Like a lot of you I spend most of my time at work, or thinking about work. Then I get to spend some time with family and friends, and I'm reminded of what I really appreciate.

Gotta run .. late for work again.

American Heroes
San Francisco, CA. 2012.

This was going to be a really long post about who I think are today's american heroes. -- I had a really long post about my own path as an immigrant in this country.  But maybe thats just going to have to wait for another time.

I'll just say that today, I have a lot more hope that I did years ago.  Marriage equality has really turned the corner recently, and even if immigration reform does not happen now, the changing demographics gives me hope that its now a matter of time before it does.

About this photo: Shot at the Fleishacker Pool in San Francisco before its recent demise, I was captivated by the scene. Heavy processing with photoshop, lightroom and On-One perfect effects.

Hi folks! -- I'm so happy to be able to share this announcement today.

Discover posts that your friends have +1’d

Many of the best photos, articles and videos we find online are the ones recommended by friends. So we're making it easier to discover these recommendations in your Google+ stream. Starting today:

- We'll occasionally highlight posts that were +1'd by people in your circles
- And if you +1 a post, we may highlight it to your friends as well

Circles help you control who can see your activity, as well as what appears in your main stream. So with today’s launch:

- You can visit your settings to decide who, if anyone, might see your +1s highlighted in the stream: http://goo.gl/CtZXk
- In all cases: friends will only see +1s and posts they already had permission to see, we’re just calling extra attention to them
- And of course: if you’re seeing too much activity from a given circle, you can always turn down its volume, or exclude it from Home entirely: http://goo.gl/EFLOy

We're rolling out this feature over the next few days, so look for the new “+1’d this" header, and let us know what you think!

I dont understand why congress is complaining that companies take full advantage of the law.

Wasn't it congress that passed the same laws that Apple is living by, wasn't it congress that made it legal for apple to move money off-shore to avoid paying taxes?

The whole thing just reeks of political theater, big corporations lobby congress for favorable tax laws, then take full advantage of them, and then congress slaps them on the wrist and appears to be outraged, then next election, the same congress will be taking money from the same corporations to pass more favorable legislation for big business.

A real fix would take political courage, an overhaul of the tax system would mean upsetting the same people that are giving politicians money to run their campaigns, I just don't see that happening.

100% Handmade

Just so proud of my 2nd handmade watch strap. I'm a bit of a watch-nut and decided to make my own strap from scratch. Bought some tools, some leather off of ebay, tuned in to a few your-tube videos, a voila.

Next I'll take some decent pictures of the strap on a watch and on a wrist, but for now, cell-phone shots will do.

My Town
San Francisco, CA. 2012.

While I waited for the fireworks to start for NYE 2012, I captured 8 landscape shots to make up this super-wide panorama of the City By The Bay.

I suggest using G+'s zoom feature in the lightbox (click on the image, then use your mouse's scroll wheel), to try and find your favorite landmark in the city.

My favorite one has to be the beacon on top of the Transamerica Building, lit up for the holidays.

Some good info about the new photos features ...

*Welcome to #AutoEnhance  & #AutoAwesome *

Earlier today at Google I/O, +Vic Gundotra announced #AutoEnhance  and #AutoAwesome  - two new features to help make sharing your photos more fun and more creative. To help you become more familiar with these tools, here’s a brief Q&A along with some sample images to enjoy. 

Can you give me some more details on how Google+ will enhance my  photos?
Sure! Auto Enhance analyzes your photos as you upload them, then optimizes brightness, contrast, details, noise, focus, and many other factors in order to help them really shine. Just click on the Enhanced hover button on newly uploaded photos to see the results. You can also manually turn on Auto Enhance on older images by clicking on ‘More’ and select ‘Auto Enhance’.

Will the Auto Enhanced version overwrite my original photos?
No. We will never overwrite your original photo and Auto Enhance can be removed and reapplied at any time.

Will Google retroactively apply Auto Enhance to all of the photos that I’ve already uploaded?
Auto Enhance will only be applied to new images that you upload (via Auto Backup or to your Albums) and every image you add will always be private until you’re ready to share it. We will never apply Auto Enhance to images that you’ve already shared.

That’s great! So what’s Auto Awesome?
Whereas Auto Enhance helps make your uploaded images shine bright, Auto Awesome will look at your photos and create fun, new images to share your favorite moments. When we find the right arrangement of images, we’ll generate new Auto Awesome images and place them alongside your original photos. Just like Auto Enhance photos, they’ll remain private until you choose to share them, and we’ll never replace your images. 

What sort of photos can I expect to see with Auto Awesome?
With Auto Awesome, we’ll create animated images with our Motion photos, ultra wide sweeping scenes with Pano, and even help you show all of the details in your image with HDR. On top of that, if you’re at a party or with a group of friends, we’ll make it easy for you to create photobooth style collages with Mix and put together great looking group shots with Smile photos.
