HACK THIS PHOTO4,464*PLEASE READ - NEW FUN TO BE HAD!!!!* *Hack This Photo* _Our Photo.  Your Spin._ *(Open for the entire week)* Welcome to a special edition of @116361882895448900841!  The photo editing game where you take our photo and twist it, turn it, crop it, chop it, texturize it, pixelize it, make it your own.  Then post it for all of G+ to see! Everyone is welcome to play – no formal training, expensive software or previous experience is required to join us.  Use an app on your phone, the G+ photo editor, GIMP, Lightroom, CS6 – it’s up to you. Tonight we're joining forces with the fantastic @104600718104833273883 folks to explore the land down under, *Queensland* and the *Great Barrier Reef*!!! So what is @104600718104833273883, you ask? We'll let this snippet from their About page do the talking... _This project started long, long ago in a faraway land when photographer Ken Rathke felt that his creativity needed a boost one rainy day. It began as a a fun experiment with creatively processed images of California and blossomed into a weekly foray to exciting destinations - all virtually of course on the Artistic Google Magic Bus!_ _So where can we find travel pictures for screen capture and creative processing? Google Maps - Street View is perfect. It's Frugal National Geographic for those of us that like to dream. The challenge is to find the right angle, subject matter, cropping, composition and presentation._ _We wanted the images to have a certain raw quality that was already there, but hidden until brought out by the creative mind of the Artistic Googler._ To Play: Tonight we're giving you two options of playing. You can either simply HACK the photo we're supplying by clicking on the link below: https://plus.google.com/photos/116361882895448900841/albums/5796967343539305697/5796967346267396802 Note that the image supplied is based on the Google Street View and is copyright Google.

But how do we actually get to the Street View images of the reef?... For now, the only portals to Street View of the reef appear to be here, but once you're in, you can use the GSV navigation controls and arrows._ http://maps.google.com/help/maps/streetview/gallery.html#!/ocean _On this page, be sure that you select a site in the Great Barrier Reef to explore because there are other reefs in other parts of the world shown here also and the cognoscenti know that Hawaii isn't part of Oz..._  Remember that this is a speed hack, so open the shot in the editor of your choice, start your favorite song, and have at it!  When the song is done, so are you!

Many of the people in this circle are among the most interactive people on G+. Contribute top their themes, get to know them,  I think it will enhance your G+ experience.Best Regards+Charles Lupica ────────The circle has been checked for accuracy by most of the involved curators.  I would also like to thank +Steve Gill +Jason Borg +Manuella Betaille for their help in checking the existing themes.There are now over 400 themes, theme pages, and perhaps as many as 1000 curators but not all themes are created equal. I often talk about what it means to me to curate a theme and how I view things. To me, the best themes are the ones that have highly interactive curators. The vast majority also have a page to compliment their theme. A theme page is a great place for the curators to share information about the theme and to list the name or names of the people currently curating the theme. IMHO, a good theme page should provide information about the theme, how to participate, and who is curating the theme.  Most theme pages share some of the best work.  A few share all submissions.There are many themes that were created and then abandoned by their creator so I wanted to know, "Which themes rock?". I asked the G+ community to tell me which themes have highly interactive curators and an active community. This circle is based on community feedback and my personal view of what it means to have a theme that rocks.  ────────A good place to start if you are new to themes is perhaps the about page of +Monochrome Monday or the about page of +Daily Photography Themes +Daily Fine Art Themes.  If there are any themes that you feel rock that aren't mentioned, be sure to add a comment to this post, include the name of the theme, what day of the week the theme takes place or daily, the name of the page, and the name of the curators.  If there is no page, please state this.  Themes without a page are less likely to be listed but some very interactive themes don't have a page. 2012-08-29 13:45:173048691106
Billy Wilson417,065Virtual Travelers CircleThis circle was created of those who have an interest in exploring the world using Google Maps/Earth/Hangouts/Street View from the comfort of their own home. I made this circle based on nominations, people claiming they had an interest, those who were part of +Artistic Google, and those who are part of +Virtual Photo Walks™. I hope this circle helps strengthen and grow a community around this interest, so please consider sharing this post with your friends. You can add these people to your circles by clicking "View Shared Circle". +Artistic Google is a theme on G+ where people find spots in Google Street View and capture them and edit them. +Virtual Photo Walks™ is something started by +John Butterill and +Bruce Garber that uses Google+ hangouts to bring people to locations around the world they normally wouldn't be able to get to.  #CircleShare   #GoogleStreetView   #Google  2012-08-23 19:00:38102212937
Jeff Sullivan341,904Daily Photography Themes on G+: Theme Page Circle v2.0Daily photo themes are a great way to share your best work.  Many of the theme creators/curators also maintain a Google+ page on the theme, so following the daily theme pages can be a great way to find creative work by others for enjoyment and inspiration.  Some of the pages highlight some of the curator's favorite participant contributions, others are set up for participants to tag the page in their photo and automatically have their work appear in the page's stream.  Lists of the daily themes, with notes on any participation details, are maintained by the following people:+Eric Leslie  - http://ericleslie.com/guides/daily-photography-themes-googleplus/+Kol Tregaskes  - http://bit.ly/kolgplusphotodailyhashtags+Ray Bilcliff  - http://trueportraits-nature.com/2011/11/g-photographers-daily-themes/Typically to participate you simply Include the theme hashtag, in the text of your post, and others can find it by clicking on the hashtag or in searches.  If you want interaction though, don't sit around waiting: you get what you give.  Be the interaction you want to see!  Or just browse photos and get inspired.  There's no "one right way" to enjoy Google+; interaction isn't a prize to win or something to compete for.  I only mention it in the context of making new friends with similar interests.  Over the course of the past year, I've met a lot of fun and inspiring people, many of whom I now get out and shoot with regularly, and others I hope to meet and shoot with some day.  Whatever you're here for, a photography theme can categorize images in ways which may help you find the types of images you'd most like to see or photographers you might like to meet.I've found 394 themes so far, but if I've missed some, please mention them in the comments and I'll include them in a future update!2012-08-10 01:07:41394161339

Jeff Sullivan131,363Daily Photography Themes on G+: Theme Page Circle v1.0Daily photo themes are a great way to share your best work and to find creative work by others for enjoyment and inspiration. Many of the theme creators/curators also maintain a Google+ page on the theme.  Some of the pages highlight some of the curator's favorite participant contributions, others are set up for participants to tag the page in their photo and automatically have their work appear in the page's stream.  I like to discover new photographers and to get inspired by great photos, so for the +#SelflessSunday Theme on G+ page I look for a few of those types of posts to share, rather than have the page simply duplicate-post all contributions (and mirror the "see all posts" functionality that clicking on the hashtag already performs).  I'd also be concerned that auto-posting all contributions might set the page up for a high volume of self-promotional spam.  I'm not trying to advocate on approach though, if any curators would like to offer how/why they manage their pages in a certain way, that's fine, I'm open to suggestions.  I also like to catch up on curation later in the week when I can see all posts, and the ones I highlight can be discovered by community members who weren't online when the original post flew by on the stream.Lists of the daily themes, with notes on any participation details, are maintained by the following people:+Eric Leslie - http://ericleslie.com/guides/daily-photography-themes-googleplus/+Kol Tregaskes - http://bit.ly/kolgplusphotodailyhashtags+Ray Bilcliff - http://trueportraits-nature.com/2011/11/g-photographers-daily-themes/Just Include the theme hashtag, like today's #SelflessSunday, in the text of your post, and others can find it by clicking on the hashtag or in searches.  If you want interaction though, don't sit around waiting: you get what you give.  Be the interaction you want to see.  Or just browse photos and get inspired.  There's no "one right way" to enjoy Google+; interaction isn't a prize to win or something to compete for.  I only mention it in the context of making new friends with similar interests.  Over the course of the past year, I've met a lot of fun and inspiring people, many of whom I get out and shoot with regularly, and others I hope to meet and shoot with some day.  Whatever you're here for, a photography theme can categorize images in ways which may help you find the types of images you'd most like to see or photographers you'd like to see more work from.I was having some trouble finding photography theme pages, so if I've missed some, please mention them in the comments and I'll include them in a future update.2012-07-08 16:02:281884116

Camels in Australia
#artisticgoogle #googlestreetview #westernaustralia

Theme: Northern Territory & Western Australia

For +Artistic Google curated by +Jan McCartney +Rob Robinson +Patrick Sheeran and +Jamal Masood (me).

It looks odd to see camel statues in a country which is normally not associated with camels, but there is history behind these sculptures found near a roundabout in the town of Norseman, W. Australia. The town was established during the great gold rush of late nineteenth century and prior to advent of the railways, the entire region was served by camel trains. These sculptures made of corrugated tin is a tribute to those hardy animals.

Are you ready for our next tour?

WA/NT - Western Australia and Northern Territory (March 23 - April 5, 2015)

We are delighted that our Aussie friend, +Chris Fithall , is manning the microphone at the front of the Magic Bus for this tour!

We've visited Queensland/Great Barrier Reef ( http://goo.gl/3qPBcf ),  New South Wales ( http://goo.gl/8xwJOZ ) and Tasmania ( http://goo.gl/Z4azhv ). Now we're visiting Western Australia and the Northern Territory. That's an area larger than India (says Chris who's been having some sporting banter about cricket with Jamal. Australia and India meet in the Cricket World Cup Semi Final on March 26, 2015).

Your Northern Territory tour should include a visit to its capital, Darwin, devastated by Cyclone Tracey on Christmas Day, 1974, but now rebuilt into a thriving, multicultural, modern city. Unfortunately, NT's best known feature, Uluru, is not visible in street view, but cast your disappointment aside and venture into NT towns such as Alice Springs and Katherine or travel through Kakadu National Park in search of inspiration.

The south west of Western Australia is its most densely populated area. Here, your destinations might include the state capital, Perth, along with historic Fremantle, the Margaret River region with its numerous wineries, the Southern Forests region with its magnificent (in appearance, in age and in name) karri and tingle trees or the beautiful coastal beaches. Venture north from Perth and drop into places like Geraldton or the surprising New Norcia.

Travel across the Nullarbor on the Eyre Highway (watch out for the Flying Doctor landing strips). See Kalgoorlie and the Goldfields region. Call into a mining town or visit popular coastal towns such as Broome or Exmouth. You might even be fortunate enough to find street view images in an amazing national park.

If you've never participated in Artistic Google and would like to, check out our "About" page to find out how. (Jan, Chris)___

The Dark Hedges of Northern Ireland
for +Artistic Google  theme 'March Break'
curated by +Patrick Sheeran +Jamal Masood +Rob Robinson & +Jan McCartney 
Special thanks to my friend +Judith Bluhm for her '10 most amazing trees' post :)
This enchantingly dramatic natural arched tunnel of beech trees was planted in the eighteenth century by the Stuart family, intended as an interesting entrance to their Georgian mansion, Gracehill House, which is now a golf club. The road is said to be haunted by a lone female ghost, The Grey Lady. It is one of the most photographed landscapes of Northern Ireland and has been used in the HBO series Game of Thrones, representing the King's Road.

"Petermann Island" by +Jan McCartney 

Remember scratchboards from kiddie art, where you scrawled crayons on paper, covered up the colours with black crayon, then scratched an image? (Jan)

"Petermann Island" for +Artistic Google's March Break theme, curated by +Rob Robinson +Jamal Masood +Patrick Sheeran and me.

Inspired by +Chryssa Kotsanidou who is checking out Svalbard, I headed the other way to Petermann Island, Antarctica. After the coldest February on record and meters of snow all up the East Coast, I am sure there are, nevertheless, photographers who want to pack up their gear and shoot (in the nicest way) penguins. With a wink at those photographers, I inserted a little HDR processing in this at the outset, but then I went painterly, thinking of those scratchboards we played with as kids. This rough treatment, thanks to Topaz Impression, reminds me just a bit of Anselm Kiefer's paintings. You may have to look at the original to make out the photographer with his big lens and the wee penguins.

Are you ready for our next tour? After months of snow and polar vortex in the Northern Hemisphere, our cabin fever is getting cabin fever, and we're more than ready for a

March Break ! (March 9 - 22, 2015)

It doesn't cost anything to travel on the Artistic Google Magic Bus and stay in imaginary places around the world. So choose your dream vacation and we're off! Beaches, seashore, Disneyland, sights and nightlife in the big city? We know at least one G+ photographer whose idea of time off is shooting the aurora in Iceland. It's up to you to find your happy place.

If you have never participated in Artistic Google and would like to, find out how on our "About" page.

All aboard! (Jan)___
