Monochrome World6,526January 2014 Contributors Circle What an amazing month. The quality of the work shared has been exceptional, at least in my view. You do quality photography and it shows. In terms of contribution numbers it was humongous, and in terms of contributors, we beat all records. Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful work. Re-share this circle if you can. It helps YOU and the theme to grow.Please remember to include in your posts, both the page and tag: +Monochrome World  #monochromeworld  This makes it easier to find your post. Also, all those included in this circle added the theme page to their circles. If you don't do that, I can't add you to the Contributors Circle.Note:1- please share your images posted to Public. If you post to communities, only community members can comment.2- So, my recommendation is this: post to Public first, then re-port to your favorite community.3- And, if you post to Extended Circles, your reach is limited and it makes difficult to re-share. So, it's been a rule for a long time: Extended Circles only-posts are not re-shared.Hope this helps clarify some issues. Thank you for your patience, and if I missed you in this circle, please let me know so I can pay more attention to your posts.Curator: +andi rivarola  #circleshare   #sharingcircles  +Circles Circles Circles +Share Your Circle +Circle Distribution +Valued Circle Shares 2014-02-04 03:06:3237613276159

Matt Shalvatis20,73750 (or so) Fantastic Photographers Friday#50FFFHere are 50 (or so) photographers who have posted something within the last week that has got my attention.  I gathered these from my stream, weekly photo themes, some photo communities, and random postings I stumbled upon.  Regular photography, HDR Photography, Paintography, and some other photos of interest.And that is my criteria for this circle.  They got my attention.  Well, OK, there is just a bit more.  • I checked their streams to make sure they’ve posted a few other photos in the last week.  But they don’t have to be all photos, all the time.• Made sure they are lesser known photographers.  The well known ones don’t need more promotion. • Nothing unusually strange or bizarre in their streams.  If you’d like to be considered for the next weekly circle, post a comment below and share this circle.  This guarantees that I will look at your stream.  It does not guarantee inclusion in the next circle.  Get my attention, and you're included! This circle will be all new every week.   All shares are welcome and encouraged!2013-01-18 19:25:3953333

Went on a photowalk yesterday...

... with +Shannon Adelson,  +Rachael Switalski,  +Katy Hinchliffe  , +Richard Ball,  +dPHender son   and +Allan Cabrera  to the Longwood Gardens in Delaware Pa (Doh!). (Thanks again for a good time guys! ) While it was really windy outside... inside the Conservatorium it was spectacular shooting. The sky was, for the most part, overcast ... providing us with Mama Nature's awesome softbox.

Among the many shots taken yesterday was this one ... which I was really hoping would turn out. ( everything  looks good on the camera screen... then ya get home and... well you know) I don't know about you, but the contrasting colors really caught my eye... : ))

A little studio work...

... from a few years back when I was experimenting with reflections and High-key backgrounds. This particular shot was inspirational rather than intentional.  Because, while I was shooting the setup... I knocked one of the prop shot-glasses off of the table... earning myself totally predictable results. With one very loud expletive and the muttering a few other choice words... I started the cleanup.

Soooo,  I'm picking the pieces off the floor and setting them back on the table when I notice that... hey... that looks kinda cool. I then started looking around the studio for a trash can and spotted this one flower whose day, sadly,  had come and was almost gone. Combining the two... I ended up with this shot, titled "Broken Dreams".

For weeks now...

... my buddy +Alan Shapiro has been posting some crazy cool chicken shots. So cool in fact that it prompted a retaliatory  post by +Robin Griggs Wood pointing out his... shall we say... "pigeon neglect".  I thought the whole thing would die down... but no... now he's starting to post crazy cool turkey shots... causing one to ask... is there no end to the breadth and depth of this man's creative poultry posting? And  just exactly how does one end up with so many chicken pics anyway? And do you need a special lens and/or a pair of shoes you don't care about? I ponder these questions and many more as I strive to be able to shoot like him when I grow up get older.... just sayin'

This is my one and only poultry shot... He's all dressed up and lookin' fer chicks... : ))

What's this got to do with steampunk?...

... beats me, but this guy was on the street passin' out flyers for the Steampunk festival in New Hope, Pa a couple of Saturdays back. Near as anyone on the +Drink and Click™ Philadelphia photowalk could figure out, his "outfit" had more to do with the Rocky Horror Picture Show that was playing at the festival, rather than with the steampunk extravaganza. Whatever the reason... he did make a pretty cool portrait... : ))

Meanwhile...

... back at the +Drink and Click™ Philadelphia photowalk last Saturday in New Hope, Pa... not everything was about steampunk. After we left the festival ( on the way to a restaurant to chimp and visit) I spotted this rather extensive display in the side yard of a local business. I'm pretty sure the owner had it there just for the love  of the art... besides, what else are ya gonna do with all those extra wigs and mannequins anyway?

After a stunning...

... and triumphant career in the fashion industry  last tuesday +Mike Spinak has returned to his roots a nature photographer.  Having risen from entry to the very pinnacle of his craft in a single day... some might think giving up a life of a genius fashionista and documenter of the glamorous was just plain crazy. But as Mike explained, in a quote that I just made up, "I soon realized just how limited creativity was in the fashion industry. So called "famous" designers only create a dozen or so outfits for a yearly show... whereas Mama Nature runs an ongoing global fashion extravaganza that produces billions of changes in looks, texture, and colors, at a minimum of 4 times in the same period. How can mere "man made fibers" compare with that? Well... it can't. Simply put, anyone interested in true fashion should be photographing splendorof... more »

So welcome back to #wildlifewednesday  Mike... you were sorely missed... : ))

(This little guy's image  was captured a fews years back in Livingston, Tx. Does he really has his nice clothes on... or what?)

"The most difficult part...*

... of shooting at the Steampunk Festival with the +Drink and Click™ Philadelphia crowd this weekend was the really crappy lighting at the venue. It was this atrocious mix of standard in-ceiling 4 tube fluorescents and a ton of incandescent chandeliers... no, really. I think the idea was to be able to use one or the other, depending on what the event was... but somebody decided that having both on would be ever so cool. It was like they saying... hey, all you photographer people... I got your white balance right here, bitches! So juggling two different colors of light (three for those folks using a flash) resulted in some, to say the least, challenges with respect to white balance and skin tones.

I fought with this image a lot ( I mean... a lot, a lot) over skin tone. I really liked the POV, the eyes (love, love, love me some steampunk contact lenses...) and cheekbones. But... each half or her face was bathed in a different color of light so when you got one side right the other was ever so wrong.... and vice versa. So... ya twiddle some more... and some more... and... well, you get it.

You are looking at the point where I cried uncle with this portrait of Lady Eleeza... : ))

Another portrait from...

... the +Drink and Click™ Philadelphia visit to the Steampunk Festival in New Hope, Pa on Saturday afternoon. Donna (owner of +Beaded Chic LLC ) graciously struck a pose for me to shoot. Background distractions were a flat drag to get rid of... but IMHO... this shot came out  pretty bangin'.... : ))

... spend a couple of posts on some portraits that I managed to do yesterday during the +Drink and Click™ Philadelphia photowalk to a Steampunk festival. The folks that were "in character" were very extremely gracious about having a camera stuck in their face...  : ))

Spent an excellent afternoon....

... yesterday with the folks from +Drink and Click™ Philadelphia. We all met up at a Steampunk festival being held in New Hope, Pa and proceeded to shoot the afternoon away. It was good for me because, what with one thing or another, I really hadn't got out to shoot much at all this year. (yeah, I know... I know, but wadda ya gonna do?). 

All in all I had an really good time,  renewing some friendships and making a couple of new ones .Ran into +Shannon Adelson  +rich e. miller, his brother +reggie miller and +Stacey Heritage   whom I hadn't seen since last summer. Got to spend some time meeting and getting to know  +dPHender son, +Jeremy Albright,  +Richard Beckwith and +Rachael Switalski   ... which was very cool.

One of my all time favorite...

... street portraits. Seriously, I love this shot... it's as close as I've ever come to matching the wonderful street portraits my friend  +Alan Shapiro effortlessly cranks out. Captured on the last day of the +Google+ Photographer's Conference  in the little park right outside the conference center. I spotted this guy just chillin', asked if he... ya know... minded and... et voilà! The gents name is rAmu Aki and he is a local performance artist in the Bay area. I think that I posted a Snapseed version back when but had neglected to ever put out the finished version.

Sticking with San Francisco...

... this image was captured during the +A Slice of Time - SF Bay Photowalk 2013 last year. I've tried it in B/W and several other processing methods but for some reason  I just keep coming back to the original color version.

And the story goes likes this...

After the official +A Slice of Time - SF Bay Photowalk 2013 was over I got to spend a seriously memorable day shooting with +Nathan Wirth, +John Kosmopoulos, +Athena Carey and +Grant Murray. As we were piling our stuff into Nathan's car at the end of one of our stops (the beach @ Pacifica) I shot this lone tree. Athena and I both noted it, all alone on the ridge line, but she had already packed away her gear so she passed on the shot. After I fiddled with it (It was a broad daylight shot after all) I titled it "Athena's Tree" and posted it. 

Fast forward many months....

My buddy +Lee Daniels and I were on one of our marathon (like 5 hour! ) phone calls when the topic turned to astrophotography. Now I like to look at it and have seen some spectacular stuff posted on G+... but I'm never gonna do it. (it has todo ... more »

My buddy +Lee Daniels and I were on one of our marathon (like 5 hour! ) phone calls when the topic turned to astrophotography. Now I like to look at it and have seen some spectacular stuff posted on G+... but I'm never gonna do it. (it has to do with being up in the middle of Alan's sleepy time and standing around in the dark and sometimes being cold and oh yea... did I mention being up during "Sleepy Time") Anyway I mentioned that I had taken a swipe the the Super Moon and that it was nothing..well..super... but I was hanging on to it maybe to use someday in a composite. One thing led to another and I pulled out "Athena's Tree" and we started playing.

We tried it above the clouds ( ala Ansel Adams "Moonrise" ) we tried it up in the left corner, right corner, top, bottom... you name it, we had the moon there at some point. After a lot of time (and laughs) had passed we got the moon where we Lee thought it should be. (seriously.. it was all like... move it 2px to the left... no, no it needs the opacity turned down 3%... darken the foreground... dim the clouds... no wait... brighten the clouds... etc... etc...etc)  Everything said and done, it was a most excellent use of a few hours, filled with laughter, snarky comments... and... well... more laughter.

So with fond memories piled on top of fond memories (how often do ya get a twofer like that?) I give you...  "Moonrise on Athena's Tree".

Must be nostalgia week... 

... or at least it is for me. As I've mentioned in previous posts I've had occasion to step back thru some older folders on my system. During my rummaging I've came across a cluster of images captured in San Francisco while attending either the +Google+ Photographer's Conference  in 2012 or the +A Slice of Time - SF Bay Photowalk 2013. 

So this week I'm gonna post some of the images that I've culled from the herd.... : ))

Sometimes it takes a while...

... before you are done with an image, or for that matter, before the image is done with you. A case in point... this was shot last year during the +A Slice of Time - SF Bay Photowalk 2013 and the post was finished... well... er... yesterday.

Why did it take over a year to finish up with it? Why did I pass up its half finished carcass in LR many, many times during that span... without stopping? What caused me to, in the course of doing something else entirely, stop and spend the hours it took for the image to be what it wanted to be? What made yesterday such a pivotal point in this images life?

Seriously, if I knew the answers to these questions.... I would be soooo dangerous.  : ))

+Nathan Wirth... is it to late to enter the contest?

Imagine that....

I just got off a cross country road trip and was a little bummed that while I was gone the deadline for submission to the +Plus One Collection had passed me by. But wait ... there is an email from +Ivan Makarov in my inbox and it says that the deadline was extended until midnight tonight (PST)! yowzah!

So I got to submit this shot of "New York by Gerhy" that I captured last summer after all. Not really last minute... but certainly, last hours!

Thanks again to Ivan and the PlusOne team for keeping this wonderful project going for another year!

Whazzzup?

I was going thru my files as part of a complete redo of my LR structure/filing and came across this little guy. Hadn't seen him in... like forever and it still made me smile... : ))

The little guy was pretty smart. He (or could be she... just sayin) would wait on a bamboo tree (just out of the frame on camera left) for this flower to get nicely populated with ants. Then it was just a quick hop over to... well.... get your lunch on! Back and forth... back and forth (stupid ants...) I just had to be patient and wait until the right pose was struck....

Shot a few years back on the island of Tortola in the British Virgin Islands.

for +Mike Spinak and +Morkel Erasmus  over at #wildlifewednesday ... 'cause my buddy +Lee Daniels made me promise to keep you boys company... : ))

Goin' down to tinytown...

Captured as the second of my "Frame" submissions for last months +Get Critiqued! with +Christina Lawrie and now repurposed for  #macromonday   with +Sandra Parlow and +Jeff Moreau. 

For those of you with a "geek streak" this is the core of and old EPROM (Erasable Programable Read Only Memory)  chip I found on the motherboard of a TeleVideo 925  terminal (circa 1981). After the  nonvolatile memory had been programed... it could be erased with a strong UV light and reused ( no, really! ).This necessitated that the chip  have a little quartz window over the core for the UV light to get thru. 

Sooooo... I shot thru that little window with a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens using strong daylight with an assist from an 50 LED work lamp. The gold background is the actual glue that attached the  core to the chipcasing.

I consistently find ....

... that ( for me)  anything glass is the most difficult to light. Throw in some curves and... Bladow .... the difficulty factor goes up to a whole 'nuther level. 

While trying to figure out how to get it done... I ran across a pretty good text dedicated to the subject. It has the descriptive ( and unwieldy ) tile of "Lighting and Photographing Transparent and Translucent Surfaces" by Dr. Glenn Rand ( on Amazon... http://goo.gl/4kt1mz ). For around $15.37 (kindle) you too can start figuring out why it's been kicking your ass... : ))

This is what happens....

... when you forget that the "puff, puff, pass" rule is there for a reason... : ))

Created in an effort to fulfill the "Framed" theme for this months +Get Critiqued! with +Christina Lawrie. It started out life as a fairly sedate reflection picture, using the infinity pool at the house we rented in Costa Rica and the golf course behind it. How it got to this.... well sometime strange things happen when I start pouring my patented secret sauce all over an image... : )) 

This is for #treetuesday    ( +Tree Tuesday ) co-curated by +Ralph Mendoza and a whole list of folks... But I singled him out 'cause I know he totally needed for there to be an #801

Back when it was warm....

... I was setting out on the back porch when out of the brush (you know, the stuff I never get around to cutting.... hmmm... does that make me ecologically minded or just plain lazy?) stepped these bad boys. Now deer in the back are quite common but mostly it's Doe's and Fawn's. Occasionally, I get to see a Buck... but it's rare. So to see two and have my camera sitting beside me... very cool.

Starting the New Year...

... We got back late last night from watching the whole "Polar Vortex" thingy while in Costa Rica. Our family vacation had been planned for more than 6 months and the dates that were decided on back when... well... as it turned out... was something a little like winning the lottery. Got to read about the whole thing while setting by the pool, or walking on the beach or... or ... or .... all while basking in constant 90 degree temperatures.... surrounded by all of our kids... the grandkid... and a couple of good friends. But now its over and reality starts once again seeping in..... sigh

Got a bunch of changesI want to  to make and talk about in the new year... but I thought I start off with a "re-imagined" shot from back in 2011 and well.... a question.

Got a bunch of changesI want to  to make and talk about in the new year... but I thought I start off with a "re-imagined" shot from back in 2011 and well.... a question. 

As I stated above, the original image was shot in July of 2011 and was processed in color. The re-imagined image was processed this morning and of course is in BW. Soooo, the question is... how would you "date" the shot for title purposes? (of course that's presupposing you use the year in your titles) Would you use the 2011original image date or a 2014 date... 'cause that was when this image was created? I admit that (on this image) I split the difference and went with a (tongue-in-cheek) "V2" in the title but going forward... I don't know.  Is the "creation date" when ya shot it... or when ya finished it? Should a "derivative" version get a different date in the title? Hmmm......

Any thoughts or comments ( if you've ever thought about it...) on how you "date" your work might just make a interesting discussion.... just sayin'

Baby, its cold outside...

This is a shot taken on the back part of our property a few years back. Unfortunately a storm came thru last night and dropped 7 inches of snow on us... so it looks much the same now. The outside temp is around -11C and while that might seem balmy to some of our friends in the great white north (that would be you +Sandra Parlow )... its a little over the edge for me. 

The good news is.... some time back we rented a house and made arraignments for all of our kids plus a few friends to meet up with us in Costa Rica for a week. The really good news is.... wait for it.... we leave tomorrow! I just love it when a plan comes together... : ))

Take care... stay warm... and I'll be back next week.... oh, and could you pass me that drink with the little umbrella in it....___

An extremely small slice..

... of the massive Inca agricultural works to be found in Peru at the Parque Arqueológico de Tipon. (Archeological Park of Tipon). Irrigated by an underground spring that has flowed for many centuries, this 600 acre archeological wonder consists of many (many, many) terraces each one of which has a razor straight stone irrigation channel down each side, 

When you see the massive amount of excavation and stonework that was done by the Inca builders... and then think about the technology available to them.... man, it makes you feel like a total slacker...  : ))

As I've noted in previous posts... for one reason or another I don't seem to end up with many "water" shots. When I do... I send them over to  my friend +Mark Esguerra who co-curates #thirstythursdaypics  with +Giuseppe Basile.

It takes a real man...

... to rock a set of "Santa Jammies" when you are in jail... #justsayin   

I know it's kind of a  defunct theme.... but this should be put in for #manlymonday so that +Alan Shapiro and +Dave Daniels  could look at them blue eyes....

My grandson Torin... who just turned 1 this month... oh baby, does time ever fly.

The final version...

... of a Snapseed shot I posted from my iPad while in Peru. The lady was a hoot... she would be asleep and if anyone walked by and stopped to look at her papers... bing... totally awake. So I'm guessin' that the force was strong with her... : ))

As I mentioned in my first post... a lot of patience was required because, to make the shot,  I needed her to be dozin'... no one walking by... and no cars coming thru the frame. Since it was a busy road with lots of cars ( and people ) I leaned on a building across the street for almost a half hour waiting for the moment. Persistence sometimes pay offs... just sayin'

... #cuscostreetpics  for the day (or at least this morning!).  This beautiful little guy graciously consented to hold still long enough for me to get his street portrait. Okay... it cost me that lollipop... but that's just the cost of doing business... : ))

Back on the streets....

... of Cusco, Peru. I don't know what this young women does with her life... but it obviously requires the use of  two cellphones.  : )) #cuscostreetpics

*Didn't share this as public when I first posted.... Doh! *

A little change-up....

... from all of the #cuscostreetpics  that I have been posting for the last week. This one is for #colorsonfriday  ( +ColorsOnFriday ) curated by +Britta Rogge  and +Karsten Meyer and especially for #10000photographers ( +10000 PHOTOGRAPHERS ) curated  by +Robert SKREINER ( who works hard at curating this theme and so many others )

Located in the historic district of Cusco, Peru the Royal Inca II Hotel boasts a wonderful lobby with this 3 story mural. As the story was told to me... the people pictured in the tile mural (middle lower bottom) are the owner and the staff that was there when the hotel was opened. 

Shot from the balcony on the 3rd floor.. and as a side note: anyone who knows me knows how friggin' hard it was for me to not go down there and straighten out that damn couch.... : ))___*Didn't share this as public when I first posted.... Doh! *

I had to dig deep for it...

This scene is the result of a seriously deep crop and alot of tweaking on a full frame image.  I saw the scene... but it was set back and sandwiched in between a drugstore with a bunch of foot traffic and a pesky (huge) pillar that would have added nothing to the shot.  It was a dilemma, should I move in so that the pillar wouldn't obstruct? well... no... because, while that would have given me way more of the scene I wanted in the frame... it would have put me right up in her face . I stood to loose the tranquil simplicity that of her lack of awareness of me and my camera allowed . So in the end I shot it at 17mm and cropped rotated, tickled and tweaked my way into the shot that I had seen in my head... whew!

I'm a "mid-tone" kinda guy...

... but I rarely produce a shot that contains so much of it. Usually, this much "mid" looks too flat for me.... but in this shot it seems to work out.  : ))

Recently shot on the streets of Cusco, Peru.
