Offbeat Images583THIS CONTEST ENDED ON 8/15/14 Introducing the Offbeat Images "Blue Ribbon" Gallery Contest – the bi-weekly, Google+ digital photography and art competition dedicated to honoring images (and the digital artists) that celebrate the magic and wonder found in ordinary places, spaces and things.   You are cordially invited to show off YOUR best “offbeat” image (and digital art skills)  in our inaugural contest. [You can ONLY SUBMIT ONE IMAGE.]  What is considered an "offbeat" image?  It's not a traditional landscape, portrait, or macro digital photography image. (In other words, you probably won't find one on a travel poster, art gallery wall or flower theme page.)  An "offbeat" image is an original, unconventional, high-quality (i.e., not raw, but very well composed and thoughtfully processed) piece of digital photography or art that captures the glory of often overlooked items and areas in our world. For example:  Peeling old paint, Candid or unconventional portraits, Striking or abstract shadows and/or reflections in buildings or things, Interesting or unique antiques, Narrow alleyways, Far off Main Street urban scenes, Fallow farms or old tractors, Stormy skyscapes or unusual clouds, Dried river beds, Broken windows, Abandoned factories, Beaches in winter, Overgrown paths or trails, Fields of wildflowers, Seldom used roadways, Weedy gardens, Decayed, worn or rusty objects ... The examples above are merely a guide to what some might consider ordinary things and spaces. The everyday world has lots of ordinary things and spaces that--with an artist's touch, could be captured and crafted to look or feel extraordinary. That said, PLEASE DON'T SUBMIT the following: -  Unprocessed or raw photos (no "Instagram" or snapshots) -  Images lacking thoughtful composition, lighting, focal point, color or tone balance, perspective, or cropping. ("Offbeat" by our standard doesn't mean silly, shocking, or mocking in nature. This is a serious contest for serious artists looking to express their artistic vision.) -  Landscapes/skyscapes/seascapes  (Unless you have used additional processing, such as HDR, selective focus, textures, etc.) -  Macro shots of flowers or bugs (Unless you have used additional processing, such as HDR, selective focus, textures, etc.) So ... set your artistic self free: Create your "offbeat" images with THINGS AND SPACES FOUND IN YOUR EVERYDAY WORLD that capture your eye, meet our definition and deserve our attention.  Thanks again for your participation. _______________________ Here’s how to participate: 1) Circle our Offbeat Images "Blue Ribbon" Gallery theme page and each of our owners and curators. 2) Accept this contest event invitation and submit ONE original (i.e., created and owned by you) image that you have either previously shared publicly on Google+ or one that you have created recently and would like to share--first, with us in our contest. (Be sure to share only a single image--not an album, and enable commeOffbeat Images "Blue Ribbon" Gallery Contest - ENDED ON 8/152014-08-01 21:00:0010

Photo Tour Global Directory™4,203*Meet +Mike Berenson  of http:www//ColoradoCaptures.com and some of his past students as they share what it is like to go on a nightscape workshop adventure with him.*   Mike conducts workshops, tours and has in class training to help photographers advance to the next level in their photography.   You will meet +Kristal Kraft  a Real Estate professional and talented photographer from the Denver Metro area and +Teri Virbickis  and impactologist who specializes in helping people get started in Stock Photography.   Both ladies have taken classes from Mike and have taken their photography to a much higher level by applying some of the techniques he teaches.   The panel will be discussing two Nightscape photography trips coming up. *1.  Learn The Secrets Behind Capturing Incredible Nightscape Images - Multiple Nights In Arches National Park* August 31, 2013 7:00 pm to September 3, 2013 3:00 am  Join Mike Berenson on a multiple night, night photography training event featuring a combination of both in-field instruction and classroom training - all focusing on the wonders and challenges of night photography in Arches National Park near Moab, Utah.  This workshop training event is scheduled specifically to take advantage of dark skies with little to no moonlight - allowing for the best opportunity to capture great nightscape images. Night Photography Training Club Sandwich No we're not talking about lunch, but the 2 classroom sessions sandwiched in between 3 nights of in-field photography workshops sure sounded like a Club Sandwich.  It's not a new approach, but it is an effective way to learn the process from start to finish - learning where and when to go, how to capture great images, and how to bring them to life in post-processing.  Some Of The Locations to shoot: •Double Arch •Turret Arch •Balanced Rock •Delicate Arch •Park Avenue For more details and to sign-up http://www.coloradocaptures.com/arches-national-park-multiple-night-night-photography-training-club-sandwich. *Come post your photos of Moab and join the buzz in this event for the 3 night adventure*  http://goo.gl/XkHDHe   *2.  Spend the night shooting in Rocky Mountain National Park*  September 7, 2013 7:00 pm to 5:00 am  Join Mike Berenson on an overnight photography workshop with demonstrations and hands-on training that focuses on the wonders and challenges of night photography in Rocky Mountain National Park near Estes Park, Colorado.

Trever McGhee83,468Please accept my apologies if your one of the few that got hit by a bug in their system! This is my first event and for some reason Google notified some people 20 times and for some their system was planning on doing that within their calendars for the next 5 years...every single day...20 times a day...how it did or why it would set peoples calendars up to be notified 20 times a day...I don't know. Hopefully they've got it corrected, if not please let me know. I know I wanted to help peoples wishes come true but not in that way, The goal of this event my Birthday is give you as many of my Birthday Wishes as you require...why because you deserve it. My wish is here is to connect you to the thoughts/ the energy of thousands of people around the world all making a Birthday Wish for themselves from the heart... to you. I like to Imagine the energy from all those making a wish and the energy coming from the ones that come true(the smiles..the laughter..the tears...the overflowing of pure joy) being connected to you to power your own wish to come true. Thanks to some theories about Quantum Physics there's no space between you or me or them...topped with the fact they tell us energy is never destroyed, it's gotta go somewhere as each new person joins in, so why not to you to empower your wish to come true sooner rather than later. Imagine being connected to thousands....millions of others all making wishes...all hoping that your wish comes true for it will help empower their wish. They've documented several cases of where positive thoughts have made a difference, so why not around someones birthday who can then share it with everyone whose connected to that person...so me for this event. It's never been done before, so why not now....be part of it. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain as we go day by day, year by year building this community of wish granters. Now think of an image that represents your wish and then take2seconds to think of that image at least once a day until it comes true. Have fun with it, there's no right or wrong way when you come from the heart. Please let us know as each wish comes true...yes each wish...there's no law that says you're only granted one wish...you deserve everyone of them when they come from the heart..when that wish fills you with the passion for life... *****UPDATE at first I was focused on getting as many people as possible for this so that everyone had more energy but now after reading your comments..hearing your passion for life...the numbers have gone completely out the window for each one of you have brought your own unique energy to the equation that's priceless....THANK YOU In my world Birthday wishes can be made everyday of the year because it's a celebration everyday that your here to share this with. So today I Celebrate being 44 and 1 day old.Update to fix Google Bug for "It's My Birthday and my wish is for your wishes to come true!!"2012-08-17 12:00:00203

Gailen Mapes81,766Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera C - 11 of 27Note: 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 March 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting February 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   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-03-11 10:42:2888001

FULL OF NICE AND ACTIVE FRIENDS ;) ==NOW I'M ALSO ADDING PEOPLE TO MY PHOTOGRAPHERS LIST ON FACEBOOK!! https://www.facebook.com/lists/852972128064411Please send me a FB friendship request Indicating your photography interests if you want to be added. ;-)https://www.facebook.com/HaizbeltzI'd like to enhance the quality of this circle by including only profiles with a person behind. If you choose to add the circle (which is up to you as always), I want it to be a nice experience, I don't want to flood your stream with ads or spam, that is why I weekly review the circle. Should you find any Copyright Infringer at any time, please, provide proper evidence and let me know ASAP in order to remove and ban the user. We support interaction and friendship not robbery! THANK YOU GUYS for all your plusses & shares, and for being there day by day, it is highly appreciated!Would you like to be in the next one and be part of the FUN? Just follow these simple steps: 1.- Plus the post.2.- Share the post publicly in your own stream.3.- Please leave a comment so I am fully aware of your participation.4.- Please follow me.PLEASE READ:1.- I am promoting and sharing this circle in my stream so, please do the same from your side. Do not share it in your "Circle Sharing" page, use your stream.2.- In order to keep "The Gathering Circle" as "clean" as possible from spammers, aggressive business pages or profiles who don't share anything else but spam, ads or just circles please be aware that I will directly remove and block anybody asking for inclusion and meeting any of these cases:A) Your profile or page mainly has circles. I'd like to include in my circles people who, at least have something to say or post, I can't understand why a profile or page just post circles and nothing else, not a single picture, opinion or whatever, please say something, I'd like to see there's a person behind. 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 promoting artists 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.Thank you very much indeed for your friendship and cooperation. One Circle for all and 2015-02-23 17:33:10499123102157

Diana - Évora, #Portugal
(Click on the photo to view it large)

Photo description and details:
One of the great symbolic monuments of Évora - the roman temple of Diana, here under the afternoon Sun.

"The temple is believed to have been constructed around the first century A.D., in homage to Augustus who was venerated as a god during and after his rule.The temple was built in the main public square (forum) of Évora, then called Liberatias Iulia. During the 2nd and 3rd centuries, from the traditionally accepted chronology, the temple was part of a radical redefinition of the urban city, when the religious veneration and administrative polity was oriented around the central space: the structure was modified around this time."

2,000 Trees HD - Malhão, #Portugal 

In November 2014 a group of volunteers gathered on the hills around the Stupa of Malhão in the Algarve, South of Portugal. They offered 2.000 seeds and their personal effort to plant those many Quercus Sobur trees, on behalf of #MotherEarth (http://www.motherearth.international). It was their way to help fighting #ClimateChange and #GlobalWarming…

I put this film together based on some footage I took at the location early that year, and mainly from the photos my friends Adalberto Silva and Fernando Santos took during this auspicious plantation.

”We don’t set out to save the world; we set out to wonder how other people are doing and to reflect on how our actions affect other people’s hearts.”
Pema Chödron

Photo description and details:
Being a very small fortification, I can only imagine the despair of being stuck inside this castle, and praying for dear life, while watching a rabble of enemies wanting to force the entry and conquer the facility. I can only imagine…
I’m glad I’m just a tourist…

The Pateo - Sortelha, #Portugal
(Click on the photo to view it large)

”A hundred times every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life depend on the labours of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving.”
Albert Einstein

Photo description and details:
Near the Porta Nova (New Gate) in Sortelha (we can see its arch above the trees in the center of the photo) is this very cozy pateo. On the left side we can see the fortified wall that surrounds this medieval village.

The Power of Waves - Senhora da Guia, #Portugal
(Click on the photo to view it large)

”The mind is always active, always generating thoughts, just as the ocean constantly generates waves. We can’t stop our thoughts any more than we can stop waves in the ocean. Resting the mind in its natural state is very different from trying to stop thoughts altogether.”
Mingyur Rinpoche

Photo description and details:
Taken a year ago. It’s the third photo I publish from this sequence of waves hitting the rocks that day at Senhora da Guia. The other two you can find at my landscape photos album here at Goole +:

I know that probably this is a little lame post. 
Nevertheless, it's been two years now that I revived my old passion about Photography and started this wonderful journey here at Google+.
I had to learn digital photography from scratch. But the basic skills from many years ago, when I was shooting with film, were still here.

In the meantime, my friends (that I met here at G+)  +Miguel Almeida and +Fabs Fabian invited me to exhibit my photos along with their wonderful work.
+Jack Stepanyan and +Rinus Bakker invited me to be a part of the wonderful adventure that is +BestTopPhotographer.com 

+Britta Rogge and her +ShowYourBestWork are also a great support to my work. 

+Sergio Miranda,  +Photo Mania Portugal and also +Photo Mania Global are a constant presence in promoting my photos

...and many, many others. The list is too long.

Last but not the least, Google+ has granted me the honour of selecting many of my photos to be promoted at "What's hot and recommend" 
Here are a few I managed to catch and screen shoot.

Thank you all my friends and followers for the great support you have given me. Without it, none of this could be possible. 

I wish you all the happiness this world can give...___
