Gailen Mapes65,727Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  L - 7 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 +2014-07-07 10:49:5057316CC G+

Stephan Spelde8,664My Inspirational CircleEver since I joined Google plus in the end of the year 2011 I have been looking for those special ones. Those people that inspired me...touched my soul with their work or made me laugh my pants off.It took me over 2 years to fill this circle up to 500 inspirators, but today... I finally added my last person. :)I will seek more of these in the future, don't worry, and this means I will have to share multiple circles from now on, but for now...these are the 500 most inspirational people on Google Plus for me.A great big Thank You to everybody in this circle for enriching my Google Plus experience and inspire and motivate me in becoming a better photographer.artist. #circleshare   #circlesharing   #circles  2014-01-09 22:05:0550031930CC G+

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 18:49:364857231117CC G+

I would to thank each for their help.I have chosen the name of the circle carefully to try to accurately represent the contents of what will be in the two circles. The script / finding namesThe script was provided by CircleCount and looks through the tagline of every profile on CircleCount to find the word "photo" or "foto".  If a photographer doesn't have a CircleCount profile they won't be found.  If one of these two words isn't in their tagline, they won't be found.  A few people I know have fallen into this flaw in my thinking.  To fix this, CircleCount has asked me to provide a "whitelist" of names that the script misses.  The white-list list adds another 30 or so names to the result.   Keyword world a personal viewpointIf you don't use the word photographer to describe yourself how do you expect people to find you in a search. "Searcher of cute pixels", "Creative spirit that makes art out of light"; these might be poetic, they might touch your soul but the world looks for content based on keyword searches.  SEO is going to do the same. Consider carefully the words sou use to describe yourself if you want people to find you using search technology. How was the list processedThe list was sorted by the level of activity.  People that hadn't posted in the last month (approximately April 5 to May 5th) were removed from the list.  This included people that hadn't posted or people that had posted only once in the past 4 weeks.  Again, this has some flaws but I'm mostly happy with the results.  People who are posting only in private communities o2013-05-18 13:17:2050114186132CC G+

Happy Earth Day !

This classic image of Southern California poppies mixed with lupine was photographed at this time of the year on 5x7 film with a wide-angle lens using tilt to extend depth of field.

The Marble Gorge, named by Major John Wesley Powell, is dominated by tall, vertical, brightly colored, Redwall limestone cliffs that make it the most spectacular section along the Colorado River - and the most difficult to access from the Rim.

Today we celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Yosemite Grant, the bill signed by Abraham Lincoln - in the midst of the Civil War, that set aside in perpetuity the world's first parkland for public use. As explained in  "Seed of the Future" http://amzn.to/1fGLbwt, the national park idea was born and evolved in Yosemite. Yellowstone became the world's first national park only because at that time Wyoming was a territory, whereas California was already a state.

Mission San Jose, San Antonio. I framed composition with arch to reduce extent of sky, positioned camera so that the dark stone in foreground did not overlap anything, and that the wooden cross would stand against the stone wall, then used controls on TS lens to make sure verticals remained verticals and that back wall was not oblique, stopped down to f/16 for depth of field.

I've been quietly using a Phantom 2 quadcopter as another tool to complement my photography when warranted. On that day, overcast skies weren't great for photographing Mission Concepcion in San Antonio TX (too much light sky), so I tried this view from above.

During my quick tour of the "Texas Triangle" delimited by Houston, Dallas/Fort Worth, and San Antonio, I was struck by the individual character of the cities. To my surprise, San Antonio was a major major tourist attraction. The main focus is the River Walk, where people come to party in the innumerable restaurants and bars.

One million bats nest under one of the bridges leading to downtown Austin, TX. It is an amazing sight to see them fly out at dusk, but a challenge to photograph. Using the 24 TSE lens (to keep architecture straight), the maximum aperture was f/3.5. ISO 3200 resulted in a the shutter speed of 1/13s - way too slow to render the bats as anything but streaks.

Fort Worth has embraced its cowboy and Western heritage. I had fun at the rodeo. Interesting discovery, or simply finding a stereotype of Texas that I already had in mind ?

One of my cityscapes with the most significance, this is the Dallas skyline from Dealey Plaza,  the site of JFK's assassination. On a large version of the image, one can see the "X" which marks the spot on the left road. Although it rained all day, for a short 10 minutes at dusk the sky was blue - works all the time.

The Navajo tribe (whose tribal lands border the East Rim of the Grand Canyon) are considering massive development, including a tram down to the Little Colorado Confluence http://bit.ly/TQAgqy Obviously bad for the Grand Canyon, but the tribe does need economic development. What is the best solution ?

Today we celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Yosemite Grant, the bill signed by Abraham Lincoln - in the midst of the Civil War, that set aside in perpetuity the world's first parkland for public use. As explained in  "Seed of the Future" http://amzn.to/1fGLbwt, the national park idea was born and evolved in Yosemite. Yellowstone became the world's first national park only because at that time Wyoming was a territory, whereas California was already a state.

Back from a quick trip to Yosemite. The photo was made two years ago at the exact same time of the year. It was so wet I had to use a spinning rain deflector. This year Bridalveil Fall is just a tiny trickle. What a difference!

After the guard chased me from the main grounds of the Gerald D. Hines Waterwall in Houston (see yesterday's post), I wandered in the back, where I found this shot. The even illumination on water is the result of blending two exposures, as the floodlights situated at the bottom made the base much brighter than the top.

Last April, I travelled to Houston to attend Fotofest. Since rain was forecast, instead of socializing between review sessions, I went out and made photographs. This was shot from a DJI Phantom 2 quadcopter with a Ricoh GR - which provides image quality comparable to my Canon DSLR.

Getting close and personal with the Grand Canyon means discovering small details such as this waterfall, rather than just looking at spectacular vistas. Slower shutter speed made possible by using a tripod gave shape to the water spouts.

Often the best time to photograph a large water surface is when it is in the shade just before the sun arrives or just after it left. Colorado River, Grand Canyon National Park.

Maybe the most beautiful moment on the river during Grand Canyon rafting trip. The tall, vertical, brightly colored, north-south oriented walls of Marble were more photogenic than Granite Gorge which began after the Little Colorado confluence.

The Marble Gorge, named by Major John Wesley Powell, is dominated by tall, vertical, brightly colored, Redwall limestone cliffs that make it the most spectacular section along the Colorado River - and the most difficult to access from the Rim.

In the course of its 277 miles, the Colorado River drops 2000 feet. Rather than being gradual, the river profile is like a staircase. Most of the drops occur at about 160 rapids. Unkar Rapids, considered moderate in difficulty, are remarkable for the setting, on a wide bend surrounded by undulating badlands in the most open part of the Grand Canyon.

Nankoweap Granaries, built in a striking Rewall limestone alcove, were used by the ancient Ancestral Puebloan people to store their seed stock. The trail from the North Rim is considered the most difficult of the named trails in Grand Canyon, however from the Colorado River it is a 1 hour RT hike, although steep and exposed.

One of the pleasures of a river rafting trip down the Grand Canyon is the possibility to visit intimate side canyons. The first hike on our trip was at North Canyon (river mile 20). After hiking 45 minutes, we reached this reflection pool at the base of a sculpted spillway.

I often find myself more inclined to talk - and write - about my travels, the light and land than details of the craft. So I was pleased to read that when asked what he thought when he took a photograph, Brett Weston would simply point out to the print and say: "that thing right there !".

The Grand Canyon does need special atmospheric conditions to do justice to its depth. In my previous half-dozen visits to the South Rim, I never got any clouds. So despite disappointment with snow, the quick visit was still rewarding.

On April 26, I checked my luggage for a fly to Flagstaff (two days ahead of the ill-fated Grand Canyon rafting photo tour). The flight from Phoenix to Flagstaff was cancelled because of a snowstorm in Flagstaff. I got there by bus. Since there was a foot of snow on the ground, I changed my plans and headed for the Grand Canyon South Rim, hoping to photograph it with a blanked of snow. To my disappointment, the snow did not stick to the ground at the Rim.

While the Golden Rock in Myanmar is a wondrous sight at any time of the day – there is nothing like it anywhere else – it is most beautiful at dawn and dusk, when it glows magically.

More than half of all Buddhist monks in Myammar reside in the Mandalay area. We had several opportunities to witness monks going for their round of alms. Contrarily to widespread thinking, this is not begging, but an opportunity provided to the devotees to earn merit by giving. To that effect, the monks walk a long way from their monasteries, often barefoot.
