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 September 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting August 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."I am hard up against the 5000 limit.

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 +2014-09-17 10:28:58101003

Peter From66,753The AMATEUR PHOTOGRAPHER'S CIRCLE  –– Circle Post –– Part ONEFinally the time has come to share the first part of the APC. "The first part..?", you might ask. Yes, Part ONE since the announcement posts received some 800 comments and I manually check every person before I add him/her to the circle.Part TWO (the next 250 amateurs) will be shared in a couple of days. bare with me, it's quite time consuming to put these circles together. :)So here are the first 250 amateur photographers. You will find some very interesting feeds and some top notch photography in this circle, I guarantee you that. Add the circle and enjoy!WANT TO JOIN THE APC?For those of you not remembering the APC, it's one of my most shared and popular circles since I started here on Google+ a couple of years ago (this time, for example, the two announcement posts were shared over 1000 times!). Many participants have received thousands of new followers and some of the people I helped promote in the APC now boast more followers than I do! I love that! It speaks for the positiveness and quality of this circle.Now it's your turn to join the action. But only if you are an amateur photographer. This circle is NOT for bloggers, marketeers, SEO-ppl and their likes. If you do qualify, then read the guidelines on how to be a part of the APC.The GUIDELINES (yeah, you remember, huh?):1) Plus and comment this circle post to show that you want to participate (you must do that here on this original circle post). Please state what kind of photography you're into in your comment. You also may tag friends of yours to help promote them as well. I'll add them too if they meet my requirements.2) Reshare this circle post to help promote your fellow G-plussers. That way YOU will receive more attention once the circle is released (even if you are NOT in this first part of the circle). If you do not reshare, I won't add you to the next APC since this is a joint effort to promote good photographers. YOU deserve to be reshared, right? So does your fellow photographers.3) Please do NOT add external or internal links to albums, websites, blogs etc. in the comments. This post is not the right place for advertisement nor for spam. Such comments will be deleted and/or reported. Thanks.Let's show some Google+ love and spread the word! :)Have fun!Release DateThis circle was released on Tuesday, November 26.Have a great week everybody and enjoy all the great photography here on Google+!2013-11-26 18:38:52250137126166
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

Margaret Tompkins46,739>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Great Photographers With < 5,000 FollowersThe photographers here are all in my personal circles.  The choices are mine and mine alone.  No one asked, begged, or pleaded to belong.  No bribes were offered or accepted.  These are the people that I follow because I appreciate their great quality photography and their interaction.  Most I have met as I help curate several of the photography themes, and moderate the Landscape Photography Community.  There are NO requirements to share this circle.  I would appreciate the people in this circle plus the post, leave a comment, and share the circle as public.  Each profile has been verified by me.  Most have < 5,000 followers (when they were put into the circle).  They each have high quality original photography content.  You won’t find many animated gifs!  I have included myself in the circle and also the landscape page.  Many are fairly new to G+ so please make them feel welcome!!Landscape Photography:  I invite everyone to check out the +Landscape Photography #LandsacapePhotography theme.  If you want to impress me, that’s the place to do it!!  Post a great landscape that will get my attention.  See the About tab for all the details.I wasn’t included, what do I do?  If you meet the criteria, weren’t included, but think you should be, then leave me a comment.  Maybe I don’t know about you.  There are millions of people on G+ and I don’t know everyone.  However, I’ll be happy to have a look at your work if you will call it to my attention.  Start posting landscapes that get my attention (see above)!!There’s a really great photographer XXX that you didn’t include.  Please feel free to recommend qualified people.  I discover new people every day and would be happy to look at their work.  Please make sure that the recommended person meets the criteria.  If they don’t then that tells me a lot about you! #Circleshare   #Sharedcircles    2013-03-27 01:16:3020220844101

St Johns Bridge

Taken from Cathedral Park

The St. Johns Bridge is a steel suspension bridge that spans the Willamette River in Portland, Oregon, USA, between the St. Johns neighborhood and the northwest industrial area around Linnton. It carries U.S. Route 30 Bypass. It is the only suspension bridge in the Willamette Valley and one of three public highway suspension bridges in Oregon.[1] It is also the farthest north of any bridge on the Willamette.
The bridge has two 408 ft (124 m) tall Gothic towers, a 1,207 ft (368 m) center span and a total length of 2,067 ft (630 m). The adjacent park and neighborhood of Cathedral Park, Portland, Oregon are named after the Gothic Cathedral-like appearance of the bridge towers. It is the tallest bridge in Portland, with 400 ft (122 m) tall towers and a 205 ft (62 m) navigational clearance.

Where did little miss Muffet go?

This little spider was so small I didn't see it until I was reviewing a photo on my LCD, it didn't help that it was under the mushroom only a foot off the ground. Photos like this really cause me to be thankful for the articulating screen on my D5100. The mushroom was only about an inch tall, I'm guessing the spider was about the size of a grain of rice, maybe smaller.

Day 4 of the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge  has me converting an old favorite of mine. I have a 16x20" color version of this hanging on my wall and as I was pondering my next subject I looked up and saw it hanging there. For those curious it is Mt Hood Oregon during the blue hour after sunset.

Thanks +Ken Fowkes for giving me the challenge! Hey +Craig Pifer are you game for the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge  ? Consider yourself challenged!

Took this a few weeks ago while driving through Hood River Valley looking for the Red Barn. I wasn't really on a photography excursion but did have my camera with me while showing some out of towners around.  I never did find the Red Barn but +Kevin Brown was kind enough to provide me good enough directions that I should have no problem next time.

Day #3 of the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge  is about 30 minutes late, but hey it's still Monday somewhere right? This was taken back in April and originally processed with a reduced color pallet. The challenge caused me to remember to go back and try it as a true B&W like I had envisioned earlier.
 Like +Ken Fowkes will surely notice, this shot is stepping outside my normal comfort zone of Landscape photography and into something in many ways quite opposite.
 Instead of base ISO, small apertures and static subjects, shooting the concert was all about high ISO's, large apertures and constantly moving subjects. Needless to say it was a good learning experience!

In conclusion I would like to challenge +Tom Cooper to take the challenge.

Howdy! I'm +Kenneth Kruse but my friends call me Ken. I live on the Eastside near the Gorge and am always up to a new adventure (as long as it involves my camera, my wife or both!).

Looking forward to the next photowalk and hoping I'll be able to attend.

I don't do m any artistic "renderings" but this capture of the Morrison Bridge kept telling me it needed something else so I just listened to what it told me.

Dance with Me

The sifakas are unique lemurs in that they don't walk when on the ground. They do this hopping/dancing thing and move very quickly. Here is one new mom in mid-air - very fun to watch. This one is a Verreaux's Sifaka from Berenty Reserve in #Madagascar .

I love +Sierra Trading Post!

This is a photo I took from the top of Larch Mountain sitting high above the Columbia River Gorge in Oregon. It is possible to make the hike from Multnomah Falls all the way to the top but I chose the easy route from the parking lot near the summit. If you do make it to the 4,000 ft summit you'll be rewarded with a 360° view that looks across the Gorge to Mt Adams, Mt St Helens and Mt Adams (pictured here) the north, Mt Hood to the East, and as far south as Mt Bachelor.

Not seen in this photo are the hiking shoes and trekking poles I bought from +Sierra Trading Post. Next winter I might just try using my snowshoes (also from Sierra) to make the trek up. Since the road closes during winter It'll be quite the hike!

Hate reading slowly? Spritz aims to allow people to read 1,000 words per minute ... DigitalTrends -- "f you ever wanted to read “A Game of Thrones,” odds are you were put off by the sheer number of pages each book in the series contains. For example, it is 819 pages worth of reading. Especially if you’re a slow reader, that doesn’t sound like a very fun number of pages. What if I told you that you could read the massive book in less than five hours? Spritz allows you to do just that.

In “Stealth Mode” for roughly three years, Spritz enables people to read words as they appear one at a time, in rapid succession. With Spritz, you can read anywhere from 250 to 1,000 words per minute.

While rapid serial visual presentation (RSVP), which is another way to speed up your reading, already exists, Spritz differs in that it focuses on the “Optimal Recognition Point,” or ORP. Notice the red letter whenever a word passes by? That’s the ORP, or “fixation point.”

Normally, when you read, your eyes hop from word to word, all the while figuring out the meaning of the word. Not only does this take time, but you only spend 20 percent of that reading time on processing whatever content you’re reading. The remaining 80 percent is used to go from word to word while looking for that fixation point, running the risk of skipping shorter words.
By indicating the ORP with red, and positioning each word so the location of the ORP doesn’t change, Spritz allows you to read and process the content while not having your eyes jump from word to word. This differs from RSVP, which simply shows you words in rapid succession without focusing on the ORP. ..."

Mushrooms

Eyeing the grass for mushrooms, you will find
A stone or stain, a dandelion puff
Deceive your eyes—their colour is enough
To plump the image out to mushroom size
And lead you through illusion to a rind
That's true—flint, fleck or feather. With no haste
Scent-out the earthy musk, the firm moist white,
And, played-with rather than deluded, waste
None of the sleights of seeing: taste the sight
You gaze unsure of—a resemblance, too,
Is real and all its likes and links stay true
To the weft of seeing. You, to begin with,
May be taken in, taken beyond, that is,
This place of chiaroscuro that seemed clear,
For realer than a myth of clarities
Are the meanings that you read and are not there:
Soon, in the twilight coolness, you will come

Just loving this touching photo by +Lili Ana, it brings back memories of when my kids were little and pulling me around with the power of a John Deere tractor.

Happens to me that mostly the last shots are my favorite ones. As in this lovely case :)

Day #2 of the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge . This was taken at Silver Falls State Park in the great state of Oregon.

Vista House sitting guard over the Columbia River Gorge

I took this as a test shot for a planned moonrise over the Vista House. Unfortunately timing a full moon to rise in a spot over the vista house isn't easy. Factor in the fact that we have cloud cover for at least half the year and it might be awhile before I can actually pull this off! My next opportunity won't be until October!

St Johns Bridge

Taken from Cathedral Park

The St. Johns Bridge is a steel suspension bridge that spans the Willamette River in Portland, Oregon, USA, between the St. Johns neighborhood and the northwest industrial area around Linnton. It carries U.S. Route 30 Bypass. It is the only suspension bridge in the Willamette Valley and one of three public highway suspension bridges in Oregon.[1] It is also the farthest north of any bridge on the Willamette.
The bridge has two 408 ft (124 m) tall Gothic towers, a 1,207 ft (368 m) center span and a total length of 2,067 ft (630 m). The adjacent park and neighborhood of Cathedral Park, Portland, Oregon are named after the Gothic Cathedral-like appearance of the bridge towers. It is the tallest bridge in Portland, with 400 ft (122 m) tall towers and a 205 ft (62 m) navigational clearance.

Multnomah Falls has a brand new bridge!

Well I suppose it's not "brand new" but it sure looks like it's new. The iconic Benson Bridge was closed in January after sustaining serious damage caused by a falling rock. Although the bridge is still closed it appears like it's ready to be opened any day. I was up there today and saw workers bringing equipment down the stairs near the viewing platform at the base.

Photo taken with my Samsung Galaxy S4 in animated mode.

Day 5 of the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge . This is a photo of my friend Frank Murray and his band Petty Fever. Frank and the band were doing a celebration concert for winning the L.A. Music Awards in the category of Best Tribute Band. If you haven't figured it out by now he does an incredible rendition of Tom Petty.

I would like to thank +Ken Fowkes for challenging me, he has always been a great source of inspiration!

Not that it will be much of a challenge because I refer to him as the "Master of Monochrome" but I would like to see more of his latest creations, wadda ya say +Mark Tyler are you up to the challenge?

I've been kinda quiet around here lately. Any reason why would simply be an excuse, reality is I've just been kinda lazy lately. 

Anyhow, I came across this scene as we were driving home from camping a few weeks ago. I saw them as I was driving over a bridge that crossed this small river near the Oregon coast. Of course I had to turn around and capture the setting!

This is a photo of Lower South Falls located in the Silver Falls State Park of Oregon. I took this about a week or so ago but was motivated by +Ken Fowkes to try it out as a monochrome when he suggested I join the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge .

I'm hoping to get out and shoot tomorrow rain or shine, probably rain, maybe not "out".

We had a break in the rain just before sunset last nigh so I went out to the lake next to our house and snapped a few shots. The glassy surface attracted my attention but as soon as the ducks saw me walking out they broke the clam before the shot.
