Margaret Tompkins101,687>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Great Photographers With < 25,000 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.  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 < 25,000 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.  Some 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 but please only one.  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!A while back, I had a wonderful discussion about circles with +Robin Griggs Wood and +Charles Lupica .  If you don't know them, then let me introduce you to two of the finest people here on G+!    Charles is a master of monochrome!!  Robin is a master of everything and a mentor to all of us!!  Did you know that she speaks seagull!!   I hope that both Robin and Charles will look you all over and give you a share!  There aren't many quality vetted circles shared on G+.  I'm proud to say that this is one of them!!#Circleshare   #Sharedcircles  2014-02-16 03:26:0247725963163CC G+

Magnus Ericson35,090Now it's been awhile since I posted my very first public circle so here's an update. I have named the circle "Artistic People" Most are photographers who continually share their own pictures of good quality.The only thing you need to do to get into, and stay in the circle is to continue to have me in your circles and share your own great photos without a lot of other bling bling, youtube clip, animated gifs and so on in your stream.I've probably forgotten one or more that should have been in the circle, but I'm neither the first nor the last to do so.Hope you like my "Artistic People Circle" and that you pass it along to your own circles. Please leave a comment of what you think.2013-08-12 11:20:3528531927CC G+

Blair Kunkel5,687ATTENTION - Since my original snowball circle(Share Circle #1) circle grew so fast it reached over 2,000 members!  It has been brought to my attention that each time the circle is shared and added to YOUR circles, you are only able to add under 500 people. SO...to make sure that this circle of awesome people continues to grow, I have divided all 2,000 members into 7 other share circles(so far) and each of those share circles 2-7 are starting out with 400 members each. That will allow each circle to snowball up to 100 more members each.  Once each of those circles reach 500 members, I will create a new share circle...and so on and so on.--------------------------------------------------Welcome to SHARE CIRCLE #5--------------------------------------------------Want to be added to this SNOWBALL CIRCLE and increase the number or your followers?  To be added to this circle you must do these things in this order:1.  You must PLUS the post.2.  You must SHARE the post.3.  You must ADD the circle.(Remember, you can only have 5,000 people in your circles overall so make sure you have the room to add everyone in this circle first)4   And lastly, you must comment below when you have done the three above to let me know.Just want to remind you that in order for me to add you to this circle you MUST share this circle.  I always check the activity and I see who shares it and also +1's it too.

Gailen Mapes26,221Hand Picked Photographers Circles - "Unknown or Other" Camera A-F - 11 of 14Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 500 members.I am now sharing one circle per day, for the reason see:https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/posts/RrPNTzHhQuHAs before these circles are photographers that I admire. They also have "more photos, less spam." There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).Be sure to get all 14 circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to April 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting March 15th.)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 #handpickedcircles   #sharedcircles #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle2013-04-11 10:58:3937616213CC G+

Follow people.2.) Comment and +1 their posts.3.) Get in circle shares.4.) Share circles.Who are in this circleLots of great photographers who mainly share their own photo's in their stream and you will like them.Who can join?Everybody. As long as you have a interest in (nature) photography and MAINLY share your own work in your feed.Unfortunally with so many photographers on google plus, the chance to forget somebody is very big. It was never my intention to leave somebody out deliberately.What to do when you want in the circle?just ask here, when you got an +1 you are in next circle.first circle you can find here:https://plus.google.com/u/0/115533614048623021648/posts/TtZEbNh1U9g#sharedcircles #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles#circleshare #circlesharing #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles#pixelworld  #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle#thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle  #ICircle2013-01-07 18:36:21335801859CC G+
Slavo Herman180I'd like to share with you the circle in which a little surprisingly I discovered my name. It is a circle with people who got one nomination to "Best of Google Plus 2012" created as the Circle No. 3 by +Kurt Smith.(He also created two more circles, No. 1 and 2, containing people with more nominations - you can find them at http://goo.gl/tAePD and http://goo.gl/7IBkV respectively :)2013-01-07 16:40:4448423115CC G+
Trever McGhee18,273+Take2seconds to click the add button on this circle!Last week +Kurt Smith asked people to name 5 people they thought should be named the 'Best of Google Plus 2012'.  He received 1,308 nominations for 730 Plussers.We were honored to be among them, so we've created two circles to honor those chosen.This is the second of 2 circles from that list.Their all worthy of a follow .. a circle  to see what they bring to your stream.Check them out for a week...keep the ones that you like at the end of the week and then put the rest aside for another time :-))))People always ask me to add them or another person to the next circle when I share circles from other people to help them connect with others...Well I can't add you to their circle but what I can do is create another circle for you.So if you would like to be in the next one or would like to recommend someone,1st. please leave a comment of why you or they should be in the next circle, why people should circle you back.2nd. please share this circle to the public stream to help these people connect with others.I'll create a circle once a week with your suggestion.P.S. if your in the above circle and would like to be in the next one, just let me know. #bestofgoogleplus   #bestofgoogleplus2012   #circle   #circles   #circleshare   #circlesharing   #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedpubliccircles   #sharedcircles   #sharedmycircles   #sharedcircleoftheday   #publicshare   #publiccircles   #publicsharedcircles   #publiccirclesproject   #addmetoyourcircles   #awesomecircle   #awesomeness   #awesomepeople   #awesomecircle  +Circles 2013-01-02 20:58:1649052430CC G+
Kurt Smith21,124Here's The 'Best of Google Plus 2012' Circle Share (Circle 3 of 3)Last week I asked other plussers to name 5 Plussers they think should be named the 'Best of Google Plus 2012'. They nominated others based on what they think makes a really good Google Plusser - original & quality content; makes you think, laugh, & enjoy Google Plus more; engages with others; shares and helps others; etc. We got 1,308 nominations for 730 Plussers.This is the third of 3 Circle Shares of those named the 'Best of Google Plus' - this circle contains those who got 2-3 votes. These are plussers other plussers think are among the Best on Google Plus and I believe we should all circle and consider following them because other quality plussers we can trust recommend following them.Like the other circles I've curated ('Thought Provokers' & 'Plussers Who Give A Boost') you can only get in these circles on the recommendation of another plusser (no "add me" going on here). So this is a quality group that should be recognized for making Google Plus better for all of us.Let's encourage quality on G+ and the best way we can do that is to Add & Share these circles. It took some work to put this together, so the best 'thank you' you can give me (and the nominees) is to add, share and encourage your followers to do the same.Circle 1 (those who got 4+ nominations): http://goo.gl/tAePDCircle 2 (those who 2-3 nominations): http://goo.gl/7IBkVWondering who nominated you?

Thank you everyone who contributed to +SacredSunday™! We appreciate your participation very much!The curators for +SacredSunday™ (that's +Chatchai Rombix, +Robyn Morrison, +Justin Hill, +Steve Barge and yours truly) encourage you to share with us and the G+ community what you hold sacred; people activity, temples, churches, historical information, poems, songs, texts or support.  SacredSunday is like a big travel around the physical and spiritual world. We promote no religion over any other and invite you to share with us what you hold sacred.On behalf of the whole team we would like to thank everyone! Hopefully the circle includes everyone that posted to Sacred Sunday this week, but experience says we missed some. We apologize if that is you.Google+ has changed over the last year and so has changed SacredSunday. The introduction of communities is now a great opportunity to enjoy a hazzle- and troll-free SacredSunday. If you want to share a photo that shows more than the depicted subject, if you want to share a poem, or a thought that means something to you, then consider joining the SacredSunday community. One last word: this was my last time as an active SacredSunday curator. I had a great time with you and my wonderful co-curators, but after a year I want to back off a bit and enjoy a non-working Sunday again.The future's bright, so let's fill that community and the SacredSunday spirit with life! Thank you very much! #circleshare   #sharedcircles  2012-12-19 00:22:297414418CC G+

Early spring heralds finally found their way out of the soil last weekend. At last!

I wonder how this effekt would look like if the stones of Cologne Cathedral would have their original colour of sand stone (instead of the almost black tone they have acquired in the last century). Something like Notre Dame in Paris. But having the same bright facade here would be an impossible dream, wouldn't it?

This impressive window of Cologne's Minoritenkirche can only be captured properly from outside. Inside it's mostly covered by the organ. 

Taken on APX 100, developed with Tetenal ultrafin, beefed up a bit with Silver Efex 2. For #SacredSunday

This is one of the windows by Jan Thorn Prikker (1868-1932) in St George church, Cologne. One of my first film shots in a church. Much room for improvement.

If you're living in Europe, especially in the EU, you probably should buy what you need as quick as you can. When politicians start to dispossess depositors, like they're going to do in Cyprus, you know that nothing is as safe as it seemed to be this far. Sure, black money owners will be glad to escape unscathed widely, but to soak these people with a normal savings account is undoubtly a breach of taboo. And again it's the many banks that are going to be saved, and none of their shareholders will have to pay.
This will be a restless weekend for Cyprus (and once again, for Greece, too). Their holiday tomorrow is the orthodox equivalent to Ash Wednesday, as I've learned today. How fitting. Guess what happens next.

The last, this, and the following shots were taken on Kodak APX 100 film. I finally developed them last week, using a new developer, Tetenal ultrafin, and I'm quite happy with the results. Compared with my old chemicals the new photos are much more rich in detail.

A witty interview with IEEE and ACM fellow Moshe Vardi on the job market of 2045, and what kind of future we will have to expect. Fortunately he doesn't go as far as to give us an overly optimistic or pessimistic prediction. I'm, however, not fully satisfied: the last two decades brought us the working poor. Germany's wealth is partially based on a low-pay sector that doesn't need expensive innovations in AI and robotics. No doubt, there will be new and exciting technology in the next decades, but in my opinion it will lead to cheap labour and neither to increasing wealth for the masses nor to ample spare time for the workers.

The entrance to Cologne's Mediapark, a large area formerly owned by Deutsche Bahn, then redesigned for everything Media. A lot of stories could be told here, but let's say that now you can find here everything but media (apart from a cinema complex).

The peasantry is of special importance for the city of Cologne in the Middle Ages. At one of Cologne's old city gates you can see this inscription below a sculpture of the boor: Halt fass do Kölscher Boor. Bliev beim Rich et fall sös ov sor. (Hold on, farmer of Cologne! Stay with the Reich, be it sweet or sour.)

But that's not the only pleasant news of this weekend. We actually had a bit of sunshine yesterday!

Kudos, Switzerland! I have an ardent imagination of Germany's economists howling with pain if similar referendums would be possible in my country, and if they would have similar results.

£60,- for a tiny fisheye-lens camera that takes real photos: a charming project!

Looking down at the lower level. And that's already the last one of this series.

1,800 trains call at the station per day and the daily number of passengers is estimated to be at 350,000. (says Wikipedia). Who knows how many are coming just for shopping. Some of these stores and supermarkets are pretty big.

The scale of this Christmas tree was really remarkable.

The top and bottom levels are used by the railway, everything between is for shopping and navigating through the station.

Berlin Central is the successor of a much smaller station called Lehrter Bahnhof, one of the final stops of West-Berlin in the years before the reunification. This was a bleak and underpopulated place with a strong end-of-the-world feeling. A lot has changed since then.

Light architecture: you sometimes wonder if it's really stable. There are other big railway stations in Germany, but Berlin Central's openness is without precedent.

The hustle and bustle is well distributed on these large areas. It's never as crowded as in smaller stations.

Ah, that's better. Two main levels and three levels for shopping, entry, and exit, densely packed under a giant glass surface: Berlin Central.

Some of these shots (like this one) were taken with my 50mm lens. This 'compressed' some of the views nicely, but the big dimensions of Berlin Central made me change to my wide angle lens quickly.

It was a few weeks before Christmas when I was taking this and the following shots (just saying for the ones who attend our walk a bit later). This Christmas tree in the entrance hall of Berlin Central was probably the biggest of the whole city.

Let's take a walk. This is the exterior of Berlin outside, and you admittedly won't see much, as this shot (and the whole series) was taken in December. Snow was falling, the evening was pitch black, and it was pretty cold. In the warm season this would be an impressive sight, but not now: let's get inside, there's enough to see, and the lights are switched on.

Here I could romance about Plato's Allegory of the Cave, but it's already a bit late for this.

This guy was introduced as "Barry White, jr.". Quite cool!
