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.

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 +2014-07-19 11:32:34175405CC G+

Gorka Ortiz43,868              (¯`·.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸¸.- JOIN THE FUN & SHARE -.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸¸.·´¯)== NEW REVIEWED REALEASE OF "THE GATHERING CIRCLE" ==I'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 week by week, 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 (if you haven't reached the 5000 limit yet!)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, agressive 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 continuosly 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 promotingartists creating their own stuff, that is what we photographers also do anyway.

Mario Rotta15,308This is a circle in which I included a lot of excellent photographers: but most of them start from pictures to create visual design effects. So, this circle may represent a list of people working on the edge between photography and art. I like that experimental edge :-)2014-05-22 06:00:41400016CC G+

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 May 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting April 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.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 +Gailen Mapes2014-05-19 10:39:39180516CC G+

Two Sisters  |  Marina City - Chicago, IL
From the blog: http://wp.me/p2PDWI-Fm

The two towers of Marina City have very unique architecture that you will not see anywhere else in the world. The first part of each tower is the garage, and you can see the cars through the open walls.

I am sure the design of these towers has seen a lot of debate, but I think it shows that Chicago is a place where architecture thrives. And this is why I love the city...

What do you think? Is Marina City a bold statement or an architectural misstep?

Gold City  |   State Street Bridge - Chicago, IL

Walking along the Chicago River is absolutely fantastic, whether you're a photographer or not. I had some spots in mind that I wanted to shoot, but I saw so many other things.

When we passed State Street Bridge, the golden light was shining on the river and some of the building. I stopped and set up my tripod to shoot a long exposure to get smooth water. I quickly added my ND filter before the light changed and took this shot.

Just a glimpse...  |  View from Ward's Island - Toronto, ON
From the blog: http//wp.me/p2PDWI-Io

A few weeks ago, +Neil Howard was in Toronto for work and we met up on one evening. After dinner, I took him to Ward's island to shoot the skyline at dusk. Despite the (relative) cold and some bugs, we had a great time and I managed to shoot a few nice images.

Neil is a great guy and a great photographer, I strongly encourage you to have a look at his profile!

This is a unusual style of processing for me, but after seeing the image on my camera LCD screen, I knew exactly what I wanted to do...

The best location to shoot Chicago's skyline: the Adler Planetarium and Solidarity Drive

Please click on the image to see it bigger, it’s worth it! Every time I visit a city, one of my goals is to capture a compelling image of its skyline. I created a dedicated page for this project, so you can see all the skylines I have shot. In Chicago,…

Christmas Skating  |  Nathan Phillips Square - Toronto, ON

I'm glad it's finally summer around here, to be able to enjoy the swimming pool and the barbecues in our building.

Here is a shot from last December when it was freezing cold. It seems so far away now, with the hot and humid weather... This is the ice rink in front of the City Hall in Toronto. Right now, it's a fountain, if you can imagine!

Three  |  View from the John Hancock Center - Chicago, IL
From the blog: http://wp.me/p2PDWI-GU

+360 Chicago offers fantastic views over the Magnificent Mile and the 3 tallest towers in the city; from right to left: the Willis Tower, the International Trump Tower and Hotel, the Aon Center.

Using a Gorillapod to hold the camera and my hands to hide the reflections, I was able to capture this image of Chicago, looking towards the South.

Convergence  |  Bay Adelaide Centre - Toronto, ON
From the blog: http://wp.me/p2PDWI-GC 

This is my latest fine art architectural image, featuring the Bay Adelaide Centre (left) and the Trump Tower (right) in Downtown Toronto.

I saw this spot one day that I was just running errands and I had pretty much this composition in mind from the beginning. When I went back to shoot long exposures, I knew exactly what to do!

On another note, I am currently reading "From Basics to Fine Art" by +Julia Anna Gospodarou and +Joel Tjintjelaar. I'm only a few chapters in and it's already very inspiring. A great read that I recommend.

The Street of the Stars  |  LaSalle Street Bridge - Chicago, IL
From the blog: http://wp.me/p2PDWI-C2

The city transforms itself at night and looks so different from what you are used to see during the day. The orange light of lamp posts has a huge impact on night photography, changing dramatically the white balance.

In this image, I chose to embrace the orange light instead of trying to mitigate it.

The stars you see in this image were made in camera, and were not added in processing. It is very simple to obtain that effect: simply use an aperture of f/11 or higher at night. The stars will vary with your lens, but I find that f/14 or f/16 are a good spot.

The City Of Tomorrow  |  Chicago River - Chicago, IL
From the blog: www.anotherangle.eu/blog/

The +Cityscape Bar in Chicago has one of the best vantage points in the city. I haven't seen many places that offer such a perfect view of a city.

You're not too low, not too high, you have the view over the river, you can see the Willis Tower, what else do you need?

The staff was nice enough to let us shoot with tripods inside the bar. I strongly recommend that you take the time to get a drink first. It's a very nice bar with great views to enjoy, and you will get on the good side of the waiters.

360 Chicago at the top of the John Hancock Center offers some great views over downtown Chicago and it's not as crowded as the Willis Tower.

This is a view toward the south, featuring Michigan Avenue (or the Magnificent Mile) in the foreground and the Trump International Tower & Hotel on the right.

Front Row Seats  |  Jay Pritzker Pavilion - Chicago, IL

I must confess that I shamelessly borrowed this vantage point from the awesome +Chris Smith and his great ebook (http://goo.gl/FTXiGs).

The only reason I got this image is because I carefully prepared my trip and researched online the spots I wanted to photograph. In this particular case, I used Chris' ebook that lists 100 locations in Chicago to find some nice points of view.

My favorite thing to do before a trip is to browse and search Google+ and 500px. I always find nice inspiration and locations I would not have found otherwise.

Gold City  |   State Street Bridge - Chicago, IL

Walking along the Chicago River is absolutely fantastic, whether you're a photographer or not. I had some spots in mind that I wanted to shoot, but I saw so many other things.

When we passed State Street Bridge, the golden light was shining on the river and some of the building. I stopped and set up my tripod to shoot a long exposure to get smooth water. I quickly added my ND filter before the light changed and took this shot.

Trying to be god  |  View from the Willis Tower - Chicago, IL

The Skydeck at the top of the Willis Tower in Chicago provides tremendous views of the city. I always enjoy shooting from higher ground such as skyscrapers, but it is not without its challenges.

This image is an 8 seconds exposure and was shot on a small Gorillapod, while I was holding my hands on each side of the lens to cover reflections. After a few tries and a lot of patience, I manage to get this shot.

To get a more natural feel, I also had to correct the perspective in Lightroom, because shooting downward tends to skew vertical lines.

Sand dunes are quite mesmerizing. There are not the most beautiful landscape, or the most striking, but there is something special about them.

And this is very true about Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes in Death Valley. Their shape is quite unique and provide a great foreground to the mountain range. I love the contrast.

The Last Time We Fight  |  View from the Willis Tower - Chicago, IL
From the blog: http://wp.me/p2PDWI-Fo 

I love Chicago, and the city is even more beautiful when seen from the top of the Willis Tower!

It was the first time I was using a Gorillapod, but it's pretty handy when you cannot use a full-size tripod. I even manage to shoot the panorama below that is not too bad!

The main problem up there is the reflections and the dirty windows. With some patience and some cleanup in Photoshop, you can get decent results...

The Trump International Hotel & Tower is one of the latest additions to the Chicago skyline. Second tallest building in the city, it has a very elegant architecture, with several steps. Each step matches the height of one of the surroundings buildings.

The best location to photograph the tower is the Outer Drive Bridge on Lake Shore Drive, because it gives you a fantastic view over the river with the Trump Tower in the background.

From the blog: http://wp.me/p2PDWI-Fm

The two towers of Marina City have very unique architecture that you will not see anywhere else in the world. The first part of each tower is the garage, and you can see the cars through the open walls.

I am sure the design of these towers has seen a lot of debate, but I think it shows that Chicago is a place where architecture thrives. And this is why I love the city...

What do you think? Is Marina City a bold statement or an architectural misstep?

Something Happened
Racetrack Playa - Death Valley National Park, CA
From the blog: http://wp.me/p2PDWI-C2

I have visited many places in the world, especially in North America, but it is not often that one particular location has such an effect on me...

Being alone in the middle of the rocks, that moved by themselves in a way that we cannot explain yet was truly magical. And when you add that the closest paved road is 30 miles (50km) away (not even talking about the closest city), then it's simply surreal.

We spent the night in the car and the night was darker than anything I have ever seen (coming from Europe). The night sky was simply fantastic.

In any case, I hope this image will give you an idea of what it was like.
