Gailen Mapes0Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  M-O - 19 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 April 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting March 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 Mapes2014-04-19 10:33:001783110CC G+

Gorka Ortiz39,921           (¯`·.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸¸.- JOIN THE FUN & SHARE -.¸¸.·´¯`·.¸¸.·´¯)==WELCOME TO REALEASE 28 OF "THE GATHERING CIRCLE"== *THANK YOU GUYS* for all your plusses & shares, much 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 already!)PLEASE READ:1.- I am promoting and sharing this circle in my stream so, please do the same from your side.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 mostly 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 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 the profile.B) Your page or profile mostly has spam links to some kind of business where they you lend money or stuff like that.C) Your page or profile mostly doesn't have anything else but spam, ads or links to commercial sites.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. 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. ;-)Thank you very much indeed for your friendship and cooperation ;-)#gatheringcircle   #thegatheringcircle         #circleshare       #circlesharing         #circleoftheday   #handpicked         #sharedcircles         #sharedcircle       #sharedpubliccircles     #fullcircleshare         #addmetoyourcircles     #circleoftheday     #bestsharedcircle         #thebestcirclesongoogle     #thebestcircle     #circles         2014-04-14 12:55:38402166148171CC G+

Earth-shattering  |  Badwater Basin - Death Valley National Park, CA
From the blog: http://wp.me/p2PDWI-C1

We were really lucky in Death Valley to get some beautiful clouds for the sunset. As the driest area in the U.S., Death Valley doesn't get so many clouds, which is a shame when it comes to photography.

Badwater Basin is a huge area in Death Valley that is covered in salt. If you are visiting, I strongly recommend walking a little while to go further than where everyone has stepped. The flats are so big, that it's easy to find a pristine area.

Fine art architecture photography of the Scotia Plaza in Toronto

Here is the second architectural image from Toronto, where I moved a few months ago. This image features the Scotia Plaza, one of the most iconic skyscrapers in Canada, and the third tallest building in Canada (275 m or 902 ft). I really love how the…

Envy is too easy  |  Place Nautique, Confluence - Lyon, France
From the ebook "Bleu Lyon": http://goo.gl/rDDDPJ

The Confluence mall is part of a huge project aiming at renovating the district south of the city center. It includes this mall, apartment buildings, offices and administrative buildings.

Most of these buildings are very modern, with interesting designs and energy-efficient architecture. I believe it will be a very nice place to live in 2 or 3 years.

I would love to go back to Lyon in a few years to see the transformation and to photograph the architecture. If you are visiting France, stop by Lyon, it's a beautiful city.

The Power Of Light  |  Shangri-La - Toronto, ON
From the blog: http://wp.me/p2PDWI-Ey 

Here is my first architectural image from Toronto, at the Shangri-La.

It took me a while to complete this image, several weeks actually. I came back several times to edit it, changing a few things each time, but I wasn't entirely happy with it.

I finally saw that the composition was not right, so I chose to crop and rotate the image, for the final result that you see here.

I go into details about my creative process for this image on my blog: http://wp.me/p2PDWI-Ey

Perspective  |  Part-Dieu - Lyon, France
From the ebook "Bleu Lyon": http://goo.gl/rDDDPJ

An usual view of the most recent skyscraper in Lyon: the Oxygen Tower.

It's not a big tower, but it shows that Lyon is definitely growing its economic presence and its the first of several upcoming projects.

When you wander around the Part-Dieu mall, there is a terrace with a few palm tree (which is quite odd). It is however a nice place to have lunch or coffee in summer.

Dawning of a prophecy  |  Capitol Reef National Park, UT
From the blog: http://wp.me/p2PDWI-Bg 

Cathedral Valley is definitely my favorite place in Capitol Reef!

You need to drive about one hour on a gravel road to reach the first rock formations, but it's worth the trouble (and the road is not that bad).

Pictured below is the Temple of the Sun in Lower Cathedral Valley at sunrise. We drove at night to reach this location before sunrise and got some nice little clouds behind the temple. It's one of my favorite places in the U.S. South-West.

Sunset cruise  |  Ward's Island Ferry - Toronto, ON

The winter is finally over here in Toronto after many months of cold cold weather. Here's a shot of Downtown Toronto from Ward's Island.

The ferry you see is the one you can take to reach the island. It's a 15 minutes ride from Downtown and it's definitely a great ride when the lake is frozen!

Fremont Experience  |  Fremont Street - Las Vegas, NV

A lot of people miss Fremont Street when visiting Las Vegas, but it is definitely worth a visit to see the amazing screens covering the street!

The whole street is covered with these giant screens that come to life once the sun has set. Most of the time, there is the eerie galaxy animation with shootings stars, but at the top of the hour, there is a special show.

La route du savoir  |  Université Jean Moulin - Lyon, France

This is one of my favorite images of one of my favorite cities! This gorgeous buildings are part of the a university and I wish I went there!

I love the lighting on old buildings and bridges at night. It definitely shows the landmarks in an original way, which is fantastic for photographers. The blue hour is a great time for cityscapes!

Mist Cauldron  |  Horseshoe Falls - Niagara Falls, ON

I think what is maybe the most impressive thing about Niagara Falls is the sheer amount of mist that comes out of the waterfall.

You can see it from fat away and if the wind is not in the right direction, you will get soaked. In winter, the water instantly freezes all over you!

Harvesting Light  |  Elephant Rock - Valley of Fire State Park, NV

The sun star effect is always a fun thing to try at sunrise or sunset to make your image more interesting!

It's actually fairly easy to do! When shooting directly towards the sun (or other light sources), use an small aperture (f/16 or more). I find the effect is enhanced when shooting against an edge. Here it's the mountain range and the rock, but it can be a tree, a building or a person for example.

Try it, it's a lot of fun!

Winds of Change  |  Elephant Rock - Valley of Fire State Park, NV

Elephant Rock is such a fantastic rock formation! Nature certainly knows how to put a twist on things...

When visiting Valley of Fire, Elephant Rock is definitely a must-see. Don't forget to go behind the rock to see the best side (the one in the image).

We had beautiful clouds on that afternoon in Valley of Fire, which I believe is quite rare in the desert. It definitely brings another dimension to the image!

Cracks of Winter  |  Horseshoe Falls - Niagara Falls, ON

If you have never seen Niagara Falls, it's hard to understand how much ice there is, but trust me, it's huge! Just imagine that the entire white area with cracks below the falls is usually water.

Snow and ice just kept piling up all winter, and this is the result in early March. It was definitely worth another visit, especially without the summer crowds.

Layers of Winter  |  Horseshoe Falls - Niagara Falls, ON

I had the opportunity to go back to Niagara Falls in early March, and I was pleased to see the ice and snow have accumulated during the winter.

Just imagine that the huge block in front of the falls is only ice, and that in summer there is absolutely nothing there. I was so impressed by the sheer amount of ice!

Last Words  |  Coral Pink Sand Dunes State Park, UT

Coral Pink Sand Dunes is a little State Park in Utah, but it's a lot of fun to visit, especially if you have kids!

The only downside for photography is the presence of ATVs, which means a lot of noise and a lot of tracks. But if you take your time, you will enjoy the park and find nice spots (like the one below) were the sand is untouched.

The sunset light gives a fantastic color to the sand, which is great for your images.

A Fire In The Distance  |  Horseshoe Bend - Page, AZ

It does not always matter where you are, sometimes it is just a matter of when you are there.

Without these clouds, I don't think I would have enjoyed Horseshoe Bend that much. Don't get me wrong, it's a pretty place, but I prefer more remote places, where you do not have 50 people waiting for the sunset and boats in the river.

But all that stop mattering the moment these clouds caught fire. Everything came together: the river reflecting the blue sky, the red rugged cliffs, the shape and colors of the clouds... it was a prefect moment.

A Long Winter  |  Harbour Front - Toronto, ON

Last week, I went up the CN tower in Toronto to see the frozen lake from the upper observation deck, the skypod. I must say I had a great time!

Full resolution panorama - best viewed large to zoom in

Shooting from the tallest building of a city really gives you an unusual vantage point, a sort of bird's eye view. In this case, it was a great way to see where the ice on the lake ended.

Winter City  |  Harbour Front - Toronto, ON

Last week, I went up the CN tower in Toronto to see the frozen lake from the upper observation deck, the skypod.

Full resolution panorama - best viewed large to zoom in

Even though it's rather pricey, I must say it was a great time to go up there. There wasn't any crowds like there is in summer and the view over the partially frozen lake Ontario was stunning!

Photographing from the skypod is not easy because the windows are separated by huge steel beams that make it harder. Also, the glass is far from clean!

I made this panorama overlooking the south part of the Harbour Front and the ever-growing condominiums. The limit of the ice is actually due to the presence of islands (including the Toronto Billy Bishop Airport).

Doom is upon us   |  The Watchman - Zion National Park, UT

This is such an iconic place in Zion Nation Park that I'm not sure what to say about it. It is shot from a bridge where photographers gather everyday to photograph the sunset light over the mountain know as the Watchman.

Unfortunately we missed the fall colors by a few weeks, but I like the desolated feeling of the foreground (hence the title). I debated for a long time between the landscape or portrait orientation but I think I like this one better.

The Bridge To The Other Side
Owachomo Bridge - Natural Bridges National Monument, UT

Watching the stars at Natural Bridges is simply overwhelming for a European like me who is used to way too much light pollution. Natural Bridges was the first International Dark Sky Park. 

This is my very first attempt at photographing the stars. It is not an easy task I must say. I think the toughest part is focusing. I slightly light painted the bridge for my foreground and turned out pretty well.

I used +Dave Morrow's tutorial for the processing part and it worked out well. In October we did not have the nicest part of the Milky way, but it's still amazing to watch.

What do you think?
