Henry A. Otero (Hanko9)122,652#Spartacus : War Of The DamnedGaius Claudius Glaber is dead. Many months have passed since his defeat, and the rebel army, led by Spartacus and his generals Crixus, Gannicus and Agron, continue to amass victories over Rome. With the rebel numbers swelling to thousands of freed slaves, it has become a force that has started to challenge even the mighty armies of Rome.Spartacus is more determined than ever to bring down the entire Roman Republic. Following the death of Ashur, Naevia and Crixus fight as one with newfound strength and determination. And Gannicus, always seeking toembrace life to the fullest, shares his bed with the beautiful and dangerous Saxa.Together, the rebels engage in one bloody skirmish after another and prepare for the inevitable: a full out war with Rome.The Roman Senate turns to its wealthiest citizen, Marcus Crassus, for aid. A powerful, strategic politician, he respects his opponent and refuses to make the same mistakes Glaber and his predecessors have. With a young and fiercely competitive Julius Caesar as an ally, Crassus is determined to crush Spartacus and his rebellion.The epic conclusion of a legendary journey, Spartacus: War of the Damned will unleash a battle unlike anything ever seen before.Spartacus: War of the Damned [Season Premiere]2013-01-26 03:00:00142

Gailen Mapes71,322Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera A-C - 14 of 31Note: 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 November 7th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting October 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.

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 October 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting September 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.

Gailen Mapes66,836Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Nikon Camera  A-C - 14 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 +2014-08-14 10:24:52192005

How do you like your HDR?



Earlier today I was watching Jack Davis on +CreativeLive talking about high dynamic range photography. I found the first few segments (about mobile capture and editing apps) quite enlightening. Then he went on to discuss creating HDR using your DSLR. So I took a brief drive in the country near my house this afternoon, and attempted to get some shots of the Autumn colors. However, this process is a lot harder than it looks. I wasn't really happy with most of the (SOOC) images from my Nikon D90, so I played around in both Lightroom and Photoshop, trying to get something that looked closer to what I saw while browsing from the car. Unfortunately, this still doesn't truly reflect what I witnessed; but as I said, getting an artistic (yet still believable) result is still kind of a mystery to me, so hopefully tomorrow I'll get some more tips and... more »

On occasion, you may even be asked to discipline other birds who engaged in unauthorized #splatterday  activities.

"The ultimate value of life depends upon awareness and the power of contemplation rather than upon mere survival."
~ Aristotle





I'm baaaaaaaaack! Did anybody miss me?
After more than a week getting repaired at the Apple Store, I finally have my iMac home again where it belongs. (Many thanks to +Richard Ball for helping to ease my mind while waiting for the diagnosis.) As it turns out, the video card was the culprit behind 99% of the issues I was having, and once replaced (and with a brand new install of the OS), everything seems back to normal. My wife said I was going through withdrawal, so she is thrilled that my incessant complaining and worrying is now all in the past! I'm so happy to be able to process images again. So here is a fading bloom from the Chrysanthemum Festival (only at Longwood Gardens for a few more days).more »

"To have faith is to trust yourself to the water. When you swim you don't grab hold of the water, because if you do you will sink and drown. Instead you relax, and float."

I've truly enjoyed participating in this #splittonefivedaychallenge  full of exploration and mystery. Many thanks to +Alan Shapiro for taking us all on this exciting journey! For my final day, I'd like to invite the ROYGBIV Queen +Susan Porter to play along too if she wishes. 

I processed the RAW file using Lightroom 5, and the following settings:

"In order to change the world, you have to get your head together first."
~Jimi Hendrix




For the last few days I've had the privilege of participating in the #splittonefivedaychallenge  started by +Alan Shapiro. It's been a real adventure exploring a whole new level of monochrome processing. The skull featured here is from one of the Halloween decorations in my area, and was actually a glittery purple hue in the original image.  So this is my shot for Day 4.

I processed the RAW file using Lightroom 5, and the following settings:

"Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference."
~Winston Churchill




One of these things is not like the other; one of these things does not belong... Or does it? Who am I to say what is right or wrong about what we encounter in nature? I have no idea what the stranger was doing amidst these tiny red rosebuds. But perhaps it had an important job to do that day. Maybe all those narrow little bristles provided the perfect balance for a butterfly to land on. All I know is, I go out with my camera, and sometimes I see what I expect, and other times I am pleasantly surprised by something entirely new and unusual.

+Alan Shapiro encouraged us all to take monochrome processing to the next level, so he created the #splittonefivedaychallenge . I've grown to love B&W over the last year and a half, so this extension of learning seemed like a fun way to continue exploring the genre. 

I processed the RAW file using Lightroom 5, and the following settings:
Highlight hue 60
Saturation 50
Balance +55
Shadow hue 280
Saturation 70

If she hasn't already been tagged, I invite +Saji Saju to play along too, since she did such an incredible job with her recent contributions to the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge .

"Autumn's fire burns slowly along the woods and day by day the dead leaves fall and melt."
~William Allingham



+Alan Shapiro just challenged us all to a new project, going beyond the traditional black and white elements, and exploring the realm of split tones. So I accept the challenge, and offer Day 1 of my own contribution to the new #splittonefivedaychallenge  theme.

I processed the RAW file using Lightroom 5, and the following settings:
Highlight hue 55
Saturation 82
Balance +80
Shadow hue 135
Saturation 30

If she is interested in participating, I'd like to invite +Ellie Kennard to join in the fun here also.

BRAND NEW MATERIAL, NEVER SEEN ELSEWHERE

Late last week I joined the #tsunation  during the #tsunami  of media frenzy about the new platform. The network is still very young, and we are all exploring and experimenting one day at a time. First I should point out that there are many who immediately didn't like the vibe there, and that's OK. Personally, I am trying to be patient, and see what kind of potential it might have for growth. I admit, there are times when the stream seems extremely spammy, and that's annoying for everyone. So it has taken quite a bit of manual configuration, to determine which folks will help enhance the network, and which are simply trying to make a quick buck. (FYI, unless you have magic powers like +Christine DeGraff and can materialize thousands of children and grandchildren overnight, it might take a little while longer for the rest of us toex... more »

BRAND NEW MATERIAL, NEVER SEEN ELSEWHERE

Late last week I joined the #tsunation  during the #tsunami  of media frenzy about the new platform. The network is still very young, and we are all exploring and experimenting one day at a time. First I should point out that there are many who immediately didn't like the vibe there, and that's OK. Personally, I am trying to be patient, and see what kind of potential it might have for growth. I admit, there are times when the stream seems extremely spammy, and that's annoying for everyone. So it has taken quite a bit of manual configuration, to determine which folks will help enhance the network, and which are simply trying to make a quick buck. (FYI, unless you have magic powers like +Christine DeGraff and can materialize thousands of children and grandchildren overnight, it might take a little while longer for the rest of us to expand our individual networks to the point that they could potentially become a small revenue stream.) But like everything else in life, you get out of it what you put into it. And since we are on the ground floor of this opportunity, it's pretty exciting to watch how it develops. It's clear I won't be buying a car with any proceeds from here; but even if it helps me share my photography with a new audience, then that's a win in my book.

So that's why I decided to offer some premium content, exclusively on that channel. I am sharing images on there that have never before been seen here, or on Facebook or Twitter. This is brand new, fresh material! So if you'd like to see what I have going on over there, feel free to check it out at the URL below:
http://www.tsu.co/ShannonAdelson
Let me know what you think. I am eager to hear ALL feedback, both the good and the bad. I remember what G+ was like during the beta days, and that heightened level of engagement can be invigorating. There are so many #socialmedia  channels these days, and more popping up all over the place all the time. WHY should you go to #tsu  instead of somewhere else? Well, I can't answer that for you; all I can tell you is that I am still getting a feel for the place, and learning something new every day. There really is no magic formula to make your #socialmediamarketing  go viral and catapult your page into an instant internet superstar. There's no substitute for good old fashioned hard work and perseverance. You may decide that #Ello  is more to your liking, and that's totally fine. Go where your heart takes you, and trust your gut. If it doesn't feel right, don't do it. ___

WHY SHOULD YOU FOLLOW ME?

Well, only YOU can decide if this new network is right for you or not. There are lots of pros and cons, and people in both camps are shouting pretty loudly right now about it. Is it a scam? Maybe. But I think it's too early to tell whether or not the tree will bear fruit...

I've only been on the network for 48 hours, and I've already banked $0.19 from just a few posts and interactions. Now if this was just about spamming and getting others to spam too, I'd be OUT  in a hot minute. And if that turns out to be the case, don't expect me to stay there forever. But while it's new and fresh, and everyone is curious, let's give it a go, and see what happens, alright?

But while it's new and fresh, and everyone is curious, let's give it a go, and see what happens, alright?

Most people say it's like a cross between Facebook and Google+, with a couple elements from Twitter thrown in for good mix. After extensive usage in the first couple days, I will say that the UI is very fast, and refreshes material quickly. However, the Notifications leave much to be desired, as they are not nearly as coordinated as the ones here on G+. Furthermore, there are a lot of areas where they haven't quite caught up with the features we have here, like post formatting, tracking who shared your posts, URL for individual post links, etc...

Nevertheless, I wouldn't be doing my due diligence if I didn't experiment a bit more, to see just where it can possibly go from here. And to make it more interesting, one of the things that always bothered me about following the same people on different networks was the regurgitation of content. So I decided to make it interesting!

When you see my posts over at the new place, they will NOT be anything you've ever seen either here or on my FB or Twitter. I am sharing all fresh content over there, so if you are interested to see what I come up with, feel free to give it a try using my invite link below:

http://www.tsu.co/ShannonAdelson

I look forward to connecting with old friends and new!

"Wealth is the ability to fully experience life."
~Henry David Thoreau



Who doesn't love a little extra cash in their pocket, right? Well, it might only be a few pennies at a time, and it might turn out to be more than that... Only time will tell! 

In the meantime, if you are already a fan of Google+, Facebook, or Twitter, there are definitely some elements here worth exploring. It's far too early to tell if it's going to be better or worse than any of the other available choices. But it seems their overall philosophy lends itself well to artists who hope to benefit from their efforts. Whether you are a content creator, or a curator, perhaps there's a little something for everyone on this platform.

Now, if you are like me you were probably skeptical when you first heard about this, and frankly I can't blame you! Plus, do we really need any more of these social media online playgrounds? However, in all fairness, I encourage you to decide for yourself if you like what you see there. Please don't take my word for it. Do your own research, and then go with your gut. Like anything else, it probably isn't for everyone, and there are already folks voicing their opinions pretty loudly both for and against. Need a helping hand getting through all the mumbo jumbo? Check out these resources below, which should help clarify a few key points about what it is and how it works:

Well, it's not far down to paradise, at least it's not for me
And if the wind is right you can sail away and find tranquility
Oh, the canvas can do miracles, just you wait and see
Believe me

It's not far to never-never land, no reason to pretend
And if the wind is right you can find the joy of innocence again
Oh, the canvas can do miracles, just you wait and see
Believe me

Won't you believe me?

Well it's not far back to sanity, at least it's not for me
And if the wind is right you can sail away and find serenity

"Growth is a spiral process, doubling back on itself, reassessing and regrouping."
~Julia Margaret Cameron




I've often found it unusual the way Autumn leaves tend to change shape as they curl up and fall off the trees. Sometimes the stems even make these weird little spiral patterns. While walking through the meadow the other day, I found just such an example, and figured it would be perfect for today's #MacroMonday  mini-theme: spirals. +Sandra Parlow +Jeff Moreau here's my submission for this week.

#fivedayblackandwhitechallenge  
Day 4 of 5


Here's another shot from our travels around the Harvard University campus. Can you believe they have these cool outdoor ping pong tables around the quad? I wish we had fun spots to hang out like this back when I was in college...


If you are following the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge , then you already know that +Julian Ortiz is the reason I am playing this round. Each day for five days we are asked to post a new shot in B&W. It can be a newly processed recent one, or something from the archives converted to monochrome. Whatever you decide to share, pick the ones you like best, and then invite some more folks to join the party. To see all the wonderful shooters I invited to play along, check out yesterday's post.

Day 3 of 5


During our visit to Boston we had the opportunity to walk through the Harvard campus, which due to the time of year was far less populated than usual. This gave us great flexibility to wander around and see a bunch of buildings that might normally be full of students and staff. Since I wasn't anywhere near the top of my class in school, this is about as close to Harvard as I'm ever gonna get...


+Julian Ortiz was gracious enough to invite me to participate in this #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge , and here are the five folks I've invited to play along too:

#fivedayblackandwhitechallenge Day 2 of 5

While visiting Boston earlier this year, we had the pleasure of going on a whale watching tour. I still haven't had a chance to edit all of the aquatic splashing we witnessed as those magnificent mammals played around in the ocean. But here is a quick shot from the boat as we were leaving the harbor, looking back at the city.

How do you like your HDR?



Earlier today I was watching Jack Davis on +CreativeLive talking about high dynamic range photography. I found the first few segments (about mobile capture and editing apps) quite enlightening. Then he went on to discuss creating HDR using your DSLR. So I took a brief drive in the country near my house this afternoon, and attempted to get some shots of the Autumn colors. However, this process is a lot harder than it looks. I wasn't really happy with most of the (SOOC) images from my Nikon D90, so I played around in both Lightroom and Photoshop, trying to get something that looked closer to what I saw while browsing from the car. Unfortunately, this still doesn't truly reflect what I witnessed; but as I said, getting an artistic (yet still believable) result is still kind of a mystery to me, so hopefully tomorrow I'll get some more tips and... more »

I haven't really experimented with this genre all that much in the past, but this class kind of made me want to check it out again. Anyway, I attached the poll, as I'm curious how many of you lean toward one style or the other? Personally, at least for the ones I've seen from other shooters far better than me, I appreciate a fine line between the magic of the illustrative look and the zen of staying true to the essence of the scene in the photo. I'm not sure if that makes any sense, but that's my two cents on HDR.


What do YOU think?

BOSTON in BLACK and WHITE

My friend +Julian Ortiz invited me to join the monochrome madness once again, so I welcome the opportunity to participate for a second round of the #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge . Since I remember Julian saying that he likes the city of Boston, I decided to go through my album from there, and see what I can come up with.... So here is the first of five shots I'll present in black and white from that city.

While I'm not a local #BostonPhotographer , I do travel up that way a couple times a year. That doesn't by any means make me one of the #CityExperts , but I thought I'd share anyway in case the +Google Local Boston peeps recognize where I was hanging out. (I'll give you a hint: it was on a street corner in front of an Italian restaurant.)

If I remember the rules correctly, each day I am supposed to nominate a new player to jump on board this colorless caravan, but last time I kind of screwed that up a bit. So I guess maybe I'll ask them all at once, just so I don't accidentally forget later. Over the coming days, here are the five photographers I'd like to invite to share this journey with us:

PASSION: Do What You Love, Love What You Do

I have a lot of respect and admiration for the creations by photographer +Jessica Lark. I've been following her work for a few years now, and watching her style develop has been a remarkable experience. While I don't personally shoot Boudoir or Weddings, I can certainly appreciate the artistic finesse she brings to her portraits. One of these days I hope to actually meet her in person, since her studio is only a couple hours from me here in Pennsylvania.

Anyway, I heard she is doing a workshop in upstate New York, and while it's a little too far away for me in the middle of the week, I thought I'd pass along the information, in case any of you out there wish to see what it's all about.

The attached video shows some wonderful behind-the-scenes activity, which illustrates a little bit about how she works with her clients to get those fairy tale magical images.

Below is the link to her FB event, where you can get more information, and the specific details including location and pricing:

PLEASE NOTE: Although the attached video is incredibly tastefully done, it does contain a few NSFW images, so maybe watch it when the little kiddos are out of the room, m'kay? It's just under 15 minutes, and the last section seems like a cross between a sales presentation and a portfolio gallery slideshow. However, I believe together the entire production gives a wonderful glimpse into life both behind and in front of her lens. Enjoy!

What will our next generation be driving?

I live in suburban Pennsylvania, so I can tell you this is definitely not something we see every day around here. But while I was out shooting yesterday, I came across this gorgeous vehicle (plugged in and charging), and wondered if this will become more and more common as the technology gradually becomes more affordable.

So it's also a convenient opportunity to take this new polling feature out for a spin too! If cost were not a factor, could you see yourself switching from gas guzzlers to voltage vehicles? Regardless of which way you decide, the #Tesla  is still pretty to look at, right?

VANITY PLATES: Yay or Nay?

If you can advertise your business in 7 letters or less, I guess there are certain circumstances where you might want to do so. I mean, if you have a memorable name, or a catchy tag line, adding those elements to your vehicle can sometimes enhance your visual marketing efforts. But for many of us who simply use our cars to get from point A to point B, do we really need special plates? I've seen some cool ones on the road, but would love to hear about your experiences too.

"If you could have any Vanity Plate on your automobile, what would it be?"

"If you already have vanity plates on your vehicle, what do they say and why?"

"What are some of the funniest or most memorable license plates you've seen in your travels?"

"STOP STARING AT MY ASS..."

"That's right, if you want to watch me shake my tail feathers, buy a ticket just like everyone else!"

While wandering through the grounds at the Vizcaya mansion and gardens in Miami (FL) last week, we happened upon this arrogant water bird explaining the rules of his #seagullbutt  performance. Apparently not just anyone can show up uninvited and stare, even if it was on a #SeagullButtSaturday  afternoon...

So we went back inside and asked the security guard where to obtain the special permissions, and he said we'd have to drive all the way back to Boca and speak with the Pelicans who reign over this region of aquatic adventure. We tried to bribe our way in, but the avian aristocrats kept looking down on us. I did my best to sneak a quick shot anyway with the zoom lens, but the museum curators didn'tb... more »

We tried to bribe our way in, but the avian aristocrats kept looking down on us. I did my best to sneak a quick shot anyway with the zoom lens, but the museum curators didn't believe me when I said there was no theme called #SeagullButtSaturday . Alas, I promised that nobody actually looks at these #SeagullButtShots , since this platform is really a ghost town and we photographers expect to be the only ones looking at our own captures. But, in case you too are a fan of these fine feathered friends, then here is a list of curators #SeagullButt  aficionados that might also appreciate the risks I had to take to get this shot.

+Robin Griggs Wood +Sassi Sassmannshausen +Christin McLeod +Ursula Klepper +Lauri Novak +Richard Ball +Craig Szymanski +Melissa Beagle +Ellie Kennard +Cora Triton +Steve Savoie +Pam Wolfe +Jon Cassill +Tom McGowan +Annie Irving +Diana Boyd +Debby Moran +Alex Lapidus +Lou McCorkle +Rob Lopes +Kim Smith +Bette Kauffman +Jacqueline Hodsdon +Darion Jackman +Steven Kennard +Sharon Stone +Dawn Siadatan +Sumit Sen +Jasbir S.

For anyone that is still unclear, the people listed above are NOT part of any secret society of #Gulluminati , and couldn't be even if they wanted to because this is #notatheme  despite what you may have heard. If you wish to see more images like these, you know the drill, keep it on the down low, so we don't attract the attention of the Pelican Police...___

B&W Challenge: Day 5 of 5
Gringott's Bank, Diagon Alley, Universal Studios (Orlando, FL)

Good Afternoon, Plus Peeps! So sorry for the delay in finishing this #fivedayblackandwhitechallenge . The weather was quite unkind during our Florida vacation, and much of what we planned to see was rained out. However, we did make it to a couple of tourist attractions that were on our list. My wife really wanted to see the Harry Potter stuff, so we did both Universal Studios and Islands of Adventure. As you can see from the sky in the background, the weather was cloudy and grey, with rain falling on and off throughout our day. But I have to say, it was still worth it to see all the movie madness up close. The animatronics are so realistic, and the 3D and 4D rides were even more thrilling than described. I don't do rollercoasters, but my wife rode them ALL (some more than once) and... more »

The little kid in me is pleased that we got to play in a fantasy land, even if only for an afternoon...

CUSTOMER SATISFACTION SURVEY

My wife and I went to an event in New Jersey a few weeks ago, and as we were checking out we noticed this sign on the back of the hotel room door. I immediately chuckled, wondering how many people found it as humorous as we did. I think this playful approach was rather clever, and we ended up telling them so. As it turns out, their staff was fantastic, and we only had good things to report about our stay there. Maybe there are still a few places left that actually care about customer service...

CLASSIC CAR SHOW

Let me first say that I know almost nothing about vehicle photography. There was an auto show yesterday at the local winery, and my wife and I stopped by to check it out. I took the camera with me in hopes of maybe seeing some cool antiques or something. Since I'm unfamiliar with this niche, there were quite a few models I didn't recognize. However, the car owners were all pretty cool, and shared some historical details about each one. You can't look at all those curves and tell me that cars back then weren't sexy, right? And look at how the clouds are reflected on that shiny finish... Ahhh!

I've been following his work for some time, and love the amazingly colorful imagery he creates in a variety of categories. So I can't help but wonder what incredible monochrome magic he will bring to this game...
