Marlo Angelo Tito0Andrey (AstouNDing Rig of thE noteworthY )Themed Circle: I delayed the share of TV/Music/Movie circle because I think i need more people in it. So people, if you post stuffs like Music, TV and Movies (SciFi, etc.), just tell me in the comments if you want to be included in the TV/Music/Movie circle. Motivation/Inspiration is still also open!Anyways, this is circle Andrey and it's supposed to be named as Andrej but I cant find any amazing words that has j in it! (lol) Well, they're still pronounced the same though so better use the 'y' instead. ;-DWell this circle is filled with normal folks here in G+. And yes, that is your definition of normal :-). Since this is not a themed circle or whatsoever, this circle has a pretty great mix as it shows a great diversity among the people. As I am done introducing these folks to you, you're gonna have to add them to know more! :-D SongS for the Week! The Killers- BootsTalain Rayne- 16 [HD]Have a nice day, everyone! :-DAnd God Bless :-) #Circle   #circleshare   #circlesharing   #circleoftheday   #shared   #sharedcircles   #sharedpubliccircles   #sharedcircleoftheday   #sharingcircles   #sharingiscaring   #add   #addmetoyourcircles   #justanaverageteenagerwhoexpresseshisopinionsovertheinternetcircle  2014-04-20 16:00:2232510387125CC G+

Marlo Angelo Tito79,083Mi First Themed Circle: Arts and Photography_(also known as Ara - ARts & photogrAphy)So there you have it, people. Well this circle is filled with people who have such great interest in Arts and/or Photography. Well not all people in here are Photographers nor Artists but they engage much of these topics. Please note that themed circles are less frequent and there other categories to share. So this "Arts and Photography" themed circle is not really frequent. Have a nice day and God bless! #Circle   #circleshare   #circleshare   #circleoftheday   #shared   #sharedcircles   #sharedpubliccircles   #sharedcircleoftheday   #sharing   #sharingiscaring   #sharingeconomy   #themedcircles   #photography   #Art  2014-02-25 12:35:3465464561CC G+

Jason Levy24,173This is my SURPRISE WELCOME CIRCLE 7 - RAIN EDITIONI'm sharing with you my SURPRISE WELCOME CIRCLE 7 - RAIN EDITIONThis circle contains people who are new to my circles. I'm still playing catch up with my welcome circles, so many of the people in this circle have already engaged with me in some way, and some are already in #teamelite . They are all great people, and without a doubt, if you add them, you will have an even better Google plus experience as they plus, share and comment on your own posts.To help them, and to help you grow your followers I am sharing them here. If you add this circle, many of the people in the circle will add you back, growing your followers and multiplying your Google Plus enjoyment.To get to the next level and have a chance to become a Team Elite Engager (and this also applies to people who aren't in this circle), there are four simple steps:1. Add me to your circles.2. +1 this post.3. Share this post.4. Optionally, comment to let me know what you have done!

Also, share my current #teamelite circle at https://plus.google.com/+JasonLevy/posts/huoZu9hMsGL (this circle is currently on 417 shares, so just think of how much your circles will grow if you get into #teamelite !)You can also add both circles, but BE WARNED!

Monte Vista Wildlife Refuge/Blanca Peak - Colorado

Another from a few weeks back, shooting the Sandhill Crane migration through Colorado in the San Louis Valley.  Out for the evening flying of the cranes from the surrounding grain fields back to their nightly roost in the wetlands.   The clouds shrouding Blanca Peak provide the backdrop.

Monte Vista Wildlife Refuge - Colorado

A few weeks back, went to check out the Sandhill Crane migration through Colorado in the San Louis Valley.  Out for the evening flying of the cranes from the surrounding grain fields back to their nightly roost in the wetlands, I was able to catch this scene as it passed the full moon.

Double RL Ranch / Dallas Divide - San Juan Mountains - Colorado

This past fall, driving over Dallas Divide.  Morning view, looking over the highway just below, out of frame, towards the Sneffels range.  Ralph's cattle gathered near the gate.  Nice lines created by the fencing, I couldn’t resist jumping out of car, climbing up the embankment a grabbing this shot.  I wish the sky had a little more interest in it – I'll just have to check the view in the future whenever I pass this point along the highway between Ridgway and Telluride.

Blanca Peak and the Sierra Blanca Massif - Colorado

This image is best viewed large.
I visited Monte Vista area over the weekend to see the Sandhill Cranes that are migrating through the San Luis valley.  On Saturday evening, as the birds were beginning to take flight from the local fields where the feed for day to the wetlands where they roost for the night, the sunset began to take on a beautiful color on the clouds and mountains to the east.  We shifted our attentions to the mountain landscape, and caught some of the Sandhill Cranes as they crossed the scene.

At 14,345 feet (4,372 m) Blanca Peak is the highest peak of the Sierra Blanca Massif at the southern end of the Sangre de Cristo Range, located in Colorado. It is the fourth highest peak of the Rocky Mountains, and the eighth highest peak in the contiguous United States.

Ranch Land East of Ridgway - San Juan Mountains - Colorado

On the way up Owl Creek Pass Rd, heading towards Silverjack Reservoir.  The hay bales still out in the pasture.  This must be some of the most scenic ranch land in Colorado.  Mt. Sneffels shrouded in clouds in the distance..

Multi-Colored Stand of Aspen, Near Silverjack Reservoir - Colorado

For those familiar with the area, this is along the road that goes past Silverjack Reservoir.  There is this field where there is a turnoff for the Silverjack Reservoir overlook to one side of the road, and a smaller road that goes off on the other side, up towards Rowdy Lake.  Looking across the field, there was this beautiful stand of aspens, with streaks running across showing all stages of their fall colors.

Pinnacles Between East and Middle Forks of Cimarron River – Near Silverjack Res., Colorado

View large for best impact.

Another shot from this past fall - same gorgeous day as my three previous posts.  And there are more to come from that same day. 

Of interesting note, two days after this shot was taken, the foliage on this glorious group of aspen trees were mostly black and dark rust brown, due to an overnight freeze.

Single frame processed in Lightroom 5.  Minor exposure and contrast increase, a little reduction of blue luminance combined with a little increase of saturation of blue only, to increase separation of the sky.

Pinnacles Between East and Middle Forks of Cimarron River – Colorado

Another shot from this past fall - same day as my two previous posts.  This is along the road that goes past Siliverjack Reservoir. 

Single frame processed in Lightroom 5 two different ways - one for grass, the other for remainder of image.  The two versions were masked and blended together in Photoshop.

Rowdy Lake 1 - Colorado

Finally getting back to working through my images from this past autumn.  On my second day of basing out of the Ridgway, Colorado area, I decided to go up over Owl Creek Pass and work the Cimmaron/Silverjack Reservoir area.  This end up being the best day, foliage color-wise, of the trip.  I started the morning by driving up the dirt side-road to Rowdy Lake.  Here's the first image I've got from there that day.

Two images from a bracketed set, processed in Lightroom 5, and then manually blending in the rock face for better exposure in Photoshop.

After going over Red Mountain Pass out of Ouray, I went exploring up San Juan Cnty Rd 7, off of the Million Dollar Highway.  I saw a waterfall up the side of the hill that I climbed to check out, and on my way back down to the car the red streaks on the hillside down-valley caught my attention.  This is looking back towards the town of Silverton, Colorado

Foliage Status Update - 10/8/2013

Taking the long scenic route back home from the San Juans, I ended up staying the night in Carbondale.  I started the morning heading up Capitol Creek Rd to check out how things were doing looking towards Capitol Peak.  Colors are still holding on fairly well, although they have been dulled by the long/late season and the cold.  The image in this post was taken from Capitol Creek Trailhead parking area.  Typically, this is more of an evening shot, but the light raking across the little hills below the peaks provided character in the shadows and gave the foliage some nice side light.  As can be seen in the image, the right side of the valley has quite a bit of bare trees, so I didn't bother driving up to the higher vantage point at the end of the road as the bare trees would dominate the image more.

Driving out of Capitol Creek, I tookthe ... more »

Foliage Status Update - 10/7/2013
  
Peak color in the San Juans has pretty much passed.  There is still color to be found, but very little of the brilliant yellow.  Lots of trees with black leaves, or heavily spotted and thus dulling their color.

On Sunday I explored Wilson Mesa and the 4WD route of Last Dollar Rd.  These areas are doing much better than Silver Jack apparently having not been hit with as hard of a freeze.  However, colors are muted.  Surprisingly, there is still A LOT of green trees.  But they just don't seem to want to transition into brilliant yellow, and more typically are going from green to burnt orange to brown.  If back or side lit, these still produce nice color, but you have to search out the compositions.

So, not entirely pleased with how things were developing in the San Juans, I decided to leave the area two days early.  Formy return... more »

Foliage Status Update - 10/5/13

This yesterday (Saturday) morning I started sunrise out on County Rd 5 out of Ridgway for a panoramic view of the Sneffels range.  Still, not much yellow has developed.  Lots of green still, but browning out is occurring and a few beginning to go bare.  It is hard to tell how this area is going to develop.


While the area didn't get any additional snow last night, as I had hoped, we did get a hard freeze.  After morning on CR 5 I went back up to the Silver Jack Reservoir area, and the effect of the freeze was easily seen.  Many area of blacked leaves.  Some in the process of turning black are providing a nice rust color to the mix for now, but they wont last long.  While there still is a lot of green on the trees, most of what had been yellow if not now black are well spotted, dulling their brilliance.  I haven't enoughexperie... more »

Foliage Update 10/4

The snow last night left a blanket of 3-5 inches of heavy white frosting.  I went up CR 7 (Dallas Creek Rd) for sunrise and had nice clouds for about a half-hour of shooting, before the clouds thickened and socked in the peaks.  Colors on CR 7 were good, but mixed.  Still some green, but quite a bit of yellow and orange.

Next, I went up to Woods lake.  I'd say that it still has a couple of days to go before it hits peak.  The leaves below the Wilson Peak angle are about a day, maybe two behind the rest.  To images in this post cover Woods Lake.

From there, I scouted other areas without doing much shooting.  Wilsons Mesa looks great.  Very patchy, with all colors.  I'll be going back soon when I think the peak will be out of the clouds.  This area may be good for a week or so - depends on how much goes bare before the other patchesof green ... more »

Foliage Update

Yesterday went over Hwy 550 from Ridgway to Silverton and back.  The Red Mtn Pass/Irontown area was in pretty good shape.   The attached photo was taken looking down on the area of Irontown on down to Crystal Lake.  There was a little green left, but most areas were at peak color.  

Today I was up Owl Creek Pass and the Silver Jack Reservoir area.  The Silver Jack area was great, while the west side of the pass need another day or two to look good, aspen wise.  However, the oak brush is showing excellent oranges and reds.

Weather reports have a storm coming through the San Juans tonight and through tomorrow.  Some have been saying that low temps predicted might freeze the leaves and blacken them.  Also, as I type this there are fairly high winds hitting Ridgway, which potentially could strip leaves off the trees.  So who knows.  We might get agreat lay... more »

Colorado Fall

My favorite season of the year is quickly approaching.  I'll have to start plotting out my fall adventures soon.  So excited.

This image taken a little down-valley from the Maroon Bells, near Aspen, Colorado.  Looking up the valley that leads towards Crested Butte.

Mystic Falls II
Taken last fall.  Same trip as a prior post of the falls http://goo.gl/a12Lo .  Tucked away in a very narrow canyon, a double falls, estimated to be about 180 feet ( 55m) high.  Located near Ophir, Colorado.

Photo Processing: Five bracketed frames merged in Nik HDR Effects.  Results of HDR process was then exported to Photoshop along with the original mid-exposure from the bracketed set.  Original layered on top, and transparency reduced to about 60%.

Coming down Last Dollar Road, heading into Telluride.

Photo Processing: From a five image bracketed set processed in Nik HDR Efex Pro, using one of its more natural appearing pre-sets.  The original, middle exposed image along with the HDR processed image were sent off to Photoshop CS6 as individual layers.  The HDR layer was placed above the standard, and blended using the luminosity mode and set at about 75% opacity..

New Style Cover Photos - Top Banner Photo

Interesting new photo banners/cover photos at the top of our profiles.  I think I like them, but it takes just the right photo to make them work well.  

Max dimensions are 2120x1192 pixels (16:9 ratio).  If you create something with those dimensions in Lightroom, make sure you find something that looks good with the top third cropped out, as that is the default display when someone first comes to your profile.  Users see the rest of the photo when they click on it, or scroll up.   For my current photo, I've cropped it so that the full mountain was below the one-third line in Lightroom.  Full photo, though, isn't that great with that much pure blue sky showing.  If I had a good set of clouds up there it would have worked out better, I think.

When I've got the time, I'll have to go through my stuffand se... more »

Above Telluride, Colorado

Coming down Last Dollar Road into Telluride, I came across this scene not too far from their airport.  I believe this is looking over Mountain Village, above Telluride, towards Silver Mountain and the Gold Hill Chutes.  

Photo Processing: From a five image bracketed set processed in Nik HDR Efex Pro, using one of its more natural appearing pre-sets.  The original, middle exposed image along with the HDR processed image were sent off to Photoshop CS6 as individual layers.  The HDR layer was placed above the standard, and blended using the luminosity mode and set at about 62% opacity.  This way, the colors and saturation came from the original image, but was able to pull up the detail that was lost in the shadows.  Brought back into Lightroom where a gradient adjustment was added to warm the grass in the foreground a bit, and adjustment brush usedon th... more »

Crystal Mill, Colorado

I went back and reprocessed an image that I originally posted when I first joined G+, and thought I'd share the new version with you.  Taken back in 2010 from a favorite place of mine to visit in Colorado.

Photo Processing: The original of this is from a five shot panorama, each shot bracketed in three exposures.  First, each of the three-bracket sets was processed in Nik HDR Efex Pro, using one of its more natural appearing pre-sets.  Those five HDR tiffs were brought back into Lightroom.  Then, in Lightroom I adjusted and synched the five original images of the panorama set that were taken at the middle exposure to get the best non-HDR image I could.  These five images, along with the five HDR processed images were sent off to Photoshop CS6 for stitching together into two aligned panoramas, one HDR and the other a standard exposed images. The... more »

High Mesa Above Silver Jack

From this past fall,  while driving over Owl Creek Pass in the San Juan Mountains.  Shot from a distance away using a longer lens.

Single frame capture processed in Adobe Lightroom.  Processed twice, once for the majority of the image and separately for the rock face, which was processed to increase contrast and saturation to bring out more detail of the cliff.  Both versions were exported to Photoshop as layers, and the rock cliff was masked and merged into the original version.

Indian Peaks Wilderness - Lake Isabelle  II

Another one from a visit I took to Lake Isabelle last sumer.  Lake Isabelle is located in the Brainard Lake Recreation Area, north of Nederland, Colorado.  It is a fairly easy hike into the Indian Peaks Wilderness, and up to Lake Isabelle at 10,868ft (3312m) altitude.  

Image captured along the northern side of the lake, looking west towards Shoshoni and Apache peaks.  Base photo is from a five-bracket capture merged in Nik Software's new HDR Efex Pro 2, using its "Natural" preset.  This was opened as a layer in Photoshop along with the normally exposed frame from the bracket set.  The two were blended/masked together, with the rocks in the foreground coming from the HDR frame, and the rest of the scene from the standard frame.

Chimney Rock and The Courthouse

During my visit this past fall, many areas of the San Juan mountains were past peak in terms of foliage color.  However, the west side of Owl Creek Pass seemed to be hitting its peak.  It was a cloudy day with spots of sunshine and blue sky poking through off and on, which made it tough to get even lighting.  

This is a five frame HDR image, using Nik HDR Effects Pro 2 for merging the frames.  Some cloning was done in Photoshop in order to remove a branch that I felt was just a little too obtrusive.

Roaring Fork Cascade - Between Independence Pass and Aspen

The drive out of Aspen up to Independence Pass is one of my favorite fall drives in Colorado.  It follows along the Roaring Fork River up to its headwaters, and tops out at over 12,000 feet as it goes over Independence Pass.  There are many pull-outs along the way to take in the many fall vistas and water cascades along the way.

This is a 5-image bracketed capture processed in Nik Software's HDR Effects Pro.  The HDR processing helped bring out the details that were in deep shadows and tone down the bright highlights that resulted from harsh mid-day sun.

The ranches in the area around Ridgway and Telluride, Colorado, are some with best views.  This is of the Last Dollar Ranch, which can be found, unsurprisingly, along Last Dollar Road.  The ranch sits below the western end of the Sneffels range, in the San Juan Mountains.

Mystic Falls - Near Ophir, Colorado

Back in 1999 I was given a copy of John Fielder's book "Colorado 1870-2000".  In it Fielder publishes photos taken by William Henry Jackson in the late 1800's, paired with an modern day image taken by Fielder from the same location.  One of the pairing was with Mystic Falls, circa 1893  ( http://goo.gl/ns33V ).  A double falls estimated to be about 180 feet ( 55m) high, and in a very narrow canyon.  Seeing those images made we want to visit these falls.  I tracked down the location, but wasn't able to visit until this past autumn.

The images I have do not capture the experience I had visiting this site.  For the roughly two hours that I was there, I had the falls to myself.  The narrow canyon and sound of the water made it easy to shut out the rest of the world.  I will be returning - for both, to try to bettercapture ... more »

Maroon Bells - After the Storm

View large for best effect.

This image is from late September of this year.  The same stormy day that my "Misty Pinnacles" image (http://goo.gl/zNnlx ) was taken.  By this point, the clouds had risen above the peaks and the storm had left a fresh frosting of snow on the mountains.

Single frame processed in Lightroom into two versions - one for the trees and foreground, the other for the mountains and sky.  Both versions were then exported to Photoshop as layers and the two areas were masked separately.  The sky was masked off again and duplicated, and a little more contrast added to provide better definition.  Layers were merged and brought back to Lightroom, where a little bit of a darkened vignette was added.

The Famous Stanley Hotel - Estes Park, Colorado

Another image from +John De Bord's first meetup date this past September.  Again, taken from Lake Estes at sunrise.  Some of the clouds and fog was beginning to clear, when some direct sunlight lit up the hotel.

Using four frames from a five frame bracket set, processed in Photomatix using Fusion Blend.  The result left the yellow aspen at water's edge a little too dim for what I envisioned, so a second processing in Photomatix was done using settings that made the colors pop a little more.  These two images were layered in Photoshop, and on the version that had the brighter yellows I did a color selection of the yellow trees only, and blended into the first version at about 15 to 20 percent opacity.

Misty Morning Pinnacles At Maroon Lake

View large with the black background for best effect.

After standing in the drizzling rain for three hours I finally gave up.  I was down the road from Maroon Lake and a ways up the valley side, waiting for the storm to break to get a shot of the Maroon Bells.  The cold won out and I went back to my car and drove up to the parking area for the Maroon Bells lake.  After another 45 minutes or so, spots of daylight were periodically poking through the clouds, so I decided to walk around the lake.  This image is of the pinnacles that rise to the north of the lake, taken as some of the clouds began to clear.  

The rain did eventually clear out and provided fresh snow on the Bells and some great clouds around the peaks.  I'll post some of those images another time.

Misty Morning Sunrise

Another on Lake Estes, but from a different day than my previous posting.  This comes from this morning's gathering at +John De Bord's fall event. Check it out if you are in the Colorado Front Range.  The G+ event listing at http://goo.gl/pt20z , and full details in +John De Bord's blog, at http://goo.gl/e5Q47 .  While the G+ event only shows a few people confirmed going, there were about 10-12 folks there this morning.  I'm guessing there will be more who will make it Saturday and Sunday.

This image is from a two shot blend, one used to enhance/darken the silhouette portions of the image.  Colors enhanced some in Lightroom, along with sharpening and contrast adjustments.

Elk Walking Across Lake Estes

Last week I went up for a day in Rocky Mountain National Park to check out how the fall foliage was coming along, and to see the elk, who are entering their fall rut.  Taking Hwy 36 brings you through the town of Estes Park.  Coming into town I always scan through a small park on the shore of Lake Estes as I pass by.  It seems that about 80% of the time there are elk there.  This time, I saw two bulls, so I pulled in and started shooting.  Another guy in the park started walking quickly  towards them, and drove them both into the water, where they crossed the lake.  I never realized how shallow this lake was, as they were both able to walk the whole way across.  I estimate that it was never deeper than about five feet.

This is shot of one of the elk in the water.  Single image processed in Lightroom.

For Photographers Interested in Colorado Fall Foliage Updates

If you are interested in shooting Colorado's fall colors, and you are not already aware of this site, you need to check this out.  Darren Kilgore is a photographer based outside of Denver who maintains what I feel is the best single place to track the evolving of the season's colors throughout the state.  He also has created a very good listing of places to go and see while seeking Colorado's brilliant fall foliage.  While his informative page is titled "Fall Color Drives", it is really more oriented to the photographer.

Prickly Pear Cactus

A shot from the vault.  From quite a few years ago, while on a hike near Kenosha Pass in Colorado.  A bee checks it out.

No special processing, this time.  Just a single exposure, adjusted in Lightroom.

Sunflowers near Denver International Airport, Denver Colorado

Out scouting a couple of evenings ago, found this nice field of sunflowers out near the DIA.  The pointed roof of the airport's great hall and the controller's tower are seen along the horizon.  Had hoped for a better sunset, but the storm clouds were heavier than I had hoped for.

Single exposure, adjusted in Lightroom.  The clouds were pretty flat, so I masked separately and used Nik Software's Color Efex Pro to bring out some additional detail.

Nature Decay - Indian Peaks Wilderness, Colorado

Captured along trail in the Indian Peaks Wilderness, while returning from Lake Isabelle.  This is located in the Brainard Lake Recreation Area, north of Nederland, Colorado.  We came across this old decaying tree that showed interesting patterns in its exposed root system.

Image converted to Black and White in Lightroom 4.1.  The monochrome version and the original color were exported as layers into Photoshop, where the dark greens in the background were color selected and brought back into the B&W version, giving the image a subtle hint of color in the background.
