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+

Gailen Mapes64,243Hand Picked Photographers Circles -Nikon Camera  J-K - 17 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 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 +2014-05-17 11:03:0698437CC G+

Peter From71,921The NEW Pixativity Pro/Amateur Photographer's Circle | APRIL 2014 | READ THE WHOLE POST BEFORE ASKING FOR INCLUSIONThe first PAC (March 2014) was a great success and I want to thank everybody who participated in it! Like my old APC Circles, this new April PAC is full of great photographers! I have checked EVERY SINGLE ONE of them and guarantee that your feed will flood from quality images when you add this circle.How To Qualify To Future PAC CirclesIf you're a professional or an amateur photographer mainly sharing your own original work in your feed, then you're eligible to ask for inclusion in the May PAC.The difference between this circle and the old APC is that I now will be giving away FREE accounts to the Pixativity Photographer's Directory every time I share this circle. I will pick three photographer's from the circle and add them to the directory while I compile the circle (you will be notified). (For those of you not remembering the _APC, it's one of my most shared and popular circles since I started here on Google+ a couple of years ago. Many participants have received thousands of new followers and some of the people I helped promote in the APC now boast more followers than I do! I love that! It speaks for the positiveness and quality of this circle. The PAC will be of the same high quality!_The GuidelinesYes, there are rules and guidelines. :) If you want to participate in the PAC you need to do the following:1) Plus and comment this post to show that you want to participate (you must do that here on the original post). Please state what kind of photography you're into in your comment. You also may tag friends of yours to help promote them as well. I'll add them too if they meet these guidelines. Tagging friends increases your chances of being added.2) Reshare this post to help promote your fellow G-plussers. That way YOU will receive more attention once the circle is released. If you do not reshare, I probably won't add you to the circle since this is a joint effort to promote good photographers. YOU deserve to be reshared, right? So does your fellow G-plussers.The post must be reshared in your personal feed and publicly.Pages will NOT be accepted into the circle.3) Please do NOT add external or internal links to albums, websites, blogs etc. in the comments. This post is neither the right place for advertisement nor for spam. Thanks.I will check your feed anyway, be sure of that. :)4) Premium Members of the Pixativity Photographer's Directory website are automatically included in the circle. Still members should reshare this post and  let me know that you did so in the comments.(How to obtain a Premium account to the PPD can be found here: http://maps.pixativity.com/join/).Please NoteIf I do NOT add you to the circle there's always a reason for that. 1) You do not mainly share your own original work in your feed, 2) You are a web marketeer, SEO-specialist etc. or 3) I did not like the mix of your feed (yeah, I know, it's a very subjective thing to create circles like this) or 4) I just missed your comment of some reason – mistakes happen, I am only human.Another thing: I cannot add everybody in one circle but be assured that I check ALL feeds and you are welcome to ask for inclusion in the next edition of the PAC.Release DateThe next circle will be released in May. Keep an eye open for the up-coming Announcement Post.Now, let's make this April PAC another success story2014-04-07 16:11:45488208200239CC G+
Jörg Müller5,850Railfan Circle #04/14This is my updated handpicked #railcircle  of active friends of railroad from around the world with contributions within the last two month. Again a lot of new and interesting people and pages have been added, others deleted due to missing rail related contributions.The photographers and pages in this circle have more than just one or two, usually several posts with rail content in recent weeks in their public stream. Because I'm at the circle limit, I weed out less active rail fans to add more active. Check the circle, there are a lot of new pages & profiles.If you want to have more follower with rail content, add this circle to your circles. A lot of them will add you back. You will get more interesting posts in your stream. If you think you have been missed in my hand picked collection, tag a comment in the original post and I will check out your profile. I share the circle monthly. Add, share and enjoy! / Eisenbahnfankreis #04-14Dies ist mein aktualisierter handverlesener Kreis der aktiven G+ User von Beiträgen zum System Schiene aus der ganzen Welt innerhalb der letzten beiden Monate hier auf G+. Es sind wieder viele neue und interessante Leute und Seiten hinzugefügt worden, weniger aktive sind rausgefallen. Die Profile und Seiten in diesem Kreis haben zumeist mehr als nur ein oder zwei, in der Regel mehrere Beiträge mit Bahninhalten in den letzten Wochen in ihrem öffentlichen Stream.  Weil ich inzwischen am Kreislimit bin, habe ich weniger aktive Railfans aussortiert, um Platz für neue aktive zu bekommen. Es sind zahlreiche neue Seiten und Profile aufgenommen worden. Wenn Du mehr Follower mit Bahn-Inhalt haben möchtest, füge diesen Kreis zu Deinem Profil hinzu - ein Großteil davon wird Dich zurückkreisen. Wenn Du glaubst, ich sollte Dein Profil in den Kreis mit aufnehmen, hinterlasse ein Kommentar, dass ich mir Dein Profil anschauen kann. Ich teile den Kreis einmal im Monat (meist zum Monatsende). Add, share and enjoy! #railcircle   #eisenbahnfankreis2014-04-01 20:48:1750025950CC G+

Peter From70,570Time to share The NEW Pixativity Pro/Amateur Photographer's CircleNow that we have launched the Pixativity Photographer's Directory, it's time to share the BRAND NEW Pixativity Pro/Amateur Photographer's Circle. This, at the same time, means that I have decided to six feet the old APC. ALL old circles are no more and I have trashed them from my circles.It was a delight to put this circle together and I have found lots of great photographers.

Jörg Müller5,442Railfan Circle #03/14This is my updated handpicked #railcircle  of active friends of railroad from around the world with contributions within the last two month. A lot of new and interesting people and pages have been added, others deleted due to missing rail related contributions.The photographers and pages in this circle have more than just one or two, usually several posts with rail content in recent weeks in their public stream. Because I'm at the circle limit, I will weed out less active rail fans to add more active.If you want to have more follower with rail content, add this circle to your circles. A lot of them will add you back. You will get more interesting posts in your stream. If you think you have been missed in my hand picked collection, tag a comment in the original post and I will check out your profile. I share the circle monthly. Add, share and enjoy! / Eisenbahnfankreis #03-14Dies ist mein aktualisierter handverlesener Kreis der aktiven G+ User von Beiträgen zum System Schiene aus der ganzen Welt innerhalb der letzten beiden Monate hier auf G+. Es sind wieder viele neue und interessante Leute und Seiten hinzugefügt worden, weniger aktive sind rausgefallen. Die Profile und Seiten in diesem Kreis haben zumeist mehr als nur ein oder zwei, in der Regel mehrere Beiträge mit Bahninhalten in den letzten Wochen in ihrem öffentlichen Stream.  Weil ich inzwischen am Kreislimit bin, werde ich weiter weniger aktive Railfans auszusortieren um Platz für neue aktive zu bekommen.Wenn Du mehr Follower mit Bahn-Inhalt haben möchtest, füge diesen Kreis zu Deinem Profil hinzu - ein Großteil davon wird Dich zurückkreisen. Wenn Du glaubst, ich sollte Dein Profil in den Kreis mit aufnehmen, hinterlasse ein Kommentar, dass ich mir Dein Profil anschauen kann.

Time to share The NEW Pixativity Pro/Amateur Photographer's Circle

Now that we have launched the Pixativity Photographer's Directory, it's time to share the BRAND NEW Pixativity Pro/Amateur Photographer's Circle. This, at the same time, means that I have decided to six feet the old APC. ALL old circles are no more and I have trashed them from my circles.

It was a delight to put this circle together and I have found lots of great photographers. You won't be disappointed. :)

How To Qualify

If you're a professional or an amateur photographer mainly sharing your own original work in your feed, then you're eligible to ask for inclusion in the new PAC.

Forgot to enable the re-sharing so I start all over again. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I promote new talent in my Upcoming Stars Circle and now it's time to promote good amateur photographers again, no matter how many (or few) followers they have. So if you consider yourself an amateur photographer, then this circle is for you (and your friends here on Google+).

I am sorry that it took a week longer than planned for me to get my act together and share this circle but I was ill for a couple of weeks and compiling a circle such as the USC is not done in five minutes... :)

So, make sure that you Plus this post, Reshare the circle and tell me a few nice things in the comments before you add it to your own circles.

A few remarks...

If I did not add you to the circle there's always a reason for that. 1) You do not mainly share images in your feed, 2) You are a web marketeer, SEO-specialist etc. or 3) I did not like the mix of your feed.

Another thing: I cannot add everybody in one circle but be assured... more »

Railfan Circle #12
Happy New Year to all railfans worldwide :-)

This is my updated handpicked #railcircle  of active friends of railroad from around the world with contributions within the last half year. Again a lot of new and interesting people and pages have been added.
The photographers and pages in this circle have more than just one or two, usually several posts with railway content in recent weeks in their public stream. Because I'm in the meantime near the circle limit, I will probably soon begin to weed out less active rail fans.

If you want to have more follower with rail content, add this circle to your circles. A lot of them will add you back. You will get more interesting posts in your stream. 

If you think you have been missed in my hand picked collection, tag a comment in the original post and I will check out your profile. I share theci... more »

The UPCOMING STARS 2014 SPECIAL Circle –– Announcement Post

READ THE WHOLE POST BEFORE YOU ASK FOR INCLUSION AND MAKE SURE THAT YOU FOLLOW THE GUIDELINES!

The last USC was a great success for everybody involved and many of you have contacted me to share your joy and gratitude. Thank you!
Now it's time to build the next Upcoming Stars Circle and this one will be a very special one, believe me. Just read on...

As I stated in the last announcement post, I find such talent here on Google+ every day but they hardly ever get the attention they deserve –– far from it actually. That is why I came up with the Upcoming Stars Circle two years ago –– to promote young and old talent and at the same time present you all with some great feeds.

For those of you not remembering the USC, it's one of the most shared andpopular cir... more »

The AMATEUR PHOTOGRAPHER'S CIRCLE Is Back –– Announcement Post –– READ THE WHOLE POST BEFORE ASKING FOR INCLUSION

Last week I promoted new talent in my Upcoming Stars Circle and now it's time to promote good amateur photographers no matter how many (or few) followers they have. So if you consider yourself an amateur photographer, then this circle is for you (and your friends here on Google+).

For those of you not remembering the APC, it's one of my most shared and popular circles since I started here on Google+ a couple of years ago. Many participants have received thousands of new followers and some of the people I helped promote in the APC now boast more followers than I do! I love that! It speaks for the positiveness and quality of this circle.

Now it's your turn to join the action. But only if you are an amateurphotogr... more »
