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!

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 +2014-04-02 10:47:471445107CC 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 20:48:17500241049CC G+

Gene Bowker66,344The   #Alphabetcircles  Gene's Active Photographers on G+ circle.Part Five: First Name R-Z (the final set)Meet 490 more ACTIVE G+ photographers with First Names between R and Z.Tomorrow is going to be a busy day at work, so I decided to go ahead and shoot this off tonight.It's that time again, I've been doing Spring Cleaning even though it isn't Spring officially yet here and going through my photography circles again to check out what folks have been sharing and see who is still active on G+.I've visited each of the folks included in this circles within the last week and they have been active in the last month (or so) and regularly post their OWN photography.They come from all over the world and their styles vary as much as their choice of equipment and subject matter.There are a lot of folks in here that I've been friends with for years, but there are also a lot of newer folks who you've probably not met yet and who I am looking forward to getting to know better myself.My Selection Criteria1. Actively posting photos on G+ (usually within 30 days or so)2. We circle each other (sometimes for a long time)3. Primarily post their OWN photography (that's a judgement call on my part)4. "Safe for work" (another judgement call)Why you should follow them?1. Add active photographers to your stream without a lot of inactive accounts.2. Find some new folks to interact with who are ACTIVE on G+As always.. if you do add them.. the best way to do that is to create a new circle and that way you can watch it and decide if they fit with you or notGoogle has recently changed the circle add logic, so you can no longer search a shared circle to determine who is in it and only add people that you don't already share. This makes life harder for all of us.Not in here?1. Maybe we haven't met yet?  If so, I'd love to hear from you and I'll be sure to check out your stream. Be sure to circle me if you haven't as I check those who add me regularly.2. Maybe you don't post public? If not, there is a good chance that you looked inactive to me.3. Maybe you don't post "primarily" photography... once again that is subjective.I love it when you shareIt does take a lot of time to visit and compile the lists. I enjoy doing it but feel free to re-share the circle with your friends. That way they can find some great new photographers too.  You don't have to reshare to remain in the circle, but it is appreciated.If you follow along you can easily add 2000+ photographers to your stream too.Gene Bowker+Rusted Rail Images   Here are the others in the seriesPart One: A-C https://plus.google.com/u/0/111112809838472063992/posts/1KejHoGGhBzPart Two: D-Ghttps://plus.google.com/u/0/111112809838472063992/posts/R9GFFEnR1CmPart Three: H-Khttps://plus.google.com/u/0/111112809838472063992/posts/Beo3nKCJS6oPart Four: L-Qhttps://plus.google.com/u/0/+GeneBowker/posts/J2pQM7ZpBoJ (thanks Randy for catching that)Thanks again to everyone in all of the circles. It's been a lot of fun seeing your work and I look forward to resharing the circles in a few months time. Stay ACTIVE everyone.2014-03-17 00:25:0949113234139CC G+

Margaret Tompkins101,687>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Great Photographers With < 25,000 FollowersThe photographers here are all in my personal circles.  The choices are mine and mine alone.  No one asked, begged, or pleaded to belong.  No bribes were offered or accepted.  These are the people that I follow because I appreciate their great quality photography and their interaction.  Most I have met as I help curate several of the photography themes.  There are NO requirements to share this circle.  I would appreciate the people in this circle plus the post, leave a comment, and share the circle as public.  Each profile has been verified by me.  Most have < 25,000 followers (when they were put into the circle).  They each have high quality original photography content.  You won’t find many animated gifs!  I have included myself in the circle and also the landscape page.  Some are fairly new to G+ so please make them feel welcome!!Landscape Photography:  I invite everyone to check out the +Landscape Photography  #LandsacapePhotography theme.  If you want to impress me, that’s the place to do it!!  Post a great landscape that will get my attention.  See the About tab for all the details.I wasn’t included, what do I do?  If you meet the criteria, weren’t included, but think you should be, then leave me a comment.  Maybe I don’t know about you.  There are millions of people on G+ and I don’t know everyone.  However, I’ll be happy to have a look at your work if you will call it to my attention.  Start posting landscapes that get my attention (see above)!!There’s a really great photographer XXX that you didn’t include.  Please feel free to recommend qualified people but please only one.  I discover new people every day and would be happy to look at their work.  Please make sure that the recommended person meets the criteria.  If they don’t then that tells me a lot about you!A while back, I had a wonderful discussion about circles with +Robin Griggs Wood and +Charles Lupica .  If you don't know them, then let me introduce you to two of the finest people here on G+!    Charles is a master of monochrome!!  Robin is a master of everything and a mentor to all of us!!  Did you know that she speaks seagull!!   I hope that both Robin and Charles will look you all over and give you a share!  There aren't many quality vetted circles shared on G+.  I'm proud to say that this is one of them!!#Circleshare   #Sharedcircles  2014-02-16 03:26:0247725963163CC G+

Magnus Ericson35,090Now it's been awhile since I posted my very first public circle so here's an update. I have named the circle "Artistic People" Most are photographers who continually share their own pictures of good quality.The only thing you need to do to get into, and stay in the circle is to continue to have me in your circles and share your own great photos without a lot of other bling bling, youtube clip, animated gifs and so on in your stream.I've probably forgotten one or more that should have been in the circle, but I'm neither the first nor the last to do so.Hope you like my "Artistic People Circle" and that you pass it along to your own circles. Please leave a comment of what you think.2013-08-12 11:20:3528531927CC G+

Jörg Müller1,755Updated hand picked Railroad Photographers and Page CircleThis is my updated circle of active friends of railroad (and also model train, tramcar, etc.) for last two month. This circle includes persons with some beautiful railroad photographs and active railway information pages I follow from around the world. A lot of new and interesting people and pages have been added, not yet active were removed.The photographers and pages in this circle have more photos, not only but not just one or two rail picture, usually several posts with railway terms in recent weeks in their personal stream.I believe that add of the circle helps to get more interesting posts in your stream.If you think you have been missed in my hand picked collection, tag a comment on these post and I will check your profile out. I will share the circle sometimes new.Add, use, share and enjoy!2013-05-31 21:45:11212634CC G+

Charles Lupica66,743          Top 1000 most followed active        photographers sharing content on G+                  Circle One: J to ZThis  is the second of two circles,  The first was shaerd on 16 May here: https://plus.google.com/u/0/103236949470535942612/posts/FPsHj9E2QEo.  The circles have been divided alphabetically to help give more exposure to people with fewer followers and shared at different times to help keep down the stream saturation. Please plus, comment and share.  This circle has no requirements for future participation but your support and encouragement is appreciated. It has been two weeks since I announced my intent to update my circle of the 500 most followed photographers on G+.  I decided to do things a bit differently this time and so I'll share the top 1000.   To build the circles and the list I enlisted the aid of  +Bill Wood +Gemma Costa +Jen Baptist +Katy Houlne and +Margaret Tompkins   They built circles and vetted profiles.  My starting point for this was a list of 2000 names generously provided to me by +CircleCount. I would to thank each for their help.I have chosen the name of the circle carefully to try to accurately represent the contents of what will be in the two circles. The script / finding namesThe script was provided by CircleCount and looks through the tagline of every profile on CircleCount to find the word "photo" or "foto".  If a photographer doesn't have a CircleCount profile they won't be found.  If one of these two words isn't in their tagline, they won't be found.  A few people I know have fallen into this flaw in my thinking.  To fix this, CircleCount has asked me to provide a "whitelist" of names that the script misses.  The white-list list adds another 30 or so names to the result.   Keyword world a personal viewpointIf you don't use the word photographer to describe yourself how do you expect people to find you in a search. "Searcher of cute pixels", "Creative spirit that makes art out of light"; these might be poetic, they might touch your soul but the world looks for content based on keyword searches.  SEO is going to do the same. Consider carefully the words sou use to describe yourself if you want people to find you using search technology. How was the list processedThe list was sorted by the level of activity.  People that hadn't posted in the last month (approximately April 5 to May 5th) were removed from the list.  This included people that hadn't posted or people that had posted only once in the past 4 weeks.  Again, this has some flaws but I'm mostly happy with the results.  People who are posting only in private communities o2013-05-18 13:17:2050113386127CC G+

Magnus Ericson25,068This is absolutely the first time I create and share a public circle. I have named the circle "Artistic People" Most are photographers who continually share their own pictures of good quality.The only thing you need to do to get into, and stay in the circle is to continue to have me in your circles and share your own great photos without a lot of other bling bling in your stream.I've probably forgotten one or more that should have been in the circle, but I'm neither the first nor the last to do so.Hope you like my first public circle and that you pass it along to your own circles. Please leave a comment of what you think.2013-05-09 17:03:0122533827CC G+

Margaret Tompkins48,891>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Great Photographers With < 10,000 FollowersThe photographers here are all in my personal circles.  The choices are mine and mine alone.  No one asked, begged, or pleaded to belong.  No bribes were offered or accepted.  These are the people that I follow because I appreciate their great quality photography and their interaction.  Most I have met as I help curate several of the photography themes.  There are NO requirements to share this circle.  I would appreciate the people in this circle plus the post, leave a comment, and share the circle as public.  Each profile has been verified by me.  Most have < 10,000 followers (when they were put into the circle).  They each have high quality original photography content.  You won’t find many animated gifs!  I have included myself in the circle and also the landscape page.  Many are fairly new to G+ so please make them feel welcome!!Landscape Photography:  I invite everyone to check out the +Landscape Photography  #LandsacapePhotography theme.  If you want to impress me, that’s the place to do it!!  Post a great landscape that will get my attention.  See the About tab for all the details.I wasn’t included, what do I do?  If you meet the criteria, weren’t included, but think you should be, then leave me a comment.  Maybe I don’t know about you.  There are millions of people on G+ and I don’t know everyone.  However, I’ll be happy to have a look at your work if you will call it to my attention.  Start posting landscapes that get my attention (see above)!!There’s a really great photographer XXX that you didn’t include.  Please feel free to recommend qualified people.  I discover new people every day and would be happy to look at their work.  Please make sure that the recommended person meets the criteria.  If they don’t then that tells me a lot about you!#Circleshare   #Sharedcircles  2013-04-14 22:18:2334135373160CC G+

Jörg Müller1,629Updated hand picked Railroad Photographers and Railway Information Page CircleWe got a lot more follower in this community last time. This is my updated circle of the active friends of railroad (and also model train, tramcar, etc.) in the first three month in 2013 on G+ for March.In this circle are persons with some beautiful railway photographs and active railway information pages I found from around the world. Some persons and pages are removed in comparison to the last shared circle, many new and interesting people and pages have been added.The photographers and pages in this circle have "more photos, less spam", not only but not just one rail picture, usually several posts with railway terms in recent weeks. I believe that add of the circle helps to get more interesting posts in your stream.

Eric Hege3,232Photography StreamI haven't shared some of my circles in a while, so over the next few days I plan on doing this. Today's circle is my main photography stream.

Corey Gibson2,777It's been a while since I shared my photography circle, so if you are wanting your stream bursting with talented folks posting beautiful images, add this!  Anybody who didn't make it in here is because you didn't fit; only 500 can be shared at a time, sorry.   I need to organize my circles better so I can get everyone out there.Pass it on!  2013-03-15 16:22:1250138521CC G+

Madjid Boukri3,503Canadian 'Polar' Circle I  (Polar Circle II next)I started collecting Canadians a few weeks after the start of Google plus. There are now thousands of them and I had to split my Canadian Polar Circle in two because of the 500 Google share limit. Some people or pages here are not very active, many did not even circle me back, but I added all 'Canadians' without any restriction.

The photographers and pages in this circle have "more photos, less spam", not only but not just one rail picture, usually several posts with railway terms in recent weeks. I believe that add of the circle helps to get more interesting posts in your stream.

And why are they photographers to follow?First of all.. this circle contains a bunch of my closest friends on G+. The folks that I spend the most time "with" on here.  There are a bunch of great photographers and just as importantly "good people" here.1) Active : They have posted within the last month. With the holidays a lot of folks have slowed down but these folks are still there. Yes, I visited each stream.2) Original These photographers are sharing mostly  "THEIR OWN WORK" and their stream is mostly photography. 3) Interactive : I try to find folks who are interactive and comment on their own posts and the posts of others.There are some names you will recognize in here for sure but there are also some folks you probably don't know yet. Hopefully you will take some time to check them out and see if they have room in your circles.Any omissions are wholy on me too as no one asked for did anything to be included in here.I hope you'll reshare in your stream!Why?I love it when people take the time to reshare these circles.It allows my friends to be introduced to your friends.. and promotes some great photography on G+.Not in hereThere is no need to ask for inclusion.  I add folks as I come across them,  you can read more about how I select athttps://plus.google.com/111112809838472063992/posts/NeJZXLJ6oQBBe Original.

Coming Or Going?

It's hard to tell sometimes... but this one is going. The extinguished headlights are the giveaway. If you look really closely above the windshield you'll see two lit red lights that indicate the end of the train. This train was pushing on the rear of a very long container train that had an engine on the head end (with people!), an unmanned engine in the middle and this unmanned engine on the rear.

This is the train bridge just on the north edge of Eureka, California. The rail line is defunct so the bridge is sitting idle, clearly tempting the graffiti artists. #bridgesovertuesday

For railfans, this is obviously an ex-Union Pacific Railway engine. It was UP 9027 (originally C&NW 8505) and was retired in early 2008. CN bought it a year ago but hasn't managed to repaint it yet. I'm glad I caught it before it gets the standard CN red and black. I had to chase the train all the way across the city to catch up to it, but it was worth it to me.

"Larger than Life Personality" in your Self-Portraits

The Beginnings
When I first got my dSRL and started taking photos I quickly realized two things:  1. That I had a lot to learn about my camera (my first 10 photos on Manual turned out completely black), and 2.  although I enjoyed shooting almost anything, I really liked photographing portraits.  So at that time I was faced with a dilemma.  How can you shoot portraits, practice and learn  while having no skills?  The answer was Self-Portraiture. 

That’s how I began shooting self-portraits.  It allowed the perfect conditions to practice my skills; learn the characteristics of my camera; analyze and study light and practice my expressions. Successful portraits take patience and require planning.  When having a model or a subject to shoot, time is of the essential.  Also, proving that you masteryour skills... more »

These tracks run right down the middle of a street in Eureka, California. Sadly the trains don't run here any more and likely never will. Someday I'd like to see street running.

This summer I intend to get out and photograph as many grain elevators as I can. They are vanishing. For example, this scene is one that can't be repeated, as these two elevators in Morse, Saskatchewan were demolished in the spring of 2012, less than two years after I took this in August 2010. Don't wait - shoot now.

While following the idle and overgrown California Northern Railroad tracks north from San Francisco, we stumbled across a sign for the Skunk Train tourist railroad in Willits, California. A quick jaunt from highway 101 brought us to this train, snoozing by the station. Apparently there are trains originating from here and from Fort Bragg that travel through some pretty scenic country.

You were bad from the start
Least that's what your mama said
And your father, well, who knows
He never could be understood

So you followed your prophecy
Hanging with that wrong crowd
Not knowing which side of the tracks
You should be standing on

Then it all came to a head
You were the unstoppable force
Slammed into that brick wall
Too much too easy didn't last

So you try to turn your life around
Get your feet back under you
You turn it around 360 degrees
Can't figure why nothing changes

Now you're trying to find the answers
To the questions you can't find
You say you're trapped in your destiny
And nothing will ever change

I know it ain't my business
I know you don't want to hear
But the truth, it isn't out there... more »

I was experimenting with lighting this morning. I have a speedlight flash on my camera but it was creating shadows behind me, so I used natural light from the window to my left and bounced the speedlight off the wall to my right to try to fill in some shadow. There's still a hint of shadow on my left but it's better. I still have a lot to learn about lighting.
