Marco Favero6,459his is my Sparkle Team Elite Engager CircleAs it has been some time since I posted a #teamelite circle, my   #teamelite circles have a fabulous theme this time, so they are named Sparkle and Glitter. You'll notice there are only two of them this time, as I am now making sure everyone has added me before I share them.* #teamelite  members - see nearer the end for instructions for the next stage!  #eliteinnercircle *I have had so many great     #teamelite  engagers that I need two whole circles - why are they     #teamelite  engagers, as opposed to normal engagers? These are the ones who have shared my shared circles - you have close to 1,400 circle sharers here for you to add across these three circles. You should add people in these circles, because they are active engagers and will brighten up your Google Plus experience. I'm not sure you could handle all that Google Plus engagement, so think twice before you do so!My     #teamelite  circles are extensively shared by the top circle sharers on Google Plus, so naturally, membership of     #teamelite  is very exclusive and there is a lot of demand to get in.To get in, and to ensure you stay in     #teamelite  you need to do the following:1. Add me to your circles, if you haven't done so already2. +1 this circle3. Publicly share this circle to public, your circles and extended circles.4. If possible, leave a comment on this circle so I know you have done the three steps above (I say "if possible" as my circle comments more often than not hit the 500 comment limit).BE THE BEST OF THE BEST:To get into my  #eliteinnercircle  you need to share my Sparkle and Glitter #teamelite  circles, as well as my current #eliteinnercircle circle. You can find them here:#sharedcircles #addcircle #sharedpubliccircles #circleshare #publicsharedcircles #circlesharing #publiccircle #findcircles #circlemeup #influencers 2014-04-14 20:59:014999336CC G+

Mark Goodman8,406Introducing the Photographer Inspiration and Engagement circle.This is a collection of photographers I personally find inspiring as well as active and engaging on Google+. My hope is that if you like my work you'll also thoroughly enjoy the posts of those included in this circle.  Who's in the PIE? You knew there'd be a hook right ;)- Mostly Landscape, Cityscape and Architectural photographers.- Share mostly original content.- Photogs that I relate to they way they take a photo, process a photo or that I want to dabble in a similar look to what they achieve.- A few people that have shared me in previous circles with an appreciation for their support.Who's not in the PIE?- A lot of outstanding photographers that may just have a different style or shoot a different genre from my own. You can consider them the ice cream on the side :)- People I haven't discovered even if they might be in my circles and people I may have overlooked. It's a big Google+ ocean but I hope to continue adding people that fit this particular circle in the future. - No spammers or non-photography related streams. If you find that's not the case please send me a message.Please add and reshare the circle so others may enjoy what I think is an extremely high quality circle.Have a great day and enjoy your enhanced content stream!2014-04-06 16:56:5721024719CC G+

Gailen Mapes61,862Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  D-F - 4 of 30Note: These circles are sorted by camera type and last name. They are split to not exceed 200 members.           These circles are photographers that I admire. They have "more photos, less spam."  There have been many additions and a few drops (mostly for spam or inactivity).       Be sure to get all of the circles. Share! If you miss any of the circles they can be found at: +Gailen Mapes and scroll back to April 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting March 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag.I am hard up against the 5000 limit. From here on, I am going to have to become rather more strict about the "spam rules." Essentially if I have to go back more than a screen on your profile before I hit original material, there is a good chance that I may drop you from the circles. Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:   https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday   #sharedcircles   #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +2014-04-04 10:48:191678211CC 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.

Gailen Mapes60,309Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera  D-F - 4 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 March 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting Feburary 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 +2014-03-04 11:24:39162628CC G+

Blurs and Unsharp Photography: Guided Play

With the support of the +G+ Mentorship Program for Photographers , I’ve decided to offer a free eight week program on the art and weird science of unsharp photography.  The official signup post will be next Tuesday, April 29, and the program will run from May 9 through July 5.

To me, blurs and unsharp photography have represented a new dimension of artistic freedom – a fresh and joyous way to play with light, color, form… and sometimes their absence.  My hope is to inspire some of you to find more of that joy in your own photography, and to offer some techniques, tips and tools to help, along with plenty of practice!

We’ll be covering a range of topics, including not just how to take certain kinds of images (and sometimes why), but also tools in post-processing and phone apps.  My goal is to be able to offer theprogram to... more »

The Old Shall Give Way to the New

Last week I got a chance to do something I'd wanted to do in ages.... wander out on to the Severn estuary tidal flats (some of the fastest tides in the world here) and grab a picture of the old Aust ferry terminal.

This used to be the only 'easy / quick' way into South Wales without a several hour detour via Gloucester. Then in 1966 the white behemoth in the background opened and for 30yrs carried all traffic in & out. Now it's role is a minor one as the Second Severn Crossing (effectively behind me) took over as the major artery into and out of Wales.

Feeling purple right now. Apparently one of the 'responses' to the colour purple is that of ending. Well tonight is my last ever night shift. So that's an ending I guess.

Ma & Da

This is one of the images that adorns my study wall looks down over me whenever I am on the computer.

As the title says, it is my Mum & Dad on their wedding day in (I think) 1959. They were both qualified pharmacists and met each other whilst on summer jobs in Boots the Chemist.

When Seas Bite

I shot this just the other day and have already shared it. However, the more I look at this and think about it the more I realise just how grateful I am to the fabulous community of photographers on Google+

But beyond that, to one in particular. I was fortunate enough to be included in the first ever run of the Storytelling Landscape Photography mentorship run by +Sairam Sundaresan - not only is he a fantastic photographer (seriously, check out his imagery) he is a talented teacher able to covey complex topics in a way that even this dunderhead can follow.

I am far from the finished article but with Sairam's lessons still available to me as a refresher and the great helpers and fellow mentees I will continue to strive to improve. #ThankYouSairam

Learning

Up until very recently when I'm presented with a scene that has water in it my default has been to reach for my ND10 and force a long exposure.

However, looking at many images here and in particular those of +Mykal Hall I've very much come to appreciate that there are other options. Apparently the magic figure is 1/6th of a second so I wasn't far out with this one at 1/4th.

Personally I'm loving the drama that this speed creates with the power of the sea clearly evident.

Letting The Sun Go Down On Me

Also known as - waiting for the sunset at one of my fave beaches. Got soaked here because I mis-judged one wave but the breeze was so strong that I dried pretty quickly.

The noise from this pebble beach with the tide retreating is one to rival that from Devon's Durdle Door beach +Ben Locke

My March Engagers

It's that time again to share this very personal circle. These 37 fine folks have directly engaged on one of my posts during March. I truly appreciate every comment I get and will always try to respond. If I don't I'm either away, ill or dead ;-)

Adding these people to your circles is your choice but I can confirm that everyone in this circle has engaged with me recently.

What do I mean by engager?
Simply that you have left a comment, even if only one word, on one of my posts throughout the past month. And that's the only way to get in next months is to engage with me by saying something.

However .... one word comments or simple statements will not keep you in my circles. This is a temporary circle for the specific month and after this post it will be deleted. So far a couple of you have been added to a... more »

Nik Photography Cover Photo Selection – April 2, 2014
Penarth Pier © +Stuart Dyckhoff 


This week's cover photo belongs to +Stuart Dyckhoff.  Stuart is a computer network and firewall engineer from South Wales. Some of his many passions are  photography and Tang Soo Do. Stuart is fortunate to live near the sea and loves nothing better than a long exposure seascape. For this shot, he utilized a ND10 filter to reduce the overall brightness and eliminate the people moving through his shot.  Stuart did some minimal black and white processing in Silver Efex Pro 2 to bring up the detail in the wood.

Be sure to circle +Stuart Dyckhoff on Google+ to see more of his work.

The Forgotten Falls of Pont Felin Gat

Another discovery within the depths of the wonderful National Botanic Gardens of Wales - though I have to say that this visit was really rather disappointing with lots of barren flowerbeds and areas just devoid of anything. Clearly March is not the right time of year to visit.

Peace

This is my March entry for #TheBWProject +The B&W Project  and the theme this month is: Minimalist 

Our super mods are: Tisha Craw, +Susan Porter, Lauri Novak, Brandon Luk and Tom Tran. 

I forgot to title this image in the community but when I was out shooting this it was so quiet and peaceful as the world hadn't really woken up and got going yet that it not only felt peaceful it truly was. 

How I made this image:
I had the rising sun partially blocked by clouds behind me and decided to go for a long exposure. Put my Formatt-Hitech ND10 on and exposed for 2 minutes. Did my usual tweaks in Lightroom and then converted to B&W and then utilised Nik Silver Efex 2 to really bring out the sense of calm. +Nik Photography   #nikcoverphoto

Enforced Learning

Well not quite ... but circumstances today dictate that I am not in work but instead at home, exhausted and with a banging headache due to my wife coming down with Labrynthitis requiring a 10pm trip to A&E and me staying up until 04:30 to ensure she was ok before coming home.

Now she has a 2 to 4 day enforced rest period and I'm at home so decided to utilise the time to learn something. So today I am playing with smart objects, smart sharpen and high pass filters... I may have over-egged it a little but then this is my first effort.

Have circumstances ever forced you to have to learn something new?

Pink Bay

It's funny how you can live somewhere for 27yrs and still not really know it. 

Took a trip to Pink Bay yesterday with my two boys to give their mum some peace. This was my first visit yet it's right next door to a beach I visit on a regular occasion... I will be returning with my wellies & tripod to explore in more depth.

And British weather - 10 minutes after this shot we were getting hammered by tiny hail stones!

I love my beaches.

I know I may be (ok I am) biased but the beaches just down the road from me are gorgeous and thoroughly varied.

This is Ogmore by Sea beach and a great place for a stroll or to take a picture or 10. Or even just to sit and stare. Of course for me any seaside, wherever I am in the world, holds a special place in my heart as it's where I re-connect with my mum.

Also wanted to give a HUGE birthday shout-out to a supremely talented G+er and without whom this place would be a little more dreary... Penblwydd Hapus +Shantha Marie Fountain

Interesting

This product looks like the equivalent of Macphun's snapheal or Photoshop's content aware fill. However, as a clear part of their advertising strategy they talk about how easy it is to remove 'watermarks'.

Yup - sounds to me like they are encouraging folks to steal. Or did I miss something?

Coffee Time

Every time I say those two words my head always puts them to the tune of "Hammer Time"... odd how the brain makes associations like that.

But, it's Thursday which can only mean it's time to share your shots of caffeinated goodness with the world. Or at least with #CoffeeThursday  and its curators +Jason Kowing +Maki Silberberg +Sairam Sundaresan and myself +Stuart Dyckhoff

Quick question guys ...

Does the SpiderPro plates work in conjunction with the Black Widow? I've just been given a Black Widow but to make it ultra useful I really need the base plate as well.

Penarth Pier

So this is the reverse shot from outside on the pier looking back up at where I was heading for my coffee. Some of you may recall a shot from last year where the pier building was very much under scaffolding - well no longer. It is now fully restored.

Another photog came and chatted and asked if he'd got in the way but I'd put my +Formatt-Hitech ND 10 and 3 stop on so I could eliminate all the people. The scene didn't need it or benefit from it other than making it people free.

Some minimal B&W processing done in Nik SEP2 to bring up the detail in the wood otherwise left alone...  #nikcoverphoto

So in my world that makes it a #CoffeeThursday. Do share your caffeine fueled / related shots with your Brew Crew of +Jason Kowing +Sairam Sundaresan +Maki Silberberg and myself +Stuart Dyckhoff 

Took this earlier today from within the newly renovated Penarth Pier. Had finished my outside shots and it was +Owen Dyckhoff turn to buy today so ...

Humbling

I'm certain I've shared this before... but if you go to this site and enter your salary it shows you just where you sit in the world rankings for earnings.

One of the things it brings home to me is the recent USA "We are the 99%". As I understood that it meant that 99% of USA'ians are low income earners and only the top 1% have the real wealth.

Well here's my challenge. Go to this site. Put in your annual income and see where you sit. I tell you now. Unless you are unemployed or working a real dead end low salary job this will surprise and shock you. For example, in the UK the estimated average annual salary is £26,500 which puts those folks in the top 0.7% of world earners. Yup, you read that right .. the average salary earner is in the top 1%.

My own salary without shift allowance puts me in the top 0.39% and... more »

Nash Point Sunset

Look at me - sunrise and sunset on the same day - woohoo.

There was some nice crepuscular ray action going on tonight...  which leads me nicely on to how best to handle the capture and PP'ing of said rays - anybody?

A throne is only a bench covered with velvet.
~ Napoleon Bonaparte

Went out this morning straight from finishing the night shift to capture a minimalist scene for  #thebwproject  and this was my original thought prior to arriving. It didn't turn out as I was pre-imagining it but I found a better one for the theme.

Still, an early morning Welsh sea fret as the sun rose behind me gave the sky an ethereal glow. So nice to have some sun and I'm told it's with us for two weeks now. Yeehah!

Had fun playing with Analog Efex from +Nik Photography  #nikcoverphoto  for this and turned it into this faded beach postcard type scene. Hope ya like it?

Birthday Treat

I've just uploaded my one free image for #PlusOneCollectionIII as organised by +Ivan Makarov 

Whilst it may seem an odd title for the Samuel Beckett Bridge in Dublin; this was my 50th birthday treat weekend from my wife. She got to sit patiently (and read her kindle) whilst I got to take lots of pictures. Most definitely a treat for me.

I didn't bother with last years book as so many folks entered so many great landscape shots that I just felt I couldn't compete. This year there are 3 distinct categories with one of them being "Our Creations". And as Ivan says the landscapes are coming in thick and fast again I opted for one of the other categories.

Full details here: http://bit.ly/NTulOP and there's still time to submit yours.

I Asked...

“I asked the Zebra, are you black with white stripes?
Or white with black stripes?
And the zebra asked me, are you good with bad habits?
Or are you bad with good habits?
Are you noisy with quiet times?
Or are you quiet with noisy times?
Are you happy with some sad days?
Or are you sad with some happy days?
Are you neat with some sloppy ways?
Or are you sloppy with some neat ways?
And on and on and on and on and on and on he went.
I’ll never ask a zebra about stripes...again.”
~ Shel Silverstein

I find that there's something inherently sad about the way a zebra looks... but inspired by the processing of +Robin Griggs Wood zebra shot I decided to try something a little different for me. But not too different :)

Today is a day I stepped out of my comfort zone ...

February Engagers

It's time to share the circle of those of you that have engaged with me this past month. The number is way down on January but then so has my sharing - mostly due to the weather. All in all, the end result is not surprising

Adding these people to your circles is your choice but I can confirm that everyone in this circle is an engager. 

What do I mean by engager?
Simply that you have left a comment, even if only one word, on one of my posts throughout the past month. And the only way to get in next months is to engage with me. 

However .... one word comments or simple statements will not keep you in my circles. This is a temporary circle for the specific month and after this post it will be deleted. So far a couple of you have been added to a permanent place in my circles because you have gone above and beyond simpleco... more »

 Dydd Gwyl Dewi Hapus (again)

It's getting a bit dark to be taking pictures of the base of my apple tree and the Daff's around it. But here's one works for me.

And as we didn't have daff's for St David's day last year it somehow just seems right.

Trapped

This is my entry for February's B&W monthly project. Theme for this month was "trapped" and I subtitled it 'The eyes are the windows of our souls'.

You will very much need to view this large to understand it. Enjoy.

Whatever, it's true. This works both ways.

Trapped

Not my picture but this is a genuine shot of a bench in what is known as Pink Bay, Porthcawl just a few short miles down the road from me.

It is the 'recent' handiwork of some ultra-bright spark that is employed by my local council. I don't know whether to track them down and shake their hand or slap them.

Tagging in the #thebwproject  folks as our theme for this month is trapped. I wish I'd seen this in time as I would have made the journey down there to get the shot myself.

I never look back darling. It distracts from the now.
Edna Mode, The Incredibles

Unlike Edna, one of the early photography lessons I learned was to "turn around" or at least to examine the scene before, behind and around me. Whilst the composition of this image isn't everything I'd like it to be I did think the pink/red clouds from the setting sun were more than interesting enough to capture.

And if I hadn't looked behind me whilst the sun was setting (see my last image shared or click here: http://bit.ly/1gM9XZZ) I would never have experienced this.

What simple lesson(s) have you learned that stick with you and you could share?

BTW - The Incredibles is a great film f you've never seen it :)

Is there an easy way to locate a discussion that you've had with one person?

I have a rough idea of date but if I just scroll back through my notifications I can't find what I'm after. If I want to search my timeline I can: http://www.googleplussuomi.com/timelinetest.php?googleid=102165221944293633376&sort=newest but there doesn't appear to be a way to do the same for my notifications.

Anyone know?
