Piotr Tymiński7,625My very own circle of PHOTOGRAPHERS v.2A word of thanks to all of you who are a constant source of inspiration for me and a botomless well of beautiful work which is a joy to look at Real people here who post their own work. Amateurs and professionals. And no, I don't care about the number of followers they may have. It's all about the quality and, of course, quality is a very subjective matter so don't get upset with my choice:) I'm sure it can be a great source of inspiration for everybody. Many of the people in the circles have me in their circles and some do not, but take it easy, you don't need to circle me back - it's all about enjoying some great photography. And some of them (what a horror!) do not even call themselves photographers but somehow happily produce content which beats many so called "pro" guys.This circle is obviously under permanent development as new photographers are added when I come around some work I really enjoy. If you are into photography and I've circled you it means you will sooner or later be in this circle. I am simply putting some sense into my contacts - bringing order from chaos, you see... If you are into urbex and derelict climate please look for another circle of mine which is specifically dedicated to such kind of photography.Sharing is alway appreciated. #photographycircles #photographers  #photography #sharedcircles  #topcircles #circleshare #publicsharedcircle2014-05-30 19:07:18415261820CC 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 16:11:45488208199239CC 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.

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 03:26:0247725863164CC G+

Dallas McMillan7,412Circle from the land downunder - Australia's top 200 PlussersWho are Australia's most followed people on Google Plus?I've put together this circle of Australia's top 200 profiles (by follower numbers - not engagement - some aren't particularly active) on Google Plus.It's pretty interesting to see the types of profiles which make the cut.Here is my quick overview:By far the most dominant characteristic of the top 200 are photographers - professional and amateur.The other notable individuals are a couple of cricketers in the top 10, a smattering of celebrity chefs, musicians, writers, artists, models and other celebrities.There are also fair numbers of Google employees, IT workers, social media and marketing types as well as a decent number of scientists and mathematicians. The only politician I noticed was Malcolm Turnbull - the Prime Minister and Leader of the opposition are conspicuous by their absence.I got the list from +CircleCount http://www.circlecount.com/au/profileslist/ and I've made a few tweaks - removing a couple of profiles that were inactive or had moved away from Australia. There were a number of others which probably don't belong as they now work in the USA or elsewhere.  #australia   #australianphotographers   #circleshare  I've notified members of the circle - let me know if you don't want to be listed.2013-08-04 14:24:522009213CC G+

The Most Easterly Sunrise, Byron Bay, Australia

In case you didn't know, the edge of the peninsula in Byron Bay is the most easterly point of mainland Australia. As such, it is technically one of the first places in the world to witness the days' sunrise. Another thing I would say is, that the sunrises have always been nothing short of spectacular when I have visited. Byron Bay is probably my favourite place in the world, and every time I visit (which is a lot) I always make sure I get up and head to the end of the cape with my camera for sunrise. it just doesn't get any better!

I took this one on another perfect morning just last week

Cloudy Sky, North Stradbroke Island, Queensland, Australia

This photo shows pretty much the perfect day time weather conditions that I look for in a photograph. If you have a clear blue sky or a bleak grey one, then pictures tend to be more boring. Light, fluffy cloud against a beautiful blue Australian sky is about as good as it gets!

City In The Clouds, Mt Coot-Tha, Brisbane, Queenslands, Australia

Because Brisbane has a beautiful, sub tropical climate, fog is very rare. In 3 years of living here, this photo actually marks the first time I've seen any! Granted, I've not been getting up at dawn regularly and looking out for it, but still it's rare to see.

The best place to see the fog over the city is from above it, which means going to the lookout at Mt Coot-Tha. Imagine my joy, when the one morning I actually decide to go to the lookout for sunrise, a beautiful blanket of fog and low cloud happened to cover the city. Sometimes you just have to celebrate the wins!

Painted Sky, North Stradbroke Island, Queensland, Australia

One of the most beautiful things about Australian weather is the consistent light, fluffy clouds that you get. They are unlike the dense, grey and depressing versions that used to constantly cover the sky when I was back living in the UK. These ones look like they were lightly created with the stroke of a paint brush. They are photography gold during the middle of the day.

While I was on North Stradbroke Island last weekend, there was lots of this cloud around, so even at midday the shots were great. I took this photo out on some mud flats after I saw this marooned boat from a distance. It was incredibly problematic to get across the mud whilst I was sinking with every step to say the least. The things I do to get photographs...........

The Sunset Surfer, Cylinder Beach, Stradbroke Island, Queensland, Australia

I really wasn't annoyed when this surfer decided to walk through my shot. She just made the scene look better. She also managed to look towards the setting sun just as I pressed the shutter button. I love it when it all coincidentally comes together. It doesn't happen often.

Pacific Sunset, North Stradbroke Island, Queensland, Australia

This weekend I spent a day with my good mate +Kristin Repsher photographing North Stradbroke Island, which is not far from Brisbane. We had a great time driving around and exploring what is the second largest sand island in the world.

After a long day photographing several areas of the island we camped ourselves on the rocks at Cylinder Beach and were rewarded with an incredible sunset. The day couldn't have ended in a better way.

The Arch Above The Arch

Following up my last shot from Joshua Tree with a pano that was a bit of an experiment. I was only about 10-12 feet away from the arch and I was fairly confident that there was no way that a pano would work from that range without incredible distortion to the rocks as I was trying to shoot nearly 180 degrees and capture both the Arch Rock and the Milky Way above. . But what the heck...I shot away just for fun and was shocked to find that it worked when I got home and merged it through photoshop. This is an 8 frame pano taken with the Nikkor 14-24 2.8. (25 second exposures at F2.8, ISO 3200)

Within The Tube, Byron Bay, Australia

This is what it looks like when a wave starts to crash in to a tube from within. Pretty cool huh? Yes I did get soaked. Yes I did get crashed on to shore like a piece of driftwood. Yes it was worth it :)

Koya-San near Osaka, Japan is an extraordinarily beautiful and contemplative space. Well worth the 8 hour round-trip train journey.

Pastel Sunrise, Byron Bay, Australia

I love that time just before sunrise or just after sunset when you get a beautiful pastel colour gradient on the horizon. On a good day you get everything from orange to purple in one sky. When I took this picture just before sunrise in Byron Bay, it was definitely one of those days :)

Crashing Wave, Byron Bay, Australia

Staring down the barrel of a crashing wave is one of the most mesmerising things I have done. It's crazy, but I haven't ever really noticed it properly until I started photographing them recently. now I can't get enough. This kind of shot, where the barrel is fully formed, is my favourite way to capture the waves.

"The Edge Of Perception" 

Here is a new photograph from one of my favorite spots in California, Santa Ynez. The rolling hills with giant oak trees makes for some awesome foreground with the Milky Way. The bright spots on the horizon is not the sun setting, but actually the Light Pollution from Los Angeles county. I hope you guys enjoy the photograph.

The Most Easterly Sunrise, Byron Bay, Australia

In case you didn't know, the edge of the peninsula in Byron Bay is the most easterly point of mainland Australia. As such, it is technically one of the first places in the world to witness the days' sunrise. Another thing I would say is, that the sunrises have always been nothing short of spectacular when I have visited. Byron Bay is probably my favourite place in the world, and every time I visit (which is a lot) I always make sure I get up and head to the end of the cape with my camera for sunrise. it just doesn't get any better!

I took this one on another perfect morning just last week

Milky Way, Clarke's Beach, Byron Bay, Australia

I was so lucky when I went to Byron Bay. Not only was the weather perfectly clear in the day, but there was little or no moon which meant I could photograph the stars. I headed out at midnight to Clarke's Beach, a location away from the town lights. It meant that I could see the Milky Way with my own eyes, which is pretty rare and very cool. It was too cold for me to stay out for too long, but I did manage to get a few great shots of the Milky Way appearing out of the horizon.

Shorebreak At Sunset, Byron Bay, Australia

At sunset, waves take on some really beautiful colours. When I shot this the sun was setting behind the wave, which made it really deep, dark blue. You can just see hints of the sunset orange shining through at the top of the wave which looks almost crystalline. Definitely one of the most beautiful parts of nature that I have ever had the pleasure of photographing.

Cresting Wave, Byron Bay, Australia

I really had to share one of my images that I took today from in the surf at Byron Bay. There's not much I can say other than it was the first time I have ever tried it, and it was the most fun I've had with my photography in a long, long time. I got smashed by wave after wave for a few hours and loved every minute of it :)

I'm soooo tired

This has been my timetable for the last 24hrs.

10am - arrive in Byron Bay. Straight in to the sea with my camera to photograph waves
2pm - get out, get warm and eat.
3pm - get back in to do the same thing at sunset
6pm - arrive at where I'm staying. Eat dinner. Edit images.
11pm - head out again to shoot the milky way on the peninsula
1am - sleep
5am - wake up and head out to shoot sunset by the lighthouse
Now (7am) - breakfast & coffee before getting back in to the sea for more waves.

I'm so tired I can barely see straight, but I wouldn't want to be doing anything else! I love what I do :)

I just got my DSLR out in to the waves for the first time and it was probably the most fun I've ever had with my camera. I'm freezing now so I'd better go and find some hot coffee!

Twilight Rat Race, Brisbane, Australia

I was out super early again this morning to shoot another timelapse segment for an up coming feature I'm doing on Brisbane. I was trying to capture the sunrise over Brisbane city from dark to light, so I had to get to my position about an hour before hand. While I had one camera set up on a tripod and firing away on interval mode (taking a photo every 15 seconds for 2 hours), I was able to grab some other photos at different angles with my new Nikon D7100.

This was what it all looked like at 5:54am. It was still that twilight hour, where the sky was a subtle hue of purple and all of the lights were still on. It was also the time when traffic from people commuting to work in the city started. The rat race starts early these days.

Early Morning Sun, Ballina, NSW, Australia

I have to say that my favourite time of day to be out and about is just after sunrise. I'm talking about the time when the sun is still low in the sky and everything gets painted in that awesome golden light. It really sucks to get up in time for sunrise, but it's always worth it for me. It's the time when I seem to have all of my best creative ideas as well. Not to sound too full on, but there's something about watching the sun rise out of the ocean that really makes you feel good to be alive.

Floating Lanterns In Long Exposure, Brisbane, Australia

I love playing with long exposures to get light trails! While the Illuminations Festival wasn't that great, I did manage to mess around with the lanterns floating past to get this shot. There was a very, very slow current so in order to get this amount of movement, I had to keep the camera shutter open for over 2 minutes. The lanterns also changed colour as they went, which made it look like the rainbow road from Mario Kart, which is awesome!

"Egmont.."

Shot from the Pouakai Range, Egmont National Park, NZ

A vista like this could easily be one of the most special in the entire country. I only spent a few days at Egmont National Park, but I look forward to spending a lot more time within its boundaries in the future exploring off the beaten track, it definitely impressed me with accessibility, beauty and variety.

TECHNICAL TIP:
This image was captured solely for use in black and white. I used a red filter to intensify the blues (Blue +Red = Blackish).. This is an old technique used in the film days, but works just as well in the digital world. The only downside is, you are committing yourself to a B+W image in post production, but in general I find the B+W image to be smoother in tonal graduations as I am not having to push pixels in post production so much to get the contrast I am after..

Brisbane Under Fog At Sunrise Panorama, Mt Coot-Tha, Australia

There's not much I can say about this shot, other than I think it is my favourite panorama image that I have created yet. I posted a pic of Brisbane city under cloud before light a couple of days ago, and this was the scene an hour afterwards. I love how the sun turned the thick fog in to a fiery orange while it enveloped the city. It was a magical thing to witness, that's for sure.

Illuminations Festival, Wynnum, Brisbane, Australia

This weekend I went to the inaugural Illuminations Festival in Wynnum with a friend. It was advertised as a lantern extravaganza similar to the amazing Yi Peng festival in Thailand. What really happened was more like a few fairy lights thrown in to the local wading pool, which had a light current that just pushed them all to the sides. Ah well, I still got some pretty cool photos though, so it wasn't all bad.

This shot is of the wading pool during blue hour. You can see all of the people around the pool with the glow of lanterns directly in front of them.

Brisbane Under Fog At Night, Mt Coot-Tha, Australia

You have to roll the dice when it comes to weather conditions for any kind of outdoor photography. Sometimes they're as expected, sometimes it all goes wrong for you and every now and again, if you're lucky, random conditions align and you get something spectacular. Yesterday morning at sunrise I most definitely had the latter. 

Ever since I arrived in Brisbane, I have wanted to go to the lookout on Mt Coot-Tha for sunrise. It's taken nearly 3 years, but yesterday I finally got to do it with my good mate Dan. We got up super early and drove up there in the pitch black, unsure of what conditions were going to be like. Imagine our surprise when we saw a thick layer of fog enveloping the entire valley, with the skyscrapers of Brisbane City poking out at the top. It looked incredible. Random conditions aligned to give... more »

Pointing To The Sun, Airlie Beach, The Whitsundays, Australia

Getting bored of me sharing photos from the beautiful Whitsundays yet? Well, I'm definitely not so I'm going to keep them coming a little while longer.

The Whitsundays was one of those few places that I've visited where every time I got my camera out, magic happened. Usually, I take hundreds of photos from one area and get about a 10-20% hit rate with images I am willing to use afterwards. In the Whitsundays it was more like 60-70%! I don't know if it was the place, the weather or if I was particularly inspired, but everywhere I took a shot I got a winner. The only other place where that happens to me is Byron Bay.

I shared a similar image from this sunset a week ago. This one has a different angle on the jetty and it was taken 2 minutes earlier so the sun was just above the horizon. It was... more »

Seabreak, Airlie Beach, The Whitsundays, Australia

This is that moment after sunrise, when the cloud is hanging on to the last of its morning colours. I always make sure I hang around a little longer after sunrise to try and capture this scene. The stony sea break in this shot made for the perfect leading line in to the bay.
