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 19:07:18415262020

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 16:11:45488208192240

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.

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 14:24:522009213

A Walk In The Moonlight, Currumbin, QLD, Australia

The fact that this photo was taken at night in the pitch black will no doubt confuse some people. It looks almost like daytime doesn't it? The give away feature is the stars you can see in the sky if you look closely.

This shot was taken over 30 seconds under moonlight. Thanks to some camera magic I was able to pull out a lot more detail than my eyes could see.

Mooloolaba Sunrise, Queensland, Australia

There's not much I can say about this other than it is the usual stunning Queensland sunrise. I took this at Point Cartwright, which has a large area of rocks right by the sea perfect for seascape photography. It's always worth waking up at 4am for this :)

Flowers In The Sun, Lake Samsonvale, QLD, Australia

The banks of Lake Samsonvale are covered in these small yellow flowers. The light was perfect, so I lay down in the field on my belly and grabbed a few shots. Looks like spring in a photo to me.

Stage 1 Of My Upcoming Round The World Trip

I can finally confirm the first part of our upcoming adventure around the world and I'm super excited. In early November Laura and I will be visiting Gili Trawangan Island in Indonesia for 10 days, where I will be partnering with a couple of charities as well as shooting a heap of content, potentially including a video. I'll also make an extra special attempt to chill out where possible with many cocktails in hand (naturally).

After that, it's back to the UK to coordinate with more partners, potentially work a few shoots in London and enjoy Christmas with my family. Can't wait :)

This was taken on one of those crazy Queensland days, where everything about the cloud overhead suggested wind, rain and lightning. Of course, it never rained a drop and an hour later the sky was bright blue with barely any cloud. It's hard to beat the weather in this part of the world!

I'm Going On Another Adventure!

I've got big news about a huge trip I'll be going on very soon with some really exciting projects. I'm still working out the details, but I can safely say it will involve several global destinations and at least 6 months of my time. I'll share all the details when I have them so stay tuned!

Field Of Flowers, Lake Samsonvale, QLD, Australia

A lake surrounded by a field of bright yellow wild flowers while the sun sets. A really excellent combination for photographs!

A New View, Brisbane, QLD, Australia

This view itself isn't exactly new, but the perspective is. I've personally taken more photos than I can count of the Story Bridge and the city from this direction, but this is the first time I've been able to do it from river level thanks to the new riverside walkway that has opened. Previously, you could only see the city from this perspective if you were on a boat, which is not photographer friendly.

Flowers In The Sun, Lake Samsonvale, QLD, Australia

The banks of Lake Samsonvale are covered in these small yellow flowers. The light was perfect, so I lay down in the field on my belly and grabbed a few shots. Looks like spring in a photo to me.

A Walk In The Moonlight, Currumbin, QLD, Australia

The fact that this photo was taken at night in the pitch black will no doubt confuse some people. It looks almost like daytime doesn't it? The give away feature is the stars you can see in the sky if you look closely.

This shot was taken over 30 seconds under moonlight. Thanks to some camera magic I was able to pull out a lot more detail than my eyes could see.

3 Black Swans And A Sunset, Lake Samsonvale, QLD, Australia

This scene with 3 black swans on a lake, with the sun setting in the background looks serene and peaceful. In reality, you need to add a photographer (me), camera in hand, running up and down the bank chasing the swans in order to get a real appreciation. Not so serene and peaceful really :)

Mirrored Sunset, Lake Samsonvale, QLD, Australia

This is yesterday's sunset from Lake Samsonvale in QLD. It's very rare to find a lake with waters so still like this, and photographers love them. It means you can get the cool mirror reflection effect from the water like in this shot below. Hopefully I can get back to this lake at some point soon to photograph the stars!

Fire Spinning From The Jetty, Currumbin, QLD, Australia

My last stop during the recent epic 'worlds biggest Instameet' in Queensland was to Currumbin after dark to photograph some wire wool spinning. It's a pretty cool thing to shoot. Basically, a dude lights some wire wool at the end of a string, then proceeds to spin it and send sparks everywhere, all while the photographer is doing a long exposure. Looks awesome doesn't it?

Sunrise On The Rocks, Mooloolaba, Queensland, Australia

I love that time just before sunrise, when the sky changes to various soft, pastel colours. I'm usually all about strong, vibrant colours in my landscapes, but as with this image, I think sometimes subtle colours work a lot better. This was taken in Mooloolaba QLD, which has some really beautiful coastline. It's one of my favourite places in Queensland to shoot seaside landscapes 

I actually took this photo nearly 2 years ago, but only processed it recently. I could never get it quite right until recently, as my post processing skills have improved dramatically over that time!

Redcliffe Jetty In Monochrome, Brisbane, QLD, Australia

This image was one from the sunrise shoot at Redcliffe Jetty that I went to with +Kristin Repsher as part of the world's biggest Instameet in Queensland on Saturday . The conditions weren't perfect to be honest, as the sky was covered in a thick layer of dramatic cloud that stopped any sun being seen. Never mind, it was ideal for some black and white photography :)

This shot is just stunning. I love the golds and yellows!

The Golden Grove... Truckee, California
Dreaming, planning, assessing, delicious-izing.
Just a few of the things she most loved about Autumn.

Fall musings and photos on my blog today: http://bit.ly/ZPa1Vq

This was actually taken last year around this time... the nicest man in town let me into his yard to photograph the INSANE colors of his cottonwood trees. I gave him copies of the best shots... and his family used one of them for their family Christmas card. It was such a feel-good moment! 

I do love this time of year. And while the colors are HUGE part of it, there are other things to love about Autumn. Like the harvest of your best ideas and results from the year... and deciding which ones move forward, which ones to let go of. I love that process. It's a TOTAL excuse to daydream. 

I think I'll go do that now. Grin.

Surfers Paradise From Above, Gold Coast, QLD, Australia

After our day of whale watching in Gold Coast, my fiancée and I went up to the Skypoint viewing deck at the top of the gigantic Q1 tower for sunset. It was pretty spectacular to be honest. Not only did we get an awesome view of the rest of the city, but there was a bar up there too, which in my opinion improves nearly every situation.

The Humpback And The City, Gold Coast, QLD, Australia

I had such an awesome time yesterday whale watching at Surfers Paradise on the Gold Coast. I went out with a company called Whales In Paradise, who were nice enough to invite us to see the amazing Humpback Whales up close. 

It blew my mind to see these majestic 15 metre long, 40 tonne animals up close in the flesh. It's incredibly hard to describe the sense of scale, but it's a similar feeling to looking up from the base of a skyscraper for the first time. They are gigantic!

This is my favourite shot from the trip. I wasn't lucky enough to see a whale jump out of the water or 'breach', but I did manage to get this guy with the Gold Coast city skyline as a backdrop.

Brisbane City Blue Hour Panorama, Queensland, Australia

This panorama needs to be viewed large!

Before all of the fireworks kicked off for Riverfire last night, I shot this panorama in some beautiful 'blue hour' light. It took 6 shots which I stitched together, and has a high enough resolution to be blown up the size of several billboards. Someday I think I'll get this printed huge for my house.

Riverfire 2014, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

The Riverfire fireworks display is the biggest night of the year in Brisbane. Usually, I'm relegated to fighting for a space along the river for me to set up my gear. It's always crowded, intense and it takes the shine off of the whole occasion a little.

This year however, thanks to a friend of a friend (I won't mention names as requested, but you know who you are), I was able to spend this year at the top of a building in the middle of the CBD! Epic is a word that is overused in recent times, but this definitely was epic. I was right in the middle of all the action with fireworks going off all around.

Best. Night. Ever.

Feeding Agro, Australia Zoo, Queensland, Australia

If anybody gets the chance to visit Australia Zoo at any point, then you have to see the crocodile feeding shows. It's amazing, and a little scary to see the crocs in action. The croc in this pick is called Agro, and he was apparently Steve Irwin's favourite of all the crocs at the zoo. I rather it's this guy feeding him than me!

The croc in this pick is called Agro, and he was apparently Steve Irwin's favourite of all the crocs at the zoo. I rather it's this guy feeding him than me!

I've partnered with the Suncorp Group tonight to raise funds for the Starlight Foundation. I donated 2 of my prints for the raffle, and I hope they help to reach the $20,000 target they have. I always love to see my work in print!

Viewing Paradise, Hill Inlet, The Whitsundays, Australia

Whitehaven beach is one of the few places that I've been to, that feels like it isn't real, even when you're standing there looking right at it. It is quite simply the most beautiful beach I have ever seen (and I've seen my fair share).

There is a bush walk right off the beach that leads to this lookout. It has one of the greatest views in the world, no doubt. I grabbed this shot while the other members of the group were looking over the beach and pinching themselves.

Enjoying The Sunset, Mooloolaba, Queensland, Australia

I took this one a while back. In fact, nearly 2 years ago! I always make sure to go back through old images every now and again to see what I can find to edit. My image editing skills have improved dramatically from 2 years ago. I think I originally over looked it because I couldn't get it to work, but I could this time :)

I shot this at sunset on a rocky spit that marks one side of the shipping channel that goes inland. There where lots of people hanging around to watch the sun go down and do a bit of fishing. I also remember us getting a visit from a few dolphins as well which was pretty cool.

hello bucket list :)

Logpiles and Rockpiles

Below the Rockpile lookout, right at the end of Moraine Lake, we found this giant pile of logs as we searched for our first glimpse of the lake. Even from here, where the lake didn't look quite as brilliantly blue as it did from above, I was stunned by the beauty of the place. No wonder all of the visitors to the Canadian Rockies make sure to stop off here!

Through The Gap, Mooloolaba, Queensland, Australia

I'm posting a lot of coastal landscapes at the moment. This is mainly because I went to Point Cartwright for sunrise last weekend and it was such a good location, that I got heaps of great shots to share.

There was a natural trench that was formed in the rocks by the tide that was great to photograph. Every time the tide flowed in, it would break on the rocks and rush down the trench at great speed, which made for a great long exposure effect. It also helped that the sunrise happened to line up perfectly with the opening at the other end. Sing when you're winning :)

Holy Lightning Batman!


Run we did!

The strikes kept getting closer and closer. This one is hitting near the viewpoint at Horseshoe in Page, Arizona. 

Photographers are a strange breed. We will deal with getting soaked, crawling into tiny canyons, ticks, poison oak.. you name it. What you see is a pretty cool picture. Just be happy you can see this from your computer, instead of running for cover like we did.

Tide On The Rocks, Mooloolaba, Queensland, Australia

Sometimes It takes getting myself soaked to get the coastal shot I want. In this case, I wanted to capture the tide rushing over the rocks towards the camera, which meant me standing right in the line of fire. It is hugely uncomfortable afterwards, especially when I have to walk up a beach to get to the car and my legs get plastered in sand. It's always worth it, and I strangely enjoy it!

Oh, and I was also lucky enough to get sun rays bursting from behind a cloud in the distance. It doesn't happen often, but it always looks cool.

Is anybody interested in winning an adventure trip to the Amazon Rainforest worth $20,000?

I thought that would grab your attention! I just entered a Facebook competition that is currently being run by RID Australia, a company who specialises in tropical strength insect repellents. The prize is an amazing trip to the Amazon Rainforest, where I have no doubt that there are a fair few mosquitos!

The only catch? You are required to spend 8 hours a day wearing nothing but briefs while completing various challenges, all the while being recorded by a film crew. Sounds awesome to me :)

If you're the adventurous type who is game for a challenge, then you can enter on their Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/pages/RID-Australia/159489131524

You can see my entry pic above. As you can see, the likeness of the body model is uncanny #ridDTchallenge

Brisbane City Blue Hour, Queensland, Australia

This weekend I had the pleasure of heading out with +Nathan White , +Kristin Repsher and +Reichlyn Aguilar to shoot the Brisbane city skyline at sunset. The Sunset wasn't that brilliant, but we had a great time and managed to get some cool shots of the city during blur hour (just before the sky is fully dark). Now that the Story Bridge lighting changes colours every night, it's always pot luck as to what you are going to get. Luckily, on this night it was a deep red, which is a colour I've never photographed it in before.

The Forest Canopy, Mt Tambourine, Queensland, Australia

Most of my time walking through and exploring the tropical forests on Mt Tambourine was spent looking up. The trees were so tall that there was hardly any light under the canopy (and that's saying something given that I was in the 'Sunshine State'). It makes you feel pretty small and insignificant in a good way.

Campfire Under The Milky Way, Kakadu National Park, Northern Territories, Australia

One of the things I enjoyed most while I was travelling through the outback in the Northern Territories, was the amount of stars that you could see in the sky at night. I was lucky enough to spend pretty much every night in 'the bush' sleeping out under them. It's one of the few places where I have been able to just about make out the Milky Way with my own eyes.

I took this shot while the rest of my group were all huddled around the camp fire for the night. Thanks to my camera, I was able to pull out all of those awesome Milky Way details in the sky.

South Tufa Sunrise

Here's another shot from our 24 hour Yosemite/Mono lake marathon last month.  After we had been shooting for about an hour, the sun finally broke through the clouds and suddenly all of the photographers on the South side of the lake were very busy.   In this shot, I was trying to capture not only the marvelous light on the tufa towers, but also the double sunburst as the lake caught the reflection.  This particular visit to the lake was very gratifying after being shut out on three previous attempts.  Two of those were 3:30 AM wake ups, and one was a three hour drive down from Reno while I was at a convention.   It's nice to shoot Mono Lake on a typical cloudless Summer day, but the lake takes on an entirely different dynamic once you have a mix of clouds and sun overhead.

The Sand Castle Sculptor, Noosa Heads, Queensland, Australia

I've been going through some of my shots from last summer and I dug this one out from Noosa Heads on Queensland's Sunshine Coast. The guy in this shot was amazing. That beautiful sand castle took him over 4 hours to sculpt!

I have completely forgotten his name, but apparently he's there on Noosa Beach regularly making all kinds of cool stuff from sand

Leaving The Temple Of Heaven, Beijing, China

By far the most people I have ever witnessed in one place at one time, was as I was leaving the Temple Of Heaven in Beijing after a Sunday morning prayers. This wasn't too surprising of course, with Beijing being the capital of the most populous country on Earth.

It is something that you have to see first hand in order to completely appreciate the sheer magnitude of the crowds though. As you can see from this picture, the large road leading from the south gate to the temple compound was completely full of people. Thankfully, I decided to hang around and allow the people to disperse for fear of going in and never coming out again.

Purple Volcano

This is a photograph taken during my recent short trip to the Isle of Skye with dramatic view of the Cuillin mountains range. Heading to the Elgol peninsula I was trapped for a while when a herd of coos had blocked a single track road leading to the beach and I was almost sure I will miss the sunset. Luckily I got there in last few minutes before sunset. I had no time to work on composition but still I like this what I managed to take. I hope you like it as well and please free to comment and share the photo.

Have a nice weekend!
