Gailen Mapes70,831Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera L - 7 of 31Note: 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 November 7th for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting October 1st.)  You can also use the #handpickedcircles hash tag and sort by "recent."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   #bestsharedcircle   #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle             #handpickedcircles             Note: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes  .   Thanks for your cooperation.2014-11-07 21:42:1151003

I finally added my last person. :)I will seek more of these in the future, don't worry, and this means I will have to share multiple circles from now on, but for now...these are the 500 most inspirational people on Google Plus for me.A great big Thank You to everybody in this circle for enriching my Google Plus experience and inspire and motivate me in becoming a better photographer.artist. #circleshare   #circlesharing   #circles  2014-01-09 22:05:0550031930

Thomas Hawk6,146,1772500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 3 of 5)This is the fifth time I've shared my photographer's circle on Google+.  I'm going to share it in 5 posts.  Last week I shared last name A-Da, and Da-Ho.  Today's , part 3 of 5, today, represents Ho-Mi.  I'll share the remaining two tomorrow and Thursday.  I originally shared my photographers circle at 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 photographers.  I'll probably share it again eventually when it gets to 3,000.A few notes about this circle.The criteria that I look for (and don't always get right) in this circle is that the photographer produce interesting and engaging photography.  I also look for people who are active in the community, post mostly their own work, and post regularly.  I'm looking more for people who post their own work and less of the noise stuff (gifs, links, non-photography, promotions, etc.).  I also like people who are positive, friendly, nice, helpful, etc. and dislike people who are mean, snarky, jerks, disrespectful, etc.I have a pretty well known bias against signatures and watermarks.  You will see very few photographers in my circles who use them.  I really hate the watermark debate and would rather not have it with folks.  I just don't like them -- it's my circle that I have to look at.  There are likely a few folks in here who use them who are friends of mine, but for the most part, this is a pretty watermark free circle.  It's totally cool if you love your watermark, it's just not something I really want to look at.  Please don't hate me for my aesthetic preference.  Finally, the photography community on Google+ is probably the best one on the internet today.  There is no way that I can possibly include all of the fine photographers worth following on G+.  There are wayyyyy too many.  These are just 2,500 that I personally have noticed.  I'm sure I left out some really amazing ones -- like you if you are not in this circle :)  I'll probably also totally kick myself when I realize that I accidentally left out a really obvious good one who may even be a friend of mine -- again, maybe even like you.  :)Stay tuned for parts 4 and 5 and thanks again to all of the great photographers on G+ who make this place such a delight to hang out.Part 1-5:  http://goo.gl/17ujpnPart 2-5:  http://goo.gl/3vn0OC*Note, Google Circles are terribly wonky.  It wouldn't let me add some photographers in my circle into these circles because of "domain errors."  If this affected you, sorry about that.2013-09-03 18:49:364857231117

Salomon Beach, one of the most pretty beaches in Virgin Islands National Park, is relatively quiet because of the need to hike 1 mile to get there. The tree on the left is quite small, I sat down on the sand for this composition, to make sure its palms didn't overlap with the trees fringing the beach.

Not your typical image of the Olympic National Park rain forests... I was looking for fall foliage at Maple Glades, Quinault in mid-October, and for some reason, the best was high up.

To photograph Panther Creek in Mount Rainier National Park, I walked into the streambed in knee-high water and used a wide-angle lens just above the water surface. It was mid-October, brrr!

Happy birthday to Zion! Today in 1919, Zion became a National Park. I debated going there last week to improve my images of the Narrows, but decided to postpone until next May to avoid cold water temperatures in the slot canyons.

Stevens Canyon was the only place in Mount Rainier where I found autumn foliage on distant hillsides - as opposed to within a forest.

You can easily miss Christine Falls in Mount Rainier National Park because it is under the road! Would you frame it with, or without the bridge ?

Arguably the most remote community in the lower 48 states, Stehekin can be reached only by floatplane or ferry. Getting to Stehekin is part of the adventure. Last October, I visited Stehekin to check out this intriguing community and explore another seldom visited corner of North Cascades National Park at the peak of fall foliage. Read about what I found there on the blog: http://bit.ly/1E9v6X4

I found so many different compositions around the modest Coon Lake (North Cascades National Park Service Complex) that it was difficult to leave. Mid-Oct is a great time to visit Stehekin Valley, even though that's when shuttles services stop.

Despite the sunny forecast, I could see that the day was getting cloudy, so instead of trying to hike high, I lingered on the shores of Coon Lake (North Cascades National Park Service Complex) to photograph more intimate scenes.

McGregor Mountain reflected in Coon Lake, North Cascades National Park Service Complex. I was thinking about hiking 6.4 miles (and 5800ft elevation gain) to the top, but changed my mind because of the weather.

As nice as daylight images of the North Cascades alpine larch were, I strived to make nighttime images, since I thought they would be new. To find out what I did, read http://bit.ly/10z94Rp

Like in the previous close-up image, I shot backlit to add glow to the larch needles at Easy Pass. As dynamic range in this wide-angle image was marginal, I used a second exposure for the sky, retaining more detail in the sky.

The heavy 100-400mm telephoto that I had lugged up Easy Pass helped me isolate subalpine larch against the background of a mountain face in the shade, which created contrast with its darker tone and blue tint. Do you prefer this image or the previous one ?

I liked how the texture of the rock wall complements the Subalpine Larch as both receive last light at Easy Pass (a misnomer: 3000ft+ in about 3 miles) in North Cascades National Park.

I returned to North Cascades National Park to look for Subalpine Larch in fall foliage. Turning gold in mid-October, they are a rare deciduous conifer, and grow only at high altitude in small area of the park, which requires some effort to get to.

My favorite location to shoot the sunset in Everglades National Park is the Pine Glades Lake. Last summer it did not disappoint. As I stayed after dark for some night photography, the mosquitoes became voracious. I had forgotten bug repellant and couldn't keep them out of the car, but I found out that if I cranked AC to the max, they were not able to bite me due to cold and air flow.

Did you know that there is an unit of Virgin Islands National Park not located on Saint John Island ? In my effort to visit every corner of the national parks, I toured quickly Hassel Island, crossing from Charlotte Amalie on a kayak. Despite its 136 acre (half a square kilometer), there is an abandoned railway there, guess what it was used for ?

Although this appears to be a sunset, the light in this image came from the light pollution of Cruz Bay in Virgin Islands National Park. It was actually fairly dark, as you can infer from the stars in the sky. I lighted the cactus by bouncing my light on the shrubs behind me, therefore making the greens more saturated. I had to shoot several frames to get a sharp one, as it was pretty windy. At least that kept bugs away!

I brought a underwater housing for my Canon 5Dmk2, carried at great effort and expense, but it flooded on my first dive, ruining the camera. So that's about the only usable underwater types of image I got from Virgin Islands National Park, as I was left with just a waterproof P&S.

In the past, several wildfires have burned at the periphery of Yosemite National Park, however, when the Meadow Fire flared up on Sept 7, 2014, it was the first time in memory that a major wildfire occurred in the scenic heart of Yosemite, next to Half-Dome.  Capturing the fire as a time-lapse introduced a new dimension to those already most iconic fire images.

For a different perspective on Salomon Beach (see previous post), I stepped into the water, which allowed me to create a strong diagonal with the beach shore. Notice too how photographing backlit creates a silvery water rather than turquoise blue. A GND was used to hold color in the sky.

Salomon Beach, one of the most pretty beaches in Virgin Islands National Park, is relatively quiet because of the need to hike 1 mile to get there. The tree on the left is quite small, I sat down on the sand for this composition, to make sure its palms didn't overlap with the trees fringing the beach.

The aerials previously posted this week were from an airplane, but this one was photographed using my Phantom 2 RC quadcopter. Drones are prohibited in National Parks, but this means only take off and landings. As acknowledged in the NPS directive itself, they do not have authority over airspace. I flew into Biscayne National Park from the nearby Homestead Bayfront Park.

Biscayne National Park hasn't found a new concessionaire in a year, so there is no public transportation to the islands. I couldn't find any affordable boat to rent, even with help of friends from Miami. Instead I hired a pilot for an hour of aerial photography - which cost less and excelled at showing the geography of the place.

Are there photographers in the Miami area who would be interested in sharing a boat rental to go the the keys of Biscayne National Park on Aug 21, 2014 with me ? The concessionaire went out of business last September, so currently a private boat is the only way to go around the park.
