Photowalks Hamburg421(english version below)Es freut uns, dass es +Holger Steinmann gelungen ist, uns als Treffpunkt am Samstag wieder das Auditorium im Haus der Photographie, Deichtorhallen zu organisieren :)Wie auch letztes Jahr wird der Eingang seitlich auf der Fleetseite direkt in den Raum führen - wenn man vor dem Haupteingang steht, quasi rechts am Gebäude vorbei.Wir starten dort um 10:30h mit Begrüßung, kurze Vorstellung der Route und ein paar Vorträgen, die wir noch rechtzeitig bekannt geben werden.Gegen etwa 12:00h werden wir dann das obligatorische Gruppenfoto vor dem Haus schießen und dann den ersten Streckenteil angehen. Dieser führt uns über das Chilehaus und den Domplatz/Speersort zur Mönckebergstraße und Spitalerstraße, durch den Hauptbahnhof, am Schauspielhaus und Ohnsorg Theater vorbei über ein kleines Stück St. Georg zum Hotel Atlantic und zur Alster.Dort, am Alsteranleger, werden wir um 14:21h den Alsterdampfer auf die andere Seite zur Rabenstraße nehmen. Kosten für den Alsterdampfer: € 1,70Route: http://goo.gl/pLK90GAn der Rabenstraße angelangt geht es dann über Alsterpark in Richtung Milchstraße, an St. Johannis vorbei zum Völkerkundemuseum (mit chinesischem Kulturzentrum), über das Uni-Gelände zum Dammtor, dort rein zu Planten un Blomen, um dort, je nach Wetterlage, eine längere Runde zu drehen und den Photowalk langsam zu beenden.Route: http://goo.gl/5t0d5fDie Gesamtlänge beträgt etwa 6 Kilometer. Für alle, die dann noch Lust haben auf einen gemeinsamen Abendausklang, werden wir dann irgendwo im Karoviertel essen gehen. Je nach Teilnehmeranzahl haben wir dort mehrere Optionen ausgemacht.Für alle eher am „klassischen“ Hamburg interessiert, werden wir uns am Sonntag in der Speicherstadt Kafferösterei  zwischen 10:00h und 11:00h zum Frühstück/Kaffee treffen, um dann gegen 11:30h auf eine durch +Andy Bitterer geführte Tour durch die Speicherstadt und Hafencity zu starten: über Pickhuben und Alter Wandrahm zur meistfotografierten Brücke Hamburgs, Blick auf das Spiegelhaus, über maritimes Museum zum Sandtorpark und über die Marco-Polo-Terrassen zur Elbphilharmonie.Route: http://goo.gl/NfQjCbDie Gesamtlänge: etwa drei Kilometer.Wir freuen uns auf Euch!ENGLISH VERSIONWe‘ll meet up saturday from 10:30h at the „House of Photography“, where we can use the auditorium for some short talks by photographers and some organizational stuff. Group photo outside around 12:00h and then we‘ll move via architectural landmark Chilehaus through the buzzing inner city of Hamburg, crossing the main station and walk down to the Outer Alster lake, which we will cross with the boat at 14:21h (costs: €1.70).Route: Hamburg Photowalk 2013 - International Participants welcome2013-09-14 10:30:0056 
paradigmblue7,957EDIT:  This event is now closed.  A huge thanks to all who particiapted.  Be sure to add everyone below to your circles - they're all awesome :)Hi peeps,Welcome to #ParadigmShift #3 :)First of all, a massive THANK YOU to all who participated in #ParadigmShift #2 - it was so much fun seeing all the different post processing pics you came up with.For #ParadigmShift  #3, I'm choosing an image close to my heart.  A few weeks ago, my brother +Dave Tomek and I went on a photowalk around #PortMelbourne   #Australia  - such a beautiful place to photograph.  One of the best known locations is #PrincesPier  - it's an absolute photogs delight.  That is, if you manage to dodge all the fishermen and other photogs in the area :)  For the history of the place, check out the Wikipedia article here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Princes_PierThe posts in the water are what used to be the extension of the original pier - it would've been huge as behind me still stands a rather large pier.The RAW file was taken during the blue hour:Filter: ND400Shutter: 50 secsISO: 50F /13Shot on a Canon 6D (24-104mm) - focal length @ 24mmSo there is plenty to pull out of the RAW file (linked below).  As always, I look forward to your edits.  Please play by the rules :)The Rules- Share this event on your public stream.  My goal here is for all your circles to know about this and participate if they're interested.  - If the above is not done and a pic is submitted into the event, I have grounds to delete it.  That sounds harsh I know - but I want this thing to grow and get out there :)  It's a small thing to do for access to a RAW file to edit and submit.- Go nuts and edit, crop, process whatever floats your boat - bring out the best of the image according to how you see it.  But try to steer clear of using Photoshop to merge the image with others.- Please note, I still retain ownership of copyright on the image as I took it :)- Post you edit into the event using the "Add Photos" option in the upper right.- In addition to posting your edit into the event, post it on your public feed and tag me +paradigmblue so that I can find it.  Be sure to tag it with #ParadigmShift #32013-05-03 01:00:0043

Georges Pauly14,521Thomas HawkShared publicly  -  30 Aug 2013 2500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 2 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.  Yesterday I shared last name A-Da.  This one , part 2 of 5, today, represents Da-Ho.  I'll share the remaining three next week.  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 3, 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/17ujpn*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.2013-09-01 19:56:06482204

Curating Content on Google+0The new Pʜᴏᴛᴏɢʀᴀᴘʜʏ ENGAGERS Cɪʀᴄʟᴇ is out!    [Mar 21, 2013]Record participation again last week!!  +1s, comments, and shares!  WOW!!Quick start instructions:➀  post a URL link to a G+ photo in the comments below,➁  check out some photos from others and +1 and comment on them,➂  publicly share this circle-post, from a new friend's stream (instead of ours)➃  add this circle, and replace it every week.You will get a comment from us and be added (or stay in) the circle share next week!  Questions?  Ask in comments below - you'll get help!Full story: This circle is for meeting engaging G+ users about photography.  The interaction happens in the comments and re-shares.  Post a link to a photo from your stream during the last week in the comments below.  It can be your photo or someone else's.  Then from the comments here, check out someone's link, and comment on / critique that photo.  Try to pick someone new each week, so you will meet new people and make new friends (more than 1 is ok too).  Re-sharing their circle-share helps them learn about Ripples!Results: your photos will get more exposure, you will be circled more, and you'll find active people to add to your stream.  Re-sharing this circle is highly recommended, and some form of engagement is mandatory.  That will result in a curated circle that's always fresh!  If you drop out for any reason, you can get back in at any time by adding content & engaging in the current weekly circle!We respond with up to 3 ☑ next to your name: 1 for linking your photo, 1 for sharing the circle, and 1 for a +1 on this post.  The circle will always have the people who interacted the most over the last 3 weeks.This will be done every Thursday.  It is for active G+'ers that want more interaction and exposure. This is a hybrid idea, taking the best parts of circle sharing, communities, and G+, and rolling them into one!Biggest Ripple last week: +Ree Saunders with 6!  The runner up was +Paul Paradis with 5.  Nice work to those that helped them!  The average share-chain (ripple) for the whole group was 2.47...  lower than last week, but we had many more shares, so still an improvement! Top Influencers last week: +Ludovic Moreeuw, +Michael Sonntag, +Ree Saunders, and +Paul Paradis.  Special thanks to you all too!See http://goo.gl/ldooJ for full details! #publiccirclesproject #ph2013-03-21 16:56:39422329104139

Thomas Hawk4,072,391Congratulations to the first 100 contributors to the Light Box.  All 108 of these photographers have had images voted into the Light Box.   The Light Box is a fun new dynamic photography community on Google+ http://goo.gl/jisrZ  where photographers submit their photos for voting/critique by their peers.  10 saves and the photo is voted into the Light Box.  10 deletes and the photo is rejected.  Check it out if you have some time (remember to vote on 15 photos before submitting your own).  These 108 photographers are talented, active community members who you might like to get to know. Check out the great work they've had voted in so far here:  http://goo.gl/c45MQI'll share this circle again when we get to 200.  :)2012-12-10 18:36:14108241470

Gene Bowker41,227Are you a "D" photographer? #Alphabetcircles    Complete series at https://plus.google.com/111112809838472063992/posts/2xWjDgvHT5tThe new #Streamcircle  Alphabet series:I'm going through each persons stream to see what they have been up to. and continuing to sort my 2000+ photog circle into smaller ones based on first name this time.Aiming to share folks who are active no matter what their photography type or number of followers.. so there are all types in here.The folks in this circle have all been active in the last month , share their own work, and their first names start with "D". There are quite a few who don't follow me but whose work I've discovered.Note: No one asked, begged, or had to do anything to be in these circles except be an active G+ photographer who I happen to follow.That being said, why share circles you are included in?It will help you be seen by different folks. It is amazing when I see how few people I follow in common with even my closest friends and I follow around 2500 people. There are so many good photographers on G+ that it is impossible to find them all.  Shares help make those introductions."D"elighted to know you+Gene Bowker http://rustedrailimages.comWould you like to be in the next circle set?1) Be sure to circle me.2) Be active. Post regularly...3) Be interactive. Respond to comments, etc...4) Be yourself. Post your own stuff, not just reshares.5) Be sure to introduce yourself. Stop by one of my posts and say hi.6) Feel free to share the current circles. (not required but really appreciated)In the end, I make the final calls on who gets in or not based on my own judgement. That is why I'm happy to put my name on them.2012-09-25 22:39:58167682153

Jeff Sullivan131,363Daily Photography Themes on G+: Curators Circle v1.0Daily photo themes can be a great way to share your best work, or to find creative work by others for enjoyment and inspiration.Lists of the daily themes, with notes on any participation details, are maintained by the following people:+Eric Leslie - http://ericleslie.com/guides/daily-photography-themes-googleplus/+Kol Tregaskes - http://bit.ly/kolgplusphotodailyhashtags+Ray Bilcliff - http://www.trueportraits.com/daily-photo-themes.htmJust Include the theme like today's #SelflessSunday in the text of your post, and others can find it in searches and you can enter that tag in the search box at the top of the page to find photos by other contributors.  However, that only works if many people using a theme are looking at (and commenting on) each others' posts.  On G+, like in so many areas in life, you get what you give.I've created two circles: one containing theme pages and this one containing theme curators.  Theme curators are among the most active photographers (or photography lovers) on G+, but if they're actively curating their theme, visiting most or all posts and interacting with many (comments, +1s, shares), they're also among the busiest, especially as the G+ community grows.  Keep your expectations of them reasonable and you won't be disappointed.  The golden rule, karma, "what goes around comes around"... take responsibility and be the interaction you want to see.  As people come to recognize your comments and posts, you'll get to know people and develop circles of community members to interact with on G+.This is intended to be a comprehensive, inclusive circle, so if I've missed a theme curator please let me know, thanks!2012-07-08 15:27:4433222730

Scott Jarvie76,297236 Ambassadors for PhotographyAt the beginning of the month +Photography Decathlon asked for suggestions for who should represent each of the 10 styles of photography that will be represented at this years competition in October. (Teach and judge.)The post was well received getting 400+ shares and many hundred comments on several different shares.There were 536 suggestions (thankfully many repeated) and in the end these 236 photographers.I should shareIt dawned on me that people out there really believe in these photographers and therefore a shared list/circle of these people would truly be of a great benefit to all.Add Shared CirclePerhaps you're already following most of them, perhaps only a few... I suggest you, create a little circle and try them all out, I'll bet you'll find some hidden gems like I have.Stay tuned for newsAnd of course our committee is going through the suggestions to find a photographer for each of these fields. Someone that knows their photography and knows how to inspire.We hope you're looking forward to October whether in person or by our videos... follow us at +Photography Decathlon 2012-06-21 22:25:46236834870

Peter From36,228The CAPTURE THE NATURE Circle –– Validated First Version #CircleSharingForThePeopleCNCVF The time has come to reshare my validated first revision of the Capture The Nature Circle (CNC) with 463 excellent artists that produce great nature photography. You don't want to miss this one. I am proud to promote these great people and I am sure they will bring lots and lots of great and interesting images to your feeds.If YOU want to hop on the next CNC train, do the following:1. Help spread the word and reshare this circle post. Why? If you think you should be promoted, you should be willing to do the same for your fellow artists. Simple as that.2. Ask for inclusion in the comments. I will check every feed.3. Make sure that you share your own original nature photography in your feed. If there are too many reshares of other peoples' work, irrelevant YouTube clips, animated GIFS, blog post teasers etc., I might not add you to the circle. The CNC is a validated quality circle that should bring people great nature imagery to their feeds.NOTE! If you see that I have plussed your comment, then you know that I have added you to the next revision of the CNC. I didn't PLUS your comment? Make sure that you have reshared this circle post and let me know that you did so.HOW TO AVOID FLOODING OF THIS POST IN YOUR FEED:This post is hash-tagged with #CircleSharingForThePeopleCNCVF so that you may mute the reshares this post will generate. That way you will avoid seeing multiple copies of this post in your feed and your adrenaline level will stay normal. I will add a new hash-tag for every announcement and circle post. That way you won't miss out on any of the action but still can mute all the duplicate reshares. Here is an excellent add-on that will help you to mute the reshares: http://code.google.com/p/nonplus/Cheers!2012-05-28 11:01:11463125156134

Paul Scott966Theme Day Database and Shared Curators Circle.I'm very new to Google+ but as a photographer I quickly realised that this is THE platform to meet and share with like minded people. The only problem is that when it comes to theme days it can be a bit baffling at first...there seem to be so many of them.This post is for anyone like me who would like to contribute to daily photographic themes but never know what's going on on a given day. Hopefully I can save you a bit of time. I have created a list of all the themes I have encountered so far https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Atbm_UjW1h0kdGM2R2JSVDhUSUFaTm9yU0JsaTlvSHcThere's also a form in case anyone knows of any other good theme days https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dHV3NlQybF9ORFU5eGIxYlEyLXQzaWc6MQ. This is just what I am using at the moment, I have only submitted to these themes so far ( #portraittuesday by +Laura Balc , #monochromemonday curated by +Bill Wood and +Hans Berendsen , #subtlesundaylandscapes curated by +Steve Sieren , #sacredsunday curated by +Charles Lupica , +Manfred Berndtgen and +Bill Wood, and #fidofriday curated by +Wes Lum , +mel peifer & +Lisa Lisa ) but would thoroughly recommend them all. These are a lovely bunch of talented people that take the time to look at and share your work.I don't know about the other theme days yet as I haven't yet contributed. If any one has any recommendations for which are most active then please do mention them or simply use the form to flag interest.And here is my circle of all the Curators I have picked up on so far so share this circle and get involved!PS The idea to share in this way was inspired by +Chris Porte2012-02-22 15:38:0715729112

making me laugh is hard enough ... and you did that most brilliantly !

yet you changed my life: for that I am ever grateful. I would not be the person I am today if it would not be for this movie.

O Captain, my Captain..... R.I.P.

Teachers pride !

Downtown Miami
It's been a while that I posted a photo, partly because I was on holidays and my only New Year's Resolution was not to post unprocessed photos anymore ;)

So, to kick off 2014, I give you Downtown Miami, based on what I've learned from +Dirk Heindoerfer's interesting lecture about night photography. I hope you'll like it.

In Taipei it is tradition to watch the fireworks at Taipei 101. This year 1.15 Million people were watching.

It is also tradition to judge the fireworks. So which one was your favorite ?

Shopping Hell

Sometimes you have to hand it to the Germans. They are open, honest and straight forward. And in Hamburg, they show that very publicly.

I mean having a shopping mall in a red building with medieval symbolism, guarded by a demon ?

Gentleman, if you follow your wife in here, consider yourself being warned.

A stunning article about the magic of postprocessing in the pre digital age, by one of the wizards you probably never heard of. Pablo Inirio, the master darkroom printer who works at Magnum Photos‘ New York headquarters.

I think this hashtag is good enough for the SPOILER ALERT

After watching the first season on HBO i inhaled the books, and on more than one occasion i was asking myself: how they are gonna bring that to the screen ?

I guess since yesterday I have my answer.

Kudos to HBO and the production team to pull this off. Cannot wait to see more.

Ever wanted to try out Long Exposure photography, but dont have the big filters yet ?

Well here is your chance, not for taking the pic, but try your hands on some LE post processing. +paradigmblue is so kind in let you play with a georgeous photo. Come and join the fun.

Hi peeps,

Welcome to #ParadigmShift #3 :)

First of all, a massive THANK YOU to all who participated in #ParadigmShift #2 - it was so much fun seeing all the different post processing pics you came up with.

For #ParadigmShift  #3, I'm choosing an image close to my heart.  A few weeks ago, my brother +Dave Tomek and I went on a photowalk around #PortMelbourne   #Australia  - such a beautiful place to photograph.  One of the best known locations is #PrincesPier  - it's an absolute photogs delight.  That is, if you manage to dodge all the fishermen and other photogs in the area :)  For the history of the place, check out the Wikipedia article here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Princes_Pier

The posts in the water are what used to be the extension of the original pier - it would've been huge as behind me still stands a rather large pier.

The RAW file was taken during the blue hour:

Filter: ND400
Shutter: 50 secs
ISO: 50
F /13
Shot on a Canon 6D (24-104mm) - focal length @ 24mm

So there is plenty to pull out of the RAW file (linked below).  As always, I look forward to your edits.  Please play by the rules :)

The Rules

- Share this event on your public stream.  My goal here is for all your circles to know about this and participate if they're interested.  

- If the above is not done and a pic is submitted into the event, I have grounds to delete it.  That sounds harsh I know - but I want this thing to grow and get out there :)  It's a small thing to do for access to a RAW file to edit and submit.

- Go nuts and edit, crop, process whatever floats your boat - bring out the best of the image according to how you see it.  But try to steer clear of using Photoshop to merge the image with others.

- Please note, I still retain ownership of copyright on the image as I took it :)

- Post you edit into the event using the "Add Photos" option in the upper right.

- In addition to posting your edit into the event, post it on your public feed and tag me +paradigmblue so that I can find it.  Be sure to tag it with #ParadigmShift 

- Please don't provide a link to the original RAW file in your public posts.

- And in the words of +Debashis Talukdar " it's worth reiterating that this is not to establish the right or wrong way of treating and image, but more an exercise in exploring how different individuals would interpret the treatment of an image." - Couldn't have said it better - so I won't :)

- The event is good to go as you're reading this so don't wait and get to it!  Ends on Sunday 05/05 and the RAW file will be deleted.

- And most importantly have fun!  Be sure to add peeps who contribute to this into your circles - they're all awesome :)

If our parents would had G+

I really enjoy being on G+. I got to see so many beautiful places I probably will never have the chance to see with my own eyes. Yet I could if I jump on a plane. Yet sometimes I ask myself how these places would have been years ago.
So what if our parents would have had social media already? Well obviously they did'nt, yet the photos are out there.
So lets get them out and share a world already gone.

Hadouken the new Internet Meme ?

Sometimes I am really amused about the constant hunger of media for the next thing on the internet. We had Gangam Style, then came the Harlem shake and now the proclaimed new thing is Hadouken.

Already the buzz is out there:

yet all started with a single tweet from a kid in Japan 4 day ago, retweeted 8787 times : https://twitter.com/assassin3120/status/316511171349979136

Great Buddha Hall (大仏殿 Daibutsuden)

Tōdai-ji, Nara, Japan

Sometimes a photography cannot grasp the sheer size of the object in front of the lens. So lets give it some background.

Todai-ji Temple complex:
- built between 728 and 751
- houses a 16m (52ft) Buddha statue in the great Buddha hall
- more than 2,6 million people built the hall and the buddha
- Japan nearly bankrupted, because nearly all bronze was used for the statue (500 tons)
- the current Buddha hall (see picture) has been finished in 1709, after fire destroyed the complex twice.
- 57m long and 50 m wide
- biggest wooden building in the world up until 1998

Great Buddha Hall (大仏殿 Daibutsuden)

Tōdai-ji, Nara, Japan

Sometimes a photography cannot grasp the sheer size of the object in front of the lens. So lets give it some background.

Todai-ji Temple complex:
- built between 728 and 751
- houses a 16m (52ft) Buddha statue in the great Buddha hall
- more than 2,6 million people built the hall and the buddha
- Japan nearly bankrupted, because nearly all bronze was used for the statue (500 tons)
- the current Buddha hall (see picture) has been finished in 1709, after fire destroyed the complex twice.
- 57m long and 50 m wide
- biggest wooden building in the world up until 1998
- still biggest roofed wooden building in the world.
- 30% smaller than the initial hall___
