Justin Hill22,601114 HDR Photographers :- Here's my second circle share for the weekend. I have two circles for photographers and this is my second which concentrates on those that indulge in HDR photography. Some in this circle use the technique all the time and others only once in a while. Each and every one of them is a great photographer in their own right which is why I added them and created this circle carefully over time. You won't see much overblown HDR here, they are all very good at what they do and their images prove it. Once again this circle was put together by me and all within it were hand picked due to my likes and preferences. If I have left you out then I am sorry but I simply cannot put everyone I see in a circle so i have been deliberately selective.  Please feel free to add them all to your own circles or pick your way through and select just a few. By all means share if you so wish. Enjoy...2013-10-13 20:19:15114202CC G+

Thomas Hawk6,164,4602,500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 5 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.  Thus far, I've shared last name A-Da, Da-Ho, Ho-Mi and Mi-Sh.  Today's , part 5 of 5, represents Sh-Z. 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 part 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/3vn0OCPart 3-5:  http://goo.gl/lyVn6fPart 4-5:  http://goo.gl/Tq9HCO*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.2013-09-05 16:07:314714531110CC G+

I would to thank each for their help.I have chosen the name of the circle carefully to try to accurately represent the contents of what will be in the two circles. The script / finding namesThe script was provided by CircleCount and looks through the tagline of every profile on CircleCount to find the word "photo" or "foto".  If a photographer doesn't have a CircleCount profile they won't be found.  If one of these two words isn't in their tagline, they won't be found.  A few people I know have fallen into this flaw in my thinking.  To fix this, CircleCount has asked me to provide a "whitelist" of names that the script misses.  The white-list list adds another 30 or so names to the result.   Keyword world a personal viewpointIf you don't use the word photographer to describe yourself how do you expect people to find you in a search. "Searcher of cute pixels", "Creative spirit that makes art out of light"; these might be poetic, they might touch your soul but the world looks for content based on keyword searches.  SEO is going to do the same. Consider carefully the words sou use to describe yourself if you want people to find you using search technology. How was the list processedThe list was sorted by the level of activity.  People that hadn't posted in the last month (approximately April 5 to May 5th) were removed from the list.  This included people that hadn't posted or people that had posted only once in the past 4 weeks.  Again, this has some flaws but I'm mostly happy with the results.  People who are posting only in private communities o2013-05-18 13:17:2050113386127CC G+

This is the circle that I share to when weather conditions appear to be decent for coastal photography. So, if you live north to Marin, south to Big Sur or east to Sacramento... and would like to be included (pinged) when something happens... let me know. I will update this circle over the next week then share it from time to time.~BB2012-10-02 16:55:175036126CC G+

Ryan Lynham11,576Still having trouble finding G+ to be an active photography community?This is a list of the major players in my photography circles. Add this puppy and I think you'll solve your problem. In fact you might be overwhelmed and wish you had only added a few from it, which is another good idea, depending on your sitch, and what not.The standard circle share spiel: If you want to be in this circle and you aren't, then start sharing good photography and participating. Interaction on my posts / posts of people I follow helps, too. Easy peasy. Please don't ask me to add you. Thanks!Cc-ing +Darren LoPrinzi, who was looking for some good folks to follow. : )2012-07-30 18:23:5920234010CC G+

Cynthia Pyun11,332Share a circle DayOk, so I made that one up. But as I've been honored to be a part of several circles in the past, I wanted to share one that I watch all the time. This is my Bay Area circle. Disclaimer, it's not perfect and it's not all of you wonderful people I've met. I did this awhile ago, and am happy to add folks along the way :=)If you live in CA/northern CA and I've had a chance to remember you do, I've probably added you to this circle. It started out because I wanted to see what other photowalks were going to pop up in the area.

Elizabeth Hahn19,891With the anniversary of G+ just a couple weeks away, I went through all the people in my circles, and made one just for people I've HIRL'd with.  This is a circle of 200 that with the exception of one person, I didn't even knew existed a year ago.  (the one person was one of the most recent I have met, too).  If I've forgotten you, please send me a message!!!!!  I've gone through my circles a few times trying to catch everyone.. but I still probably missed someone.I didn't follow any blogs, I didn't follow photographers on that other social network, I pretty much shot on my own.  In the last year I've been on more photowalks than I can count.  (I would guess over 40, but I haven't sat down and really counted).  Some of the folks I've just shook their hand and said hello, other's I've spent days in the desert, mountains and beaches of California with.  There are people from at least 4 different countries, pro photographers, casual hobby photographers, but they all have enough passion for it to get out and share their love of it with others.  While much photography, especially landscape photography is done alone, it also can be a really fun group sport.Add the circle if you wish, pass if you don't.  I just wanted to say thanks to everyone here for changing my view of photography, and help me learn so much in the last year.  You all rock!!!!!2012-06-12 22:22:15200102119CC G+

I'll share a different circle.  Today is the fourth circle and includes photographers with the last name's Ro-Z. A few notes about these circles.  I always get hated on when I share them by people.  Inevitably if I include 2,000 people, I will leave 50,000 people out.  This is not intentional or personal.  This circle is not "the best" photographers on G+ or in the world.  It doesn't mean if you are not in my circle that you are not a "quality" photographer.  This list is simply photographers that I've stumbled across for whatever reason over the past year and have chosen to follow their work.  In some cases I've gotten to know the photographers in this circle personally -- through photowalks and trips, hangouts, in real life, etc.  Many of these people are or have become my friends.  Most of the photographers in my circle though I don't even know.  They are just people whose work I admire and want to consume -- I hope many are future friends.  :)I use some objective criteria with this circle but I use a lot of subjective criteria too.  This is, afterall, my own personal circle that I look at and +1 from every single day.  My aesthetic taste and personal preferences may be very, very different than yours.  This is ok.  Art is subjective.  That said, here a breakdown of my own preferences and biases that influence who I add into my circle.1.  I like people who are active on G+.  If you haven't posted one of your photos in the last month you probably are not in this circle.  I use a script to uncircle inactive people regularly.2.  I like photographers who mostly post their own photographs.  I dislike clutter and "dumb stuff" in my photographers circle.  Excessive reshares, circle shares, memes, gifs, youtube videos, posts not about photography, web links, etc. make me uncircle or move people to a different circle.  I also like photographers who regulate how much of their photography they post to their stream.  I don't want to see 50 shots in a row of someone's vacation.  I think about 5 photos max a day feels about right to me.3.  *Controversial* I dislike signatures and watermarks.  You will find photographers in my circle that use them.  It's just a bias, not a hard and fast rule.  I mostly want this stream to be as watermark/signature free as possible.  I totally understand and respect your reasons and decision for using watermarks/signatures.  I hope you equally respect my decision to not want to consume photos mared up with them.  Please don't turn this into a discussion about watermarks/sigs, I've spent the last 10 years thinking heavily about this issue.  It's just a personal preference and bias.4.  I like people who are active, positive, helpful, enthusiastic G+ community members.  I dislike people who are rude, mean, complainers, trolls, harrasers, etc.  If you say mean things to people, about people, about their art or their work I don't want to follow you.  I'm fine with debate and disagreement.  It should just be done respectfully -- there's a huge difference between respectful disagreement and rude beh2012-06-07 14:58:20499192218468CC G+

Jeff Sullivan41,837The Net Effect of Circle SharingAny time you have the release of such large circles totaling 1500 community members from one with over 880,000 contacts, there will probably be discussions on the pros and cons of circle sharing. At a high level, he added 22,000 contacts yesterday, but if even 500 of his contacts added the circles, 750,000 new connections were made in the community, more than he'll add in a month. I added 500 yesterday, and the 500 people not in his circle shares before probably added much more (so that's a highly conservative estimate). We could second-guess the process, but overall, the community is the beneficiary. Now clearly there are more people which should be recognized and included in circle shares, and many more topics than photography as well, so what I'd like to suggest is that others follow this example and similarly "pay it forward" to the community. Share your own circles, to continue and broaden the interconnection process within the community. Let's make tomorrow a #CircleSharingSunday !What do you think?-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------*+Thomas Hawk * - Yesterday 10:16 AM (edited) - Public*1,500 Kick Ass Photographers on Google+ (P-Z, Part 3 of 3) *1,500 Kick Ass Photographers on Google+ (A-G, Part 1 of 3) http://goo.gl/WGdFw1,500 Kick Ass Photographers on Google+ (G-O, Part 2 of 3) http://goo.gl/1yiS61,500 Kick Ass Photographers on Google+ (P-Z, Part 3 of 3) http://goo.gl/6nLZEI've shared my photographers circle on Google+ two times now. Once when it got to 500 and then again when it got to 1,000. Today my circle hit 1,500 so I'm sharing them again.I have to break them up into 500 person circles because this is the limit on Google+. Also Google limits the number of people you can add to circles per day so I'm going to publish my kick ass photographers circle over 3 days. Today I'm publishing A-G. Tomorrow I'll publish G-O. Friday I'll publish P-Z. By last name.In addition to the kick ass photographers in these circles I've also added three other accounts. Our new photography hangout show which will be on live tonight at 8PM PST +Photo Talk Plus as well as our show's sponsors +Drobo and +SmugMug as a way of saying thanks to them.A few notes about these circles. not to be long-winded, but…Every time I've shared my circles I've gotten haters from it. People who are upset that they are not in them. I absolutely detest that. It makes me not even want to share them because of that. These circles are not meant to be the definitive list of what photographers you should be following on Google+. These circles are simply who I have chosen to follow for photography on Google+ for my own personal consumption. I want to share them because I think YOU may also benefit from having these rich, talented, kick ass photographers in your streams.This is the circle that I browse every single day looking for great stuff to +1 and comment on Google+ and as such it reflects my own personal biases. For example. I hate looking at watermarks. This is a personal preference thing. If you use them, more power to you. It's absolutely your right. But as a consumer of photography I find them ugly and distracting and so I tend not to follow people who use them. This is not a big deal. This is not a personal attack against you if you watermark.

Draining

Another LE from McClure's beach in Point Reyes. I was standing by +Larry Nienkark for this shot (he got a great one too!) up on a rocky promontory that juts out from the beach. There is a perfect view of the huge waves crashing on the rocks from up here.

Alien

This otherworldly seascape comes to you from McClures Beach in Point Reyes National Seashore here in Northern California. I visited this weekend with friends and we had perfect weather. This is from the top of a rocky promontory that juts out from the beach. From up here there were great views of the huge waves. You gain respect for the Sea when you observe how powerful it can be.

Vernazza

I was lucky enough to visit the Cinque Terre (Five Lands) last year. This is one of the five, Vernazza. There is a trail linking all five towns and it is a great one along the Mediterranean coast. Pro tip: You can get Gelato in each town to recover from the hike =D

Went to this park a few weekends ago to see how the water levels were...they were pretty low. Hopefully after the rain storms we are getting the water level will rise.

Mystery

The Cosmos is all that is or was or ever will be. Our feeblest contemplations of the Cosmos stir us -- there is a tingling in the spine,a catch in the voice, a faint sensation, as if a distant memory, of falling from a height. We know we are approaching the greatest of mysteries.
― Carl Sagan, Cosmos

From a Big Sur trip a few weeks ago. This is actually the Sun, not the Moon. I used filters to reduce the light entering the camera by 13 stops and this is what the world looks like after 500 seconds.

Bodgea Head

A couple of weekends ago, I took a trip up to Bodgea Head for a photowalk with a bunch of folks, some familiar and some new. This was my second trip to Bodega Head and besides eating some great Clam Chowder, we had a great day to explore the bluffs and the beaches. As sunset approached, a few wispy clouds started to appear, so we could get an interesting sunset.

Sweet Waves in Pacifica

Sweet waves in Pacifica today!  After checking out Rockaway Beach, we hiked over Mori Point to Pacifica Pier. Forecast was for 15 footers and they sure looked (and felt) pretty big to us!

The Lost Coast

This past Memorial Day we visited The Lost Coast and the Sinkyone Wilderness area. This is an amazing place and somewhat difficult to get to down a one-lane, steep, slippery dirt road. But when you get there, there are no other people and great campsites and trails to explore!

Good Morning

September 1 @ 6:40 AM from Four Jeffrey campground in the Eastern Sierra. A good morning indeed. Up here is was nice and crisp and clear. Down in the valley it was quite smoky and hazy from the Rim Fire up in Yosemite.

Paso Robles Milky Way Crew

We were down near Cambria a few weeks ago and wanted to try and capture the Perseid Meteor shower. Of course it was foggy near the coast, so a few of us ventured up Hwy 46 towards Paso Robles.

After punching through the fog, we pulled over and found a good spot. But withing a few minutes, the fog was moving higher and we had to keep driving higher. We finally made it to the crest and found another great spot, far above the fog.

We spent a few hours here taking lots of pictures and seeing lots of meteors. I didn't catch any in a photograph, but +Ed Sweeney and +Maximilian Laue did. That's ok, I just had fun being out at night, watching the meteors and staring at the Milky Way :)

Hawea Point Sunrise

Sunrise offered a very beautiful spectacle; the water was quite unruffled, but the motion communicated by the tides was so great that, although there was not a breath of air stirring, the sea heaved slowly with a grand and majestic motion.

The View From Coyote Creek

This past weekend we decided to go backpacking in Henry Coe State Park. 4.3 miles and 1,800 ft later we arrived at a nice camp site next to Coyote Creek. This is only one hour from San Jose, but because you are over a ridge or two, there is no traffic noise and we only saw a few planes, so out of flight paths as well. The park is 140 square miles, so you see more wildlife than people.

After setting up camp and exploring the creek, we came back to make dinner and watch the wildlife moving around. I got the camera set up for star trails and this is the result. The weather was perfect so I was able to watch the stars from tent, no rain fly needed :)

Hot Creek Geological Site

During my ski trip to Mammoth Mountain last week, we made a side trip to Hot Creek Geological Site on the Owens River just East of Mammoth. This a really interesting site, with warm spots in the river. You can see various springs bubbling up of various sizes. People used to swim in the river, which isn't allowed anymore. Apparently the temperature of the springs can change quickly and then you get cooked alive...doesn't sound too fun.

There are a few trails to walk and we saw some folks fishing. We walked back up to the bluff along the river and I snapped this picture looking West into the afternoon Sun and Eastern Sierra. Such a great view from over here.​

And so it had been for billions of years. The Sun would set. And the Sun would rise. The waves would roll in, thundering against the shore. As the salt laden air brushed against his face and rustled his hair, he thought, how lucky am I to witness even one of these cycles.

Taste The Rainbow

The Rainbow Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus deglupta) has some of the most colorful bark you will find on a tree. Patches of outer bark are shed annually at different times, showing a bright green inner bark. This then darkens and matures to give blue, purple, orange and then maroon tones.
