Margaret Tompkins100,702>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Great Photographers With < 5,000 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 < 5,000 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.  Many 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!#Circleshare   #Sharedcircles  2014-02-04 15:25:5048825646112

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

Gene Bowker41,317Are you an "E" photographer? #Alphabetcircles  Complete series at https://plus.google.com/111112809838472063992/posts/2xWjDgvHT5tThe new #StreamCircle  Alphabet series: I'm going through the streams of each photographer I follow 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.I am aiming to share photographers 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 "E".There are quite a few who don't follow me (yet I hope) but whose work I've discovered recently.Note: No one asked, begged, or had to share 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.Would 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."E"xcellent to know ya'll.+Gene Bowker http://rustedrailimages.com2012-09-26 16:27:286840735

Firefighting trains us to sleep light and wake at a moment’s notice with our physiology on alert. Those habits don’t exactly play nice with our sleep hygiene. Of the four stages of sleep, the most important stage for restoring physical vitality is the fourth, when our brain is emitting delta waves. But it takes time for our body to unwind through the three lighter stages and reach that deep level of sleep. Furthermore, our emotional health depends on a stage even deeper than delta – the REM stage, when we dream.

I then open the albums up to the public - every morning over the course of 10 days. 
Later today I will be posting the winners from this album.
There are 10 categories: This is the "*RED FRUIT*" album. 
See my profile page to check out the "Pig", "Childhood Memory","Ice Cream Cone", "Sour", "Peace", "Your Worst Habit" and the "Your City" albums, already up.

This event is an amazing way to use your camera in new ways. 
It gets you seeing things in new ways,
It helps improve your photography skills, 
gives you a huge audience, 
and let's everyone celebrate each other's successes. 
Make new friends,
and be a part of a community of photographers who care about each other, teach each other, and inspire one another.

The sign up for the next round of the scavenger hunt will be announced on day 10 of reveals from this round.

The group of "scavengers" that participate create a community unlike any other on G+. 
Support, encouragement  friendships even some #huntsmack is enjoyed. 
We become a family over the course of the month. 

This is a negative-free zone - I have zero tolerance for any critiques that are uninvited. 
Please be respectful and remember that every person went out there and took the time to shoot these images 
and put thought into them and tried their best. 
As always, I am proud of every single one of you.

(NONE of the images were taken by ME - this is a collection of images taken by multiple photographers participating in the scavenger hunt. All copyrights apply)

With that - I present to you the "*RED FRUIT*" album,
1 item seen in 285 different ways.

from the 2014 SUMMER SENSATIONAL round
of the +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt!!!

What  is the scavenger hunt?
Only the most inspiring, creative and fun way to learn your camera, push your limits, experiment, and shoot things in ways you didn't think you could.

I host this event every season for anyone of any level of photography to participate.
I open the game up to 500 Photographers
I give you 10 items to shoot 
I give you a period of time to shoot and enter your photos.
Then I have them judged by amazing photographers
(this round's judges were +Mike F Shaw +Robin Griggs Wood +Ron Clifford +mel peifer, and our winner from last round - +Mark Rodriguez 

I then open the albums up to the public - every morning over the course of 10 days. 
Later today I will be posting the winners from this album.
There are 10 categories: This is the first - the "*CHILDHOOD MEMORY" album. 
See my profile page to check out the "Ice Cream Cone", "Sour", "Peace", "Your Worst Habit" and the "Your City" albums, already up.

This event is an amazing way to use your camera in new ways. 
It gets you seeing things in new ways,
It helps improve your photography skills, 
gives you a huge audience, 
and let's everyone celebrate each other's successes. 
Make new friends,
and be a part of a community of photographers who care about each other, teach each other, and inspire one another.

The sign up for the next round of the scavenger hunt will be announced on day 10 of reveals from this round.

The group of "scavengers" that participate create a community unlike any other on G+. 
Support, encouragement  friendships even some #huntsmack is enjoyed. 
We become a family over the course of the month. 

This is a negative-free zone - I have zero tolerance for any critiques that are uninvited. 
Please be respectful and remember that every person went out there and took the time to shoot these images 
and put thought into them and tried their best. 
As always, I am proud of every single one of you.

(NONE of the images were taken by ME - this is a collection of images taken by multiple photographers participating in the scavenger hunt. All copyrights apply)

With that - I present to you the "*CHILDHOOD MEMORY*" album,
1 item seen in 285 different ways.

In capturing this scene, I wanted to first work on long exposure techniques to capture the water and cloud movements.  I purchased a ND10 filter about a year ago and really haven't gotten to play with it much.  The times I have, I was disappointed with my work.  I've found even with the 10 stop reduction, it's still pretty bright when trying to capture the cloud movement in broad daylight.  My next attempt will be during an nice sunset at a sportsmen's lake near my house.

I also wanted to play with luminosity masks and digital blending of exposures.  I'm not happy with the HDR software and other methods to auto-blend exposures.  There's just too many artifacts that aren't acceptable to the perfectionist in me.  So I wanted to give it some effort manually.  I used the articles and luminosity masks provided by +Jimmy McIntyre on his blog.

I haven't shared the originals but I have to say, I'm pretty pleased.  I've used Jimmy's techniques on some other shots I've taken in the past and really like the results so far.  Once I get some more time to play around, I'll share some more.___

I can't imagine the anguish these Brothers will live with, knowing they couldn't save the trapped firefighters.  I can hear the pain in their words.

May Firefighter Kennedy and Lt. Walsh rest in peace and may their families and friends find some solace knowing they gave their lives as heroes.

Rest easy, Brothers.
