Gene Bowker66,106  #Alphabetcircles  - Gene's Active Photographers on G+ *Part One: First Name A-CMeet almost 400 ACTIVE G+ photographers with First Names between A and C.It's that time again, I've been doing Spring Cleaning even though it isn't Spring officially yet here and going through my photography circles again to check out what folks have been sharing and see who is still active on G+.I've visited each of the folks included in this circles within the last week and they have been active in the last month (or so) and regularly post their OWN photography.They come from all over the world and their styles vary as much as their choice of equipment and subject matter.There are a lot of folks in here that I've been friends with for years, but there are also a lot of newer folks who you've probably not met yet and who I am looking forward to getting to know better myself.Criteria1. Actively posting photos on G+2. We circle each other3. Primarily post their OWN photography (that's a judgement call on my part)4. "Safe for work" (another judgement call)Why you should follow them?1. Add active photographers to your stream without a lot of inactive accounts.2. Find some new folks to interact with who are ACTIVE on G+As always.. if you do add them.. the best way to do that is to create a new circle and that way you can watch it and decide if they fit with you or notNot in here?1. Maybe we haven't met yet?  If so, I'd love to hear from you and I'll be sure to check out your stream. Be sure to circle me if you haven't as I check those who add me regularly.2. Maybe you don't post public? If not, there is a good chance that you looked inactive to me.3. Maybe you don't post "primarily" photography... once again that is subjective.Feel free to reshare with your friends if you want, but there are NO requirements to be in this circle except for the criteria above.I'm slowly going through the rest of the Alphabet and as I complete each section I'll be sharing them in this series.  If you follow along you can easily add 1000+ photographers to your stream too.p.s. don't forget tomorrow is  #transporttuesday   Gene Bowker+Rusted Rail Images 2014-03-11 00:18:29394752594CC G+

Thomas Hawk6,156,0612,500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 4 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.  Today's , part 4 of 5, today, represents Mi-Sh.  I'll share the last remaining circle tomorrow.  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/lyVn6f*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.2013-09-04 15:53:284915965104CC G+

Grayson Hartman22,725BIG THANKS TO ALL +Fire Friday CONTRIBUTORS!CIRCLE SHARE OF THE FIRST 503 CONTRIBUTORS TO #FIREFRIDAY Since nearly the beginning of Daily Photography Themes (DPT) on G+, FireFriday has been a place for people to share photographs of anything fire related.  I've had the pleasure of meeting some great people through this DPT and have been absolutely inspired by you all.  I've enjoyed the different takes on the subject and continue to look forward to more of your outstanding contributions to FireFriday.  Also, due to the limit of 500 in a circle-share, the pages +Wandering Shutterbug and +Prometheus Imaging were left out of the circle unfortunately, but your contributions are no less appreciated.  It was the only way I could share the whole circle.Fire Friday:  Anything fire goes-from a wildfire, to a tip of a match shot macro, to even smoke from a fire, fire houses, fire hydrants and fire hoses.

Jan Kabili28,372Sharing circles is a plus for everyone. Nearly every time one of my G+ friends has been kind enough to include my name in a published circle, my follower count has gone up. And making a published circle your own is of course a great way to enjoy new G+ friends. In that spirit, here is my circle of Photoshop and Lightroom enthusiasts. Some are folks I found on G+; others asked to be added. It's all good.2012-06-18 14:32:062669316CC G+
Peter From35,781The Photoshoppers & Lightroomers Circle –– Validated & Revised Version #CircleSharingForThePeoplePLC2 The time has come to reshare my validated and revised Photoshoppers & Lightroomers Circle (PLC) with 500 excellent artists that produce great imagery, compositions, tips etc. 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 stuff to your feeds.If YOU want to hop on the next PLC 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 artwork 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 PLC is a validated quality circle that should bring people great 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 PLC. 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 #CircleSharingForThePeoplePLC2 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!2012-05-21 09:36:07500104117126CC G+
Warren Brooks0A Photoshop/Lightroom circle for anybody interested in getting their social skills on. There should be plenty of inspiration in here.If YOU want to be included in the next reshare of this circle, just do the following: 1) Leave a comment below, 2) reshare this post to spread the word and thus help promote the great people in this circle. And... As always: no reshare, no inclusion –– NO exceptions... Of course, I want to find some quality original content in your feed as well if you want in. If you do not wish to be in the circle, let me know and I will remove you asap.If you already are included in this circle you don't have to reshare this post if you do not wish to do so. I won't throw you out... :) But if you want to reshare anyway, it's much appreciated.Due to some controversy regarding my way of circle sharing, I want to clarify why I want you to reshare this post. To me Google+ is all about sharing and resharing, i.e. promoting yourself and others and NOT feeling bad about it. The more we spread the circle posts, the more people will be able to see YOUR work as well as the work of the other circle members. If you don't like that, fine, I respect that, but that's the way it works in my feed. If it disturbs you, feel free to uncircle me and/or block me, I will respect that too.With that said, enjoy this circle and feel free to ask for an inclusion. Also check out my new page Circle Sharing For The People: +Circle Share.Cheers!2012-04-16 10:22:11233100CC G+

When turtles dream, IF they dream, then why not dream big, right? As soon as I saw this painted turtle, I thought it looked like he was simply waiting for the countdown to end. And how awesome would it be if something as slow and deliberate as a turtle could launch like a rocket?

Clouds

I don't usually photograph clouds, but I saw some interesting formations and thought I'd take a chance at capturing some. This one interested me because even though I was on the ground, it could easily appear to have been taken from above, possibly even from a satellite!

I found working with cloud images interesting and fun, mostly because of the freedom I had to interpret the color and contrast contained in the image. I settled on this interpretation because it represents well what I saw in my mind when I made the shot.

"The Best Camera...
...is the one you have with you."
 
I'm not sure who first said it, but we've all heard it. And now that I have turned in my ancient but everlasting flip phone for a smartphone, I now have a "best" camera.

Locals will quickly recognize this location as #downtown   #denver . It was a beautiful, if windy day and I have to admit, I like the exposure here. I'm still learning the camera but I am satisfied with the initial images I get from it. And hey - it can make phone calls too!

Took this a couple of Saturdays ago when I met with +Howard Weitzel at #rockymountainarsenal . Very cooperative trio of bucks that were busy feeding by the side of the road.

Colorado

Before I met up with +Howard Weitzel this past Saturday, I was looping around the refuge, looking for photo ops. When I came upon this scene I knew I had to try and give it some justice, regardless of my skills (or lack thereof) at #landscapephotography . I am please with the result.

This image represents #colorado  to me in every way. #longspeak , the #bison , the #snowstorm  in the #mountains  while the weather here was fine. Even the buildings infringing on the landscape accurately symbolizes my view of this state.

Hey! I Have One Of Those!

As +Howard Weitzel  has already mentioned, we were out trying to get some eagles at the Arsenal this weekend. And while the eagles we saw were keeping their distance, the sunset decided to show off a bit for us. 

As many of you know, I am not a #landscapephotography  guy. But I was there, I had a working camera, and I saw drama, so I went for it. Howard has an image from a similar perspective in his stream (https://plus.google.com/107403358784201231436/posts/ReLA3Pkt5uB), so don't forget to check that out too.

Funny thing about processing this image - the only saturation and vibrance increases were in the grass to help them compete with the sky! A new experience for me.

Thirsty

This is the #teal I mentioned in my earlier post <https://plus.google.com/117727808769287520310/posts/KVPgtFDR9T9> Surprised me as it was at the back of a flock of mallards in the stream and it was very small! He was very adamant about staying in this particular spot near the bank and I had to wait for him to float out beyond a bend before I could get a chance to take his image. 
Not much post: wb, color and contrast adjustments, sharpening.

Not What I Came For...
...but that's ok! I was looking for <a href="https://plus.google.com/117727808769287520310/posts/RBhHSFfHhxp">this guy</a>, a colorful subject that fellow photographer +Howard Weitzel introduced me to last year. Unfortunately, he was no where to be found. But as I was photographing a green-winged #teal , this #muskrat  appeared from the bank, swam across the stream, grabbed some grass, and swam back!
I knew they were in this area, but it was the first time I've ever seen one.

Not much processing here - some WB and tone adjustments, added a bit of clarity, some NR and sharpening, and then the vignette. Everything done in LR.

Gotcha!
The bird as well as the the fish!
Jittery and very quick to move away before I could get moderately close. Until today, that is! The difference? I was on a bridge and this #greatblueheron  apparently felt confident in the barrier the bridge created between us. I was able to get inside of ~20ft (6m) of her. I could only photograph on a down angle, but he cooperated by tilting her eye towards me whenever I moved.

Quality Time

Most of us don't ever get enough of it.

Taken on a cold, spring day back in April. I was walking through a greenbelt looking for an owl that had been seen nearby. I saw the bridge and was thinking about how I wanted to shoot it when I saw this father / daughter riding a tandem bike. I knew right away that was going to be my image. 

Basic post, nothing more than color and white balance adjustments and some cropping.

The New Land

Capturing this image was quite an incredible life experience for me.  Standing on the edge of the newest land on the planet, overlooking a dried and rolling volcanic landscape that looked very much like a scene from another planet.  The angry hiss of steam and smoke in the air, as molten lava pours into the ocean, constantly battled by relentless waves.  Hot air rising from the ground around me, as the night breeze blew past my face, all under a beautiful starry sky.

Seeing the flowing lava on the Big Island has to be one of the more amazing things I have seen in my life, and it should be on everyone's bucket list.  If you are going to go photograph and see the lava in person, then I would definitely recommend you get a hold of Bruce and Tom over at www.extremeexposure.com.  They are not only two of the nicest guys I have met, but great guides that will goout ... more »

Away

I took this about a month ago while shooting wildlife at Rocky Mountain Arsenal NWF. I really like how the #aircraft  pops against the sky. I enjoy shooting #aviationphotography  and I'd like to attempt more of that in the future. I'm not sure how I'm going to accomplish that, but part of the fun is in the trying!

Like this aircraft, I have been away for a bit. Unlike this aircraft, but very much like it's contents, my absence is not for one particular reason, but an amalgam of them. I will post regularly again, but they won't be as frequent as they have been in the past.

Question for all you Lightroom 5 users:

I have my master images folder selected with no filter on the results, which should show every images in all the folders under that main folder.  Lightroom states that I have 8115 images in the folder but is only showing 7649 images.

Any ideas as to why there is a 400+ item discrepancy between the number of images shown in an unfiltered view and the total number of images in the folder structure?

Masked
"I'm behind this wall of grass so there's no way he's gonna see me."
I first saw this scrawny, little one from behind and did not initially see rings on the tail, so I wasn't sure what it was that was crawling through the grass. (S)he knew that I was there though and kept a key eye on me the entire time. I know they are capable of violent reaction at times, so I kept my distance and gave it room to move. It eventually slipped though a gate, under a small deck, and around the corner of a utility building.

Beauty
Hardly the prettiest tree around, this subject struck me as photo worthy. I'm still trying to figure out why: the solitude, the contrast of the immense top versus the rather skinny bottom, the defiance against the wind, the greens and blues. I can't put my finger on it, but I am drawn to it, so I will study it. Probably for a lot longer than I should. And I may not even have an answer when I am done. But that's part of the beauty of photography - the discovery.

Pushmi-Pullyu
It is kind of how I feel after being away and trying to get caught up now that I am back. 
I took this last year on Mt. Evans. Their position reminded me of the pushmi-pullyu in Doctor Doolittle. I converted to b&w to simplify the image and keep the viewers attention from being distracted.

I need the help of the photography community: I left my Manfrotto tripod, Gitzo ballhead, and leveling base at Aunt Sarah's Falls (parking lot across the road) in Montour Falls, NY today. The parking lot is on the right side of the road between the village of Montour Falls and Watkins Glen, about 1/8 mile before you reach Chef's Diner. Hoping a good soul found it and is looking for the owner. :)

_Am I Turtle-y Enough...
...for the Turtle Club?_ 

This #greatblueheron  was hunting along the shore of a small lake among a rather large group of  #paintedturtle s (I counted at least 12). I don't believe the turtles were being hunted because the heron passed up a few to get to this spot. That being said, the turtles passed by were larger and the heron seemed to lose interest after the small turtle near him swam away. Best viewed LARGE!

Memorial Day

Sorry for the late post, but I was on a self-imposed hiatus for the past holiday weekend. Nothing serious, just needed. 

I took this on a photowalk with many area photographers about a year or so ago. It came out exactly as I had hoped when I first saw that the statue, flag, and capitol had the potential to lineup for a nice image. 

Holidays like Memorial Day and Veterans Day are special. Observing them is an honor.

Intensity
These two, plus another owlet that remained hidden for much of the time I was there, are roosted in a cavity of a red rock in the western suburbs. It was a short, but entirely uphill, hike on a well-used trail to get to the location. 
I allowed the FG to go overexposed in order to get enough light into the cavity and then brought the FG back in post. Make sure you view it LARGE!

Fair warning to photographers, auto enhance is on by default in the new G+ design. Every photo you upload gets modified by default. I'd seriously suggest turning off the setting in the main G+ settings page.

Look At How Big I Am!
This cormorant was trying to get on the nerves of a nearby pelican, but it didn't work.
The light was harsh, so I chose to blow out the surrounding area and go High Key. A little post to save the beak and a choice to let a few of the bluer streaks of water in for some subtle context and here we are. Nothing to be done on the feathers; as I said, harsh light and the cormorant was still wet from the antagonizing swim past the pelican.

Hey, When Did You Get Here?
No one knows the official story of how Sloan's Lake was created and I have no idea why I always thought pelicans were strictly a coastal bird, but no matter - I am glad both are here.
Alone for now, I hope to see the rest of the colony, if there is one. This one was not upset at the gull but at a cormorant that swam by. I did capture that moment, but I liked this image much better. 
Next goal - catching them in-flight.

Lakewood, CO
This is another image in my quest to document the state of  #colorado . I don't really know where this project is going to go, mostly because I haven't yet defined it. I just know it is something I am motivated to do, and all of you get to see some of what I create while I suss out the scope and meaning of the project.
