Gailen Mapes76,186*Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera B - 2 of 30Note: 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 February 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting January 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             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-02-02 11:51:36125203

James Honzik29,206Sharers Meta-circle X:  This is a super circle, a meta circle of active  circle sharers, focusing on photography and art. This is version X. Leaner,  better, faster, wilder.  It's the only circle I share, and it's a good one. (and if you could, please look at my art and photography, that's why I do this - scroll down, I have lots of new and old good things)Thanks to everyone who looked, shared, and commented. (especially those who told me my last share could not be shared, sorry.)Special kudos out to those who not only share, but post their own good things.Some of my best work is now up for sale on http://fineartamerica.com/profiles/james-honzik.htmlThanks, everybody.Peace.

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             #handpickedcirclesNote: the hash tag #handpickedcircles  should only be used to refer to these circles and other circles created by +Gailen Mapes .   Thanks for your cooperation.2015-01-02 11:22:54129011

Guido Bibra4,763Circle Share #2: Photography OneThis is the first part of my "big" hand-picked photographer circles. Everybody from the Essentials circle is also in here, plus everyone I noticed in other circles, who plussed or commented on my posts or who I learned to know through other people. If you're not in there, either I haven't noticed you yet or you don't fulfil my one requirement: you have to post your own work. There are only original photography content creators in here!2014-12-30 16:41:23500000
Guido Bibra4,763Circle Share #1: Photography EssentialsLike at the end of last year, I want to say thanks to all the amazing people here on Google+ by sharing a few of my circles, which is easier said than done because my own circle collection is pretty chaotic. This first one is my "small" Photography circle of people I mainly found in the beginning over two years ago, although the size of this circle has doubled in the last twelve months. These are people whose posts I don't want to miss even when I don't have time to look at all the other circles. Don't be disappointed if you're not in there - there are two much bigger photo circles coming up next!2014-12-30 16:36:31269000

Gailen Mapes72,604Hand Picked Photographers Circles - Canon Camera B - 2 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 December 1st for the start of this set.  (Previous complete set was published starting November 7th.)  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.2014-12-02 11:40:22131001

Tomorrow is #TransportTuesday  hosted by +Annie Irving and myself where we are looking for your #transport  shots from around the world.

This is from last week in Chicago at McCormick Place.  

The choice is escalators or stairs depending on your need for speed and/or exercise level.

Hope you will share a shot with us this week on +TransportTuesday

I wandered around the McCormick Center before the show opened on Wednesday.  I really liked how the morning light cast shadows through the giant windows facing the lakeshore.

Made with the Canon G1X. No editing and shot in BW 1:1 #photosquared  mode.

Windy City

The wind was blowing this afternoon in #Chicago  while I was waiting for the EL to arrive on the loop.

Riding the EL has been one of the highlights of this week's work trip to Chicago.  It sure does a good job of delivering lots of people in a small amount of time.

Going Down

For #TransportTuesday  this week, something a little different.

This diving bell was used in the 1800s to protect gold miners underwater in the North Georgia Mountains.  Personally, I can't imagine working in one of these for hours at a time, 

Since it was transported by barge and transported the divers to the bottom (they climbed in via a really small tube at the top) it is the most #transport  related shot I made this week.

Join +Annie Irving and myself each week for +TransportTuesday where we celebrate transportation of all types and eras.

Never Alone

Had a nice roadtrip today with +Patrice Christian up to Dahlonega, #GA  in the North Georgia mountains.

One of the stops we made was at the Mt. Hope Cemetery which is located behind the Campus of the University of North Georgia.

I'm always fascinated by the decorations placed on plots, especially the prevalent use of angels.  This angel will never be alone with at least 6 more friends around.

Downtown this afternoon I found myself walking around this circle seeing how the light hitting it from different angles changed the contrast and shadows.

An Old Georgia Girl

The drive-in restaurant has closed but the sign still remains, if in disrepair.

It must of been impressive when it was lit by neon along old US17 between Jacksonville and Brunswick, #Georgia .

When I see old signs like this, it makes me want to restore them to their old glory where they could be appreciated by new generations. 

This shot was made in December 2014, but is submitted as my first shot for #52weeksofwhim  facilitated by +Susan Porter

The end of 2014

My last train shot for 2014 was taken last weekend in Jesup, #Georgia where NS4002 awaits transfer back to its owner +Norfolk Southern Corp at the recently restored CSX and +Amtrak depot.

I enjoyed the chance this year to photograph trains across Georgia and South Carolina. Next year, I hope to capture more trains across the Eastern United States.

I hope everyone has a great New Years and see you in #2015.

Glad to be off for the next week.  No big plans, just staying around the ATL area.

Here's a shot from last weekend at Paradise Garden on my trip up there with +Patrice Christian 

The Christmas tree was covered with these ornaments. and I loved the shapes against the green of the tree.

BEST OF +TransportTuesday 2014 Edition

Today we are celebrating another great year of #TransportTuesday  and asking everyone to share their favorite shot(s) from 2014 with us. It's a great way to look back at another fun year.

+Annie Irving and I will be taking a few weeks off, but we will be returning on 1/13/2014 with another fun year of #Transport  photography from around the world!

I didn't have to think hard to decide which photograph was my favorite new shot for #2014.  It was made in April 2014 in Folkston, Georgia during the annual Railwatch event.  The +Amtrak engineers added a patriotic touch to their pass of the crowd and helped to show off "America's Railroad".  

So what photo are you going to pick to share?

Have a great holidays and thanks as always for supporting #transportTuesday

Had a fun time with +Patrice Christian Friday Night at Oakland Cemetery on their Capturing the Spirit of Oakland tour.

This was shot in almost total darkness with the EOS-M and cranked up to 6400 ISO.

Nothing was sharp, but it was all handheld and I was amazed at how well the camera picked up what little light was available.

This years tours are sold out, but they are a blast if you get a chance to go.

One from the road...

I had never noticed the sign pointing to the Red Oak Creek Covered Bridge in Central Georgia before, but luckily it caught my eye this time when I was driving back to Atlanta on Tuesday evening.

I scouted the bridge to hopefully revisit sometime when the light is a little less harsh.  Here is an edited shot from my cellphone.

Hope everyone is doing well and hope to get back to posting more when work calms down some.

A repost after +Sandra Parlow and +Susan Porter 's great posts

Learning myself through life and Google+ #whygplus  

When I came to Google+ last September (no I was not in the first wave) I came here with some pretty set ideas as to what made a good picture and what did not.

I was pretty firmly in the camp that said that post-processing and particuarly "digital artmaking" was NOT photography at least as I practiced it.

I was stubborn in my idea that good photography was made in the camera and the only "acceptable adjustments" were some minor corrections such as exposure or white balance.  I did all my RAW processing in Canon Photo Professional and did not even own Lightroom.

On Google+ I started to discover the work of some great photographers who used post-processing in ways that I liked. I started to learn about the subtle (or not so subtle) ways it can be used to change an image into something completely different or to make it reflect more what we really saw.

I saw folks who used HDR (which I still haven't explored enough) to not do "overblown" work but to make reality that much better and to draw out details that are hidden in a lot of our work.

Through the fall and winter I explored processing, starting with Lightroom 3, discovering Nik Silver Efex and Color Efex through the suggestions of others and started looking at my current work (and older photos) in a whole new way.

I've started to develop what I consider my own style of railroad photography which is a lot different than where I was a year ago. I'm still learning the software and I'm still learning what I like.. but I thank everyone I've met here on Google+ for their help so far.
