The NEW Pixativity Pro/Amateur Photographer's Circle | MAY 2014 | READ THE WHOLE POST BEFORE ASKING FOR INCLUSION

The first two PAC's (March & April 2014) were great successes and I want to thank everybody who participated in it! Like my old APC Circles, this new MAY PAC will be another great way to enhance your feed! I will check EVERY SINGLE feed and guarantee that your stream will flood from quality images when you add this circle when released.

Please note that I have reset (deleted) the April Circle and the show begins from scratch again. That way I can assure you that the circle is filled with FRESH content and COOL new photographers every month! :)

How To Qualify To Future PAC Circles

If you're a professional or an amateur photographer mainly sharing your own original work in your feed, then you're eligible to ask for inclusion in the May PAC.

The difference between this circle and the old APC is that I now will be giving away FREE accounts to the Pixativity Photographer's Directory every time I share this circle. I will pick three photographer's from the circle and add them to the directory while I compile the circle (you will be notified). 

(For those of you not remembering the APC, it's one of my most shared and popular circles since I started here on Google+ a couple of years ago. Many participants have received thousands of new followers and some of the people I helped promote in the APC now boast more followers than I do! I love that! It speaks for the positiveness and quality of this circle. The PAC will be of the same high quality!

The Guidelines

Yes, there are rules and guidelines. :) If you want to participate in the PAC you need to do the following:

1) Plus and comment this post to show that you want to participate (you must do that here on the original post). Please state what kind of photography you're into in your comment. You also may tag friends of yours to help promote them as well. I'll add them too if they meet these guidelines. Tagging friends increases your chances of being added.

2) Reshare this post to help promote your fellow G-plussers. That way YOU will receive more attention once the circle is released. If you do not reshare, I probably won't add you to the circle since this is a joint effort to promote good photographers. YOU deserve to be reshared, right? So does your fellow G-plussers.

The post must be reshared in your personal feed and publicly.

Pages will NOT be accepted into the circle.

3) Please do NOT add external or internal links to albums, websites, blogs etc. in the comments. This post is neither the right place for advertisement nor for spam. Thanks. I will check your feed anyway, be sure of that. :)

4) Premium & Lifetime Members of the Pixativity Photographer's Directory website are automatically included in the circle. Still;members should reshare this post and  let me know that you did so in the comments.

(How to obtain a Premium account to the PPD can be found here: http://maps.pixativity.com/join/).

Please Note

If I do NOT add you to the circle there's always a reason for that. 1) You do not mainly share your own original work in your feed, 2) You are a web marketeer, SEO-specialist etc. or 3) I did not like the mix of your feed (yeah, I know, it's a very subjective thing to create circles like this) or 4) I just missed your comment of some reason – mistakes happen, I am only human.

Another thing: I cannot add everybody in one circle but be assured that I check ALL feeds and you are welcome to ask for inclusion in the next edition of the PAC.

Release Date

The next circle will be released on May 5. Keep an eye open for the up-coming Circle Post.

Now, let's make this May PAC another success story. :) Get on with the resharing.

Cheers!

Magic Encounters

Night walked into the forest as day walked out of the forest
The pale moon is like a glass eye of a witch staring at you
The dark magic falls into the forest 
Lusty monsters fill the magic forest
And the magic forest falls asleep… 

––Jay Haa

Morning Flight

The morning light will show us the way 
The morning light will show us the way 
For every tree and every flower 
That dances in the sun 
For every childhood smile 
That touches everyone 
For every life that we are given 
For every dream realized 
The morning sun will show you the way 
The morning sun will show you the way

Paint it Black

I look inside myself and see my heart is black 
I see my red door and it has been painted black 
Maybe then I'll fade away and not have to face the facts 
It's not easy facing up when your whole world is black 

No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue 
I could not forsee this thing happening to you 
If I look hard enough into the setting sun 
My love will laugh with me before the morning comes

Windmill Symphony

Standing.
Windmill blades
turn in the sun

shredding air with ease. 
The man
looks out

of the window
at the land ahead,
full of aspirations

he hopes to reach.
His wife nearby
sees the same view.

Wishes on display on
this balmy July morn.
London, far away

ticks along swathed in grey
as it did decades before.
The man hopes to return,

sit in cafés, chuckle
as men with briefcases
scuttle around like cockroaches.

Some things never change.
That's OK though
isn't it?

Here with his partner
looking out, content,
a smile appears on his wise face.

Thirty years in the past
he thinks of future times. 
Still the same.
Still standing.

––Reece AJ Chambers

Summer Colors

Don't we all wait for the summer? At least if you're living in the Northern Hemisphere.

This picture was enhanced with the new Summer Colors Photoshop Action (which can be found here: http://maps.pixativity.com/premium-photoshop-action-summer-colors/).

I opened the original picture and applied the action on it, done. It took me approximately 20 seconds.

Have a wonderful Easter Weekend everybody!

Silence Is Golden

If I am silent then I am not real
But if I speak up then no one will hear
If I wear a mask there’s somewhere to hide

Silence is golden
I have been broken
Safe in my own skin
So nobody wins

If I raise my voice will someone get hurt
And if I can’t feel then I won’t get touched
If no truths are spoken then no lies can hide

Silence is golden
Nobody gets in
Safe in my own skin
So nobody wins

Did you hear me speak
Do you understand
Did you hear my voice
Will you hold my hand
Do you understand me

Won’t someone listen
Nobody gets in
My body’s a temple
But nothing is simple
Silence is golden
I have been broken
Something was stolen
Safe in my own skin

––Garbage

Story
Tagline
Author | Photographer | Digital Artist | WordPress Designer | Web Editor | Pro Blogger
Introduction

I am an author of historical fact books, photographer, Photoshop artist, WordPress designer (since WP saw the light of day), web editor, professional blogger and musician. Oh yeah, I’m a dad too. That takes a lot of skill, patience and bravery.

Some people say I am crazy – I just call it being passionate about what I do.

I am the third most followed person in Sweden on Google+ (actually I am number one in reality since the two persons before me are inactive) and rank in the top 35 World Wide in average plusses, comments and reshares on/of my posts according to CircleCount.com statistics. My Google+ page “Photoshop Tutorials” (co-curated with Lorena Masi) has more than 240,000 followers and counting (as of November 2013) and is one of the fastest growing pages on The Big G+.

I am also a member (former moderator) in the Photo Sharing | Fighting Picture Theft Community.

My specialities in photography/image editing are Conceptual Photography, Fine-Art, Landscapes and Photoshop Visual Art.

Now that I mentioned Photoshop, we married way back in the early 1990′s. Today I still don’t understand her fully. Love can be a strange thing…

I want to keep this introduction short because my feed is all about pictures. You can read my full bio over at LinkedIn.

Being a published author as well, I might as well mention the link to my page at my publisher:


I was born in Finland, raised in Sweden and lived many years abroad (Finland, Germany, USA). I guess that makes a cosmopolitan (and curious?).

My main interests, besides the obvious as stated above, are particle physics, cosmology, astronomy, music (I used to play the guitar in a hard rock band in the 1980's), nature hikes, fishing (mainly sea trout), computer technology to mention just a few.

For those of you interested in buying my work, yes, I sell high resolution files of my images (NO prints) which you may print out at a printshop of your convenience. Contact me for more details.

Check out more at PIXATIVITY.COM, the webpage (and blog) I maintain together with my partner Lorena Masi.

I run the Pixativity Photographer's Directory where I promote excellent pro and amateur photographer's from all over the world.

If you want to use my work for commercial purposes, contact me for detailed pricing information.

Want to use my work without asking me first? Then read this page about my Peter From Creative Donations License.

For my work labeled Photoshop I use my own photography, stock photography and clip-art. Sometimes I mix all three components in my work. Please note that the ARTWORK is All Rights Reserved.
Bragging rights
Tech and economic education, solved a couple of historical mysteries, play the guitar, have a sweet boy and have seen many corners of the world.
