Again Maria Strömvik (+Maria Strömvik) . - . 1968 Stockholm, Lund Schweden

”Mermaid dinner (scallop)”
(02/04 one of her superb series: ”Mermaid dinner” (so far 4 photos)
“OK, so it is an absolutely crazy idea, but I've known since last winter (when the idea somehow got hold of my brain) that I just had to try it: a little series of photos from a mermaid dinner party! Shot in August in a very cold and murky Baltic Sea, using my very sweet friends, friends of friends, and friend's kids, as models. No artifical light, and no real underwater equipment (I used my little Nikon D60 plus an Ewa-Marine "plastic bag underwater housing"). The image quality varies a lot between the photos, depending on which day they were taken (the visibility and "murkiness" constantly changes). After some consideration I decided to not let this bother me too much, and to just process each photo according to its own potential, mostly because I had so much fun taking them :-)” (https://secure.flickr.com/photos/mariastromvik/ .)

He is imho the best with exquisite photos of birds - a further excellent photographer who has obviously left G+ - again:

Stefano Ronchi (+Stefano Ronchi) . - . Caravaggio (near Milan) Italy

"Snowy owl"
(Bubo scandiacus, family Strigidae, also known as Arctic Owl, Great White Owl or Harfang)

more photos/information/web: #mainpost concerning +Stefano Ronchi:
https://plus.google.com/u/0/101811340813117737931/posts/Gwtk2ZZntCi .

The Snowy Owl (Bubo scandiacus) is a large owl of the typical owl family Strigidae. ... is the official bird of Quebec. … nest in the Arctic tundra of the northermost stretches of Alaska, Canada and Eurasia. They winter south through Canada and northern Eurasia, with irruptions occurring further south in some years. Snowy Owls are attracted to open areas like coastal dunes and prairies that appear somewhat similar to tundra. .. This powerful bird relies primarily on lemmings and other small rodents for food during the breeding season, but at times of low prey density, or during the ptarmigan nesting period, they may switch to favoring juvenile ptarmigan. They are opportunistic hunters and prey species may vary considerably, especially in winter. They feed on a wide variety of small mammals such as meadow voles and deer mice, but will take advantage of larger prey, frequently following traplines to find food. Some of the larger mammal prey includes hares, muskrats, marmots, squirrels, rabbits, raccoons, prairie dogs, rats, moles, and entrapped furbearers. Birds preyed upon include ptarmigan, other ducks, geese, shorebirds, pheasants, grouse, coots, grebes, gulls, songbirds, and even other raptors, including other owl species. Most of the owls' hunting is done in the "sit and wait" style; prey may be captured on the ground, in the air or fish may be snatched off the surface of bodies of water using their sharp talons. Each bird must capture roughly 7 to 12 mice per day to meet its food requirement and can eat more than 1,600 lemmings per year. … (please read further on Wikipedia: https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/wiki/Snowy_owl .)

”Cristina”

My favours of her sets:
”Botanical Garden (Tatiana and Anna)”

http://www.petrovajulian.com/photos-series/baroque-lisa/ .

”Portrait (French portraire, … “play anything the devil in hell," … Parsuna - from the Latin. Persona - “personality, person") - the image or description of any person or group of people, existing or existed in real life, including the means of art (paintings, drawings, prints, sculpture, photography, graphic arts). In photography there is no past and future, it is always in the present tense. Time portrait - a dynamic, "real" is always full of the memory of the previous and the prediction of the future ... Portrait constantly teeters on the edge of the mystical art of doubling and reflection of reality. How to focus, ability to combine, how many painful quest to be able to preserve the unity of the movement, in spite of the changes that occur in the face of all forms of vibrations of thoughts, the feelings of the soul. Portrait, as opposed to photographs, is "made" work of art, for which spent a lot of time and mental effort ..., so the quality and depth of the transfer, it will be much more complex and multi-layered work, much better than sending a person...”

To me this is more than a hobby or a vocation, is a big part of my life. It's in what I spend more hours each day, MOST part of my mind and my soul. It's the best way I find to teach and to learn. To keep parts of my life. Now my work Reaches people around the world. I reach people of all ages and I Feel Good About what I do.

Ian Cameron . - . Knockomie Forres, Moray Scotland

”Jurassic View 2”
(Quiraing, Skye - island off the west coast of Scotland - “Honey light from a breaking dawn washes over the velvet slopes of the Quiraing painting the under belly of the clouds and duly reflecting in the lochan at the foot of the slopes”)

“The most dramatic section of Skye is probably the Trotternish ridge and the area known as the Quiraing with its sumptuous green carpeted hills and folded earth. It tends to look like a film set from Jurassic park and at dawn it is easy to imagine a few pterodactyls circling the sky. …” (text taken from this photo of the same place: http://www.transientlight.co.uk/photo/dawn-on-the-quiraing/?gallery=mountains .)

Watch the difference esp in the colour of the sky on the right side of the photo - ”Jurassic View”: http://www.transientlight.co.uk/photo/jurassic-view/?gallery=autumn .

”The essence of good landscape photography seems to boil down to three things: composition, timing and light and I believe that this final ingredient, light, its colour, quality and strength is the single biggest infuence on the success or otherwise of the final image. Scotland more than any other country I have tackled, challenges the photographer's patience and skill; it toys with you, teases you with amazing light, then laughs at you as you struggle in shrieking wind and rain to record that rapidly fading moment of magic. I liken it to trying to land a feisty salmon on a fishing line too thin to hold it. In photographic terms if the timing, elements, lighting and subject material are not persuaded into coherency, then, as with fishing, the hook is slipped, the line breaks and the moment of triumph passes. Transient Light perfectly describes that moment. I search both the wide and intimate landscape for those magical seconds when all the elements align. These extraordinary moments pass all too rapidly and subside back to the mundane.

”My Philosophy.
The sole intent of my landscape photography is simple. I want to recreate the scene that you would have witnessed with your own eyes had you been standing next to me at the moment I fired the camera's shutter. That isn't the limit of my intent, for ultimately the best landscape photographs should invigorate all your senses, so that atmosphere and mood are as tangible as the vision and that image should be as transparent as a glassless window - a scene you can step through and touch. Whether you shoot digital or film there are always a few caveats, no film records light, shade or colour in the same way as the human eye perceives it. You and I can see detail within a ten stop range. Fuji Velvia can barely record details over five stops, a serious shortcoming that has to be taken into account. Consequently I will use neutral density graduated filters to bring film more into line with what you and I would see.  Occasionally I choose to enhance existing colours with very weak filters but I try to use them as honestly as I can. It is never my intention to falsify colours and as previously indicated, It is vitally important to me that anyone viewing these images, knows, that if they had been in that place, at that time and date, they too could have beheld the vision that I was witness too. There are two brands of filter that for me stand head and shoulders above the others. Both have filters that are rectangular in shape so that you can position the grad line exactly where you want it, both are 100mm wide, are pretty well identical in terms of quality, and completely colour neutral. …” (Please read more esp. about his equipment on: http://www.transientlight.co.uk/page/about/ .)
