What's the simplest way of publishing from Lightroom to Google+? I found a Picasa plugin but wondered if there was some secret better way?

+Catherine Kilgour ok thanks,
I guess I have a random portfolio right now on Flickr, that I've just been uploading random pictures that I take,

I've learned all the buttons on my nikon d3200, just now I guess I have to learn more of angles or "combinations" for better pictures,

I think mainly, landscapes and events going on is what I'll gear towards

Any of you shooting with the Fuji X-T1? Looks darn nice apart from complaints about the navigation buttons on the back and gripes about peculiarities with the focusing (using said buttons) and face-detect modes.

I've finally made some progress towards mastering my new #Ubuntu Desktop. After much looking around there is a nice little photo package  that works well for me?

It's called gThumb (https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/gthumb)

It's probably going to take a fair 24 hours to sort all my images into nice date-time catalogues - but so far so good.

I found some of my most favorite images (I thought I'd lost them) - so look forward to sharing them with everyone....

Took this today at Lake Coleridge. Extremely windy conditions
Please critique and suggest how could I improve this.

Having a level horizon would be good place to start. I think I would have included more sky/cloud in the composition too, to give more of a sense of the mood of the day. Some simple dodging and burning in the cloud can add effect if it's flat and dull.

And as was stated earlier, that distracting stuff on the right edge of frame needs to be cropped out - easiest to do this in camera otherwise you're just throwing away pixels.

Just a reminder to those folk living in Hawke's Bay, I will be down at the Kitchen Table Cafe & Community Art Space for their first Art Talk session, from 9:30am this Saturday.

And as an incentive for people to come down I will be giving away / taking donations for, a selection of prints of my works.  Some of these are framed prints, some are mounted prints and some a proofs that I print on to light card myself.

If you have a particular favorite from my images, and promise to turn up to say hi, I will print it for you to take away with you.  But you need to let me know ASAP so I can print it for you.

CALLING ALL WHO USE FUJIFILM CAMS - Let me know what you think of it! 
Fujifilm XT1, 56mm, F1.2, 1/640s, ISO200 (CaptureOne Pro8) The Inspiration, The inspiration for the images in this review came from our love for the outdoors and the New Zealand bush. We have spent a lot of time hiking around the country and have been pondering how to capture what we see and how we feel while on an adventure. Capturing atmosphere is not an easy task! Luckily the new 56mm APD lens from Fujifilm arrived just in tim...

Hello all, 

Just a quick note, we've recently had to spend a disappointing amount of time removing posts from the community that are little more than thinly veiled advertising and promotion.

Please remember to keep your contributions on-topic, and if you're posting photographs to share with the community at large, please post your images directly and don't link out to other sources.

Lets keep those awesome photographs rolling!

Thanks!

Your Moderator Folks ;)

New Zealand Photography Workshop: 25 Oct - 27 Oct 2014

We still have a few spots available for the photographic workshop that Ian Ashmore and myself are hosting over Labour Weekend, based around Tongariro National Park in New Zealand. This is a 3 day / 2 night workshop for all levels (we will tailor the sessions to suit the abilities of those that are coming), and we are aiming to make the experience as affordable and enjoyable as possible.

The weekend workshop will include:

- Accommodation at a comfortable, warm lodge in Turangi, and each participant will get a room of their own (their will be a reduction in the fee for couples / friends sharing rooms)
- Tuition / Guidance from Andrew and Ian on practical shoots
- Shoots / Locations including the Lower part of Tongariro Crossing Track, Lake Rotoaira area, Tukino Skifield access road, one other "secret" location, and 2 short shoots at local rivers / waterfalls for those that are interested during the day (all of these are subject to suitable safe weather conditions)
- Workshop Sessions at the lodge on landscape photography and astrophotography, tailored to the individual needs of the group.

Not included in the workshop fee:

- Food / drink / meals / evening entertainment
- Transport to and from Turangi
- Transport to shooting locations, however we will have transport available free of charge if you need it
- Supply of suitable clothing etc to allow participation

Price for the 3 day workshop is $500, places are limited to the first 10 people. We will require a $75 deposit to confirm your place on the workshop, with the balance payable on 18 October.

A moderate level of fitness is required as there will be some walking involved in all shooting locations, but nothing more than an hour walking on formed, mainly, level tracks

If you have any questions or wish to make a booking, leave a comment on this post

Been trying to get a nice pre-dawn shot of morning star and sickle moon and the hint of the dawn on camera - the Canon 450 refuses to fire on manual / or bulb / or night setting.  Why would it do that? I even tried the remote - no luck.  Basically it focus and then refuses to take the picture.
Read the manual - that says - on Manual setting - aim set f-stop/ set time/ aim/ focus and take picture.  So I am at a loss to understand why it refuses to take the last step.  Ideas???
