Inspiring on Google+ Curated by @Opajdara (5th Edition)
This is the circle I go to when I find myself in need of beauty and inspiration. It's made mainly of photographers, but also other people who I find post intriguing, provoking, and inspiring content. This is a very colorful group. One thing they have in common, besides me, is engaging content that will enhance your Google+ experience. 
-----------------------------------------
I keep meeting interesting people here, and making new friends, thanks to being shared in many public circles. Which is why I am now sharing two of my circles every month:  
- ENGAGERS: those who have interacted with me in some way (either by plussing, commenting, and/or sharing my posts, or by participating in my communities), and
- INSPIRING: mainly photographers, but also other people who I find post original and interesting content.

To get into my circles is real simple: either engage with my posts, or keep sharing quality content. If you want me to notice you, be active in one or all of my communities (see below).

To connect with me - Opajdara, the best place is my xeeme page: http://xeeme.com/opajdara or http://www.opajdara.com/

MY PAGES AND COMMUNITIES
(Feel free to join if any of the topics interest you)

MOON PHOTOGRAPHY
Take a look at +Moonipulations, it's the place for all Moon lovers. Here you will find not only the photoshopped pics as the name indicates, but also the most beautiful moonscapes. If you want to jump in and share your photos,  join Moonipulations community: http://bit.ly/194vpSN

AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY
A place for those of us who like to see how earth looks from the sky. A refreshing change of perspective. Take a look for yourself: http://bit.ly/1mOSZA7

MOTION PHOTOGRAPHY
Look at the world around you - it's in constant motion. Stop for a moment and take a shot of it, then share it with us here:  http://bit.ly/1fI9xGq

SHADOW PHOTOGRAPHY
Visit the showcase of beautiful and creative shadow photography. Shadows can add a lot to a photograph. They can emphasize emotions, create surreal images, and be used in a variety of ways. If you are interested in exploring this fascinating interaction of darkness and light, please join us: http://bit.ly/16tts8k

RAIN PHOTOGRAPHY
Bad weather can give us some of the most beautiful photography. Rain in itself is the master of special effects; from lightning strikes to water drops, mirror reflections to blurring colours. This is the place to share in the beauty of rain photography: http://bit.ly/16tts8k

Damn, cold but nice weather. Inspiration to go out with the camera and what do both batteries say... Exhausted, of course.

Hmm, been quite quiet of late, busy summer, very few pictures apart from the trips. One more coming up, so probably will find the inspiration again. :)

Great Photographers With < 5,000 Followers

The photographers here are all in my personal circles.  The choices are mine and mine alone.  No one asked, begged, or pleaded to belong.  No bribes were offered or accepted.  These are the people that I follow because I appreciate their great quality photography and their interaction.  Most I have met as I help curate several of the photography themes.  There are NO requirements to share this circle.  I would appreciate the people in this circle plus the post, leave a comment, and share the circle as public.  

Each profile has been verified by me.  Most have < 5,000 followers (when they were put into the circle).  They each have high quality original photography content.  You won’t find many animated gifs!  I have included myself in the circle and also the landscape page.  Many are fairly new to G+ so please make them feel welcome!!

Landscape Photography:  I invite everyone to check out the +Landscape Photography  #LandsacapePhotography theme.  If you want to impress me, that’s the place to do it!!  Post a great landscape that will get my attention.  See the About tab for all the details.

I wasn’t included, what do I do?  If you meet the criteria, weren’t included, but think you should be, then leave me a comment.  Maybe I don’t know about you.  There are millions of people on G+ and I don’t know everyone.  However, I’ll be happy to have a look at your work if you will call it to my attention.  Start posting landscapes that get my attention (see above)!!

There’s a really great photographer XXX that you didn’t include.  Please feel free to recommend qualified people but please only one.  I discover new people every day and would be happy to look at their work.  Please make sure that the recommended person meets the criteria.  If they don’t then that tells me a lot about you!
