Here's a circle of interest from Thomas Hawk. 

Thanks Thomas
 
2500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 3 of 5)

This is the fifth time I've shared my photographer's circle on Google+.  I'm going to share it in 5 posts.  Last week I shared last name A-Da, and Da-Ho.  Today's , part 3 of 5, today, represents Ho-Mi.  I'll share the remaining two tomorrow and Thursday.  

I originally shared my photographers circle at 500, 1,000, 1,500 and 2,000 photographers.  I'll probably share it again eventually when it gets to 3,000.

A few notes about this circle.

The criteria that I look for (and don't always get right) in this circle is that the photographer produce interesting and engaging photography.  I also look for people who are active in the community, post mostly their own work, and post regularly.  I'm looking more for people who post their own work and less of the noise stuff (gifs, links, non-photography, promotions, etc.).  I also like people who are positive, friendly, nice, helpful, etc. and dislike people who are mean, snarky, jerks, disrespectful, etc.

I have a pretty well known bias against signatures and watermarks.  You will see very few photographers in my circles who use them.  I really hate the watermark debate and would rather not have it with folks.  I just don't like them -- it's my circle that I have to look at.  There are likely a few folks in here who use them who are friends of mine, but for the most part, this is a pretty watermark free circle.  It's totally cool if you love your watermark, it's just not something I really want to look at.  Please don't hate me for my aesthetic preference.  

Finally, the photography community on Google+ is probably the best one on the internet today.  There is no way that I can possibly include all of the fine photographers worth following on G+.  There are wayyyyy too many.  These are just 2,500 that I personally have noticed.  I'm sure I left out some really amazing ones -- like you if you are not in this circle :)  I'll probably also totally kick myself when I realize that I accidentally left out a really obvious good one who may even be a friend of mine -- again, maybe even like you.  :)

Stay tuned for parts 4 and 5 and thanks again to all of the great photographers on G+ who make this place such a delight to hang out.

*Note, Google Circles are terribly wonky.  It wouldn't let me add some photographers in my circle into these circles because of "domain errors."  If this affected you, sorry about that.

Wonderful verse to accompany this image or a yellow rose. 
 
"Just remember in the winter, far beneath the bitter snow
Lies the seed, that with the sun's love in the spring becomes the rose."  Lyrics from, The Rose - Amanda McBroom

             Rules / thoughts for the
                Critique Section
  
• Images placed in the critique section should expect critique.
• Glowing praise should include what you like about the image.
• If you want people to tell you how great your images are, then one of the other sections are better for this.
• people offering critique should be polite and respectful.  
• Critiques should not be personal.
• people receiving critiques should be polite and respectful.
• Critiques work best when the person receiving the critique does not try to convince the critic that the original choice was correct.  Listen to the critique, weigh it's value to you, decide for yourself if it makes sense.  Thank the person who took time to offer critique even if you don't agree.
• Disengage immediately if it becomes personal.


•  Standard disclaimer when I do a critique:
Art is in the eye of the beholder.  My art is different than your art.  My vision is different than your vision. The comments I offer are not truth; they are my opinion. :-)

Just had to share this form the studio page. :-)
 
I was looking back through some old images and I cam across this wild columbine, a Aquilegia vulgaris L.  This is native to Europe and grows wild all over Switzerland; where it is protected by law. 

This is a n old image that I just processed today.  This was shot with a black background and is being added to my "On-Black" collection.

Iconic landscape image of the gasthaus at Ebenalp, Appenzell, Switzerland
 
Last weekend I went on a wonderful photowalk in the #Appenzell  region of #Switzerland , organized by +Evelin Inauen.  It was a fantastic walk and I can't thank Evelin enough for all she did. I don't know the exact count but, there where around 26 people on the photowalk.  In addition to the main photowalk, Evelin organized a pre-walk BBQ (walk) on Friday night and a post-walk hike to a beautiful waterfall in the region on Sunday.

This building is a famous local interest gasthaus.  It's hard to imagine a set of photos of the region that doesn't include a photo of this iconic building, nestled tightly beneath the overhanging cliff on the side of Ebenalp, Appenzell, Switzerland.

My friend +Margaret Tompkins  has put together a very nice circle of people that haven't quite gotten traction yet here on G+.  It's well worth the time to look at the 111 people in this circle or just add them all and enjoy.
 

Let Me Introduce You To Great Photographers With < 1000 Followers !

I've had the wonderful opportunity over the last six months to get acquainted with many photographers through the photography themes that I help curate.  I'm amazed at how may excellent photographers have very few followers.  I would like to introduce you to these great people.

These are all people in my personal circles and I admire their photography!!  I'm hoping that you will enjoy it as much as I do!!  Share and Enjoy !!

I've included myself in this circle and also my good friend +Charles Lupica who gave me the original idea!

+Rinus Bakker has released his High Quality Nature Photographers circle.  If you're looking to add some top quality Nature photographers to your circles, have a look here. 
.
 
E N J O Y the release of the updated High Quality Nature Photographer Circle v 4.0!
A huge THANK YOU to all the people (some have been exceptional generous) who did awesome nominations!!!
Now it is all up to you if this will become another great success.

Members are always very kind and supportive
Some notes about sharing for the new ones:
We all want to be in a circle to get some more attention and friends. Being in a circle which is not re-shared is pointless, we have no re-share police, but 
if YOU want to SUPPORT please ADD this circle to yours AND RE-SHARE publicly, so everyone benefits even the people that else never would see the circle and you give them a chance to add.
This is just the way it is. Thank you in advance!

What is in the circle:
Mainly ASTONISHING PHOTOGRAPHERS OF NATURAL SUBJECTS such as flowers, animals, landscapes, birds and so on and so further. Besides that a bunch who are on their way to become astonishing.
A very small percentage of this people and a few pages are not nature photographers. They are here because they are very important to me are to the project or to both.

This is an updated version with about 130 new ones. You can safely add it to version 3 if you have already, it wil just acummulate to the current number.

If you apply to the rules and you expected to be in, please give me another hint and you might be in next update.

If you managed to be in this circle you will be automatically in the next update of High Quality Sharing People Of G+ circle as well.

Want to become a member or nominate someone else:
Please take note of the rules and please go on nominating, always at original share of the circle, which is right here!

Rules
I will not take anybody in because I like the person, or the person asked so kindly.
The rules to be in it are:
- You post regularly photo's of Nature: Wildlife, animals, flowers, birds, Landscape etc.
- Your postings to this circle should be at least 75 percent of this kind.
- At least 50 percent of your posting to this circle is your own work and not reshared material
- Regularly means averaged at least one post per week
- You do not need to be a professional but if you are it's fine
- The quality of your photo's should be at least above average
- You add this circle to your circles to give it benefit for all who contribute.
- You kindly consider to re-share this circle publicly without altering it to enhance the snowball effect.
- You leave a message here if you want to be in.
- I have a look at your activities and decide if I will take you in.
- You may recommend others as well.
