I advise you to follow Trey Ratcliff and his blog stuckincustoms.com .. He is the baap of HDR photography and also got a good guide on HDR photography in his website... he speaks magic with his photographs and is one of the best in the world... can learn a lot from him for sure.

Trey is also VERY active on Google Plus and I think does regular hangouts.

Yup know it and have been following/circling him since the start of G+. Though first I saw his mind blowing images at flickr where is also very popular and one of the best photographers who uploads with CC license instead of fully copyright.

Here is his photo of Taj Mahal. Definitely the best photo of Taj IMO till date.



And his descriptions and his travels are also interesting.

Here is the HDR tutorial BTW

Another interesting photographer is Thomas Hawk.

Just checked the top Google+ users in terms of followers. Britney Spears and Paris Hilton both seem to have neared the top whereas they joined quite late. WTF. G+ is also seeming to transform from a so called "tech and interesting social network" to yet another "celebrity social network". Britney has closed up on even Larry Page and even Paris is nearing Sergey. Maybe if Kim Kardashian takes it seriously then she would also get a lot of followers and move to the top. Not sure if it is good or bad but it is a bit surprising for me as the uniqueness of G+ seems to be reducing in this way. I saw Ashton Kutcher hardly receiving any followers though he was one of the early adopters. I liked it in a way to be honest as that is why G+ was different as techies and interesting people were getting more followers than celebrities. But it seems facebook and twitter crowd is instead starting to take over G+ ever since it became public though it was primarily techies and interesting people at the start.

don't be a hater. you do not have to follow spears or anyone. you just follow the people you like and that's it. google has been very good at keeping marketing spam from your stream. launch of google pages today is a new challenge for them.

Not being a hater but I never used to do social network for the sh!t of it. I had used Orkut for a few days five years ago and then I have used Google+ seriously as I felt it was different. Just do not want it to turn into another facebook or myspace in the long run. A Larry Page, Sergey Brin, Trey Ratcliff or somebody creative getting due is more important than the gazallions of celebrities like Britney, Paris, Kim or what not getting a lot bigger following by posting some raunchy pics or other sh!t. Google+ was different for a reason and hope that it does not become another facebook or twitter.
