Charles Lupica83,296═════════════════════════════════     Top Photographers you should follow                 An Art of Photography Circle  Photographers whose art we think will amaze you ═════════════════════════════════#ArtOfPhotographyCircle tag to allow people to easily mute this post. It's been a while since I shared a circle here on G+ so I thought I would team up with +Scott Thomas and +Brian Dukes to share with you the first new circle I've created in more than a year.  We think you'll find that the photographers in this circle are some of the very best that G+ has to offer.  Of course you're probably already following people like Jeff Sullivan , Lori Hibbett, Jay Patel and  Vivienne Gucwa but we think that all of the people in this circle will add high quality content to your stream.  All share their amazing work and many of them share tutorials and resources to help you perfect your art. When deciding who would be in this circle, we used these guidelines• Sharing mostly their own work• When sharing the work of others, the work is clearly identified• Little to no, promotional material. • Some people are included that share a lot about technique but may not share a lot of their photography.• If they have gifs in their stream, they're almost always educational. • The images shared by these people frequently fall into the category of, "I wish I'd taken it" • They post to G+ on a regular basis,  For some this may be a little as once a month.  For others, this may be one or more a day.  People who post less than once a month are not included.  We prefer to circle people that are active here on G+. No one has asked to be in this circle, however, we intend to share a version of this each month.  *If you know of a talented photographer you'd like us to add*, please leave a comment and share the circle.  Doing so will get us to look at their profile. However, there is no guarantee that we'll include them in a future circle.   We want to maintain the quality of this circle.  Therefore, we will only add photographers that we would want to see in our own personal stream. Many of the photographers in this circle are well known so we are particularly interested in hearing your choice of photographers with fewer than 15'000 followers.  We would like to give them the opportunity to gain more views for their work.Please plus, comment and share.  This circle has no requirements for future participation but your support and encouragement is appreciated.I have chosen the name of the circle carefully to try to accurately represent the quality of the work by the photographers in it.  ValidationThis circle was very heavily vetted.  We have looked at each photographer's stream and decide that we would like to include them in this circle. +Charles Lupica (me), +Scott Thomas and +2014-06-27 17:39:05116934856CC G+

Wayne Marinovich26,506Wildlife Photographers CircleWell, it has been over a year since I last shared my wildlife photographers circle.

Mario Rotta15,308This is a circle in which I included a lot of excellent photographers: but most of them start from pictures to create visual design effects. So, this circle may represent a list of people working on the edge between photography and art. I like that experimental edge :-)2014-05-22 06:00:41400016CC G+

David Bowden37,155Its been awhile....For over three years I collected and shared an exclusive B&W circle. This circle "was" one of the most shared on G+ for awhile. I would share it once a month with everyone as a part of my personal desire to share more quality B&W images and photographers. The requirement for being in this circle was that the photographer shot at least 60% B&W images (I tend to shoot 80%).There are some excellent photographers and friends here. I encourage you to take a look at their work. While I know that bulk circle sharing is a thing of the past or no longer the norm on G+ (which is a shame) I wanted to re-share a collection of truly inspirational people.You wont be disappointed.

"Boys in the Bath"
African Bush Elephants
Chobe River, Chobe National Park, Botswana

Good morning! Here's a previously unpublished photo from the +Wild Eye safari I led to the Chobe river in March 2014. Young elephant bulls would end up playing in the river like this on every afternoon, and these two in particular put up a very entertaining show for us. Photographing this kind of behaviour from the water (we were on a specialised photographic boat) makes a Chobe photo safari special. What do you think of my monochrome rendering here? I quite like it.

Something for #threatenedthursday ...

Loving Sisters

A tender moment from the Kalahari desert (Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park).
Lion numbers in the wild have plummeted from over several hundred thousand no less than 50 years ago to less than 30,000 today. The lion is in peril, whether we want to acknowledge it or not!

What are your thoughts on this?

I say: "Follow the money"

Follow the money!
"Saving" Kruger's rhinos from poaching by selling them to recognised hunting reserves is a bit like removing your child from the middle of the busy and dangerous highway and taking him to the middle of a motor racing speedway - instead of reckless and possibly illegal drivers hitting him his demise will still happen, it will just happen while "sportsmen" have their fun and organisers make their money...it doesn't save the child from being hit by a vehicle in any case.

"Shy Little Guy" - WILDLIFE WEDNESDAY
Common Duiker
Kruger National Park, South Africa

It's time to dust off the photos of all the wild creatures you've encountered on your travels, and submit them to the Wildlife Wednesday photo theme (curated by +Mike Spinak and myself). Simply tag your posts with #WildlifeWednesday  and you're all set to go. You can also search the hashtag to see what other people have contributed to the theme today and in the past.

This is a small antelope called the "Common Duiker" (Duiker translated from Afrikaans literally means "diver"). They usually bolt as soon as you stop to photograph them, but this one was quite obliging and posed like a model.

Remember to tag your African posts with #AFRICANature  to be featured on the page and possibly the blog of +AFRICANature too...<... more »

According to Christina Russo writing for The Huffington Post:
"The slaughter of Africa's elephants for their ivory is leaving a devastating number of casualties: some conservationists cite as many as 50,000 are being killed annually. It's a full-on massacre. It's a genocide, actually, if you are gutsy enough to call it what it is."

The only creature that should have ivory in its possession is an elephant! Check out the Global March for Elephants and Rhinos page and their initiative to spread awareness: http://www.march4elephantsandrhinos.org/

WORLD LION DAY

Today is World Lion Day...
World Lion Day is an independent campaign working to highlight the importance of the lion globally and to raise lion conservation awareness worldwide.

"Saving the King of Beasts to Save Ourselves"
For more info on the initiative: www.worldlionday.com

Lion numbers in the wild have plummeted drastically in the last 100 years. As Dereck Joubert, filmmaker of the film The Last Lions and director of Great Plains Conservation, puts it: "A hundred years ago we think there were over a million lions. When I was born, maybe 450,000 lions roamed these plains. Today we niggle over if there are 20,000 or 35,000 lions left and forget to look over our shoulders at history."

"Scramble for Safety"
Whitebearded Wildebeest & Nile Crocodile
Mara River, Mara Triangle, Kenya

It's almost time to witness scenes like these! The first of the +Wild Eye Great Migration safaris are kicking off this week - with my turn to host a trip coming up towards the end of September. The Mara is already abuzz with activity as hundreds-of-thousands of wildebeest are flooding the plains. They will cross the rivers back and forth during the coming months depending on how the rains fall and where the new shoots of grass come up. We witnessed this dramatic encounter on our trip last year. A massive crocodile was hunting the wildebeest and zebra down as they were making their way across the river. You can really see the survival instinct at play here as the wildebeest on the right simply clambers on top of the back of the crocodile to get to the other side.more »

Website Portfolio Updated

I've been putting it off for too long - but I finally got round to updating my portfolio galleries on my website last night (with many previously unseen photos as well). I'd love to know what you think, so do check it out when you have a few minutes to burn.

"Family Frustrations" - WILDLIFE WEDNESDAY
Chacma Baboons
Chobe National Park, Botswana

Hello everyone! It's time for Wildlife Wednesday again. I'm sharing this photo of a family of baboons on the banks of the Chobe river in Botswana. Why don't we make today's unofficial theme a family theme?? Show us your "wildlife families" by adding the hashtag #WildlifeWednesday  to your posts. +Mike Spinak and I are always looking forward to what will be shared to the theme.

What do you think this mother and father are thinking with their rowdy little ones behaving badly? I captured this photo from the +Wild Eye photographic boat on the Chobe river - the troop was chilling out at dawn on the banks of the river.

It's always hard for me to pick a favourite photo - as many photos don't turn out as well as I want them to but they are still connected to a favourite experience with wildlife. This photo was taken last month on my visit to Zimanga, and I was lying down in the road to get this perspective of the local pack of African Wild Dogs. Tracking these dogs on the hunt is a thrill-a-minute, and even just seeing them is always special - given how endangered they are.

"Boys in the Bath"
African Bush Elephants
Chobe River, Chobe National Park, Botswana

Good morning! Here's a previously unpublished photo from the +Wild Eye safari I led to the Chobe river in March 2014. Young elephant bulls would end up playing in the river like this on every afternoon, and these two in particular put up a very entertaining show for us. Photographing this kind of behaviour from the water (we were on a specialised photographic boat) makes a Chobe photo safari special. What do you think of my monochrome rendering here? I quite like it.

An Unlucky Gnu

My latest post on the +Wild Eye blog is a little "deeper" than my usual photographic posts. I should do this more often!

"Lover's View" - WILDLIFE WEDNESDAY
African Lions
Mara Triangle, Masai Mara, Kenya

Hello friends! Dig up your best photos of wild creatures you've encountered on your travels and share them with us for #WildlifeWednesday (curated by myself and +Mike Spinak). Simply add the hashtag #WildlifeWednesday  to your posts and search the hashtag to see what others are sharing today...

These mating lions were obvlivious to the thousands of wildebeest that dotted the plains around them. It's interesting to note that the wildebeest were around them on all sides (behind us too) and a notable gap was cleared by the herds around the lions for obvious reasons. I captured this photo on the Great Migration photo safari I hosted with +Wild Eye last year...I can't wait to return in September!

If you like - feel free to share!!

"Bigmouth is Angry" - AFRICAN TUESDAY
Hippopotamus
Zimanga Private Game Reserve, Mkuze, South Africa

Good morning! It's an OPEN THEME on this African Tuesday and you surely can't get more "open" than this big hippo mouthpiece?? Post your own photos taken in Africa to the theme by:
1. tagging your posts with #AfricanTuesday  
2. including the +African Tuesday page so you can be considered for the weekly Top5 selection
3. including the curators (myself, +Grobler du Preez, +Dick Whitlock)

I photographed this Hippo bull displaying his dominance by thrashing around in the water by lying flat on my belly next to the Hlambanyathi dam in Zimanga. The light was perfect (as was the angle).
