This might be the number one reason I don't visit +Google+ that much anymore, lets see how this experiment by +Tamara Pruessner works out :) 

New Day's Hope

I have been doing a lot of thinking about how my main stream no longer shows everyone, or even a few and their newest posts, about how my own posts get increasingly smaller interaction, and how if my posts are doing that, then everyone's are.  I think the algorithm that governs what we see and what others see of our own stuff has gotten too restrictive.  And it frustrates me to no end - especially when I have 100 new posts in my stream and most are either 24 hours old, something I have already seen (and plussed or commented) or both.  Fresh isn't happening anymore and it is FRUSTRATING.

I don't normally notify anyone of my posts but for this, I am (and I am not even sure how many will get the notification - over 3500 in my circles).  What I am proposing is an experiment of sorts.  To all of those that comment on this post, I will go to your stream and plus the heck out of you, comment as much as possible, and over the next week, share a few my favorite posts.  Here is the catch - you have to share this post or something similar, calling your own circles to action.  

Let's see if we can shake up the algorithm a bit.  Let's see if we can take back control of our streams LIKE WE SHOULD HAVE.  Let's see if our streams start showing our favorite people again.  A week from now, I will make a new post so I can see if my stream has changed... hopefully, mine will and so will yours.

Let’s Publish Plus One Collection III - SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW ACCEPTED!

Want to be in the next volume of Plus One Collection charity book? Read on and act now!

Ever since Google+ launched, we’ve been publishing photography books that contained some of the best photographs you shared. We published two volumes so far. It wasn’t just a nice coffee table book - but all proceeds from the sale went to great causes. Two years ago we raised over $10,000 for Kiva. A year ago we raised over $13,000 for the Kilgoris Project and we bought cameras for kids in Kenya. This year’s cause will soon be announced, but as usual, all proceeds from the sale of the book will benefit a charitable cause. 

You can see more here (though the website will soon be updated to include this year’s information) - http://plusonecollection.com/

Let’s Publish Plus One Collection III - SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW ACCEPTED!

Want to be in the next volume of Plus One Collection charity book? Read on and act now!

It wasn’t just a nice coffee table book - but all proceeds from the sale went to great causes. Two years ago we raised over $10,000 for Kiva. A year ago we raised over $13,000 for the Kilgoris Project and we bought cameras for kids in Kenya. This year’s cause will soon be announced, but as usual, all proceeds from the sale of the book will benefit a charitable cause. 

You can see more here (though the website will soon be updated to include this year’s information) - http://plusonecollection.com/

Who can get published? Anyone! We hope to get as many submissions as possible. Due to the volume, we can’t publish them all, but we will publish as many as we can. 

Is there a theme this year? Yes, there is. The theme for this year’s book is “Our World” and the book will be split into three sections - “Our Planet”, “Our People” and “Our Creations”. You can interpret it however you’d like - we’d love to see how you express these. 

Do we accept color or B&W images? Either one is great.

How can you submit the work? Here are simple instructions: 

1 - Download and fill out image release form from here - http://goo.gl/brpX6n (you can even scan it using your phone, or use apps such as SignNow or TurboScan)
2 - Fill out the information about yourself and upload your work here - http://form.jotform.us/form/40565430045144
3 - Upload your submission to Google+, and tag it with #PlusOneCollectionIII tag 

Can you submit more than one image? Sure! You can submit first image for free. To submit three images to all three themes, or even three images to one theme (which increases your chances to get published), please make a small donation of $20 to our charitable cause (again, all of that will be donated with the book proceeds). Here’s the link to donate via PayPal - http://goo.gl/OSwT9k

Will you showcase all the submissions? Yes. All submissions will show up in the SmugMug gallery we will setup in the next day or two. Please allow 48 hours for your photo to appear there. 

When will you announce which images made it into the book? We will announce it in early April. 

The last day to submit your images is March 17!

Please help us spread the world about this by sharing this post. 

Questions? Leave them in the comments. ___

I just came back from my "vacation" in Vegas, I couldn't really do what I really wanted, go to Death Valley, but I will be back and I will be prepared next time :) 

I did manage to get this photo while I was departing my home town, doesn't it look cool from up here?

So, one of the best #startrails   photos I've seen, and  by none other than +Elia Locardi ! AMAZING! 

Sleeping Giants || Mt Bromo Indonesia

Surely, I must be staring at some strange and fascinating alien world… Watching the stars dance above this extraordinary landscape... 

Behind the scenes, Post-processing and Camera settings: http://bit.ly/mt-bromo

There are only a few places on our beautiful planet that I would be so confident to call otherworldly. Fewer still that can impose such a profound sense of awe and wonder, where the simple act of seeing is enough to satisfy an avid explorer’s wild curiosity. 

Enter The Tengger Massif

Indonesia houses many visual treasures but Mount Bromo is widely recognized as one of the most impressive. Part of the Tengger Massif and situated in a large caldera, Mt. Bromo is the collapsed remain of a once larger giant. Still active today, it shares proximity with (the active) Mount Semeru, the largest mountain on the island of Java which stands tall at an impressive 3,676 meters (12,060 feet). To give a total sense of scale, the entire area of Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park spans a massive 800 square kilometers. 

I spent the better part of 4 days in the area surrounding these extraordinary mountains, sleeping very little, and investing my twilight hours enjoying and photographing the beautiful stars above. In that time, two of the mornings provided me the perfect recipe for crafting my vision - clear skies full of stars and epic fog below. To top it off, my last morning shooting from Penanjakan 1 was complemented with a beautiful cloudy sky.

Read the entire post here: http://bit.ly/mt-bromo

And you can find out how I was photobombed by the International Space Station. ;)

What is Link Litter? And how to avoid it

Google+ is a moving target of ideas, communication and sharing. As the platform builds and grows, the active plussers have taken strong moves towards best practices and are creating guidelines with terminology to fit the evolving social mediums.

If you're wondering why you're posting content but getting zero engagement or +1's, this is why. You're not posting content that grabs people's attention, your link might be great but no one will click it. Link litter is boring and spammy. You may not intend it to be spam but essentially it is.

What is link litter?

Dropping a link with no explanation or text. Just the title of the article and the link.

Why is link litter bad?

It doesn’t encourage engagement or gather interest. The link is dropped and bam just sits thereg... more »

Dropping a link with no explanation or text. Just the title of the article and the link.

Why is link litter bad?

It doesn’t encourage engagement or gather interest. The link is dropped and bam just sits there gathering dust.

Using this longer form of post style in communities and on regular posts builds interest as well as reaches the people who want to stay on the platform giving them the option of going to read more at the website linked in the post.

And a note about communities, if you're posting the same thing over and over in different communities and they are all hitting your public wall, it looks spammy.

Bahia de Banderas

So here is my photo for #SunsetSaturday . I took this one from a lookout which you have to walk about a thousand stairs (OK, so maybe not many, but it feels like it :P)  but the view is very well worth it :)

Anybody from Las Vegas?

I am going to Las Vegas on September 18, and I was wondering if there are any places I could do some landscape photographs that do not require a car (Public transit is OK) to get there, I would love to go to Red Rock, or Valley of fire, but since I will not have a car I don't know how to get there on a good hour to photograph (AM or sunset). any tips? or tours that I should consider?

or anyone that would like to show me around some other places to
photograph (that are safe :P) other than the strip?

Thanks!

Sunset Over Marietas Islands

Yesterday the sun settled right behind those island on the horizon, but I didn't had my camera with me, so today I was hoping I'd get the shot I saw yesterday  and just one day later, it moved by what seems to me like a LOT :( but I am still pleased with the result, don't you think ? :)

One year ago yesterday, this is what I thought of +Google+ :) 

One year

Can you guys believe its been one year? 

I never liked FB, I had an account there and really soon decided it was not for me, so I deleted it.

Yesterday one year ago I joined +Google+ by an invitation from one of my friends, I was very skeptical at first, thinking (like many still do) that it was a FB clone, but I gave it a try, and boy was I wrong! 

as quick as I decided I did not like FB I was hooked on Google+, photography being the main reason for me, awesome people giving tutorials, tips and tricks via hangouts from everywhere! like (to name a few) +Trey Ratcliff (of course! :P ) +Jay Patel +Alex Koloskov +Scott Detweiler  from whom I learned so many tricks in Photoshop (thanks Scott!)! all this for free! I could not believe I could be so hooked on a "Social Network" but it was beyond "Social" for me, it was a whole "Network" of people that loved what I loved! and best of all shared it with all these strangers that soon became "Online" friends.

Then there is the "Social" part, people like +J. Rae Chipera +Sumit Sen +Gabriela Bardac +Mike Spinak +Barry Blanchard +Eric Leslie +Elia Locardi +Scott Jarvie +Colby Brown +Sandra Parlow  and many, MANY more! (I know I am forgeting a lot of you, sorry)  that not only share great photos but also share great content and have a lot of engagement that makes my photography experience in Google+ even more meaningful.

there is even the "other" side people with whom I do not totally agree with, but its been so cool chatting with them none the less! its not a childish or I am wrong you are right (oh wait... who says that? :P ) kinda of argument, its a very mature exchange of views most notably +Alexander Safonov  who rants so much about the SUL but I still love his photos and would I like to meet him in person? hell yeah! I don't think I ever felt to meet another troll in person  (I kid!... about the troll part :P ) 
 

this might be cheese for many of you but THANKS to ALL, thanks to +Google+ for creating the best social network I've been apart of (even with the new design... still don't like it! but I forgive you :P) and thanks for sharing all these wonderful photos! I hope to see you guys sharing and sharing for years to come!


P.S.  I know Google+ extends way over photography, but thats my reason for being here, and sorry if my long post bored you! and here is a photo for the non-readers :P ___One year ago yesterday, this is what I thought of +Google+ :)
