Thomas Hawk6,156,0612,500 Kick Ass Google+ Photographers (part 4 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.  Thus far, I've shared last name A-Da, Da-Ho, Ho-Mi.  Today's , part 4 of 5, today, represents Mi-Sh.  I'll share the last remaining circle tomorrow.  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 part 5 and thanks again to all of the great photographers on G+ who make this place such a delight to hang out.Part 1-5:  http://goo.gl/17ujpnPart 2-5:  http://goo.gl/3vn0OCPart 3-5:  http://goo.gl/lyVn6f*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.2013-09-04 15:53:284916170106CC G+

I would to thank each for their help.I have chosen the name of the circle carefully to try to accurately represent the contents of what will be in the two circles. The script / finding namesThe script was provided by CircleCount and looks through the tagline of every profile on CircleCount to find the word "photo" or "foto".  If a photographer doesn't have a CircleCount profile they won't be found.  If one of these two words isn't in their tagline, they won't be found.  A few people I know have fallen into this flaw in my thinking.  To fix this, CircleCount has asked me to provide a "whitelist" of names that the script misses.  The white-list list adds another 30 or so names to the result.   Keyword world a personal viewpointIf you don't use the word photographer to describe yourself how do you expect people to find you in a search. "Searcher of cute pixels", "Creative spirit that makes art out of light"; these might be poetic, they might touch your soul but the world looks for content based on keyword searches.  SEO is going to do the same. Consider carefully the words sou use to describe yourself if you want people to find you using search technology. How was the list processedThe list was sorted by the level of activity.  People that hadn't posted in the last month (approximately April 5 to May 5th) were removed from the list.  This included people that hadn't posted or people that had posted only once in the past 4 weeks.  Again, this has some flaws but I'm mostly happy with the results.  People who are posting only in private communities o2013-05-18 13:17:2050114186132CC G+

Of course there will be mitigating factors...Because of the way that Google no longer presents every person who adds me to their circles to me it is quite possible that I have missed some pretty good photographers.  If I am following you, chances are that you are already in one of these circles or in my "check later" circle.  If you think you have been missed, tag a comment on one of these posts and I will check your profile out for inclusion.  Guidelines for inclusion can be found at:https://plus.google.com/u/0/103752943025677384806/about#circleshare #circlesharing #circleoftheday #handpickedcircles   #sharedcircles #sharedcircle #sharedpubliccircles   #fullcircleshare #addmetoyourcircles #pixelworld   #pixelworldcircle #circleoftheday #bestsharedcircle #thebestcirclesongoogle #thebestcircle2013-04-18 10:40:273981217CC G+

Auto Awesome Hearts!

Just in time for Valentine's Day, we launched Auto Awesome Hearts! Just upload a photo of kissing or hugging, and Google Photos will add hearts automatically.

It even works on bear hugs. ;)

Congratulations to +Erik Murphy-Chutorian's team!

She's a body builder

Now for a quick break from leopards... and onto lions! Ripples are the theme here: her muscles are rippling, the water is rippling, and she's shooting ripples of death rays from her eyes. pew pew!

For the most part, the big cats (leopards, lions, cheetahs) pay little attention to us. I guess that's because we're neither predator nor prey to them, thanks to the change in local industry from hunting to photography. The older cats are still a bit wary of people, but the younger ones walk by as if we're not even there.

This photo was taken on safari in Botswana with +Andy Biggs and +Grant Atkinson.

Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe

When you first see the memorial, your first impression is that it's a rigid grid of columns. When you walk through it though, you find out that the ground is uneven and the columns are slightly leaning in random directions. It gives you a slightly uneasy feeling. +Aravind Krishnaswamy and I visited the memorial in Berlin earlier this year and spent quite a long while wandering around in it.

Tweak your edits on Google+ Photos

When you edit photos on Google+, we make the edits non-destructively so you can always start over - that's old news. :) Today, we've gone a step further. Now, you can see the list of filters you've applied and change the settings after the fact. Nice!

We've also launched Auto Awesome Effects, which puts a stylistic spin on your photos. And with Edit lists, you can see exactly what Auto Awesome Effects did to your photo. A rare glimpse into Google's Magic Picture Machine, as +Mike Elgan calls it. :)

#googleplusupdate   #googlephotos  

Google+ Photos: edit your previous edits, and Auto Awesome Effects

If you’re afraid of commitment, then you probably don’t edit your photos online :-) Reason being: many services overwrite (aka “destroy”) your images during the editing process. So once you save a change, you can’t change your mind.

In contrast: Google+ Photos offers non-destructive editing on Android, iOS and Chrome, and it syncs your edits to the cloud. So you can start editing on one device, continue on another, and your originals are always available. Today we’re making the Chrome experience even more flexible by letting you go back and adjust your previous edits. (Commitment-phobes rejoice!) For example:

- Suppose you want to re-crop a photo but leave the other effects alone. Or keep your choice of frames, but turn up the brightness and contrast.
- Now you can, and you don’t have to start from scratch. Just open your photo in the Chrome editor, click on “Edits,” and you’ll be able to adjust the edits you’ve already made.
- When you settle on a look you really like, you can also copy those edits and apply them to another photo.

Even if you don’t have time to edit your images, we can still help your photos look their best. Take Auto Awesome, for instance: when you back up your photos and videos to Google+, we can gift you fun new versions automatically. These creations range from animated GIFs to professional-quality movies, and today we’re adding a new flavor: Auto Awesome Effects.

Now when you upload a land or cityscape photo, Effects can stylize your image to make the subject really pop. You can enjoy the new photo as is, or open the editor to make further adjustments. Either way it’s easy (and fun!).

Both updates are rolling out today, so take some pictures, try some edits, and let us know what you think.

The Reichstag dome is one of the most interesting architectural subjects I've photographed. I love all the swoopy lines. Thanks, Berlin!

Reichstag tornado

Another view of the Reichstag dome. The Reichstag building burned down in 1933 and got bombed during WWII. The glass dome was added after reunification. In 1999, the German parliament finally moved back in.

It's pretty neat to compare the new dome against the original one from the 1800s: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reichstag_building

Reichstag warp core

This is inside the Reichstag dome in Berlin. The Reichstag building has a long history, but it's currently (again) where the German parliament meets.

I like to imagine that this is what a Star Trek warp core would have looked like had it been invented in Germany. Like if Audi built a starship. :)

Berlin Hauptbahnhof

"Hauptbahnhof" means "main station". I think it looks like the head and shoulders of a giant robot with two missile arrays strapped to its shoulders. The tower with "DB" at the top is the antenna that he's using to receive targeting coordinates from the airborne support craft.

That cyclist is doomed.

#Hoffsome!

In Google Photos, we've made a habit of doing April Fool's jokes that actually work. :)

This year, if you upload a photo of people, +David Hasselhoff will photobomb it!

Introducing Auto Awesome Photobombs with +David Hasselhoff 

Google+ Auto Awesome is all about fun surprises that bring your photos to life. Capture a quick burst of photos, and you’ll get an animated GIF. Take a series of portraits, and you’ll get a photobooth-style collage.

Today we’re announcing Auto Awesome Photobombs. What’s more fun than Benedict Cumberbatch photobombing U2 at The Oscars (http://goo.gl/WrLi1Z)? Or Michelle Obama at The White House (http://goo.gl/0LMPCa)? A good photobomb can turn an ordinary photo into something special and put a smile on your face. Now with Auto Awesome, celebrities can make a spontaneous appearance in your pictures!

We’re starting with +David Hasselhoff naturally, everyone’s favorite crime-fighting rockstar lifeguard.

To get your own photobomb, upload a new self portrait or group photo with friends, and leave a little room for The Hoff. He might just make a surprise appearance. :-)

P.S. You can also mention +David Hasselhoff in your public posts and comments. If you’re lucky he’ll add some awesome to the conversation.

Cuban

There's so much about this photo that says "Cuba" to me. The walls in the background: brightly painted yet crumbling. The bars, like the economic situation holding back so many Cubans. The look of defiance and determination on the man's face despite his circumstances. I can't claim to know Cuba well after just one week, but what I did see were resourceful people who love life and are determined to make a better future. This was taken during +David Hobby's Cuba trip in 2013.

On a technical note, I think it's pretty cool that one of my favorite photos from 2013 was taken on a +Sony mirrorless camera. It was an NEX-7 with the Zeiss 24mm f/1.8.

Plus One Collection III: 4 days left!

Don't let the deadline pass you by! There are 4 days left to submit to the next +Plus One Collection. Instructions for submission are in +Ivan Makarov's post below.

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://www.photographersforgood.com/Plus-One-Collection/Volume-III

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. ___Plus One Collection III: 4 days left!

King of the tree

Here's a cheetah looking regal. Actually, he had just peed on the tree. This was quite an exciting moment for us. :) In the background is a giraffe who was watching the cheetah very carefully.

Photo nerdery:

A fair number of my "lazy landscape" photos were taken with fast shutter speeds. 1/5000 sec on this one! Whenever the animals were on the move, it was a race to guess where they were headed and get there before the action started. Several times, the interesting stuff happened while the truck was still violently bouncing around. I got in the habit of switching to a fast shutter speed when we started moving.

Of course, once the truck was stopped, I switched back to a slow shutter speed (and lower ISO), but maybe not as slow as you might think. People moving around in the truck were enough to necessitate 1/400 or 1/800... more »

New Goodies on Photos for Android!

We're rolling out a new version of the Android G+ app with a bunch of great stuff for Photos.

- Brand new photo editor: now more powerful and non-destructive!
- All Photos view: includes photos from your phone and from online
- Date scrubber: in All view, drag the scrubber to quickly go back in time

Congratulations to +Todd Kennedy and team!

#googleplusupdate   #googlephotos  

New photo features in Google+ for Android

Today’s update to Google+ for Android is all about photos. In particular, the app includes:

Non-destructive photo editing across devices
Starting today you can start your edits on one device, and continue (or start over) on another. This means you can backup full-resolution photos from your desktop, edit them in seconds on your phone, then add some finishing touches from your tablet. (And you can revert to your originals at any time!) The technical term for this experience is non-destructive editing in the cloud, and we think you'll really enjoy it.

Brand new filters and creative tools
Now when you edit your photos, you’ll have a powerful set of tools (like crop and rotate), 1-touch filters, and Snapseed-inspired enhancements (like Drama, Retrolux, and HDR Scape). Mix and match to make your photos look their absolute best.

A single view of all your photos
The new ‘All’ view displays your entire photo library — whether it’s on your current device, or backed up in the cloud. If your library is really large (> 10s of thousands of photos), the app won’t show all your photos initially. But stay tuned, because we’re supporting larger and larger libraries over the next few weeks.

An easy way to browse your photos by date
In addition to search, there’s now another way to find your photos fast. Just swipe through your photos in the ‘All’ view, and look for the scroll bar on the right. Dragging the scroll bar up or down will quickly move you forwards or backwards in time.

The app is rolling out gradually to Google Play (v4.3, http://goo.gl/ruuHW), so check back soon if you don’t see it yet. #googleplusupdate  ___New Goodies on Photos for Android!

Don't miss the submission window for this year's +Plus One Collection!

#PlusOneCollection2013

TOMORROW Plus One Collection 2013 begins

Thank you for your patience! I've been buried on personal and work front, and had zero time to spend on this. But I'm ready to take on the new volume of +Plus One Collection photo book, which we will publish this spring. All details about submission process will come out tomorrow morning.

But here's the high level overview of the process -

1. We'll launch the submission process.
2. We'll launch the Kickstarter/Indiegogo campaign for the cost of the book printing.
3. We'll pick the photos for the book
4. We'll design and print the book.
5. The book will go on sale.

We're getting a late start this year (all my fault!), but I'm confident we can ship the book before the summer begins - or so will be the goal.

We'll also be recruiting volunteers to help us with the process, so stay tuned. 

I can't wait!  Please share the news and remember to use #PlusOneCollection2013  tag when you do. 

Thanks to +Andy Lee for designing this year's poster, and I'm happy to announce Andy is back on board with this with the design skillz that made the last two books so beautiful. ___Don't miss the submission window for this year's +Plus One Collection!

To infinity and beyond... in both directions! :)

A new feature I was working on in G+ Photos recently rolled out. Now after you use the calendar to jump to a time (what were you doing in Feb 2012?) you can now scroll upwards and we'll load in more recent photos as you scroll.

Nowadays, infinite scrolling downwards is done a lot of places in the web; it was an interesting exercise to implement it in the other direction.___To infinity and beyond... in both directions! :)

Auto Awesome Hearts!

Just in time for Valentine's Day, we launched Auto Awesome Hearts! Just upload a photo of kissing or hugging, and Google Photos will add hearts automatically.

It even works on bear hugs. ;)

Congratulations to +Erik Murphy-Chutorian's team!

We have a couple new photo editing goodies for you today! Check it out: HDR Scape and zoom. More details in André's post below.

Adding HDR Scape and Zoom to the Google+ photo editor

The Google+ photo editor brings the power of Snapseed to the Chrome browser, and today we’re adding two new features to the mix: HDR Scape and Zoom.

1. HDR Scape

With HDR Scape you can apply high dynamic range (HDR) effects to a single image, with a single click. HDR Scape is currently available in the Snapseed apps for Android and iOS, and today’s update brings the filter to Google+ on the web. You can see some examples here: https://plus.google.com/s/hdr%20scape.

2. Zoom

Seeing your images up close is an important part of the editing process — from checking the focus point, to seeing how the “Drama” filter has changed your pixels. With today’s update, you can now use the magnifying glass to zoom in or out.

To give either feature a try, simply open one of your photos in Google+ (using the Chrome browser), and click “Edit.” We’re rolling out these updates gradually, so check back soon if you don’t see them yet. #googleplusupdate___We have a couple new photo editing goodies for you today!

In case there was any doubt, we're flying Southwest. :) I feel bad for that guy in the distance who's pushing the truck in the snow.

The NFC/WiFi on the Sony A7 works well. It made the difference between posting this photo vs letting it rot in a dark corner of a hard drive...

"You go first."
"No, you go first."

This is the cornice at the entrance to Lover's Leap, a black diamond run at Vail. Cautious skiers find a safe place to ease their way in, but to do it for real, you have to catch some air. :)

Christmas cheetah!

When you're driving across 60,000 acres of land, it can be pretty hard to find an animal as small as a cheetah. Our clever guide noticed a lone giraffe standing by itself on the savanna, though. Standing and staring... with kind of a dumb look on its face. :)

Turns out he was staring at a cheetah that was chilling in the grass. A few minutes later, the giraffe's buddies came out of the trees and joined the festivities. Cheetahs are too small to take down a full grown giraffe, but occasionally they can nab a baby giraffe. Cheetahs completed +Andy Biggs's "Big Cat Trifecta" for our trip: lions, leopards, cheetahs.

Merry Christmas, everyone!

Lions are not house cats

A few posts back (http://goo.gl/QYLPjY), we saw that leopards are not house cats. In case there was any confusion, lions are also not for petting or snuggling. :)

About half of a lion's diet is scavenged. This lion (and his buddy, another male lion) chased away a cheetah and her cubs to steal the impala they had caught. Our guide said that the cheetah would probably have to wait a day before she would have the energy to catch another meal. We worried for her cubs. Our guide said they'll be fine though because this particular cheetah is a very good mother.

Lion lazy morning

Lions (and leopards and cheetahs) spend a lot of their time sleeping when it's hot. Believe it or not, that tail flip in the background was quite an event. :)

Males form coalitions so they can more easily fight off rival males. They patrol their territory together and share food and mating rights. We saw a couple coalitions of 2, but it's not uncommon to have bigger coalitions of 3 or 4 lions.

She's a body builder

Now for a quick break from leopards... and onto lions! Ripples are the theme here: her muscles are rippling, the water is rippling, and she's shooting ripples of death rays from her eyes. pew pew!

For the most part, the big cats (leopards, lions, cheetahs) pay little attention to us. I guess that's because we're neither predator nor prey to them, thanks to the change in local industry from hunting to photography. The older cats are still a bit wary of people, but the younger ones walk by as if we're not even there.

Two new Auto Awesomes

We launched two new types of Auto Awesome in time for the holidays:
1. twinkling Christmas trees
2. snowing... snow!

We realize there are many places where it doesn't snow this time of year. In fact, some people live in the desert! I suggested doing sandstorms for those areas, but my idea got cut. :)

#googleplusupdate #googlephotos

Two new kinds of #AutoAwesome: Twinkle and Snow

Just in time for the holidays, we’re rolling out two new ways to make your Google+ photos more awesome, automatically:

1) Twinkle: upload a new photo of something that sparkles (like a Christmas tree or a chandelier), and we'll gift you a version with lights that actually twinkle.

2) Snow: upload a new photo with snow to Google+, and we'll gift you a version with snow that’s actually falling.

In both cases, you'll get a notification when your #AutoAwesome image is ready. We hope these features help you celebrate the ‘wonder’ in winter wonderland! #googleplusupdate___Two new Auto Awesomes

Kitty caught a mouse antelope

Ok, so leopards aren’t house cats after all. :)

This leopard caught a reedbuck (a type of antelope) and chose a really unfortunate tree to stash her prey. It was covered in thorns! It was painful to watch her paw at the thorny branches and delicately pick her way down to the ground.

If you look closely, you'll see two spots just above the top row of whiskers. On the other side, she’s only got one spot. This leopard is called Two-One. The local guides have different designations for the other leopards according to their spots.

Kitty scratching post

The nice thing about sleeping in a tree is that your whole bedroom is a scratching post! I was amazed at how much leopards behave like house cats, as you can see from the last 3 photos. Don't worry, I'll soon be posting some photos that show how leopards are very much not like house cats. :)

Now for a bit of photographic nerdery. The background on this photo is completely white. That’s because the leopard was in shadow and the bright sky was behind him. Exposing the photo properly for the dark leopard forces the bright sky to get blown out. Neat, right?

Kitty stretch

Continuing on the theme of leopards acting like house cats, here’s a photo of the same leopard getting comfy on his tree branch. All you cat owners out there have probably seen your pet do this. :)

This guy has a knick in his left ear, and his left eye is a bit droopy. It’s common for older males to have some battle damage. The more experienced guides can identify the leopards by their spots, but for us n00bs, it helped to have more obvious signs like that ear.

This was taken on safari in Botswana with +Andy Biggs and +Grant Atkinson. Highly recommended!

How I feel after safari

I just came back from safari with +Andy Biggs and +Grant Atkinson in Botswana. Here are a couple things I learned:

1. Leopards are like house cats - they like to sleep all day.
2. Big cat narcolepsy is contagious. After 10 days of safari, all I want to do is sleep all day, too.

More photos to come... right after a nice long nap. :)

Google's Magic Picture Machine goes beyond science fiction.

Science fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke said that "any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." But even Clarke never envisioned Google’s Magic Picture Machine.

The new Google+ photo and video features announced today by +Vic Gundotra are obviously an incredible benefit to users, unlike anything else out there. 

But can we take a moment to marvel at the technology behind it?

Let's start with a magic trick:

It’s truly indistinguishable from magic."

More Nik + Google+ goodness!

Here's a nod to the enthusiasts who shoot RAW. We'd love to get your feedback on the quality of our new RAW converter.

#googleplusupdate #googeplusphotos

Improving RAW-to-JPEG conversion on Google+

We've supported full-size photo backups for almost a year now, and as a result many of you have been storing your RAW images on Google+. Of course: any time you view RAW files we convert them to JPEGs -- to optimize the file size, and keep the service fast.

Starting today, and thanks to +Nik Photography, our RAW-to-JPEG conversion is now significantly improved. RAW images from more than 70 different cameras will look better as a result (full list below), and we’re tuning additional models over time.

Try uploading your own RAW image, and let us know what you think! From there you can edit the JPEG copy as much as you'd like with our new editor (http://goo.gl/6QKhqW), and download the original RAW file whenever you want. #googleplusupdate

AutoEnhance is even enhancier!

And don't forget, you can edit the result by clicking "Edit" at the top of the lightbox. One of the best things about the editor is that it shows you the settings that AutoEnhance chose for your photo. Kind of neat if you're geeky like me. :)

Five enhancements to Auto Enhance

Auto Enhance makes improvements to every photo you add to Google+, highlighting important details and helping your images look their best. Today we're upgrading Auto Enhance in five important ways, making your photos even more beautiful: 

1) It does a better job of illuminating faces, even in darker exposures.
2) It's better at removing color casts (like the blue-ish “haze” you might see in your snowboarding pics).
3) It identifies and lightens shadows, especially in landscape images.
4) It selectively brightens night scenes, keeping the focus on your main subject.
5) And… it uses skin tones to calibrate other enhancements like fill light and warmth, ensuring a natural look and feel.

To give Auto Enhance a try, simply upload some photos then view them in the lightbox. From there you can refine Google's enhancements (http://goo.gl/6QKhqW), or undo them entirely. So add a new photo, and let us know your thoughts! #googleplusupdate___AutoEnhance is even enhancier!

And don't forget, you can edit the result by clicking "Edit" at the top of the lightbox. One of the best things about the editor is that it shows you the settings that AutoEnhance chose for your photo. Kind of neat if you're geeky like me. :)

- an old building
- a sidewalk
- a guy on a bike
Yep, pretty much covered the street photography bases here. :)

This is what I was doing when +Aravind Krishnaswamy took this photo: https://plus.google.com/photos/111036275428879931853/albums/5924948752503916145/5924948750640349778
You can actually see my composition in his photo of my camera :)

Edited in the G+ Photo Editor!

Photo Editing in Google+

I'm super excited and proud of our team for this launch. The editing tools are fast, easy, and high quality - not a common combination for photo editing tools on the web. Some of you may notice a bit of +Nik Photography magic here. :)

Get creative with the new photo editing tools in Google+

Sometimes a photo needs a little extra touch to truly stand out. To help you customize your images, we’re launching new photo editing tools right within Google+. They’re all based on the power of Snapseed, and available in the Chrome browser (thanks to its Native Client technology). Here are a few of the fun things you can do:

* Auto Enhance already makes the photos you add to Google+ look great. Now you can customize and fine tune these adjustments if you have a different look in mind.
* Selective adjust lets you make edits to specific parts of your image, so you can make that summer sky look even more blue without affecting the beach in the foreground.
* Filters like Vintage, Drama, Retrolux or Black and White give your photos a new look. Add the finishing touch with a frame.

To give the new editing tools a try, open one of your own photos in Chrome and click on “Edit” in the lightbox. You can always undo any changes you make or revert to the original image.

If you're not using the Chrome browser, you can still crop and rotate your photos in Google+ -- in fact we're making these basic editing options easier to find up front, right next to the "Edit" button. And of course on mobile, Snapseed-inspired editing is available in both the Android and iOS Google+ apps.

p.s. We're rolling out these updates gradually, so check back soon if you don't see them yet. #googleplusupdate  ___Photo Editing in Google+

You may have seen awesome the t-shirt that +Darwin Yamamoto made for the G+ Photos Auto Awesome launch. This shirt was printed in such low quantities that I couldn't even get one! So what did I do?

I made my own rendition of the design and printed one for myself. Lucky coincidence, Zazzle 23 hrs left on promo code BACK2URSTYLE for 30% off!

What do you think? :)

Ok, so mine isn't an exact copy of Darwin's. In particular, my unicorn is puking 5 colors instead of just 4. And mine may or may not have a typo in "auto awesome" on the back of the shirt. Yup, that's about all that's different between the two... :)

Cuban Pedicab

During our trip to Cuba with +David Hobby, pedicabs were one of our favorite ways to get around. They're cheap and fast. It was especially fun when a big group would hire several pedicabs and they'd race to the destination. :)

Google+ Photos app: now available on all Chromebooks!

Bringing your Google+ photos to all Chromebooks

Keeping hundreds or thousands of photos backed up and organized can be a challenge. We wanted to make that process a little easier, so earlier this summer we released the Google+ Photos app for Chromebook Pixel.

Today we’re making the app available in the Chrome Web Store for all Chromebooks, in 52 languages. Here’s a quick recap:

1) When you plug an SD card into your Chromebook, the app will automatically get to work and back up your new photos to Google+ (for your eyes only, of course). 

2) When you’re offline, you can still view your most recent photos.

3) Your top shots will be highlighted as you back them up, making it easier to organize and share your favorites.

4) Easily share individual photos, sets of photos, or an entire album right from the app. Simply select the images you want, then click 'Share.'

5) Auto Enhance makes improvements to each photo you add, making your pictures look great. And Auto Awesome creates fun new versions of your photos like short animations and photobooth-style collages.


Install it on your Chromebook now: g.co/chromephotos

I don't usually post random stuff like this to Public, but this is hilarious! The only dog I know who's this disciplined is +Dave Cohen's +Sparky the Dog.
