Things start getting risky on Day 2 of Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt reveals.

It's DAY TWO of REVEALS
from the 2015 - 15TH ROUND
of the +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt!!!

What you are about to experience 
over the course of the next 10 days is pretty awesome.
We play a game - 500 photographers and myself - a photography scavenger hunt.

What  is the scavenger hunt?
Only the most inspiring, creative and fun way to learn your camera, push your limits, experiment, and shoot things in ways you didn't think you could.

I host this event a few times a year for anyone of any level of photography to participate.
I open the game up to 500 Photographers
I give you 10 items to shoot 
I give you a period of time to shoot and enter your photos.
Then I have them judged by amazing photographers  

I then open the albums up to the public - every morning over the course of 10 days. 
There are 10 categories:
This is the first - the "*RISK*" album.

This event is an amazing way to use your camera in new ways. 
It gets you seeing things in new ways,
It helps improve your photography skills, 
gives you a huge audience, 
and let's everyone celebrate each other's successes. 
Make new friends,
and be a part of a community of photographers who care about each other, teach each other, and inspire one another.

The sign up for the next round of the scavenger hunt will be announced on day 10 of reveals from this round.

The group of "scavengers" that participate create a community unlike any other on G+. 
Support, encouragement  friendships even some #huntsmack is enjoyed. 
We become a family over the course of the month. 

This is a negative-free zone - I have zero tolerance for any critiques that are uninvited. 
Please be respectful and remember that every person went out there and took the time to shoot these images 
and put thought into them and tried their best. 
As always, I am proud of every single one of you.

(NONE of the images were taken by ME - this is a collection of images taken by multiple photographers participating in the scavenger hunt. All copyrights apply)

With that - I present to you the "*RISK*" album,
1 item seen in 233 different ways.

Firefighting trains us to sleep light and wake at a moment’s notice with our physiology on alert. Those habits don’t exactly play nice with our sleep hygiene. Of the four stages of sleep, the most important stage for restoring physical vitality is the fourth, when our brain is emitting delta waves. But it takes time for our body to unwind through the three lighter stages and reach that deep level of sleep. Furthermore, our emotional health depends on a stage even deeper than delta – the REM stage, when we dream.

What  is the scavenger hunt?
Only the most inspiring, creative and fun way to learn your camera, push your limits, experiment, and shoot things in ways you didn't think you could.

I host this event every season for anyone of any level of photography to participate.
I open the game up to 500 Photographers
I give you 10 items to shoot 
I give you a period of time to shoot and enter your photos.
Then I have them judged by amazing photographers
(this round's judges were +Mike F Shaw +Robin Griggs Wood +Ron Clifford +mel peifer, and our winner from last round - +Mark Rodriguez 

I then open the albums up to the public - every morning over the course of 10 days. 
Later today I will be posting the winners from this album.
There are 10 categories: This is the first - the "*SOUR*" album. 

See my profile page to check out the "Peace", "Your Worst Habit" and the "Your City" albums, already up.

This event is an amazing way to use your camera in new ways. 
It gets you seeing things in new ways,
It helps improve your photography skills, 
gives you a huge audience, 
and let's everyone celebrate each other's successes. 
Make new friends,
and be a part of a community of photographers who care about each other, teach each other, and inspire one another.

The sign up for the next round of the scavenger hunt will be announced on day 10 of reveals from this round.

The group of "scavengers" that participate create a community unlike any other on G+. 
Support, encouragement  friendships even some #huntsmack is enjoyed. 
We become a family over the course of the month. 

This is a negative-free zone - I have zero tolerance for any critiques that are uninvited. 
Please be respectful and remember that every person went out there and took the time to shoot these images 
and put thought into them and tried their best. 
As always, I am proud of every single one of you.

(NONE of the images were taken by ME - this is a collection of images taken by multiple photographers participating in the scavenger hunt. All copyrights apply)

With that - I present to you the "*SOUR*" album,
1 item seen in 199 different ways.

I haven't shared photographically in awhile but really would like to do so more often with the goal of learning more behind the camera and bumping up my skills in Photoshop.

In capturing this scene, I wanted to first work on long exposure techniques to capture the water and cloud movements.  I purchased a ND10 filter about a year ago and really haven't gotten to play with it much.  The times I have, I was disappointed with my work.  I've found even with the 10 stop reduction, it's still pretty bright when trying to capture the cloud movement in broad daylight.  My next attempt will be during an nice sunset at a sportsmen's lake near my house.

I also wanted to play with luminosity masks and digital blending of exposures.  I'm not happy with the HDR software and other methods to auto-blend exposures.  There's just too many artifacts that aren't acceptable to the perfectionist in me.  So I wanted to give it some effort manually.  I used the articles and luminosity masks provided by +Jimmy McIntyre on his blog.

I haven't shared the originals but I have to say, I'm pretty pleased.  I've used Jimmy's techniques on some other shots I've taken in the past and really like the results so far.  Once I get some more time to play around, I'll share some more.___

Why net neutrality is going down.

Because our government is for sale to the highest bidder, and the highest bidder wants to kill net neutrality. 

The Sunlight Foundation looks at lobbying by pro- and anti-net neutrality factions. The anti position is wildly outspending the pro position.
