Did I say there was no color in the sky last night? My saturation slider thought otherwise...

Ooops...
This is what it looks like when 20 minutes' worth of fireworks on three separate barges are all set off at once.  That's what happened tonight at San Diego's "Big Bay Boom", 5 minutes before the show was supposed to start.  Instead of 20 minutes of fireworks beautifully choreographed to music, we got 4 huge fireballs that lasted about 20 seconds.  (There were actually 4 barges, but I only had 3 in my viewfinder.)  A "technical glitch" is being blamed; no one was hurt.

I was lucky to even get this shot, since this occurred 5 minutes before the show was supposed to have started.  At first, we all thought it was just an attention-getter; we quickly realized there was far more firepower here than that.  I raced over to my camera, composed this shot and took one exposure.  Then it fizzled to nothing but a ball of smoke.  The whole event took about 20 seconds.

White Mountain Star Trail
Tried a new method of blending; a traditional stacked star trail, with a static Milky Way shot to provide more stars and the Milky Way in the background.  Hope you like it.

How do the PERSONAL TOPs of G+ Photos Work?

1) Any photography enthusiast can create a PERSONAL TOP consisting of his/her own Google Plus photographs. This means any existing PERSONAL top has been created by the author of the photographs that are in the TOP; there are no PERSONAL TOPs that were created automatically.

2) Only G+ photographs published by you in one of your Google+ posts should appear in your PERSONAL TOP. This means any posts you have reshared or your own posts without a G+ photo should not appear. No GIFs should be in the TOPs.

3) Contrary to the DAILY TOPs are the PERSONAL TOPs sorted solely on popularity - we use Plus PopRank to sort these. The Plus PopRank formula is: Plus PopRank(of a post) = +1s + (2 x comments) + (4 x reshares)

Example: Let's say that a particular post has 25 +1s, 10 comments and 3 reshares. This means its Plus PopRank is 57 (= 25 + 2x10 + 4*3).
