The Path to St. Andrews, Kiev

Posted a few months ago, but many likely have not seen it, so here it is again. Plus, it's been tweaked a bit, so it's a better photo now! :-)

Week 16 ~ Easter

Talk to the Egg

Wait, you're saying. Week 15 is Easter, yes? Why yes! Yes it is! But Easter is not celebrated on the same day around the world, and a number of places I'm sure don't even recognize this day called Easter. I happen to live in one of those places that celebrate Easter on a different calendar, so I swapped the week 15 and the week 16 themes around.

For many of you, Easter is a distant memory. But in this part of the world, Easter was yesterday (April 15), and today is still part of the Easter holiday.

If I had been aware of the microphone there, I likely would have moved around the best that I could have and tried to recompose. But it was crowded enough around here, and you wanted to click the shutter before someone found a way to crash your shot.

Independence Square, Kiev ~ by +Matt Shalvatis.

I'm dipping back into the archives a bit, since it's been many months since this has been posted, and many of you have not yet seen this.

This was taken on a rainy Sunday evening, July 2011. Normally, this place would have a lot more people on a Sunday in the summer, but I guess the rain sent many home early.

(Still) Waiting for Spring ~ by Matt Shalvatis

OK, our trees are not quite this barren. They finally started to show some green the last few days. Still, it's a way to go before spring is fully here.

Decrepit 2 ~ Matt Shalvatis

I've got those home renovation blues. ~ in HDR

Wow, I definitely fell behind a bit on my photography. Funny, you think you can manage a process like home renovation, but truth be told, it manages you! It manages every little aspect of you.

But of course I thought it would be manageable. My idea of home renovation is to put a new picture on the wall. My wife, needless to say, has a slightly more nuanced view of what home renovation should be. And her view overrides my view. Needless to say...

But by the end of this month, it is hoped that normality will rear its head and banish the home renovation blues for good. And I may just reward myself with a special photography outing; something that I have promised myself for a while but have yet gotten around to. Or maybe the renovation will still not be done, and I'll have to put it off for another time...

(NOTE: That's not my home in the picture!)

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).

The Google+ TOPs on PhotoExtract

You can find two kinds of Google Plus TOPs on PhotoExtract.com:

1) Plus Extract TOPs - DAILY sets of TOP G+ photographs, which were chosen by an algorithm that combines automatic steps and manual curation. These DAILY TOPs are NOT based solely on popularity, and users with a small number of followers have a chance to be featured in the TOP.

2) PERSONAL TOPs, which contain Google+ photos published by photographer who created a TOP. These photographs are sorted solely by their G+ popularity measured by our Plus PopRank.
