She is Red

softly
but strongly
calling your name

in a whisper
she speaks
no one will blame you

so vibrant
and moving
words can't explain

she is red
and on fire
a slow burning flame

Bird of Paradise

I'm not sure why I fancy this photo so much. It does have a bird with food in its mouth. And he's tilting his head to look at me. It does have a pretty plant. It's clean. I like the soft focus in the back. Not one particular aspect of the photo is extra special.

But for me, the sum of the whole is greater than the parts.

Young Love

she was laughing as we ran into the tall grass
a moment of childlike glee
we had never run so fast
falling exhausted to the ground
she laid softly next to me
we stared up at the clouds
and we never felt so free

Volkswagen in Hibernation

It was the last day of a week in Makarska, Croatia. The taxi was coming to take my family back to Sarajevo, Bosnia. I decided to walk down the beach to take a photo of a flower I had noticed the night before but had not been able to shoot well in the dark. On the way down, I noticed this auto. One of my favorite photos of that trip.

The Dreamer

she's dreams in vibrant colors
lives life in black and white
her feet walk in the clouds
kicking the puffs of light

she giggles as she dreams
each day for her is new
she smiles as she soars
she makes her dreams come true

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.
