Flickr has its own way of finding and presenting the TOP shots daily. The same is true for 500px, for Smugmug and for many other websites, which are popular among photography fans.
So we tried to make the Google+ photography paradise even better.
It's your DAILY dose of TOP Google Plus photographs, which were chosen by an algorithm that combines automatic steps and manual curation.
This means that the 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.
We use Google+ API for the automatic steps; Jarek Klimek is responsible for curation and communication with the authors.
We strongly respect the authors and their rights. Jarek Klimek contacts every photographer featured in all DAILY TOPs and if any author decides that he/she doesn't want to be featured in the TOP, we respect this absolutely.
The Plus Extract daily tops are independent from other PhotoExtract functions.
There is no connection between the photographs presented in the Plus Extract project (those photos are embeded from G+) and photographs that were uploaded to our regular photography gallery or presented in our photography magazine.
