What is this game?

This was one intense battle and I hadn't a clue as to what was going on.

Side note
I am posting a lot today, is it too much?

Chinatown, NYC G+ Photowalk

ISO 50
10 seconds
Canon 24 1.4 L II

Believe it or not, I bought this lens, tried it out a few times and was not happy with it at 1.4-5.6 so I took it back.....Maybe I should have kept it. :-/


"A Dream Called Garrapata"

Soft evening light and a little bit of wave action to spice it up with.

Photography Tip: There is always something worth shooting

I walk by this industrial building almost every day and it's usually just a boring gray cube not worth a single exposure but that evening, somebody was working late and I happened to be there at twilight. I took the shot with my only lens I had on the camera - the 135m f/2. It was already quite dark so I had to shoot at f/2 and ISO 1000 to get a decent shutter speed of 1/125th.

I cooled down the color temperature quite a bit in Lightroom to enhance the contrast between the cold metal structure of the outside with the warm tungsten lights inside. The square crop was a necessity.

Therefore: If you are passionate about your photography, always have a camera with you - no excuses ;)

My contribution to #MonochromeMonday


Here's a tiny green day gecko for #MacroMonday that very boldly decided to climb onto my hand. Fortunately it was my left hand and I'm right-handed so I was still able to take the shot!

(Edit: here's another post that shows you how big the gecko is: https://plus.google.com/u/0/104380036950579300637/posts/TxA7y7JD1pt)


I just got back to Florida after a few days of traveling and shooting in West Virginia and Tennessee. I met some great people and hopefully got a few good pics. I will be back on the road again shortly but here is one from West Virginia from last year. I am hoping to get to some of my new pictures in about a week once I am back from chasing the colors in the mountains. I hope you all are well!

#Landscape #Photography #Discussion: To Stage or Not to Stage?

__Do you think it is an acceptable practice to stage a scene?
__Where and how do you draw the line? Do you have some guidelines that other can benefit from?

Often time we landscape photographer find our self staging the scene...Here is a blog post that describes the issue: http://www.photographybyvarina.com/photography/q-and-a/staging-a-photo

While the issue is not not strictly confined to Macro/Detailed shots (I often times moved a rock or removed some unwanted sticks or branches from my scene), Macro/Details shots does give us more opportunity to stage the scene. The image below is an example of staged image...I put this coral in front of my camera...it was sitting under the trees behind me.

This discussion is not related to cloning in/out elements in Photoshop, we are talking about staging a scene in the field.


Dark marbled rocks in an alpine river
From my blog: http://www.niophoto.com/dark-marbled-rocks-in-an-alpine-river/

Busy with all sorts of non-photography related stuff at the moment, so re-sharing an image I shot in the Swiss National Park a few months ago. Plenty of rocky mountain rivers over there and when you look carefully you'll find some with very interesting "paintings" on them. I decided to use a long exposure to capture a few of these stones in an alpine river (I used a 24mm f/1.4 lens combined with a B+W ND 1.8 filter).

This photograph was taken about half an hour before sunrise while facing east from the Olympic Mountains. The layered mountains of the Cascades can be seen in the distance across Puget Sound.

What is Plus Extract?

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.

Catherine Hall About us and Google+

Google+ has flourished into a bustling online community for photographers – and one reason is the exceptional contribution of early adopters such as Jarek Klimek, Editor of PhotoExtract magazine.

Jarek had the foresight to research the new social network and created an authoritative list of photographers to follow on Google+.

His viral list has not only become one of the top referring resources of photography trailblazers, it is also shared and watched by leaders such as Guy Kawasaki, Robert Scoble and Darren Rowse.

Jarek has helped introduce the work of great photographers to Google+ photography enthusiasts and I was very excited to share his insights with viewers on TWiT Photo.
