Here is a little fall color for you all by way of an ICM image, panning vertically during the exposure to achieve a sense of motion.


Forest Fall Storms Captured this Fall along the Peak To Peak Highway here in Colorado. The light was pretty unique with the incoming rain storm coming in over the Rockies giving us some nice dramatic light at times. For this shot I went ahead and used my Tobacco Grad ND to bring out the drama in the sky a tad more, along with a CPL, in camera HDR and shot in panoramic mode. I hope you all enjoy it.

The other day I have decided to reshare my portfolio albums for my new followers. After my B&W street photographs on Friday (https://plus.google.com/109489575895255638957/posts/eHfWKhYmdwd) and my color street photographs yesterday (https://plus.google.com/photos/109489575895255638957/albums/5639389014585050369), here are my street portraits.

Different from my street photographs, my street portraits don't necessary try to tell a story, but to show the individual beauty of strangers that I was lucky enough to meet at a park, at a street corner or in a cafe (non exhaustive list of course). They are often not candid and the challenge is therefore to make people relax in front of the camera during the few seconds I interact with them. Not always easy, but always rewarding :-)


One fall day last year, a few friends and I went for an adventure in the Gorge. This is Elkhorn Falls. 1800 feet of strenuous elevation gain off trail, truly one of the most difficult (and beautiful) places I have hiked to.

But this is also a little bit for #SquareSunday


old IR photo I dug up.


My first submission for +Matt Soave's #SquareSunday. This is a square crop of a seascape I took a few weeks ago.

This is another shot from my recent hike up to the summit of Clouds Rest in Yosemite. You can read more about the hike & photos on my weblog:




Here's one for #MountainMonday

Aoraki / Mt Cook viewed from the Kea Lookout track at Sunset. This shot involved a bit of luck - not 10 minutes earlier the entire mountain was engulfed in valley fog.

You would not have known New Zealand's tallest peak was right there. Fortunately as the sun dropped the fog receded revealing the summit.

A magic mountain.

Thanks for viewing.

cheers - Todd

Photo-Factoid: Geologists believe that Aoraki / Mt Cook is made almost entirely from rock and smaller rock-like particles known as stones. Studies continue*.

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.
