#FloralFriday - thanks to +Tamara Pruessner

OK, it's my first and probably only participation in the floral category. Somehow I can't get the connections to plants as well as my good friend +Ulrike Hartmann , who you should really visit if you want to see some gorgeous flower art...

Anyway, I was in a botanical garden near Stuttgart with Ulrike and I had this picture... Good enough to show? You decide...

Enjoy (I hope) and have a colorful friday...

I took this in September in Grand Tetons NP at the Snake River overlook made famous by none other than Ansel Adams. His view no longer exists. The trees have long since grown to obstruct the bend in the river. Thousands of people still flock to photograph it, however. I hadn't planned on photographing this location for those reasons. I had only pulled into the overlook after sunset to cook some dinner in my van. As I arrived the last of the photographers was pulling out. A few minutes later, the period of twilight I have now dubbed "Salmon Light" began, bathing the scene in wonderful pink light. I couldn't help but get my camera out. The image is no Ansel Adams, but having the view to myself in the dusky calm for a few minutes was a great experience and I'm glad to have this image to remember it by.


Autumn has never been so beautiful

Taken on the fifth day of the awesome "Autumn at Voronet Expedition" We went to visit at Vatramoldovitei a Hutsuls house up on this huge hill. It was very cold and fog everywhere. We where a group of 20-25 photographers and this simple family welcomed us like we where kings and queens and I'm not exaggerating. They had a big table filled with lots of great traditional food, there was live music played by to man one with a violin and one with a flute outside in the cold. It was unreal what this little family did to welcome us a group of photographers in their home.
When we finally decided that it was time to turn back home we had another surprise the fog was lifting and we could make some picture with the stunning autumn.
This was a bit of my 2009 autumn story. More to come this days from this expedition that I will never forget.

If you want to know the Hutsuls are an ethno-cultural group of Ukrainian highlanders who for centuries have inhabited the Carpathian mountains, mainly in Ukraine, the northern extremity of Romania (in the areas of Bukovina and Maramureş).
Enjoy !



One of the shots from this morning's session with Canadian-born, Tokyo-based musician Jeff Nicholson. Not a great morning to be shooting - as it was [on and off] pissing down with rain. However, a few bridges offered some nice cover and we got a whole variety of shots done - from posed portraits, to natural portraits, to something a bit more crazy and fun... like this.

Will post some more from the set sometime this week, as part of an article on my blog.

Find out about Jeff here:

The geeky bit:

Nikon D700
Nikkor 80-200mm f/2.8 @ 80mm and f/3.5
200 ISO
1/160th sec

This is one frame shot in single-shot mode, not part of a sequence of motor-driven shots to try and nail the pose. Each shot we made with him jumping was one shot. We nailed every one. It's all about timing and the AF-C with 3D tracking focus really helps you nail it. Big thing Nikon has going for their AF system.

AF-C with 51-point 3D tracking
1 x SB800 on a tripod at camera right, with a Lumiquest softbox 3 on it. Flash powered 1/8th power and fired in SU-4 mode using the on-camera flash as trigger. On-camera flash at 1/64th power so it doesnt effect the exposure.

Slight tweaks of saturation, contrast and colour balance in Photoshop but apart from that very much straight out of the camera.


Before the Storm - Namibia, Africa This shot was taken a little before the other one I posted a few days ago - you can see the other one here..Which one do you prefer? https://plus.google.com/109330684746468207713/posts/4X5inhoDL2w

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.
