Do you wonder what are the top G+ photographs published on November 3?

My name is Adde and I shoot strangers in the street. I newly prefer those with hypnotic eyes 8-)



*Nimitz Street"

It's #LongExposuresThursday today? Well then I'm in!

Here is close to 4-minute exposure I took a while back at Mare Island, which is this industrial town where they built huge battle ships during World War II. I think their record is close to 2 weeks for one ship. These were some crazy times.

Now Mare Island is largely an empty spot - but still one of the friendliest places to shoot. Never had any issues with security guards there and tripods. If I tried to do this in San Francisco downtown, guards will be on my back within seconds.

Anyone wants to go and shoot there one of these days?


I uploaded this when I first joined Google+ but I never shared it in a post - apologies if you've seen it before. This is a photo I thought works well for #SilhouettesOnThursday.

I took this in Port-Bergé, Madagascar earlier this year. We had just arrived into the town and pulled up outside our hotel as the sun was setting. I grabbed my camera and started walking quickly up the road looking for a decent place to capture the sunset but soon realised there wasn't much chance because the view was completely obstructed by buildings. I happened to see a schoolyard where there was a (rather dark and dusty!) football game in progress, so I gave up on the sunset and decided to watch the game instead. Fortunately a few rays managed to sneak through a gap in the buildings onto the corner of the pitch, allowing me to take this photo. It's very different to the one I'd originally wanted but I'm really pleased with the result all the same :)

This is a 5 Exposure HDR image that I took while standing on top of a 1936 bi-plane. It was difficult climbing up there with my tripod and metering for the proper aperture was difficult but after 3 passes, I finally got it right. It's a good thing Photomatix has auto allignment becasue the 5 exposures were really far apart. I would like to thank Photomatix and my pilot...George.

Shot of the Day - The Fountain - We're into our second week on Bali, and enjoying the exploration of the beaches stretching up the coast from Canggu.

This image was taken last night during a stunning display of sunset color. For once, I managed not to get completely soaked by the waves...


My contribution to #LongExposureThursday curated by +Le Quoc and +Francesco Gola. A shot I took earlier this year attending +Jim Patterson and +Joshua Cripps's seaside workshop at Santa Cruz.



For #FallFriday

It was a scene that the folks in the West Coast only dream of and the folks in the East coast consider normality: walking amidst a beautiful tree-lined avenue with the only twist being that all the trees are donning their vibrant fall foliages.

And I got to realize that dream when I visited the North lake in the Sabrina Lake Basin during the brilliant fall season of 2010. The access road was line with aspens and cottonwoods taking on a deep orange color the likes of which I had never seen anywhere.

After shooting a dreamy sunrise at the lake, I headed off into the access road hoping to capture the lovely tree-lining.

Shot at ISO 100, 1/2s at F13

It rained once during the trip to the Northeast with +Claudia Leverentz - and of course it was the day that we spent in the Olympic National Forest and the Olympic National Park.

Anyway, from my photographic point of view it was the best day of the whole trip... I love these kinds of images - pity that we couldn't take more because the rain became too heavy (and too windy)

I was argueing with myself in postprocessing whether to do a square image or the one you can see below... I will problably show another version in the future, it changes the result drastically.

So, my participation for #LongExposureThursday - thanks to +Le Quoc and +Francesco Gola - the exposure was 30 seconds...

A year ago I was for a few days in London. A paradise for architectural photographers. I'm was certainly not the last time there, and I'm very hopefull to come again.
Unfortunately, there is a downer: almost nowhere you can use a tripod.

Repost Moeraki Boulders, Otago, New Zealand

When posting earlier I messed up so this is a repost and I apologize to those who have already this this image.

I was just about to add a description for my image for #LongExposureThursday curated by +Francesco Gola and +Le Quoc and #ThirstyThursdayPics curated by +Giuseppe Basile when I noticed +Ilya Genkin had just posted ( the same location with an excellent description of these remarkable boulders. Much better than I would do. Nice to see the differences between the colour and B&W.

every year

every year these mountains go through
a wardrobe of leaves before going bare
a predictable and reassuring juxtaposition
of change and stability

what things do you never want to change? :)

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.
