OK, people might really start feeling like G+ is "just" a platform for photographers.

But I know +Dave Cohen and his team are not the only people working on G+ and suspect we will keep on seeing nice updates for everyone in 2013.

Explore related & popular photos in the lightbox

Viewing and sharing photos is a huge part of the Google+ experience. So today we're excited to launch a new way to find & explore even more awesome pictures.

When you reach the end of an album in the lightbox, we'll now highlight more albums by the photographer, more photos of people in the current album, as well as popular photos across Google+. The end of every album is now the beginning of another adventure!

This feature will be rolling out gradually on desktop, so if you don't see it yet, rest assured you'll see it soon. Enjoy!

Week 3 – Rule of Thirds

Have a fresh drink

So… after a negative space shot last week (https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/104627284419784468591/albums/5830850136533517249/5834134672350412338) with blue as the negative color and white as the subject (kind of), I went with the opposite this week :).

Have a great week.

Wow

Even in a time where we are used to Google Maps kind of views, this panorama from an helicopter is really interesting.

How about more cities shot like this?

Pan and zoom photos on the desktop

Google+ is full of amazing photos, and today we're introducing the ability to pan and zoom when viewing photos from your desktop. To give these features a try, simply open a large photo in the lightbox, then:

– use your mouse wheel to zoom in or out
– click and drag to pan right, left, up or down

Higher resolution photos will offer more to explore, so we're excited to launch pan and zoom just weeks after launching full-size backups of your Android photos (http://goo.gl/KRpjE).

Give 'em a go, and let us know your thoughts as we improve on these and other features!

Here is the photo I just submitted for Plus One Collection 2012

After being lucky enough to have my shot from Sri Lanka selected last year (https://plus.google.com/photos/104627284419784468591/albums/5693500310695329793/5693500649841564130), I will move east a bit with a photo I took in Bangkok, Thailand.

This was during the International Elite MuayThai Festival, which occurred last March as part of "Miracle Thailand Year 2012".

If you follow me you might have seen it already, and it was also the first shot of mine that made it to "the Light Box" (a community which I advise you check out if you have not already : https://plus.google.com/communities/107227825802974578216)

I hope you like it and… can't wait to see which photos make it to the final book 🙂 (check out submissions here: http://www.photographersforgood.com/)

As +Ivan Makarov mentioned, submissions were lacking in sports, which kind of confirmed my decision to submit this!

Interesting post on Google's strategy with Google+ (mostly user acquisition).

Nice to see comments on this sort of posts are progressively troll-free. G+ enthousiasts even seem more numerous than the skeptics. And even them tend to develop their arguments more than the usal "G+ is a ghost town" / "G+ sucks" / "G+ is dead / "Is G+ still around?" / "What is G+?" from a few months back.

Plus-One This: Proof That Google Plus Will Prevail
Remember when Google Plus “flopped »? Well, it didn’t. In fact, it was, and still is, just part of Google’s plan–but everyone (including the media) has trouble seeing it as anything other than a swin…

Week 1 – The New Year

Choices and trajectories

A new year has started and once again we have to take decisions and choose from various paths: Will we climb up the stairs? Woke up an easy slope? Slide on a rail?

2012 was pretty full of changes personally (new appartment, new job… then end of new job, first car bought, etc) and there is no doubt 2013 will be twice as rich (more about that in a few weeks I suppose).

I reckon 2013 will be a mix of stairs, rails and easy slopes :).

Have a great week (and year).
