Some of my more recent shots, taken on a particularly cold morning. Combination of macro shots with a kit lens and a couple others taken with a Jupiter-37AM that I had recently purchased.
Any comments or suggestions please let me know, particularly your tips for manual focussing as I've still not quite got that in the bag yet!

I'm not going for the app until it's made at least 3 more releases! They've right scrimped on their 'test team'! Shocking!

I know which feature I'm waiting for in Google+, the ability to optionally remove a circle from your combined stream. For example the "Following" circle, I want to choose to view that stream but I don't want it in the combined stream.
Anyone else in a similar position, which feature are you looking forward to?

There's a huge general preference for having tick boxes instead of radio buttons for the stream so you can watch several at the same time and drop some out. Send your feedback using the bottom right button so Google get the message.

Just got round to uploading some of my recent photos to G+, any constructive comments most welcome! I'm just starting out with a digital SLR after spending the last 10 years on point and shoot, so it can sometimes feel like a steep learning curve.

Just reserved my shortmail email address, could be an interesting project. Email correspondence in 500 characters or less. The blog states it will kill 99% of spam just by implementing the 500char limit on inbound emails
Matt Cutts originally shared:
 
Interesting. Shortmail.com limits emails to 500 characters. Sounds like it works well with Twitter & Gmail. If you have an account on Twitter, then it's pre-reserved for you on Shortmail. No idea if it will take off, but it's a clever idea.
Email an unavoidable burden for most, and an undeniable time-suck for all. But now, social startup 410 Labs is trying to fix our email woes with Shortmail.com, a service the Baltimore-based company is...
