+Google just cut the price of #NIK by 70%!!! This is a great time to be a photographer!
 
The Nik Collection by Google: photography first, for professionals and more

Here on the Google+ Photos team, we're busy building tools for all kinds of photographers. Today, and for all the professionals out there, we're bundling the complete set of Nik plug-ins as the Nik Collection by Google. We're especially excited about three things:

1) It's more affordable. The entire set of plug-ins for Photoshop, Lightroom and Aperture only costs $149 (versus the previous $499).

2) It's really powerful. The Nik Collection by Google gives you tools for everything from noise reduction and HDR imaging to creative effects and image sharpening (and lots more).

3) It's free to try. You can visit niksoftware.com for a 15-day free trial of the Collection.

If you've already purchased one or more Nik plug-ins in the past, then don't worry, we've got you covered. In fact: we're going to upgrade you to the entire Nik Collection by Google for free. Just keep an eye out for emailed instructions in the next few days.

Once you've got a Nik Collection shot that you're excited about, feel free to share it with the Google+ community. Simply tag your public pictures with  #nikcollection , and we'll reshare some favorites from the +Google+ page. We can't wait to see what you'll create!

Amazing shot by David Hobby!
 
Sometimes I think I pay too much attention to light. Honestly, I was so taken with the light on the horse when I was shooting this evening that I didn't even notice his dining companion until I edited the photos. :)

I would love to try out #lightpainting sometime!
 
Interested in learning how to paint with light? Eric Curry's new book is a solid offering:

(To be clear, given some confusion in the comments, this is a photograph. With light painting, you move the light source around during a long exposure, or series of long exposures.)

Excellent place. Best of all, you only have to pay for parking!

While the decor doesn't live up to the extremely high Mellow Mushroom standard, it still is an cool looking place with excellent pizza!

Amazing food but slower service lately. Probably the most popular place in town.

As always, excellent food, but the decor doesn't live up to some of the other Mellow Mushroom's extremely high standards.
