Google+ Photos isn’t immediately ready for its prime time, with many “features” missing like Slideshow and Media RSS Feeds which you can easily get from Google Picasa Web previously.

[User ID]/albumid/ [Album ID]?alt=rss
- e.g. http://photos.googleapis.com/data/feed/api/user/
That’s how you find out the Media RSS Feed of your Google+ Photo gallery.
