Photography has the power to lighten up our daily lives, and what a wonderful way of kick-starting our routines by diving into some beautiful images in the comfort of our seats!
Here is our weekly wrap-up – where you'll find finely curated photos from the general chit-chat blended with some creative shots from Tersha's 628th challenge on Use Reflected Light Creatively! And as you might have guessed by now, some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!

There was an attempt to get more reflection in the metal.

Here, you'll get your work critiqued by plenty of well-intended people, but you'll also have the chance to critique your peers. We genuinely believe in the power of criticism and feedback. Here are some of the most exciting shots shared during the last week:
