Action Shots And Peaceful Landscapes – Check Out Our Latest Update


Week after week, we state that “photography has the power of lightening up our daily lives,”; and what an excellent way of kick-starting our frantic routines by diving into some beautiful images in the comfort of our seats!

Here is our weekly wrap-up – you'll find finely curated photos from the general chit-chat blended with some creative shots from Tersha's 632nd challenge on Freeze People Moving in a Busy Environment! And as you might have guessed by now, some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!

The Mobile Monday Challenge is open for sharing some shots! And if you want to see more shots, take a look at the Members Picks, a place where our community shares their favorite photographs from our forums every week.

We'd Love To Hear Your Thoughts

Also, our Feedback Forum got some nice pictures, and it is clear that some of you have started building a solid photography style. This is the right place for all those people that want to grow fast as photographers.

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:

The Shark Tank is a great place to learn and discuss, so please read the instructions for a better critique experience. Share your comments, opinions, and doubts on any or all of the images above. We also will be delighted to see some of your own images. Don't be shy; critiques are given to photographs and not photographers.

Also, don't forget to participate in our 633rd challenge on Photograph a Minimalist Landscape!
