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 635th challenge!
