I’m totally mesmerized by this powerful shot – the colors and textures are hypnotizing, especially when seen at full size. The image looks like abstract art I’d want to hang in my room.
Congrats, Robert.

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 truly believe in the power of criticism and feedback. Here are some of the most interesting shots shared during the last week:

The Shark Tank is a great place to learn and discuss, so please read the instructions in order to get 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 650th challenge!
