Interesting Curves And Cute Animals – Don’t Miss Our Latest Update


Week after week, we state that “photography has the power of lightening up our daily lives,”; and what a wonderful 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 – where you'll find finely curated photos from the general chit-chat blended with some creative shots from Tersha's 652nd challenge on curves; and, as you might have guessed by now, some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!

For those of you wondering what's the story behind this shot, “This is a nuclear power plant built in 1978 in Zwentendorf, Austria, that was never activated due to the referendum that voted it down”. Photography truly enables us to see places unthought.

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 653rd challenge!
