Light And Airy Editing And Street Art – 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!

Remember past week's challenge of capturing air? Well, this week, the challenge escalated and drove through editing such atmospheric behavior. Here's our finely curated selection of these creative editing approaches toward Tersha's 654th challenge on Editing for Light and Airy Photography! Think about diffused light, bounced light, reflectors, luminance, muted colors, presets, filters, framing, white balance, you name it!

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 of critiquing 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 655th challenge!
