Photography has the power of lightening up our lives; and what a great thing it is to start our days by checking out some beautiful images in the comfort of our homes!
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 598th challenge on Urban Wildlife! And as you might have guessed by now, some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!
Photo Of The Week – July 11th, 2022
This time POTW goes to Frogdaily.
This image is such a perfect example of wildlife in the city. The focal length is wide enough to give us enough context, and the composition along with the colors makes the subject stand out in a beautiful way.
What Are Our Members Up To?
Pour some coffee and enjoy our favourite shots from this starry and moody challenge!

This was Ken's first time shooting fireworks with the simple advice from Nikon’s website: Manual focus, ISO 200, f/10 and Bulb mode for the shutter using a remote. What he learned was the length of time holding the shutter open, usually around 1.6 to 3 seconds.
David started the mobile Monday challenge with this creative finding from the streets:
Dahlia shot this with her iPhone and later it was tweaked by using VSCO and Pixelmator:
And Tersha got pretty creative in her garden with this watering can:
We'd Love To Hear Your Thoughts
Also, our Feedback Forum got some nice pictures and 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:
- Heart of the Rain Forest
- Girl in a doorway silhouette
- Backyard Frog
- Alignment of the planets 2022
- Evening at the Beach
- Triptych – Noosa Everglades
- Rush Hour Crush
- 8 brothers and sisters and no one looking at the camera
- Sunset at an old fishing pier
The Shark Tank is a great place to learn and to 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.
