Photography has the power to lighten up our lives, and what a great thing it is to start our days by seeing some beautiful images in the comfort of our seats!
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 624th challenge on Outdoor Photograph in the Holiday! And as you might have guessed by now, some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!
Photo Of The Week – January 9th, 2023
This time POTW goes to @wendyp and her minimal yet very effective photo of winter fun.
I like the crop, composition, textures, and subtle yellow and violet hues that make the ice appear more beautiful.
What Are Our Members Up To?
Pour some coffee or tea and enjoy our favorite Outdoor Holiday Shots!
“The redpolls' Christmas celebration… at minus 18 degrees Celcius. They need feeding two times daily now in this exceptional freeze.”
Imagine walking in the night and stumbling with so many lights; could you resist taking a snap?
Crispy and bright, a classic holiday find!
Great contrast with color, not to mention all the details and rich texture captured by the long exposure of so many lights!
Whoa! This is fantastic!
With proper composition and exposure settings, any scene can become an interesting story for a photographer.
“Every year on Christmas morning, we go to the High Country to spend some time in Nature.”
“Someone made this little decoration for me. It made for a fun little photoshoot on a snowy day.”
Interesting way of decorating palm trees!
What You Shouldn't Be Missing From The Light Stalking Community
Philip shared some personal yet interesting thoughts on having a well-defined purpose in photography; take a read and share your own ideas about this “having something to say” topic as well.
Tersha shared this colorful card:
In Robert‘s words, “even a fence line yet to be fixed can look peaceful at sunset”:
Steve captured a beautiful scene, “when I woke up and saw dense fog–something a bit unusual in the midlands of South Carolina – I knew I should go out to start my new year. And I did”.
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 truly believe in the power of criticism and feedback. Here are some of the most interesting shots shared during the last week:
- To crop or not to crop, that is the question
- Coffee Cup
- My Dentist's Wreath
- Shopping for coconuts
- My Kitchen
- Stick in Water
- Panama City Fixer Upper
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.
