This week POTW goes to @frogdaily and her breathtaking image of this drop – it’s a beautiful mix of water and milk.

The image is a perfect example of well-executed macro photography – its composition, colors, and complex form of this drop immediately arrest the viewer’s attention.

Congrats, Belinda.

There is a nostalgic vibe in this bold deep blue metallic macro water shot, it definitely takes you back to the 90s!

This happens to be a fascinating finding in nature, frozen water is always surprisingly beautiful to observe.

Photography is capable of enhancing our world by making us look at it closer and at a slower pace.

What You Shouldn't Be Missing From The Light Stalking Community

After a long wait, Robert was finally able to shoot with his new (xmas present) A Olympus M. Zuiko Digital ED 12-40mm f/2.8 Pro Lens! Here are some shots he shared with us earlier this week:

Graham shared this lovely portrait which you'll find hard to resist falling in love with!

Randall captured an incredible shot of a blue Heron on the flight!

And a cosy squirrel too:

And don't forget saying hi to our newest forum members too!

We'd Love To Hear Your Thoughts

Also, our Feedback Forum received some nice photographs, 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. This is possible thanks to valuable and positive feedback, which is perhaps the best way in which someone can hack the learning curve in photography.

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.

Many of our members have nurtured their own photographic knowledge by giving out elaborate critiques that go way beyond simple emoji based reactions or “nice shot” comments. Here are some of the most interesting shots shared during the last week:

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. We'll be more than pleased to help you out; after all, we all are in love with photography. Also, don't forget to participate in our 523rd challenge on Macro Flowers!
