Photography has the power of brightening up our lives; and what a great thing it is to start our day by checking out some beautiful images in the comfort of our homes! Here is the weekly wrap-up from Light Stalking – you'll find carefully curated photos from the general chit chat, as some creative images from Tersha's latest photography challenge on Macro Water! And as you've already guessed, we'll be mentioning some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum too!

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.

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:
Finally, Dave brought a frozen sun to the table:
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:
- Sunset Glow
- Snells Beach, North Island, New Zealand
- Broken Reflection
- Grandpa and Grandma Grimm with Grit
- Butterfly against the machine
- Weather Event of the Century
- Professional Dog Walker
- Building Materials
- Itinerant Beach Dweller
- Sophisticated Staircase
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!
