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 latest challenge on Abstract Architecture! And of course, we'll introduce some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum too!
And why not mention it, this particular challenge was especially crowded, and it was a beautiful joy picking the featured shots!
Photo Of The Week – January 24th, 2022

This time POTW goes to Simon and his well-crafted shot of abstract architecture.
Besides showcasing the unusual design of this building, Simon has framed this photograph really well. Nothing to add and nothing to remove! The use of reflection in the water makes the entire scene even more impactful.
What Are Our Members Up To?
Pour some coffee and enjoy our favorite shots from Challenge 574th!

What You Shouldn't Be Missing From The Light Stalking Community
Jim was privileged to see, at least in captivity, a Sun Bear. He also shared with us that New Zealand has 2 species of bears, and this is one of those:
Dave dusted off his camera and snapped a 300mm, after some patience, he got this vibrant (and judgemental looking) Red-breasted Sapsucker:
And speaking of good-looking birds, Tersha stumbled into this round fella!
Robert challenged our minds with this shot, can you get it?
He also shared this old hand-painted advertisement:
Last but not least, Marty raised the question about useful tools for identifying nature photos, swing by to learn more about what other Light Stalkers have to say!
And if you want to see more shots, take a look at the Members Picks! A place where our community is able to share their favorite photographs from our forums every week.
Also, make sure to know Charmaine better!
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:
- Some Seals on Some Rocks in the Water
- A Selfie
- Squirrel Alert
- Falling Water
- Fading Glory
- White Camellia
- Mushroom on Log
- Hand Held Macros
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.
Also, don't forget to participate in our 575th challenge on Abstract Objects at Home!
