Photography has the power of brightening up our lives; and what a great thing it is to start our days by checking out beautiful images in the comfort of our homes! Here is the weekly wrap-up from Light Stalking – you'll find finely curated photos from the general chit chat and creative images from Tersha's latest photography challenge on Monochrome Still Life! And as you've already guessed, we'll be mentioning some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum too!
Photo Of The Week – March 1, 2021
This week POTW goes to @patography and her snowflake.
She has shot this with an extension tube, and although it is her first attempt it looks absolutely stunning.
The composition and focusing are impeccable but what I like most are those soft tonal transitions in the foreground and background.

What You Shouldn't Be Missing From The Light Stalking Community
Rob shared a beautiful photograph of Northern Harrier (or at least he thinks it is one, and we trust his keen eye, so we will stick with that) with us earlier this week.
He also shared this beautiful photograph of an Oaxacan piece of pottery which is the result of about 5 combined images processed in Photoshop.
Tersha shared a rich-in-bokeh photograph of the first crocus in her garden this year, and it looks dreamy beyond beautiful.
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:
- A Chair
- Mural Art
- Pink Splash
- Young Lady Calligrapher
- Dancing in the street
- Big Knob
- New Native American Art
- Walking in the Light
- Monochrome Branches
- Spotlight Closeup
- I submitted this in the monochrome challenge
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 528th challenge on Monochrome Abstract!
