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 579th challenge on DIY Soft Focus Lens Effect! 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 – February 28th, 2022
This time POTW goes to @martye and her gorgeous shot of a bud.
