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 580th challenge on DIY Shadow Effects! 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!

This time POTW goes to @rshattil and his clever idea.

The photo is an open invitation to all of us to expand our creativity and try something new and unusual. Except for being rather fun, this image is also well-composed and well-lit.

Congrats, Click!

We have a winner here! And a well-structured example of how vertical compositions should be framed.

Shadows are solid metaphors for pointing out the mystery and the unknown, but in photography, we tend to forget about this. Here, we have a poetic example of how shadowy silhouettes can still be eerie and mysterious through a backlit photograph.

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

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:

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 581st challenge on Lighting for Dark and Moody Photography!
