Photography has the power of brightening 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 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 Black and White Textures in Nature! And as you've already guessed, we'll be mentioning some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum too!
Photo Of The Week – March 15, 2021
This week POTW goes to @rgatscha and her photo of the desert. I find this image dreamy and surreal because of the excellent color processing. The colors indeed evoke the desert heat and something ancient and nostalgic. This scene feels like an intro from a movie, it reminded of the Japanese masterpiece Woman in the Dunes (1964).
The lighting is also very beautiful and the way shadows and textures interact pulls the viewer in.
Congrats, Rose Marie.

What You Shouldn't Be Missing from The Light Stalking Community
Patrick started taking photos of horses, and shared this moment with us.
Tobie was pretty lucky while capturing this collared barbet which looks like a painting.
Also, he shared this photo of some sable antelopes:
Peter shared a minimal shot with a nice colour palette which clearly reflects some design knowledge, and the lines are perfectly vertical and horizontal with now perceivable fringing or distortion.
Dave captured this odd looking insect trap made by a creepy and severe spider. Also, it reminds of insects in amber.
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:
- First Daffodils
- Slash pit
- Broken tile sign
- The Rock on Lake Superior North Shore
- Cinnamon hummingbird
- The dancer emerges
- Mustard in a Dry Creek
- The Dancer Emerges
- Lots a lines
- A Chair
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 530th challenge on Black and White Lines in Nature!
