Photo Of The Week March 28th, 2022

Words by Jasenka Grujin

We had many great candidates last week, belonging to various genres – still life, street photography, portraiture.

POTW goes to @tersha and her stunning and moody still life shot.

I haven’t seen such a gorgeous still life for a long time – the colors and the composition have immediately grabbed my attention. The image resembles fine art paintings and the bug on the wall is a playful touch that makes the image complete in its beauty.

If the moody vibe won't make you think of the night, perhaps the somnolent stare might do the trick.

The trick is in the texture, which unveils itself amidst the bright background thanks to the beauty of shadows.

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.
