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 – where you'll find finely curated photos from the general chit chat blended with some creative shots from Tersha's 584th challenge on Editing for Dark and Moody Photography! 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 – April 4th, 2022
This week POTW goes to @martye and her beautiful b&w tulips.
Marty said that we must be tired from her tulip shots but it’s the exact opposite, at least for me. Her edits are getting better and better, and this one is such a great example of a successful b&w conversion. The image looks better than the original color version and the tonal range is simply amazing, along with the composition.
Gorgeous fine art still life!
