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 – where you'll find finely curated photos from the general chit chat, as some creative images from Tersha's latest photography challenge on Saturate using White Balance! And as you've already guessed, we'll be mentioning some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum too!
Photo Of The Week – April 12th, 2021

This time POTW goes to @patrickw and his otherworldly image of Lough Neagh.
The image feels cinematic and hypnotizing thanks to the perfect selection of colors. The tonal range is also amazing and those highlights in the water and golden rims of the clouds add to the sense of mystery.
What Are Our Members Up To?
Pour some coffee and enjoy our favourite shots from Challenge 533rd!

What You Shouldn't Be Missing From The Light Stalking Community
Tobie shared quite a finding with us, a Verreaux’s Eagle right on the fly!
He also shared one of my favourite birds in the whole world, a Kingfisher!
Leanne had fun with her family in her annual Easter egg hunt, and you can see all the images that are shared with us here, but our favourite is this one. It simply sums up the whole vibe of the activity, and the colours work really nice for the story.
Upon the return of the bees during spring, Dave captured a diligent one!
And speaking of spring, here's a nice shot from Tersha!
We'd Love To Hear Your Thoughts
Also, our Feedback Forum received some nice photographs, and it 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 to critique 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:
- Open Wide
- Flinders St Station, Melbourne
- Tattered Tulip
- Bars in Brilliant Color
- Black and White Nature
- Bundaberg Rum
- Nasty Crop
- Tulip Guts
- Upside Down
- Triptych of Yucca
- Music at the Beach
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 534th challenge on Saturation: Story Telling Through Colours!
