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 585th challenge on Animals in Nature! 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!

There were amazing candidates this week and it was nearly impossible to do the justice and pick the winning image.

I decided to award POTW to @londavis because of the amazing color contrast and clean composition that makes the subject perfectly stand out.

The image is such a joy to look at – the combination of warm and cool tones is just gorgeous!

Congrats!

Sometimes, wildlife shots get even better when developed into black and white! Tonal treatment is fundamental for achieving a striking yet aesthetic look.

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.
