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 586th challenge on Flora on Natural Habitat! And of course, we'll introduce some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum too!
Photo Of The Week – April 18th, 2022
Photo by Kristi
Again many splendid candidates this week so I had to be really strict!
POTW goes to Kristi because of the unusual perspective and very beautiful color scheme.
I also love how there are no distractions at all – only this beautiful flower and soft background that’s soothing to look at!
What Are Our Members Up To?
Pour some coffee and enjoy our favorite shots from this wild challenge!

What You Shouldn't be Missing From The Light Stalking Community
Dave had a wonderful adventure in the forest this past week, first, he stumbled into this eerie-looking monster-like finding (a miniature world of fungus, lichen, and other stuff to be precise):
And then with this praying mantis egg case:
Robert said goodbye to Belle, she left with her new owners this week, and he managed to get a funny and cute portrait of her:
Also, he fell in love with his new Lensbaby Control Freak:
Charmaine downloaded the free trial of DxO PureRaw just to try out the DxO Deep Prime and She's very impressed with the outcome:
Oh. and Daniel asked for some help on black backgrounds in nature, so swing around if you can help him to achieve this particular look:
If you want to see more shots, take a look at the Members Picks! A place where our community is able to share their favorite photographs from our forums every week.
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:
- Þingvellir National Park
- Mathematical Mini World
- Greg’s version of Cherry Blossoms
- Dots Portrait
- Dark & Moody Cherry Blossoms
- Color vs. B&W Tulip
- Wildlife portraits
- Cactus Door
- Magnolia Spring
- Editing Out Messy Distractions
- Peregrine Falcon
- Tulip Composition
The Shark Tank is a great place to learn and 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.
Also, don't forget to participate in our 587th challenge on Bodies of Water in Nature!
