The Last Week Odyssey: Discover the Depth of Our Digital Diary!


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 – you'll find finely curated photos from the general chit chat, as some creative images from Tersha's latest photography challenge on Create Emotion with Saturation! And as you've already guessed, we'll be mentioning some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum too!

Photo Of The Week – April 26th, 2021

Photo by Rose Marie

Words by Jasenka Grujin

This time POTW goes to @rgatscha and her colorful shot of a clothesline in India.

The image looks joyful, fresh and tropical – it made me smile immediately and it made me miss traveling to faraway places even more than usual!

The chaotic composition and warm pink tones surrounded by lush green look so uplifting that this image is the perfect example of how colors and powerful color combinations can affect our mood instantly.

Congrats, Rose Marie.

What Are Our Members Up To?

Certainly, this shot quite resembles the prime color palette in a slight way, and also the composition is brilliant. Composing within a 1:1 ratio is always a challenge, and here we have a good example of how's done right!

Wild portrait of a nature's finest predator!

What a beautiful finding and the processing decisions make it quite poetic.

Stunning vibrant colors! And despite being a hand-held shot, it is sufficiently sharp.

There's such a nice vibe in this shot that it feels somewhat surreal, great contrast of hot and cold, and also of cool and warm tones!

Feel the raw power of nature!

What a soft, delicate and gentle fuzzy flower we have here.

It's amazing to see how a small portion of the frame has so much power thanks to a vibrant color contrasting with negative space.

Brilliant composition and exposure in this soothing landscape.

What You Shouldn't Be Missing From The Light Stalking Community

Daniel captured a colourful bird with his new camera and lens, a Nikon D5300 with a Tamron 70-300 attached to it:

Ninan came up with a question regarding lenses, and while doing it, he shared some lovely shots as well:

Charmaine shared us some lion shots in black and white, and this is our favourite by far!

We'd Love To Hear Your Thoughts

Also, our Feedback Forum received some nice photographs 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. 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 of critiquing 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:

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 536th challenge on Selective Colour Saturation!
