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 588th challenge on Skylines in Nature! And of course, we'll introduce some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum too!
Photo Of The Week – May 2nd, 2022
This time POTW goes to @joubie and her gorgeous abstract take on skylines in nature.
We had many great candidates again but this image is simply different because it feels so silky, poetic, and soothing. The color scheme is a feast for the eyes and the motion blur feels just right.
What Are Our Members Up To?
Pour some coffee and enjoy our favourite shots from this horizontally soothing challenge!
What You Shouldn't Be Missing From The Light Stalking Community
Robert captured a pine needle spinning and swaying on this spiderweb for an hour on a peaceful afternoon in the woods:
He also shared more creative shots achieved with his Lensbaby collection, which happens to be a creative push for sure. Here, we see a miniature effect done in-camera thanks to this kit:
Dave got close to some poultry and was able to pull out this crisp portrait:
Andrew got a pair of terns flying across a small wetland billabong. The upper folk is carrying a tiny fish and it would appear that the lower bird is expecting him to drop it.
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:
- Mother Nature Encounters a Cemetery
- Diving Sea Lions
- A live caricature session
- Coyote magico
- Breaking up is hard to do
- Two New Eyes
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 589th challenge on Fundamentals of Exposure!
