Photography has the power of brightening up our lives; and what a great thing it is to start our days by watching 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 Wide Angle Landscape! And as you've already guessed, we'll be mentioning some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum too.
Photo Of The Week – May 10th, 2021

It was really hard to decide on POTW this week – there were many great candidates!
I picked @patrickw and his majestic wide-angle landscape because of the breathtaking sky and really effective editing. Those leaden tones really suit the atmosphere.

What You Shouldn't Be Missing From The Light Stalking Community
We got some nice contributions by Patrick this week, but we want to congratulate him on this particular photo:
David captured a fascinating specimen of jumping spider with his macro set-up the other day:
Anne captured a nice juxtaposition that made us think that well perhaps never return to walking without some sort of protection after 2020.
And let's give a special shout out to Vicki, our newest member aboard!
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:
- Negative Space
- Laminar Flow
- Dual Doors
- The Fly
- Blacksmith in Action
- Lilly Peddler
- High Jumper
- Yellow and Red
- Geometry and Colors
- Light Hole
- Open Wide
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 538th challenge on Landscape with a Telephoto!
Wow Frederico your pictures look very nice. I want to start with photograpy too but I dont know which camera and settings are good.
Do you think an iPhone is okay or should I buy an expensive camera for high quality photos?
