Week 18 Visions: Delving Into Our Community’s Photographic Diary


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

Words by Jasenka Grujin

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.

Congrats, Patrick.

Pour some coffee and enjoy our favourite shots from Challenge 537th!

Behold county Donegal's beauty thanks to the wise composition!

Almost abstract, a powerful shot of a lighting striking amidst the storm. Great colors and powerful composition.

Photo by Tersha

Shot with Canon's EF-S10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM massive wide-angle lens but with an infrared twist, which makes it dreamy and unique!

What a beautiful invitation to visit the east coast we have here! Tranquil and rocky.

And speaking of invitations, what about a nice getaway into this soothing place!

Already a splendid venue, but those sun beam lines give it an extra something that makes this shot quite unique.

An impressive look at the Bighorn Mountains in Buffalo Wyoming. This was shot with a Voigtländer Nokton 10.5 mm/1:0.95 and is a dream come true without a doubt.

Simply amazing, there's nothing else to add to such a wonderful landscape.

What a blast of composition this is! One can definitely feel the heat, even through the screen.

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:

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?
