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 seats!
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 590th challenge on Creative Exposure by Changing Aperture! And of course, we'll introduce some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum too!
Photo Of The Week – May 16th, 2022
Photo by Aurimas
This week POTW goes to @aurikami.
There were many conventionally beautiful shots last week but this one stood out because of the unusual composition and skillful way of using darkness to emphasize the subject. I also like the colors here, they feel cold and metallic, in line with the theme.
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 shared the following photo of the famously looking Amanita muscaria, also called fly agaric. This is a re-worked image that was darkened a bit with a more blurred background to produce a bit of a mystic feeling. Genius indeed!
Also some more pollen cones:
Daniel shared this image of a bright sunset on Lake Harriet, Minneapolis.
Inspired by Robert Apple, Tersha shared this flying dandelion seed head:

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:
- Desayuno, Breakfast
- Another Door
- Edits of monochromes
- Mother Nature Encounters a Cemetery
- Diving Sea Lions
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.
Also, don't forget to participate in our 591st challenge on Creative Exposure by Changing Exposure!
