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 – where you'll find finely curated photos from the general chit chat, as well as some creative images from Tersha's latest photography challenge on Blue Hour Landscape! And as usual, we'll be mentioning some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!
Photo Of The Week – May 31st, 2021
This time POTW goes to @wendyp and her unusual blue hour shot.
We had many good candidates but Wendy’s shot was most imaginative and very powerful. I really like the strong contrast, moody sky, and those tree silhouettes in the upper and lower corner of the image.
What Are Our Members Up To?
Pour some coffee and enjoy our favourite shots from Challenge 540th!
What You Shouldn't Be Missing From The Light Stalking Community
Patrick found a good looking happening while playing around his place.
Beth shared a nice and rainy feeling finding.
And Tobie captured a feisty kingfisher having a good looking breakfast.
And if you ever felt like wanting to shoot some frames but for some reason you can, then you might be experiencing “the photographer’s block”, so take a look around this thread started by Rob to think a bit more about this common phenomenon.
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.
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 Green Barn
- Up on the roof
- Out on the kayak
- A Day at the Zoo
- Lady and the Balloon
- Drafting Cyclers, Minimalist silhouette
- Negative Space
- Laminar Flow
- Dual Doors
- The Fly
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.
