The Last Week Portal: Hidden Hues & Tales From Our Talents!


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 – you'll find finely curated photos from the general chit chat, as well as some creative images from Tersha's latest photography challenge on Minimal Architecture! And as usual, we'll be mentioning some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!

Photo Of The Week – June 7th, 2021

This time POTW goes to @timothy-a and his superb shot of minimalist architecture.

Everything is great about this image – its composition, b&w conversion, lighting, those semitransparent clouds surrounding clean-cut edges of the building.

Congrats, Timothy.

What Are Our Members Up To?

Pour some coffee and enjoy our favourite shots from Challenge 541st!

Simple and elegant, nothing else to add and definitely nothing else to crop out from it.

Such a flat and clean perspective might have been a challenge!

“These are a grouping of buildings in the area South of Market St in San Francisco. I’m calling it ‘Looking Up'.”

Not your regular Sydney opera house shot.

Makes you wonder about outer space.

It is only about 70 -80 years since we moved out of houses like this.

“We live close to a couple mill towns that tanned leather and some were spinning and weaving mills. It was a very hard life. The architecture is quite different. I am not sure of the significance of the star other than it is at the end of a building brace.”

Because minimal doesn't mean only clean contemporary polished structures.

Minimal architecture for sure!

What You Shouldn't Be Missing From The Light Stalking Community

Randall made quite a catch with his camera the other day, here we have an extremely good-looking photo of an egret hunting for dinner.

Tobie shared something unique, and honestly, it is quite hard to appreciate all the beauty of this shot here, so please take a bigger look at it.

Patrick shared a wonky donkey!

Beth doesn't usually take black & white photos, but the colors in this one were distracting according to her, so she decided to transform it.

Charmaine just came back from spending nearly 3 weeks in Kruger National Park, and will be slowly sharing stuff with us, here is one of the images she took.

David was visited by this lovely peacock jumping spider.

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 photography's 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 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 542nd challenge on Patterns in Architecture!
