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 Patterns in Architecture! And as usual, we'll be mentioning some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!
Photo Of The Week – June 14th, 2021
Photo by Click
There were many great candidates this week. I decided to award POTW to @rshattil because his shot is crazily intricate – I couldn’t stop looking at it. It looks like a piece of art someone would bring to a festival like Burning Man.
Such hypnotizing patterns!

What You Shouldn't Be Missing From The Light Stalking Community
Tobie shared a tranquil-looking hooded vulture with us the other day. Here's some additional information: “This is one of our scarce vultures. Its narrow beak allows it to eat small pieces of meat left behind by other types of the vulture. It also eats insects and even dung. When translating its name in my home language directly into English, it means ‘Monk Vulture’. One can see why.”
And also a cute looking giraffe:
Patrick captured some heavy-looking clouds, here is our favorite:
David got particularly colorful with his iconic drops!
Beth shared some shots of her annual trip. Here some extra information about this fantastic photograph:
And Rob shared a good looking sunset, because one simply can't have enough of them right?
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:
- Hazy Conditions
- Another landscape
- Flower Sculpture
- Kind of a Landscape
- Still Life: Poppies and Peonies
- Oyster Bar
- Dilapidated Barn — Half Gone
- Smoke no Mirror
- Up on the roof
- Hazy Conditions
- Out on the kayak
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 543rd challenge on Blue Hour Architecture!
