The Last Week Review: Glimpses & Glints from Our Grand Guild


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 595th challenge on Streets at Nights! And as you might have already guessed by now, some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!

Photo Of The Week – June 20th, 2022

This time POTW goes to @patrickw and his very effective night street shot.

I picked this photo because blurriness and b&w here create such an amazing cinematic effect. For me, this looks as if the main character of a movie woke up in the middle of the street at night and these three mysterious figures were the first thing that he saw, while his consciousness was still loading – hence the blurriness.

Great work, Patrick!

“I know this is blurry but it was the best I could do with my ‘not a DSLR'.”

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

Patrick shared a recent collage of shots:

One of this mornings, Dave and Carol met Willow and her buddy on their walk along the lake:

Later on, they found out this feathery crew:

And last but not least, a hungry jumpy spider:

Daniel had some trouble with Lightroom, so take a look and see if you can help him out.

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:

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 596th challenge on Indoor Photography at Night!
