The Last Week Mosaic: Unmasking The Best Of Our Photo Family!


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 Adjusting Verticals in Architecture! And as usual, we'll be mentioning some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!

This time POTW goes to @rshattil.

I knew we had a winner as soon as I saw this hilarious example of wrong perspective adjustment. I often get mildly wrong results when I use this automatic adjustment in Lightroom, but this is just beautifully wrong.

Congrats, Click.

Beautiful homage to lost architecture! “Processed in post to straighten, level, and make the building transparent against the sky.”

Interesting point of view, and quite a pleasing straightening effort too!

“This building was almost ready to fall over. I really liked it how it looked and had no intention of trying to straighten it out.”

Lovely texture, and quite a sublime finding as well.

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

Rob captured a marvelous looking great blue heron having some breakfast the other day, according to his words, this one stood in the same spot for over an hour and made several catches in this small series of waterfalls.

Randall shared an intimidating portrait of a hawk.

Tobie got close to a Berchell's Coucal. “This bird is in the cuckoo family, laying its eggs in the nests of hosts. It is kind of sad to watch a weaver or wagtail work real hard to feed a babe that is 3 x its size. But it’s one of the wonders of the bird world.”

Let's give a special shout-out to our newest members, Craig and Charles!

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 545th challenge on Balance and Rhythm!
