Here is your weekly wrap-up from Light Stalking – you'll find some nicely curated stuff from the general chit chat as well as some amazing shots from Tersha's latest challenge on Silhouettes! And as you've already guessed by now, we'll be mentioning some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!
Photo Of The Week – June 22nd, 2020
Photo by Graham Hart
There were many interesting pictures uploaded onto two different threads this week. The first was Photography Challenge #493 High Key and the second was Photography Challenge #492 Silhouettes.
However, I kept coming back to this beautiful picture by Graham.
The high key effect works really well and the image tells a great story.
I had a runnerup in the high key challenge and that was an image by Patrick. In his photo, he makes excellent use of a dynamic angle and implied motion. It’s clever and quite artistic.
I’ll post a link below.

What You Shouldn't Be Missing From The Light Stalking Community
Slavuta is having issues with a Tamron 28-300mm VC PZD lens for Canon, check out this tread to offer help.
Patrick shared this peaceful shot of a heron! Not that peaceful for the fish though.
And he also shared this unusual scene with us!
Graham posted this beautiful landscape and a lot of our fellow Light Stalkers gave him some nice feedback as well.
Dave shared a couple of solitary bees.
And last but not least, Tobie shared a very groovy looking butterfly with us!
We'd Love To Hear Your Thoughts
Our Feedback Forum received some nice photographs and it is clear that many 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 to hack the learning curve.
Here you'll get your work critiqued by plenty of well-intended people, but you'll also have a chance to critique 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:
- Close-up Assignment
- Landscape Too busy?
- Downtown Traffic
- Newspapers kiosk
- Old and New
- Biting Jumping Spider
- Castle Hill
- Puss in Boot
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 will be delighted to see some of your own images too. Don't be shy, critiques are given to photographs and not photographers.
We and many other members will be more than pleased to help you out; after all, we all are in love with photography. Feel free to participate in the newest challenge published by Tersha on another photography classic High-Key! Of course, please remember to join our friendly photography community if you haven't done it already.
Thanks so much Federico.
