The Last Week Reveal: Community Treasures You’ve Overlooked


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 Balance and Rhythm! And as usual, we'll be mentioning some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!

Photo Of The Week – July 5th, 2021

Words by Jasenka Grujin

This time POTW goes to @timothy-a and his playful shot of kids and colorful chairs.

The image is a wonderful example of a balanced composition, unusual perspective, geometry,  and vivid colors working together. On top of that, it exudes a cheerful mood.

Congrats, Timothy.

What Are Our Members Up To?

This has to be one of the most pleasing examples of organic lines that we've seen in a while!

This is a really satisfactory visual!

A perfect balance among tones and shapes, but the tiny horses make it all come tightly together.

Not your regular disposable cutlery.

Such a gentle detail, “Ebony and Ivory. An image I’ve already shared in my Kruger thread but I thought it fits nicely in this challenge”.

It is in balance, and it surely takes you away!

Great in-balance perspective of the “40 Mile Lighthouse, Lake Huron”.

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

Dahlia shared a very dynamic example of seeing water and clouds combined together!

And Jasenka gave us a calmer view of the exact same combination of elements.

Tersha saved a cute-looking mouse that was stuck in a bucket. But before the safe release, a nice photo had to be taken.

And Elin shared a soft passenger in the water!

Let's give a special shout-out to our newest members, Theresa, Kay, and Rebecca!

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 546th challenge on Frame within Frames!
