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 Frame within Frames! And as usual, we'll be mentioning some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!
Photo Of The Week – July 12th, 2021
Photo by Patrick
This time POTW goes to @patrickw.
I picked this photo because it’s a great example of the unusual frame within a frame. We have an irregular open shape more dominant than the subject itself but it still feels very appropriate and visually balanced as a frame.
B&W conversion is also excellent.

What You Shouldn't Be Missing From The Light Stalking Community
Robert shared an interesting capture of a Redtail Hawk that seems to be guarding the sheep.
Dan captured some colorful fireworks, and here is some information about it “20mm @ f11 for 5″ and ISO 100”:
Erik got some odd artifacts on a shot of his, if you know what's going on here, you can help him! Oh, and they are not high-voltage cables.
Let's give a special shout-out to our newest members, Dan and Thomas!
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:
- Rockets Over The Rose Bowl
- Portrait and Oleander
- Old Packard heading for the Centre
- Silhouette of Beer Tents Pano
- Black Cherry Bush
- Black and White waves
- More than 99 bottle of beer on the wall
- Lone Calla Lily
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 547th challenge on Juxtaposition!
