Words by Kent DuFault

The Guest Judge for the POTW for this week was Jay Ward @jdublu.

Here is what Jay had to say about this stunning landscape photograph by Bruce Gordon.

“I like the way the static dunes convey a sense of motion. The blue hour tones lend a nearly nautical feeling to the shot. Very nice!”

Congratulations to Bruce Gordon @bgordon806 for his win on the POTW.

There are many reflections in this one! Also the lighting setup gives this shot an incredibly detailed aesthetic.

We'd Love To Hear Your Thoughts

Our Feedback Forum received really great 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 who 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 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:

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 and many other members will be more than pleased to help you out; after all, we all are in love with photography. Don't skip participating in the newest challenge published by Tersha on another photography classic, Faceless Portrait. Please remember to join our friendly photography community if you haven't done it already!
