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 Rule of Space! And as usual, we'll be mentioning some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!
Photo Of The Week – July 26th, 2021
Photo by Beth
There were many great photos in the last week’s challenge, but I simply had to pick Beth’s image again.
I also like the clever caption – negative space. and actual space.
This is such a superb photo and I really admire how perfect the exposure is – the sky and the car are both well-exposed and razor-sharp. On top of that, the excellent use of negative space makes the scene even bolder.
This type of shot requires solid technical knowledge, dedication, and good post-processing skills. Personally, I was always too lazy to do something like this even though I have enough free time and shooting/editing skills, which makes me cherish such images even more.

What You Shouldn't Be Missing From The Light Stalking Community
Beth captured an elegant Heron standing on a branch. The colors, the tones, and the light are now a beautiful classic in her shots!
Also, she had some fun with this little fella:
Honestly, we think David has surpassed himself with this one:
And the plot thickens on Erik‘s mysterious black lines.
Oh, and Rob raised a very interesting question that made us all think for a moment. Check it out here and participate if you like!
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:
- Some Minimalism
- Female Cardinal in BackYard
- Colourful drummer at Diwali
- Help me Learn
- Portrait and Oleander
- Rockets Over The Rose Bowl
- Portrait and Oleander
- Old Packard heading for the Centre
- Silhouette of Beer Tents Pano
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 549th challenge on Photographing using Tracking Technique!
