The Last Week Unearthed: Dive Into Community’s Candid Captures!


Photography has the power of lightening 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 seats!

Here is our weekly wrap-up – you'll find finely curated photos from the general chit-chat blended with some creative shots from Tersha's 600th challenge on Urban Street! And as you might have guessed by now, some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!

This time POTW goes to @patrickw and his terrific street shot.

The combination of leading lines, double exposure, and great b&w conversion made this image truly outstanding. It has that classic b&w street feel that we associate with the masters of street photography such as Henri Cartier-Bresson.

Congrats, Patrick.

Look at the bold colour contrast we got here! Using vibrant tones against muted ones creates a notorious yet elegant colour palette.

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

Only time Dave ever used his Pentax K-50, it was to charge the batteries and make sure it's still working. He tries to do this about every 3 months or so. He dusted it off the other day and found this shot on the memory card:

He also shared this colourful little patch of Zinnias from his own backyard:

Robert embraced the harsh nature of bright highlights in the wild!

And this wild hog in the forest as well:

Rain, rain, go away, come again some other day! 

The Mobile Monday Challenge is open for sharing some shots! And if you want to see more shots, take a look at the Members Picks, a place where our community shares their favourite photographs from our forums every week.

We'd Love To Hear Your Thoughts

Also, our Feedback Forum got some nice pictures 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.

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. 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.
