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 601st challenge on Geometry in Nature! And as you might have guessed by now, some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!
Photo Of The Week – August 1, 2022
This week we had so many great candidates that it was really challenging to award the POTW.
I picked Charmaine because her shot of a zebra has such a creative composition and it looks stunning in b&w. The combination of negative space and geometry creates a striking effect here!

What You Shouldn't be Missing From The Light Stalking Community
Dave shared these anemones which look like something brought in from outer space. About them, he told us that it closes up at low tide (well, actually it rolls up). The green oval with the pieces of shell stuck to it is the column. When the water is deeper the column unrolls and reveals more of its stinging tentacles. A predator that eats crabs, molluscs, fish etc; whatever is unlucky enough to come within reach.
And some seagulls hanging out at the top of a basalt cliff on the Oregon coast:
And before anything else, let's all give a warm welcome to Wendy T!
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:
- Interesting Stump
- Bejewelled Lantana
- Septuagenarian Marathoner
- Heart of the RainForest
- Girl in a doorway silhouette
- Backyard Frog
- Alignment of the planets 2022
- Evening at the Beach
- Triptych – Noosa Everglades
- Rush Hour Crush
The Shark Tank is a great place to learn and 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.
Also, don't forget to participate in our 602nd challenge on Geometry in Architecture!
