Week 31 Panorama: A Fresh Glimpse Into Our Shutterbug Society!


Photography has the power of lightening up our lives; and what a great thing it is to start our days by seeing 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 602nd challenge on Geometry in Nature! 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 gorgeous architectural shot.

I like everything about this image – lighting, composition, clean-cut framing, perfect b&w conversion.

Overall, it’s such an elegant shot.

Congrats, Patrick.

What Are Our Members Up To?

This shot was taken in downtown Eugene Oregon a couple of years ago, and it looks as vibrant as if it was taken yesterday!

The geometry in this photograph is tricky but splendid for sure. And the composition enhances the storytelling nature of the scene by adding movement toward the future.

“Morning scene from the Diocletian Palace, Split”. This is a great example of how interesting sub-framing can be for enhancing a quotidian moment on the streets in an aesthetic yet candid way.

There's a lot of stuff going on in this wonderful shot. The outstanding juxtaposition between the modernity of the lights and the antique quality of the architecture. And the best part, the statue on the left bottom corner makes the whole scene become alive.

Getting straight lines in architecture shots like this is quite a challenge for sure. Kudos for an splendid job at achieving such compositional perfection!

Colourful Seaside Geometry.

There's something groovy about the colours on the decaying and rusted textures of this door. Love it!

Very gritty and lo-fi!

The massive structure of the building gets properly scaled thanks to the human elements at the bottom of the frame, genius compositional technique!

“A nod to Patrick with windows from Budapest.” And quite a nice cyberpunk vibe!

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

Andrew thought we might find this landscape from the Northern Territory – Australia taken in the golden hour before sunrise to be a bit interesting. It is a mostly open field of giant termite mounds, sometimes referred to as magnetic termite mounds because they are all oriented north-south.

Dave shared an occasional American Goldfinch, the only birds they have seen in the yard lately:

Also they planted some vibrant Gladiolus:

And a lovely wasp getting a drink from the bird bath:

Before anything else, let's all give a warm welcome to Nancy J and Dale L!

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.

Also, don't forget to participate in our 603rd challenge!
