The Last Week Odyssey: Luminous Moments Our Tribe Shared


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 homes!

Here is our weekly wrap-up – where you'll find finely curated photos from the general chit-chat blended with some creative shots from Tersha's 604th challenge on Geometry in Shadows! And as you might have guessed by now, some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!

Photo Of The Week – August 22nd, 2022

Words by Jasenka Grujin

This time POTW goes to @patography and her shot that looks pretty cool thanks to the sharpness and great composition.

Usually, the photographs of shadows have some softness in the shadow area but in this case, the shadow looks very crisp, which makes it clear that it is the main subject in this image.

Congrats, Pat.

What Are Our Members Up To?

Pour some coffee and enjoy our favourite shots from this starry and moody challenge!

This image focuses on the shadow from a hurricane lamp that was inside an old water-powered grist mill. The round shadow and concentric light rings playing on the wood ceiling are superb and what grabbed the photographer's attention on the scene.

“Tiptoeing down the steps”, and a gorgeous-looking bold shadow too!

Despite the direct approach towards this fence and its shadow, there's something eerie and even abstract in the overall projection spotted on the ground.

Simply elegant, “spiral shadow…”

Elongated shadows are a fascinating optical phenomenon for sure, and they sort of whisper a subtle notion of time along the way!

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

Patrick is having the time of his life thanks to the freedom the bike has given him! Click here to see some further shots accompanying his ride a couple of days ago.

Robert gave us Alkaid, Mizar,  Alioth, Megrez, Phecda, Dubhe, and Merak. Which translates into The Butcher’s Cleaver, The Plough, The Big Dipper and more!

Dave stumbled into this lovely deer in his yard the other day:

And he also shared this Crab Spider on top of a Zinnia:

Tersha came across this black beetle when she went out, she reckoned it was quite large and had a beautiful metallic blue-black texture.

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 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 605th challenge on Reflection on Glass!
