The Last Week Reverie: Reliving Radiant Renditions & Revels!


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 – you'll find finely curated photos from the general chit-chat blended with some creative shots from Tersha's 605th challenge on Reflection on Glass! And as you might have guessed by now, some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!

This time POTW goes to @wendyp and her gorgeous shot of glass in front of the flames.

I like everything about this image – composition, colors, and that cozy vibe – the condensation on the glass just looks so crisp and inviting. This was the boldest image posted last week and I was pretty sure from the very beginning that it will be the best one.

Congrats, Wendy.

What Are Our Members Up To?

Achieving cinematic imagery in 1:1 format is a challenge by itself, and this image tells a story in an effective way.

When done right, sub-framing is a powerful compositional strategy!

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

Robert shared the remnants of some towering Metasequoia trees from a jungle-like swamp; today, these trees still exist as petrified wood.

And some gorgeous spotlights:

Dave shared this little chickadee nicely posing on a solar yard light.

Rose Marie framed this fun structure in a pretty dynamic way:

Last but not least, let's all give a warm welcome to Dale L and Julie 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:

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 606th challenge on Reflections on Mirror!
