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 606th challenge on Reflections on Mirror! And as you might have guessed by now, some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!

Photo Of The Week – September 5th, 2022

Photo by Tersha

Words by Jasenka Grujin

This time POTW goes to @tersha and her simple yet elegant mirror shot.

I like the abstract nature of this shot and the fact that there’s something very calming about it due to its simplicity and pleasant color scheme.

Congrats, Tersha.

Marbles are already beautiful by themselves, but exploring them through photography takes the aesthetic experience to a whole new level.

This is an interesting metaphor…

This interesting artefact needs some further explanation, so here it goes: this is a “ferromagnetic fluid on a mirror with a rare-earth magnet below”.

The great thing about mirrors is that they result from their inherent mirroring effect like the one above.

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

Recently, Robert‘s father-in-law passed away and in his possessions, they found some wonderful photographs from around the 1940's post-depression era. After his post, some of us reflected on the nature of archives in the digital age. Join the conversation here and share your thoughts!

Andrew had one of the most meaningful experiences in photography and printing!

This photo is a stitch of approx 10 images taken on a very cold morning at an altitude of approx 5500m (18000ft) pre-sunrise. There are no doubt many technical flaws in the image given my newbie status in the photographer ranks but despite that, printing the photo turned out to be a fantastic (if expensive) experience. I stare at the printed and framed image now and love the memories it helps me recover on a daily basis.  Printed on canvas at 2m x 0.7m.  FujiFilm X-T4,  47mm f8 1/60.

Patrick raised a question about photography skills. Basically, he's asking us to share which are our top three skills; so feel free to participate under this thread.

And Rob shared a pretty useful tip for children's photography here in this thread

Oh, let's all give a warm welcome to Carlton H!

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 607th challenge on Reflections on Water!
