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 608th challenge on Creative Reflection Effects! And as you might have guessed by now, some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!

Photo Of The Week – September 19th, 2022

Words by Jasenka Grujin

This week we also had many creative candidates but Michael’s photo was so outstanding that it immediately caught my attention.

I usually like moderation in editing but in this specific case, all the saturated colors and high contrast really suit the atmosphere. This looks exactly like a screenshot of someone’s dream!

Congrats, @michael.

What Are Our Members Up To?

Pour some coffee or tea and enjoy our favourite shots from this creative challenge on reflections!

The striking contrast of colours takes this clean scene to a whole different level, not to mention the reflection as well. Genius!

A rather creative approach towards reflections indeed.

Interesting colours! Our world is all covered with hovering light reflections passing through our eyes, pay attention and grab some.

Cityscapes are great, but they do get better with some water in the foreground like in this shot!

Lovely symmetry!

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

Dave gave us another look at milkweed seeds, and they look fluffy and great! Perfect shot for a phone's wallpaper.

Patrick took this self-portrait last week on his way out the gate for some early morning shots. Funny as well, when he went back to his place, he found himself locked. The story goes like this, he never told anyone that he was heading out, the door was left unlocked and someone noticed and locked it. After getting back from his hike it started to rain and he stood outside the house for about an hour.

Robert gave us this surreal glimpse from the moon!

And Tersha shared this modern pastoral shot:

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 609th challenge on Looking Down!
