The Last Week Captured: The Secret Scenes Our Shutterbugs Share!


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 610th challenge on Lower Perspective! And as you might have guessed by now, some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!

Photo Of The Week – October 3rd, 2022

Words by Jasenka Grujin

This time POTW goes to @julie120 and her incredible action shot.

It is extremely challenging to capture this kind of photo, nail the focus and shutter speed, and at the same time take care of the composition. This is a wonderful example of how powerful action shots can be! Of course, this photo also perfectly suits the last week’s challenge.

Congrats, Julie.

Steampunk! Or not, but these are some gorgeous brass and copper structures for sure, distilling columns to be precise.

Achieving an interesting lower perspective usually requires some crouching!

We know it's earthy-local, but we can help the fact that it actually looks from outer space!

This is what we call a mesmerising shot!

Nothing like a good behind-the-scenes shot!

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

Dave got creative with a Canada goose by doing some interesting colour inversions and other visual tweaks as well:

Daniel captured a vertical yet really cinematic scene earlier this week:

And last but not least, Anne found this colourful patch in her backyard earlier this week and shared it with us:

Let's all give an enlightened welcome to Ted, Jeff and Nick!

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 611th challenge on Shoot at Eye Level!
