Photography has the power of brightening 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 the weekly wrap-up from Light Stalking – you'll find finely curated photos from the general chit chat, as well as some creative images from Tersha's latest photography challenge on Urban Street Photography! And as usual, we'll be mentioning some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!
Photo Of The Week – October 11th, 2021

This time POTW goes to @rshattil and his impressionist photo of people walking in the rain.
I like the editing; it perfectly suits the atmosphere. The colors are so soft and watery, and this unusual panoramic crop also works great. There were many good photos in the last challenge, but this one was most poetic and most creative.
What Are Our Members Up To?
Pour some coffee and enjoy our favorite shots from Challenge 559th!

What You Shouldn't Be Missing From The Light Stalking Community
Check out what Kim got from Adobe and kindly shared it with us here.
Daniel shared an image of Flour Mill Ruins in Minneapolis, Minnesota. It is an excellent example of how tonal range should be developed from a raw file.
Philip opened an interesting discussion on portraiture and how it seems that this genre is highly beauty-oriented these days.
Beaky shared a nice set of outdoorsy shots, and this one grabbed our attention the most. Which one do you like most from them all?
And last but not least, Rob asked us about keepers, a very important thing to reflect on, especially in our digital days.
We'd Love To Hear Your Thoughts
Also, our Feedback Forum received some nice photographs 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. This is possible thanks to valuable and positive feedback, which is perhaps the best way in which someone can hack the photography's learning curve.
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. Many of our members have nurtured their own photographic knowledge by giving out elaborate critiques that go way beyond simple emoji-based reactions or “nice shot” comments. Here are some of the most interesting shots shared during the last week:
- Autumn Gifts for Teacher
- Autumn Spirals
- After the Rain
- Very Different
- Cutting Edge
- 21st Century Still-Life
- A Glimpse of the Heavens
- Wildlife Milky Way
- Volunteer Free
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. We'll be more than pleased to help you out; after all, we all are in love with photography.
Also, don't forget to participate in our 560th challenge on Fine Art Photography!
