Photography has the power of lightening up our lives; and what a great thing it is to start our days by seeing 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 611th challenge on Shoot at Eye Level! And as you might have guessed by now, some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!

Photo Of The Week – October 10th, 2022

cow in black and white

Words by Jasenka Grujin

This week POTW goes to @patography and her terrific shot of a cow.

Black and white treatment suits the scene perfectly! The look in the cow’s eyes combined with this type of post-processing and simple dark background makes the image appear classic and timeless. I also like the human element here, it creates a powerful juxtaposition and adds to the emotional content of the shot.

Congrats, Pat.

Amazing shot! It almost looks like something easy to do. Telephoto lenses are great for capturing dynamic moments in a precise way.

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 612th challenge on Looking Up!
