Photography is so powerful that it can brighten up our lives – what a great way to start our day by checking out beautiful images in the comfort of our homes! Here is your weekly wrap-up from Light Stalking – you'll find carefully curated photos from the general chit chat, as well as some creative photographs from Tersha's latest challenge on unusual! And as you've already guessed by now, we'll be mentioning some worth-seeing shots from the feedback forum too!
Photo Of The Week – October 12th, 2020
Photo by David Chesterfield
Every once in a while, you come across a photograph that the moment you see the image, it smacks you in the eyes.
For me, this is one of those photos.
It is an extraordinary blend of shape, color, and tone.
It is most definitely a POTW shot.
Congratulations to David Chesterfield for knocking me off my chair on a Monday morning!

What You Shouldn't Be Missing from The Light Stalking Community
Tobie shared a set of beautiful photos of a jackal buzzard, which is probably the most common buzzard around his place. This is our favorite one, but you can see them all here.
He also shared with us this amazing shot of a cape sugarbird!
And last but not least, some flamingos too.
Dave shared this photograph of a milkweed seed stuck to a spider web.
Tersha shared a photo of what in her opinion is the last butterfly this season since the weather is getting colder.
David shared a tiny caterpillar eating limes in his garden, and boy, it is small!
And Erik shared with us a nice link on close-up photographer of the year.
Oh, and Rob asked a very intriguing question about our photographic rhythm.
Let's Welcome Our Newest Forum Members!
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 who want to grow fast as photographers. This is possible thanks to valuable and positive feedback, which is perhaps the best way to hack the learning curve in photography.
Here you'll get your work critiqued by plenty of well-intended people, but you'll also have a chance to critique 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:
- Tree Goddess with Attendants
- Pacifico Brewery at Sunrise
- Grand-daugther on a Rhino
- Glass and Apples
- Green Jumping Spider
- A place I found behind some buildings….. Sad!
- Spider on yellow
- Macro: Blue Wood
- Steampunk Lady on Structure
- The Cutting Edge
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 508th challenge on panning!
