The Last Week Revelations: Peeking at the Pearls of Our Peers


Photography has the power to lighten 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 613th challenge on Tonal Range! And as you might have guessed by now, some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!

Words by Jasenka Grujin

This time POTW goes to @michael and his gorgeous b&w landscape.

The tonal range and composition are simply perfect here! I also like the moodiness and this insanely dramatic sky. I’d love to take a walk on that beach at the time the photo was taken.

Congrats, Michael.

What Are Our Members Up To?

Pour some coffee or tea and enjoy our favorite tonal treatment shots!

Delightful composition of quadrants! An ingenious way of telling a story with a single frame, for sure.

Rich tones and those soft details on the stem give a good contrast to the bold drama of the scene.

smooth toned landscape
The tonal range doesn't always have to be about high contrast; smooth tones like these also make a great shot!

We'd Love To Hear Your Thoughts

Also, our Feedback Forum got some nice pictures, and it 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 to critique 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 for 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 images. Don't be shy, critiques are given to photographs and not photographers.

Also, don't forget to participate in our 614th challenge on Black and White Landscape!
