The Last Week Gallery: Captivating Clicks Curated by Our Clan


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 614th challenge on Black and White Landscape! And as you might have guessed by now, some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!

Photo Of The Week – October 31st, 2022

Words by Jasenka Grujin

This time POTW goes to Patrick and his gorgeous landscape shot with human silhouettes.

I like the addition of a human element in landscapes like this one. The scene looks totally cinematic as if it’s a still from a classic movie. I also like the square crop, it perfectly fits the scene.

Congrats, @patrickw!

Eerie and abstract, yet welcoming for sure.

peaceful beach with boats
In case you didn't know, landscapes can be seen through the eyes of minimalism! Here, the story is presented in an elegant composition, and the rule of odds (the boats grouped in a cluster of three) adds an extra layer of interest to the scene.

majestic landscape with clouds
“The Boars Tusk at the Killpecker Sand Dunes; it was 130F° this day in the Red Dessert, the heat waves were ever-present, making you feel like you were in the middle of a Van Gogh as it being painted.”

The dreamlike effect is achieved with meticulous post-production.

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 those who 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 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 615th challenge on Black and White Portrait!
