Photography has the power of lightening 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 our weekly wrap-up – you'll find finely curated photos from the general chit chat blended with some creative shots from Tersha's latest challenge on Photograph an Environment! And of course, we'll introduce some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!
And why not mention it, this particular challenge was especially crowded, and it was a beautiful joy picking the featured shots!
Photo Of The Week – November 8th, 2021
Photo by Davidc
This time POTW goes to @davidc and his shot of rail yard.
The image is a great example of how something can turn out magical if the photographer is in the right place at the right time. The lighting, colors, dust, sky, and location itself blend together pretty seamlessly and create this grunge atmosphere and almost poetic beauty despite the industrial environment.
Truly powerful and post-processing is also on point!
What Are Our Members Up To?
Pour some coffee and enjoy our favorite shots from Challenge 563rd!

What You Shouldn't Be Missing From The Light Stalking Community
Andrew saw something that got his attention the other day, it is a subtle encounter with death, but in a very poetic way. In his words, these flowers had fallen into the pond. And he thought they’d make a nice subject; which they are indeed. This is an invitation to always keep our eyes open and be surprised by whatever our surroundings are willing to offer.
Marty asked us about sharing the photographs that recently blew our minds. If you find this to be an interesting question, join the discussion here!
She also asked us about watermarking photographs, so if you have any suggestions for her, swing by this entry and give some light!
And Rob also asked something very interesting about the reasons why we do what we do with our cameras. And if you had never reflected on that, then this is a good moment for doing it!
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:
- Is Anyone Watching Me?
- Mother Nature Snacking on an Old Barn
- Fish Food Dreams
- Kylie's Happy Place
- Silver King of the Koi Pond
- Sleeping Duck
- On the Edge
- Chrysanthemum — Monochrome
- Butterfly Koi action shot
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.
Also, don't forget to participate in our 564th challenge on Photograph an Environment to Tell a Story!
