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 to Tell a Story! 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 15th, 2021

This time POTW goes to @patography.
It was a bit hard to choose the winner, but this image captured something I consider a rare find. It would be really great to have a whole series of images like this one, various examples of nature reclaiming civilization.
What Are Our Members Up To?
Pour some coffee and enjoy our favorite shots from Challenge 564th!

What You Shouldn't Be Missing From The Light Stalking Community
Since Lenny is relocating, Rob Eyers thought someone should carry the torch until he's back. Taken with a Fuji X-T3 and edited in snapseed, “Los Limpiadores de la Playa”.
Spring has sprung, and David brought us some close-up shots! Take a look at them here, unless you are afraid of spiders and other lovely crawlers of course!
Steve was able to capture this fisherman's attention, and in exchange, he also shared this nice photograph of him doing what pleases him the most. Interestingly enough, the fisher reckoned he had no photos of himself doing what he loves, fishing! Hence the importance of connecting with people rather than just stealing moments on the go.
And if you want to see more shots, take a look at the Members Picks! A place where our community is able to share their favorite photographs from our forums every week.
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 City View
- Screening for Diamonds
- Lost in Thought
- The Twilight Zone
- Is Anyone Watching Me?
- Mother Nature Snacking on an Old Barn
- Fish Food Dreams
- Kylie's Happy Place
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 565th challenge on The Rule of Thirds and Leading Lines!
