The Last Week Encore: Unseen Angles from Our Avid Photographers


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 617th challenge on Colour Theory in Photography! And as you might have guessed by now, some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!

Words by Jasenka Grujin

We had many great candidates this week, and since I prefer color to b&w photography, I really enjoyed them all!
POTW goes to @elax and her ravishing night shot. A splash of color looks so vibrant and electric here, surrounded by the darkness. This image would make a killer print!
Congrats, Elin.

By itself, this is an intense storytelling moment. Still, with the aid of composition (rule of thirds and contrast with color), it becomes a true aesthetic experience for the eyes.

The Mobile Monday Challenge is open for sharing some shots! And if you want to see more shots, take a look at the Members Picks, a place where our community shares 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 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 images. Don't be shy; critiques are given to photographs and not photographers.

Also, don't forget to participate in our 618th challenge!
