Photography has the power of brightening up our lives; and what a great thing it is to start our day by checking out some beautiful images in the comfort of our home! Here is the weekly wrap-up from Light Stalking – you'll find carefully curated photos from the general chit chat and creative images from Tersha's latest photography challenge on Well-Edited! And as you've already guessed by now, we'll be mentioning some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well.
Photo Of The Week – November 23rd, 2020
I think it was only a matter of time with his recent macro work that @dchester1001 was going to snag another POTW. This one was a recent standout for me (and apparently @patrickw who surfaced it in the Member’s Picks).
If you have ever tried to shoot one of these guys, you will know how frustrating it can be. If you manage to get the exposure right, you then get to deal with focus problems due to a minuscule depth of field (not sure if this one is focus stacked?).
Then if you nail the focus, you have to deal with a grumpy subject who often just won’t hold still for a shot, turns around, jumps to another leaf etc etc.
In short, these shots are tough. But David really nailed this one. Well done.

What You Shouldn't Be Missing from The Light Stalking Community
Patrick stumbled into a pretty messed scene, which with proper lighting and framing, turned out to be a fantastic piece of visual work. It reminded him of war, what do you folks think of it?
A bit late but still great, Peter shared this Halloween inspired photograph. Spooky enough huh?
He also shared this effective minimalist image:
And don't forget welcoming our freshest forum members too! We've had a nice and steady flow of new Light Stalkers, and no spammers.
We'd Love To Hear Your Thoughts
Our Feedback Forum received some nice photographs, and is clear that some of you have started building a solid photography style. This is the right place for all those people who want to grow fast as photographers. This is possible thanks to valuable and positive feedback, which is perhaps the best way in which someone can hack the photography's learning curve.
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.
Many of our members have nurtured their own photographic knowledge by giving out elaborate critiques that go way beyond simple emoji based reactions or “nice shot” comments. Here are some of the most interesting shots shared during the last week:
- Black and White Stream

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.
