The Last Week Impressions: Lasting Legacies from Our Lens Lovers


Photography has the power of lightening up our lives; and what a great thing it is to start our days by enjoying 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 Contrast with Negative Space and Colour! 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 29th, 2021

Photo by Elin

Words by Jasenka Grujin

This week POTW goes to Elin and her elegant landscape shot.

The contrast between the sky and the mountain is really strong here and also the texture of the mountain looks so prominent because of the pinkish softness of the sky.

Even though the negative space isn’t dominant here, it divides the frame diagonally and it looks very pleasing to the eye.

Congrats, @elax.

Clever usage of perspective! The texture given to the shot enhances the goth/medieval aesthetic.

High-key, negative space, and abstraction! And all-in-one shot and the title makes it perfect, “looking for dinner”.

Fierce shot, and a bold contrast as well. Fantastic mystery captured in a single frame.

As noted by Holly, Wendy must have stayed very still in order to capture this shot.

Please take a moment to appreciate the magnificent burst of color captured in this shot, the overall dynamism is insane, and the background makes it even stronger for sure.

Simple yet a strong composition indeed. Organic and artificial lines combined in an odd-group arrangement blended with diagonal shadows resulting in a good-looking color-contrast assembly.

This is quite a moody shot!

Intriguing finding, don't you think?

“Lioness in hunting mode”, so bad news for the prey on the back…

What You Shouldn't Be Missing From The Light Stalking Community

Steve is looking for some advice on how his 11-year-old grandson could start learning about photography. Honestly, we think that having such an interest at a young age is something beautiful that must not be taken for granted. So, if you can toss him some piece of advice, we are sure he will be very grateful for anything you can share with him.

He also asked about the meaning of “getting it right on camera“, and shared this curious portrait from the zoo:

Charmaine had the fine consideration of sharing this magnificent portrait from the “African Royalty” with us. In her words, We’ve just got back from spending time in my favorite place, Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park. The black-maned lions in the park are truly majestic!

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 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 567th challenge on Geometry & Symmetry!
