The Last Week Spectrum: Timeless Tales Through Community Lenses


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 618th challenge on Using Complementary Colours! And as you might have guessed by now, some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!

strong electric colors closeup

Words by Jasenka Grujin

This week we had many amazing candidates!
My favorite was this closeup shot by @michael because of the super intense colors that feel so vibrant and electric. The image would make a head-turning movie or concert poster.
Congrats, Michael.

On the streets, pleasantly capturing colors is difficult, to say the least; but the results are worth the effort, as you can see.

Great portrait! And purple with yellow offer one of the most interesting color complementation in photography as well.

Contrast with color can also be achieved by using soothing saturations as well.

colorful bokeh
Cool imagery, and for those wondering how this is achieved, we recommend looking for “bokeh” on the search bar above.

Red and green are perhaps the most abundant color complementation in nature.

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

Philip has an ongoing project about capturing images showing extraordinary beauty in ordinary things. This is not at sunset or sunrise. It is not over the mountains for a tropical beach. It is just mid-afternoon of an autumn day in the ordinary English countryside.

And here he shared this nicely composed finding of a Kettle and a jug. “Perhaps it is a pair of unwanted items left to decay in a place they do not belong. Perhaps they are side by side not because they choose to be but because they have no choice, so they rust and corrode together”.

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, 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 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 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 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 619th challenge on Using Analogous Colours!
