Photography has the power of brightening up our lives – and what a great thing it is to start our days by checking out beautiful images in the comfort of our homes! 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 Film Looks! 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 30, 2020
This time POTW goes to @tersha and her polystyrene head.
The soft features of this face combined with the strong contrast in b&w create an unusual atmosphere. There’s something sad yet elegant about it, as if the head belongs to a regal female character that died in a strange way (that would work in a film noir!). The texture of polystyrene gives an additional touch of mystery because it makes us wonder if the head is real at all – it looks a bit like digital art.
We have a runner up this week – it’s @aurikami with his brilliant minimalist portrait. It’s as cinematic as it gets.

We'd Love To Hear Your Thoughts
Also, 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 that want to grow fast as photographers. This is possible thanks to valuable and positive feedback, which is perhaps the best way to hack the learning curve in photography.
Here you'll get your work critiqued by plenty of well-intended people, but you'll also have a chance to critique 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:
- The Star of the Show
- Black and White Stream
- iPhone Portrait
- Well Edited Feedback
- Either family at rest or got em!
- Even the young are struggling

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. We'll be more than pleased to help you out; after all, we all are in love with photography. Also, don't forget to participate in our 515th challenge on Your Choice!
