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 homes! Here is the weekly wrap-up from Light Stalking – you'll find carefully curated photos from the general chit chat, as well as some creative images from Tersha's latest photography challenge on Vignettes! 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 – December 14, 2020
This time POTW goes to Charmaine @joubie and her simple yet effective shot. Subtle vignetting suits this delicate subject perfectly and what’s really interesting is the technique that Charmaine used to achieve this type of vignetting.
She placed a piece of bubble wrap over and around the lens hood, fixed it with an elastic band, and cut out a shape on the thirds.
This creative approach worked great! Congrats, Charmaine.

We'd Love To Hear Your Thoughts
Also, our Feedback Forum received 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:
- A Barn on a Snowy Winter Day
- Playing on the Beach
- Storm Surfer
- Storm Surfer 2
- Desert Sunrise
- Desert Sunrise Redo
- Astrophotography/blue hour
- The Star of the Show
- 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. 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 517th challenge on Complementary Colours!
