Photography has the power of brightening up our lives; and what a great thing it is to start our days by checking out some beautiful images in the comfort of our homes! Here is the weekly wrap-up from Light Stalking – where you'll find finely curated photos from the general chit chat, as some creative images from Tersha's latest photography challenge on Red! And as you've already guessed, we'll be mentioning some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum too!

Photo Of The Week – December 27th, 2020

This time POTW goes to @diripics and his tea candle.

I like the simplicity of this image and the fact that dusty whitish outline feels so ancient, as if no one has touched this candle for a long time. I have a weak spot for nostalgic vibes.

I also rarely see red and brown together (red and black is much more common in photography and design), so that’s another great thing about this shot.

Congrats, Graham.

The leading line is perfect, and all the compositional elements work splendidly in this shot. There's no way one misses that beautiful bright-red train coming through the frame.

Xmas decorations offer a nice world of visual exploration.

Red against white or muted tones always makes a brilliant composition.

Even everyday moments appear more interesting when using the colour red.

This is indeed a lovely finding and a great reminder of always keeping our eyes open when walking in the woods.

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 in which someone can hack the learning curve in photography.

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:

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 519th challenge on Contrasting Colours!
