Here is our weekly wrap-up – where you'll find finely curated photos from the general chit-chat blended with some creative shots from Tersha's 623rd challenge on Photography your Holiday Dinner! And as you might have guessed by now, some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!

Words by Jasenka Grujin

First things first, happy New Year to everyone.
I hope you guys will have a prosperous, healthy, and creative 2023!
This time I award POTW to @elax and her AI-generated photo of a Christmas dinner. I think it was a fun idea to ask AI to create such a scene, and the results are pretty interesting.
Congrats, Elin!

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

R1ch shared this wonderful shot earlier this month at the Mobile Monday Challenge. He shared the following with us, “I don't use my phone very often because I have a camera, but they do a good job.  I need to start using it more as it is the best camera (the one you have with you). This is my Samsung Note 10 using the On1 Photoraw Mobile app.”

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, a place 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 it 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 624th challenge on Outdoor Photograph in the Holiday Season!
