Check Out What Was Cooking At Light Stalking Last Week


Photography has the power of lightening 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 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 594th challenge on Architecture at Night! And of course, we'll introduce some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum too!

Photo Of The Week – June 13th, 2022

Photo by Timothy S. Allen

Words by Jasenka Grujin

This time POTW goes to @timothy-a again!

Among all the shots I’ve seen this week, Timothy’s one stood out because of the classic look and skillful editing that perfectly suits the subject.

The composition is also great since it’s not cluttered and the beautiful evening sky appears as important as the building itself without competing with it.

Congrats, Timothy!

There's something mysterious yet nostalgic about this heavily lit porch in the middle of the night. The colors compliment each other in a soothing way, and the two swing chairs invite the imagination to kick in a story of some kind.

Can you spot the photographer in the middle of the night?

The tonal treatment in this photograph delivers some sort of a lunar experience to the eyes! Not to mention the perfect reflections that got captured in the water as well.

So many stories going on within this frame of the “island Ferry Terminal – late-night runs.”

Despite a large number of elements competing with each other in the scene, the visual selection feels somewhat elegant and futuristic as well.

Lightroom is a great tool for developing raw files, and even a single frame like this can take a couple of hours to tweak depending on the given attention to the details composed.

Even when little, small patches of red have the power to draw attention like nothing else within the photographic world. The artificial light and the solitude vibe captured in this photograph, clearly speak about the darkest hours in the middle of the night.

Look closer, and you'll find out that this is a single photograph!

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

Steve got this peaceful shot after contemplating the light on his porch:

No, it is not Nessy that Jim captured with his camera the other day. This is from a Noosa Everglades cruise, a few days back. Also interesting, there are only two everglades in the whole world, Florida and Noosa, Queensland, AU (this is Noosa).

Dave shared this jumpy friend with us:

Also, this jumbled pile of washed-up reeds, watch the bold texture in it!

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 of critiquing 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 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 595th challenge on Streets at Nights!
