Hi there folks, here is your long-awaited community wrap-up, filled with stunning images – maybe they'll inspire you to improve your own photography or simply try out a new shooting technique.
Here you'll find as usual, some rigorously curated stuff from the general chit chat as well as some beautiful shots from Tersha's latest challenge on Minimalism! And as you've already guessed by now, we'll be mentioning the most engaging shots from the Shark Tank as well.
Photo Of The Week – March 16th, 2020
Photo by Tobie
I usually try to mix up the photography genre and the winning photographer from week to week, so that we have different types of pictures to admire from different people.
However, this shot is too exquisite to pass up and not be awarded. We will have to live with wildlife photography for two weeks in a row from the same photographer.
Congratulations, Tobie, you’re on a roll here lately!
What Are Our Members Up To?
These are our favorite shots from the 477th Challenge, so sit back and enjoy the ride!

What You Shouldn't be Missing from the Light Stalking Community
Simon shared a couple of golf-related shots with us the other day. Here you can watch them, and our favorite is this one:
Erik shared an example of how the human presence can trigger a peculiar aesthetic experience in human beings watching a photograph. Here you can analyse the contrast between the shot with people and the still-life if you wish.
He also shared this link with us, here you'll find the 2020's “Agora’s nature photo contest”.
Patrick shared a nice collage with us earlier this week:
Robert Apple shared a very insightful solution for those frustrations we all have suffered regarding hosting changes for storing photographs.
We'd Love To Hear Your Thoughts
Our beloved Shark Tank is getting pretty sweet as many of you guys are 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 photography learning curve.
Here you'll get your work critiqued by many well-intended people, but you'll also have a chance to critique your peers. We are able to help you become a better photographer by doing this! We truly believe in the power of criticism and feedback, and we promote it via The Shark Tank.
Here many of our members have nurtured their own photographic knowledge by giving out elaborate critiques that go way beyond a simple emoji-based reactions or “nice shot” comments. By receiving critiques we can find flaws that aren't easy for us to spot. Here are some of the most interesting shots shared during the last week:
- Moreton Bay Moonrise
- Come On!
- Flower Photography
- Jonathan’s Way
- Backyard Fun
- Gold Miner on the Irrawady
- Yo Yos
- Bird on a Wire
- Lady in chainsaw
The Shark Tank is a great place to learn and to discuss, so please read the instructions in order to get a better experience. Share your comments, opinions and doubts on any or all of the images above. We will be delighted to see some of your own images. Don't be shy, critiques are given to photographs and not photographers, so don't be afraid of sharing.
We and many other members will be more than pleased to help you out; after all, we all are in love with photography. Don't skip participating in the newest challenge published by Tersha on a timeless classic, Reflections! Also, join our friendly photography community if you haven't done it already!
