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 619th challenge on Using Analogous Colors! And as you might have guessed by now, some worth-seeing shots from the Feedback Forum as well!

Words by Jasenka Grujin

This week we had very cool candidates for POTW, and it wasn’t easy to make the final choice. I picked this shot by @michael because of its poetic value and dramatic colors, while Federico suggested this rather subtle image by @rgatscha.
I attached both of them, and congrats to Michael and Rose Marie!

Great use of organic lines to compose a rather ordinary scene, colors are perfectly balanced, and the image comes alive with two birds gathering around.

Here, you’ll get your work critiqued by plenty of well-intentioned 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:
