Weekly Photo Assignment: Urban Nature

Each week we’ll be giving you a theme that you can submit a photo for, and we’ll choose our favourite to be featured on the Nature TTL website. Participating in these assignments will be a great way for you to force yourself to push the boundaries of your photography and improve together as a community on the website.

Week 114: Urban Nature

Our theme this week is Urban Nature. This week we would like to see your images of nature in unexpected places, living in and making use of the man-made world. Fauna or flora, show us what you can find in your city, town, or even on your street. We can’t wait to see what you photograph! 

Here are some tutorials to help you:

Last Week’s Favourite

Here is our favourite submission from last week’s theme, Landscape. You can view all of the entries here.

This week’s winner is from VPS Photography. This desert mood rise taken in Erg Chigaga has been exposed very well and showcases a unique Morrocan landscape. The pattern in the sand creates lines that lead the eye from the foreground of the photo to the full moon in the distance. The overall effect is a strong landscape. Well done!
