Weekly Photography Assignment: Seabirds

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.

Last Week’s Favourite

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

This week’s winning photo is by Chris Colyer. Chris has photographed the Milky Way brilliantly as it glides over wheal Prosper in Cornwall, UK. The old mine tower gives the shot a great focal point and context of the location. Chris has exposed this shot very well and has created a magical night sky image. Well done Chris!
