Welcome to the 189th round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!
I’m blown away by both the volume and incredible creative quality of your responses to the theme of Glow! This has been a banner week for submissions, which made for a bit more reading and commenting, which was a lot of fun! I really enjoyed reading your posts! One of the most fascinating aspects is that there were so many different approaches to the theme. It underscores the power of the human mind!
Thank you all for the effort you put into your posts and the creative outpouring!
Here’s a bit more glow…
The glow of fire is one of the most primal glows that we humans experience, as it has brought us further along the evolutionary path and started a revolution in what we might be able to achieve. In this long exposure with motion blur image, I tried to capture that primal power and its creative energy.

Here comes the twenty-fifth mystery location post of this year….
Last week’s offering was correctly identified as the Cliffs of Moher! Well done! For this week, I’m offering you an old travel snap that goes back a ways to 2002… It was interesting to see how much digital photography has progressed since then!
There’s plenty of water here!
As this is a rather easy one to identify, I’m curious to see what else you can tell me about this image…
Welcome to week 189 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!
Thank you all for the incredible amount of Peace that flowed throughout last week’s posts! This week, I’ve selected another theme that has been inspired by one of the images I captured in Liverpool just over a month ago. While doing some additional editing, I played around with one of the night-time shots to get it to speak a bit more. This led to an image with a rather warm Glow, which is pushed very much by the wonderful street lighting they have around the Albert Docks.
I think that the interesting part of this challenge will be your choice of direction with the theme of Glow…will you opt for the glow of an ember, a firefly, or the glowing praise that is heaped on a great performance? There are many choices, so feel free to push the boundaries and shoot for that glowing review!
This is definitely one theme that has me curious to see what you might create!! Have fun and go wild!
Here’s the image that inspired the theme…
The Albert Docks are a lovely area to explore during the evening hours with great restaurants and entertainment. A couple of notes about the creation of this image, as it’s a bit non-standard for me; the shot was captured on an iPhone 11 Pro Max using the NeuralCam app. This app is great for night photography, such as this. I then processed the image using Aurora HDR and used a toned down Misty Landscape preset (at 59%), which also added a bit of grain to the clouds. I cleaned that image up in PhotoShop with a bit of sharpening, a little soft light overlay and popped the contrast somewhat. I cropped it to adjust the aspect ratio to get this result.
The full rules of this challenge are in TPC Guidelines, but here’s the tl;dr:
Create a pingback link to this post, so that I can create a post showing all of the submissions over the week (note: pingbacks may not appear immediately, as my site is set up to require approval for linking to it; helps against previous bad experiences with spamming)
Have fun creating something new (or sharing something old)!!
May your creative energy glow and light the path to a wonderful image!

Thank you all very much for your creative posts on this week’s theme of Peace! It’s clear from your posts that each of you are passionate about the subject and that there’s much that we can do around the globe to work toward a more peaceful existence for all! I really appreciate the thought that you put into your posts, as they were wonderful to read!
Thank you for another great week!
Here’s another bit of peace…
For me, spending a cold January day out on the beach and capture some interesting images, as I’m surrounded by the peace and quiet of Nature. This particular day was after a week of heavy snow, so that there was still snow on the beach, which is not a frequent sight. The day was windy and cold, but my heart was filled with peace from the experience.

As it’s been a couple of weeks, since the last post in this series. As I am in the mode of doing a bit of experimentation with Aurora and Luminar 4, I thought it might be interesting to share this image. I expect that the location might be figured out pretty quickly….
The views here are simply stunning!
The only gotcha is that you don’t want to step too far forward…
