The author covers the necessary subjects of composition, lighting, exposure, equipment, and other items specific to landscape photography. My complaint with the book is with the photos. Mr. Lange makes extensive use of an enhancing filter, and I quickly became tired of looking at the world through rose colored glasses. The objective though, is to be able to make the photographs come out the way YOU want them to look, and this book can help you learn that. The book is definitely a good purchase, if only for the expertise that the author shares with the reader. For me the book paid for itself within the first few pages though, as I learned to save the cost of purchasing an enhancing filter.
