4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as Last year's volume 4! 31 Oct 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Ok, first thing to comment on is the amazing Amazon service. I pre-ordered the book and Amazon managed to deliver it several days before it's actual release date ~ fantastic. Now to the book itself, I've bought every volume of The Landscape Photographer of the Year since the competition started so I feel I can give an honest review.

Last year's book was my personal favourite, this year's is good but doesn't quite get to the standards of the previous year. The books often get criticised for people photographing the same places over and over again. And again this year there are the familiar locations being shot but there are more new places getting to grace its pages, so an improvement there. Also included are some fabulous shots of architecture which in my view are the best there has been of this type of genre over the years. The Network Rail pictures show an improvement over last year. But the reason why I'd rate the book as not quite as good as before is the actual landscape photographs aren't to the same standard as last year.

Congratulations to all those who made it into the book, as someone who has entered and failed to get in I know how high the standard is. If you are a budding landscape photographer you should buy this book as it will give you something to aim for. I've been on a number of workshops run by one of the winners, Doug Chinnery, and definitely feel my photography has improved as a result. Doug's winning image this year is in his own words a bit of marmite. You will either love it or hate it but there is no doubt as with the other photographers in the book he is very talented.

5.0 out of 5 stars Landscapes to inspire 30 Dec 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Another cracking portfolio of stunning scenic landscapes.
I've purchased all 5 volumes & really like the comments associated with the photos.
I particularly like the fact they're taken in the UK & I've a chance to visit some of these locations...because of the photos.
There really are so many talented photographers out there.
An inspirational book you'll keep going back to for many years.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great pix 20 Dec 2012
By judith
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
There are some great landscape pix in this collection . . . what else would you expect?
I bought this as a gift for someone, and only leafed through it before putting the Christmas wrapping paper on it. My cavils have to do with the British Railways prize pictures, which were, in general, a bit on the conventional side. The main landscape competition yielded some much more interesting images, which I looked at in order to look mainly at composition. (This is the main point of access to images for us non-techie amateurs . . . I understand why the techies would want more info about exposure times, apertures and all that . . . but for me and -- I hope -- my friend, compositions which capture our experience in the great outdoors are what we are aiming for.)

Also, unlike many "image books" produced in UK (for example exhibition catalogues from the major museums) the publisher/editor of this book appears to have paid a lot of attention to the accurate reproduction of the images (colour replication, quality of paper, binding, etc).

I would have given it five stars, but the BR sub-competition was a bit off.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Present for Photography lovers 19 Dec 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this as a present for a friend who loves art, painting and taking photographs. I have tried not to leaf through it too much but from what I have seen it has a fabulous selection of photographs and I would consider buying some of the others in the series. To be fair I only gave it 4 stars because I didn't have any of the others to compare it with so perhaps I am being a bit mean.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's all about the image! 14 May 2013
A hugely attractive series of prizewinning landscape photographs, from the UK. I haven't seen the whole series, but certainly this beautiful tome (No 5) has whetted my appetite for more. There's so much to enjoy in this collection of over two hundred varied, and illuminating images from both rural and urban environments. Images are in colour and monochrome - some `photoshopped', others not so much.

Some naturally, are more to my taste than others, but all are well composed and considered. Some of the most enjoyable images for me are those that use light creatively whether captured by those hardy souls that haunt the highways and byways at whatever o'clock in the morning, or those that appreciate that magical golden light of a sunny evening to transform the most mundane of urban settings.

Standouts in this collection are absorbing images of lonely salt marshes, ancient packhorse bridges, standing stones, a wonderfully imaginative image of St Paul's cathedral reflected on the wet pavement, and an amazing scene taken from the BT tower in London - you have to get the book to see what it is!!

Full of ideas and inspiration - for both the novice, and professional photographer. However you don't have to even own a camera to thoroughly enjoy this rewarding tome over and over again.

(Details of user's cameras/accoutrements are given at the back.)
