5.0 out of 5 stars A Cracker 24 Mar 2009
By CM
Format:Hardcover
A beautiful book of quality rather than quantity that concentrates on the subject matter (rather than padding out with endless chapters on choosing memory cards and the like, which is the downfall of many books). The use of different authors for each subject matter is an interesting touch. The images throughout the book are both beautiful, and yet achievable for (what I would expect to be) the 'target audience'. The examples used in the book clearly illustrate the technical and artistic points raised within the text.
My only gripe - and it's a fairly inconsequential one, directed at the editorial department as opposed to the authors, is that there are still a few rather pointless pages on the digital vs. film debate. Anyone not convinced by 2009 is not likely to buy this book - for the next edition, fill that space with some more shots!
I should say that the book is directed, as the cover implies, at the intermediate to expert photographer: I'd be very surprised though, if anyone who picked it up, did not get some valuable advice or inspiration. I am pleased that I bought it!
(As a complete aside, my seven-year-old flicked through the book and noticed that a lovely image of David Noton's is taken from the same cave location of one of the dramatic opening scenes of Narnia - Prince Caspian (page 46). Apparently Mr Noton is now the coolest 'tog ever.......)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book - happy with purchase 6 Feb 2010
Format:Hardcover
This is a great book.

Beautiful pictures throughout with helpful insight into recreating the same effects. There are really useful 'handy tips' throughout it and it will definitely inspire you to go out and do loads of shooting.

Well worth the money - a lovely purchase for yourself or as a gift :)

5.0 out of 5 stars I liked it 1 Dec 2009
By Phil UK
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Good book, very good in fact. I liked the fact it was written by various photographers each of whom gave their own perspective on the subject. It is also primarily a book about photography not about cameras, which is becoming increasingly unusual nowadays. On the whole I'd definitely recommend it.

Just bare in mind these guys are good, in part, because they have the time to sit and wait for the right conditions and light, if necessary for days at a time. We mere mortals are unlikely to have the time or the commitment to do that.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must for Digital Landscape photographers 30 Dec 2010
By Niem
Format:Paperback
This book is fantastic, it covers every thing that you need to know about Landscape photography in great detail. The images in the book are excellent and as it is written by more that one photographer you get lots of varied insight into different areas of Landscape photography. I can not fault this book I have now read it several times and each time I learn a little bit more.

Use your end (EN) apertures (f/22 or f/32) whenever you have a scene where you want as much as possible in focus. &quote;

The real tool we should be using to help us determine correct exposure is the histogram option on the LCD. &quote;

&quote;
Take a photograph of the scene and then check your histogram. Look for a histogram biased as far to the right as you can get it without going over (EFTR). &quote;
