This is lovely paper...great definition and depth (on both sides) and happy with it for book making. It is fairly sensitive to touch. Canson profile is spot on on my Epson printer.

3.0 out of 5 stars Mixed response, 18 April 2014

The only other review on Amazon UK is so muchmore positive than mine...

(“Road to Seeing” was released a few days ago, but already it is evident that this is a book that will become a benchmark in the field of photography literature in the years to come, both for the author and for his colleagues. Maybe I can only regret that I was not able to read it many years ago when I had a lot more free time and was able to absorb like a sponge everything I read inside")

...that I looked at the reviewers other feedback. It appears he is able to read and review three or four books a day, so he is obviously more experienced that I am.

I got it for half price, and it is big and very well produced.
Dan Winter is obviously hugely successful, talented and comes across as a decent sort of man.
This book strikes me as a bit of a 'vanity project' - and if I had even 5% of the accomplishment that he has I would feel like sharing it - so no problem with that.
However it did not teach me much other that about Dan and his preferences, and as I said, he is very talented in many ways so there is some interest there. But don't expect any trade secrets or helpful techniques...he is not about that. If you like his work, and success inspires you, then this will be to you liking.

1.0 out of 5 stars Slows browsing by huge amount, 9 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have used Kaspersky for many years, updating every year. Always been happy with it. Bought 3 PC version of 2014. Both PC's (Win 7) are very markedly slower browsing since moment of installation - as much as 50% I estimate. Will not be able to put up with this for long. Looked at Kaspersky Forum and it says its a known issue for which there will be a patch. I do not find this particularly reassuring for some reason.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Flash, 19 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Fiddling about with 'strobist' lighting and find this is perfectly adequate to my needs - a few portraits and some outdoor supplementary lighting. Have only had to use it on full power a couple of times. Good and solid. Very happy with it. Excellent to use in commander mode on Nikon DSLR.
