2.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected - a sales brochure for filters, 26 July 2010
Maybe I'm being a bit harsh, but I was hugely disappointed when I received this book.

I was hoping for a book which would encourage me to 'think outside the box' creatively but, apart from a few creative ideas, most of the content seems to be an advertisment for a particular brand of filter. The comments usally consist of 'I used a xxx filter to produce the effects shown on these images and moved the camera about a bit' together with a note of the adjustments made in photoshop.

Perhaps I bought the wrong Tony Sweet book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book written by a truly great photographer, 3 May 2010
Sadly, many books on photography appear to be written by people whose efforts as a photographer don't match their writing abilities!

Before buying books on photography I always take a look at a range of images the author has written - and very often I don't rate them as much better photographers than myself.Not so with Guy Edwardes. It was after taking a look at his images on the web that I was persuaded to buy his first book and I wasn't dissapointed - it's still one of the few books I still dip into frequently.

This latest offering is equally impressive. The amount of information supplied about each image makes it a useful book for both the beginner and the professional photographer. I particularly like the idea of each chapter containing one 'tip' - a review of the index is a useful quick reminder of the skills you will learn in this book.

It covers the whole range of nature photography from birds in flight to macro photography and is a very welcome addition to my bookshelf. Every image from this clearly talented photographer deserves 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars More information than you'll ever need !, 3 May 2010
This review is from: A Life of Ospreys (Paperback)
This is a book so full of fascinating information on Ospreys that it's a real testament to the lifetime effort that Roy Dennis has put in to getting to know these birds and reintroducing them to the UK. As well as a wealth of information on the history and characteristics of this magnificent bird it also contains a comprehensive recounting of the story of how these birds were reintroduced.

5.0 out of 5 stars great book from a photographer I rate highly!, 20 Jan 2007
There are plenty of books on landscape photography. Before I bought this, I took at look at several of the web sites of the authors. It was only Guy Edwardes images that I found consistently inspiring which is why I opted for this book. It is equally inspiring and will be hard to beat. Highly recommended - for the images AND the text.
