Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Landscape Photographer of the Year: Collection 6 (AA) (Hardcover)
I am blown away by the images in this book. I was so blown away that i showed my wife and insisted she looked at the pictures. Ten minutes later when I had come back from a short drive to pick up my daughter I was met with"We must get up early and do some photography". What praise and appreciation that is from a lady who has only had an interest in photography for 2 months and like to sleep in!
I really did not appreciate that there is so much talent in the Uk when it comes to landscape work. Ansel Adams has been the bi-word in landscape work for decades and he was a great American photographer, but in my view some of these photographers could give him a run for his money.
One of the things which did surprise me is that its the photographer and not the camera. One of the most striking images is taken on an LG camera phone of a dog in a field. What an eye the photographer has and it shows you don't need the latest Nikon or Canon, though most of the images are taken on these two market leaders. There are some great images from small compact cameras, large format cameras and a few film users.
I like this book so much I will be ordering edition seven and will be giving pone as a present to a friend who is a new, but keen photographer.
