A superb volume with wide appeal,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wildlife Photographer of the Year Portfolio 23 (Hardcover)
This is a beautiful hardback book running to around 150 pages and it has now become a matter of routine to order this annually published volume - this one is Portfolio 23.
The book is sumptuously printed on good quality gloss paper and contains not only some wonderful pictures but also a really informative commentary on both the wildlife and pictures themselves. In many cases there is also an insight into how the picture was taken and what the photographer set out to achieve. For the technically minded every photograph has details of the equipment and primary settings used to capture the image - the brands Canon and Nikon are unsurprisingly the most frequently occurring!
This book is a gem for both photographers as well as those with an interest in nature. Ours is left on the coffee table throughout the year and browsed with great frequency by us as well as visitors. This book makes an excellent Christmas present although, be warned, once you buy it, it's likely to become an annual purchase.
In summary, a superb book in terms of both content and production. Recommended.
