5.0 out of 5 stars It's all about the image!, 14 May 2013
This review is from: Landscape Photographer of the Year Collection: 5 (Photography) (Hardcover)
A hugely attractive series of prizewinning landscape photographs, from the UK. I haven't seen the whole series, but certainly this beautiful tome (No 5) has whetted my appetite for more. There's so much to enjoy in this collection of over two hundred varied, and illuminating images from both rural and urban environments. Images are in colour and monochrome - some `photoshopped', others not so much.

Some naturally, are more to my taste than others, but all are well composed and considered. Some of the most enjoyable images for me are those that use light creatively whether captured by those hardy souls that haunt the highways and byways at whatever o'clock in the morning, or those that appreciate that magical golden light of a sunny evening to transform the most mundane of urban settings.

Standouts in this collection are absorbing images of lonely salt marshes, ancient packhorse bridges, standing stones, a wonderfully imaginative image of St Paul's cathedral reflected on the wet pavement, and an amazing scene taken from the BT tower in London - you have to get the book to see what it is!!

Full of ideas and inspiration - for both the novice, and professional photographer. However you don't have to even own a camera to thoroughly enjoy this rewarding tome over and over again.
