    Above average genre book

    I bought the book for the CD. Most publishers can spit out a stock photo based eye-candy rainforest book at will so I didn't pay much attention to the pictures. I did look through what I bought and concluded that I can recommend this book because of its layout and unobtrusive excellent annotation. However, while the photography is excellent: the first chapter cons us into believing that the book was indeed shot in the rainforest with excellent rainforest panoramas. In fact my favorite shot in the entire book is the one on page 42-43 showing both the strength and weakness of the rainforest. But the rest of the book tends to be extreme macro work that could have been shot on a studio table-top in New York City for all the visual information it gives. Yea, I know it's difficult to light the background in wide shots in the forest but then one doesn't spend 40 bucks on easy street. The author needs to set aside his 200 mm micro-Nikkor and figure out how to light 55 or 105 mm macro shots. But since the printing of the shots is excellent and the CD is surprisingly good, I can recommend this as THE rainforest picturebook buy.
