    Highly recommended

    I really like this book. I like that the creators of each image explain the steps to how their image was created and they also write about their thoughts about the image & also about themselves. For some of the images, the explanations are somewhat general but, they still explain the steps to obtain the final image. The book is inspiratonal because it teaches you how you can also create stunning images that seem almost inpossible to do. Without these explanations, I would have not been able to figure out how they did this and it has given me ideas so that I can also be more creative with my photography.

    The book is well written and it has become an excellent creative photo reference book for me.
