I always enjoy Rick Sammons's books, and while this one was no exception, as a source of useful information about HDR Photography it falls short. On the positive side: the pictures he shares with us are beautiful, as is always the case with his books. And I also learned from his explanation of common plug ins that are used to process HDR photos. A few of the shortcomings: this is more of a book for inspiration and admiration of his style as opposed to a guide with useful information. While the pictures are great, the labelling is confusing at times. He references the before and after shots, but they are often not labeled. And sometimes he shows an after shot without showing the before shots. Also, with some of the plug ins more recent versions had been released prior to the release of the book. One example is the Topaz Adjust plug in, where a new version with a significantly different interface had been recently released. Also, when describing how to use some of the plugins he would often recommend strategies such as picking a preset and fiddling around with it. Which we could have figured out on our own. I think that this book would have been better if he had waited 6 months or so to release it. Adobe has just released Photoshop CS5 with a significantly enhanced HDR processing module and including information about that would have made the book much more relevant.
