Each picture is accompanied by a short description of the conditions under which the photograph was made, together with equipment and shooting data. The pictures are all artful and I'm certain anyone would be pleased to have one of these pictures hanging on a wall. But there's the rub. Books of pictures taken by a single artist or by multiple artists of a single subject have a synergistic effect that help us learn more about the artists work, or the subject. In the "Wildlife Photographer of the Year" annual portfolio each picture stands by itself, to be admired or learned from within the four corners of the individual image. Thankfully there is much to admire in each of these pictures.
My own favorite picture shows a flock of magpies, some landed and other coming in to land. The photograph seems to be taken from a camera on the ground and has that relationship of foreground to background that only a wide angle lens can give. We learn that the picture was taken with a 14-24mm lens fired by an infrared release.Read more ›
