A beautiful book. It combines three of my favorite things -

* Absolutely breathtaking pictures from National Geogrphic
* A brief discussion on the elements of photography - light, composition, moment, motion, palette, and wonder
* Quotes - famous and not so famous - about photography and the specific elements

The book is organized into sections - one for each element. The section is introduced with a brief essay and then followed up by national geographic pictures that illustrate that particular element. Each photograph includes a caption with the photographic credits. Interspersed throughout are quotes. This would be considered a "coffee table" book, but I liked the physical size of the book. It is not so bulky.

If you are looking for a detailed how-to book, this is not it. If you are looking to be inspired, then this is the book for you. ( )
