The results of the Book Challenge have been so interesting that I have made two shows out of them. This is the first part.

If you want to buy Akkana Peck’s book from amazon.com in the US, go to her website and use her link. She get’s a bit more money out of it and you pay the same.

It’s worth to keep an eye on John Arnold’s Photowalkthrough, perhaps something special is coming up there. 😉

  2. Thanks for the nice things you’ve said about my photo.

    It was hand-held (no tripod) and the composition is more luck than any judgement on my behalf.

    Thanks for showing the artist notes as well. I felt it was important that the artist got full credit for his creation.
