    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Filters or Photoshop? The polariser and neutral density filters are probably the only filters whose effect cannot be replicated by image processing software so I was expecting that this updated book would contain some discussion of the circumstances in which filters work better than software or HDRI techniques, and vice versa. I was disappointed. It contains the advice get it right in camera but no explanation of why, or when, this is the best approach, apart from the lame explanation that it saves time at the computer later. For example, many of the photographs demonstrate the use of a ND grad to darken the sky. This works adequately when the horizon is a straight line but is less satisfactory when it is a more complex shape - surely this is one case where software would work better. The introduction claims that all the photographers featured in the book use filters to better represent reality, not to distort it. I wish this was correct. The majority of the photographs in this book are excellent and demonstrate how a subtle use of filters can improve an image, but there are some exceptions where filters are used to create blatantly unnatural effects; these would not be out of place in a book on how not to use filters.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feeling Inspired Same review for the first book. But left even more inspired. After flipping through a few pages and reading a lot of it I found myself getting inspired about photography which is exactly what the name suggests it should do. It showed that I was doing some things right and some things wrong and I just want to take more photos to see how I can improve. Which is more than I can say for most books I read that seem like text books. It's a nice change.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inspiring Book I am new to the use of filters and this book illustrates the use of filter techniques by many great photographers. Very straight forward.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inspired Professionals, indeed Not only do they show which Lee filters they are using but the placement over the lens. This book tops the first book by the same name.
