A friend recently forwarded me a link (following) to magazine "Cowboys & Indians, The Premiere Magazine of the West - and a section containing a wildlife photo competition final selection. His brother Stu had won the competition - but what a group of photographers he was going up against. I work in the architectural photo field primarily and unfortunately don't get a chance to look at to much of this type of work...but I was really impressed by the work of one photographer in particular from that competition - named Jackie Crivello (link following).
After reading the all the recent comments about the fake shot of the Wildlife Photogrpaher of the Year winner was (one that I thought was unbelieveably bad as a photo)...it brought to mind the words of Jay Maisel...light, color, gesture. It's not that you've shot a picture of a "wolf" - there must be something more...what is that "more"?
I find her work to be on the whole...quite inspiring...sure not every shot on the site is a keeper...but boy there are some GOOD ONES.http://www.jcrivello.com/http://www.cowboysindians.com/multimedia/s...st-wildlife.jsp
