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 elementsThe 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.

Simply Beautiful Photographs is beyond simple. It is brought to us by National Geographic and Annie Griffiths; both the embodiments of supreme talent. Anything by Nat. Geo. is amazing, in my book, and Annie Griffiths is a stellar photographer and writer.<br/><br/>The whole book is divided into sections; Light, Composition, Palette, Time, &amp; Wonder. Each section is introduced with beautifully written introductions. These introductions portray the different aspects of photography in a wonderful light and show people the true art of it. The true skill it takes to make these images.<br/><br/>I think Simply Beautiful Photographs is a must have coffee-table book, especially if you're a photographer.
