    And I have to say that Francesco's work has been inspiring me to start lugging my 4x5 equipment out to look for worthy images again.

    For people pix: Avedon and Arbus

    For landscape B&W: Minor White, E. Weston, John Sexton

    For color landscape: Galen Rowell Mountain Light Gallery, and Robert YOUR pictures in the gallery are inspiring me to pick me up up some of that Velvia and chase the light, so you're on my list too (lucky you! )

    Couldn't find much on the web in the way of representative work. These are but a poor reflection of his brilliance. River of Colour is an unqualified masterpiece.

    Joe,

    Thanks for the kind words, but I sure don't deserve it. I'm just lucky to live in such a beautiful place as Hawaii.

    The results so far are great, I've really enjoyed seeing all these new websites and the work of photographers I didn't even know about. I'm curious about some of the choices of our friends from downunder (Australia, New Zealand) would make.

    Still excited about images...

    When I think about still lifes, no one beats Paul Caponigro. His work is by far some of the most amazing I have ever seen.

    For landscape work? I am still thinking.

    There are so many who inspire me to go out and shoot and for as many different reasons. To name a few who spring to mind and in no particular order.

    Horst.
    Karsh.
    H-C-B
    Erwitt (Love the dogs)
    Mapplethorpe for the flowers
    Weston
    Stephen Dalton (High speed flash)
    Adams
    Eamon mccabe
    Brandt
    Bailey (even though he's sold out to Olympus or canon?)
    Tina mcclelland (Her self portraits are very thought provoking.)
    Hipgnosis (Album covers)
    Doisneau


    And the list could go on. and on

    As much as I admire many photographers here I'd like to mention Cheryl Jacobs on the list. I can't put it into words but her work with children has a special something that makes it stand out, to my mind at any rate.

    Cheers

    Martin
