Yes, well Rowell does a nice line in picture postcard images, he's definitely not my cup of tea :(

If you look at my gallery here:
I think you might get a sense about what is up my "alley". The colour in "colour in winter" is what I like (even if the scan needs a lot of work). Or, see Steveston, or Broken Tree.
These may not be nearly as great as many of the more iconic images referred to in this thread, but I think they give a sense of where my "alley" is.
SO, Matt, you are more of a subtle color guy. Being somewhat color blind I find it difficult to appreciate the subtle colors. Your broken Tree image is a prime example. I looks almost BW. Maybe this is why I tend toward the more in your face colors. Freeman Patterson is about as subtle as I can go.
I like porter and ketchum and also minor whites color photos but that's probably more about his style
Porter is real
