    For photography itself, I would like to recommend the following 2 books from Bryan Peterson.
    1) Understanding Exposure
    2) Learning To See Creatively

    For landscapre photography, I would like to recommend John Shaw's Nature Photography Field Guild.

    All are excellent.

    I second the John's Shaw Nature Photography Field Guide. It's an excellent aid to improving your photography

    Where can we get all these books??
    Are they available in local major bookstores? (e.g. Borders)
    Great photography is about depth of feeling, not depth of field.

    You can try check it out from acmabooks and if interested maybe you can join this MO thread

    *MOST* of the time, book selling at acmabooks is cheaper than those you can getting outside but not all the time.

    oh man! totally agree with you roosevelt! John Hedgecoe's Photographer's Handbook rocks i tell ya. Clear, concise, and filled with every single crap a photographer needs to know. Another book, though in my opinion is meant for the pros, is Mark Lucock Professional Lanscape and Environmental Photography.
