Tom,
I don't know Alex Bernasconi personally, and I am aware of Andy Bigggs as well, yes
there is not much between them and certainly some fine photographs.
BUT, you have faied to read my post heading, I said IMHO.
You have yours, and no doubt you have let it be known.

I agree with Hari! Both have some really nice galleries. I guess not beeing a professional photographer (not knowing all technical stuff) makes it easier - I see it more as an artform like a painting - some touch me and some donīt. I am certainly touched by Alex crossing pictures, but then thats just my personal view.

regards,
Tom

Well said, basto. Sometimes looking less at the technical/composition stuff may be more. Either a picture or a song pulls you in or not - it's just too subjective. I actually happen to be one of the very few (I think) who don't get gah gah over those in your face close ups that seem to be all the rage now - although I do understand the appeal and happened to love the closeup shot of Bernasconi's gorrilla with those soulful eyes - no rules.

This was one of the most frustrating and often argued points when I was an art and architect major. These passionate arguements will never be won but are interesting.

Thanks for sharing those wonderful pics. Marc and thanks for your unbiased opinion Tom.

Wow - thanks for sharing this link. I find these photos to be quite beautiful, well shot and well processed. Too many lions? How can there be too many lions?

These are the Africa ones that stand out for me, in no particular order:

And the India ones:

http://www.pbase.com/alex_beb/image/28858261 http://www.pbase.com/alex_beb/image/28858330

With some of these India ones you may be fooled into thinking that they are such typical shots of India, particularly of the Taj Mahal, but they show more skill than you might think at first glance. They convey sights that all visitors see, sights that are ubiquitous and yet, despite how common they are, so few of us achieve images of this calibre. I went to India just a few months back and in preparation I browsed some of the top stock agency websites to get some inspiration to shoot things in ways I might not think of and his images of the same old sights really are better than most of what I found.

I don't think this guy is the most amazing wildlife photographer I've ever come across, not by a long shot, but at the same time, I do think he's got some bloody amazing shots there and is more talented than a first glimpse might indicate!
