    There is no "Best". No #1 in this endeavor.

    There are very good photographers whose vision and the craft that allows them, after long study and effort, to express it in print.

    If you want #1, stick with sports. Even that is transitory and ever changing.
    This is a good post. I had another thread I started about who your favorite photographers were and genre. I think some were surprised (offended?) I didn't care for Sally Mann. I think what's great about photography is that, like painting, it has run the gamut from documentation of history, to some creativity, to wild expressions of your inner vision (Man Ray maybe..Uelsmannn..) just like painting has. We can document or express ourselves how we like. I spent last night printing the same boring print ten times with different sharpening methods to see what I might want to use on my 4x5 landscapes moving forward. I'm undecided, but I enjoy the process as much as tacking the photo to the wall.

    And let's not forget Fatali's use of supplemental lighting many years ago, which was done in a way I can't imagine AA would ever accept or even tolerate.

    I can imagine that taking photgraphs in a misty, cold, wet Great Britain, on the doorstep, could be a little bit more exigent and demanding than hiking in a dry and sunny National Park in Western US.
    I've watched quite a few of his videos. Cripes, its ALWAYS raining in them. I would be miserable, but he makes the best of it for sure. I've grown to like the bloke : )

    I would argue that Edward Burtynski is currently on the top of the list of working landscape photographers.. he can turn ugly into pretty a good feat.

    As far as I am concerned I can say, to my apology, that for me taking photographs with silver halogenide emulsions does not include producing digital output ...

    There are to much pictures around, anyway, this is why I turned toward 4x5.

    And seeing pictures on a LCD screen isn't the same like seeing them on a wall.

    Therefore I am in the comfortable - and legitimate - situation to comment on the works of others (whenever they think they should show them and ask for opinions) - without facing the necessity to show my own "works" ...

    But my comments aren't offending, never ever - as a scientist who studied art history and philosophy I have got a pretty large range of instruments to talk about art without getting personal
