    I have an embarrassing lack of familiarity with B&W LF landscape photographers work in general (not promoted in bookstores that I have frequented over the years) and so abstain on voting.

    I can only say that I was blown away by the tonal range and detail of Sexton's Places of Power which prodded me to review his landscape work some of which is extraordinary, and then there is the LF mountain images of Siro Shirahata which showed me how LF B&W (and his color work) could behave in such extreme locations. Adam's Yosemite of course with several stand outs including his subtle Tenaya Creek in Spring (I had a friend now deceased many years who owned an original 11x14 (I think) of this - enjoyable).

    I appreciate others sharing their likes so I can explore books for which I have no knowledge. Googling some, Barnbaum's more abstract work and Burtynsky's B&W images look interesting. But what pushed me to try LF was the LF color used in high end interior design magazines, and the LF work of Porter, Hyde and eventually Pat O'Hara (though he used 35mm far too often and eventually moved to 6x7).

    I don't have five, but want to give a shout out to Ralph Eugene Meatyard's photographs of Kentucky's Red River Gorge in The Unforeseen Wilderness. That small book really moved me and the photographs will be on exhibit at The Speed Museum in Louisville, Kentucky starting later in August 2021.

    I forgot about him. I was gifted one of his books and enjoy many of his images. A friend visited his gallery many years ago and was impressed with his prints. He prefers using modern lenses which adds a certain step up in overall image quality.
