Way to go, Ross! I'm ordering the book now, and taking it to Maine with me next month! Great to know your work is in (and on) there!

Quite honestly that wasn't the picture that was supposed to be on the cover (at least not that I was aware of). When they told me they said this one:

But hey, that one made it inside anyways :)

Photographically, Ross, the one that was supposed to be on the color was a far better choice... Some editor blew it IMO:!:

Ross, is that photo they told you would be on the cover the one that is on page 89? That is a beautiful photo.

Personally, I think the photo you posted is better than the one that made the cover, but you have the cover shot plus at least one more in the book. I wish I could say that!

The inside pic is better, but it also works much better in the horizontal format you posted. If I'm the editor or graphic artist tasked with filling that particular cover format, I'd save the horizontal for inside and fill the cover frame with a more closely-cropped shot. That's pretty much what they did. If I were not locked into that template, I would have preferred to redesign the cover to used the more horizontal photo and the better colors it sets. But that's just IMHO. Now I have to go lay out some newspaper editorial pages, and unfortunately Ross isn't controversial enough to use there! :)

Heh, i agree. But hey, they used about 8 or 10 photos, so I can't complain. :)
