Thanks for sharing these e-books with Nikonians members. It must have taken you a lot of time to put together and I for one definitely appreciate your efforts and generosity.
Never one to look a gift horse in the mouth, but I noticed some black text on page 62 image in Book One. It does not look as though it should be there, as it gets lost in the image somewhat. You may want to address that issue, if it is one.
For someone who has travelled with Dylan, played with Iggy Pop and opened for Cream and produced some awesome macro images, I have much admiration and respect. Can anyone have a better lifestyle, not from where I am sitting. Then to offer your work to all for the greater good in photography circles, has to be applauded.

THanks for your generosity. Being stuck at home for some time, I started photographing flowers with a tamron lens, a macro I could afford (see my gallery-jaclegau). Since I have a lot to learn, I am sure that your books will help me. Feel free to comment my gsallery if you have the time.

I would look at adding a navigation pane with links to the sections of the books and you can add links to the Table of Contents entires so one only needs to click on the section and the use is taken to that page.

Thank you very much Michael !!!
I especially like your idea of beauty coming from inside and its reflection on your photography. This makes real sense to me. The photograph should do a lot of talking about itself as well the photographer's nature.
