Wow, how exciting! I will definitely be picking up a copy of that book. And I love the panorama shot!THANK YOU for the kind words and vote of confidence.
I might as well let the cat out of the bag...
YES, I do plan on getting a book published on this. Actually that has been my plan from day 1. My intent was to use this thread as a growing, learning tool to get better not only as a photographer but a writer as well. I wanted to post at least 300 different tutorials (I'm getting very close to that) and then take the top 100 of those and reformat them into a book form.
I've written about 95% of the book and am getting ready to send part of it to a company for page layout, cover design and editing. They will print a sample of it that I can send to publishers. I hope to have that part done in the next 3 to 4 weeks.
I could do it as an E-book but I am old fashioned and really want to try the actual publishing route first. If I cannot get a publisher to publish it as an actual book, I will consider going the E-book route.
Most of the content has come from this column but a lot of it I've written separately, just for the book. The chapter on Fireworks alone is 28 pages.
On a separate note, If I can get my work done in a reasonable time today I hope to have a new tutorial up later tonight. In the mean time, here's a pretty epic (if I do say so myself) Cars Land photo for today.
