    Ansel Adams - Examples: The Making of 40 Photographs http://www.amazon.com/Examples-The-...8&qid=1397701821&sr=8-11&keywords=ansel+adams Pay special attention to the not so famous shots in the book. They're the better ones and his explanations are excellent.

    In addition his Portfolios volume is exquisite. http://www.amazon.com/The-Portfolio...702419&sr=8-1&keywords=ansel+adams+portfolios Again pay the most attention to the images that aren't famous. They'll teach you the most.

    Edward Weston - Both of the Daybooks http://www.amazon.com/The-Daybooks-...977&sr=8-2&keywords=daybooks+of+edward+weston and http://www.amazon.com/Daybooks-Edwa...024&sr=8-1&keywords=daybooks+of+edward+weston

    David Plowden - any of his, really, though despite my landscape emphasis this is probably his best book: The End of an Era: The Last of the Great Lake Steamboats http://www.amazon.com/The-End-Era-G...qid=1397702124&sr=8-12&keywords=david+plowden

    For a web site other than here, I can only suggest, repeatedly, Mike Johnston's The Online Photographer http://theonlinephotographer.typepad.com/the_online_photographer/blog_index.html Simply brilliant.
