I'm reading Guy Tal's new ebook, “Creative Processing Techniques” – highly recommended! It offers clear explanations of principles, the reasoning behind his workflow recommendations, and is illustrated with his own great photos.
The best part of the book for me is the look behind the curtains at Guy's thoughts and explorations as he works through the techniques. Guy is a master of his craft, and more importantly, a talented artist who is willing to share his gift and experience to help the rest of us improve our own art.
