His prints are genuinely incredible. I live in San Diego, and he's got a gallery in an area here called La Jolla. The first time I walked into his gallery, it was pretty incredible. 10 foot wide panoramas that are pin sharp even if you stand super close to them. Great frames, great lighting, great design in the gallery. Are they over priced? Yes, very. But obviously people are buying them so I guess they're priced just right.
In the past few years, many other photography galleries have opened on the same street, some just a few doors down from Lik. It's fucking embarassing because you know everybody is comparing the photos to peter liks, and they're pretty fucking bad. The only gallery that's close to being as impressive is the National Geographic gallery, and even that isn't that good compared to Lik.
With that being said, images like those in the OP are terrible. I hate the composite images he does, and his claim of shooting film (that's what the sales guys say) the claim of not using photoshop, all that shit. I'd say that roughly 30% of the images in his gallery are purely composite images from elements not even in the same place or grossly enhanced, such as clone stamping in branches. But fuck, they look great in person
