    I forgot John Mathieson. His work with Ridley Scott in Gladiator and especially Kingdom of Heaven is amazing.

    Emmanuel Lubezki's work is amazing, I specially enjoy Children of men.

    Wally Pfister work is great too, I love what he did in the TDK trilogy and Inception.

    Roger Deakins is one of the best imo, and Skyfall looks incredible, every single shot is beautiful in the trailers.

    I really like Jeff Cronenweths work in TGWTDT.
