    Chances are, she'll love whichever one you get her. Ansel Adams is widely known for his nature photographs. I honestly don't know much about Avedon. This is the first time I recall hearing his name. A brief search on the internet doesn't reveal much to go on.

    I'm sure that either one would be fine.

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    From the options, Ansel would be the best pick for nature.
    For street work, you might want to consider Henri Cartier-Bresson, Elliot Erwitt, Steve McCurry etc. Please visit this link for more names and research.

    Avedon was more in to fashion, portraits etc.
