"I think ~EvidencE~ is one of the most versatile photographers I have seen on Flickr. When you browse his stream you can find pictures of all kinds, from HDR over amazing landscapes to macro and Urbex. It seems that everything is within his skillful photographic horizon. It is always a pleasure for me to browse through his work and I am very happy to have met him here on Flickr and hope to have the opportunity to meet him one day in real life. One of the things I appreciate mostly in Flickr is the possibility to get in touch with such extraordinary people."

"~EvidencE~ lives his art. He is blessed with an eye into nature's most precious mysteries, capturing the delicate and beautiful for us to be inspired and grateful. This gifted Artist who uses his camera instead of a brush, who sketches with light, while magnifying colour into other dimensions. The Evidence photos speak for themselves.
Love of my life.

"One of my favorite photographers on Flickr, ~Evidence~ has a unique ability to grab your attention with his images. You can never be sure what to expect next, but you know it will always be full of colour and life.

"I've been a huge fan of ~Evidence~'s work for quite some time.
He is a master at finding the beauty in abandoned spaces. His work with light and colour is truly awe inspiring!!
Yet he also captures nature shots with a beautiful tenderness.
Thanks for sharing your beautiful images, ~E."

he creates immoral images especially on decays,
definitely one of the best!"

"~EvidencE~ is the foremost Flickr master when it comes to capturing the beauty of decay. His photos have always been a source of fascination for me. Not only is his grasp of beauty in decay superb, his style is established very well.
Of course, his mastery of photography as art extends to everything else he shoots as well.
Keep up the good work ~EvidencE~!
It's always a treat when he posts up another image."

"this is long overdue as ~EvidencE~ has been a source of fascination once I found his photo stream. I always want to see his work...his images strike a cord in me and I hold his work up to the finest you will run across in flickr. Unique, provocative and stunning are some of the words that come to mind but if you explore his work you will come up with other words that define his style. Brilliant work my friend!"

"~EvidencE~ is an evidence of a great photographer that I've came across. One of the best artist whose works have been really inspirational. I found myself trying to be better each time visiting his streams. And I am definitely glad to have the chance to know him through his works."

"there are times when i think i am doing ok as a photographer. i am purely amature, but happy with the occasional shot or two. and then i visit mike's stream and i realize that in a hundred lifetimes, i would still struggle to do with a camera what he does.
thank you for sharing your work with us. even from a thousand miles away, i learn so much from your images. and i learn that i need to learn so much more!
7th December, 2007
I am very inspired by your work, spectacular HDRs and pictures of landscapes gives me a feel as if I am in a dreamland. You've got an amazing talent and skills. Keep up the good work, I wish you all the best.

You make first-class pictures.
The nature pictures have a lot of feeling.
And your image processing is first-class.
I am always impressed if I look at your pictures.

"The HDR photos are of the finest.
Joy makes this one to look at photos."
5th August, 2007
I can't say any words now,because I was stunning by your HDR works after I saw all of your pics.
I never see these amazing jobs before,thanks for sharing!
You're an artist.
My english is not so well,but I really love your photos!

"~EvidencE~ combines a good feeling for the light situation with a perfect feeling for composition. His hyper realistic HDR photo's strike me and I like the typical objects and environments that he again and again is able to find. Great work!!"
18th June, 2007
" Insane HDR work. Industrial strength genius on heavy metal visuals. Color that explodes off the page. Bends light as if he were made out of fiber optics. Evidence can go from the most sublime light streams to grit that can peel your skin off. Always experimenting, always amazing me with his style and grace.
You are teaching us without teaching. A high honor indeed.

"~EvidencE~ has a lot of mystery and magic about him! which shows in his work, he has a talented eye for photography and a great imagination for ideas, he's one amongst a few that I watch regularly as his HDR work is one of the best around.
He inspires, he thrills and he amazes a wide audience with his talents, he can transform and manipulate anything from obscure to everyday objects into a photographic masterpiece.
Your work is a pleasure to see my friend."

"~EvidencE~'s photography and visual art makes me wonder if he really lives in this world, or some awesome parallel universe. I think I probably stare at his photos more than anyone else's.
