"You're one in a million of my favorite photographer. You got high imagination in each you done! Your creativity need to get serious attention from photo lovers out there.

"Every single one of Bhaskar's photos makes me say "why didn't I think of that", he has an unbelievable ability to find a photo where others see nothing. His stream never fails to put a smile on my face, only a photographer such as Bhaskar could see such cute positivity in every situation, and what's most interesting to me is the hands on approach which is so refreshing in these times of post processing, who else would physically staple 2 halves of an apple together, so on attention to detail alone I commend you Bhaskar, you are truly a wonderful photographer with an enviable eye""

Nick Losacco says:
"Bhaskar Dutta's photography is incredibly pleasing to the eye, and eye catching. The simplistic style and modern vision he has bursts through his photos with vibrance. Bhaskar can see the simplest thing, that is normally passed without regard in everyday life and make it beautiful."

"Bhaskar's work is really premium work. He develops really interesting ideas and executes them very well. In fact, he plans and shoots with such precision that it is rare to find that type of dedication to a concept that he shows.
A quick look at his photostream will leave no doubt that he loves photography and expresses himself very well through this art.
I find his work inspirational to my own work and hope to continue seeing more great work from him in the future."
2nd February, 2012
"Your photos are something special. Each photo is full of creativity and technical ability.
Definitely a photographer to take as an example !"
