"Sylvan is Master Elrond in disguise...nobody knows this so don't tell anyone! Sylvan's images are far and above the ordinary, far and above the general averga scene! He works magic with the lens and takes you deep into Middle Earth, sometimes probably not intentionally!
Also, Sylvan as a great friend. He is warm and sweet and funny, and will make you laugh! He has these insane blue neon eyes that see right through you LOL...even when he's not looking!
HOOOOOOOWDY HOOOOOOOOOO Sylvan, thank you for sharing your amazing talent and beautiful world with us and thank you for being such an awesome friend! xxxxx"

"Some of the most beautiful nature shots I have seen can be found right here in Sylvan's little corner of the world. Gorgeous high quality photography! I am always impressed with his knowledge of plant and animal IDs. Wonderful sense of humor too! Take a few minutes to enjoy his beautiful world!
You are a wonderful and charming gentleman, Sylvan! Thank you so much for your daily dose of spectacular beauty, friendship and laughter. So nice to have such a wonderful friend on flickr! xoxox"

"Sylvain follow's with so much enthousiasm and power his agenda, if you take the time to analyse his creations and work, you can do only one thing : admire.
A good lesson for us : find here a human beeing and nature and HiTech in a fine and dedicated unity"
