    "Tan was born to be a photographer. That is his mission in this life, to unravel the beauties of our mother planet! He is interested only in the true essence of photography! He knows that real beauty comes from the perfect lighting conditions, perfect composing and unmolested by humans magical Nature! So he is prepared to travel anywhere and endure all kind of hardships just to capture the magical moments of mother Nature! I have never seen such passion and respect for beauty! All his photos are priceless gems! He is also a very modest and good hearted person, ready to return comments and his appreciation to all!
    Thanks Tan for all this positive energy and beauty you are offering us!"

    "I look forward to Tan's posts when he returns from travel, which seems to be ALL the time! It's like taking a vacation of your own, only without the costs and jet lag. He is extremely talented and has a wonderful eye that seems to capture the most beautiful vistas. I am always excited to see new photos and new adventures. When I first came across his photostream, I was addicted and just had to visit all the photos of places he had been.
    I also appreciate and welcome Tan's comments. He is a valued friend."

    "I don't know what Chaddock enjoys most.... traveling or photographing! Because self I'm at the same doubt, it's why I understand and enjoy every single amazing shot of his Flickr stream!
    So much talent in one collection, so many beautiful places in one website and so much envy from myself wanting to visit the same places and shooting just the same way he does.
    I high percent of my faves come from this stream.
    Chaddock is a loyal and humble flickr friend, always commenting and giving himself the time to visit my stream. Thanks"

His images are just spectacular and I can travel the world in my armchair by looking thru his photostream! However, what I also appreciate about him is that he takes the time to look at his contact's photographs and make constructive comments. He is certainly a valued Flickr friend!"
