    "What can I say about Carl that hasn't been said before?
    He's a great photo pal and often reflects those 'hard to share' emotions in his images and words that us mere mortals find so hard to do!
    Thanks Carl, keep at it and stay with us!"

    I have only recently been a contact of Carl's and
    I love his bird pictures and his great captures of light.
    His enthusiasm is great and I appreciate his visits and support.

    Somerset look like a fantastic place that I will have to visit sometime.

    Keep up the great work Carl.

    "I always look forward to Carl's photos as they are always beautiful and varied. Every photo is so well composed and colourful. I particularly like the wildlife and poppies, but they are all superb.

    It is obvious from Carl's photostream that he sees beauty all around him. Someone said I had rose tinted spectacles once. I do not think it was supposed to be a compliment but I am so pleased that I have them. I can see Carl has a pair too.

    Carl is a super Flickr friend, who always gives thoughtful constructive comments on photos. It is a pleasure to have 'met' him on Flickr.

    Keep taking and uploading those lovely photos Carl.

    Fond Regards

    "Carl is a wonderful photographer. I fell in love with his work from the first time I saw it. I still recall it's one of his beautiful poppy flowers collection. After that day, I have tried to visit all of his posts as they all brighten up my day...

    I also love the way he looks at the world. Very small usual things can look very beautiful through his lens.

    Thank you for sharing those beautiful images which always make me smile. Also, thanks for being a good friend.

    "I have come to know and love viewing Carls photos, his passion and love of Photography shows through in the sheer quality of his work giving other lesser souls something to aspire to. About a year ago now i wrote to Carl and ask if he would be so kind as to allow me the use of some of his photos to donate with other friends from Flickr and accross the world, to help raise funds for local charity work and support in our community. Some of his work has gone to make greeting cards, that have been sold at various fund raising functions with all 100% of the sale going to the charity, to date thanks to Carl and my other friends who so kindly took it in there hearts to support me in this work, have helped me raise well over £200 in various functions and ALL the funds have been given to various local charities, my contribution, been some of my photos and whatever it costs me to make the greeting cards.

    Thank you Carl, not only for your kind heart, but also for the wonderful Photos that you produce and bring joy and happiness to the many whom get to view them. Bless you my friend.

    Regards John Agrel Smith: Somerset Camera Club."

    "Carl's photostream is an absolute must for anyone who is into quality photography. Not just the quality is perfect, but you can tell that he does indeed have "the eye" for it as obviously, pictures don't take themselves.

    A true pleasure to have in a contact list!"

Carls pictures are filled with so much emotion and feel for the subjects he captures they give pleasure and joy to the viewer. Do yourself a favor and view his world. Thanks Carl, I look forward everyday to your posts."
