    "Diana is one of the most creative photographers I've seen on Flickr in all the years I've been on here. She finds a way to challenge your preconceptions of beauty, by pushing the limits to where you are forced to redefine the word in order to fit her imagery into your definition! Such bold, fearless work by such a stunningly talented person is so rare. If there was a book of this work to buy, I would give it to all my friends as a gift! Thank you for your work, Diana!"

    "Diana takes femininity to a new level with her art. She really perfects her crops, compositions, lighting, and I love looking at her black and white images (which, monochromes I am typically critical of!). She really exemplifies a woman behind the lens. She has a great fashion sense and a sensual style to her images. I love keeping up with her work and she truly blows me away as an artist.

    "Just from a quick glance at her stream, I could tell that Diana had talent. I had already seen some of Diana's modeling in Brooke Shaden's work, and then discovered Diana's own stream, and was immediately amazed. Its one thing to be photographed by another person and an entirely different thing to photograph yourself, but Diana does this flawlessly. But besides that, her other work is gorgeous. Ive already gone through her stream several times and each time found something else that I have fallen in love with."

    "Diana, you are incredible. I know that sounds like an empty compliment, but trust me it is true. I have fallen in love with your photos. I find them fresh and unique and timeless and ripe with symbolism and mystery. Your stream is one of my favorites to visit because I know that I am going to find something special every time. I can come back again and again and I am never disappointed, I always find something new. That is really a special talent, to be able to pack so much into one photo that the viewer couldn't possibly see all that is in the frame with one viewing. But you do it, and it is magical to watch."

    "I've been a fan of Diana's art work since a year ago, I still remember the first time I saw her stream, I was totally blown away, and couldn't believe a girl at her age created those breathtaking pictures. During the past one year, I can't remember how many times I've gone through her stream over and over again. Her pictures are beautiful, well-executed, expressive; and she has definitely one of the strongest conceptual work on flickr. Now she started 365, I can't wait to see what she will do for her journey. I'll always keep my eyes on her work."

Diana obviously puts a considerable amount of time and thought into her shots and the result is extraordinary.

    "Diana is one of those young talented artist that amazes me; One that has the natural ability to evoke such great emotion beyond her years. Her photo creations are her honest expressions and with her skills in lighting, composing, modeling and post editing makes her images some of the most impressive and powerful bodies of work that rivals the most experienced artists.

    Diana has a promising future in art and photography and is someone to watch for...full of vision and creativity, modest, determined, kind and sometimes mysterious but always true to herself and her work.

    Definitely a Flickr treasure to explore!!!"

    "Diana Pinto i gave me one of those rare experiences in the world of online art and photogrpahy where you are desperately searching for something new to inspire you....and all of a sudden there she is. It really made my day finding her work. I've visited her gallery so many times just to look at the same work over and over. I love how she doesn't follow the crowd. Her work is unique and it is beautiful and appears effortless. Her concepts are just fantastic...simple yet they work so perfectly.

    Not only is her work amazing but after reading her profile i can tell that she is a lovely, sweet girl with tons of passion and energy. If she is this good as a teenager then all i can say is that the world better watch out! This girl has talent and knows how to use it!"

    "Looking through her gallery is like looking through a scrapbook of all the most creative pieces seen on Flickr. She's exceedingly original, and her work is done nearly flawlessly. She is so good at communicating her emotions that often I feel as though I can sense exactly what she was thinking when she was creating one of her beautiful masterpieces. Sometimes I wonder how there's anything left of her after she's released all her emotions into her work. She's quite a beautiful character, not only in her physical self, but in her personality as well.

    Edit: It seems that Flickr as a whole has lost it's obsession with your stream. Those who are of the few who have remained to support your photography have been rewarded greatly. I've gotten to know a lot of people on Flickr, some who have become my good friends. But I must say, out of all the people I've met here, you are certainly the one who I would call my "best Flickr friend." Love ya, hun."

Much of her art work pulls out inner feelings and hidden secrets inside of me that I have no courage to show, and perhaps makes me feel as though im not alone. Im very impressed and inspired by Diana, and I know her talents can and WILL take her far.

    "An artist, not a photographer. She uses her camera as a canvas and herslef/others as the paint. Diana Pinto manages to produce material that causes or influences an emotion; she knows what she wants her viewers to feel. Like a good suspense movie, a director knows what angle to best film the scene in order to produce suspense, like a good comedy movie a script writer knows what lines to use and make the audience laugh. Well, Diana knows what photograph to make so everyone else feels that moment. A photograph catches a scene, a significant moment, and a feeling. Although we all interpret it differently, in the end we know exactly what she was feeling, so we know just what she wants to convey."
