I enjoy them a lot and love the way you capture the colour of the moment, your island and eachtime I wish I could stroll along those beautiful places. Next to Babasteve you're my favourite, you make me dream, and he brings me back to reality and hence there is balance (;)"

    "When I look at Ahmed's photographs, I'm continually struck by what I feel and that would be "joy." Are they beautiful? Without question and stunningly so but this beauty transcends scenery. It's not just a "pretty picture" or "beauty shot" but something far greater and goes directly to the heart of the matter, our distinct humanity. To show an essence of the human spirit is a special ability and one which he has. They are photographs that one doesn't just see with their eyes but also feel with their heart. They are just great!"

    "Ahmed manages to capture the beauty of life in every picture that you will find here. You will never find a photograph that isn't beautiful and inspiring. New photos are added consistently, and you can always expect that they will be just as amazing as all the others he has taken.

    You will not find many other photographers who have the inspiration that Ahmed permeates throughout each and every one of his unique works."

    "How does he do it? Do amazing opportunities pop up wherever he is? Or does he actively seek them out? Most likely, he has the eye to appreciate the best photos wherever he is. However he does it, the results are amazing."

    "You won’t find any mediocre, random snapshot dumps here. Every offering is thoughtfully composed and labeled and then presented in a small, satisfying, GLORIOUS, daily collection. It’s why so many of us are captivated by, if not totally addicted to, Ahmed’s photostream."

    "I cannot believe I'm the first person who writes a testimonial for Ahmed!
    His photostream is one of the few on wich I discover new favorites EVERY time I take a visit.

    Ahmed has an outstanding way of photographing the joy of everyday life. His photo's are sparkling and vibrant...
    Everybody in front of his lens seems to enjoy his attention. There is some real, positive interaction going between the subjects and the photographer.

    His colours are unbeatable! A sunset in flames, a bright green boat in emerald waters.... Children playing in the warm late afternoon sun....
    I never even knew some of "his colours" existed! Simply stunning.

    Combine this all with an intriguing set of "silhouette pictures" and you get an irresistible, diverse stream.

    Thanks for showing me your unique view on your beautiful, exotic world!
