    "Goodness, what a beautiful photographer Alita is! She was one of my first flickr friends; it was her self portraits that first drew me in. They are so simple and at the same time filled with so much emotion. And we cannot forget about her nature shots...filled with so much color and life...gorgeous bokehs and macros! I am only one of her many, many fans."

    "Alita’s photostream seem to always make me smile. Most things are already said about her beautiful and inspirational photos. You can see that she has a great understanding for the balance between light and dark as well as color composition. How can you not like a person that keeps her photostream so well organized :)"

    "I couldn’t agree more with everyone else; she is definitely the queen of droplets. Each of her composition is a work of art with sheer excellence. She manages to capture every color and beauty that nature has to offer exceptionally. I’ve always drooled over her droplet macros but then I came across her landscapes & self portraits & believe me they are as incredible as her drop shots. All in all she can photograph anything; & turn it into a master piece.

    I have known Alita for sometime now, & she is a wonderful friend & a great person. I am so glad to have her as a friend =)"

    "Dazzling. Invigorating. Charming and endearing. That is Artlyta.

    Alita. A, as I simply call her, is a gentle soul with a sweet heart. A very talented photographer and a dear friend. Simple yet very captivating, pure, straight-forward and artistic are few words to describe her work. Her photographic style and approach are capable of bringing you to a visual nirvana.

    A wonderful world as seen through her eyes. An inspiring person whose skills and talents never cease to amaze me.

    "Galing" :-)
    Keep it up A."

    "artlyta...always shooting high and achieving great results, she has a kind heart and a heart of a photographer. Her photographs are always full of color and joy. Sometimes her nature photos are so great I feel like I can extend my arm to the monitor and touch them. She has a clear vision and she's on a mission to show us what she sees in everyday life from the smallest speck to the biggest buildings, artlyta has it covered."

    "Have you ever had this wonder-feeling of meeting someone for a moment and you knew you had known each other for ages? That happened when I first stumbled across Alita's stream. She's my sis from the previous life, I am sure! Both of us have so many things in common that it's unwise to list on here. I adore Alita, her wonderful shots, her girly personality, her amazing soul.. I adore all! If you are Alita's contact, be assured Flickr has given you one of its best things."
