    "Amy's work is absolutely phenomenal. She is so talented at such a young age, I can't even imagine what her photos will be like later on. Her photos are so vibrant and full of life. Also, her use of light is perfect and I couldn't imagine flickr without her beautiful photography. This is my first testimonial I've written for someone and I'm glad it was for you!

    "Pure brilliance and awesomeness.

    Amy's photographs are full of stories, emotions and feelings.
    I am ever so happy to have been added as a contact by you,
    You are one of the very few that actually bring meaning to their photographs.

    The mixture of warm lighting, light texture and your beautiful face is what I admire the most out of your photos.

    My testimonial may not have much of an effect to you simply because I am an amateur,
    but I felt the need to write one as you have stunned my mind a lot of times since I've seen your stream.

    You are an amazing photographer and I bet a lot of people have told you that already.

    God Bless you always :)"

    "I've followed your work for a while now, and I am never not impressed. You have an incredible ability to capture light and colour in ways that not many photographers can. Your photos are full of tone and emotion. I eternally admire your patience and perseverance at completing your 365, I could never do what you did. Your work seems ethereal, dreamy and abstract, your ideas are so unique! Your choice of pose and subject are never cliché or boring. Your editing process adds such beauty to already beautiful photos. Goodness, I could compliment your work for hours and hours my dear. You are extremely talented, I would kill for an ounce of your talent. Your photostream is by far the best I have seen on flickr, ever."

    To be honest, I am in love with her artwork as well - they're all really beautiful. Amy is a wonderfully artistic person and I'll bet on it that she'll be famous for her hard work one day.

    "I added you as a contact long time ago, but honestly I've never followed your works as I should. Today I was sitting in front of my latop doing nothing and I decided to look your stream, I immediatly fell in love with it.
    I loved how you used sunlight and natural light, and your potraits looks so delicate so fragile.
    But the thing I loved most is the pale skin, I think it added so much to the photos.
    So, I know it's not a perfect testimonial but I don't know what else can I say, your whole 365 project is just perfect, and your other works as well. So, from now I'm gonna watch your stream more often than I did =)
    It would be amazing if we can talk sometimes, I like chatting to young flickers/photographers.
    Hope you'll have a happy new year =)

    "This testimonial is so long overdue it's quite insane, the words just never seemed to come right. When I first found you I was I was captivated by your use of light and the brightness and optimism in your pictures, but just a while ago you tried at a different "genre" of photography, and I was in awe. Your photostream became one of those that consistently "wows" and baffles me everytime I view it instead of the typical streams that impact me only briefly. Your photography has turned from marvelous into phenominal; you're truly gifted. Each of your new uploads amazes me at a different level; you can definitely tell exactly who you are through your photography, which is fabulous and the crazy thing is you're only going to get better. You inspire me, Amy.

    As I walked on by.
    She could see from my face that I was flying high,
    And I don't think that I'll see her again,
    But we shared a moment that will last 'til the end.

    oh yes, i am writing you a testemonial.
    at about a week ago, I thought you were the greatest flickrite in all of flickr until you came out with your 'internal' idea.
    the first thing i did was swore at how great it was. yeah, i ran all around the house showing my family what an amazing photo you did with the veins, and then again with the skeleton hand.

    i couldn't believe that we had actually made conversation.
    you are great, truly truly great, and i can see you improving with every picture you post.

    not only are you a creative AND artistic, you are what everybody wants: beautiful. :D

    this 365 will help you find yourself, and i can imagine you becoming 20x better than you are now (which is pretty crazy). at the end of this amazing journey i will see you with your last picture of the year, and it's going to go out with a bang. it will be front page explored most likely, and i'm going to swear my head off. :D *(and i'll be pretty damn jealous)

People only write negative things because they're jealous. Jealous that everything you touch happens to turn to gold (metaphorically of course!) =)

    I've been wanting to write you a testimonial for a while but I wanted to really get to know your style. I can see your starting to diversify your photos a bit more, which is great, but never forget the style that matters the most to you, because that's the style we love you for as well.

    "amy is amazing. you've only recently been in my contacts, but you have become one of my favorite photographers here on flickr. Every time you upload, I see you improving every step of the way. Keep going, Amy, you have so much potential at such a young age. When you hit that 365/365, you will be beyond amazing."
