I am a naturalist & photography goes hand in hand. I hope that the images of nature's beauty which I attempt to restore will affect the viewer the same way it affects me as I capture that fleeting moment in nature. And yes very lucky for having High Altitude unspoiled valleys, highest mountains, glaciated lakes and untouched wilderness in Pakistan.

"M Atif is one of the leading exponents of landscape photography on Flickr. Each one of his images showcases the amazing beauty of his home Pakistan that I would think few knew existed. Each image is carefully crafted and composed to capture the optimum light, color and feel of each location. This is a collection that is screaming for publication!"

Sebastian (sibbiblue) says:
"Atif is showing a very profound understanding of nature and photography. As he says, "this is going hand in hand", you can see in every single image, how he is composing a story told by his photography. A story about a country of pure beauty. Very seldom you will be able to find photographer around the world who will be able to do something similar."

"Most of you have describe the talent Atif show in his gallery, i start looking at his gallery and i feel astonished when i went photo by photo, i consider landscape in a complete different way what Atif show us, i guess he is one of the best photographers i ever seen on Flickr.
He knows the light, the equipment and extract the best from it, i have to consider another way of looking at landscape after knowing his work"

" I found Atif on flickr while I was visiting the top explore images . His works are truly outstanding and world class. I am sure NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC would be pleased to publish a special feature on 'Beautiful Places in Pakistan' based on his wonderful works. I would like to see this world through the eyes of Atif once again . ...I feel enriched having found him on flickr... He is a wonderful artist who executes his works with his camera, and not the usual tools like paint and brush, using the vast Canvas of Nature and capturing the finest of ever changing colors in the lap of Nature."

"Atif is an incredible photographer, never failing to impress and inspire me. Without a doubt he is one of the most phenomenal and gifted photographers I've seen on flickr, or anywhere. Atif's images are breathtaking, beautiful and delightful. His use of lighting, color, framing and contrasts shines through stunningly in every one of his images. I’ve learned much about Atif's spectacular Pakistan and area from his wonderful images and descriptions. He hikes to some truly remarkable and sensational regions and captures the essence and magic of their beauty masterfully.
Please check out Atif's exceptional photostream for yourself. You will be glad you did!
Thank you good friend for sharing your friendship and your stunning images. Keep up the great works Atif!""

"I don't know this guy in person but I know his work and I must say that it's always a pleasure to watch a picture taken by this photographer. I don't know for how long he started to use a camera but I know that I have many things and way many years of practice to be as good as Atif. Keep showing us the beauty of your country, Atif! It's always impressive! Cheers!"

"An amazing photographer in an amazing land. Pakistan is one of those places where it's hard to get a bad photo and yet I would say Atif's images are not just good but superb! It's easy to take a good photo of a great landscape and difficult to take a great photo of a mediocre landscape. And then there's taking a great photo of a great landscape and WOW! Such are the images of Atif. In most images it is not only the amazing landscape and composition but the incredible light in the image. Makes me reminisce about my years as a guide there. Thanks Atif. I look forward to more images."

CHRISTENSEN PHOTOGRAPHY says:
"Atif is the Ansel Adams of Pakistan!
That is a grandiose label to wear. But anyone who has travelled through Atif's photostream know what I mean and must agree. Atif achieves in all his photographs a perfectly balanced exposure, a stunning detail level, razor sharpness where it's needed; poetic softness where it's suitable.
No matter if Atif portrays the freezing harshness of the mountain summits or the golden beauty of a sunny valley he always captures and conveys the grandeur of nature in a way that really takes you there. His photographs have an extremely strong presence.
Atif is a great photographer and a big ambassador of Pakistan."

scott masterton says:
"It's not often that I come across a photographer with stream as impressive as this. It blew me away from the first shot and didn't let up. One of the most impressive streams I have come across in a long time, perhaps even the most impressive. A mastery of light beyond impressive. You have made your landscapes and your country look like places that one might imagine would only be found in dreams. Impressive and inspirational work. I look forward to seeing more of your work."

Khalid Khan Photography says:
"It’s a true pleasure to write a testimonial for Atif Saeed. The discovery of Atif’s photography is definitely one of my personal highlights in Flickr and his photostream has become a great source of inspiration for me. He is one of the best Pakistani landscape photographers that I have seen to date. Each photo that he posts makes me sit back and study it in detail, and the question that always comes to mind is..."how does he do it?" An amazingly talented photographer and artist....Watch closely and you will learn alot from him ;)"
