She is an inspiration to me and a wonderful flickr friend."

    "Nancy has been a friend for over 16 months ..
    Her progress in her light shots and photoshop
    have been quick and pleasing .
    Her use of color is quite yummy for want of a better word .
    A nice person to hang out with , she has a dry
    and somewhat peculiar wit that enchants and delights .
    She is my BUD , What can I say ???
    Oh yeah her somewhat famous flower shots are of the highest caliber in depth , color and overall style.,!!
    She IS THE Buttersweet !!!"

    Graphic Warrior says:

    "I was afforded the opportunity to visit the Slovakia Embassy earlier this year and during my visit I witness the most incredible display of talent by six gifted young pianists. Their renditions of Chopin , Etude, Op 25, No 12 c minor, L.v. Beethoven, Sonata, Op. 13, III mov. In c moll, Liszt, Hungarian Rhapsody, No.2 in cis moll, to name a few, had me both struck with amazement and admiration. Your display of talent has had the same affect on me, you are definitely in a class of your own...sincerely, graphic warrior, p.s. - you give credit to being born in the year of the tiger :-)"

    "imho, buttersweet is one of the more talented people on flickr; her stunning creations with the swirl filter cannot be topped! she's also very kind and encouraging to newbies (approx. 2 months for me), leaving detailed and thoughful comments....

    it's easy to understand why half of the flickr population loves her! and she's generous with invites into her fave groups....

    we need more "buttersweet's" in this world!! seriously...."

    "I've been drawn to buttersweet's dahlia photos due to my strong impression that, among the thousands/millions of dahlia photos there Must be on flickr, hers stand out in a particular way.. exemplified by her straightforward unpretentious exploration of the blossoms themselves combined with a characteristic sense of movement and playing within the frame-space.. she gives the blossoms full room to move and breathe even when closing in on a fine detail or just one of her color 'crushes'. It's simply seeing, yes, but it is also following what the flowers show her, in a way.

    That, for me, anyway, is one of the rare top talents anyone has in any art.

    I'm hoping her work maintains those qualities even as she expresses other qualities along her way.

    O Would that I could have expressed all that as simply and as powerfully as she photographs! Or maybe I can .. Nancy, I'm swept by the way you show us the sweep of your beloved dahlias. Thank You."
