    "Cher, è grande, vengo spessissimo a guardare le sue foto.
    Ogni commento può risultare banale per descrivere le sue immagini mi basta ogni tanto tornare a vedere il suo album, sicuramente trovero idee, sensazioni, emozioni e colori per riempirmi la giornata.
    Grazie di dividerle con tutti!"

    LLP (Recuperating... Extended Away) says:

    "A true artist's measure lies in his or her ability to capture emotions in his/her work that impact and move the viewers of his creations.
    While a painter, poet or writer have the luxury of starting with a tabula rasa, a clean slate to mold as he/she wishes, a photographer has to make do with what's in front of him/her, making this all the more difficult.
    Most photos are just that, photos not creations. a mostly imperfect replica of an already created creation.
    However, a few people come along that can elevate photography to a new level. They capture those elusive emotions, moving their viewer and transcending replication. Thus, then, they create art.
    Cher Ferroggiaro is among this elite few who do not just take photos, they create artwork through them.
    Cher, you move me with your creations and I feel very privileged by being able to indulge myself in your work.
    You have my heartfelt thanks for doing what you do and for sharing it."

    Her images are unique and full of love. Cher is one of the kindest people you will meet online and I love her lovely personality!
    ... e anche se non ci scriviamo spesso, sei sempre nei miei pensieri!

    "E' vero, "La bellezza è negli occhi di chi guarda" e scorrendo lo stream di Cherilyn Ferroggiaro ci rendiamo conto che la riprova di questo aforisma lo scopriamo guardando le sue fotografie
    che rivelano la sua bellezza interiore (quella esteriore si può vedere dai suoi autoritratti).
    Cher possiede un occhio che riesce sempre a cogliere il momento giusto, con una tecnica invidiabile, con gusto, con dolcezza, con un cuore colmo di vero sentimento che traspare nei suoi scatti, nelle sue didascalie, nei suoi commenti e ti fa sentire onorato di avere la sua amicizia.
    Grazie Cher per quello che sei e per le foto che condividi con noi."

    "Mi sono accorto tardi dell'incredibile quantità e qualità degli scatti di Colpo di fulmine... le sue foto sono di un'incredibile bellezza e naturalezza ma al tempo stesso mi domando se mai io riuscirò a fare foto tanto belle. Credevo di aver raggiunto un buon livello di esperienza ma dopo aver visto attentamente questa stream credo che io abbia un mondo da imparare da Colpo di fulmine..sicuramente il suo è un talento naturale..sono rimasto davvero senza parole ed è difficile non aggiungere ai favorite quasi tutti i suoi scatti...."

    "Cher is a beautiful soul, person inside/out, and best friend ever! Her photography manifests passion to the deepest depth. Each shot captures both body and soul and brings everything to life. What she sets out to do she achieves and her accomplishments are many. A blessing it is to have her in your life, and I thank God she is in mine! With all my heart I love her, and for all time by her side is where I position myself. Love your best friend, Dawn"
