Sadly I've had less time for Flickr of late, hopefully I'll get back into the swing of it soon and pay more attention to my contact's work, including yours. All the best and keep up the great work nevertheless!

    "I agree with all the other testimonials listed here. cresk's photos are amazing and I love checking for new pictures. The imagination and perspective from each shot as well as the use of colours and contrast is so creative. I wish I had a fraction of the talent he does. ;)"

    "We don't know each other, and problably we ever won't.

    I'm just an humble guy who is absolutely overwhlemed by your Flickr's galley, and I had the need of personally thank you for this enjoyment. I can guess this message is nothing new for you, but I couldn't leave this chance of write these words.

    Seeing at your photos one by one was a pleasure, better than sleep -and I enjoy it a lot too :) - They are one of the best things I've ever saw, and I'm sure I've seen tons of photographs, designs and graphics things of any kind.

    Beyond the photographic quality, your work gave me awesome feelings. Yeah, the PS editting is great and that, but there is something beyond. I was able to feel what the photo was showing merged with an unique photographic style, and that truly rocks.

    The high-res images enhanced them a lot, and the smart signature is great to save these masterpices. Very useful!

    All the best from Spain.

    "Gert, aka Cresk, is a true artist at heart and a talented photographer.
    I'm pleased to be able to call him a friend.
    Gert is a great observer and an amazing images composer. I much appreciate all the technical details he gives in the descriptions of his splendid shots. He would be a great teacher as he has great technical skills in facts.
    The constant quality of work that Gert posts on flickr is simply amazing. I admire his awareness of the image in the moment and the great eye.
    He is one of the people I look forward to hearing from, there is very often something to learn as he is a precious flickr member. I respect his constructive input since I know that it comes from an expert.
    Gert is also very friendly and has helped me to create the logos of all my three pools. He was willing to take his time to help me, even when he was extremely busy. Something I cannot thank him enough for.
    I always find myself looking forward to admire his next stunning artistic work."

Just look at his creations, the spectrum of colors he can display is simply amazing! A truly talented artist, and its a privilege to be one of his contacts. All the best, Daniel."
