    "I have been a big fan for a long time. Dan's images tell stories. They make you keep coming back for more. Not really sure how he does it, but he always makes the simplest subject look so beautiful. His use of colour, DOF, composition and post processing are always perfect. Dan is definitely one of the best in Flickr."

    "“To me, photography is an art of observation. It's about finding something interesting in an ordinary place... I've found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.”
    ~~Elliott Erwitt. This is one of my favorite quotes about photography and I believe Dan could do just that. The way he sees beauties in ordinary places and the way he presents them to us that make him a wonderful and a very special photographer. There is no one who comes here on his stream, that doesn't walk way with an awe struck feeling for each photo he posts here. I speak for myself and I am sure many of you share the same feelings...I'm so honored to have "met" him here on Flickrland and have the pleasure getting to know him. His talents and creativity are boundless. Each one of his photos tells you a beautiful story that takes you breath away...Love how he titles his images..simple, intimate, touching yet very meaningful and intriguing. The light and colors in each of his images are so magic, divine and enchanting sometimes you wonder if he lives in the same world as we do? :P
    Always looking forward to his visits as he is always so supportive of his contacts work and always willing to give genuine, encouraging words and helpful advices. Thank you Dan for being such a dear friend and thank you for inspiring me every day! xox"

    "Dan is one of my favorite Flickr contacts. And this testimonial is LONG overdue! His creative use of color and his incredible manipulation of the macro lens never cease to amaze me. The titles of his shots are both intimate and intriguing. As well as providing so much visual pleasure, Dan is always ready to give appreciative, encouraging comments and helpful advice. Thanks for being such a wonderful Flickr contact, Dan. I love your beautiful work!"

    "In Durango99 one will find a unique combination of technician and artist. Having been friends with him for over ten years (9 that he knew about) I can say it's not common to find someone with his absolute command and interest in the technical who lets it go and finds the beauty in simplicity.

    I also love that his "editing" is relegated to Picasa, and thus something someone like me has a chance of achieving with practice and help. Help he's always more than happy to provide.

    "Dan ...

    is the one of the best guy
    and an inspiring photographer
    you can ever find and meet
    on flickr.

    He has a set called .:10:.

    He describes it as:

    "these shots have been in some way
    or another a milestone in my photo
    experience...(personal 10 out of 10's)"

    Now, if you want to see some amazing
    shots and when I say Dan is inspiring
    photographer, then you need to check
    out this set of pictures.


    And then you will definitely want to see
    more of his work. Well, his photostream
    open for you to visit.

    You will not be sorry but be glad.

    I also like to see him commenting
    on my pictures. Because he is real
    and really genuine person.

    Wishing all the best
    for the rest of his life

    Greetings from New York City"

    In the time I've regularly been browsing Dan's photostream I have come to see items that are more or less ignored in a new light - literally! Thank-you Dan for adding life and light to our Flickr experience!"

    "This testimonial is so long overdue it is not funny..... Dan AKA Durango99 has got one of the most inspiring streams that I have seen on Flickr, his artistic ability and the ability to make something look so special from something as plain as a leaf or tree is rather remarkable. I can also say that Dan is very generous with his knowledge and has spent many hours with me on Gmail Chat while I ask question after question !! - Dan - I am very proud to call you a true Blue Flickr Mate - Hope one day we get the change to meet and exchange detail in person. Keep inspiring people mate !"

    "Honestly? I was not into macro at all. Flower shots? Mwah, usually they do not do it for me. At least so I thought. Durango99 made me look at it in a totally different manner. Honestly? It were HIS pictures that made me bought a macro lens (he didn't even know, until now). Honestly? I have no clue how he creates his wonderful, unique world. Everything he does shows that behind it is a creative, intelligent, very delicate and joybringing mind. I am really, deep from the heart completely impressed with his work. It really is a joy to wonder through his work and i strongly advice anyone to have a good look at it. It's truly rewarding. Durango99, in short; i'm a fan. Bigtime!"

    "I am new to flickr, so have "known" durango99 and his work only since very recently. But I am compelled to write a testimonial and here's why. I have him on my contact list and whenever I open up the page of latest pics from the contacts, his pics literally stand out! His simplistic style is awesome and his composition, colors, and thoughts are beautiful. He is also so ready to help that it is humbling.

    Wishing you the very best, durango99!"
