    "I am Ellen's biggest fan.

    I don't know how to begin to describe my amazement on Ellen's photos. I mean the colours, the clarity, the amazing point of view and oh the list just goes on and on. I could just favs them all! She's an official supplier for my desktop wallpaper. Her photo's take turn on filling up my desktop, I just can't get enough of them.

    Personally, Ellen is such an wonderful friend. I don't know how many years have I known her on Flickr but she's always been there. Her visits and comments are very much awaited by me :D

    You're an amazing person Ellen :)"

    "Er zijn maar weinig mensen van wie ik er zelf naar uitzie dat ze op vakantie gaan. Dit is wel het geval bij Ellen. Haar fotoreportages van haar vakanties zijn indrukwekkend. Iedere keer dat je denkt dit was de laatste weet ze ons opnieuw te verrassen met weer iets mooiers. Haar foto’s van Italië en Noorwegen zijn voor mij een groot voorbeeld. Ik wens jou en ons nog veel van zulke vakanties toe!"

    "It wasn't hard to zero in on Ellen's images. They stand high above the usual photographs. This woman has an incredible eye. I have used her images in magazine ads, and she is not only a professional, but is a pleasure to communicate with. She knows exactly when to go black and white, selective coloring, or all out saturation. Her passion for the shutter is proved time after time on her Flickr pages. I can get lost in her images for hours. Namaste, Ellen!"

    "I've been watching Ellen's photos for more than 2 years. Can't believe until now I didn't write a testimonial for her. When I checked her profile again today, I finally realize I should write something down.

    Ellen, is one of my favorite photographers on and one of the greatest female photographers on I dare to say. From the very beginning I visited her photostream, I could barely believe my eyes coz almost each photo she uploaded here is so beautiful and amazing! I just couldn't help adding almost every one of her photos here as a fave. Later on, I got used to that. That's Ellen, a photographer with great eye and excellent skill and lives under the heaven.

    "Ellen lays before us a regular feast of black and white images that capture the eye and the imagination. With a love of beauty she shares her joy with us by revealing the places that have touched her heart and soul, and so touches and moves each and everyone of us who see her shots.
    Thank you for being here Ellen.

    Since January 2005 Ellen has become my bestest flickr friend and I look forward to the day when she is no longer a virtual person or a voice on the end of the phone. A day when she can show me how to take a better shot and meet oor cats!"

    "I have been a member of flickr for a very short time and one of the first visits I made was to the "heavenuphere" site. Totally enthralled, Ellen is an amazing photographer. Ellen has such an eye for photography. I only wish I could "see" in same way Ellen does.The images that come from within Ellen's P&S camera knock my socks off. Ellen is loved by all I am sure and not forgetting Ellen's famous cat..a great team.
    Thanks Ellen for you kind words and being a contact has made my day

    "Ellen is flat out one of the most talented photographers i've met on flickr. Her ability to digitally capture the essence of beauty in landscapes, nature, architecture, and people keeps me coming back to her stream for more. And I'm never disappointed; just look through her stream and you'll see that each picture tells a story, each with such incredible composition instinct and vivid detail (especially her B&Ws). And she does all this with a p&s camera; that's real talent. Keep it up Ellen, we're all looking forward to the next one!"

    "Ellen has a love affair.... with her camera. And it shows! Her images show that passion and the great care she takes in making the photo's and in presenting them in her photo stream and sets.
    Browsing through her sets is one of my favourite pastimes."

    thankful secretary says:

    "I have not been a member here at Flickr for all that long, but Ellen's work was among the first I noticed. She has a unique eye for detail and composition and she doesn't mind to get down in the dirt to make that shot perfect in her eyes.
    Her photos make most people view them with amazement and her modesty and nice comment to other people's pictures show the great person she must be.
    Unintentionally she has raised the bar for the quality of non professional photographers like her and she has gathered a large group of fans, waiting for her next picture to be uploaded."

    "Ellen has an eye for making the ordinary, extraordinary. Her landscape shots are remarkable and some of my favorites. The way in which she composes her shots teaches me to see my surroundings in a different way each time I look through the lens."
