"Kees and I share an understanding of the fascination of the drop. I am always amazed by his refractions and freeze-frame falling water. Along with many, may other flickrites, I hold his work in high regard and look forward to the next creation.
Congratulations on a fine stream, Kees. Thanks for bringing the beauty!"

When I am in Philips International B.V. I have not have a chance to meet him. Only on www.flickr.com ; I get to know him by his great Master Pieces.
I vow to say that his is a great Nature imaging artist , his works are superb if not outstanding. His supportive; positive attitude & loving kindness are worth many to learn online.
You are encourage to visit him more often to discover even more.....
You are great my friend......"

"You have great sense of color.
A true artist."

"all of keesssss' images have this incredible amount of vibrant colors. The use of a bright red/orange seems to be a repeating theme in these pictures and i believe it works quite well. Not only do the pictures have a great amount of composition, but they are just as vibrant with content!"

"Kees is a true photographer, not just some guy with a camera.
His images are a delight to me, not just because they are skillfully conceived and beautifully crafted, but because they illustrate his view of the world....and that is the true art of the photographer.
I value his generous encouragement, and sincerely respect and admire the unique eye of this talented independent thinker."
