    "Was ich am meisten an seinen Arbeiten bewundere ist seine Handschrift. Jedes Foto ist eigen, hat aber dieses unverwechselbare Handschrift, die nur von Martin stammen kann.
    Ich freue mich jedesmal wenn er neue Fotos veröffentlicht.

    LG Michael"

    "It’s a true pleasure to write a testimonial for Martin. The discovery of Martin’s photography is definitely one of my personal highlights in Flickr and his photostream has become a great source of inspiration for me. Martin speaks a very personal and clear language in his pictures – his compositions are very artistic and precise, clean and balanced and full of elegance and fresh ideas. Especially his treatment of colours and the use of light to create this special personal atmosphere is unique and impressive. I am looking forward to see more of Martin’s work!"

    "Martin ist schon seit Längerem einer der wenigen deutschen Fotografen, die ich zu meinen Vorbildern zähle. So gut wie jedes seiner Fotos überzeugt durch Kreativität, die bei der Komposition anfängt und sich ihren Weg durch das Objektiv in die Nachbearbeitung bahnt. Obwohl seine Landschafts-Motive und diese Kompositionen über einen längeren Zeitraum hinweg kontinuierlich wieder auftauchen, überzeugen viele seiner Fotos durch Martins originellen Post-Processing-Stil und offenbaren sich dem Betrachter z.B. in gefühlsbetonenden Farbzusammensetzungen und Perspektiven. Alles in Allem sind Martins Fotos wirklich auf hohem Niveau -- jedoch muss erwähnt werden, dass man sich nicht nur seine aktuellen Fotos ansehen, sondern auch noch ein paar Seiten weiter hinten nachsehen sollte, dort findet man z.T. wirklich Eindrucksvolles!"

    "Even though Martin doesn't know he has become some kind of a mentor for me. His work is nothing less than applied arts. Martins images reveal the kind of talents it takes to be an exceptional photographer. First talent Emotion: All of the images are linked with a personal (self)experience and inner feeling. I admire the way he achieves to put this into a visual context. Second talent Craftsmanship: Martins images are technically perfect. Optimizing the full digital workflow from camera to postprocessing he manages to add the extra accenct to his message. Third talent Communication: I am a regular reader of Martins blog. He takes a firm and sophisticated stand on the world of digital photography. Always fun to read makes me learn and look at the wide world of ambitious photography. Special Message: Keep inspiring us."

    "I have been gazing full of wonder and awe at Martin's photostream for quite a while now. Each photo that he posts makes me sit back and study it in detail, and the question that always comes to mind is..."how does he do it?" An amazingly talented photographer and artist, covering many facets of the photo-genres. I am honored to call him a Flickrfriend. So just brew a coffee, sit back, and enjoy the world captured through kwerfeldein's amazing eye.."

    "Martin is really an outstanding photographer. Every image he posts completely amazes me. His photos are quite professional and you can never just glance at them and move on -- each one demands further inspection. It's easy to see that Martin takes much pride in his work, and every pixel in every photo is quite intentional on his part.

    Aside from being a great photographer, Martin is quite friendly and personal. He replies to his comments, he participates in other photography social groups, and most importantly... he's one of the most humble and down-to-earth people I've encountered -- which is great to see coming from somebody with so much raw talent."
