"Five months ago, I got to Photostream Moaan and realized - I have nothing like this had not yet seen! Professional look, the hands of the master and a set of excellent optics provide amazing results. Come and see the work of the highest class. My Friend, I wish you creative inspiration and we are happy with their works!"
September 23rd, 2009
"I was stumbling through flickr some months ago when I first joined, and I came across moaan's photography. I was completely floored by what I saw. The attention to detail is unmatched. The bokeh is the crispest I've seen. The colors are brilliant.
I added him as a contact, and felt honored when he added me as a contact.
Every single upload builds on the one before it, and takes his photography to higher places.
He truly is a master of his craft."
August 13th, 2009
"Moaan takes medium and 35mm photography to a new level. he is a master of shadows and emotion -- and has a good sense of humor. i enjoy the freshness and crisp detail of his photographs.
He is the Bokehmeister with his Noctiflux too!"
July 12th, 2009
Christer Johansen says:
"What can I say about Moaan that hasn't already been said? Not much........he is a fantastic Flickr friend and one of the first that I got in touch with when I started out some 10 months ago.
His use of colour, composition and not to mention bokeh is par to none.
I dont think I have seen anyone use his Leica the way he does and he never stops amazing me.
Lets just say I blame him for introducing me to rangefinders and expensive Leica equipment.
He is the one and only King of Bokeh!
Take care my friend :)
July 7th, 2009
"Moaan san is one of my first friend since the beginning of my Flickr experience. I came to his photostream through an amazing F1.0 shot and I rested. An amazing world appeared to me in all its beauty. I was honored by his friendship some months later and he made me happy. Thanks Moaan san, your honored friend (:-)),

Chase Hoffman says:
"His ability to wield rangefinders with such great focus is an inspiring talent. I can definitely say that he has been a major part of furthering my skill as a photographer especially with the use of shallow depth of field."

Kiran VR says:
"I happened to view Moaan's photo stream and it was a wonderland!
I added many of them to my favorites but soon decided to end up as I had no choice but to add all of them if I continued. Yet it was irresistible at certain stops.
Moaan is a talented photographer!
I love his photos and his eyes to see them in that way, his mastery!
This is the first time I write a testimonial for anyone in flickr. Moaan
deserves one if I decide to write one for anyone.
I am proud to be his Contact...
Wishing him all the best..."

"I think he's a rich man, bcuz he has lots of really great cameras! At least he works hard and he deserves them. I don't know him very well, but I always look forward his new photos come. The most beautiful part I admire is his stills photos. He's such a magician and make every little things become vivid and lived. I wonder maybe his eyes aren't normal ones. Are they?!!
Nice to meet you here Mr. moaan, you deserve more than this!

the half-blood prince says:
"what a tremendous photographer. i mean, it's so easy to get bored looking at flowers and foliage all the time, but moaan's photostream never bores me. his use of bokeh is probably the best i've seen on flickr, even when he's not shooting trees and stuff. i love all the photos he takes of his dog, as well as the various other subjects in his stream. if there was one word i could use to describe moaan's photostream, it would be a compound word: INSTA-FAVE!!! CHECK HIM OUT!!!!"

"moaan san's japan is so different from what I saw when I was there several years ago. His world is so vivid and so dreaming, then I suddently realize it is not about the Japan, it is moaan san's world. It is his poem and his heart.
Moaan san, next time if I have a chance to visit Japan, please teach me all your camera stuff. :)) Ganbate !!!"

"Sensei Moaan is one of those true artists, that live their artform on a 24h basis. That's why he sees things that nobody else notices, and brings them to a form that makes them visible to us all. He is sensitive, full of respect and love towards people and nature alike, and that love really shines through his photographs."
November 17th, 2006

"one of my very favorite flickr photographers , i love the minimalist ethic and the choice of subject,i follow osaka 7 photographers closely and moan your photos are inspirational"
October 27th, 2006
"I came across moaan's photos in the Leica pool when I was trying to work out what all that fuss over Leica was about. moaan's photo's caught my eye then, and I've enjoyed looking at them ever since.
But with all good photographers, it's not about the camera. I've seen moaan's style evolve over the months, until by now I think I would recognize his photos anywhere.
It's the way he plays with light and colour. And great bokeh."
September 13th, 2006
"One of the my favorite photographer on Flickr!!
I finally writting this Testimonial^^
His photos are always moaan(as a Japanese).
That absolutely make me feel something. and always make me want to check every single photo!!"
September 9th, 2006
"This shall be my first testimonial on someone's gallery.
I have had moaan on my contact list for a while now, and had the delight of watching a master in focusing on the little details and bringing them to life. His photos are very relaxing and take you to another world.
Watching any of his sets on slideshow is a real treat."
September 9th, 2006
"moaan's photostream is the one I keep coming back. His photography is breathtaking and he's a person you'll be glad to have known. :)"
August 15th, 2006
"After stumbling upon Moaan's photostream I came to two conclusions:
1. I need to learn more about light
2. I need to save up for a Noctilux f1.0 lens for my leica
He has such an incredible eye for capturing the inanimate in such a state of serenity that it completely boggles my mind. In a world of ever growing digital photographers, I revel in the fact that I can check out Moaans photo stream and see it teaming with the rich saturation of film. A technical genius in photography."
