    "Mariana finds that pretty, sparkly light and creates magical pictures.
    Her world seems full of hope and happiness.
    And she's a gorgeous lady whom I'm lucky to call my friend!

    p.s. I thought I'd written you one of these AGES ago!"

    "
    Mariana es sin duda una recolectora de pequeños tesoros. Sus imágenes son evocadoras. Sus atmósferas siempre cálidas y hogareñas te susurran al oido.
    Sus detalles son inspiradores y tan fascinantes para mi....
    Por no hablar de esos tonos tan mágicos y suaves.
    Conocer la fotografía de Mariana y ver el sentimiento que desprenden es quizás conocer su esencia.
    Y esa esencia es inconfundible.

    Gracias por darme la oportunidad de conocerte pasito a pasito. Espero seguir disfrutando con tus fotos siempre. Adoro tu trabajo porque posee esas dos cualidades que todo artista debe tener:sensibilidad y sentimiento.
    No cambies."

    "NicaMom! What can I say about her except that she is SO VERY inspiring! Her work gets more and more beautiful everyday! There is wonder and a dreamy peacefulness in her photos that makes me want to stop and smell the roses...and the oranges, and peaches, and the salty sea air... She is a constant reminder to just be still and enjoy the glory {of God} all around us.
    Besides being artistically wonderful, she is also a faithful encourager and friend on flickr and I feel honored to have her as mine!"

    "I am blessed to be married to Mariana so I may be prejudiced :-) Anyway, I think she has a very great ability to convey emotion thru her photographic composition. I see happiness, sadness, joy, peace, sensuality, calmness, and many other emotions in her pictures. She frequently breaks the rules of composition and it works for her.

    I've been trying to teach her some of the technical aspects of the hobby while encouraging her to ignore the "rules of composition" and explore her own composition which works very well. I only wish I had this ability in my photography.

    To encourage her in this hobby I've been lending her my Nikon D50 for the past 2 months to prepare her for her 2007 Christmas present from her loving hubby of a Nikon D40 with kit lens.

    I believe God can speak even through photography and I look forward to seeing what is said through the photography of Mariana over the coming years.

    Merry Christmas honey!
    Love,
    Duane"
