"One of those photographers whose work makes me say 'I wish I could take a shot like that...'"

IRIS ET CHIMERE says:
"Nicolas à ce don de sublimer ce que beaucoup ignorerait. Son regard est atypique et son excellence dans le dessin l'est aussi dans la photo.
Un stream qui mérite qu'on s'y attarde un petit moment et qu on apprécie ce travail."

"By far the best, they are landscapes, street or whatever else he always manages to capture the best light to excite those who admire his work, or rather his masterpieces! I lose myself in those pictures, with great esteem

"SURPRISE!!! I was very pleased to meet Nicolas some months ago. I think he is one of my most talented Flickr Friends. His atmospheres, lights, scenarios, locations.... well everything is great. The art of composition is a natural thing in his approach to his photography.
These words are just to attest my appreciation to his works.

Brendan Ó Sé says:
"I must say I am surprised too. I would have thought that many people would have come to write about how much they enjoy Sparth's work.
I certainly do enjoy it. Each day I am amazed at the consistently high quality of his images.
He is one the top photographers on Flickr, and is also a great Flickronian who always takes the time to view his contacts' photographers and comment with kind words.
Thanks for making Flickr better. Thanks for sharing. Thanks for supporting."

"I discovered Sparth not too long ago and still in awe with his creativity. Not only he has the talent of a great photographer, I recently discovered he is an accomplished artist as well...Watch his space for more of his soulful posts...His space is like a virtual art gallery!"
