"The best Prague photos on flickr!"
September 15th, 2009
"Few people on flickr post such a consistently high standard of inspiring photography as Steve. He has a distinctive and recognisable style which he translates to various subjects making them into something often quite remarkable. An experimenter yet with an artistic eye and so generous with his encouragement of other flickr members.
Many, many thanks and sorry I haven't written this before now ;D"

"Steve has been an inspiration to myself and others, with his eye to perseve, and his talent and artistry of photo manipulation ranging from capuring the mood, composition, and attention to detail.
His skills range from the mastery of HDR photography, to exquisite night and macro work."

"stevacek is a brilliantly creative photographer who takes breathtaking photos. he never seems to get "photographer's block" either---there are no weak shots in his stream
plus, he always adds nice comment on my photos. all in all, a great flickr member and also a great person :)"

"Steve has been amazing me and entertaining me with his beautiful wide-angle HDR of fantastic locations since I've been on Flickr. Exactly what I want out of a contact's photostream - an individual, creative and sensitive presentation of scenes I don't see in my location. He has a great eye for composition and for getting gorgeous coloring from his equipment and software.
Consistently breath-taking, I always hope for new stevacek images and when there are none, I thoroughly enjoy going back thru his stream to see old faves. Flickr would be less without him, thankfully he's here."

"This photographer has an amazing eye for colour and composition. The eye is the most important tool in any form of art. Wonderful work!"

"Just amazing photostream ! Haven't been here for quite some time but now that i finally got back to flickr I see what I missed... Ur HDR was always beautiful, but now it's even more. Specialy those rocks in HDR... I love it ! Keep rocking :))"

"Stevacek is one of my favorites artist here in flickr!!

A professional and in addition note that it loves what does!
I am thankful to known a special photographer like this!!!"

Michael Ash Smith says:
"The world of HDR is different to me. I see numerous posts of them and Steve's are always top of the line. I feel as though some people get away with taking a plain image and making it better than it really is with HDR. This is not the case with Steve. HDR or not, his images are consistently great. They would stand alone as a normal photograph - and his HDR capabilities make them all the better."

Jo ~ says:
"Steve manages to transform nature's reality into the surreal through his masterly and subtle use of HDR, desaturation of colours and use of long exposures. The images of his Czech surroundings are like seeing fairytales come to life, lending themselves very much to storytelling. Some are dark in nature, atmospheric, moody, mysterious and eerie (especially when Steve has also used the Light Painting technique) and others are lighter in mood with a magical feel. Alongside these images are the ones evocative of a futuristic space-age, particularly his photos of the Prague Metro, where shiny metal and vivid hues of silver, reds and blues exist. Earlier fairground photos demonstrate a relevant vibrancy of HDR.
Above all, Steve is a genuine, friendly guy who, despite his success on flickr, remains humble about his photography. Enjoy his unique photostream!"

The Capturer says:
"My favorite hdr artist. His work is amazing the first time i saw one of his photos i had to check out his whole stream and add him as a friend to keep updated on his work. Every shot has a unique dramatic feel to it. I would hang any of his work on my wall if i could. He also makes me want to visit the Czech Republic some day. Wanted to add his photos tell people who think hdr sucks to think again. and people who havent tried it to get out there and do so really inspiring work"
