    "Sylvan is Master Elrond in disguise...nobody knows this so don't tell anyone! Sylvan's images are far and above the ordinary, far and above the general averga scene! He works magic with the lens and takes you deep into Middle Earth, sometimes probably not intentionally!

    Also, Sylvan as a great friend. He is warm and sweet and funny, and will make you laugh! He has these insane blue neon eyes that see right through you LOL...even when he's not looking!

    HOOOOOOOWDY HOOOOOOOOOO Sylvan, thank you for sharing your amazing talent and beautiful world with us and thank you for being such an awesome friend! xxxxx"

    "Sylvain follow's with so much enthousiasm and power his agenda, if you take the time to analyse his creations and work, you can do only one thing : admire.
    A good lesson for us : find here a human beeing and nature and HiTech in a fine and dedicated unity"
