    "Writing a testimonial for Mary is the easiest thing in the world to do. She is simply one of the best on Flickr. She sees a photograph as well as anyone before she clicks the shutter and the results are proof of her amazing talent. I look forward to her postings so that I can see the way it is supposed to be done. We photograph some of the same type subjects, but where I make a photograph, she creates art. It isn't just an occasional good photo from her; they are all superior! That is the difference between Mary and most of the Flickr community."

    "Mary is a wonderful photographer and I totally enjoyed looking at her photographs of the Tennessee countryside. It is always interesting to see what new and exciting photographs she has taken, whether it is a photograph of a wild bird, flower, or one of those wonderful abandoned homesteads. You can always see that uniqueness in the photographs she takes, along with just absolutely wonderful colors.
    Mary is a wonderful Flickr friend and contact."

    "I am happy to know Mary...we met in a flickr group. She has some of the best captures taken from our beautiful State of Tennessee which depicts these wonderful surrounding mountains, and natural landscapes of our eastern regional environment.
    Mary's great eye for photography surpasses the limits of an amateur.
    Granted if you stumble across her will see what I you will get lost in her magical photos ~
    Thank you Mary for sharing your world with us...I always look forward to seeing your posts!"

    "Mary has what I call The Eye". She is truely a gifted photographer - able to see beauty most everywhere. Her skills at seeing this beauty combined with her ability to translate that beauty into a well thought out and meaningfully composed photo can be seen throughout her photostream. I look forward to seeing and learning more from her photos - especially those from her new camera!"

    "Mary has a poetic eye for the Tennessee landscape. It is obvious that much thought goes into each posted image. We see the cream that has risen to the top and it is tasty not hasty! Her creativity with the camera and with the computer has given me incentives for future photography directions. You will be rewarded well if you take some time to soak in just a few of her works of art."

    "I recently stumbled onto Mary's photostream by chance and saw some of the best landscape photos there is on flickr (jawdropper!), and that's just for starters. She's got a great eye for details and colours in her work.
    You'd find her photos so very refreshing to view and can never get enough.
    Keep 'em coming Mary and thanks so much for sharing your beautiful images from where you are with us.
    Happy snapping!"
