"Tom is one of my favorite photographers and contacts on Flickr! I have only wrote 8 other testimonials and save them for the best of the best and you my friend are in that category.
His work is of a consistently high quality and always has the time to offer feedback on my work. Keep up the great work man! I love your photos! :)"

"There is only 1 word that i can use for all your photos. A universal word. An overused word, but nevertheless a word expressing everything i feel for your pictures. Love. Tom, I also love you. Just for the fact your pictures are always amazing and breathtaking and beautiful. You're really nice too :)
I dont even know how I came to be your Flickr friend but I am so glad I did. I look forward to each new shot and when i have enough money to buy a print instead of silly stuff like college books ;) then i am buying one. Finding a fave will be difficult because I like so many.
Keep doing what you are doing because you are so good at it. The picture is always stunning and your love for capturing these scenes really shows through!"

"Tom is one very special contact and a true friend. I always look forward to his postings each day to see the wonderful colours he has managed to capture from his own little piece of paradise.
Tom always manages to capture the most wonderful moments of sunset. I definitely think he lives at the beach during the time of the setting sun.
Not only does he produce excellent shots day after day, he accompanies them with wonderful prose that is so inspiring.
Tom and I began our group “The Fat Bee and Dancing Gull” after a conversation that went from, “””Now that would a grand idea!!!”””, to it actually happening. I am so proud to be a part of that group with you Tom.
Do yourself a favour and have a look at his wonderful photostream, you will not be disappointed.
Thanks Tom for being you :) Car xx"

"I don't believe it is possible to find more beautiful images of sky scenes. Tom has a tremendous ability to bring scenes to life through the use of reflection and colour. His work is outstanding and a great inspiration to me."
