    "Ich habe viele Ideen für Fotos bei Toni entdeckt. Die Foto aus dem Inneren der Autos sind total genial! Genau so wie seine HDR und Treppenbilder. Unglaublich sind auch die Bilder von Zügen und in der U-Bahn!

    "What is Toni good at? The sprawling landscape, the empty sky, the railway station, an escalator, bikes, cityscapes, canals, mountains, hills, the occasional selective coloured B&W, motion blurs, skating, taking a panning shot of himself while he is skating by holding the camera down to his feet at an angle, swans in the water, ...
    That is just a little summary of what Toni is good at. He's best at putting a smile on my face as I see his amazing photos of all that and more!
    Keep on shooting Toni!"

    "Toni's got a great eye for composition, and mad post processing skills! I am always delighted to see his work and more than often I am pleasantly surprised by them. His unique perspectives and rendering techniques have made him one of the best photographers on flickr today. Keep up the great work, Toni!"

    "Die Fotos von Toni überzeugen, sowohl die HDR Bilder von Zürich als auch seine Skate, Zug, Auto und Treppen Bilder. Die Fotos wirken nie langweilig im Gegenteil, Toni überascht uns immer wieder mit neuen frischen Ideen. Ich muss ehrlich zugeben, ich habe auch schon mal eine seiner Ideen "geklaut"."

    "He's the king of HDR-Pictures and his selfportrais (mostly on skates :-)) are very exceptionally.
    He impresses me always with his ideas"

    "Toni has a great eye for execution and mind for rendering. His shots leave me (and no doubt others) amazed and wanting to get out there and try the same!

    Even better he's an inline skater that gets out often with his camera!"

    "Toni is very talented, he can make very different pictures and all of them will look great. He has only one advantage: he lives in a very beautiful city, Zürich ;-).
    Also his HDR pictures are for sure of the best around Flickr.
    So... don´t be afraid of Swiss German and come in.
    You will not regret it !"
