    ""Jesse consistently, on this webstie/ flickr stream is a source of beautiful photography in every category. The seascapes, flora and Sunsets, people, candids, dogs, and even shoes are among the best photos i have seen anywhere. From the colors bowl to the insects and spiders (and everything in between) she provides photography that makes me feel good to see it.

    it is technically sound and visually inspiring. This is true honest photography.

    If you look at some of the other people leaving testimonials, this list shows how she has touched photographers like myself to the really great masters of the camera."

    Is one of my favorite photographer's on Flickr. Her photography is a true work of art as she captures the beauty of her native Bali, Indonesia. Her seascapes have perfectly balanced light as they provoke an emotion of positive energy. She also includes her EXIF data with every shot so that others can learn from her. Looking forward to more of your work my dear. Jave"

As a photographer, it's apparent to me that she not only sees the images, she feels them with her heart too - that's the only way to capture such beauties again and again. Bravo, Jessy. Oh, check out her great macro and nature shots too!"

    At first, before my eyes completely took in what I was seeing, I nearly dismissed it as yet another photostream by yet another graphic designer on flickr who takes extremely pretty pictures of flowers and sunsets, but the eye grows tired of rapidly.

    However, the instance my eye did focus, I was amazed at what I was seeing; a photographer with the sense of asthetics of a graphic designer, but the true talent of a great photographer and that of being able to see things that have meaning.

    Jessy's photos have soul, they tell a story. She has an immense talent and I very much hope she is aware of this and decides to become a photographer.

    This photostream is one place on flickr I never tire of."

She currently lists on her profile that she is a beginner but any time spent on her photostream and you would find that is a very modest statement as she is excellent over a very wide range of subjects. She is Bali’s greatest ambassador as her photographs are so good it makes me want to book a trip in the near future."
