Ken Lee 2010 says:
"Wojtek is one of my favorite architectural photographers on Flickr.
His high-quality photos with unique perspective and great composition always draw my attention to the beauty of contemporary architectures.
If you want to explore the multiplicity of modern architectures on Flickr, his photostream will be your first choice!"

Chimay Bleue says:
"I've been following Wojtek's photostream for quite some time now, and he consistently produces stunning work. Most people (including many photographers) can take pictures of buildings but they fail to truly capture the character of the building or the experience. Wojtek produces consistently quality work - he has not only mastered the unique technical demands of architectural photography, but creates work that is a true pleasure to see. When I see his work, I genuinely want to visit the places he photographs."

"Wojtek knows just how to capture that all-telling corner perspective angle of a building; showing the perfect proportions and composition with his wide-angles views.
A key to any series of images. A key he holds."

The Devil in the Detail says:
" I find myself coming back again and again to Wojtek's photostream. His architectural images are among the best on flickr. I find myself being naturally drawn to the way he composes and balances his images and his understanding of space and how to best represent great modern architecture. He has a trademark treatment that stands out immediately from the rest.
If you want to see the best of contemporary architecture as the designers intended, please keep a close eye on this stream."

"I have been following Wojtek's stunning architectural photography for a long time. He has always been a soure of inspiration for my work. His photography is characterised by master compositions, a perfect balance between shapes, angles and vanishing points and understanding of light and impecable post-processing.
Without a doubt Wojtek is becoming a reference in contemporary architectural photography for many years to come."
