Thanks for sharing your images. They are a joy and an inspiration. I have you on my favorites list, and also included in a favorites group just for photographers/artists who, in my opinion, do exceptional monochrome work. Thanks again for sharing your work!
All the best, ...z

I love the photographs and especially love the lighting you use. This really catches the eye. I would love to see really rustic country photographs of old barns and wheat fields! You would really do amazing things I just know! Love your galleries!!!!

Sue - I want to congratulate you on your presentation to the Nth Sydney Leagues Club Photographic Society last night. It was most inspiring and a great tribute to your creativity.
Guest 10-Mar-2011 16:07
I just came across your galleries while researching Lensbaby photos. I'm floored by your talent as a photographer. You have a great ability to find beauty in the mundane ordinary objects around you. I bookmarked your gallery. Thank you for sharing your talents with all of us.
Guest 16-Jan-2011 13:39
Great Gallerys! Thanks for Sharing.
Hilarie Mcneil-Smith26-Dec-2010 22:08

Jim McFerran 22-Aug-2010 11:16
Thank-you for a wonderful day on Sat 21st August. The trip from Bathurst was made more enjoyable by your wonderful and stunning inspirational images. Wow they were fantsatic and your presentation could have gone for another hour or so. Those lensbabies are a real must have lens....
Guest 19-Aug-2010 15:11

So it take me four years to be back to tell you how much I love what you do..
I love every image you post. Its a great pleasure to travel through your portfolio.. your wonderful vision.

Happy New Year Sue. I've just spent an hour browsing through your galleries absolutely captivated by your creativity. Your photographs are so fluid and flowing. I wish I could be as creative as you are. You've just became my #1 inspiration. Thank you for sharing your talent.
larose forest photos29-Nov-2009 21:42
I cannot tell you how much I love your work, Sue. Your flower galleries in particular are superb. The light, the tonality, the softness... they look as if they have been fleetingly caught, captured for a second. I know I have said this several times already, including below, but your galleries are an inspiration. Thank you for sharing with all of us.
creakingbones13-Jul-2009 03:54
Hi Sue, immediately after yesterday I checked out your site-outstanding galleries-loved the lensbaby images. You show great passion.
slhoornstra12-Jul-2009 05:54
Your galleries are splendid and thought provoking, and truly artistic.
Dek Grant22-May-2009 00:07
seems with 150 accolades below me there is not much to add. Your work is inspiring on a personal level, hopefully it will generate imitation, which will be the greatest compliment of all.

Hi Sue,
Wow ... your galleries are first rate! I came to them from some nice comments you left on my friend Sue Roberts galleries (the name thing always gives me a start)
I've added them to my faves as there is far too much good stuff to look at in one or even many sessions.
Guest 15-Jul-2006 22:15

Didier Vanderperre09-May-2006 03:22
Sue, thank you very much for your nice comments on my galleries.
I stopped by to look at yours, what a wonderful collection of images !
Unlike a lot of photographers you have a very distinct style: slightly under exposed, slow shutter speeds that creates blur. Most images, even the color ones have a monchromatic feel to them, it makes them special and gives the collection a sense of unity.
Needless to say you are on my favorite list. I am looking forward to see more.
Martha Albuquerque06-May-2006 12:19
Dear Sue,
Thank you for your kind words in my guestbook! I apreciate that.

Your work is great! I will come back to see more and more.\
Love your Fire gallery!

Thank you so much for the kind comments and affirmation.
Go well,

raymond ker30-Apr-2006 17:30
Dear Sue,
Is it Ansel Adams who said that "Composition is the most powerful way of seeing"?
You have that in great measure.
But your work seems to have extended that definition:
".... most powerful, tender and expressive way of seeing".
Your 'Things I see' gallery is the case in point:
What a truly breathtaking and inspirational collection of images!
Certainly one of the best macro/up-close galleries on PBase
and deserving of the most effusive accolades.
May you continue to inspire us far into the future
and educate through example.
I would therefore appreciate your comments and advice to improve my photography.
Best wishes,
Raymond ....
Dick Boone29-Apr-2006 15:41

Guest 20-Jan-2006 11:32
Good morning, Sue;
After an overview of your galleries I am convinced that you are a master at composition, and that much can be learned from studying your work. I have added you to my list of favorites. Have a great day.
Guest 14-Dec-2005 12:54
Very Interesting work! I like the delicate conveyed by your photos...very feminine and very nice! It's hard getting abstract art right, I think your sensitivity has helped you getting there.

Keep up the good work. Will be back for a closer inspection when I have time.
Guest 10-Dec-2005 19:37
Hi Sue,
thanks for visiting my gallery, because now I know your wonderful work. Your galleries are very interesting. A true pleasure.
Best regards,
Abba Richman01-Dec-2005 16:31
Sue, Thank you for your comments on my photographs. You too have a very special eye for wonderful compositions. It takes a true artist to make an image from seemingly nothing that looks like photographing and you have that unique magic. Abba

First message, wow! Hi Sue, wlecome to Pbase. I've just had an enjoyable stroll through some of our galleries, some very good shots here, and a refreshingly different approach. Keep up the good work!
