Hello, Leo. I received my "Razzle-dazzle" print in the mail yesterday. I wanted to thank you for sending it so promptly and how happy I am to have it to go with the "Bedazzled" print. I absolutely love them and can't wait to frame them and hang them up this weekend. I only wish I had more walls so I could have more of your gorgeous work.
I hope to see you in Charlotte again!
Linda Richard Wilt
I got your web address from Louise recently and just now browsed your gallery. (big smile) Your art is breathtaking. I love that you have the ability to make me see a new piece of beauty in an everyday item. There are so many of your prints that I would love to have, but to start with it will be "Off To See the Wizard".
My bedroom is decorated with the artwork of people and places I loved the most, and I am VERY excited to add you to my collection!
Your cousin, Linda Richard Wilt
Hi Leo. I just wanted to tell you how nice it was to meet you at the Art on the Square in Belleville, Illinois. I just love your images and so glad I purchased 'Bedazzel". You are a fantastic artist, thank you for taking the time to talk to me. Your images inspire and facinate me.
I hope your stay in Belleville was pleasant.
Appreciate your nice comment on my image...

hi Leo, the 'not quite exactly the same piano' - (above mantle) art and "cheers! fun while it lasted" print (in the dining room) are such great additions to this home...thanks! saw you at the Boston Mills Art Fest this past year
Leo my friend - I'm so very blown away at this discovery of the astonishing extent of your right brain. I suppose this might be the way I stay in touch with you after you fly away from Oberlin. Be well.
Sheri & Doug Story
Leo - we love our two newest additions to our art collection - "When Your Smiling" and "Fun While It Lasted!" Thank you! We'll definitely be following your work from now on and hope to see you again at the Krasl Art Fair.

p.s. Congratulations on Best of Show in Photography!
Hi- It was nice having dinner with you at the Ellises. Love your abstract/still life shots in particular! Best of luck to both of you.
Thanks for looking in
Leo, I loved all your galleries-- great to see your work online. Hope you and your family are well. Best regards.
Met you briefly at the sidewalk art show in Roanoke. Love your work
Wow, Leo! Your photo art is awesome! Jim McBride gave me your website and told me how much he had enjoyed catching up with you. This website presents a whole different you! Thanks for the images!
Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my gallery and for the comments. You have so many fantastic images in your different galleries. Thanks for sharing them with us - I'm sure a lot of us get a lot of inspiration from them.
For some reason, your pictures really cheered me up.
Great work, your photo galleries are fantastic.
I love the light, happiness and the mode in your photos.. they are so colorfull and great...
Thanks for visiting and commenting. :)
you are a very talented and artistic person
Inspiring, wonderfully treated and framed, unconventional, funny, unique... What else?
Outstanding talent: it make me feel miles behind :)
Thanks for sharing
Im still looking at your excellent photographs and still find them inspiring. How many years has it been now ? amazing work.
The consistently mesmerising tones you're producing suggest to me that you're doing something very right! Keep up the great work. Thanks.
Lovely work, I'm especially fond of your abstracts. Cheers!
thank you so much for sharing your wonderful world with us. you've been a real inspiration to me.
Thanks for your comment
It caused me to visit your impressive galleries
I have added you to my favorites list
As a new user to PBase, I've just found your galleries. Your photographs are really inspirational, I can only aspire to this level of photography. Definitely added to my favourites. Best Regards, Nick.
Thank you so much for your comment on my photo of the Weed.
You are an amazing artist.
I love your way of looking at the world.
One of the great galleries in PBase. Technique + humanity = art. Thanks for existing.
Jan M. Stenman
Thank you so much for both your comments and votes!
Autumn ... thanks for stopping by My PaD and the compliment. After browsing your wonderful galleries and fantastic collection of images, I'm flattered you took time to comment on one of mine. Cheers.
One benefit of commenting on another's gallery: I never would have known what I was missing. Thanks for commenting...and for making me aware that your work exists. There are a bunch of really good photographers here. Unfortunately, some will remain unknown because they don't take the time to put in a word of encouragement for a fellow photographer. You taught me a lesson. As lousy as I am with my comments/critiquing, I'll make more of an effort to say something...even a simple word as "voted". - Tom
A pbase friend referred me to your galleries. They are indeed lovely!
Thanks for the comments on my Golden Gate bridge. I will come here, truly amazing photographer YOU ARE..
On the subject of creativity, I think I find you the best photographer I've seen on Pbase.
Very refreshing work in your galleries! I especially love the glassworks.
William L. Taylor
I'm the "kite nut" you photographed. I looked at your site and was bowled over. As a retired lifetime professional photographer, I give you highest marks. You have a good eye, superb technique and visualization. Keep up the good work. With digital now, there is a whole new world for us out there. After a life time spent learning how to use film, now I need to learn how to use digital!
Leo~ It's 3:45 in the morning. I got up over 2 hrs ago to tend to one of the twins. I came downstairs to get a drink of water and I've been looking at your site ever since (only quiet, uniterrupted time I get). I can't even find the words to accurately describe how amazed I am with your work. I continue to be awestruck with your talent and so thrilled that you have let it OUT so we can ALL enjoy it! Can't wait to share your site with my family this Christmas. I think I'm going to want to do a "seasons" of Williamsburg selection for my home. It's just going to be so doggone hard to pick the actual photos 'cause they're all so great! I'll be in touch! ~Lauren
you've got an awesome gallery! Very inspiring and very talented!
It means so much to me as an amateur photographer to see your nice comments. Thank you so much! :)
I just keep coming back to your work over and over again. You have such a zest for life and photography...it shows! Please keep sharing your wonderful photographs with the world, it is certainly a pleasure to view...and so much fun!
WOW...many of ur images left me speechless! I would feel more than honoured, if you could sop by at my pbase and leave some criticism! Best regards, Armin

I don't know why I never looked here before...a veritable treasure trove of images. Your work is outstanding, evoking emotional response from laughter to sadness. I believe good photography engages the feelings as well as the eye.
The Feminine Perspective
Hello, I've visited before, along with other members The Feminine Perspective and I thought you might like to see our 'Alphabet Soup' gallery that you inspired :)
Thanks ~ Clare
Beautiful galleries! Will definitely be back!
Wat een prachtige vernieuwde website. Heldere opzet en ook een goede kleurstelling. Mooi.
Met vriendelijke groeten
Your work is simply astonishing! I need to come back here every day. Your talent is overwhelming.
I am sooooo glad I happened across your galleries. I have been shooting and posting on pbase for about a year and this is now my favorite gallery. Amazing talent you have! Thanks for sharing your work.

Kelly Clark Moncure
these shots are beautiful! I especially like the shapes gallery and voted- great focus and color...can I ask what style sheet you use? It really sets off your pictures-
please let me know at www.pbase.com/kc_artworks
Your galleries are really outstanding, and I very much enjoyed viewing them. Thanks for your kind words regarding my gallery -- it's great to receive positive comments from someone as photographically talented as yourself!
Well as a backward geriatric buying used 5700 I came across your gallery today and talent of this magnitude earns tributes and wonder I now know the dross i produce I am in awe.
You have a wonderful gallery. I love your pictures they are magnificent. Keep up your beautiful work.
I really appreciate your comment on my PAD. I've had your "Self Exposed" gallery bookmarked since well before I even joined Pbase. Everything you've captured is such a great inspiration for me to keep picking up that camera, looking, exploring and trying to capture the world around me. Many thanks.
Hi, just to tell you that I love your work!1 so full of creativity and a unique style. A pure pleasure... I'll come back, for sure.
Wanted to get a new camera and then saw your gallery of amazing pictures with the E5700 Nikon. Changed my mind about upgrading!
Hello , It never fails to amaze me the richness of this site and the fantastic photographs
found on p base. Your galleries have done this today ! I have found fresh inspiration
from your exciting work . Thanks and I will be back to view more.
Thank you for your recent visit to my PaD and your most kind comments. I too enjoy popping over to see what you have been up to.--Rene
John Harvey Photography
Charette, your galleries are great, full of very creative, entertaining and inspiring work.
In fact, I got inspiration from your Marbles 'n' Glass gallery and used your 'Cheers' idea for an image of my own for an entry in KM C38: Chocolate:
I've acknowledged you and your work in the caption for that one. Thanks for the excellent idea! :^)
Thank you for visiting and commenting on my gallery. Your stuff is amazing.
Autumn Sky: Had no idea you were in Virginia!! Thanks for the comment, John
Thanks for you recent comment. Your galleries are fantastic! I love the creativity! The "rumble" shot is priceless.
Thank you for leaving a comment on "eggsactly". I have visited one or two of your iamges before, but I took a longer look around this time and have added you to my favorites. You have many wonderful and creative images, I will return often to enjoy and be inspired. The effect on "eggsactly" is called weird lines.--Rene
What a wonderful gallery! I plan on stopping here often.

Hello and thank you for leaving a comment in my PAD gallery. I have just been in to have a look at your work...it is superb, I really enjoyed it. I will check back often to see what you are up to. Keep up the exceptional work.
Followed a link from the challenge site - and so glad I did. I've really enjoyed looking through your galleries. You've got some beautiful and very original images. Thank you.
We have an artist at work here! Each image is carefully crafted with love and passion. These galleries engender literately spirits. Congrat!
Great work! Creative and unconventional and a very personal style. This is true Art. Enjoyed it very much, thanks for sharing/
Just beautiful !
Belle galerie à visiter pour s'évader.
Thank you for commenting my photos. I really appreciate it, especially when coming from an outstanding photographer like you. All of your galleries are excellent work. And your still-life and abstract photos are my favorite!
Thanks for your comments! Yeah, that's me and I was using an aroma candle that comes in a glass jar for the lighting. Two wicks though..:)
See Why See
After viewing through your galleries, I can conclude that you are one of the best in Pbase. Perhaps I'm ignorant and haven't seen all of the excellent pictures yet.
Your pictures all have very natural and "COOL" color, and good constrast between the light and shadow. I'm amazed by how well you manipulate the lighting. I'm gonna start experimenting more with my camera.
Shelly- VA Beach
I live in Va Beach and have never appreciated Coll. of W&M or Wmburg as much as I have thru your pics! Will definitely have to revisit them both to "see" what you're seeing. Beautiful galleries, all.
Beautiful images! You should post on DPReview more often, so others would discover these galleries.
Re my framing: what I do is use the same picture as a background (sometimes a crop if there's not enough going on around the edges) and add a gaussian blur. Then I make a new vector layer where I draw a box along the inside of the frame and blur that too, very lightly. That's it!
Autumn Sky, thanks for the nice comments on my Fire in the Sky photo. Cheers! Stan
Thanks for your comments on my photo. I am only into my second week so I have a long way to go. Your gallery is very nice!
I really like your style. nice variety of images.
Très belle gallerie avec beaucoup de variété
En fantastisk samling, mycket vackert.
You are DEFINITLY one of my favorite artist on pbase! Your galleries are so inspiring to me... Tnx for sharing...
Hello, thanks for the nice comments on my "White-out on the range" photo. Your photography is amazing. Stan
Thank you for taking the time to comment on my work. Your comment expresses what I strive to achieve.
Thank you for your comments and suggetions you left about my images. You are very good and I really appreciate your visit to my gallery.
Hello, I enjoyed your photos.Thx for sharing. :)
I live in Indiana now, but my heart still lives in Williamsburg. Thanks for the beautiful reminders of my favorite home.
Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed the photos of Colonial Williamsburg. Your work is the best on CW that I have found on the internet. This William and Mary alum thanks you for sharing.
Bob and Lil
Just heard about your galleries from Linda. The work of His hands is just superb and you have captured it so well. Will continue to enjoy them from time to time.
Nice to follow you from dp review to pbase. I liked your photos and their framing and arrangement too. Are all your photos with UZI?. Your place is virginia and my remote town in India grows virginina tobacco. Is there tobacco business in your state?
Wonderful galleries! I especially like the Williamsburg & Jamestown Island photos--you've done a great job capturing the beauty in the area you live. Also I wanted to thank you for your generosty in sharing how you made your stylesheets. It's helped me tremendously! thanks again!
Wonderful photographs! Very well composed and thought out. The colors are outstanding. You have a very good eye and talent at this!
What a beautiful style sheet for your galleries! It seems as thought you can almost "feel" the texture of the snowflakes. Beautiful photographs...
I wish to thank you for the inspiration and more particularly, for your excellent guide on how to customize PBase. I immediately used some of your recipes, and it worked great.
Many thanks again
connell patrick byrne

Beautiful,inspiring,exceptional,thoughtfully composed, UUhhmm.. I think they call this talent:-) I'll stop by now and then for inspiration.
Hey I love your photos! I actually live in Williamsburg, so its great to see some of these things...like the river, the parkway, and CW gardens.. in a new light. Awesome!
What a great celebration! Pictures are wonderful. Thank you for sharing.
