How I wish I could have gone to the Sahara Desert with you! Just finished reading "The Eight" and it was so descriptive of the Sahara and Algiers that I am Googling all the photography of the region. Would love nothing more than to be a world traveler and witness all the beauty of the world provided by the landscape. Perhaps in my next life...Until then, I will enjoy the photos taken by others (much as I would love to take photos of my own). Merci beaucoups for letting me share your experience through your photographs.

Hi Fred
I love your photos of Paris by night and wondered if you ever sold copies of them.

you have gorgeous shots and great composition... magnifique!

Hi Fred, I came across your galleries by chance today and had a look around. Your work is very beautifully presented and of a high standard. The flower shots are very sharp and have wonderful colourings. I have added you to my favourites list and look forward to returning to viewing your work again. Well done!!
Kind regards,

Dear Fred , I hope you can understand english. I envy you the ability to see these beautiful places . I have just been through you Icelandic odyssey. Great stuff. I think the atmosphere and compositions you created are just so right. Usually I only find a few images out of a series exceptional but here two dozen at least. CONGRATULATIONS
Lisa Pollard 09-Dec-2008 19:57
By sheer good fortune I have just stumbled upon your Paris galleries. The pictures are beautiful, poignant and capture the atmospheric city I have come to adore and hail as my favourite in the world. Now I am full of nostalgia and a desire to return in the very near future. Thank you.
Gilles Dehérand23-Nov-2008 09:34
Je viens de passer un petit temps à parcourir vos galeries et elles sont magnifiques!
Quel que soit le sujet abordé.
Continuez sur cette voie!
Bien à vous
lyndon lim 02-Nov-2008 12:19
Your pictures are ridiculously good regardless of the lens and equipment you have used. Colors, composition and contrast very nice to look really tell a story. I don't usually bother to write comments but your pictures just compelled me to do so.

Keep up the good work. Lyndon

Very much enjoyed your galleries and will return again as I love France and Paris. Your wide assortment of images are fascinating and make me want to return soon. Too bad about the dollar. It is very expensive to visit now!

Great work. I just had the pleasure of visiting Paris for the first time about 3 weeks ago. Naturally I fell in love with the city and can't wait to return. You represent her very well, and bring back a lot of memories. Thanks

Guest 10-Jan-2007 09:02
Très belles galeries.
Ca donne envie de continuer à apprendre.
La photographie est vraiment un art magique et délicat.
Merci d'aviver ma persévérance.
J'ai encore beaucoup de chemin à faire et ça c'est une agréable perspective.

Eric Carrère07-Jan-2007 08:58
A mon tour Fred de te remercier de ta visite sur mes galeries et surtout de te féliciter pour ton oeuvre. Tu as fait une arrivée remarquable et remarquée sur Pbase dont tu es aujourd'hui un des brillants animateurs :)
Sweet Mojo05-Jan-2007 14:20
I will never look at my little Canon the same way again and might even feel some resentment that it doesn't give me the same masterpieces that your camera does but I'll keep trying anyway because I love your images and would like to emulate your work.

The way you capture shadows and light has taught me to look for more and to see things differently. I am only an amateur but I have appreciation and passion for photography and your work has inspired me, thank you.
Thierry Lucas30-Dec-2006 23:25
Bonjour Fred,
j'aime beaucoup vos galleries et votre style.
il me semble que nous avons quelques centres d'intéret communs :)
En tout cas félicitations.
Je reviendrais voir tout cela plus en détail.
A bientôt,

Guest 26-Dec-2006 10:12
I love you "Paris" galleries very much; especially the night shots! They are really beautifull! Keep up the good work!
Guest 26-Dec-2006 00:06
Beautiful Galleries..
Guest 21-Dec-2006 06:37
You're truly a master of your craft! You're definitely one of the top photographers that I've encountered. Each image you composed is so skillfully executed. Thank you for sharing your photos and setting a pretty high standard for me (I'm sure for others as well). You're a true inspiration! Happy shooting!
Guest 18-Dec-2006 21:54
Hi Fred, You show us what can be done if you have more than a few hours in Paris!
Guest 11-Dec-2006 11:42
Je ne verais plus Paris du même "oeil" maintenant ! Pourtant dieu sais que j'y ai trainé sous bien des angles !
Patrick DEBETENCOURT28-Nov-2006 14:32
Ce n'est pas la première fois que je viens "chez vous", mais c'est toujours le même plaisir ! Je vous ai ajouté dans ma liste de favoris de façon à renouveler cette visite qui pour moi est une leçon de photo par l'exemple ! Merci et à bientôt donc. Patrick
Guest 27-Nov-2006 13:39
Hi Fred,
Been browsing though your wonderful galleries for a while now. You got some stunning galleries out there and the presentation is equally great!!
~Cheers San
Robyco23-Nov-2006 14:18
I just saw some pictures, amazing !!
Very good shots all over your galleries.
I will be back.
Guest 22-Nov-2006 14:55
I would say you are so good. I enjoyed every single photo of yours. Amazing jobs !
Rosaire Lemay14-Nov-2006 23:07
Vous avez l'une des plus magnifiques galeries qui soit sur PBASE. Vos photos sont vraiment hors de l'ordinaire. Mais là où j'ai beaucoup de difficulté, c'est que vous utilisez à profusion la langue anglaise sur votre site: «walking around de Seine» - «Paris in B, W.»
Il m'a toujours semblé que Paris était le coeur de la langue française sur notre planète, LA Référence.
Je suis du Québec, une enclave francophone dans toute l'Amérique, nord et sud, qui a conservé intacte la langue française depuis sa découverte par Jacques Cartier en 1534. Et nous l'avons conservée, cette langue, malgré une domination anglaise depuis 1789 alors que notre France cédait pour rien le Canada à l'Angleterre par le Traité de Paris.
Je comprends, je vous prends un peu comme cible au nom de tous les citoyens français.
Ma mère patrie me déçoit énormément.
Mais force m'est de reconnaître la qualité plus que remarquables de ses artistes de l'appareil photo.

Carinoza02-Nov-2006 07:08
By the way, like what the other poster in your gallery asked:
"Could you please let me know how you are adding the main picture into the galleries (the large one above the thumbnails?"

Thank you.
Carinoza02-Nov-2006 07:06
Love your photographic style and technique. Thanx for sharing your talent!

Guest 25-Oct-2006 16:18
Oh wow. That's all i can say really. Wonderful visiting your site. I really marvel at the sharpness of your lenses. How do you get such quality? I'm using a D70 and cant achieve such sharpness. Is it the lenses? Great site!

Check out my site if you're free. I'm in need of feedback.
