griz 22-Mar-2006 07:42
the subject is the important part of the photograph, the viewer does'nt want to know about focal lengths and apertures etc just is it a photo worth looking at, and yes, i must say that searching for i love cats was worth it just to see the lovely photographs of the cats on your site, well done !.(oxford england)

Hi Don,
you have some beautiful galleries here! I'll have to come back with more time to enjoy them.
Best regards,
Guest 29-Apr-2005 19:37
What a gallery! Just visited your site and I absolutely love it! You did awesome in this site especially the floral arrays rhythms - just love all the photos in it! You also did a fantastic job in your site's layout - definitely organized and simply amazing! Keep it up! I would certainly visit your site again soon! Kandinsky Print

Hi Don,

2004 was my first real year of photography (well half year to be precise), and I can only aspire to creating the quality of images, and the attention to detail that you have on display here. It's a pleasure to browse through your work. And again thanks for sharing the harrowing images of Asia.

Warm regards,

Nick, London
frank liu11-Jan-2005 08:57
Brilliant works! Really enjoyed going through your galleries. Will come back from time to time.
Nicole Meuwese-van Rhee06-Dec-2004 01:43
Hello Don,
I see your name very often in the galleries!
I have to say, your work is perfect, very great!

Greetings from Nicole Meuwese-van Rhee.
Joanne Kamo04-Dec-2004 02:22
Spectacular collection of galleries. I really love PShopping the colors of autumn, but they are all great.
Ken Chambers ARPS30-Nov-2004 17:40
A beautiful collection of your work. "The Beauty of Rain" is very outstanding.
Guest 15-Nov-2004 06:09
I love looking and studying pictures for styles & techniques. Your's is one of my favorites, and return often for inspiration. Thanks for sharing!
Jeff Cochran14-Nov-2004 19:06
Very impressive galleries.
Lisa12-Nov-2004 16:55
I have always enjoyed your cat gallery but appreciate it even more so now that we have acquired a kitten. Someone threw him, with eyes not even opened yet, into my parents' garbage can. We hand raised him and he's now 9 weeks old and we are enjoying every minute.
mojo 12-Nov-2004 16:51
Very nice stuff. I spend a lot of time in Rockford, so some of the images are familiar to me. I believe the image /photograph is the door in to it’s sole. And every image has one. Thanks for sharing.

Guest 04-Nov-2004 03:34
incredible pictures.... excellent war pictures too, great support for our troops and country...
Andrew Leonard08-Sep-2004 21:38
I have not had time to view all of your pictures, but you are an exceptionally talented photographer. These photos have so much personality - they truly amaze me. Keep up the good work!
Guest 08-Sep-2004 02:53
Your galleries ROCK! Thanks for sharing them!!
Guest 05-Sep-2004 06:04
Thanks for your kind comments. They are greatly appreciated
I enjoyed your galleries as well, especially "The beauty of rain". I hope I'll be able to take pictures like that some day!
Dennis Hoyne05-Sep-2004 03:29
Great galleries, nice work. How do you get the time to do so many great shots.
Don Northup04-Sep-2004 19:35
I want to apologize to hans hendriks, clifford, David Gray and and a few other great pbase supporters. I am sorry, somehow I have accidentally deleted your fine comments. Thanks to all for the continuing support of my galleries.
Guest 30-Aug-2004 14:24
Very good work in support of a president trying to deal with the hardest of situations, sending troops to war. It is good to see the support.
Good luck
Guest 28-Aug-2004 17:44
Thanks for your work Don, it's nice to see the "RIGHT" stuff on here

Iam behind President Bush and his cabinet 100%............Sal

G.M. Hattrup28-Aug-2004 03:47
Great galleries.
You've got guts!
I will keep voting on your other galleries
and pass around your URL.
Keep up the good work,
and may God Bless America.
Buck 27-Aug-2004 18:04
Thanks for putting this gallery together. It's nice to see someone actually stick up for Bush for a change on these forums and show Kerry for what he really is... a good man but liberal as hell.
Guest 25-Aug-2004 22:53
Don, I have perused your galleries many times and am sorry I haven't commented on your work before now. I think you've gotten a very raw deal from those who didn't have to involve themselves in politics if they didn't want to. Hang in there buddy.
Guest 25-Aug-2004 22:27
Cool, and dito. great pics.
Guest 25-Aug-2004 22:20
Thank you for your gallery on Kerry - I hope many see it and begin to think about his misdeeds and mistatements. If he has his way, medal-flinging will be the next new Olympic Sport -- and he would win the Gold.
Lisa25-Aug-2004 20:28
I am happy to see that your galleries and have been restored to their proper places in the all time popular gallery lists. You have some of the best galleries on Pbase and I hope you continue to add to and create more galleries.
Melanie25-Aug-2004 15:58
Hey, what's all that about? I guess I have been away too long.
I tend to stay away (mostly) from political galleries so I don't know what's up with that. BUT I do enjoy your galleries, and to wipe out so much of your true talented photo's...
What (if anything) can I do to help? :?

A Friend
Dog Breath25-Aug-2004 12:30
you sure are getting a bum rap..all for having an opinion. I think you are a fantastic photographer! you have some of the finest pix on Pbase (I think all those Pbase Nazi's are jealous) Keep up the great work!

penelope pitstop25-Aug-2004 04:43
Don, you definitely have THE BEST galleries on PBase! Love your work!

BTW, what happened to your forum?

Love your work, keep it up!

Hello Don,

Thanks very much for your compliment on my Clingendael-gallery and sorry that I did not notice your comment earlier.
Ofcourse I was very curious about the pictures you have taken and wow what a joy to look at them. I added you to my favorites, so that I can take a good look later on.

Kind regards from the Netherlands,
Guest 01-Aug-2004 16:13
Thanks for visiting my page and leaving a comment ( Glad oyu bumped into my site. I checked your gallery before deciding if I should be flattered, and to get a compliment from a man who shot those shots is great! good work!
Mary Bowles29-Jul-2004 17:53
Oh. Good Lord. Floral Arrays and Rhythms. What a gallery. Why haven't I found it before? I love the way you isolate a, sometimes tiny, feature of a plant or flower and let it speak. Super stuff. By the way, isn't "rhythms" a wonderful word. Seven letters and nary a vowel to be seen ;-)
Terry Urness 28-Jul-2004 03:35
I have included your galleries in my favorites, and I enjoy checking your recent additions. Thanks for sharing.
judy sidonie tillinger26-Jul-2004 19:29
Thanks for your comments on my grid gallery.
I've jsut met moochie and I think I'm in love.
Great shots but,let's face it,the bird can't take
a bad picture.

Melanie24-Jul-2004 13:08
Hi Don,
Actually, I like most of the photo's you have been uploading lately. It's just that to go & leave a message on all of them... LOL
Keep up the good work.

You visited my gallery and I took a visit and was awed by some of your photos. I like your abstract work. Great!
Andrew Leonard19-Jul-2004 06:46
Your images are simply breathtaking. You have done an amazing job at keeping the viewer hooked. Please take a visit to my gallery and leave a comment if you wish.

Excellent galleries. First impression: slashes of color, originality in your photo selections, artistic in design, and shows a great love for photography. Love it.

All the best.

Don, thank you for nice comment on my gallery.
Valeska12-Jul-2004 13:29
Don thanks for your comment on my PAD. I looked around in your galleries and I am very impressed. What a great job. It hard to choise witch gallerie I like the most, I think with the raindrops. I'm learning to photograph and I really want to know how you get the backgrounds of the flowerpics so diffuse. Is it PS works or is is the camera. I hope you want to share your secrets. :-)
Warm regards.
Guest 11-Jul-2004 07:21
Like some of the "themed" galleries that you put together. I'll keep coming back for more. :-)
Guest 11-Jul-2004 03:41

Don, you have some amazing galleries here and they are quite diverse in content. Your floral arrays and rhythms gallery is as spectacular of a collection as I have seen anywhere. Thanks for sharing these and thank for the encouragement.
Guest 03-Jul-2004 21:51

Your Floral Arrays and Beauty of Rain galleries are exceptional! The composition, color and clarity are perfect. You are really turning into a great photographer! Great Job!!!

Hi Don, Love your galleries. I can't find a "vote" button on the galleries I looked at nor are there any places to leave a comment on images I like.?. Melinda
Guest 22-Jun-2004 08:32
Hallo Don. Thanks for commenting on one of our Dog Diary images. I can't believe we managed to miss out on seeing your work on pbase up to know - you have such striking and beautiful shots! Our favourite is your Rain gallery - of course that got our vote.
Best wishes and keep up the good work.

Guest 17-Jun-2004 23:31
Hi Don, left a message in a forum or something, and I wanted to thank you. I have been doing this just shy of two years, and I found your galleries to be wonderful! I hope someday to be able to do as well of a job! Wow! ~pj
Chon Chat Tock17-Jun-2004 07:08
Hi Don, your postings in my Maldives gallery brought me here, and after going through some of your shots, I must admit you're a far far better photographer than I am. Very nice shot indeed! I like your 'cats' gallery most. Very well taken. Will definitely come back for more, and you're already in my list of favourites.

Keep it up!
Guest 16-Jun-2004 21:38
Hi Don! How can I begin to thank you for the kind words you wrote me on one of my photographs!!! It was a great honour that such a famous photographer like you paid attention to me!!!

Thanks for coming by my gallery today. Having viewed yours, I'm not worthy of the comments. The next two weeks will be full of images of India as I move from north to South. Glad you like the pics though

Hey, Don!

Thanks for stopping by my squirrels gallery. I checked out your photos and they got my vote. Very impressive. Btw, your squirrel images seem familiar. Do you participate in the Nikon forum on DPreview?
Guest 09-Jun-2004 00:52
Don, Your work has inspired me. I have been viewing your galleries for as long as I've been a Pbase member. Ira

Thanks for visiting my galleries. I enjoy your photography. I have updated my World War II Memorial which you might like better than the gallery you visited this morning.
Anna Pagnacco25-Apr-2004 04:33

You have some great work...I will come back to go through your galleries again.. Anna
Alli, Craig, + Girls 06-Apr-2004 04:07
It has been quite some time since I've viewed your galleries. I thought I better take another look after visiting with your wife this weekend. I really, really enjoyed your photos from the Japanese Gardens in Rockford. In fact, I loved them. You have quite an eye for this stuff. Absolutely beautiful! As always, keep up the great work. (I hope you draw my name for house could use some new artwork...hahaha!)
Guest 05-Apr-2004 14:56
Lots - and LOTS - of wonderful pictures! I do have one observation however --- I find that the dark type on the black backgrounds just about impossible to read. For me it distracts from an otherwise interesting site. (maybe it is just my old eyes however!)-
Marisa Livet16-Mar-2004 16:40
I agree with John. Fascinating and talented pictures, but too many, too much stuff, I’m getting lost among them, it’s a visual indigestion!
I don’t mean you have to post less pictures, if you like keeping this rhythm, you do a splendid work, but I have the impression I cannot follow it the way it would deserve…
Guest 11-Mar-2004 22:41
Don...When do you sleep, eat, go shopping, trips to the little boy's room, etc...etc...etc. Do you have a computer in the bathroom?

I love you images, just can't seem to be able to alot enough time to view all the ones that you upload each and every day. I don't mean for you to slow down, I just need to be able to somehow, be able to look as fast as you upload. Again, Fantastic images.
Julian Plant11-Mar-2004 19:59
Hi Don, thanks for stopping by my galleries and your kind words, I have returned to yours many times in the past and apart from the excellent quality I am always amazed at the sheer variety of your subject matter, how do you get the time lol? You make some of us feel very lazy - keep up the good work, best regards, Julian.
Dominic Krischke 10-Mar-2004 06:42
Hey Don, Been awhile since ive seen you. How ironic, i was just wondering what became of you as i drove by your old pad. Talked to ollie and then jensen and they mentioned your page. didnt know what it was based on but checked it out. Heard you have fish galore. Ill have to send you some pictures of my marine fish i took awhile back. anyhow enjoyed your pictures and im sure ill visit again.

take care
Guest 29-Feb-2004 17:46

Guest 20-Feb-2004 05:07
Don, I'm hugely flattered that you've stopped by my image galleries. Thanks so much for looking. I've visited your galleries a number of times and am continually inspired by what I see. I'll drink one for you, this weekend. Best regards, ~g
Torsten 13-Feb-2004 07:39
The themes are great, colorfull images. I'm just stunned.

In Germany there's nice website called: Made by fotographers (pro's and amateurs) mostly living in my home town or near it.
Guest 13-Feb-2004 05:34
Hi Don - you recently left a message in my galleries and I thought I would return the favour. I really enjoyed your colour extravaganzas and am motivated to do something along those lines - patterns in nature maybe. Excellent galleries - thanks for sharing.

Tammy 12-Feb-2004 04:02
I fell in love with your pictures. I wish that I could have photos like that of my two cats. I would hang them all over. I'm amazed by your work. I don't usually sign guestbooks. I just wanted to tell you that you have awesome pictures!!! Thank you for sharing.

Awesome gallery and one I have been watching since I added you to my favorites some time ago....Anyway, happy shooting and happy cat cuddling! :o)

Hey Don,

Thanx for commenting some of my pictures.

Your galleries are also very cool ...
In particular I like the "Goths and Punks", "Shades of Green",
"Graffity"* and the "Fishes" ... and the "Girls"
of course ...

excellent Graffities are.

Hy Don,

thank you very much for your praise on my guestbook.
Whenever I can make so good picture like you I would be lucky.

I love you wonderful galleries.

Best regards,

FastUno01-Feb-2004 23:35
I love your fish shots! Those are my favorite kind of pictures to take. I know how hard it's to capture them because:
1)They constantly move
2)Usually too dark to take them
3)If flash is used, unwanted post flash

Perhaps we can collaborate & learn from each other. Check out my pbase site & let me know what you think

Thanks for the inspiration.
Nella Pascal01-Feb-2004 21:29
Really amazing galleries you have. Absolutely love the Walls galleries. Great pieces of art. Thank you for sharing them. Nella

Hi Don,

Cool Cats....
If you interested, I would like to give you a gift. I created a website where you can upload a photo and put it onto a few different items... If you go to my website and create something you like... email me cart number and I will send it to you the item as my gift to such a great cat lover...

Guest 17-Jan-2004 23:13
Don, I was led to your site thru a post on a forum. Made me laugh at myself, just great. By following the threads I ended up here. Absolutley stunning work. Thanks
Guest 16-Jan-2004 07:13

Tonya 16-Dec-2003 23:22

I am a squirrel lover and have an extended family of 6 that live in my and my neighbors' trees. I love to watch these cute little guys and I nailed a dish on the split rail fence that once in a while I will leave grapes or nuts in. A heavily pregnant 'mama' squirrel built a huge nest in one of my pine trees.

I am alternating your lovely squirrel photos and placing one a week as my computer wallpaper. Whenever I look at the cute little guy starring that week, it makes me smile. Thanks for making my workday brighter!

By the way, my ex-boyfriend hated squirrels. That's one of the reasons I dumped him.

Hi Don, Thanks a lot for you comment in my "unclassified" gallery. Means a lot coming from a bloke who's work I enjoy greatly. You have almost too much to comment on, so many gems and nice surprises!

Hi Don,

Time for me to leave a comment in the guestbook of someone who has been on my "favorite" list for quite some time! I've long admired the very diverse set of galleries that you've been building, and it's hard for me to say which is my favorite. "Photoshopping Autumn Colors", "Dripping Paint" and "Goths and Punks" have hung on my screen for a long time, but I also like "A Photographic Journey."

For some of us at Pbase, our "photographic journey" has taken us from an inital hobby status, to a bit of a lifestyle -- a way of seeing the world and sharing it with others. It's a very involving and time consuming process. The passion that you have for this activity is reflected not only in your craftsmanship, which is excellent, but also in your choice of subjects and how you treat them. Always a pleasure to visit your site -- and your world.

Though Pbase is primarily about photo sharing, I've also begun to read the forums and I am quite thankful for the effort that you have put into answering the tech related questions. I'm relatively new to the digital finish and distribution aspects of photography and I appreciate your sharing your knowledge about these aspects.

If a gallery makes me stay there for any length of time, it's probably for a reason, and has earned my vote, as many of your galleries have. It's a great feature of Pbase, but there is also a value in your galleries that goes way beyond any vote total or hit list. It's that immeasurable quality that compels me to send you a note, pick up my camera and try to do better work!

Hi Don,
I'm new to photography and have thoroughly enjoyed viewing your galleries. A willingness to share your knowledge with others and your only requirement you seems to be that they too enjoy photography is refreshing.

The question I have for you is regarding backdrops for small objects. Object sizes varying from one inch square to one foot. What kind of material should I use? A piece of black velvet or something of less texture? All shots would be done indoors under standard fluorescent or incandescent lighting. I assume there must be a few standard kind of cloths for this.

Thank you,

Thank you for your comments on my gallery. I will have to come back when I have more time to go through your work. I can tell you that from what I have seen so far I know I will find much that I like.

Dear Mr. Northup,

This is the image that I'm interested in using in my design (22076126). If you would be willing to give written permission to use this photograph then that would be wonderful - we would like to print the past-cards in the next two days. Although, we are willing to wait longer for your reply because the image is so fitting.

Please let me know either way.

Best regards,
Andrea Preston

Dear Mr. Northup,

This photograph is beautiful! This is a shot in the dark, but it is perfect for the post-cards I am designing for a friend who is just starting her own business. I was curious if you would consider giving me written permission to use this image. She will be printing a mere 500 cards. Otherwise I will be using a more generic photo that is not half as beautiful as this one.

Best regards,

You have really found a great tool there with the photograph matted with a blurred version of itself. Well done. Would love to know what you did to acheive that.

Hi Don,
Great photos! I stumbled across this website today and enjoyed looking at your photos of Rockford. I live in Freeport, but work in Rockford, so many of your shots are familiar. I'm thinking of taking some family portraits in Anna Page park when the leaves start changing, it will be here sooner than I think! Once again, nice work.
Guest 29-Aug-2003 19:28
I like your pictures, We are going to be selling art prints soon, maybe you would be interested.

Hi Don. Thanks for the comments about my gallery. All are flower shots. Part of my inspiration was the Hubble shots. Since I can't go "out there", I'll stay here and explore other parts of the universe – and have some fun creating my own while I'm at it. :-) – Tom

Hey I browsed your portfolio and I find it pretty interesting. I see you like digital art pretty much. This is not something very popular in the photographers' World but I think this is part of art as well as photography and I enjoy it a lot. Nice work.

Thank you so much for visiting mine.

Hi Don:
Thank you for your recent comments concerning my pencil portrait gallery. The tutorial or steps that I followed to achieve these looks can be found at this link: The only thing that I do differently, is I do not use the unsharp mask step. I set my history brush to the channel mixer step to bring some of the eyes. Hope this helps you. If you have any other questions, please feel free to contact me.

As for Retouch Pro...I've seen the incredible work done over there. I don't think I could restore myself out of a paper bag but on your invitation, I may take a plunge.

Thanks again.

Guest 26-Jul-2003 06:17
