The Photographer's Barnstar
Because your technical comments of high quality, always detailed and precise that have helped me to be a better photographer. I give you this humble recognition that has no more value than you can give, because your help is priceless. Thanks The Photographer 11:44, 9 May 2017 (UTC)
The Reviewer Barnstar
For your great reviews on the FPC page. I have learned much from your hints on the white balance, the composition etc. of photos (e.g. from this critical one – since then I try to avoid distracting prominent shapes near the borders in my photos). Often they make clear in a few words what I have somehow sensed but have not seen clearly. Your contributions therefore contribute a great deal to making the FPC page not (just) a competition for featured images, but a great place to learn. --Aristeas (talk) 15:48, 15 June 2021 (UTC)
Nice photo! Charlie fong (talk) 00:48, 24 August 2022 (UTC)
