Kees and I share an understanding of the fascination of the drop. I am always amazed by his refractions and freeze-frame falling water. Along with many, may other flickrites, I hold his work in high regard and look forward to the next creation. Congratulations on a fine stream, Kees. Thanks for bringing the beauty!

Kees really works wonders with cameras. His work is amazing- especially his macro shots! He knows how to get the best colors possible and knows how to get the greatest detail. Truly one of the best!

I discovered Kees in explore in the very first day I opened my account with Flickr. I was so impressed with his images that for a moment I pondered to quit my photography career. But then I thought I can always learn something from him! Or at least, have the pleasure to admire his works.

A TRUE TEACHER OF THE PHOTOGRAPHY, THE GENTLEMAN OF THE WATER! A TRUE PROFESSIONAL, A PROFESSIONAL!!

~a very talented male photographer~

There are great photographers and then there are people like !.keesssss.! This man sets the bar for anyone who wants to bring photography to a level not seen by anyon without the heart and soul for the art of beauty. I am awed and inspired. Truely beautiful images found in the everyday details many of us pass over.

What can I say about Kees. He can do things with a camera that I didn't know could be done. His photostream is simply brilliant and I regularly return for some photographic inspiration. Keep up the good work and thanks for sharing.

You have great sense of color. A true artist.

all of keesssss' images have this incredible amount of vibrant colors. The use of a bright red/orange seems to be a repeating theme in these pictures and i believe it works quite well. Not only do the pictures have a great amount of composition, but they are just as vibrant with content!

A true artist! A visionist with a deep passion. His images reveal a complete new art of seing the world.

Kees is a true photographer, not just some guy with a camera. His images are a delight to me, not just because they are skillfully conceived and beautifully crafted, but because they illustrate his view of the world....and that is the true art of the photographer. I value his generous encouragement, and sincerely respect and admire the unique eye of this talented independent thinker.
