JJ's photographic style is unique and inspirational. He has a wonderfully creative eye for composition and a varied and exciting portfolio. I am particularly in awe of his NYC cityscapes, as it is a place I long to visit and I love to see his perspectives on this fabulous city. His emotive and thought-provoking people on the street series reflects his incredible all-round talent. He is also the reigning "King of Reflections"...his reflection shots are truly amazing.His Daily Challenge uploads are ingeniously creative. He is a marvellous Flickr friend, supportive and loyal, and I am so glad to have become acquainted with him and his fabulous photostream :-)

I'm glad to see that I am one of MANY testimonials for JJ. We are so grateful to have him on flickr. He has a kind heart and he always takes the time to generously comment on your stream. His photos always manage to brighten my day, with his Brooklyn Bridge shots that are nothing short of obsessive, in a great way, to smiling factory buildings and many other great works of art. The colors and the reflections that are featured in most of his shots are awe-inspiring.....He is truly one of my favorite photogs on this site and I don't know what we'd do without him on flickr, so here's to one of the best...

He is quite the traveler, and seems to find the most interesting photographs wherever He is at the moment. JJ's photography is of the highest level. As a contact, I don't think JJ has ever missed commenting on My humble works. And with His comments, He is always supportive and encouraging. I consider JJ a friend. I will probably never meet JJ, I feel if We did meet, We'd have a pint and talk pictures!!! Do Yourself a favor and tour JJ's photostream. I am especially fond of His New Zealand set. Actually found a new way to spell class "JJ" Noble
