Fabulous image Andy, beautiful tones and light...

I'm so sorry you are not going to be uploading anymore, thats a shame and I really do hope its not because of one or two of the clowns on the GEA forum?

Hi Andy. I just read Wolfy's comment and wondered what happened in the GEA forum.

EPZ's gonna suffer a loss once you go. But I'm sure your reason is an important one and I won't pry. Feel free to PM whenever, alright?

A deliciously lush and golden image you're leaving us with...although I'd like to be optimistic and think you'll be back again someday Smile

Take care, man.

Having not been on here recently myself I'm a little bit suprised that you are leaving Andy. As is obvious from all of the posts you will be missed. I'd just like to say thank you for all of the comments you were kind enough to give me and everyone else and we will miss your amazing shots.

Good Luck.

" Hey Andy" just found out that you are no longer uploading your images, which is a bloody shame.
You produce fine quality images Andy, and your support and encouragement was always there, I for one will miss that.
And what a parting capture, Stunning.
All the best Andy Smile ..............................Rob

Beautiful tastefully Christmas type of image, love the warm tones and great detail.

Wherever your 'moving on' takes you, I hope it continues to feed your creativity, and you occasionally remember your friends here on site.
Good luck and best wishes,

Before scrolling down I added the image to the shortlist - and wasn't surprise to see the row of awards you've already got. It is a fantastic image Andy - sheer gold and the red bg adds to the allover noble looks.
Well done!

Yesterday I was in a hurry and didn't read what you wrote. As I came back to give you my award I got aware that you leave us. A pitty, you will be missed here, but I can understand. Daily presence on epz asks a lot of time and we need some "leave" from time to time. I hope you'll be back someday, to give us more of your wonderful work to admire.
Take care, enjoy what ever you are doing.
I wish you a Merry Christmas and a healthy, prosperous and good New Year 2012.
May the sun always shine on your path dear friend!

Ah Andy, such a great loss to EPZ Sad. I've not been around much myself lately, so only just found out you've left. When I finally get round to returning properly myself it will not be the same without your wonderful images. You will be leaving a gap that will be very difficult to fill. Best of luck Andy wherever you share your photography - and I sincerely hope you come back here one day. Thank you for all your support of my uploads, it has always been so valued.
