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?

An oustandingly beautiful still life to leave us with. Deeply sorry to learn we are to be without you and your amazing images. To say i'll miss them is an understatement. Good luck and all my very best wishes.



Wonderful light, textures and those fabulous copper tones you are so good at producing, Andy. Very sorry to hear that you are moving on. You will be missed.


Beautiful still life. Such lovely light and colour in this Andy. I am so sorry to hear you are leaving, I know you will be missed by many including myself..............Sandy


This is beautiful photography Andy, you will be much missed but my very best wishes go with you!



Andy a truly impressive image. Detail and colour excellent and of cause great composition. I have only know you for a short while but it has been a pleasure seeing your pictures coming regularly in. Anyhow a lovely picture to what I really hope is not the last. Take care. WesternRed.


Beautiful arrangement, lighting, composition and detail.


I have to agree with Rog and all the others that its sad you are leaving.. especially as its likely to be down to comments made in the forums...
keep smiling and congratulations on your local achievements this week Grin



Thank you for a great time, this is so excellent with the light colours and composition


21 Nov 2011 - 6:30 AM

I will miss you Andy, i know i am not in the position to comment that because i took a "rest" too but i really hope to see you back here...
A wonderful gift, thank you for your beautiful pictures, kindly comments and friendship!


Very sad news, Andy, I sincerely hope that we will see the return of your stunning images again one day, you are going to be sorely missed by many.
You are leaving us with a mos beautiful still life, too, and in the colours that you so obviously adore, all the very best to you. Carol


Always sad when somebody of real quality leaves Andy, maybe a change of place will bring the rewards you deserve, for whatever reason you leave, it's a shame, we can ill afford to lose good people from our site and especially when they are such good photographers too.


a beautiful gift crafted by nature and presented so well here.

21 Nov 2011 - 7:28 AM

Fabulous shot Andy, I am so sorry to hear your leaving Epz, I shall miss your wonderful images and of course your support for mine, take care my friend and all the best for the future.

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.



Unfortunately this site is losing too many good photographers. It's a shame you are going and trust you will consider after your break. I know it interferes a lot with home life and the time involved.
Take care with whatever you are going to do and pleas let me know if you come across another good photography site.
You leave us with a cracker.
A bit early but have a super Christmas.


Sorry to here you are leaving Andy, will miss your work, with is alway of a fine standard. Will what for you elsewhere

It's going to be a very long time before EPZ finds a Sunset Meister like yourself, Andy. I wish you all good things in your new ventures. You have supported so many EPZ-ers. What goes around always comes around, so Be Lucky! You will be, that's for sure.

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.
