Yvette is a wonderful woman full of positive energy. Her photography spans over a wide array of different subjects, and some of her images are among the most popular of the entire 1x site. Yvette has captured very special moments, with great intensity, and her pictures are like windows right into the souls of the people she photographs. Yvette's strong dedication has meant a lot for the development of this community, and she participates in every aspect of it, uploading extraordinary photos, commenting, writing critique, participating in weekly theme, doing curation and working as a book editor. Not the least, she has done a tremendous effort to organize a big meet up in Bruges, to get 1x photographers from many different countries together and have a lot of fun. She is a very warm and kind person who always spreads joy around her.

First of all Yvette is a strong photographer in different styles. I admire especially her mastering of the light, mainly in her beautiful B/W work, and of course her photography of children. In contrast to the stylized rendering of many children photographers, her photos are fully based on expression and emotions.
Besides for her photography I also would like to endorse Yvette for her dedication to 1x and the time she spends not only at the site but mainly for the site. You see that 1x is for her not just a site, where you upload photos but a real social platform to make contacts with others photographers. Appreciation and support of others is a key factor for her.
In the meantime I had the opportunity to meet Yvette personally as an inspiring and warm personality
Endorsing for skills in Mood photography
Yvette has the gift to bring mood in most of her black and white pictures, as well in landscapes as portraits.

what i especially appreciate in yvette is her warm appreciation for others; be it in photographical aspects, or human aspects. Always there to motivate and support. A great personality.
and this caring personality allows her to take every theme in photography with ease because she can penetrate the subject and make skill- & thought-full images based in vision

I just discovered today that I had not left an endorsement for you - age is playing tricks with my mind! So, I'm here to rectify this omission, right now. I also noticed today that you are nearing the 80,000 mark in curating comments - I know personally how much time and effort that takes. I'm hoping that with all the Level 2 endorsements you have, they will take a few of these and roll them into a Level 3 and have you become the first L8 curator. I also hope someone up in the higher echelons reads this and thinks it's a good idea. To choose from a drop-down menu what to endorse you for is not easy. I picked the first one on the list. Indeed you are a truly talented photographer, with a great eye and vision, and ability to convey mood especially in your black and white images. You master light exceptionally well - it is something to emulate, and I find your work very inspiring. In addition to your talents as a photog, you also have amazing people skills; take for example the wonderful interviews of photographers you currently are presenting in the blog. You are also very encouraging towards others, reflected in the comments you leave on people's images. 1x has a diamond on their team, they, and each member of 1x is fortunate to have you.

Yvette, I would like to offer an endorsement for a category that does not exist. This category would be community chairwoman. You arrived at lx more recently than most of the people I know here and you came with open arms.

You are a positive person, and spread good feelings. How you are able to do all that you do and still work is beyond my imagination. So clearly, you are devoted to 1x, and to the Founders and to its success. Your comments are not just many, but they are kind. I imagine your voice to be sweet, and if you were my neighbor you would ask what I needed and help me.

You have made many new friends here and this is evidence to me that kindess matters and people have noticed. You are a generous woman, and that is mostly from observation, as we really do not know each other well.

I wish for you, good health for you and your family.

Yvette is an extraordinary woman. Not only that she is a gifted photographer, she is also a woman for each always has a kind word. Your comments on images always have a meaning and help the photographer more.

Yvette's images always present a great deal of drama: they either tell some stories, illustrate certain moody, or simply give you impressive visual impacts. I especially enjoy her B&W images and have learned so much knowledge from her. I greatly appreciate Yvette's support and help for my photography on 1x. I endorse Yvette for her great talent and skills as a photographer. I look forward to see more Yvette's images on 1x.

No doubt, Yvette is one of the best artist/photographer in this wonderful community!
I already admire her work long before she joined 1x. She is a multi talented photographer. Her excellent skill is not only limited in lanscape genre, but also powerful in human interest or documentary field. Beside her awesome ability, she is also a very kind person and very humble.

If i think: support + tallent + photogrpahic skills + vision + appreciation for others + great personality + helping & motivate others = ???..., if Yvette were not here in 1X there would be no possible answer and that equation would be an impossible one. But she is here, and for all that, for making that equation possible and with her name in the final, i really thank you and hope you manage a way for the result of that equation continues the same for a long long time.

Yvette is one of the first person I met here in 1x, who encouraged me a lot and makes me feel warm around at a new enviroment.

Yvette has such a charming characters that she attracts people’s attention easily with her artistic pictures that carry her own styles one can recognized immidiately.

Not only presenting her own wonderful works but also helps others in the group to get familier with the functions, Yvette writes so detailed curation notes without any reservation, and that, need a big heart behind.

My full respect to dear Yvette who is such a kind person beyond a great artist.

I'm endorsing Yvette for her skills as a photographer, as well as for his kindness and respect here on 1X. Yvette is very talented with all genres of photography. I don't think there is anything she can't do! I find Yvette very approachable. She is very eager to help others. I am always amazed at how she finds the time to comment on the photos uploaded from the people she follows, as well as making sure she comments on the published images. Yvette's a huge asset to 1X!

I am always reading Yvette's critiques in detail and sometimes over. It is one of my driving forces to curate images, seeing her opinions. But endorsing as a curator was a tough choice since she excels in other categories and should be endorse in more than one. Thank you for your time, effort and degree of caring for others work.

Actually, I knew this great lady Yvette rather late. I was became attached to her after seeing and admiring his work entitled Crazy Kites. Since then I have continued to follow and learned every single works from her when I have time. Yvette was very friendly and kind-hearted person. One of 1x members who I respect once admired the most. Her works are very inspiring, full of soul, with great techniques and skills to cover some incredible stories and wonderful messages she tried to deliver through her pictures. That’s all I can say about this wonderful lady. 1x was lucky to have her on our community. I really hope to meet her one day. Forgot : I just knew that she is a brilliant interviewer too.

I'm still confused by how to endorse her. She is really a "full package". But in my humble opinion, I thought her knowledges and experiences since analogue era are there, at the same level as curators.

Here I do something not really needed. I write endorsement of Yvette's works! She is one of these photographers whose works speak so strongly, that she does not need such endorsements. Still, I love Yvette's portfolio, and I write this despite everyone around me knowing these facts well. Her way of seeing things is quite unusual. Capturing nature, people, life scenes, comes to her naturally, yet in a special, very personal, creative way. That is what makes the difference between a good photo, and a masterpiece. Thank you Yvette for sharing your vision of this world with us!
Endorsing for skills as a curator
I would like to endorse Yvette for more than one reasons. However, let me say something about her as a curator. Yvette is not only insightful but also down to the earth. Some curators do not hit the points, and some others use big words that confuse people more than help them. By contrast, Yvette talks about specific issues (big and small) with plain language, and often with suggestions that can be easily applied. While she has a lot knowledge in theory and in the fields, she speaks with modest and polite tones. One thing I apprecaite a lot is her keen sense about the details. She sees unnecessary messy elements and advise people how to improve. I appreciate this because artwork is not something causual, and everything needs to be perfect if possible. Unfortunately, many people do not have training in art therefore do not pay attention to the details. Yvette helps them to see these issues more than any one else.
Endorsing for skills as a photographer
What I like most in Yvette's photos is the care and attention to the exposure and the composition, as well as the variety of genres that she experiences. She has a lot of followers because she's a talented photographer, but also because has a very gentle way to express her opinion.
Endorsing for skills as a photographer
Dear Yvette, you are very detailed look at the photos and things that make you successful, that's what I like about you, I really like the results of your work exceptional, "taste" you are very high. salute for you. greetings from me.
Endorsing for skills as a curator
I would like to endorse Yvette for her skills as a curator. It's already a given that her photographic skills are above par, as exemplified by her images. Her comments are always well thought of and sincere. When she has curated my work, there is always encouragement for the good elements and there is never a disparaging remark that would make me feel discouraged or inadequate as a relative newcomer here on 1x. I believe that aside from being a good photographer, she has the ability to nurture those who have not quite reached her level of excellence yet and for her peers, she lifts them up to a higher standard. It is rare for an outstanding artist to be as generous as she is. Yvette, thank you always for your words of encouragement and for sharing the world as seen through your eyes.
Endorsing for skills as a photographer
I'm sure Yvette would not mind being referred to as the Grand Dame de - She has an amazing ability to produce extraordinary photos on a consistent basis, combining photographic skill and creativity, rising to any challenge, as well as acting as a lynchpin for the 1x community, actively engaging with members, posting the mostly wonderfully kind comments and insightful critiques, and generally being a delight to interact with. I can honestly say it is a thrill to receive a comment on a picture from her, and a thrill to see her latest work.

I must recognize that Yvette is one of my favourite photographes becausee her work is so complete and so full of style.I have rarely seen somebody that can cover with his work so many different style.I like also very much her b&w work,her landscapes and also her portraits.
Yvette is very warm in her appreciations regarding the others and she supports us very much.The conclusion is that she is an extrordinary woman,a great curator and a great photographer.

C'est vraiment un honneur de venir écrire ces quelques mots pour toi Yvette.

Ce matin je pensais à la photographie, aux photographes et je pensais à toi, à ton univers, je me disais que visiter ta belle galerie, c'est pousser la porte d'un petit musée où l' on se retrouve bousculé par les émotions, on entre dans une atmosphère qui inspire et qui accroche visuellement car il y a une belle maîtrise de la façon dont les couleurs sont utilisées artistiquement.

Des photos du monde, des enfants, des sourires, des larmes. Tous ces moments de la vie...Quand une photo me fait monter les larmes aux yeux, ça vaut toutes les techniques et les appareils photos du monde, parce que la magie, l'atmosphère, le message, ce n'est pas l'appareil photo, c'est toi Yvette. Dans tes photos il y a des mots et seuls les personnes qui aiment et respectent les gens, le monde, qui en assument la beauté ou la tristesse sont capables de transmettre un message, une grande émotion dans l'image.

Beaucoup de sensibilité, tu es à la fois touchée et émerveillée, ça se sent. Tu es connecté avec la scène avant de la prendre en photo. Tu es à l'intérieur de l'image.
Je respecte beaucoup la photographe mais aussi la belle personne que tu es Yvette.

Not only is Evette a great photographer, her comments always has a high quality that makes the photographer, as well as the reader, a better photograph. One can tell that's not just a comment, but an advice and compliment on how to improve.

There's really not a easy task to say anyting negateice, so let's not.

Best regards!

It's a pity one can not choose to endorse Yvette for all these skills at once. Her photography is very much varied yet she manages to convey the soul in each and every of her pictures. Something that makes a picture different from 'the' picture you go back to again and again. She is also a very sunny person, always gentle and positive, writing thoughtful and encouraging comments, spending her precious time to brighten up someone's day. She is a person one would like to have around. The unique combination of fantastic photo skills and the total absence of up-brow. Hope to be able to enjoy both her photography and her personality for a very long time. She is a real gem for the site.

J´aime la galerie d´Yvette parceque son âme se reflète dans ses photos.
Et de plus, elle a toujours un mot gentil qui te fait sourire.
Ses paysages sont magnifiques, et plus est, elle les rend encore plus beaux.

Quant aux photos, où les enfants sont rois, tu les regardes une, deux ou plusieurs fois, et c´est comme si elles te parlaient.

Enfin, une grande amie lointaine virtuelle, mais qui m´accompagne toujours quand je suis perdue par ici, :)

Un grand Merci Yvette.

A no more existing internet community for photographers brought us together in 2005. At once we were very interested in each others work, met and became close friends, who are not afraid of being critical about each others work. If a photo isn't that good, we say it. If it is a good one, we say it. We are not giving an applause because we are friends. I greatly admire Yvette's photography, especially her photos of children. She really knows how to catch the essence of being a child. I also admire Yvette's passion for commenting on the work of her fellow photographers. Her comments are always positive, gentle and substantive.

I like to endorse Yvette for her great portfolio! She manages the B/W photography as a state of art! When I started in 1x, the first picture I saw from her was a colored one: “Racing against the shadow …”.
