being in terrible mood today, I could not sleep for almost all night. So  I sat down and created this. I used Photoshop and 5 photos of buildings I took in Koeln, Germany, during my recent business trip there. I  am sure many of you know that feeling.

Another example of your outstanding work.Props. Keep it up.

You probably don't recall me, but I promote your site with my personal site, because I mostly use your wallpapers as backgrounds. I still check your page - daily - and download your artworks, which astound me with their simplicity. Anyone can take the long route, but "laconica brevitas" is much more interesting. I know, I write poetry :). Keep the imagination flowing, Blaz, Slovenia

Masterpiece! Greetings from Texel, The Netherlands

Wonderfull Vlad, just right. Once i saw the mail, i checked out the wallpaper. And man, "i can really feel that dreary cannot sleep, what to do ?" feeling on seeing it. One of your many masterpieces no doubt. Keep the good work going. (Y)

Me encanta tu obra YYYY

Tanya long ago
The only thing I know about art is what I like, and so far, Vlad, I love your work. I'm an incurable insomniac and this piece jumped out and shouted at me, "This is you at 3:00 am! Dark and alone, except for the hint of hope, given from the often shrouded moonlight." You have found a way to put feelings on display for everyone to see. You are truly gifted.

An extraordinary work. Many thanks.

Ferri long ago
Second only to your Mont Saint Michel (Dark). This work so perfectly captures the cold, dreary, and also eerie loneliness of long, empty nights. Masterfully done. Thank-you for sharing your gift in these inspired works.

Armelle long ago
Very, very nice ! Sincerely ! You are definitively the best, Vlad, sure !!! (L)
