Hello Luis,
You have been a vital part of this unique TN family for over five years, and for this I am thankful. You have been a true friend and mentor to all of us who love nature and photography. Your beautiful images have touched many hearts and minds in ways that only God knows.
As you present this last photo of a hummingbird, I am once again reminded of your gifted talents and love of nature.
God Bless,

Hola Luis,
Please give Lidia a hug for me, I said my piece in the forum so look there. Please, please stay in touch with me if you don't change your mind.

let's not create a drama here dear Luis....I was not your biggest supporter, but definitely your work deserve an applause ....NO Louis... I really do believe that you should stay! But hey, you have your reasons, so "Sé feliz en tu camino amigo" ...fly away...and keep your photographic spark flashing! All the best in life ....

P.S. The image of this hummingbird is without a shadow of a doubt one of the best I have ever seen ...Bravo Louis!

Thanks for sharing some of beautiful images of yours,
this one is no exception..your philosophy of life is mine too..enjoy life and photography where ever you are...

Bom dia Luis!
Esta foto não pode ser de quem se despede.
É por demais fantástica.Brilhante mesmo.Dispenso as usuais críticas fotográficas e digo-lhe simplesmente que seria óptimo poder continuar a contar consigo neste site por que vejo que é uma pessoa fantástica,sensível e precisamos de si.De resto, ficar por dentro, não desistir, é a forma mais empenhada de mostrar as nosssas convicções.
Um grande abraço

Hello Luis,
I am sorry for your decision: thanks for all your fantastic image! This shot is simply WONDERFUL!

SOOoooo thankful you posted this because don't think would have discovered all your awesome shots. Making time to investigate now and you have given me some GREAT IDEAS!!!

As you can see, you will be missed. Photographers are the BEST passion living souls aren't they? Sensitive, perceptive, creative......dang we are just awesome. hehe
The key is not letting our ego get in the way from learning...discovering and truly living. ((hugs))

Hallo Luis
I really miss you around on the site, and with images as this last one of yours, it is no wonder why. You where a great photographer and without your images there is a definite void in the gallery. Please, please reconsider to return. It will be a great day not only for me, but for many others as well.
Warmest wishes.
