Welcome to this week's "Member of the Week" post. Every week I will post the name of a member and a link to their profile. This will be our Member of the Week. Go have a look at their profile page and/or portfolio. Enjoy their photos, leave some comments and most of all post one or two of their photos in this thread so others can see them and enjoy them. If you like you can also write a little blurb saying why you enjoy this member's photos.

This week's Member of the Week is ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_N.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21_N.gif', '/') + 1) . ' jmritz. And here are a couple of his photos.

John is a great artist, to pick a couple of his work and say "I like these" is impossible..
02/02/2014 02:35:06 PM · #3
So many to choose from. His entire portfolio is stunning. John is one of my all time favourite photographers on DPC. His photographs get under my skin and refuse to leave and i can't think of higher praise than that.

I have almost given up picking among and commenting on John's work: too busy wiring my jaw back up. Just when you think you have got to the bottom of things, visually, John draws back a new curtain. There is not a gallery big enough, but there should be.
02/02/2014 09:04:10 PM · #15
John is one of the most devoted photographer on this site. You might not notice but he posts with extraordinary regularity - rain or shine, comments or not, praises or insults - who cares?! The mark of a true artist.

There are images that amaze and satisfy me profoundly
