"Your images are amazing!"
Donata Wenders, photographer & wife of the movie director Wim Wenders
"I looked at your photos Petar. I like the fact that you are photographing very different subjects, with different techniques. This is the advantage of living in a place with not too much competition: in a capital like Paris, London or New York, young photographers are encouraged to stick to what they believe to be a style, but what is often not much more than a few tricks. While by trying many different ways, you may slowly reach the point where you say more about yourself than about the objects or the landscapes or the people you photograph – and this is where photography really interests me.. "
legendary photographer Frank Horvat

"I stumbled across your piece "FIUME" and was really into it - The imperfections of the building really gives this piece a lot of character. I think you have some really impressive talent. I know a lot of members who would appreciate seeing your work and I think you would get some good feedback and exposure. I love your art."
Jack Wood, "Heel Press"
"I checked out the International Press Network site - your pics are beautiful. The story you wrote about the old people was incredible. There are times when what I see cannot be photographed. The emotion of the moment makes it impossible. You captured this in what you wrote. Thanks so much for being so real .. "

I know Opatija since childhood, but I've never experienced it like now .. watching your photographs I had a feeling to walk down my bellowing streets, I can feel every whisper of the wind in the park, even I heard the silence of the sun coming up the horizon and the waves who cuddle the rocks ..
Thank you for enabling me on this distance to again feel the scent of my precious home .. "
