Is there such a way to disable the 'download' feature?
I ask, because if there ever was a set of images that NEED to be posted at a way-higher image size: it would be these of The Eden Series.
At least 1920x1080 would be preferable to fully appreciate this image.
Sometimes bigger IS better.

I'm glad you enjoy the Eden series! As much as I would like to release higher resolution images, I cannot because of the threat of art theft.

You know I'm going to say it; so here goes:

When you've had your work sold and profited off of by strangers online as have I, you may become less cavalier about "art thievery".

Heh - I've been looking at other pictures of the Portland Japanese Gardens (have recently started spending time there) and I took a very similar picture ([link] if you're curious.) Small world?

At any rate, the photo. This feels a bit... tinny to me? I think it's because so much of the photo is on the bright end of midtones. Maybe if you had used a faster exposure, so that the photo was overall darker, or increased the contrast slightly such that more of the midtones would be darker?

Oh my goodness! I just stumbled upon your Eden Series pictures and totally fell in love.. Not only that, I gasped when I found out that this is from the Japanese garden in Portland! :love: I've been there before!

I absolutely love these pictures. Just... just amazing.. :faint:

Only some basic contrast adjustments :) The actual hue and vibrancy of the colors are completely unaltered. Thank you :)

Wow, this is amazing!! the colors are sooooo beautiful!! I just can't stop staring at it....<3

Would you mind if I painted this? It would look slightly different, but you'll still be able to immediately tell that I used your photograph as reference.... please?

Honestly, I've already painted it, I just had to make sure you were okay with it before I posted it anywhere!
