fran.cesca, we love this. As you saw, we put a cropped version on the front page.
When I went to pull the photo, though, I saw it was a vertical. To preserve the dimensions of a vertical photo, upload it into the BODY of the post rather than using ADD MEDIA. To do that, put your cursor where you want in the body of the post, then click the little photo icon on the editing tool bar, and follow the instructions. Your photo will appear as it does now, withOUT the crop that happens if you do it through ADD MEDIA.
Hope that's clear as mud in April.
Thank you for that tip! I hope to be posting more art soon.
coolio, and, as jbird notes, in this case particularly you HAVE to go vertical to fully understand the title and intricacy of the visual art. ... I should add, too, that the method of uploading images via the ADD MEDIA function is designed for horizontal photos and automatically activates the slideshow widget if there are more than one. For that reason, we have to have the photos conform to one shape which is why they are "cropped" to be horizontal. In the case of a vertical that means, the top and bottom are "missing" though there are no actual changes to the original photo -- it's all about what gets displayed.
Anyway, so glad to see your art and, if you have HIGH RES versions, also include the high-res file in the download field of the post so YWP can use for further print publication. (High Res being 200dpi or higher for color. 180 works with b&w)
I LOVE the upside down photo in the background of this one. It is hard to get a collage style like this to work with just one image (or with many images) without it looking grossly forced, but you have succeeded! You should be proud. :)
As Susan, gg, and irishjayne have noted in their comments, your combination of detail and simplicity is captivating and fresh. I love these. Thanks for sharing. I cannot wait to see how they look in The Voice / publication!
Thank you so much!
