xtoph: i have not given anyone permission to 'download original' files of my photographs. dpr's inclusion of a dedicated button for this is bizarre, and suggests that i somehow do give such permission.

i am aware that people can copy my photos, but there's a difference between that being technically possible and it being actively encouraged and tacitly approved.

please change this. and shame on dpr, after facebook's photographer unfriendly changes (including a 'download original' button we have no control over) and the backlash against them, you would think that a photographer-centered site would have handled this differently.

Thanks Marty (aka Walter White). You made my day!

@xtoph I don't agree: most of people do not really care in having the original picture for pro work. Some pro people do. Those pro people would know anyway how to download an original pic, either from the new or from the old interface.

In doubt, always upload a reduced version of your work.

Excellent composition, focus & bokeh, exposure, focal lens choice.

aja2: Not sure I should ask this... but what I wanna know is: what's in the jar? Neat idea but I think their site is going to crash any second now.
