PS The image will be removed first thing tomorrow morning (4/3.) There is no indication of a copyright on this image as I'm sure my webmaster would not have used it if there were. You could have simply contacted me without all of this negative commentary over a simple misunderstanding.
Dear Diente de Lion, I had someone else design my site and had no idea this image was stolen. I am happy to pay the fee to keep the artwork or I can remove the image immediately if you prefer. I would appreciate if it you would cease and desist about the negative commentary about my website.
I was sitting here trying to figure out what to say. I was thinking about Persian rugs. You look at a Persian rug and you think hey nice colors, nice patterns. So should I come in here and say that? Pretty colors, nice patterns, this is great etc. Everyone leaves that silly nonsense. Add a little information about the figure/face hand/heart... say "wow great contrasts" and move on? Okay so bundle all of that into whatever crazy artistic language. The problem I see with a lot of fractal art is that you guys seem to ignore the rule-of-thirds. I mean, if this was a 3x2 rectangle instead of a 3x3 square you'd have more space to play with. You'd have a few more focal points and be able to play a little bit more with your geometries.
You have a dominate triangle because the bring blue lines reach almost from the corners of the image right to the center. I can honestly say If I just looked briefly at the image, I would have missed the face and hand because the image feels like there isn't much to it. Just a suggestion.
You are right! In fact, this is just part of the image. The bottom, back and sides where cut. It was designed for a book cover about the connection between science and art, and the missing part contained the title, authors and a lot of binary code with a hidden message; the canvas was set using the "sectio aurea" or golden ratio but after the mutilation now is just kind of square. After your suggestion I'm going to force myself to digg some photography concepts in my little spare time to improve the composition and rebuild it with the whole original concept. Thanks for stopping by!
