I've uploaded the picture for the artist.

Their issue was trying to upload an image with dimensions 6912x5184. To get an idea of how big this is, you'd need 20 1080p monitors in a 5x4 grid to display every pixel in it.

This is too big for the server's memory limit to hold in memory when trying to process it, and unnecessary since it'll be resized down to a maximum of 1800x1800 anyway. The fix is simple: resize before uploading.

But yeah, the error message when running into this is rather cryptic. This artist isn't the first person to be confused by it.

Moody and ethereal, almost separate from the gross materials of the earth. If you took this pic yourself, artist, extra credit.

I think you may have missed something. Look closely at the top blade. :P

Unfortunately, I really can't vote up a pony picture in an OF round. The photoshop job on this one is cleaner than the other one, and I like how it undersells its joke by contrasting it to the largeness of the windmill. So I'll put it above the other entry that does the same joke, I guess. :P

Thanks for submitting!

Argh, thanks for catching that!

Okay, so this was a toss-up with a couple spots in my slate because of what >>Bachiavellian pointed out (I honestly did not expect that, especially with Roger manually uploading it from the link (yes, also I saw the link). Like in a review before, I'm a sucker for photography. But, unfortunately, with the small detail (Pony in an OF round) it has a tough time fitting correctly in my voting slate.

Thanks for the "Where's waldo Twilight?" piece!

Why is there another horse entry? Are you guys going blind or something? Is your eyesight failing?

Do you need a doctor, and if so, how much would it cost me?

Oho, props to >>Bachiavellian for catching the tiny pony!

This is neat but very, very subtle. There's no way in hecc that I would've spotted the pony if I hadn't been pointed at it.

Nevertheless, I like it, and for similar reasons as BIG OOF.
