Encroach Detail by pyrascape Encroach Detail by pyrascape
First off, thanks for everyone who has left comments and fav'd this photo over the years.

Now, a moan: I'm getting a little sick of this photo getting ripped again and again. I don't mind people using it as a wallpaper or whatnot, but taking off my watermark and sticking your own copyright on it?! Bang out of order! If you want to use it, let me know and we can work something out! Otherwise I'll aim to make your life miserable, I can assure you ;)

Taken at the same scene as 'Encroach' , I chose to submit this one for the different framing and increased detail on the horse.

Originally taken on black and white Ilford HP-5 400 ISO film.

wow this is absolutly amazing! i really love this horse in this photo, and sadly, im not a huge gypsy vanner fan xD

I've found a person on Horseland (please don't think all of us Horselanders are bad for this, ^_^) who has used this photo in a Gypsy Vanner picture.

Here is a screenshot of the picture & the Horse's personal page: [link]

I have contacted the current owner of the horse and the previous owner (who is the Oakwoods mentioned on the picture). I have yet to contact the person who 'made' the pic, but I am watching her account -very- closely.

On a happier note: I really do love this photo!

I happened to come across a person on, and when i went to their page, their pic for their Roleplay charrie looked familiar. When I searched Gypsy Vanner on here, I found this pic and i knew why. I had seen this pic before. So, I asked them if they had permission to use it, but i got no reply. I just wanted to alert you about this.

their player number on Horseland is 2782813.
the pic url is [link]
and the url to the person's page is [link]

I don't like tattletales, but stolen photography is a no-no x.x

Thank you for telling me about this! It's greatly appreciated!

Whoever it is certainly didn't have permission, so I shall be contacting them shortly myself and seeing where it goes from there.
cineh Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2007
No problem ^^ And if you contact Horseland, they may remove it if you can give proof that its yours. i think. I've seen quite a few altered pics from dA and its rather annoying. x.x

Are you a fraud?
pyrascape Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2006
I am most certainly not a fraud :) I have the original film negatives for this, plus I know exactly where it was taken. That is MY photo. Thanks for bringing this to my attention!
ososment Featured By Owner Jun 9, 2006
here, what's going on here? I've seen this photo before on flickr. But it's taken by a woman whjo lives in the US.

Are you a thieving art leach?

I've been meaning to comment you on this, if I haven't already. Soooo beautiful. I love it! It's been my desktop background for awhile now ;)

It has a sad element to it, but at the same time, a very un-sad.

Gorgeous animal.

Strong composition. I love the tones, gives an oppressive atmosphere. I like it a lot! :)

good job.
piedpiper27 Featured By Owner Mar 16, 2004
beautiful.....simply beautiful, I cannot say anything else.
MalletGirl Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2004
I cannot even begin to describe the emotion this lends to me.
It's so lonely, so longing.
Right now tears have sprung to my eyes and are traveling down my face. I doubt I have ever seen such a beautiful horse photo, and trust me, I've seen my fair share.

To find fault in this is to meddle in perfection. The way his mane falls, the desolate stance, the depth of field, the sepia toning... All so perfect. All so beautiful.
