I recently installed an old copy of Vue 8 on my Arion workstation so I could render an ultra-hires version of "Red and Gold" for print. While waiting for two new Autumn renders to finish on Shadowfax and Bucephalus I went looking through my old Vue files for likely candidates for new print renders.
That's when I came across this Autumn version of "Untouched that I created way back in 2008 but for some reason never got around to rendering full-size. Here's the scene rendered at 5K. What do you think? Pickle Jar or Gallery??
Ryan, I realize that it's officially spring (when I'm posting this), but I just had an idea. Have you thought about doing an Untouched Winter?

I love how you did the sunlight in this one. The dual-screen render is particularly beautiful.

Doesn't look good on screen.

I like this one the best of the three autumn renders.

Looks like a peaceful, calm Autumn day. It would be cool to see a Winter version with snow, ice over the pond, and lights on the trees.

I responded to this work immediately because of the serenity of the scene, the integrity of the color palette - especially the golden-orange light and the almost copper water. Because you can't see beyond the trees across the open water, there is a sense that this peace and beauty could go on indefinitely....

Totally gallery. I love this picture.

I think it's fantastic. You should use it also for winter,spring,summer.
What a great background they would make.Christmas?

Added to the "Autumn" folder on my phone (1440x1280).
IMHO worth of Gallery. Also, I would like to see a Spring version (I just assumed the original Untouched was set in Summer... BTW I love the Autumn and Winter galleries, I would like to have Spring and Summer galleries as well!)

I have always been a fan of your Autumn landscapes. This one is one of the best you have ever done. I can't wait to get the multi-monitor versions.
Will you be doing a "Full Set" of seasons of this image? I really think this particular landscape would lend itself very well to winter, spring, and summer versions.
Once again, Great Image!!!!!

I really hope you make this a Facebook background...really miss the changing seasons since I left New England.

I think this should be a pick jar version

I think that it is definitely worthy of its own gallery version, and am hoping that you'll do multis of it. Very nice!

I have always loved the summer version of this one and the fall is just as enchanting.

Definitely gallery, Ryan. I've always liked "Untouched," and wished you'd do an update. This is even better. Looks great in my autumn rotation.

Nice image, but I don't think this is at the same level as the original. Pickle Jar.

This image is great wallpaper for this time of year. Gallery!

I love this type of "impressionist" art - if this qualifies. I think it does. You should do more like it! =)

It's lovely; at least as good as the original. So Gallery for me.
Any chance you could do high-res versions of the original as well, though, please? Having the new 5K autumn version is great, but it makes me want a 5K version of the original to match it…!
