I'm sure you could get quite a few 12 x 14 prints on an office wall if you wanted to.I'd have offered her a hi-res version to make her print - and charged her accordingly.If she can source freebies elsewhere then so be it.
It's a beautiful photo by the way - i'm not surprised they'd like it hanging on their wall.

Is that a problem? Part of the reason I joined was so that I could decorate my room with a poster or two of some of the pictures from this site. What kind of compensation would you recommend for a picture?
The way I see it, yes. It's a commercial organisation wanting to use a photo. If they want a picture to decorate their office, if they went to a shop to get one for example, would they expect to pay for it? You also have to read between the lines. They are a commercial organisation who provide training material and use photos to illustrate things. I wouldn't send them a high resolution photo without payment either. The problem with digital media is once they have the file, they can make as many prints as they want and you wouldn't know anything about it. Payment isn't ther to make money, it's just to cover expenses. How much was the camera used to take the photo, maybe $2,000 or more. The cost of being in that location etc.
