Hi everyone! It's been brought to our attention that a copyrighted image was apparently posted on the forum without permission of the photographer/copyright holder. This is a violation of our rules - not to mention being illegal and really bad karma.

Just to be clear - any images found to be posted in violation of copyright laws will be immediately deleted.

If you find a wonderful image on the internet and want to share it - unless it clearly states that it is a public domain image or is licensed for sharing under a creative commons or similar license - please post a link to the photographer's site. That helps the photographer - and protects us. Thank you for your help!

PS I've been reminded that some photographers prohibit deeplinking, which is linking to a particular page or image rather than to the photographer's home page, so please check for any restrictions before posting a link.
