    I am looking to contact whomever posted the following photo:

    http://gallerie-photo.chez.tiscali.fr/PltesCa....eri.jpg

    This is my photo. No permission was asked or credit given for its use. I consider this poor form. Although I have never denied anyone the use of my photo's, they remain mine and I prefer to be asked before others use them. This was my entry for the Best CP photo competition on CPUK. This is the second time I find this photo on other peoples websites. It is a great photo, and I suppose it is a compliment of sorts but this is one photo I want to be credited for. Thanks for any potential help.

    ah, thats a nice falconeri!

    if you type in D. falconeri on google.com, you'll see the exact same photo there on the first page at the top left. this photo has been on google for a while, but i never knew it was yours!

    Edit: i'm sorry tamlin! it's the top right, not the top left!

    Yeah, those are my photos, with the original file names intact. This guy changed the file headers, so there is no referal to either myself or my website on "HIS" photo.

    Like I said over at CPUK, now I am waiting for someone to accuse ME of lifting HIS photo for my use. Grrrrrrrr.

    Guess its time to start branding my stuff, much as I find that distasteful.

    Just look on the website where your photo is. Then see whose website it is.
    That is a beutiful photo. Im exactly the same as you. I let kids at school use
    my pencils etc., BUT I want them to ask me first. I hope that you find the idiot who has done this.

    a photo of an incredibly rare plant is a LITTLE bit different than a pencil.
