    I've actually not been reading these, so I don't even think about buying anything new, but someone pointed out to me that my photo was used. Pretty cool. The Spotty dog below. Something I took last Fall I think w/75mm

    Did you get reimbursed or at least recognition for your photo?

    Nice Pic! I agree with Gary, they have good taste.

    It looks like they credited him below the photo, not sure about reimbursement though.

    No $$. I'm sure that's just part of the agreement for posting your photos on their site, so I wasn't expecting any.

    Yeah, most online contests include a term that the host is permitted to use submitted images for whatever they want for a year or more.
    Some also say you cannot license them to anyone else before or after submission.
    Read the terms carefully if that's important to you.

    Congrats on shot... Glad you got recognition :) I'm looking at this on a small mobile device... So could not clearly read the print below the photo
