One of my photos is being used for another photographers profile pic for a challenge. I wasn't asked and did not give permission for this. It's the Nature vs Manmade Challenge. Please have Heather Cob take my photo down.

Thanks Martin. I did a little searching after I posted and I think you're right. I guess I'll just be flattered.

Pixoto Challenges allow you to use any photo from Pixoto as a cover photo. These photos have the original copyright holders information on them and a link to the profile. Because these are only displayed on the Pixoto website, and always with attribution, this is within the fair use provided by our terms. That said if you object to the use we certainly could find another image to use and replace the one chosen by the challenge moderator. Just let us know.
