It's a shame that crane is still at the top of the building. I thought the top was finished?

How the Internet Works

The term "doctored" implies someone trying to pass off an altered image as reality. I ALWAYS clearly state the image is a rendering to give an idea of what it may look like, for the benefit of all the skyscraper fans on these sites. And I DO NOT profit, sell or benefit from the rendering in ANY way.

Fortunately 99% percent of all the hundreds of renderings I have done over the years have elicited only praise from the original photographer. On many occasions photographers have sent me images to have things added or rendered to complete a building. They have even commented how my rendering drove more interest to their websites and their work.

To clear things up. I ALWAYS credit the original photographer with their full name and include a link to THEIR website or photo-gallery page. They are never just screen captures.

Luckily not all photographers are afraid of how the Internet actually works.

If you are a professional photographer and expect to get paid for your work, then I suggest you jealously guard all your images. You should only post on your own business website. You should only post tiny thumbnails with giant watermarks and charge everyone money to purchase the full-size image. If you release images on Flickr for ALL the world to see to see for free, be prepared to lose some control over their use.

Do not worry, I would NEVER use one of your images again. I'll help grateful artists instead.

Doctored Photo

Sounds like a lot of rationalizing. I didn't ask for my images to be altered nor was I asked for permission for my images to be altered.

The watermark from my image was cropped out and a link back went to a different photo, not the photo that was changed.

The doctored photo is now appearing in more places and there is no attribution and there is no explanation that it is a rendering.

Grow some balls, swallow your internet pride, and accept the fact that not all photographers want you to mess with their work. Stop whining like a child. The incident is over and its time to move forward.
