Used it as a voice-over image in the film.
You'll notice I don't copyright or right-click protect my images, never thought they were worth it. So it's entirely possible they saw it on the internets and stole it.
Nothing unusual about being found, I've discovered. A guy for Fulton Country, GA saw it and bought rights to use it. So, too, did a local insurance gentleman.
Yup, not the same picture. Also notice the two green traffic signs over the highway: in the TV picture, they're under the curved skyscraper; in the other picture, they're off to the right (and there's even a third sign that is missing in the TV version).
Very similar pictures, but not the same.
SId - go through the PGA for quicker resolutionhttp://www.producersguild.org/pg/contact_a/
and while you're at it CC the photographer's guild. I'm sure they would just LOVE to learn a producer may be stealing images for uncredited use... http://www.ia669.com/
You'll notice I don't copyright ...
Did you put a copyright notice in the EXIF? Without that I can see a lot of people thinking the image was in the public domain.
The image appears at the 1hr: 07min 40-44 second mark in the film. Got a screenshot for you, uploading now.
I also looked at the credits, they credit the still photos to many, many people. If that is your shot it's also possible someone else gave them permission and passed it off as thier own.
Edit: Here is the image:http://differentseed.smugmug.com/gallery/1978874/1/137987712#137987712
It's not my image.
That's embarassing! I apologize to those I slighted in this thread.
Nice job, mate.
It's not my image.
That's embarassing! I apologize to those I slighted in this thread. Dang thing had me going. It's also similar to another image I took, but the angle's different.
I'll shut up now.
Of course it's not your image!Sam
Ummm, look at the shot. Does it appear to be a standard shot to you? :cool
Same sky, same shine on buildings, same traffic trails, same location (not a photog friendly location).
No, thousands of similar shots have not been taken.
And no, asserting it's my image is not a big call. Why on earth would you think it is?
Also, I don't feel the need to prove it's mine, not here, anyway.
As I said, the skepticism here is kinda surprising and amusing.

Quite so. But you were stating the image was yours. Is that still your view?
You posted here seeking comment. I didn't detect any feedback that was offered other than to develop the topic you started, in an attempt to assist you. That was certainly my approach.
You've generated a lot of views and suggestions. What do you plan to do now?
So I plan to sit here in embarassed silence and hope this stupid thread dies.
My offer of a beer still stands .... I'll meet you half way mmmhh somewhere in Kansas I suspect.
If you follow the thread, you'll see that your suspicions were correct and that I was wrong: the shot isn't mine.
