    Besides letting one of the mod team know of this but you have a thief on this forum....

    I was just browsing the net for long exposures and this forum poped up and as i went to take a look i was in shock to see one of my images being used by one of your members...

    This image isn't on my website as yet because i'd forgotten to get round to it, but instead it has been uploaded to a forum, it's not uploaded to my facebook gallery...

    This is the image in question....
    Oct08Photo34-Large Group Shot - The Photo Forum Photo Gallery

    ...and to prove that it is mine i can supply and un-edited version that will allow all the exif data, which i don't normally allow due to keeping web files as small as possible....

    It seems that this photo was submitted for the photo contest of Oct. 2008. And that is why it can be found in the gallery. The gallery of the person/profile that was set up exclusively for hosting images for the contests.
