nothing to prevent someone from taking a shot very similar to one found in a book. Since this is the photo gallery section, where its clearly indicated 'place for sharing YOUR photos', I will take it that contributions here are by the poster.
Having said that, nice, but too contrasty. of course, since its a 'candid' shot.. how to complain

the forum description specifically says "YOUR PHOTOS". can't be any clearer than that. Also, look at the posts commenting on his shot (eg: Makan 'great shot where u took this shot'). The original post was 10 March. Its now 21 March. I don't see any clarification....
Originally posted by mpenza he didn't say he took the pic though. he just asked whether singapore will have such lioness. but agree that he should have been more explicit that the photo was taken by someone else.
1. The thread originator should have stated explicitely that the picture is not his own if that's the case.
2. If the picture is not taken by the thread originator, credit must be given to the actual photographer. In fact, that might still be an infringement of copyright if permission is not given by the owner of the photo to re-distribute his work.
I belief this thread should be closed, unless the thread originator can proof that either
a) he has taken the photo himself, or
b) if the photo is indeed not his own, that he has gotten permission from the owner of the picture to re-post it here.
Sorry need to clarify for this.. I didn't mention that the shot was taken by me. I am just asking does Sg got such lions. Though i love the pic.. And I am unaware that the thread is only suppose to post pics that were taken by the user. Thnz for telling me that.
