Ah I see, AP as in something else, most of us think of Amature Photographer when AP is mentioned.

I would have said get over it and move on (relating to that picture) but since the cunningly cropped the photographers name out, take them for as much as you can.

Contact the host of their website, explaining to them that someone has uploaded a stolen/copyrighted image taken/owned by you...you might be surprised by the result!
Not too long ago a guy stole an image of mine, simply edited it using an auto paint software program and uploaded it onto DA professing it to be an original 'oil painting' created and owned by him...I reported it to the admins of the site who looked into it and discovered the guy was in the habit of fraudulently claiming the work of others, to be his own!
I also discovered who the host of his personal website was and they too took the whole matter very seriously, taking down his site until the image of mine and any others he was claimng to be 'his work' were removed.
I wasn't really interested in pushing for compensation, just wanted the guy exposed for what he was...a ****!!

I would be checking that there were no other toggers about, at the same time you took your imageSmile

Seems a usual place to take a photograph

I've seen images on here, that looked so similar to mine, that I have had a second look, but they weren't

Looks like the same pic to me, All the buildings window lights are the same, only difference is the crop removing the top 5th conveniently removing the watermark.

The top image shows slightly more reflection in the water than the bottom image (look at the horizontal lights to the right of the bottom curve of the letter S), so it would be difficult to argue they were the same image (unless the owner can prove the bottom image was a crop too)

EDIT: Nevermind, looked back at your original link and see you have the original there

I think a simple change in size and play with the opacity in photoshop will show perfect alignment, very hard for someone to place his/her tripod to get an exact fit, never mind colours etc.
Fairly easy to prove.

I haven't read all this thread so I may be repeating whats already been said but to be honest that picture could have by anyone, it could well be the same as yours because someone was stood in the same spot when they took it....

To be honest you're not thinking it through. Guess you're having a slow day.

From your original image, yes, but not from the comparison post for the reason stated.
