Mother Bored

By NDODS    
Good Day to you all at ePz.

Thank you all for taking the time out to view, comment and vote on my image 'Firewall' which I uploaded yesterday. A further thank you goes to; Lifesnapper (John), DicksPics (Richard), Sparrowhawk (Steve), Mex (Phil), PrunellaCara (Eileen) and Sweetpea62 (Lin) for their User Awards.

Today's image is the final in the series. I have enjoyed coming up with and creating them using a range of Desk Top Publishing Software.

To set the record straight. I have on occasions used images from the www which I was unaware of being subject to Copyright Rules. This was highlighted yesterday when I received a very polite and understanding message from a site moderator. I can only apologise if any I deceived anyone into thinking that my composite images were constructed entirely from personal images.

The main subject in today's image i.e. the Gorilla was downloaded from the web from a legitimate site called If you require any further information regarding my images please send me a PM.

I hope that you all have a great day whatever you may be getting up to.

As for me I shall be taking things easy after a rather torrid time yesterday.

Regards as always Nathan GrinGrinGrin

Enjoyed a lot your series. But about copyright I have a question. If I take a shot of an urban billboard ( being on a wall on a street, so a public domain); If cropping the billboard image and using it as my own picture or in a collage as yours, what's happening?; I know that you will not able to make an answer, but it would be a maybe a discussion subject on the forum; in the same sense the EU, now occupied with the refugee crisis, has abandoned for the moment, a very sensible subject for photographers, reported 3 months ago by Wikipedia: there was a project of a UE to prohibit taking shots, even in public spaces as streets or squares,. for copyrighted buildings ( a younger than 70 years old building is considered the property of the architect; so even it is your property - you bought the house for example - you cannot take shots without the architect or the rights owner permission). So no more modern buildings shots. By fortune this EU legislative initiative it has been postponed, but in the future the problem will come again. I think, maybe on photographers sites, this should be discussed. I have read some law opinions on the net and this could be a very very serious problem: for example how to know the age of the construction to know if it is allowed to take shots with it or no.

Brilliant, liked seeing them

Great finish for a super creative series, Nathan

Well personally I thought it was bloody obvious that the images were made up mainly of none personal images Nathan Grin and I'm sure that you did mention it somewhere along the line. And if www images are subject to copyright, then the owner's should take the time and trouble to make sure that they cannot be ripped off in my opinion.
But any way, a great finale to the series Nathan which I and many others have enjoyed. My award today not only goes to this image but to the whole brilliant set. I think that the owners of said images should pay you for advertising and promoting their WorkWink

I don't think PranavMishra quite understands the pun and spelling! Grin
I'm loving your very inventive titles as much as your creations, Nathan Smile Like that poster too! Hope it's not copyrighted.... Wink I didn't expect you to have photographed each element in your images, we all take others (non-copywrited) stuff and include it in our creations, don't we? Silviu sums it all up well - the whole issue is just getting sillier about what you can photograph and what you can't Sad

Yes - silly 'laws' of copyright taken to extremes. I can't see that it matters if you're not making money out of said photos and you also give an acknowledgement - which you have Nathan .... In fact - it's good free publicity/ advertising for the Photographer in question. I would feel highly honoured if someone liked my pic enough to use it. Eileen

ha ha ah-- Yes, she is a mother-- mothers are usually in charge of everything, like the mother board--- another great and amusing homonym manipulation!
