It's okay to use the photo since you're not a for profit site. I just wanted to make sure that you understood the copyright belonged here. FYI, it's considered very bad form to lift photos from sites without permission. It's also illegal.

This came up as my wife periodically runs checks to see who's using what. As a rule we turn up six or eight articles a quarter and two or three images. Since we make our living as photojournalists we're rather sensitive about this kind of thing.

Catching any fish?

Sir, I will be happy to remove it. I was unaware that you were charging for this photo's use. It is a wonderful picture and as you saw I did give credit to you. Let me know if I need to remove it as my site is free of charges, I can not afford to pay for its use and do not wish to infringe on your copyright.
