Thanks for your comments everyone! Tess you are too funny! BetterPhoto community, this photo of mine was copied off of another photo contest site, no right click protection there, and another person entered it into a county fair. It won a blue ribbon, but I received no credit. Tess recognized the photo when she visited the fair and contacted me about it. Having no positive outcome from this matter, I have limited my photo sharing sites to BetterPhoto.com, BestFoto.com. These are the only two photo sites that I know of that have right click protection for photographers' works. Taking that extra step to protect our copyright means alot to me. Nothing is fail proof I know, but I feel less vulnerable at these sites.

What a shame, Shelley that you didn't get the credit for it! This really is a terrific shot....and yes, it DOES look like he's smiling! Looks like he should be on the cover of some children's book...The Happy Fishie or something! Great job!

It's a great shot, Shelley!! You should say what site it was, so we can all avoid such things!

After you mentioned the right-click protection, I tried it and it wasn't protected.

That's strange Gregory. When I view my photo full size and right click, a message comes up that you should contact the site about all articles and photos. You don't receive the usual right click choices, such as copy, paste, etc.

 
Shelley Sanders

Aha, I think you right clicked the small version of the photo.

Thanks so much everyone! This little guy has since been relocated to another aquarium, larger but not as well lit. His iridescent eyes are not all aglow anymore and he almost looks colorless. I was lucky to get the shot when I did, but even with him not being as colorful, I still go and take a peek every time just to see that little goofy guy with his smile and big eyes.

This is a great picture! I work for a call centre in canada and they use a program to launch applications called Portico and this exact picture is the log in picture for the program.
