really? it looks like one of your boats.

damn, I just went there and it's changed...it was a stern shot of a boat on a river and I was certain you'd posted something similar here.

And now I went there and saw luc's amazing rows of flowers image...guess they have their gallery in slide show mode for the header.

Surfed IOTD gallery and found it was

They're a weird bunch at XFrog anyway. I was going to be featured artist half a year ago or so, and did some special new (XFrog) work, but they never responded or used it. On the other hand they steal work from here or anywhere to showcase their plants, while the plants shown are (indeed) not XFrog at all.
So, if you can get ST, do so!

Absolutely! Now that you mention it. They used two of my images as well (without asking as far as I remember), and I'm quite sure one of them was created before Xfrog even existed.

I have dealt with the XFrog many times, I have never had a problem with them, perhaps they have an intern or someone non experienced collecting images?

I just dropped them some lines. This is really confusing. They have great stuff, and I think I have (won :))) their whole collection.
I accidentally found my images there, after one of my kids decided to google my name (which I usually don't do...).

I've scratched my head a few times seeing my Speedtree work pop up on xfrog's site as well, but what the heck exposure is exposure. I have a great deal of respect for the company and it's products, some of the models are both technically superb and beautiful as well. The Modeler is dated and lacks the flexibility of Speedtree, I'd guess that it's not going to be developed further given the competition.
