Anyone hear of these guys before? One of my Flickr photos has been shortlisted for their publication and they want my permission to use it. No payment but I will get credit. I'm pretty happy with that as long as their reputable. I almost got taken in by the coffee table book scam a couple of years ago but took the time to do some research.

Here's the shot:

f/4.0
1/4 sec
ISO 800
No processing done on it. It's a little soft but not bad for 1/4 second handheld shot - I didn't drag my tripod around downtown Toronto when I was on vacation :(

Follow up... looks legit. Terms state I retain copyright and they'll link to the image on Flickr whenever possible. Also, the image will only be 150pixels wide so the softness won't matter much. I've approved the selection and await my fate in the final selection phase. :D

One of my photos of the Calgary tower is on there. They choose many, many photos for a location; mine is one of about 20 they selected for the tower.
