    Congratulations Shotokan101. Do we need the permission of the 'people' in our shots?

    Congrats Jim :)

    Actually, my very first interpretation of 'people' had no people in the shot :)

    I considered a beach scene covered in a litter, with the title 'people'.

    I think it could be used to show how 'people' have ruined the planet ;)

    Thanks guys :)

    ...regarding permission - pretty sure that you don't for this sort of stuff :)

    Is it legal to take photos of people without asking? | PhotoRights.org
