When you literally open yourself up to the world XD

That's a pretty cool Lego statue, btw. ;)

Awesome! I'm just glad they are yellow bricks instead of red.

@ Skelly-Bone: Valid reply, except before you say stuff like that, perhaps you should think about the value of photography when you're taking a picture of someone else's work.

hi Guys! just read the comments. Yeah this is my shot and I took it myself. Just see the camera data if you don't want to believe. And I also posted it in the link attached by one of the comments.

I just want to be anonymous in that blog but now it was all revealed that I own that blog. hahaha!

People he didn't steel this. He took a photograph of it, people do it all the time and do people b*tch about it? No.

"The posting of this photo has approval from Mr. Nathan Sawaya"
Thinking that Mr. Nathan Sawaya is the maker of this, he'd be allowed to because he hasn't only credited, but has been given permission to.

Yes, and when I originally commented on it in January, that wasn't there.

why is everyone busting a nut on this dude? o.o if he wrote were it's from and who the artist is i don't see it as a problem at all. Giving credit atleast eh either way this is pretty epic

Because it's DEVIANTART --> A SITE WHERE YOU POST YOUR OWN ART.

It's true, it's great art, seriously terrific, but what's the point in making a 'photography' section at all if all you're going to do is take pictures of other people's work? And to then give it a new name and everything. The least he could do, out of respect, is give it the name given by the maker and the maker's name beside it. And then in the description maybe post something about 'using this for my blog' or whatever. Not take credit for the fact that he took a picture of someone else's work. Whoopediedoo, so what now if I take a picture of déjeuner sur l'herbe and post it on deviantart I can be credited for my amazing photography skills? You can find millions of pictures of this on google if you're interested.

THAT is why people are busting a nut on this dude.

Even though you posted who made it in the description, posting something like this just devalues what other DA users see of you.

He could have taken the photo, or not.
Here's a very similar photo from a blog post: [link]
I don't know how to confirm whether or not these photos are the same (pixels? editing? What), but there are other photos in his gallery that are similar/same as the ones on the same blog post.

ooh woops...Sorry man, I got a little too excited snooping around, heh.
Thanks for replying :). Your photos are wonderful.
Bentheechidna's avatar
They're the exact same.
notsoimportant's avatar
After comparing the two closely, yes I believe they are the same as well.
But now I think he owns that blog. In one photo in his gallery, "Wanderer" ([link]) was sumbitted in October 2012. In the blog, the same photo (same title) was posted on December 2012.

Here, the blog photo was posted 6 days ago.
