the 2 don't look nothing alike.

Definite ripoff. You could sue :-)

Clearly an infringement!

yours is much better. I'm seriously not really impressed by that gull photo.

I had to look very closely before I could even tell the difference. I'm guessing they took yours and edited it slightly. It's an outrage.

I'd lawyer up right away. This could be your ticket!

Send him a DPC threat to never ever photograph a water drop or you'll sue him for water-drop infringement.

Ha!

Surprised that that photo won, though. If I had taken that photo it wouldn't even occur to me to enter it in a contest.

I think the judges were giving this gull too much credit. Its not being too defiant to move. Its just too stupid to get out of the way.

That's where we get the word "gullible", probably :-)

@tate:

Now... had you taken a picture of yourself while setting up for and taking your shot... "defiant Photographer", perhaps in B&W, would have been an instant classic.

I agree. That wave looks more like a bucket of water being thrown at it.

I did an overlay of the two photos and only found a slight difference in them. It appears there was just a slight rotation to keep the photo from appearing as an exact copy. I think they also did a slight white balance adjust to change the color of the bird.

This is a gross infringement of intellectual rights/copyrights.

HA!
thanks for the laughs everyone!
I was also a bit surprised maybe the environmental headline could be:
"Polluted waters make birds deaf and possibly stupid enough to just plain not know what's going on."
