    The only reason to every be flattered on flickr is if Getty wants to sell your photos.

    They just want to use your work for free.

    If you want to see your photos printed, it's cool. And considering how many photographers buy cactus triggers it might be fun, but at least ask for some free product.

    In the second last paragraph it says they will send him/ her the new cactus flash trigger as a gift.

    it seems weird that they'd only give you a day and a half to decide, if it is legit.

    but if their web site is legit, then the email address is legit.

    but I guess their triggers are only like $40? I'd want more than that if a company was gonna be using my image as a reason to buy their product :o

    The grammar is awful. I'd be a little suspicious.
