submitting photos taken by others
You can credit the photographer and show his/her copyright to the photos by using the "Copyright owner:" field at the bottom of the submission page.

The instructions there say "Leave this blank if the image is your own. If the image is not your own you must get permission from the owner before submitting it here. If you have permission, specify the copyright owner's name here."

It's just a polite way to give credit where it's due and I'm sure the photographer would appreciate it. They're excellent photos

 
Thanks Steve
I forgot to fill out that field (out of habit). I'll fix it right now.
