    I think you've misunderstood the implication I've made Bob.
    I'm thinking now, she'll try to use the 'sympathy card' trick, whereby she'll claim she's been under stress or whatever carp excuse .. etc, etc.

    Like one post questioned above .. she needed a crowdfunding scheme to create a book to sell?
    Surely a pro of her stature, with so many awards under her belt could easily generate interest in a product like that without resorting to crowdfunding?

    I think there's more than enough data out now to allow us a fairly accurate indication of her personality type.

    SHE deliberately flouted the rules, so there's intent in her work. You can't accidentally add commercial clip art, and other peoples art into your own work.

    No sympathy!!
    Well said! I'm with you on this one.

    In every field I've competed in, there is always someone prepared to win at any cost. They lie, cheat, and do anything to win. I do not understand them, and I'm sorry, I cannot give them any sympathy. I'll reserve that for their victims.

    As an Australian forum, you will find most members here are being informed quite well. It is being discussed a lot in Australia.

    G'day iphotograph and welcome to AP. I hope you can get involved here as seeing photos from somewhere other than Australia would be occasionally refreshing.
    But ATM I'm really interested as to why you should suddenly turn up here to update us on Lisa's stuff???? Do you really think you can influence anything by posting here? Did you get duded in one of the comps Lisa won?
    Now since you are here maybe you can take the time to post some photos for us to look at? I'd be really happy if you were into birds.

    Does this mean I have to return the award she gave me in our club competition last year?

    Thanks for the welcome! Sorry to post such negative news about a fellow photographer on my first post here. Was not my intention to fan the flames but only to share information. I have had several of my images stolen in the past by real estate agents, brokers, mortgage companies, etc. and it is a sore subject to me personally. My apologies!

    Yes, I am into shooting wild birds as a pastime when not shooting properties. I would love to show a few but most were lost late last year when my external storage device bit the dust. They were not able to be recovered. I will hunt around online and see if I can find a few in any of my online ports. I also shoot swimsuit, landscapes, severe weather, and scenics when I have a chance. And just recently I have started messing around with aerial video.

    I do have a couple of links to some of my real estate work if you care to take a look. It is a workflow that I worked on for nearly four years to try and perfect. I discovered by accident a flaw in one of the pieces of software I use to merge my brackets that allows me a lot more control during processing. All the shots in the links below were shot with a 5 shot bracket with a "twist".

    https://500px.com/jfertic/galleries/real-estate

    https://www.houzz.com/projects/users/jfertic79

    The other reasons I joined this forum was because I really liked the layout and I wanted to see actual images shot by locals of Australia. You guys are very lucky to have such great scenery at your doorsteps! I live just North of Tampa Florida and all we have here that is consistent is beach sunsets and heavy weather photography. Most of the better landscapes here in the US is found mostly in our Western Regions.

    So thanks again for the welcome! Looking forward to getting more involved in this forum here in the near future!

    A big to who discovered and followed though on this. It must have taken so much effort for Lisa to create this false world and I kind of have to wonder why when you always run the risk of being exposed?
    How many others haven't been discovered?

    The 'not admitting guilt' bit got me. She is still refusing to even acknowledge what she has done. Even to Marcel and the other artists she has stolen from, she has not even attempted to explain this.

    Exactly, she has handled this very badly. To have the audacity to get her solicitor to write a letter demanding an apology and monetary recompense, knowing full well what she had done over the years, shows both a massive ego and stupidity IMO.
