This image is described as "Fair Use" but the uploader does not say from where it was obtained. Consequently the rationale of fair use cannot be established. In addition the image does not directly relate to the subject matter of the page on which it is used - Marine. Further action is required to properly attribute the work or remove it from the article in question. KTDiputsho 06:37, 20 April 2008 (EDT)

There is the source. The image shows a "marine" scene which is the subject of the article Marine --User:Joaquín Martínez, talk 10:28, 20 April 2008 (EDT)
Mr Martínez, the image does not depict a "marine scene" it depicts a harbor in Alexandria. Just because there is some sea water in the image does not fit Fair Use criteria that the image should be directly related to the subject matter under discussion. If the article was about the Harbor of Alexandria then there may be a claim for fair use subject to the original copyright holder's license. There are many other images of water that could be used. Currently the image is just being used to "pretty up" a very short and insignificant article. KTDiputsho 11:03, 20 April 2008 (EDT)
Thank you for your help. It is indeed important. However I do not agree with the criterion that it is not a marine scene. It is according to a dictionary definition: #4 "a picture of a ship or a sea scene " your dictionary.com/marine --User:Joaquín Martínez, talk 11:58, 20 April 2008 (EDT)
Mr Martínez, I think that when there are more buildings in the scene than there is water then it cannot be called a marine scene. Your masterpiece of the week - Miranda - is a marine scene, but a picture facing inland stretches the bounds of the imagination. In any event, the use of an image from a travel agent's web-site to depict your revised definition does not constitute fair use. Whether you wish to continue with this I leave up to your own conscience. I will not argue the case any further as you have already blocked me for pointing out plagiarism in other articles. It can only be to Conservapedia's benefit that we actually maintain the values of integrity and honesty as conservatives. KTDiputsho 12:55, 20 April 2008 (EDT)
Yes, we are honest looking for the benefit of others. We hope we will for long. --User:Joaquín Martínez, talk 14:16, 20 April 2008 (EDT)
