"A Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year" From Marbella Marbella Adelante.

A Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year” From us all at “Marbella Marbella Adelante” and a warm thank you to all our talented contributors who sent in such interesting articles and videos for our visitors to enjoy, and we look forward in the new year to reading new works from the skill of their pens, as the steadily growing visitor numbers to this unique site testify, as our reputation has increased accordingly.

As the editor of this site, it has been indeed a pleasure to interact with the authors  and try to give them as much backup as we can for their work; to answer the numerous emails we receive from visitors around the world and to help in any way we could, the charitable institutions we have worked with, such as The Children for Peace Onlus Rome, F.A.M.A and others.

So from Simon Schönbeck, and myself, we wish to send the following contributors and our visitors a very big “thank you” of appreciation and we look forward to 2012 to reach even greater success for everyone involved.

    The image you used in this article is mine and is being used without permission. The dreamstime watermark tells me that you did not purchase the image and I must ask you to remove it. You may not understand that "Royalty free" does not mean it is free to use.

       Hi Edward,

      Thanks for pointing out this issue to us.

      The image has been removed from the article and deleted from the server as per your request.

      The meaning of a "Royalty free" license may indeed cause some confusion, especially as several of our contributors are not native English speakers.

      Apologies for the misunderstanding.

      As a side note, perhaps you would be interested in becoming a contributor yourself? We have several photographers/digital artists who already expose their work here. You are welcome to join.

      All the best,

      Simon Schönbeck
