  1. I am a composer and have finished a Brass Quintet arrangement of the National Anthem of Australia. While searching the Net for photos of the country, I came across your beautiful photos at this url. http://www.planetware.com/tourist-attractions/australia-aus.htm
    I would like to use your photos as background with my arrangement on a Youtube post. Would it be possible to use your photos behind my arrangement?

    Please let me know.
