Hah I know what you mean, it's quite an investment. I was lucky to get a relatively cheap copy second-hand some years back - it's ten years now since that version was released and it still wouldn't pay for me to upgrade, not as long as the old one still does what I need.
I am currently working on a slideshow/video and it will contain many different pictures. Now i have found some images on your site more specific here: that I found very nice and fiting to the content of my video. Now I kindly ask if i may make use of this particular picture in the aforementioned video. It will be published onto youtube. A If my request is denied I will not make use of the picture. I do just wish to use it in the video not print it but it will be in a non commercial way. In credits and description I will make credit to your site and you if you wish.
Nice reiss, I really like this one. Only thing I could suggest is that the background is too sharp - just as sharp as the main image (the ship). So it draws a bit too much attention because it has less detail. Some slight blurring or texture overlays on the background would make it better I believe.
